We had issues with baggage. Delta was supposed to transfer 4 bags to Disney for Magic Express transportation. Only 3 went. Disney tried hard to fix problem, and even gave us something to ameliorate the situation. Delta took hard line, wasn't helpful and gave nothing. It took 2 days to find bag.

Rick was probably the best flight attendant I've ever encountered! Granted it was First Class, but he went absolve and beyond with our family.

Plane was a tad run down, i.e.: cosmetically things were broken or falling apart.

I loved the comfort of my seat. It was easy boarding and getting off the flight.

What I didn’t like was the attitude of one of the crew members. They didn’t even make an announcement before the flight took off saying you had to go to a different website to look at the free movies. So myself and the passenger sitting next to me wasn’t able to watch movies unless we paid $10 for one of their pads. They made announcements for everything else especially to tell passengers to put their seatbelts on. Ms. Carly talked the whole flight about something.

I alway love flying Alaska airlines. Their flights are on time and their staff is friendly and professional.

I didn't like that you have to pay to rent a movie. It's provided through most airline carriers and I was shocked they were renting out tablets to view movies.

When you board a Hawaiian flight, your Hawaii trip has begun. In-flight magazine is impressively high quality. Meal with wine included is great. USB charging port for phone helpful.

Could not select seat when booked flight, or was moved. Would prefer meal be poultry, not beef, since a lot of people don't eat beef. Charging for blanket and entertainment seems odd when meal included. No power outlet for laptop.

Love the fact that they served complimentary lunch on the plane. It's a perk you don't get anymore on flights. It was a great surprise. Also, there were 4 of us traveling but one person bought her ticket later so her seat was away from us. Without our asking, by the time we got to the gate, they had moved her to sit on the same row with us. The crew was attentive and friendly.

It would be nice if they offered some of the tv shows for free. I understand paying for movies but tv should be complimentary. And as with most planes, it felt cramped once the person in front of me let his seat back.

The staff were very patient with very large group traveling. The staff were very cautious of them not burning themselves with the coffee. If when having large groups of non-speaking passengers, place their group leaders separate so that they can help translate for the crew and then not have to take so long to help them out.

Allergies to dogs and there was a dog on the plane. Couldn’t stop sneezing and had an aweful time trying to pressurize my ears from allergies. Very difficult when air circulation can’t be controlled at seat. It was freezing and no way to close vent or stop air from hitting directly onto me.

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,
