Okay 4.8

Pros: The crew was kind.

Cons: I sat in the last row, in the window seat, except there was no window at all. It was the only area of the plane without a window. The seat did not recline, and there was no window. It was claustrophobic to say the least.

Excellent 8.8

Pros: Crew did the best they could keeping us aware of the extensive delays flying in to LaGuardia. The captain made himself available to answer questions from passengers at the gate early on and I thought that was a great gesture.

Cons: Nothing could have been better. Any issues with the flight were delays beyond the crew's control.

Pros: I liked the free "meal". I chose the cheese. Reminds me of airlines 15 years ago.

Cons: Main cabin is not built for people 6 feet tall. My body feels awful after sitting in those seats for 5-6 hours. Reclining causes the seat to shift forward, creating even LESS leg room!

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.
