Crew said they will let me know about blanket being available and never came back with even a courtesy reply. Don't like even the basic snacks are paid only The screen to swipe the credit card doesn't let us swipe if it's not pulled out and too tight to pull out. Initial reservation does not prompt to select seats. The online screen to reserve or change seats is very dumb, there is no explanation as to what is available vs what's reserved

I paid $190 to "upgrade" to what was only a bulkhead seat. This was VERY MISLEADING and I would NEVER HAVE PAID THE MONEY had this been properly identified as a normal bulkhead seat. I needed a seat that reclined further than a regular economy seat for a long haul flight because of a back injury and this seat recline less than 2". I could not distract myself with the advertised premium video because the HEADPHONE JACK WAS BROKEN and when I called for a flight attendant she took 15 minutes to respond What would have happened had that been an emergency?

There was no announcement of a delay but our flight ended up being delayed >3.5hrs even though Virgin continued to list it as "on time" on the main board in the boarding area. The same thing happened on our return flight where the flight was delayed ~1hr, but continued to be listed as "on time" or "departed" on all of the airport departures boards. The gate we ended up boarding through (on a flight to Newark) was labeled as for JFK. There were very few announcements and no explanations for these oddities.

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,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.

The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days. Fares are subject to change and may not be available on all flights or dates of travel. Some carriers charge additional fees for extra checked bags. Please check the carriers' sites.
