GUM
Good 6.0

Pros: ANA was excellent in getting us on an earlier flight-

Cons: Unfortunately, they sent us to the "wrong" security checkpoint- at the opposite side of the airport. From the checkin desk, we were told to go to the NORTH security checkpoint. Walking the terminal again from where we came, we passed the SOUTH security checkpoint and made it another 5mins to gate.

Excellent 9.2

Okay 5.6

Cons: The fact that United forces basic economy customers to check carry-on luggage is nothing but a cash grab. Some of the overhead compartments were completely empty yet they force you to pay ?30/ bag. They also gouge you an extra $25 per bag if you bring your carry on to the gate.

SBA
LAX
Excellent 8.0

Pros: We were very comfortable except for the fact that our flight was delayed so that we were on the plane longer than necessary since we boarded and then the pilot was informed of the delay.

Cons: Sitting on the plane an extra 40 minutes. ( this did not delay our trip as we made our connecting flight)

DEN
Excellent 8.0

Pros: The UA crew from NRT to DEN met my (lowered) expectations. The best thing is the exceptional comfort afforded by the 787--it is hard to book any other aircraft if I have a choice! Going through immigration and customs at DEN is very efficient as well, and DEN makes a great connecting point.

Cons: I wish the NRT-DEN service were offered by NH instead of UA!

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.
