I am muslim, but I forgot to arrange the kind of food I would prefer during the flight, and the gentlement I talked to said let me see what I could do to help you about it, and few minutes later came up with muslim meal. I was really happy! Thank you all again.

Quick flight, beautiful day, interesting company sitting next to me very pleasant flight.

The flight was overbooked and they were offering vouchers for later flights, wasn't a bad thing, though, I'd have done it.

6 hour delay in SFO is apparently not unusual. Gate agent tells us that they will always bump that flight for other western regional airport since SMF doesn't have a curfew. United could care less and not transparent. And then they have the gull to tell us it was weather related. There was no bad weather anywhere in the western US that day! I tracked the plane backwards online and it never left Cali all day. United lies to shift blame away from their decision to screw all those on that flight. Advise: If you have this connection skip it, rent a car in SFO and drive to SMF. You will be to the good many hours.

I was so pleased that United offered the flexibility to change my flight before the chicago snowstorm without incurring a change fee.

I paid for seats on my original flight. But ended up sitting separate from my traveling companion on the new flight.

My flight to New York was delayed 4 hours. My flight home to Orlando was delayed almost 3 hours. That is absolutely ridiculous and makes me never want to fly JetBlue again.

United Express (Skywest Airlines in the SFO area) is simply unreliable. This time the flight was 3 hours late. With United Express (Skywest), the only thing you can count on are cancellations and delays.

Flight attendants didn't fret too much over passengers swapping seats to be close to traveling companions, though it did cause a delay in take-off, along with an equipment malfunction.

On previous flights, attendants would strictly monitor the one personal item and one carry on rule. It didn't happen this time causing several people to have to check bags.

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.
