Not much

The luggage transfer from customs to the Miami LAX flt. was not clearly explained . I had to wait in line to recheck the luggage to LAX, the wait cut the time to lax flt departure forcing me to sprint over to gate 48 all the way across the airport.(about 1 mile.)

I loved that they gave us a pillow and a blanket for travel. They also had free on screen entertainment with some of the best movies on there to watch and even provided free earphones if you did not have any.

Safety, close to on-time arrival, although irrelevant since bags took 45 minutes.

No water bottles available for individual use. Crew only came through once or twice offering small cups of water. I'm dehydrated today with headache. No charging outlets in the 2018! OUTRAGEOUS. A bunch of bags still had not come down 40 minutes after arrival. Worst: just before landing, when the captain advised the flight crew to do a cross-check, it was not done, and when we landed, I realized my seatbelt was not on.

Seat was supposedly an exit row but in reality it was the seat behind the exit row and there was a metal box blocking my already non existent leg room.

Will not fly with United again whenever there is a viable alternative to my destination.

I've always wanted to go to all five Manhattan boroughs in one day. Thanks to Delta, that happened.

The plane broke down as we were about to take off. Delta rebooked everyone on to new flights because it was pretty obvious that plane was not going to be fixed in time. The crew did their best given the situation. The situation was absolute bs though - we had to take a cab to JFK for our new flight and do the whole security thing again and all that annoying stuff. Thanks for wasting 8 hours of my life, Delta.

Can’t think of anything nice to say...

On a cross-country flight from San Francisco to DC, you would think United could provide more than one snack option that is void of any nutritional value, and perhaps they could provide alternatives for their patrons with allergies. Is fresh fruit really too much to ask for on a 6-7 hour flight??

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.
