I got more room than most, sitting in the front row.

Skipped for drink service. My eyes were closed, I wasn't sleeping, but by the time I was aware of the steward, he was gone down the aisle and serving the people behind me. Also, even though I am disabled, the steward did not help me to put my bag up in the overhead compartment, even though he insisted, the very moment I sat down that my bag needed to be placed up top. No visible plugs for headsets, or USB to charge phones. This plane looks older than I am and I'm 47 years old!

The cabin crew seemed to do nothing but try and sell you stuff from blankets, credit cards, lunch boxes they spent a lot of the flight just trying to get you to buy stuff. When we landed we landed so fast the pilot had to brake very hard that life jackets came out of the pockets under the seats.

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.
