Pros: There's actually footrests that fold out like a lawn chair in economy and there's lots of leg room so you can actually put your legs up and sleep. First time I ACTUALLY slept on a long haul flight. Chairs seemed to be made of soft leather or some other super comfy material. Puts the older US-based planes to absolute shame. Super soft fluffy blankets, the flight attendants were amazing, courteous, hospitable, the food and drinks were awesome, loved the movies. 10/10 would fly again.

Cons: Flight was booked through United and had 4 stops. The second two were handled by aerolineas. There was a 48 hour strike in affect when I landed in Buenos Aires. My connection was canceled but I was not notified by anyone. I got stranded in Buenos Aires for 2 days. Not a fun way to start my trip.

Cons: There was a problem with the lights, but there was barely any communication between the crew and the passengers. We were supposed to take off at 8:20 pm, and at 8:58 pm, the captain informed everyone of an issue with the lights and that it would be 10 more minutes. However, it wasn’t until over 30 minutes later, at 9:29, when the captain said that it was going to be another 10-15 minutes which turned into over one hour because we didn’t end up taking off until 10:46 pm.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

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 prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons 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 don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires 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.
