Flight attendants need some lessons in customer service. My job is also in customer service, so when something irks me, I feel like it is legitimate. Had a cup of ice water that I was sipping during the last half of the flight and ate one of my own granola bars. Was planning to give all my trash to her as soon as I was finished with everything, I didn't feel like this was unreasonable. Attendant stopped at our row with her usual "Trash? Trash?" I did not motion that I had trash, but I guess she thought I should be finished, because she made it a point to call me out and say "Excuse me, you don't have any trash?" I replied that yes, I have a granola bar wrapper but was planning to give all of that all together but she was welcome to take it now, and I handed it to her. She then said "And what about your cup?" I stated I wasn't finished with it, and motioned that it still had ice and water left inside. She then proceeded to roll her eyes at me, and without response moved to the next row with her "Trash? Trash?" The next time she came back down the rows, she actually had the audacity to skip my side of the row - did not even look my way - and I had to get her attention and hand her my trash over the back of my chair. Again, no response, and more rolled eyes. Don't be a flight attendant if you don't want to deal with people and the possibility that people aren't going to act exactly the way you want them to act. Be respectful.

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.

An hour plus delay at New Orleans due to weather at O'Hare turned into an extra 40 minutes dickering around the runways waiting for a gate. Also, as we approached final descent, we were told to return our seat backs to their upright position, which is kind of a dick move because the seats on this plane don't recline. Too much A/C.

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,
