First class upgrade was suspect. Seats were all visibly torn. Very busy ailes to bathrooms for first class. One flight attendant was a bit rude. Other attendant was very nice. But didn’t feel upgrade was at all worth the money. Also had to try three times online and twice in person for upgrade.

We were fully boarded and then were delayed 1 hour without any explanation. They also had poor in flight service and very uncomfortable seats. No leg room at all and if the person put their seat back the 5 degrees it could move, there was no way to be comfortable because the seat in front presses against my knees.

Seats were nice and enjoyed the entertainment. Late flight meant loads of open seats and everyone was very happy about that.

Delayed a half hour to board because flight attendants other flight was late getting in, but they kept us informed the entire time. Wasn’t their faults. Once we were on the plane, our flight was delayed for an hour, once again the pilots kept us informed and it wasn’t their faults. But it was kinda annoying.

I'm not a cofee guy , meat and potatoes right. The carmel wafer cookie thing, not bad. I like peanuts one bag plain, one bag honey roasted perfect. Then the second carmel wafer came, I guess what choice do I have. The accountants have won, flat tasteless wafers fly best due to form factor plus most will not take another once they've had the first. Maybe several selections of the flavored wafer cookie? Imagine beer with a salsa wafer, wine with cheese garlic wafer, coffee and cheesecake wafer. In app selection or purchase by seat number. You customize your entertainment and refreshments. Yeah you had to pack light and get a millipeeper scan, but now for some reward. The new plane is nice, smooth surface seating, clean carpet. Not grossed out at all. Could not review the toilet, have never been. The wafer thingy is not refined enough yet. easy fix.

Flight was late leaving to MSP and on the return flight to San Francisco, we had to sit and wait 40+ mins just to get into the hanger. It was late and very disappointing!!! They don't serve any snacks and didn't come around with refreshments except once. They charge for carry on's, $40.00!! Huge rip off! They charge to rent DVD player. I will NOT fly with them again. Delta has all the above mentioned for free, they will be who I fly with from now on, they are MUCH more professional and customer service oriented and on time!.

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.

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.
