Pros: The crew was nice, the food decent. I liked the selection of movies and was glad for a blanket and pillow and thought the headphones were a nice touch since most people have Bluetooth and it doesn’t connect to airplane TVs

Cons: I felt this seats could have been more comfortable, & I was very VERY disappointed that I had to check my carryon especially since it was a backpack and was not designed to check. One of my cosmetic products was even damaged because I had to quickly check my bag at the gate, to my final destination.

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.
