On average, a taxi trip from the airport to Hyderabad shouldn’t take more than 20 minutes. However, during the day when traffic is busier, travel times may be longer. The travel distance is 18 kilometres between the airport and the city centre. Taxi fare is ₹ 21 per kilometre (C$ 0.39).
Rickshaws are widely used by locals to travel short distances because they are cheaper and move more easily through traffic than a car or a taxi. They are, however, not as comfortable.

Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I like how the crow did help me with my dizziness and provided me with an extra oxygen to breath better."
Cons: "I don’t know, but I always find it difficult with food smells, then make me sick and did today in the flight"
Pros: "Amazing crew, seats were super confortable. Overall top experience !"
Cons: "Need improvements"
Pros: "Good service by crew."
Cons: "Online check in was not working which meant long line to check in at airport."
Pros: "Crew was great, seating was cramped."
Cons: "I bought my seat assignment in advance, and they did not give me this seat on the plane. Before boarding, I asked at the gate if my new seat was a window--which is what I paid for--and they confirmed yes, my new seat was a window. Turns out, it was not, it was a middle seat. I asked a flight attendant to relocate me to a window seat, which she kindly did, however this seat was quite uncomfortable as I was seated next to a large gentleman who probably should have been required to purchase two seats. Overall, there were two issues with Qatar Airways during this trip: they did not give me the seat I had requested and paid for, and then lied when I asked if my new seat was a window."
Pros: "Yes. the crew was amazing, respectful and seats had adequate leg room. Entertain equipment was working."
Cons: "Same advertisements before each movie could play were annoying to me."
Pros: "Excellent crew, quick serving a lunch on a 1.5 hour flight."

Pros: "Smoth flight"
Cons: "TOOO long."
Pros: "Had always liked the airline and on board crew members"
Cons: "Ground crew members in Doha airport need attitude check. been spotting these too often. On Board crew members are much better."
Cons: "Although the loading Zone was given as Zone 1, boarding was chaotic because the fround crew was incredibly inefficient. The announcement was totally mumbled and badly managed, Why cant the boarding at Cochin be organised like queues for each zone so that the passengers do not crowd in a mad rush near the gate as if the fliht will leave without them. As in Doha have different seating area for different zones and the ground crew should be trained to be firm to allow only passengers with boarding."
Pros: "service, food and cleanness"
Pros: "Foods, crew are accomodating and all sevice facility are very good"
Cons: "Just update the movies regularly"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very helpful and cheerful and everyone had a smile on their face."
Cons: "Entertainment devices are slow to respond."
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "Food was better. Seating was comfortable."
Pros: "Great service, on-time flights, very comfortable planes in excellent condition. Great value for flight cost, BOS-KTM, through DOH. I would fly again with them."

