The only thing I like was they board the flight early, big deal, so other airlines.

Greedy airline, want to charge you for everything!!! Suitcase, water, coffee, snacks, change of seat, etc. The plane was filthy with broken seats. The crew was unfriendly to the point of rude, not with me but other people.

Flight from LAX to SAN was good once we got across the airport from Westjet terminal to the Delta terminal. LAX is never simple! Comfort on aircraft today is never comfortable unless you pay the extreme pricing of premium seating.

Smooth easy flight

I arrived for my layover early, and noticed there was another flight currently boarding for my destination. I asked the boarding attendant if I could just get on this flight rather than waiting 2 1/2 hours for the next one. She said there were open seats on this flight but it would be a $50 fee to switch. This makes NO SENSE! I was standing there with a ticket purchased for the exact same itinerary, ready to board this flight with open seats, and I would have to pay extra? When this switch would open up a seat for the later flight for someone else in the same situation? Just a ridiculous way to charge people extra money for nothing. Very dissapoibted in Delta for this.

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,
