The in flight entertainment was great

The attendant made my 4 year old son and I wait for the beverage service to finish rather than moving back 2 rows to let us into our seats. To add insult to injury she was quite rude to me saying "you will have to wait. A LONG time!"

I told the flight attendant that my Diet Coke was flat and she just kind of made a face and said "oh". She never offered to open another can or offer me anything else to drink. I had to ask for a glass of water.

Flight was fine.

No where on my boarding pass or email confirmation did it say this flight was operated by Virgin. It says Alaskan Airlines. I waited in the wrong line for 30 mins and then was told to go to Virgin. It was stressful and I didn't have time to eat before a 5 hour flight.

5-1/2 flight from SFO to HNL and there was only one standard beverage service down the aisle. Maybe they would have brought a drink which could be ordered from through the seat back entertainment system, but this isn't any way to treat customers on such a long flight.

There was a really great selection of free movies and other entertainment. The flight crew were also really kind and helpful.

Being on an airplane is never great in general, but flying with a great crew on an airline that tries to make sure it's paying customers are comfortable and happy is.

Flight was on time

Overall, our experience was terrible. The crew people were rude and obnoxious. Before landing in Hawaii my grandfather stepped away to the restroom and when he returned he placed his hand in the seat in front of us to make his way to his seat and he cut his hand open because the seat was broken. The crew did very little to help us stop the bleeding and we're not the least concerned for his safety. I have yet to hear from the airline with a resolution.

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.
