Nothing about refunding my trip. It costs $125 to switch. What a ripoff. Thanks for following policies and keeping my money when I wanted to cancel. I'll never use lousy KAYAK again

The refund I couldn't get for my ticket. KAYAK IS a bunch of dirtbags ripping off the unsuspecting customers.

Was told to go to international terminal but flight was leaving from terminal 2. I even called the reservation line to confirm. As a result, I Parked at the wrong terminal and added 30 mins to travel time!

Just one of the crew (a young African American female) was pleasant the rest were mediocre.

The wait was horrible, the boarding was delayed and the plane was hot and stuffy. Very bad first experience.

Two cancelled flights, a dozen delays, and 14 hours of travel later I finally had to rent a car and drive home.

Relatively comfortable plane, great movies (I watched four!), good timing between meals/snacks.

These planes are always SO cramped. We paid to be in the section with 9 seats across instead of 10 which was worth it but wish that they would just give everyone slightly more space - seems humane for such long flights! The group boarding on these huge planes always seems chaotic. Also it seems like it would honestly make more sense to start at the back and move forward. Would have less waiting for people in front of you to get settled. Wish the last snack had a piece of fruit or something with a bit more healthy aspect.

I didn't like anything

The fact that they over sell their flights but when you order them they say there are 3 seats left. So you show up to the airport and your flight lands with way more then enough time to get to work that day and younprint your ticket to find out you have no seat. That's because they sold more seats than they have incase someone didn't show up. But everyone did show up. So of course they find you another flight in LA which is a good 3+ hours away so you can spend another 3 hours to get to your gate to wait 2 more hours to go to take of so you can reach your destination making you late for work and making you call out. Just because they wanted to make sure every single seat was filled.

i arrived alive

My flight was delayed on the way to Puerto Plata on 9/9 which made me miss an entire day and I was billed for a stay at the resort. I was booked to a crappy room in MIA that I had to get changed to another hotel. THEN my departing flight from Puerto Plata back to the US was delayed 2 plus hours (as was the first flight) due to a flat tire that had to be replaced. I missed my connecting flight and had to be placed on the next flight to DCA which was the last flight. This experience was the worst. I do not have a favorable opinion of American, of which I have flown this airline for years.

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.
