No snacks offered on a 6+ hour flight (unless we were willing to pay a over $5 for a bag of chips), no complimentary headphones, no pillows. The airplane smelled funny, the seats weren't comfortable and there was no wi-fi. From LAX to JFK I flew JetBlue and had complimentary wi-fi the entire flight. I flew with a toddler and found the lack of children's programing disappointing - and the handheld keypad was broken on one of our chairs. Flight attendants gave me the wrong information about carry-on sizes when boarding my flight and said the size they allow changes based on how full the flight is. What? Overall, VERY disappointing.

Smooth boarding and plenty of entertainment options.

The flight crew seemed uninterested, not greeting readily when boarding or deporting. A 6 hour flight and had 1 quick refreshment pass through the entire time. Not even more water. Rarely passing through the cabin. Usually sitting in back reading or using their electronic devices. Was same on the return trip 5 days later.

Virgin is the bomb - from the minute you enter check in @ airport, to boarding, to flight attendants' care, to the hilarious, creative yet helpful Virgin rap/choreographed safety video! I've also always loved flying Alaska Airlines, finding them another special airline that manages to make flying pleasant - in an era when it most often isn't, anymoret. So this merger is interesting & so far, so good

The flights to and from were completely full and I felt a bit crowded in my seat - but that's the price one pays for picking popular dates, times and destinations. The in flight entertainment and food/drink options help smooth any ruffled feathers : )

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,
