The crew was very rude, I was told I had to store my purse, the person next to me wouldn't store the carry on baggage, I needed to take scheduled medicine in flight, I couldn't as my purse was stowed. I was delayed for over and hour and a half after arriving. I had to stop and eat in the airport. With chronic health issues addressed this way I will probably not use United again.

Getting to my destination eventually

An airline can't help weather delays but would have appreciated updates for the delays. 3+ hours, only to have another delay in boarding due to NO available crew just made a bad delay even worse. Logistics clearly an issue and positive communication would of help.

Sometime Southwest has poor direct fares, other times they are great. This one was exceptional. On-time departure and landing. Gate area in both airports was good, with enough seating for the full flights, and lots of electrical outlets. Gate agent was able to fix my TSA number and reprint my ticket, not all airlines can/will do this.

No charging ports on plane.

Not much. Southwest seems to care less and less about their costumer’s experience. Glad the electrical issue was caught before takeoff, but it should have been caught before boarding.

Boarded the plane and settled in only to be told there la an electrical issue and we’d have to wait a bit. Eventually we were told we could get off the plane and wait. Then we were told to board a different plane in a different terminal. At this point, we were told a new ETD every 15 minutes. Reboarding the new plane was chaotic, unorganized, and not sucure. We were asked our names and checked off a list - not ok. There was zero compensation offered to customers for the late flight that should have and could have been prevented.

Flight was on time and I received my checked baggage.

Seat was uncomfortable due to insufficient foot space. All (about 6) overhead bins in the rear of the aircraft were full because crew stored “essential equipment” in them. Crew was not professional. After takeoff they never came around to see if anyone needed anything and not even a glass of water was offered for the entire flight. They didn’t even ensure that everyone wore seatbelts on landing - woman next to me was stretched out hugging her companion while landing wilth unbuckled seatbelt. Entertainment screen did not wirk properly.

Again expectation can get in the way. And of course the airline needs for flights to be as full as possible. In order to be profitable in the long run. We all want them to be able to stay in business

Same point - the point was full and I’ve already clarified that .

I guess San Francisco ATC (Air Traffic Control) decided the plane couldn’t leave San Fran until way past our take off time. Then it takes two plus hours to get the plane here unload and refuel and rest. So I missed my connecting flight to Redding. Which meant I had to fly to Sacramento. Then I had a pleasant 3 hour drive on I-5 (can you sense my sarcasm?!) didn’t reach my destination until 5 in the FREAKING morning. Around 8 HOURS LATE TO MY DESTINATION

Flight left 6 hours late with only vague explanations. Simply, "we had to get our equipment in the right places." Attempts to standby on 3 other flights were fruitless and UA airport staff gave no direction or recommendations other than "were sorry."

Crew was nice. Flight very smooth

We had to get seats at boarding because of the flight delay. She offered us two seats in the back. I knew they don't pushback so I said no. She had given the woman ahead of me two seats in comfort plus. Did not offer that and was rude. There were at least a few empty seats in that area. As a courtesy to us having 1)been delayed in Costa Rica. And then 2) a long wait for the connecting flight in Atlanta it would have been reasonable to offer those seats. Which remained empty

Our pilot and crew were awesome! It was the second time my granddaughter had flown and she couldn't have had a better experience. She commented how nice everyone was on the flight. The pilot was informative and had a great sense of humor. I'm 67 and this particular flight was the best I've ever been on. Thank you, Alaska Airlines! You are my go-to airlines!

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.