Cons: "The process of checking in is difficult because qatar codes are different from asiana, therefore I couldn't do an online check in."
Pros: "Courteous, helpful and professional crew members."
Cons: "No internet service on long international flight. Boarding process for business class could be better."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "One of bags was missing and I came to know this only after waiting until the last bag. The staff knew that my bag did not make it out of Doha. It would have been nice if I was informed as soon as I landed so I did not have to wait for an hour unnecessarily. And the paperwork to report the missing baggage was totally Chaotic. Whoever barged to the counter and was aggressive got priority and taking down the details and giving us a receipt. This is probably my 5 or 6 flight in Qatar and it seems that you guys are slipping up as Emirates had done. Hope you don't."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! They saved this rating."
Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get. Doha security and transfer were unruly, long, and a mess. Terrible experience there. Nearly missed connection. Dreading going through there on return flight"
Pros: "Staff was excellent"
Cons: "More selection or choices like international food not like focus on Indian food"
Pros: "I was the third person in the line. The ticket agent couldn't find my ticket as multiple tickets were booked on my name and all tickets showed X mark. After 20-30 minutes of wait, I finally got my ticket but the security and custom lines were very long by that time. Never flying Qatar again."
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Good flight"
Pros: "I liked the food and the entertainment ."
Cons: "My seat was broken so I sat up right for 16 hours. To top it off I needed to use the toilet REALLY bad but was denied even though we were SITTING on the runway for 20 mins. When I FINALLY get to use the toilet, after a smaller Asian girl and a taller Indian girl were getting bags of blankets out of, I leave a WOODEN CLIPBOARD full of VERY important papers that will cost me inside. Yet when I call to retrieve them they are "nowhere to be found" so you're telling me out of those 2 women, the Indian gentleman, the black woman & the other Asian woman back there didn't notice a clipboard when I was the only person back there trying to use the toilet or they simply threw a wooden and metal clipboard away ?? With what was clearly paperwork clipped onto it ? The girl at the service desk of Qatar airways claims to have looked herself. But she was rushing me off of the phone so I don't feel like she remotely cared even a little. I am PAST unhappy. So thank you for throwing my paperwork away I know for sure was left behind. Very thorough team."
Pros: "13+ hour flight is never an "excellent" experienced but QA does its best. Great cabin service. Decent legroom. Food is good but not *quite* up to the standards of some competitors. Doha airport is great. Modern, convenient and clean."
Cons: "I have booked the flight for my mom and I requested a wheel chair her, she Has a broken arm . And I booked the flight with this company cos I thought they have a great service, but not what I expected, they didn't provide a wheel chair and she has to drag all the bag with one working arm , so I m not pretty satisfied with the trip at all and I won't fly with th company any more"
Pros: "the best air line I've ever been"
Pros: "Almost nothing"
Pros: "Every thing likely"

Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Good leg space and entertainment options"
Cons: "I was eligible for a complimentary hotel for my connection. However, in none of my correspondence was mentioned that I'm supposed to request a hotel ahead of departure. No emails from Kayak and neither Emirates. This is extremely disappointing and unnecessarily costly"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "The seats were pretty stiff compared to the A380 business class seats on my preceding flight."
Cons: "Very nice"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "There is for a 4 hours flight just a small snack - just like a local flight. Then there is no bedding at all, just a blanket. Very poor for a F-class ticket."
Cons: "Evrything was fantastic"

Cons: "Emirates charging for duty free merchandise bought in Dubai. It is ridiculous that they add the weight of the duty free merchandise to your carry on luggage and charge at the gate. If I have known that I could have shopped in Dubai duty free. The customer service person was very rude too."
Pros: "I like everything, every boby"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "they have changed how they serve drinks and food. they used to do that separately. now they club it together."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "I travelled internationally after 4 years. When I boarded my flight in New York, nobody cared to weigh my carry obs. However at my transit, while I was about to board the next flight, they weighed it and asked me to pay 100$ extra. If the airlines didn't allow more than 7 kilos carry on, they should have weighed it at the beginning of my trip since I had lots of room left in my check in and would have adjusted the luggage."
Cons: "This was a fraudulent charge!!"
Cons: "seats wouldn't recline, they say it is a mechanical, I had to sit uncomfortably for 16 hrs"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment and the cabin crew is very welcomjng and nice smaile on their faces."

Pros: "All are good."
Cons: "Served vegetarian, I am very happy."
Pros: "Food and entertainment. Didn't crash."
Cons: "There is no leg room, and the seats are so small that everyone ends up leaning on each other. Better pray that you neighbor doesn't show up. Ever tried to eat while in such close proximity to another human? Totally not recommended, yet it's a requirement on these flights. I was not able to eat at the same time as my neighbors. I let them eat first, then ate my food."

Cons: "seat space was tight. it was hard to get comfortable"
Pros: "The flight departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "The plane was not the same plane I booked travel on. They changed it, so if it’s the 777 then it is basically widebody short haul seating in business, with a lay flat price! The seats are old and don’t work well. This has been an issue on all the flights I’ve taken between Tokyo and HKG."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Food Crew"
Cons: "Seating at the gate is strange. They just have people line up in any order and board them in that order. People run to form the line. Totally ridiculous. Food was awful. I have no idea what to even call the items they served. Audio jack was literally being held together with tape! Loose connection."
Pros: "Lie-flat seat in usiness class in the most comfortable seat I have ever sat in—on or off a plane. Cathay service is remarkably good and caring, but not intrusive."

