We ran into a combination of traffic, parking, and other issues that drove us to arrive at our check-in at 7pm for a 7:40pm flight. We were not able to check-in given the 45 min rule. NO WHERE in our email did it say there was this rule nor were we prompted or told to check-in prior to our flight online. There's no suncountry app for check-in that we could find (only a visa one). We booked through priceline.The flight hadn't even started boarding and we were not allowed to check-in. We were re-booked on a flight that left two hours later, but that flight was delayed 3 hours. The whole thing essentially took one full night of paid hotel and fun in Vegas away costing us over $200 just in hotel plus we spent an extra 5 hours in an airport that didn't have a bar open past 9pm.

the flight was over 6 hours delayed because of construction at the JFK runway. This is clearly something that the airline knew ahead of time, this was not emergency construction. We should have been notified in advance and would have allowed for proper measures to take place. Instead we were notified 1 hr before takeoff. In addition, they allowed us to board when the runways at LAX were congested, there were more than 20 planes ahead of us, so we waited on the plane, on the runway for over 2 hours.

The lighting and vibe are always so much more chill than all other airlines. Please don't get rid of this awesome aspect of Virgin when the brand gets absorbed. All other airlines suck, and this is something that distinguishes an awesome company. The world sucks enough right now - we need all the good things we can get!

It is pretty ridiculous that airlines get away with treating cross-country flights as if they were 2 hours long. While “domestic”, they are long and often overnight. Passengers should get the same amenities as trans-Atlantic flights: pillow, blanket, and a meal. These rules should be based on flight duration, not destination.

A rep from Virgin was at the baggage claim and asked if we he could see our boarding pass. He let us know right away that our bags did not make it on the flight. He provided a couple option on how we could get our bags.

They offered us a $24 food voucher for not putting our bags on the plane. We had brought sandwiches on the plane so figured we could use the voucher to get water and a magazine instead. Apparently water is not considered food as we could not get a couple bottles of water from the Hudson News.

The flight was fine. I enjoyed the entire travel until the end when Virgin America lost my luggage for 2 whole days.

The lost luggage situation was completely unnecessary and extremely disappointing, turning a great trip into one filled with stress and uncertainty. Not only could the staff not confirm where my baggage was, they assured me it would be on the next flight. I had business appointments for which I needed my business attire, toiletries, and most critical of all, an assortment of supplements and medical supplies I use to treat a severe wound caused by a metabolic disorder. I have had to replace these things, and I have yet to hear from the airline about the procedure for reimbursement. I am extremely disappointed as this was my first flight with this airline. Please let me know how to proceed for filing a claim for reimbursement for expenses incurred during the 2 day lost luggage period. Thanks, Denise Wasserstrom

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.
