The second lady that helped me, Michelle Reilly, was SUPER helpful. I am so thankful for her

My first flight was delayed 2 hours, so I was unable to make my connecting flight. I am ending up landing in Portland about 5 hours after my original landing time. I will be missing part of a conference that I paid for. Major disappointment. The lady that helped me at first literally had me making an unnecessary stop, and arriving another 2 hours later, and I STILL would have missed my second flight due to the delay of the first fligh. Thankfully Michelle was very helpful, and switched me over to American Airlines

Plane travel is not my favorite, but I was impressed at how smoothly everything went. Had some decent coffee and a delicious caramel-filled cookie during flight that made me very happy. Loved having a female pilot and power receptacles in each row, too.

I wish we didn't need the United app in order to use the Wi-Fi. Or, I wish that I had known in advance, since my tablet is Wi-Fi only. Minor thing.

One of the flight attendants who stood at the front of the aircraft during boarding did not help us with our luggage placement in the overhead bins by our seats in row two. As a result we had to place one carry on several rows back which did, of course, make it difficult to get to upon landing. Subsequent to that, that same flight attendant helped a young man with his carry on with placement directly above his seat in the first row.Later on, I asked the same flight attendant if I could have some hot water for my wife (helps her with breathing). He came to me with a full cup of very hot, almost scalding, water and a small bottle of water. He did say that the water was very hot, but did not offer any ice to cool it. Naturally, we had no place to partially empty the cup and had to hold it for some time to let it cool. I did ask again for cooler water, but he said none was available.

I missed the flight as my first flight got delayed. When I got to the gate there was no Turkishairlines representative. 12 hours after the flight still at airport without any clear answer from Turkish airways.

Zero costumer service. Knowing that I might miss my first leg I checked the possible next flights and even though there are two flights next day, the prices tripled in 2 hour (from 1300 to 3900 USD). When I asked for rebook I was told that there is no available seat in any of those two flights. Did a quick search and found out there are seats but are left to milk desperate passengers.

I asked for help to check in luggage as my flight was leaving soon and I was essentially just told look for any son that stays check in without being directed. After 3 kiosks said put pf service and the lines were packed, when I asked for help again the jet blue advocate said “I can’t help you, you just missed the flight

I missed flight had to call customer service and pay even More money to get to my destination. I’ve been a very loyal jet blue customer both domestic and international and this quite frankly putna bad taste in my mouth

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,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
