I had a comfortable flight it was on time the people were congenial everything was good.

Kayak did not notify me 24 hours in advance for my flight itinerary. I was a little disappointed in this.

The crew was nice, quick check ins and boarding. They were very accommodating during the flight.

Although it was breakfast, not everyone wants sausage or the other option of fruit and yogurt. Meals should be offered in the literature provided by time, as in reality, if you're not going to sever the expansive US menu throughout the day. I was unable to order a salad at 9 am, regardless of being starving. Also I'm 5'1, there isn't enough leg room. Power outlets should not be a first class luxury, that is rediculous. We all need to charge our devices. TV should not come as an extra charge.

Very nice that my husband and I were upgraded to first class on this short flight. It was a short flight but we were very comfortable for that time.

I'm very upset I left an item in the overhead bin and had customer service call over as soon as we realized, but they said it wasn't there. There's no way, it had to be there and they didn't look very hard. I submitted a claim and they still haven't found it.

Flight attendant was beyond excellent, Yaniel, who smiled and greeted me helping me to my singular seat on the right side of the plane. He was very professional and kind, with a very well appearance and a fantastic attitude. He was quick with delivering my snack and coffee. Very pleased!!!! First flight attendant to ever make the trip as exceptional as possible. Thank you Yaniel very much.

Unbelievable wait times at LGA. Late arrival of plane, extremely late departure at over an hour passed original departure time. Waste of money choosing that ticket and time frame when it was clearly not a concern of American Airlines that I was missing my rides, late getting to CMH etc.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in CAD.

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 the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes 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 can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals 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.

If you have 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.
