Good 6.0

Cons: We arrived 3_ hours early to check in for a 12-22 flight but had to stand in line much longer than necessary because passengers who arrived late for flights that were departing were checked in before we were. We understand that the airline is trying to check in passengers for departing flights so they can leave on time but they need a better system to avoid penalizing passengers who follow the rules. Our flight was delayed 90 minutes, causing us to potentially miss our connection in LA. We were not provided any information in flight or immediately upon getting off the flight to calm our worries about missing the connecting flight. So we stood in customs and immigration lines hoping to make it. Only after we collected our luggage, were we told that we had been rebooked on another flight from LA to DC (our final destination). We could have been given that information in flight or at least when we got off the plane to avoid being stressed in customs and immigration. The airline needs a much better way to handle delays for passengers who are going to miss connecting flights.

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

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 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.

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.
