They moved us from the gate to have an "on-time" departure even though we sat on the taxi way for a while. Why do airlines do this? Are on time stats more important than customer comfort and satisfaction. Then they kept the lights on during the entire flight to "sell" their products. Please, give us at least a free glass of water. You are only cheaper than other airlines when you get a $9 fare, which you have to pay to have anyhow. So they are a bare bone airline, but charges are for everything. This airline stinks, I will not be flying them again unless I absolutely have to. I thought United was bad, but they are great compared to Spirit.

Flight was delayed , your website was slow and could not do check in over the web, when I️ got to the counter 3 hours before my flight I️ was still delayed because I️ couldn’t do an online check in.

Flying with Aeromexico to Mexico City was great! This airline is always good and of course it didn't disappoint me this time. The flight was nice and smooth, the airplane very modern and nicely equipped, it had a vast variety of movies available, nice food, nice timing, friendly staff, punctual arrival to the destination, smooth landing, etc. Everything was great!

I was seated next to the toilets at the rear of the aircraft and I didn't like that seat. Guys, you really need to do something about this, because during the whole flight I had people standing next to me while queuing to go to the toilets. So, I was 12 hours with people next to my seat, watching me all the time and pushing the back of my seat while they made their way through the queue waiting for their turn to go to the toilet. Terrible situation having people queuing next to my seat and hearing the flushing sounds the whole flight.

Hey, nothing is free. Not even water. So don't buzz through the aisle saying "food & drinks for purchase", no one's buying. Or "you can move up to a roomier seat for $75." instead of marketing that expensive seat, just get this sjow on the road. I just paid $50 to send a carry-on piece of luggage. Nickle-dime ppl to death!

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.
