The plane was clean and we left on time with no delays or issues. The flight crew were very nice and there was also enough overhead space for everyone’s bags.

The lines are excessively long to check a bag, there was only 1 of 4 check in kiosks working, which created it’s own line. Also the carry on bag fee at the airport was incredibly steep.

Not much

The stewards, no service, nothing to make the trip enjoyable, at the very least. Seriously, for me to fly VA again it would have to be for free. I am a heavy traveler and my daughter convinced me to try VA, a mistake.

When we traveled from LAX to VA, we had seats 4A & 4B, group B. When the flight attendants called people to board, they called group A first which isn't a problem. The problem was the group A crowd. Some of them put their baggage in our overhead bin. We should be able to put our luggage in the overhead bin above our seat. If not 2 bags, at least 1! I think ppl do that so their lazy butts won't have to carry their bags to their seats in the back. Please make sure attendants notice that there should be space for bags for ppl at their seats. Or seat the ppl in the back 1st and then seat the other 1/2 after. Thanks! Overall great flight.

Airport crew did what they could to seat us together.

We should have been seated together from the time of booking but was never and option. Very difficult to maneuver through your system to arrange side-by-side seating.

It got me where I needed to go, albeit with a little effort and stress. Crew was pleasant. Thank you.

6 people overbooked, who might not have gotten seats. I was one of them. I recognize there was nothing I could have done either way but it was unpleasant to hear I might not get a seat on a flight I bought a ticket to a month ago, regardless of the price. And the return flight was dismal. Had to wait an extra 3 hours for maintanence on the plane (fine, would rather it get fixed than have an issue in the air) but we were told there would be vouchers worth some amount sent to our email after we landed back in cincinnati. It's been 3 days and I have received no such vouchers. It also turns out I payed $45 for a personal bag that was I guess covered under a personal bag? I recognize this as being partly my fault, but when I went to get my ticket "personal bag" wasn't an option, so I didn't think I had one, or my single backpack actually was $45 to take with me. Was not a terrible experience. Just not a good one.

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.
