  • CheapOair - air travel can't get better than this!



    My travel from Des Moines to La Guardia via Chicago (and round trip back) could have turned out to be a full nightmare had cheapoair not come to my rescue. This was owing to the disgruntled employee causing fire at O'Hare airport leading to around 850 flights getting impacted. My flight got canceled too and I had to spend the night at the airport. The airlines did a good job of getting me a different flight and getting me to where I wanted to be, although 18 hrs later than expected. But what I didn't know was that my return flight would get screwed up because of this... More...

  • Refund for changing flight



    I had a medical emergency and asked CheapOair to change my flight. I also had sent my medical documents to Lufthansa before my flight date. CheapOair re-booked a new flight for me and I paid the penalty for airline. They said that after we talk with Lufthansa, they will refund us and we will refund you. Now, after 1 month, Lufthansa said the procedure was completely wrong. First Lufthansa should refund me and then I should re-book, while CheapOair first re-booked and then called Lufthansa for my refund. So, I could't receive $300 refund. It's CheapOair fault and they should be... More...

  • the refund was never arrived and the phone hungs up on you every 10 minutes



    I booked a flight on july 18 and cancelled it 1 week after. I called them to cancel it , they told me I would have to pay 50 dollars but could only can refund 200 dollars on the 280 dollars I payed,and will get refunded in 5- 10 businesses days, . I waited never seen the refund on my bank statement. I called them again, which took me a while to finish what I had to say, the connection is always lost, they asked for your number before the connection is lost but never call you back. So, you have to call back and talk to many agents before getting any responses. I talked to them again, they... More...

    I have never booked with cheapoair before this would be my first time & now my last! I feel lied to & I was so confused today while on my flight. I had booked a flight from Dallas/forth worth to Boise & n my itinerary it said I would be making 3 stops. Going from Dallas to Houston than Houston to Kansas & lastly Kansas to Boise. I arrived in Kansas only to be confused because my gate said it was departuring to Phoenix when nowhere was I told I would be making another stop.

  • False Advertising



    Totally agree with the above individual. Today I sat down on 2 separate occasions to book a flight from IAD to SAT and both times after I entered my CC information, the price had changed from $355.20 (taxes included) to $726.70. When I called customer support they said the price had changed at the airlines....total baloney. I was to travel on Friday (25th) and return on the 29th!!! This has also happened to my friend in the last couple of months. More...

  • changing flight



    They are the worst company ever. I flew a lot in my life and I bought almost hundred ticket. They screwed me because They sold me a ticket without chance on changing the booking date. Then I called directly the air companies and they extend a little bit the booking date but not enough. So, be careful with CheapOair because they are not able to re-booked your flight if you have a problem. More...

  • Worst customer service you will ever ger



    We had a very bad, a nightmare experience with Cheapoair. Airline offered a full refund but Cheapoair made it look like they do not know what to do as if this is the first time they come across cancellation and refunds Waiting on the line for a customer service on the phone takes ages and even when youare with them on the phone already they make you wait even more while they "checking" . Simply the worst service I have ever encountered. More...

  • Terrible Product and Service



    I purchased a flight through cheapoair.com and made the unpleasant discovery that I had to pay for my checked bag, despite having checked with cheapoair and the airline first to avoid that problem. Come to find out, I had purchased a discounted ticket that did not allow me any checked bag. I am very displeased that cheapoair.com never communicated to me that i had purchased a discounted ticket. The only thing they did to help was give me a $15USD refund. Otherwise, cheapoair insists it was not their fault and I should have known. How could I have known if nobody told me? I'm severely...

    Cheapo Air did a good job finding me a fair-priced ticket fairy short notice - helped get my frequent flyer miles credited, which got me an upgrade to Economy Plus. Also got me some exercise walking from terninal 4 - 6 tin LAX to switch airlines between legs - plenty of time for the walk tho! All in all, happy flyer here. More...

  • Great Service



    I had to travel on a short notice and I had been looking for good deals. I didn't have time to look for good prices for to and fro in airlines, but cheapoair showed be great deals. My friends were surprised when I told them the price as they used to get the same deal even if they book few months earlier. My entire trip was pleasant as the seat assignment was done as per my request. Need to appreciate their service when they called me up and confirmed my itinerary. I would definitely consider cheapoair when I travel abroad next time. More...

