Good 7.3

Pros: The airplane was clean and the crew was very friendly. The landing was one of the smoothest I have ever experienced.

Cons: After paying for my carryon bag - a ridiculous $50 - and then getting nothing to eat or drink on a four hour nonstop flight unless I bought it, I ended up not really saving any money over a more expensive airline. They also tried to charge me for choosing my seats while I was checking in for the flight online. The website was unclear and not easy to navigate so I ended up having to check in with an agent at the airport which I haven’t done in 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.
