How fast we boarded

We had an hour delay due to maintenance issues, they kept us in the plane for an hour without ac. A lot of turbulence throughout the flight. Very shaky. One of the worst flights I’ve been in. :(

Airfare was $28 each way

No plug ins, hard seats, and an odd 20 minute delay to get a off the plane even though we were at the gate. They said it was because of the "balance". Really?

I have a walker and it was stowed with the strollers. Was available soon after I arrived. Flight left on time and arrived early. Price was great, even with a few add ons.

WIsh they had pillows. I need lower back support and had to use my son's sweatshirt. I will know next time.

Modern plane

You have to pay to choose a seat. You have to pay for carry-ons, regardless of size They only serve water, charge extra for a soft drink The seats are uncomfortable and very close together. You don't get an option to pay a lower price for carry-ons at time of purchase when booked through Kayak

The crew was nice, boarding was easy

The seats and space are horrible, it is almost impossible to stay seated during the duration of the flight because the seats are so uncomfortable and if you are taller like I am you will have no leg room and no support past your shoulders

The food was pretty good.

They had no accommodations for our baby, and didn’t let us board first. It was an old plane with basic entertainment, TVs above the middle row and not all do them worked. It was particularly freezing on board. Some of the crew was nice but overall not very friendly or welcoming.

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.
