Good 7.6

Pros: The crew was extremely friendly. Flight got in early.

Cons: Boarding was strange. Stand in a line, go through the checkpoint for "pre-boarding", stand in a disorganized group for 40 minutes in a holding area, then EVERYONE is told to board at the same time and it's a mad rush up the stairs/escalator to get on the plane. Not pleasant.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: I like that the flight was very comfortable & there was lots of options for entertainment!

Cons: Honestly it was probably the best flight I have ever taken!

Good 7.3

Pros: It got me to Iceland!!! The crew was courteous when asked but really quiet otherwise.

Cons: Maybe because it was an over night flight, the crew was very quiet and for 9 hours, only offered refreshments twice, and food choices could have been better. And really no leg room, even for my short legs. Didn’t move my seat back for 9 hours cuz I could feel the knees of the person behind.

Mediocre 2.3

Pros: There is nothing to like about Air Canada's Rouge service. Their sardine seat layouts are amongst the worst in the industry.

Cons: 1. Seat comfort. 2. On-time departure. 3. Boarding Procedures. 4. Pre-boarding announcements.

Good 7.6

Pros: Delightful crew.

Cons: Decent dinner in business class, but pretty awful breakfast omelette. I didn’t figure out what should have been complete adjustability of seats, & crew could not help,

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.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
