Seats don’t recline which is nice for tall people who don’t like having their knees smashed

You have to pay extra for a carry on, but I was able to bring my backpack on full of stuff for free so that’s good.

Paying for seats for no reason other than profit when there were lots empty- paying more for carry on than checked bags- how about a free cup of coffee? Would cost u a penny

From checkin to in flight service. It was horrible. The 5 hours flight with nothing, no tv, movie, nor complimentary snacks or drink. Everything need to be purchased, even a small orange juice cup will cost about $4. The only free is a cup of ice water. When I asked for another water, they told me they only give 2 cups of 2 waters. If I need more, I need to purchase it. Omg! Really? I seriously think they hire those stewardesswith a minimum wage and they have to sale stuff for commission. Why would they need 5 stewardesses when they didn’t even serve.

Airport waiting area was very nice with lots of different seating options. The boarding went very quickly, but that was because the flight was mostly empty. Can't believe how expensive the luggage was. I guess that is why the ticket is less expensive.

The seats were hard and the tray table was almost non-existent.

On time departure, actually got to Cabo early.

The seat in front of mine had a broken reclining lock mechanism and the passenger kept trying to switch from recline to sitting up and it wouldn't latch in the upright position, so he kept jerking the seatback up and down for the entire 4 hour flight. Also the rows were so tight, and seatbacks were so close together, that the reclining seat in front of me was 6 inches from my face.

economy plua has a reasonable amount of room, good food for breakfast, nice movies in flight.

they canceled our flight to hanaeda and instead had us take an hour later flight to narita which is a 1 1/2 hour $30 bus ride away which they don’t pay for. this caused us to miss our connecting flight to Asahikawa, the last flight of the day. The connection time allowed was not nearly enough even if the plane had not been an hour late and there are no flights to asahikawa from narita. yo have to transfer to hanaeda. remind me not to fly United to Tokyo again as I’m pretty sure the flight was canceled because it was not full enough. Even the narita flight with all the hanaeda passengers rebooked on it was not full. So i suspect this may be a relatively common occurance on the hanaeda flight.

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.

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.
