Cons: Crew did the minimum, when I asked for a water an hour after the beverage service the flight attendant became clearly annoyed. I did get the water. This has happened regularly on other United flights that I have been on. It seems to be a strategy to discourage passengers from asking for anything.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: The only positive with this experience was the gate agent(s) superior customer service. That being said they were stuck with dealing with a complete failure of United to provide guidance as to how the airline was going to deal with a technical issue with the plane. The flight was scheduled for a 7:00 AM departure, from what I could tell the flight finally left Portland around 4:00 PM. Because of extenuating circumstances myself and my traveling companion cancelled our entire trip. Given such a poor start we were unwilling to trust that any proposed alternative would be any better. In other words United seriously dropped the ball. They not only owe an apology to their customers, but also owe one to their hard working" contract" employees.

Cons: Communication. As I explained to United customer service, I find it incredible that the airline industry has built a business plan based on the misguided supposition that everything they do will go according to a best a case scenario, yet they appear to not have much of a plan when things don't work that way. Second, the idea that they have no proactive system to deal with technical issues a smaller destination. There are no mechanics/technicians stationed at places like Portland. I don't know what it cost them to have a revenue producing aircraft sit on the ground for 18-20 hours, not to mention the labor costs incurred trying to redirect 100 or so passengers. It seems to me that those numbers would probably go a long way towards paying to have a mechanic(s) on duty. As an aside, I paid retail for two first class round trip tickets. Given the circumstance I would like to see United refund those ticket prices in full, then and only then, will I consider using their services again.

Pros: The crew was very nice and helpful, I had a nice spot on the plane, and it went very smoothly, especially considering the circumstances. I was supposed to be flying to Seattle later on, but I had to change my flight last minute because of the virus. The whole Delta team was very understanding and considerate and it made the process much less stressful.

Cons: My flight was cancelled and rescheduled for a later time the day before and there was a lot of changing of gates and running around, but I understand that everything has been hectic and I don’t blame that on you, I know you’re all doing your best.

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.
