My flight was canceled and I was informed about it when I was dropping off my luggage. They suggested to put me in a new flight with stops (even I had paid for a direct flight). After a said no, they found a direct flight, however I had to wait in the airport for 7 hours! It was terrible. They should comunicate the problem in the check in, not wait everyone to arrive in the airport for that.

Nothing was good about this airline with the exception of the baggage crew that finally helped me in Washington Ronald Regan Airport

My flight out of Portland was canceled and it took hours to rebook. I had to fly American Airline to Washington DCA where I roamed the airport at 9pm looking for someone from United. The crew in Portland ME told me the gate person would have a hotel for me.... The baggage crew had to help me.

For a little over $2000 you get an economy seat non-stop from DC to Tokyo and back. Meals were good. As economy seats go, it's comfortable. Midweek the flight is about half to two thirds full. So you might be able to stretch out even!

Forced me to check my 2nd bag @ $55 after already paying to check my first, despite it being a normal carry-on. Unusually rude and unhelpful from booking through check in service. In flight was ok, albeit an older plane. Worst aspect was booking through justfly.com; expect to get fleeced on extras and relegated to an unassigned middle seat and generally regarded like a second class citizen.

My flight was scheduled to take off at 20:50. I arrived at Avianca counter at 20:20 and they said check in was closed and told me to buy a new ticket for a flight on the following day, for which I had to pay 500 brazilian reales. I could not get to the airport earlier because traffic, the day was rainy and the bus took an extra hour than normally to get to the airport. They should be more flexible with their check in. Today I asked an Avianca officer what was their closing time for check in and he said 30 minutes before departure. Last night I was at the Avianca counter 30 minutes before departure and they did not want to process my check in. I do not think to travel again with Avianca.

Didn’t make the flight because our first flight was delayed. We arrived when our flight was scheduled to take off but instead of holding that flight for maybe 30 minutes so everyone with connections could make it, we had to spend the night in Bogota. At least we were provided with hotel and food vouchers but don’t see how that is cost effective or good service for the airline when holding the plane for less than an hour would have allowed dozens of people to make it back the day we were scheduled to.

I am used to flying Frontier because of cost but recently traveled Delta and boy did I feel completely spoiled! Not only did my other half get our bags for free due to his status with Delta but the amenities they offer and the comfort of the economy seats compared to other airlines is a major difference. As a chronic pain patient, if I can find a Delta flight for a little more, I will be booking with them for sure! Highly recommend them!

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,
