Pros: The flight attendants were really nice and the food was surprisingly good!
Cons: The time frame. My flight was supposed to leave at 11:50pm. We left at almost 2am. In which case made me late to a layover I had in China which made me miss my last flight to Japan. BUT, luckily, a woman that worked for the airline in China was able to put me on an air China flight to japan, which again in very grateful for!!!!
We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.
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 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.
