Very smooth and organized all the way.

I was in the back of the plane, the constant flushing of the toilets and loud staff gathering made it difficult to sleep. Staff lacking customer care. Lack of new movies playing and the food/snack selection was poor - no snacks or even refreshments offered to passengers not even water, i had to buy bottles from the screen constantly.

Low price, new smart aircraft, comfortable journey in Premium, excellent service from the crew.

In-flight entertainment very limited. Not many movies, strange tv program content, no music at all. The flight was late leaving Oakland and the pilot didn't make up any time, so I nearly missed my connection in Stockholm. Aalanda airport was part of that problem as transfer security had a single line with one really slow person manning it! That all added up to a long line of very anxious travelers!

We boarded our flight in a timely manner. We sat in our very uncomfortable seats and were unpleased to discover that we did not have any in flight entertainment due to a major glitch in the in the screen systems. The flight attenders offered to scatter us around the airplane to no avail. More than half of the airplane was without entertainment and no options for alternatives. No one should be stuck on an crowded airplane fo 9 hours with nothing to do.

The boarding process was smooth, no hassle at luggage check in, the crew was very solicitous and eager to help,the seats had plenty of leg room, slippers were distributed, my veggie meal was tasty and there even was ice cream.

My TV screen was very slow to respond to touch and to remote control. There should have been a greater choice of current movies.

Great and frequent meals, pleasant staff. The airplane is in a good condition. I really like how they give you a small paper menu before serving food which shows you what the food is going to be served and the choices you're gonna have.

Awful tablets which are supposed to show movies and other stuff. The touch screen is awful, but there is a mechanical control without which it would be impossible to use. The feedback of this mechanical control is so slow that it makes you feel like being punished for something. I don't know why it's so hard to make a responsive tablet but it's a problem on many-many airplanes. These tablets are so bad that sometimes I think it would be better without one at all.

good service in spite of rather crammed conditions and short flight, UK newspaper was available, plenty of leg room (biz class consisting of one row in the front:))) - the lucky 4 in that 1st row were the only ones to get food, and also drink for free, it seems... and yes, the flight was short and otherwise uneventful, I was the 1st to walk off the plane.

The plane was a tiny oldish commuter jet with 2 seats on each side of the aisle. In "biz class" you still had to rub elbows with your neighbor, something other airlines with newer planes have sorted out, but allowing extra space between seats.... but overall, for a short flight (not much longer than an average subway commute in NYC), it really was not a huge deal....

The seats were chargeable. I paid a higher price for extra leg room. However these seats were the same as other ones that were much cheaper. Why charging so much extra?! False advertising?! This is unbelievable.

I flew round trip from Oakland, CA to London. This is a budget airline. You pay for anything extra. That said, the airplane was new, spotless and comfortable. The toilets were clean and well stocked with paper products. ( I have experienced quite the opposite on more expensive flights.) The crew was efficient and responsive. The plane was on time and the flight was great. Given the $700 price reduction, I don't mind paying to check luggage or bringing my own food, water, blanket, pillow, ear phones, music, sleep mask and earplugs. If you want a snack, drink, coffee or water, it can be ordered for airport prices. The snacks looked better than the food they served.

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.
