The fare was maybe a couple of dollars cheaper than other airlines but

Your baggage fees are ridicules, your airline charges for carry-ons and if you don't do it on line, you pay more at the counter, but if you don't pay at the counter, you pay even a higher fees at the other end. So unfair!!!! I won't be flying this airline any more...........

Good prices and friendly staff

They ran out of gate check tickets for my baby's car seat and stroller and so we were last to board. Also when we got out of the plane, we were expecting the baby's car seat and stroller to be available right out of the plane. We waited a long time only to be told that they threw them with the regular luggage.

When I travel economy I have come to expect indifferent tolerance by the flight crew. I come as self contained as possible and lay low. This crew was honestly different! At check in I requested a emergency row or bulkhead seat. I wasn't entitled or hold status with United but it never hurts to ask. What was not surprising was that I was denied as the flight was full and there were FF status fliers in the wait list already. What did surprise me was the sincere courtesy with which the agent handled my request and delivered the "bad" news. Small thing, but I noticed. Once on the flight in the back of the plane the complementary food and beverage items were meager, as expected, but the flight attendants service we generous! I was offered a full can of diet coke because I said I was thirsty... a full can. Again small but noticed. I couldn't reach my ear phones and the attendant found a pair in upper class and brought it to me without attitude. Later in the flight when another customer asked for a headphone the flight crew announced on the speakers that if anyone had an extra pair, would the be kind enough to share. I had mine in the overheard and was able to "pay it forward" by returning the ones she had provided me earlier. the WiFi on the plane wasn't operating properly. The attendants tried sever times to trouble shoot it and then offered me information on a refund and another diet coke in apology. Not a million dollars, but it showed me I mattered as their customer and they cared about the airline. It was what flying was like "back in the day" a nice experience.

WiFi didn't work on either portion of my trip.

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.

The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days. Fares are subject to change and may not be available on all flights or dates of travel. Some carriers charge additional fees for extra checked bags. Please check the carriers' sites.
