The flight was on a Boeing 737 plane with IFE at every seat. I found that very helpful and watched movie and a half.

The Priority experience at JFK is not quite Priority - just 1 TSA agent checking priority customers and not all the time - if the security line is full, no one moves.

I'm not sure where the problem was - whether with AA or Royal Jordanian, but my luggage did not make it to Amman with me. In fact, there was a whole group of passengers traveling on American from different US cities, switching to RJ in Chicago, whose luggage did not come on the flight to Amman. My advice: be sure to pack enough for a couple of days in your carryon - and don't accept an offer to check your carryon to its final destination!

Boarding was a mess. Gate change at last minute. Then the PA wasn't working in one spot but worked in another and instead the gate agent chose to yell, not very loudly mind you, what group was next. Many missed their queue to board.

The take off into the air was calm and not frightening.

The flight we had scheduled with them was canceled and there was no email or form of communication sent to tell us before arriving to the airport. We found out while attempting to "check in." They were hesitant in providing food vouchers for us when our original flight that was supposed to leave early in the morning (6:30am), now left at (5:59pm).

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.

Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there.

Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline.

Although the bag was in the overhead bin and contained only a military uniform item, a GPS, and several pieces of mail with my name and address on them, I was told there was no guarantee hey would find my bag. A sixth grader with mediocre enthusiasm could easily have reunited me with my bag. IT HAD MY NAME AND ADDRESS INSIDE. Its been 6 days and the best answer I got was "We are not responsible for items you leave on our aircraft. We don't know if anyone even found it". Really? Is this that difficult to figure out? Can a strange bag left on a plane be overlooked for six days? That scares me.

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.

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.
