Good 6.0

Pros: The flight attendant was nice

Cons: Since it was an international flight we went to the international terminal and we were send back to domestic. This caused us to be delayed, though we had arrived early. They ended up giving me two boarding passes for myself and shorting me one for my son. More delays at the gate. The Air Canada confirmation number is different than the United and they have no record of it. Almost missed fhe plane until I found an email with the Air Canada number. Not good coordination. Air Canada and United need to do a better job of coordinating these reservations. And the 8 dollar snack was dreadful.

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.
