Mediocre 3.6

Pros: Cheap no frill airline. Water in the bathroom and $3 for water to drink for a 4 hours flight.

Cons: Adding my pre TSA check on my board pass and not changing $80 dollars for one suitcase. CRAZY!!! $3 FOR WATER ON A 4 HOURS FLIGHT. We should have at least water for drink for free. Flight was delayed on top of all these inconveniences. Bathroom have no running water too.

Mediocre 3.6

Pros: Got us there on time and early both legs.

Cons: Plane was filthy ! Someone wiped a huge booger on the tray table and we had to clean it off. About half an inch of dirt, hair, crumbs and skin in all the crevices. Ewwwwwww. Chairs were so uncomfortable we couldn’t sleep. Chairs didn’t recline. Flight attendant from Chicago was literally screaming at people like we were kids in big trouble while boarding. Definitely worst airline ever.

Excellent 9.3

Pros: The seat had a lot of leg room (I’m short 5’ 2”, but was able to completely scoot down in my seat and stretch my legs out. I had two taller gentlemen on either side of me and they both seemed to have plenty of room as well.

Cons: I only had snacks, so I can’t comment on the food they had to purchase. They did have a nice variety of snacks though. The only issue was some brief turbulence, but that’s unavoidable.

Cons: My main comment is that the wi-fi didn't work for all passengers. One of the reasons I flew this airline was because they promise reliable wi-fi on the flight and despite multiple attempts to troubleshoot, it never worked.

Cons: Flight was delayed for almost three hours. Ver inconvenient for the traveler and the ones picking us up at our destination.

LAX
Good 7.0

Pros: I liked the entertainment that was available.

Cons: The boarding is very haphazard. Clusters of people just standing around waiting for their group to be called. So when your group is called there are already several people there wanting you to get behind them. Which doesn’t make sense since I’ve been there a whole 2 hours before all of them.

JFK
LAX
Good 6.3

Cons: the plane was so cold that many passengers complained and they didnt have blankets not did the turn the air down. I was so cold I couldnt find a comfortable poisiton and I was already wearing a jacket and long pants. Passengers should never be exposed to such drastically cold temperatures and ignored despite complaints.

JFK
LAX
Good 6.6

Pros: Crew on ground and in air were great. Great entertainme

Cons: They ran out of food to purchase. Not even one choice of food. They kept pushing snacks. Stock more food!!!

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.
