Good 6.0

Pros: The plane was very comfortable and clean. The seats were larger than those on other economy flights. In flight wi fi entertainment was great, as long as you have a device.

Cons: The flight was delayed from 9:35 PM to 10:15. No announcements were made at the gate. We were all standing around (no seats left) and only had text or email notifications informing us. I overheard crew say it was entirely avoidable, and the fault of some crew that weren't at the right place on time

OK 4.0

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: I was bumped off the flight due to weight restriction and moved to a flight 6 hours later, it only took me 4 hours to rent a car and drive home. I am a 210 lb 6ft tall male. I was not the reason for the plane being over weight, I was there before boarding took place they didn't ask and I didn't fly.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing, sadly.

Cons: We boarded and then sat on the tarmac for over 2.5hrs because of “Misterious tape on the plane found by ground crew” Then we sat watching plane after plane take off before us because of traffic. There was no phone charger on the seats so with all the delays and me trying to notify everyone at the Wedding in Santa Barbara (my final destination) it made it difficult to reach everyone. I paid extra to fly straight in to Santa Barbara because this after there was a Bridal party Wine tour which I am missing. The next flight is at 4pm and I have all the Wedding dresses cholis/Sarees. I asked even for a Rental car at Customer service so I could get there by 4 at least instead of 5-6pm ad they said “Oh we don’t do that” I understand mechanical problems or weather delays but don’t say you found Tape randomly on the plane that you need to check out and then sit in line on the tarmac for another hour+ It’s extreemly upsetting and disappointing. If my Luggage for whatever reason does not arrive on my now later flight to Santa Barbara I will be beyond disappointed AND will have disappointed the Bride and 4 other of my Best Friends.

Cons: Cramped, the only thing they gave us to eat was a cookie (literally ONE cookie. Unless you paid extra - it was a six hour flight, even southwest gives you free crackers and peanuts), the WiFi was ridiculously expensive, they don’t give you a lid for your hot drinks so my tea spilled all over my lap.

Pros: The only thing that was okay was the entertainment. Decent movie selection. Drinks were also good, they actually give you the whole can if I want it.

Cons: Flight was delayed half an hour because the crew wasn't on time. Seat was uncomfortable for a 4+ hour ride. I don't know if it's because it's a cheaper flight that the quality of people also goes down but there was definitely a passenger that was passing gas.

Cons: United has started charging for taking on a regular size carryon which I do not appreciate. Additionally, I cannot check in online, only at the gate. I will look to patronize other carriers.

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.

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.