Pros: "I liked the fact that food was offered rather than the typical NA experience where you provide your own."
Cons: "Staff seems distant and uninterested at times."
Pros: "Everyone that was part of the Cathay Pacific team was so friendly and helpful. They were very accommodating and quick to assist me outside the typical meal and drink service times. I flew economy and the seats were fairly comfortable. There were plenty of new films to choose from for entertainment as well."
Pros: "The crew was polite, caring and friendly towards passengers. I had a pleasant time during the long flight. The food options were good."
Cons: "Cup noodles were not really a good snack idea given the fact that we were sitting in a closed environment. The smell was too much for such a long flight..."

Pros: "Very good service. Professional and friendly"

Pros: "Everything thing worked out well except for the food for my wife. Sitting all the way in the back wasn't that bad because no one was behind us and we could fully recline."
Cons: "Kayak or Cathay provided no options to select meal preference while checking in online more than 24hrs before departure."

Cons: "Seat didn't recline"
Pros: "Great food, free, and also free snacks, lovely staff, extra pillows and blankets provided. Roomy, loved it, plan to use then again !"
Pros: "Service with hospitality impressed me.Prefer to travel in cathay pacific air lines in future travel plans."
Cons: "Inform me hours before boarding a flight delay and layover time to connect to second flight extended from 2 to 18 hours. Called customer service for further info and arrangement. Long wait on calls and no definite answer if hotel will be provided. Customer service ny and hk no coordination and bounced me from one party to another. Poor attitude of Cathay at NY JFK Airport counter who showed indifference and claimed too busy to take attention."
Pros: "We enjoyed the flight, the food, the entertainment system. Everything was good including the cleanliness of toilet facilities on this 16 hour flight. Very happy with Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "I do the Canada-Australia trip fairly often to see my family, and Cathay-Pacific is my new fave. Cheaper than the usual, no problematic stops in the US and everything went perfectly smoothly. Thanks for looking after me!"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable! Cabin crew are not friendly, service sucks! Very dirty cabin. Very noisy because of crying children everywhere!"
Pros: "Comfortable seat , surprisingly good food"
Cons: "Where to begin....The flight was delayed an hr leaving Hong Kong. Then we were rerouted without notice to Newark International. Upon landing and changing our plans, we were told we were actually proceeding to our original destination in JFK. However, we have to wait for a new crew and we're stuck on the tarmac, on the plane for additional couple hrs. The experience was very aggravating, especially after such a long flight. Additionally, I find Cathays lack of transperancy with their customers very unprofessional. Sad as this is my preferred airline to flight but will take this into account for future bookings."
Pros: "The efficiency of this crew was unparalleled"
Cons: "This was the least friendly crew I have ever encountered! Save one young gentleman, the crew was in such a rush to be efficient that the customer service suffered. The head stewardess was harsh, stressed and completely rude with both her staff and her crew. She snapped at several people during the flight and everyone was put on egg shells - not so comfortable for a 16hr flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed out of Toronto for two hours and we sat on the Tarmac with no explation. Insufficient food for a 15 hour flight with no snacks offered except for two minute noodles in a cup which they ran out of. Catered mostly for Chinese passengers. Entertainment was very poor too, only a small number of English movies with the majority of entertainment in Chinese. Crew were rude and dismissive. Overall a great disappointment."
Cons: "The food was salty."
Pros: "The entertainment was very good. Overall, the service was satisfactory and I will fly Cathay Pacific in the future."
Cons: "The lavatories were not kept clean. Especially during long haul flights; more attention has to be paid to this area in particular."
Pros: "The crew seemed genuinely nice and helpful"
Cons: "I felt the food was stale and not good at all."
Pros: "crew was good. Seat was good but it was a business class seat in a 787-9; so it should be good."
Cons: "wines were mediocre which was balanced out by the good quality of the food. Brussels to Abu Dabhi boarding was a little chaotic with coach and front cabin passesgers packed in a single bus. Noticed many older passengers standing for the longish bus ride."
Pros: "Crew were very pleasant"
Pros: "Nothing, they loose my luggage, so I want my luggage back in 1 day or refund my money"
Cons: "They loose my luggage."
Cons: "Sehar for Ramadhan may be improved as we have no other option and neither time to do it outside plane"
Cons: "The main meal was ok but that was it. If you can't do food to a standard them dint do it at all. A piece of fruit would have been better"
Cons: "Check in counter was overcrowded and slow moving"
Cons: "We lost an item and while we are in airport waiting for next flight even though we know it would have got recovered by airport staff there is no way of getting it back unless we download a form online , print , fill the form and sign , scan and send it in email to lost and found team. This is unlikely and complex process for anyone while in airport to get access to print, scan etc. we wish this was more simpler process Cabin was too cold and staff deny bluntly to make any adjustment saying some other set of passengers complained that cabin is warm.. I have not seen anyone who could sit around with out blanket on them and we had to get double blankets and wrap ourselves in there"
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Lack of ability to cancel"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Due to the delay of the first flight, I had to run until my heart aches to catch my second flight in time. Not many people spoke English"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was fantastic and nice. Flight was as comfortable as they could make it for the limited space. Food was great for airplane food. Entertainment was decent. Didn't try the wifi because I didn't need to."
Cons: "Would've been more inclined to use wifi if by time and not bytes."
Pros: "Charging for devices at the seat, not too cramped."
Cons: "Out of DC, they weighed every carryon item both at check in and at the gate. I couldn’t fill my water bottle before boarding or I would have been overweight... I’ve never had an airline be so picky. And then they lost one of my bags - ironic given the precision about baggage weight."
Pros: "Comfo seat"
Cons: "Too ismail for the seat"
Pros: "Nothing much really!"
Cons: "No entertainment options. Late departure & when we arrived early the local ground services company did not expect us & we were delayed at the gate for 30 minutes before disembarking!"
Cons: "I checked in at Hyderabad and the check in staff were more than unprofessional. First they said my carry on bag and laptop bag should be no more than 7 kgs which was wrong. Later when I asked them to show the baggage restrictions, they went back saying it's okay. I had only 1 check in bag and it weight 1 kg more. I thought they would allow it since I had only 1 check in bag but they made me take out that extra kg and check in my carry on as second bag. Finally I asked for an aisle seat and they said the flight was full. But when I boarded the IAD flight I was rather surprised to see quite a few aisle and window seats. So rather than being a great experience, I would say it was a mediocre one because of the Hyderabad staff."
Pros: "Though I missed the Outbound flight, was given a seat on the next available flight and offered a free meal in the airport. Seating was very comfortable."
Cons: "In-flight WIFI was very slow and felt a bit expensive. Boarding was a bit unorganized, but OK. Food was average and with no variety."

