Nice new a350 plane with great legroom. Airport agents gave us a letter explaining the delay to give the connection airline.

Gate agents made last call 40 min before scheduled departure. Then sat on runway for 1.5 hrs enough to miss connection and get stuck for 3 days.

It was so cold, my bones hurt. I had to sit with the blanket on my head to create a hot air pocket. My boyfriend was sick for half the time in Rio because of this. Also the food was the worst of any long flight I've ever had.

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,
