Excellent 10.0

Pros: The seats were super comfy, the flight was practically empty so I had an entire row of seats to myself! The complimentary movies & entertainment is awesome and kept me from getting fidgety during the long 8 hour direct flight. I honestly didn't even feel like I was on an airplane.

Cons: Nothing, this was a perfect flight!

OK 4.0

Pros: Airport customer support was okay.

Cons: Phone customer support was awful. My 1st flight was delayed so I was going to miss my connection. I needed to work with United to get re-routed. They were useless in finding flights, starting looking at flights starting in other states, took forever. I ended up getting help once I got to the airport

Pros: On-line entertainment was ok. It would have been better if they could notify you more clearly in advance about how to download the information you need and to let you know that earphones are not provided.

Cons: Seats were uncomfortable. Flight attendants were not particularly service oriented. For example, when I asked for a glass of water the flight attendant sighed and then got it. So, the result was fine but the manner was not friendly.

OK 5.6

Pros: Our flight was delayed over 2 hours and there was ZERO notification from the airline - we found out once we were at our original gate. Paid substantial amount to check bags and for seat assignment......after choosing seats when flight was booked online! Crew and flight were fine but will not fly Sun Country again. Too much hidden BS!

Cons: See above

Pros: The boarding process At British airways was another smooth one. However American Airlines is very terrible boarding process from New York to Seattle. Flight was delayed ( as always with American Airlines lol)

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.