Cons: "Food was terrible on the flight. Baggage was not handled properly."
Pros: "The Airbus A321 flight was much more comfortable than the 1st leg. The service again was good"
Cons: "There wasn't anything not to like."
Cons: "The Crew do not give you the meal what you booked during reservation, what is the point in booking the meal prior if it is not served."
Cons: "The restrooms were not clean and stinky."
Pros: "Few good stores to shop at the airport, could have been better"
Cons: "No accomodation was provided. I had over 15 hours of layover and no one had the courtesy to provide neither the airlines nor the online booking agent(site- Kayak)information on pre hotel booking. I have travelled through many other airlines who provide accomodation for long layovers without prebooking on arrival. It was a very unpleasant experience with the airlines. Upon asking at the service desk for accomodation the simply denied and informed about prebooking which I had no clue about. Thank you anyways. Hope someone else doesn’t suffer like this"
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Business class seat uncomfortable when made into bed. Crew appeared tired and overworked as time went by became inattentive Chaotic boarding and no information given about difficulties they were having. Lacking in food variety and minimal entertainment variety."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Even though we were redirected to a new gate/plane and had half hour delay, our plane arrived on time."
Cons: "Was stuck next to an overweight lady who was sitting partially in my seat and crowding me. My gate was changed and we were redirected to a ghetto looking area for the gate. My luggage was not delivered along with my flight and I had to file complaint to get it delivered. It caused lots of hardship as I had no way of contacting my family to let them know I had arrived and was safe. They were all worried when I didn't come out of the airport at Hyderabad in a timely manner since I traveled alone due to an emergency."
Pros: "Free movies Cleanliness Friendly staff"
Cons: "Provide free internet Use no plastic"
Cons: "Leg room not good"

