The seats were clean; the cabin looked very nice. The plane got me from point A to B safely. smoothest Lansing ever!

Flight was delayed 2.5 hours. No communication from the cockpit, 2 out of the 4 flight attendants we really crabby. Undersea storage was unusually small. I’m 5’8” and my knees were pressed against the seat in front of me and the seats are hard. My legs were numb for part of the trip.

Staff member Jennifer helped me out so much, Thank You. I got a seat I wanted and there was some great room. For a big guy it matters. Jennifer deserves a Golden Star.

But even then the seats are so small, thin not wide. It is how they are built with these side walls in the thighs. That hurts my sides. So much that I had pain till I got home and an imprint on either side. Almost like a burning or piercing pain.

The crew was super nice! I forgot my headphones, they had new ones for me, I didn’t want to use a credit card, the stewardess offered to take my cash and run her card. I had tons of movies to choose from. I also got some shut eye. Overall. Great airline and service!

Again, despite poor flight schedule I made it on my connecting flight and it all worked out in the end.

Again, Kayak should allow at least 2 hours of transfer time when booking flights through LAX. I had to go from one terminal to another AND go through immigration and security. In order to make sure I had enough time to make the connecting flight, I didn't check in my luggage which lead to me having to minimize liquids and pastes in my luggage (no vanilla extract or tequila). Also while making the transfer I felt rushed and stressed out. I might search for tickets using Kayak but I would not buy tickets directly from Kayak if my route involves a transfer at an airport that I am not familiar with.

I liked that I was able to go to sleep.

When boarding I had no sets assignment which I never enjoy. It was 5 minutes to boarding, I still didn't have a ticket and the agent was quite rude when I inquired. In fact, for the majority of the time before and even during boarding he was laughing it up and chatting with ticket agents at a neighboring gate. Then I did board, the ticket was not clear what my boarding group was so I missed out on boarding early. When i get to my seat I have two people completely unwilling to move to let me into my window seat, but are all too eager to tell me to be sure not to hit them. This flight was after a long layover and after a long flight from japan and was a horrible end to an otherwise beautiful trip.

Wish there were less rows for more leg room in every flight. It seems rediculous we would rather cram in an extra 1-2 rows to maximize profits instead of charging an extra 5-20 dollars per seat. There is never enough leg room. Also it seems rediculous we board foray class first why not let those who have to sit at the back of the plane board first,it would save me time overall for boarding. Last there was no entertainment onboard. In a day and age where s flat screen costs 100 spats I'm suprised is not standard on every flight.

The scheduled plane had a mechanical problem so we deplaned for alternative plan. It took six long hours to get another plane in. Meantime passengers stood in line for hours to make other arrangements. It would have been appropriate for the airline to call in extra staff to help stranded passengers. We missed the scheduled connecting flight and a tour. We got in at 1:00 am, 12 hours later than planned. We had meetings next day and were very tired because we got in so late

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