  • Through-checking luggage



    I have paid for a return airfare from LAX to BOG at a cost of around $800. I have since tried various methods of contacting cheapOair and I have either received no response (via emails) or the 24/7 online chat has begun and then disconnected in the middle of the conversation without a resolution of my query, which is this; Can I through-check my luggage from LAX to BOG even though there is a change of plane and airline in DFW? My airfare from LAX to BOG has one e-ticket number assigned to it, however there is a stop-over in DFW for 50 mins where I will need to change planes from an... More...

  • Ripoff



    On March 11, 2014 my friend and I had called customer service to book our flight to Milan, Italy and seats. For some reason they charged an extra fee of $99.12 for seating arrangements. My flight was booked for June 5, 2014 and returning June 13, 2014 on the day of my flight neither my friend and I sat next to each other on any flights. On top of that Jet Airways told me that they did not book seats. So, basically I was ripped off from Cheapoair. Never again will I use their websites. More...

  • Bait and Switch Operation



    Complete bait & switch operation. I selected a departure and return date for a long weekend trip (depart Fri return Sun). Got a good price & selected flights. After entering credit card info, I got message that there was a problem with the #; had to re-enter credit card information. This time it worked. The problem is, I had to also re-select the flight buttons. The screen I was given to do so gave me the same flight #s, same time, same departure date but on a different return date - three weeks after the date I originally selected. I did not notice this difference, I certainly... More...

    RE: Booking #22000731 San Francisco to Melbourne Date June 10th. I booked and paid my airfare with Cheapoair on June 5th. I realized I needed to change this airfare date and rang back within 30 minutes. I spoke to an operator who changed the date from June 9th to June 10th and said that it would cost $250 USD. I informed the operator to use the same credit card used for the original booking. This operator sent me a confirmation email with an Air New Zealand confirmation number #6FAU8H. Yesterday, when I arrived to check in at Air New Zealand counter in San Francisco, I was informed... More...

  • Poor business tactics by cheapoair



    The last two times I have tried to book when I go to pay my credit card verification number is flagged as incorrect - it is not - phone rep told me this is what happens if flight isno longer available - happened one with two tickets left , then again with one ticket left, the on hold a long time only to be told this is what your policy is - to say my credit card info is incorrect when you don't have the ticket to sell. Agent also said system does not update quickly enough - then why did the number do seats change. Classic bait and switch, dishonorable business practice. More...

    Written to Cheapoair which did not accept my review- guess we know why they gave a four star rating on their website! I am so disappointed w my recent experience using your website which is very misleading! When trying to rectify the situation the rep could only offer me the same flight dates at $100. more or different dates at $50. more cutting our trip short. Wile talkingcto him on the phone I found the flight on my dates for the price I wanted and dates I wanted for the original price w Jetblue- which I am already flying w you.

  • I REALLY HOPE IT'S NOT A SCAM



    I just booked a ticket from Cheapoair: reference number 21677658, from Ho Chi Minh to Boston. I received the receipt and an email saying the verification process has been successful. HOWEVER, another email came saying, my card is declined! I contacted my bank and the bank confirmed the amount of $1187.78 has been deducted like what's on the receipt when I first bought it. I called Cheapoair and got informed that Cheapoair didn't charge my card. IS THIS A SCAM??? P.S. I made the booking on May 18 2014. More...

The next morning, I checked again and found the exact same flight on their website, and on Expedia.com for 70USD cheaper. I made a pdf of the ticket, showing that it was available to be booked (it even said 4 more tickets available at this price) and emailed them as per their instructions for the best price guarantee. Not receiving any reply from them after a week, I emailed again, and after no response, finally called them. During the call they tried to convince me that that flight at... More...

  • Using a bad situation to price gouge.



    I booked an international flight through CheapOair. I told them the day I wanted to return from my trip. The flight was booked to leave my destination on that day, and land 2 days later, not to actually return on that date. I attempted to contact them to change the flight and had already found a flight on their website (10 minutes after the original booking) that would fit my needs. The customer service rep ignored my requests for that particular flight for hours. Instead she told me all of the options that were best for me, not letting me tell her what was best for me.

    This review has been resolved or replied to by this company. Do Not book with this company, they are the most incompetent bunch of know nothings I have ever been unfortunate enough to try and deal with and lord forbid you need to reach them, on hold for up to 5 hours and you will NEVER get your issues resolved. Incompetent, incompetent, incompetent. No service and if they tell you, you will be transferred to a supervisor it's a lie, you will be put on hold for more hours and when you finally get to speak to someone else they won't help you either. If you want to know my nightmare with this company, they booked me 2 days earlier to depart,... More...

