The service was Ok, but our flight was 4 hours delayed and it wasn't mechanical or weather related delay, the airline made a scheduling error, we almost missed our car rental and we didn't get to our destination til really late at night when it should been there in the daytime. Overall, won't fly with them again

Crew was super nice

Delayed 3 hours, boarded and was told would be another 30minutes because of mechanical issues.

The gate agent and the crew were great to accommodate the barrage of flight changes. Once we were cleared for takeoff the flight was very smooth and the cabin crew as well as the pilots did a fantastic job to ensure timely arrival and that everyone is accommodated.

I received at least 3 emails that that the flight was delayed: by 30min, 12min and then by 1min. Of course the mobile app did not reflect this (in an effort to make things more confusing). Once we boarded it was very very hot inside and the pilot informed us that we'll get cooled as soon as they start the engines.

The crew was helpful and apologetic.

They purposefully understaffed the check in counter, which you have to use. They charge for every little thing, even carry on bags and snacks. The seats might as well be lawn chairs. They are so close together everyone onboard will die from head injuries if there's an accident. I'll fly Southwest from now on.

The crew was friendly and informative. They were very helpful. The

The seats were uncomfortable. They were hard and so narrow I had to sit crooked in the seat to keep from getting banged into by the service carts and every person going by to the bathrooms. I'm not tiny, but I'm not huge either, it was just overcrowded. It was also very hot in the airplane the entire way from Phoenix to Spokane. My husband, who is always cold, was even hot.

Three hours delay. I paid for a upgrade to first class. But because of the flight change i didn't get to keep my upgrade and I had to beg for a refund. I have had two trips in the past 5 days and all flights have been anywhere from 1 to 3 hours late. Worst experience with AA I have had in a long time.

for some reason, i had to pay to gate check a bag. It didnt seem like anyone else did while boarding my flight.

My wife is hypoglycemic and requires food. The flight was so early that none of the terminal restaraunts were open, nor did the plain have food for any passengers accept first class. I've purchased a box on other flights, but this one did not provide an option for a box lunch or breakfast.

We have been on 6 flights over the last 8 days, all with Delta and we have already started telling people how wonderful the service was. Sherry on this last flight was amazing, working so hard all by herself as our flight attendant. We were very impressed. And the pilots all came out to say goodbye and thank you. All very nice...esp for me who needed some wheelchair assistance. We will certainly fly with you again in the future.

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.
