I was told repeatedly I was in the wrong seat and told to show my boarding pass because I did not appear to the stewardess to belong in first class. No other passenger in first class was treated this way. It was rude and embarrassing, and frankly very unprofessional.

When I checked in online the day before, I was only given seats that I had to pay an additional charge! I had already paid for my tickets when I booked the flight. This is ridiculous to check in and be expected to pay an additional charge just to get a seat! No snacks unless you pay for them - also ridiculous.

Same crew to San Fran and back 5 days later. They were WONDERFUL. Cheerful, engaging, remembered my husband and I. Were notable courteous and great to everyone. In short, the crew we flew with seemed to really enjoy both each other and just being around people. That means a lot when you are flying.

size of the seats. they are very narrow. That being said, I hadn't flown your airline in a while. your leg room is better than most.

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,
