Flight cancelled due to weather, the workers made it seamless.

Had to tack on extra expenses for food while waiting for the next flight. Should have gotten some type of vouchers to cover meals at the very least during cancellations. That would be next level.

The transition is so poor. I bought a ticket from San Jose to Hangzhou. Transit Beijing. you can never transite from Beijing to hangzhou on time. They will ask you to delay your trip and take another airline. Which is 5 hrs waiting. Plus they won't even say sorry about their poor service.

Went to check in early and was informed that a visa was required to enter mainland China. Was not informed of this when I left San Diego with a final destination point of Beijing. Was not allowed to board flight at all. Should have been informed upon booking flight what travel documents would be required to complete the flight. Staff was nice enough trying to help reconcile the issue but the it was too late

The stewardesses on board were not very friendly at all in general. For some reason one stewardess continue sending bottled water to a passensenger sitting next to me along the way from San Jose to Beijing but not one time she would ask me if I need water at all as I sat at the aisle seat Ava the other passenger getting the special attention was at a window seat.

Bathroom was dirty and not enough tissue paper. Favoring to certain passengers on board and not having any courtesy or caring for other passengers. Foods were mediocre and not supplying to the passengers at the departure location dinner time; instead of providing to San Jose dinner time at 7pm but the meal was provided at 1am after the midnight.

The fact that the in-flight meal was as cold as the crew, and you got to pay for that coldness. Just love it! You get me right?

The Montreal-Vancouver route was by far the worst. The attitude of the crew was denigrating and arrogant.

Flight back was OK but flight to Orlando was not. Travelling with s 94 yr old man in a wheelchair. Everything at Pearson is not conduscent to travel with a handicapped person. Poor layout, poor assistance, non caring people, long distances,, and final straw was air canada started boarding without calling for handicapped first. We had to stop them and then fight our way up the aisle with people all in the way. Terrible, just lousey. 3 and a half hours before flight we arrived and didn't even have a chance to get some lunch before flight. I give Toronto and air Canada the worst possible rating of any airport or airline I've ever dealt with. John O"Hearn

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,
