Cons: The flight attendant MS. Alley (?) was very rude in behavior. I was going to the toilet room; she stopped me on the way, and let another person behind me to go first. This happened in flight 630 from O'hare to Laguardia, on November 26, 2017. I was extremely disappointed at this behavior. Other crew members were very nice. Thanks Joe

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: The Steward was the only nice person , the rest of the Airline check in staff were cruel, cold and unprofessional

Cons: Check in boarding staff, the insisted I pay for my carry on. I had a round trip ticket. I did not have to pay for my carry on on my first flight. They made me throw things away before they allowed my bag on the flight. I had to throw away shoes, I was so upset and confused I did not know what to do. I had no money since I just paid my rent. They didn't care. It was embarrassing. Now I need to save up for new shoes. They did not care about me and my situation. I flew home for my sisters wedding, I missed 4 days of work with no pay. My Mom had to budget for the and ticket because I couldn't . The staff is horrible at Ohare. The airlines apologized to my Mom via email. Told her I could have a $50 voucher, I can't afford another trip. What a joke! Nick M.

Good 7.6

Pros: The pilot updated the flight as per the status of our take off time.

Cons: I didn't like that the male flight attendant just barked orders at the passengers, even a little girl who was trying to use the toilet while the plane was waiting for its turn to take off. And why should the flight crew congregate and speak so loud about which apts they are looking to rent or who is still living with their parents while I was trying hard to maintain a much needed nap.

OK 5.3

Pros: I loved my extra legroom and how high the ceilings were.

Cons: All these people bringing on all these carry on that don't fit. I don't believe they would all fit. This makes boarding twice as long and the plane gets uncomfortably hot. For someone like myself who only carry a handbag this is very annoying. I feel the airline should seriously measure the actual size a bag should be to fit and if it's bigger then no go. I also thing checking bags at the door should be charged just like we pay to check. People seem to be trying to save money to check at the door. I find this a disservice to people who do follow the rules. And delays are take off.

OK 4.6

Pros: Flight attendants were friendly (even though they didn't have enough food/snacks to purchase).

Cons: 1. One gate agent was extremely rude! 2. I was seated near the rear of the plane, and there was no food left to purchase when the flight attendant got to the back of the plane (no time to purchase during layover, because my flight into connecting city had been delayed, and I barely made my connecting flight). I was starving!!

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.
