Pros: The flight arrive on time. The airline did all they could to accommodate late passengers and even held back about 10 minutes because of the long lines at customs. Despite holding back they still manage to get us to our destination on time.

Cons: The entertainment was lacking severely however since this was a Sunday morning 7 AM departure most everyone on the plane slept so it was not an issue.

Pros: I booked my business flight through kayak, but looks like kayak is using Flyus.com who’s has a nasty customer service. Even requesting meals cost money. Air China can’t do anything with my flight and are sending me to the kayak.com. I will never again book through kayak and will be reporting this

Cons: Don’t sell services through Flyus.com.

Okay 4.6

Pros: I managed to get on an earlier flight with a standby ticket.

Cons: First, my original flight got delayed to an arrival time that would’ve made me miss the last shuttle to my final destination. My options were either to stay overnight in Vancouver or hire a taxi. Both options would’ve cost me at least $300. Thankfully I had a longer layover in Toronto that gave me some buffer. Otherwise, it would’ve been an additional expense.

Pros: We loved HK Airlines! It was such a nice surprise! We did pay an extra $155 pp to be in row 31 and enjoy much more leg room and the seats going back farther - in the direction of business class but not quite but definitely worth every cent on a 14 hour flight. The attendants were awesome!

Cons: Nothing. If you do row 31 you will have a great flight!

Cons: The plane had no A/C!..it just circulated hot air mixed with stale body odor from previous flight!..no leg room and the flight was 100% full..CanadaAir regional jet..and the seats were all narrow, and we were in 1A, !B...totally disappointed!

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: I missed my flight due to a delayed flight from denver to Washington. When I arrived I beg if there is a sooner flight to Geneva. They said no more. They book me another flight which has more connections. When I was waiting for my next flight there were actually more flight going and direct to Geneva before my flight. I even ask the gate personel if There is more seats avilable for one of those flight before my flight. They said yes but because I had a luggage it will take time to transfer my luggage and they will end up being delayed. United airlines is HORRIBLE!!! My flight were delayed and with that they should have more consideration for those costumers who were delayed. But instead of being kind and considerate. They had book me a later flight and the worse thing is the itenerary had more connections. Very Exhausting. The other costumer when we were in the line at the costumer service desk some people were given flight which are like 12 hrs away. How Horrible service. I WILL NOT FLY WITH UNITED AIRLINES AGAIN. Very POOR SERVICE.

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.
