Pros: That water was served in a plastic bottle instead of a cup, because I know it's easier to recycle the bottle than a cup these days (also easier to drink out of).

Cons: I think for a late night flight the lighting in the plane should be kept on low all the time, because even a small change from dark to low felt harsh when it happened during beverage and snack service.

Cons: The flight was 4.5 hours late. No information was really provided as to why it was late. Check in crew at boarding was grumpy. Then headphones at seat didn’t work. They have a credit for $75 to use toward Jet Blue future flight, should have been a $75 refund toward that flight, at the very least.

Excellent 9.2

Pros: With the exception of comments below, everything was great.

Cons: Although I understand bad weather is out of the airlines' hands, cancellation of flights seemed to be called a little early (ie to places that we just starting to rain before snow). It took me four days to get home (mnl-rap) because of cancelled flights

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.

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.
