Not allowing a personal item and a carry on bag for free. Seats were uncomfortable. No free entertainment (like on Delta flights). Boarded and didn't take off for another 50 minutes due to slow loading of baggage.

We boarded right on time and the boarding process was smooth.

Our flight was delayed three hours because of air conditioning malfunctioning on the plane. We sat on the tarmac for almost two and a half hours, and it must have been around 85 degrees on the plane. There was a lot of miscommunication about whether we would be switching aircraft. They finally told us to deplane because we were probably going to switch planes. After 15 minutes in the terminal, we reboarded the same plane. Got to LA 3 hours late so had to deal with horrible rush hour traffic, which we had hoped to avoid had we taken off on time.

This has been my worst flying experience ever. I arrived to the airport at 9:30 pm for my 11pm flight. Long story short, I was told repeatedley by jet blue and tsa that there is no issue and that the flight was not going to leave without me. Ii ask several times that they please move me to the front to make it to the gate before closing. After being assures several times by tsa and jet blue staff i was okay, i finally made it to the gate and lo and behold, its closed,

Comfortable. Nice, new plane. Friendly staff

There were no new movies even though the pamphlet said there should be. There also were no meals to but, which is standard for a later flight, but was still disappointing.

The entertainment system crashed three times and had to be rebooted which cause you to start everything over. When I use the Wi-Fi for the Amazon prime option it was very spotty and had to reload quite a bit during the flight from JFK to LAX. They are by Miss clean the staff was good but the entertainment system and the movie choices were very old and not really very interesting.

No snacks offered on a 6+ hour flight (unless we were willing to pay a over $5 for a bag of chips), no complimentary headphones, no pillows. The airplane smelled funny, the seats weren't comfortable and there was no wi-fi. From LAX to JFK I flew JetBlue and had complimentary wi-fi the entire flight. I flew with a toddler and found the lack of children's programing disappointing - and the handheld keypad was broken on one of our chairs. Flight attendants gave me the wrong information about carry-on sizes when boarding my flight and said the size they allow changes based on how full the flight is. What? Overall, VERY disappointing.

Arriving early

Paid for an upgrade only to find out the seat didn't even recline nor was I able to get on the wifi. Then my Entertainment monitor froze up for over 30 min conveniently right after I purchased a head set. Can't forget about the very rude steward when boarding either. Luckily he stayed at JFK because a few passengers myself included had some issues with him.

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,
