Boarding process was smooth. Plane was nicer than i thought it would be for the cost. Smooth journey despite major delays.

Our flight was delayed due to weather. We were notified on our cell phones that the Flight was delayed. The Spirit workers at the airline desk were too busy watching videos on their phone to change the signboard. Flight attendants, although friendly, were disheveled in appearance.

The TV shows were good, even though they were old and they were shown in very small TVs.

Flight was delayed for almost 3 hours. The airplane was old (maybe 1980s) and even though it was huge (2 seats on each side and 5 seats in the middle) the luggage compartments were extremely small and there was barely any leg room. Small luggage barely fit inside the head compartments. The ride was bumpy and we weren't served beverages until the very end of the flight.

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.

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!

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.

I thought maybe it was because there wasn’t enough overhead space, but as we got on the plane the overhead bins were very large and extra space was left as they began to close up the bins for take off. It was extremely annoying and I felt I was given no choice.

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.

1) Boarding process was not clear on the ticket or anywhere (really not a big deal). 2) When reading about perks and restrictions after we bought tickets, the company mentions certain "classes" of tickets..i.e. "Blue", "Blue Plus" and "Blue Flex" but since I had already bought our tickets, I had no idea which type of fare we bought, since Jet Blue does not provide that information on your ticket information once purchased.

The employees were nice. That's about it for positive words.

As we were a few minutes from our scheduled boarding, the flight was canceled. The reason we were given was the weather, but the weather was fine in Chicago and it was fine in New York. No other flights were canceled, so the weather excuse didn't hold up. They wouldn't put me on another flight that day, so I ended up leaving the next morning on the first flight out but I was still late for work. They didn't seem to be very accommodating or apologetic and I didn't even offer compensation to those who had to stay overnight to wait for the next flight out. C'mon AA. Step it up! I would think that if you cancel a flight, you should help your customers get home the same day. Do whatever you can. I don't think you did whatever you could for most of us on that flight.

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.