Cons: "Customer care"
Pros: "Mostly punctual. Efficient staff service. Appropriate amount of food and drink served."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "That we arrived safely"

Pros: "I like the Menue idea. I like the service. The food was served frequently."

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "My bags were delayed 4 days, when received the suitcase was damaged and over $400 worth of items had been stolen. I was forced to check in my carry-on for a $300 extra bag fee because I had clothes in my computer bag. Big rip-off. I transferred from another airline and my bags were fine. Crooks!!! There is no leg room in economy, my American Airlines domestic flight had more leg room, this is ridiculous."

Cons: "The breakfast scone was disgusting but dinner was great!"
Pros: "Great service."

Pros: "The crew was ok. They seemed really hectic between Heathrow to Rome."
Cons: "The seats were too tiny for business class. Nowhere to put anything. So close to next passenger. I would not fly business class again on BA Terrible entertainment. No interesting movies. I guess they tried to have movies only with British actors/actresses. Nothing current. That’s pretty bad for almost. 10 hours flt. He seats in business class between Heathrow to Rome were like regular seats except with the middle seat blocked off. Food was just ok."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Plane changed to an A380"
Cons: "Waited over half an hour to get off at Heathrow owing to staff shortage so the air bridge took a while to happen!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by three hours; not sure how to fix that but it was annoying. For some reason the arm rests in the middle of the seats would not go fully back and I felt like the flight attendants were talking down to me. They also could have been having a bad day too with the flight. :/"
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "Dear Sir or Madam: My two colleagues and I bought our tickets from BWI to Geneva, via London Heathrow, through Kayak as I have many times in the past. However, the Kiwi.com travel agency did not flag that the ticket from BWI to London Heathrow allowed for one piece of checked luggage, but the ticket from London Heathrow onwards to Geneva did not allow for any checked luggage. Also astonishingly, we had to pass through Customs, reclaim our checked suitcases from the baggage carousel, and check in again through Customs to board the onward flight, both coming and going through London Heathrow. In addition to the extraordinary inconvenience that we could neither transit at London Heathrow to our connecting flight without going through Customs twice and that we could not check our luggage through to our final destination, we also had to foot a higher baggage charge to allow for checking in our suitcases, now that we had arrived in London Heathrow only to discover this that our onward ticket did not cover one piece of checked luggage. Had we known that the seemingly better price posted by Kiwi.com on Kayak’s comparative offerings came at such a high price of inconvenience and additional expense for the luggage, we would have taken our business elsewhere. It was deceptive of Kiwi.com to engage in such practices, even if it disclosed these conditions in fine print (for no one would expect, nor have I ever seen previously in the hundreds of flights I have taken as a Million Miler on United), without flagging this. And similarly, it was irresponsible of Kayak.com to allow this “apples with oranges” comparison on its website. I’m making three more international trips in December, but I’m inclined not to use either Kayak.com and most certainly not Kiwi.com for future airline ticket purchases."
Pros: "Crew very helpful"
Cons: "New booking system where you cannot select seats without paying more money is outrageous. Will fly Virgin next time. Seats did not recline Flight left three hours late. Nearly missed connection. Very stressful experience"
Pros: "Nothing to say"
Cons: "Everything. Will never book AA/BA again. Ended up with 42 hours journey."
Pros: "Boarding pass to from LHR to Hyderabad was not iisued at SAT airport. The guy with wheelchair at London didn't help in getting me boarding pass in time. My flight scheduled left. I had to wait for the next flight enroute to Delhi rather than hyderabad directly. I had to wait for more than 10 Hrs at LHR and Delhi. There was heavy delay to reach my destination."
