People were allowed to board for quite a while and so there was no line and it was very relaxed. And we took off early which was a bonus.

The headrest on the seat pushed my head forward and it was uncomfortable.

For the second leg of the trip, I could not book first class. Then, a week later I got an email that said I could bid for first class. I did and lost the bid BUT I was wanting to book first class all along. Felt like a shell game.

Virgin is the bomb - from the minute you enter check in @ airport, to boarding, to flight attendants' care, to the hilarious, creative yet helpful Virgin rap/choreographed safety video! I've also always loved flying Alaska Airlines, finding them another special airline that manages to make flying pleasant - in an era when it most often isn't, anymoret. So this merger is interesting & so far, so good

The flights to and from were completely full and I felt a bit crowded in my seat - but that's the price one pays for picking popular dates, times and destinations. The in flight entertainment and food/drink options help smooth any ruffled feathers : )

The flight crew was good, and the flight was quick once we got on the plane - which was 1 hour 45 minutes after we should have!

I got on the second leg of a flight from Seattle to Palm Springs at San Francisco. First, the flight arrived an hour late. Passengers from Seattle said that the loading crew somehow dented the wall to the luggage area (?) and they had to inspect it before flying. When it finally got to SFO, we boarded the plane at first, and then had to deplane back into the airport because they had (over?)filled the wrong fuel tank. So they had to empty that tank and fill another I guess? Don't know if the tank they filled was on the other side of the dented luggage area. The announcements from the desk were puzzling, and tended to be every 10 minutes telling us to wait 10 minutes instead of giving a good estimate so we didn't need to stand at the gate the whole time. After about 50 more minutes we boarded again and the plane took off OK. But there needs to be serious improvement in communication between the crew on the ground (gas & luggage etc) and the pilot and the desk crew, and between all of them and their paying customers.

I liked that we flew directly into Palm Springs, which is my local airport.

I didn't like how tight the seating spaces were. I'm a thin, small person and I was not comfortable. I can't imagine how a taller or heavier person could be accommodated comfortably. I never thought I'd say this ... but I've now decided I prefer taking the train because domestic air travel is just too confining!

I was able to board early due to my premium status on American. The aircraft, a Boeing 737 was relatively new.

The flight was over half an hour late, and we were told the airline was servicing the cabin while we waited at the gate to board. When I got on board, I was the first to arrive at my row and there was so much trash on the floor, in the seats, and in the seat pockets in front of me that I gathered what I could carry to the restroom to dispose of it before sitting down. There was still tons left. When I alerted the flight attendant, she just shrugged.

Apparently United is the only airline that can't figure out how to upload TSA-pre KTNs onto boarding passes. I went to the SFO United customer service desk and they rambled through a few minutes of excuses before even looking at their system to identify possible problems. She even stated that United wouldn't comply with the federal Homeland Security program unless passengers paid for it... Which sounded like she was asking for a bribe. That can't possibly be legal and United should be ashamed and this policy made public.

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.
