Pros: The Flight Itself Is Excellent!!!!

Cons: The Flight Attendant Service Needs Improvement Meaning "1st Class", And Certain "Types Of People" Are Not The Only Passengers On The Plane!!!! Meaning I Had Ordered Something To Drink, And It Took Them An Hour, And I Had To Page, And Remind Them Of My Order. Also, On Long Flights Like This "Food Should Be Served At No Additional Charge" Seriously!!!! That Is All!!!!

Pros: There was a cute male flight attendant with a man bun. Wish they provided snacks tho. Other than that, it was your standard flight, pretty efficient and uneventful.

Cons: You had to pay for headphones, so I had to pull down my hand luggage mane sidt thru all my belongings to find headphones. That was annoying. Wish there were snacks and that I didn’t have to pay $25 to bring my luggage.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: I was bumped off the flight due to weight restriction and moved to a flight 6 hours later, it only took me 4 hours to rent a car and drive home. I am a 210 lb 6ft tall male. I was not the reason for the plane being over weight, I was there before boarding took place they didn't ask and I didn't fly.

OK 5.3

Pros: A couple crew members were great and attentive. A couple seemed like they would’ve rather been anywhere else.

Cons: This plane is so outdated. For such a long flight, these days entertainment is everything. The movies got interrupted every time an announcement was made (as in the screens went black and never came back on only the sound) this happened to 3 movies! The “wifi” completely useless.

OK 4.0

Pros: I was able to finish a movie I started on a different flight and found an additional enjoyable movie to watch.

Cons: The airplane was uncomfortably hot. The flight attendant apologized and said it would cool off at cruising altitude. It never cooled off. The flight was full and very crowded. I was in the last boarding group even though my seat was in row 17. They required me to check my carryon due to space.

Excellent 9.3

Pros: The crew was great. The seat was adequate but NOT comfortable. The request/requirement for only the wheelie bags to be in the overhead and everything else to be under the seat was EXCELLENT. Thank you for organizing the amount of “stuff” people carry on to the plane.

Cons: I needed a little back support pillow...

Pros: The seats were comfortable, and the free movies were a pleasant surprise that helped pass the time. Flight seemed quick, considering it was cross country.

Cons: I wasn't able to check in online ahead of time, and thus had no assigned seat until I had to ask for one when I arrived, which led to me being left in the dark for several nerve-wracking minutes and not being able to board the plane until everyone else did. I almost didn't get a seat on a flight that I'd made a reservation for legit over a month ago.

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.

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.