Cons: "Non-issue of boarding pass from LHR to Hyderabad at SAT airport USA. Callous attitude of the guy who didn't help me in getting me the boarding pass at LHR. Enrouting me through Delhi to Hyderabad instead of a direct flight I had to wait for more than 10 Hrs at LHR and Delhi. There was heavy delay to reach my destination."
Pros: "Direct flight London to Denver. Check in and boarding very easy, friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Seats very close together, entertainment poor (and not working for first hour of flight)"
Pros: "Nothing g"
Cons: "Business class was same as economy and I paid a lot more. Ordered special meal but didn't get either"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and friendly."
Cons: "The seat configuration in business class is the worst of all carriers I have ever flown. Very uncomfortable in so many ways."
Cons: "I would never book a ticket through BA ever! Paid business class and my luggage got forgotten in Heathrow through transit. No one knows anything about it. I have arrived to san Francisco with no language at all!!!!"
Pros: "The crew on this flight was very nice and accommodating but was over shadowed by the experience of prior connecting flight and rediculous need to RUN thru London airport requirements to reach this flight."
Cons: "Lost luggage and rediculous connecting flights."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Music, maps, news"
Cons: "They didn't give a direct flight but gave to Mumbai and then from Mumbai to Hyderabad. Had to collect my luggage and recheckin those."
Pros: "Food and braveries has good"
Cons: "Cold coffee"
Pros: "The movie and television options were fairly good."
Cons: "I usually enjoy the BA flight from London to Austin, but this flight was extremely uncomfortable. The seats were cramped, and when the woman in front of me leaned her seat back, I didn't have enough space on my tray table to even keep a laptop fully open. The food (chicken casserole) was also terrible, and the airline ran out of other lunch options by the time they got to the back row where I was seated."
Pros: "British Airways service is unflaggingly polite and professional."
Cons: "I was charged two bob (2 pounds) for a cup of very poor coffee. No airline in my life ever made me pay for a cup of coffee."
Cons: "Couldn't check-in online. Website said to go to airport and talk to staff - should have said: "invalid passport, get new one!" That would have been so much more helpful. Substandard food, especially 'breakfast'"
Pros: "The flight we ended up taking was just fine. The crew was very nice, most of the food was good, and the seats were comfortable even in stowage."
Cons: "Our flight was about 10 hours so we got 2 meals, 1 hot 1 cold. The hot meal had a vegetarian option and that was acceptable. The cold meal was a chicken salad sandwich with no other choices. As a vegetarian we tried to take off the chicken salad part and just eat the rest but that didn't leave much. Vegetarian options for all meals would have been nice."
Pros: "The food on the flight was good."
Cons: "The wheelchair assistance was very bad as no one turned up with a wheelchair. The airways really need to improve their service and make sure that whey they offering wheelchair assistance they in fact do it. This has happened serveral times that no one turned up at the London airport."
Pros: "Flight was good . In long flight the food quantity should be increased but quality was good."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional"

Cons: "lack of seat space and could not put seat back because of medical emergency so hard to sleep. Exhausted on arrival at Heathrow! Headset did not work properly on films Did not like the boarding process !!"
Cons: "The BA flights I flew on were not new. Lie flat seat is not Best in the class. The movie collection is not uptodate. British airways in flight service levels are relatively inferior quality. The cabin and toilets were not spick-and-span. Toilets were not kept clean from time to time. The toileterries provided are not high in desirability quotient and can be improved in at least one leg of the international flights."
Cons: "The BA crew at the check in needs improvement. BA has different standards from other carriers that make it confusing. Bag sizes for on board carry on luggage accepted by other carriers are not accepted by BA. So you can fly in with one carrier and then BA says that the bag cannot go on the flight. In a different flight our flight was cancelled and rescheduled to the next day. I have been trying to find out how to get compensated for this as it says on their website and have not been able to do that yet."
