Mediocre 2.0

Pros: none

Cons: Cause the flight was canceled I have to call the airlines to get the refund, which not 100% refund, it makes me disappointed

Mediocre 3.5

Pros: Economy is just cramped. That's the way it is

Cons: Conditions beyond the control of Alaska airlines: during boarding someone's unsupervised child pulled the emergency alarm so everyone had to evacuate the airport and re-enter security. And then there was quite a bit of turbulence during the flight. Thank God we arrived safely.

OK 5.5

Pros: great crew!

Cons: luggage. what a nightmare. I waited 30min for my luggage (after a delayed flight) only to be told by a fellow PASSENGER that some of our luggage was directed to a FRONTIER CAROUSEL. I then had to wait by that carousel till I found it. so much for "bags in 20min guaranteed"

OK 5.0

Pros: Seats had decent leg space.

Cons: Not the airline’s fault 100% but getting a bag checked in Honolulu was a nightmare. Kiosks didn’t turn on until 9:30a and no desk assistance until shortly thereafter then immediately overwhelmed by issues with the kiosks. Needed my full 4hrs transfer, everything took a very long time.

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.
