Nothing. Never was able to get on the flight

Layover was too long between flights. Overslept at gate waiting for flight. Woke up at 6:15p and was not allowed on flight as they had closed the gate already even though plane did not take off for 10 more minutes

Flight was on time-ish, no trouble really. Call center folks were great.

Our original flight was cancelled with no explanation. My girlfriend was notified of this and I was not. When I called to get my flight details I was informed that I was to fly out on a completely different day instead. After explaining that there was no chance of that happening, the call center rep was happy to help. The flight was now an American Airlines flight booked through Alaska. About 3 days before our flight we both received calls from American saying that they did not have our passenger information. Apparently Alaska just didn't transfer that over. We also now had two confirmation codes as the returning and connecting flights were still with Alaska. Once we got to the airport on the day of I was able to print my American Airlines boarding pass, however I could not print my Alaska boarding pass on neither American nor Alaska's kiosks. It was a redeye flight as well so there was no staff at the check in counters yet. We ultimately did get to our destination, but it was such a completely unnecessary headache to get there.

Flew Alaska air - Plenty of leg room and much more than any qantas domestic flight! Empty flight and very short.

Flight was delayed. Inflight entertaining streaming system was not working. Too many people insist on not checking their luggage under, so we almost didn’t have space for our carry on by the time we were allowed to board.

I had only 40 minutes to get to my connecting flight. Then the plane was 15 minutes late. They wouldn't switch me to a seat that was open closer to front of plane and my bag was lost w important things in it that I need for this evenings show. I'm a full time musician.

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.
