1) I've traveled dozens of airlines with the same carryon backpack. The ticket agent required me to weigh my bag and since it was greater than 7kg said I'd have to check it.
2) Flight crew was running late which is entirely understandable. BUT rather than let the 200+ passengers know what was happening the gate agents said nothing.
I had 12 kg of excess baggage so was charged $400 cdn for a flight that cost $350 cdn for my seat and 20 kg . The reservation agent refused to give me my ticket back until h the excess baggage charge was paid. I boarded the 1/2 empty plane along with many, many chinese passengers carrying 2 or 3 bags, but as a foreigner, the company rules were enforced on me only.
We had to pay bag fees that cost more than our flights! Was also an international flight where bags are free on all other airlines. Finally, there was no leg room so the guy in seat behind me had his knees digging into my back the entire flight.
Kayak allowed us to book a flight that was impossible to make. We had two separate VietJet flights (one from Da Nang to Hoh Chih Minh and the other from Hoh Chi Minh to Bangkok). When I booked through Kayak, I searched from Da Nang to Bangkok so I thought they were booked on one ticket but they weren't. We had to get my bags in Ho Chih Minh and completely re check-in for our flights to Bangkok within a 30 minute period after deplaning. Luckily the flight to Bangkok was delayed and we had a nice counter representative that bended the rules and allowed us to check-in after check-in had closed but this was a very disappointing experience with Kayak. The representative said that had we booked through the airline website, the system wouldn't have let us knowing we didn't have enough time between flights to get our bags and re-checkin. I would think that Kayak would know this.
Some payment fees are estimated. Not all providers support all payment methods.
