Okay 4.0

The crew was really nice.

So many delays. My flight was eventually cancelled on Friday and was rescheduled for Saturday. The Saturday flight was delayed. All in all, i wasted a vacation day on Friday, I paid for a hotel in Denver for Friday night that I was not able to get refunded, I missed out on a day in Denver. It was a huge bummer.

Good 6.0

The crew was very friendly.

The seats were close together and not very comfortable. No entertainment, for example a movie for a 4 hour flight. You have to pay for everything. Only thing complimentary is water.

The dirt cheap, I can't believe an airline can operate at this low an airfare and still turn a profit-ticket prices

The hidden checked-baggage fees that were almost half the cost of the actual ticket for one bag. The non reclining seats. The lack of legroom. The feeling of cattle being herded into a slaughterhouse. The lack of friendliness with the RDU and MCO gate/ticket counter agents. The cost of having to pay $12 to ensure I sit beside my 5 year old son on the flight. Besides a free seat belt, having to pay for everything else under the sun. Surprised AC was free. Not even an in-flight magazine or barf bag. Which is exactly what I feel like doing after giving you my money......

Mediocre 2.0

Unorganized, confusing boarding, confusion with seating, unbelievable lines while checking bags. Literally the only redeeming factor was the price.

I love Delta, especially their newer planes that have screens in the backs of headrests and free movies.

Leg room is never enough. I'm 6'1".

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.