I bought a $137.10 ticket from cheapoair for aircanada and lufthansa flights. air canada cancelled the flight due to strong winds on the day my flight was scheduled to take off. air canada called me and tried to offer me alternative flights but none was favorable for me cause i needed to be at my destination for a purpose and to arrive anytime later would defeat the purpose of my trip so aircanada concluded that i will recieve 100% refund and they instructed me to contact cheapoair for the refund since i purchased through cheapo. This was 12/21/2012. When I initially contacted cheapoair, they confirmed the flight cancellation and promised to issue a refund in 3-4 business days to my credit card. That never happened. I've spen over 100 hours on the phone with cheapoair. Their stories and resons for not issuing me a refund changes every day. One time a 'supervisor' told me he had processed the refund whiles I was on the phone with him and he said to expect my refund in 4 business day. That was a game. He never did. well it feb 2013 and I still haven't recieved my refund it. air canda and lufthansa both told me never to do business with cheapo again because the hear similar complaints all the time from customers. CheapOair drags on and on until you become fed up and you give up then they take your money. Ironically, the latest rep who has been sending me emails name is 'dragon@cheapoair.com' Really, all they ever write in their emails are the same old same old lines and games to prolong and drag your refund if you ever recieves it. some of my friends have been lucky with travelocity n expedia. please never cheapoair. The indian reps have no emotions. they don't care. they are reading you scripts when you call them. i'm in the process of taking legal actions against them.

Dear Winwoo, you haven't contacted me in order to resolve your complaint. Without your actual name and booking number, I'm unable to determine who you are. Please email me your 8 digit booking number and I will see that the fee is refunded. The fee is not just to select seat assignments but also has travel related assistance such as making dinner reservations, baby sitting needs, arranging car transportation, discounts for shows, so there are many benefits to the service which where listed when the offer came up. Email to
randrews@cheapoair.com

I bought an airline ticket from CheapOair.com flying from San Diego to San Francisco.
Shortly before the departure I became ill with a strain of the H1N1 virus. (Highly contagious). I called CheapOair.com to change my flight. Ceyln in Manila advised me fly anyway and infect all the passengers on a plane, because a changing the flight would cost more than a regular ticket.

Flight number 557 United Airlines.

Cheapoair charged two of my credit cards for the same flight. I did this with an agent over the phone. The first credit card was supposed to not have gone thorugh but it did. Customer service from cheapoair do not reply. Neither Delta Airlines from whom the ticket was issued. I lost 914 $ from using cheapoair. I did not succed to get a refund.

This is the worst site for booking any flights EVER. I am an active duty soldier who saved up enough money to fly my folks to where I am stationed. The price that I agreed on was the best around but then days later they changed the price didn't ask and took the money right out of my account great job CheapOair this is highway robbery hands down I will never use this site ever again and I will make sure every soldier knows never to trust this site.

It's too bad and too late. I already booked 3 tickets from CheapOair and now want to post comments to let traveler know do not by ticket from them: here is what I experienced from them:

I already booked 3 flight tickets from CheapOair website and what i have found out that they never offer the cheap airfare tickets. The thing is they control the airfare by themselves, in my case i want to book my tickets earlier to get the cheap airfare, for example one ticket of mine had base price 1802$ CAD and i had to pay for tax and fees for 400$ something and then very surprised I came back to CheapOair website one week later to check how expensive the ticket i booked now, the base price of the ticket went up to 2,200 something BUT the tax and fees just 94$CAD. It means they can adjust the base price and tax and fees of airfare to maximum their profits and the customer absolutely have no chance to get cheap airfare. Another thing, when I call 1-800 number to ask why i had to pay so much tax and fee and their representative is very rude to explain to customer and even they dropped the call as i want to talk to their manager.
Another issue, very bad to support for customer. I want to change my itinerary just for one leg, to move time of departure earlier, they charged me almost 300$ CAD, I didn't accept and call to Air Canada, they changed for me. This was what i had experienced with CheapOair website and don't recommend traveler buy tickets from this website.

I purchased two Ticket from Cheapoair on Feb 17, 2009 for $2195.64 us dollars and after 2 months I called to confirm the flight but after severl calls then I found out the flight is cancelled without noticing me.
I aske for my refund then Cheapoair passed me to Aeroflot airline for a Week and after two weeks they deduct $300 us money from my refund. How Cheapoair could do that when there is no service there
