Mediocre 2.0

Pros: The crew staff was nice

Cons: First off they were late then when it's time to board they change the gate on us and we had to go across the airport to get to the next gate. Then flight was fine when we landed the flight was smooth. Then we had to wait for another 30 minutes to actually get off the airplane. Not happy at all.

OK 4.3

Cons: Late departure, no headphones on board (thus no access to movies etc), and while waiting at gate to depart, plane became very hot with no airflow, Electronic ordering system for drinks also was not working And it’s absurd that a 6.5 hour flight has no snacks or food offered. Cheap Branson.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing

Cons: We were delayed for nearly 4 hours and were stuck on the plane while being lied to telling us “we’re up next to get de-iced then we can take off” then one hour goes by and the same announcement. Will never fly Alaskan again.

Mediocre 3.6

Pros: Sat in the Key West airport for five hours because of delays. Somehow the other airlines managed to get their people on and off the island. Although they say they can’t land in a 25 mph crosswind we were watching the weather. It mostly stayed below 20 mph for hours before departure

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.
