Mediocre 2.0

Cons: Flight not delayed and clearer gate labeling. Also didn't call my name for my flight when I was one gate away because of mislabeling aboive another gate. Missed my flight for that reason.

LHR
Mediocre 3.3

Pros: Checkin

Cons: Absurd what happened with our in-cabin bag. In our flight from London we didn’t had any problems on the check-in and our bag was carried into the airplane without any problem. In the way back from Aberdeen the crew at the gate said that our bag wasn’t in the right size and we had to pay £50.00!

Excellent 8.0

Pros: Short flight , fine

Cons: In Europe we found this trip you had to walk outside and climb stairs to get on many planes, this one included. Tough on us older folks with carry on luggage. We didn’t have to do that once we got back to states even with United Express a small plane.

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.
