Good leg room

90 mins late out of Guatemala, flew with all three toilets out of service even though fixing them was the excuse for late departure. Bus to pick us up was another 30 minutes late in CDMX. Ran trhough customs with no guidance, not a single Interjet person to help us as it had been offered several times. Flight to LAX was not even in the monitors at the airport, had to run all over to guess the gate. Gate agent was rude and obnoxious at CDMX, called for a supervisor and not only did he never arrive, I was threatened off the aircraft. Flight departed 45 minutes late, almost missed my LAX connectiong. NEVER AGAIN, WORSE AIRLINE SERVICE, LIARS FROM THE TOP DOWN.

Most things.

The boarding pass said it was an E gate, indicating Terminal E. I went there and was told to go back to Terminal C, which was where I was until I printed the ticket at the kiosk and it indicated E. I went back to Terminal C and there was no signage to explain what was going on. So I had to go get in a line to get to an agent, who sent me through the entrance to C gates, where, it turns out, there is a passageway to Terminal E. This was tiring, carrying my bags, and a waste of time.

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.
