No explanation for delay. Unusually rude for jet blue

El servicio a bordo excelente, Pablo una gran persona, pero el atraso en la salida fue demasiado

Pros: "Very friendly crew and the plane arrived in Costa Rica 30 mins early!"
Cons: "I have a JetBlue credit card and I’m very disappointed that membership to the credit card does not offer priority boarding or zone A or zone B boarding. I was in seat 6C and had boarding zone E! Every other airline sponsored credit card I own offers some form of priority zone seating; even Spirit!"
Cons: "Canceled flight"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Although there was an issue with a passengers’ dog(who ultimately had to be asked off, before we could leave). It was handled quickly and our flight departed on time."
Cons: "The entertainment didn’t work/have a signal until our descent to land."
Pros: "Everything is always great on Jetblue"
Cons: "n/a"
Cons: "Wonderful wheel chair service."
Cons: "I was not on it"
Pros: "Everything about the flight operated smooth and comfortably. Efficient boarding, surprised and delighted to have inflight entertainment for such a short flight where most other airlines use older planes without tv/movies."
Cons: "did my pre flight check in at about 3pm for my 8:50pm flight. I didnt immediately receive my boarding pass via text but figured it’d come in the next 4hrs. It didn’t and I had to go through the line for a paper pass, then at about 11pm when I was already home after my flight I received the text containing my boarding pass. Obviously a simple hiccup in an automated process but laughably pathetic in terms of delivering a simple service for paying customers that’s designed to save you, JetBlue, time and money"
Cons: "Plane was delayed 90 minutes for takeoff as it came in late."
Pros: "The pilot was on it, time for some new planes."
Cons: "The plane left the gate 35 min late, went to take off the pilot saw a water leak returned to the gate. Finally fixed than went to leave the gate the 2nd time and there was another malfunction. 2 hours later finally took off. When we landed at lax we had to travel across the runway for quite awhile to our gate where we had to wait another 45 min for the other plane to leave before we could park."
Pros: "Roomy seats, good snacks, great crew!"
Pros: "I love everything about Jet Blue"
Pros: "Timely and smooth boarding. On time take off. The staff was very friendly and courteous."
Pros: "Night masked"
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude as hell , she looked like she didn’t know what she was doing"
Pros: "Thank you for the leg room! While all the other airlines are packing people on the plane like sardines, thank you for treating your customers, especially the economy customers like human beings. I can’t emphasize enough how much that will affect my travel choice and I am not even a person of big built."
Cons: "The head rest did not have the bending capability so the head can’t rest comfortably to either side while sleeping."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "The second half of the flight the TVs didn’t work till halfway through the flight."
Pros: "On time and very friendly crew."
Pros: "Wow - perfect trip from booking to arrival in FLL. Easy website, luggage and assigned seat included. Helpful ground crew in BUF. And the best free inflight wifi. I will book again."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Captain checked in with us regularly. Cabin Crew generous and helpful. Electronics worked. Good legroom."
Pros: "The system was down at my seat. No wifi"
Pros: "The fact that the flight was short"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "The extra room. The staff was friendly."
Cons: "There could be additional snacks available especially on a flight that’s over 3 hrs. I had a short lay over in JFK and wasn’t able to buy a meal and very limited snacks on board so I left home 2:00 to be early and arrived at my destination at 2:30pm with only chips to eat"
Pros: "Quick flight, television, reasonably price"
Pros: "Pleasant. On time. Friendly. Decent value for money."
Pros: "Amazing fast easy flight with excellent staff on board!"
Pros: "Service and friendly staff"
Pros: "I missed the flight as my first flight got delayed. When I got to the gate there was no Turkishairlines representative. 12 hours after the flight still at airport without any clear answer from Turkish airways."
Cons: "Zero costumer service. Knowing that I might miss my first leg I checked the possible next flights and even though there are two flights next day, the prices tripled in 2 hour (from 1300 to 3900 USD). When I asked for rebook I was told that there is no available seat in any of those two flights. Did a quick search and found out there are seats but are left to milk desperate passengers."
Pros: "Easy on, no line organization but not a real problem. Friendly crew. Typical lovely JetBlue experience."
Pros: "Service was phenomenal"
Pros: "Easy and clear instructions on boarding."
Pros: "Free internet, great landing."

Pros: "Boarding was easy. I like the Dunkin Donuts coffee"
Cons: "My overhead light and tv we're both not working. The stewardess was rude when I brought it up. Told me to move to the next empty seat dismissively. I bought a window seat on purpose and did not want to move. My concerns were left unaddressed"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "Counter staff were excellent"
Cons: "Crew were rushed and lacked congeniality Skipped full distribution of snacks due to poor communication"
Cons: "When the flight is cancelled you need to find a solution for those passengers who travelled that day by bus or car just to catch the flight!!! At least a hostel to sleep over night or give them back the money or let them travel with another company...not to wait 12 hours on the airport!!! Thats not professional at all!"

Pros: "What a difference from the cut rare airlines! We had been taking spirit in the past, but am so glad we used jet blue this time. We never got the feeling of just being cattle herded to a destination. Using a real airline is the only way to go!"
Pros: "I really liked how organized the boarding process is and the plan certainly arrived more than 35 minutes in advance which is always a plus on my book."
Cons: "The IFE on board is super outdated. It fells like you're going back in time to the 90s which is very unacceptable these days."
Cons: "The flight attendant was rude."
Pros: "Service is terrible on my way to Peru the entertainment unit in front of me did not work I am formed SteFf but all they could say was they would help me but we never return very disappointed returning from Peru our plane got stuck in Bogotá Columbia we’re trapped inside the plane For three hours with no air-conditioning when we finally disembarked they offered us to stay in a hotel but the voucher process also took a very long time we ended up going to the hotel at 3 o’clock in the morning in order to get up at 5 o’clock in the morning for the return flight very disappointed with that flight of Avianca again or would I would not recommend Avianca to anyone"

Pros: "Voucher for lunch"
Cons: "No accommodation to change flights. No honest updates."
Cons: "- Rescheduled flights due to Avianca commercial decisions just 1 week before flight - Boarding was very messy due to their inhability to explain the "group system", they have pax that doesn't speak spanish or english, they should do it in a more easy way - Food portions wasn't enough, a lot of people had to bring their own snacks and the plane had a terrible smell due to that. People will bring bags with full roasted chickens - Entretainment was ok, but their system is just so slow - A lot of loss time because they lost my bags in one of the connections. Hopefully they brough it back 12 hours later"
Pros: "Very smooth day at the airport and in travel. Thank you Avianca"
Pros: "Great flight great service."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didn't use my flight. Bought insurance but when I tried to change my flight it cost more that just buying another flight."

Pros: "My flight had an unnecessary stop at Bogota, when the lady on the counter asked me where I was heading to and found out it was a place so close she asked me if I wouldn't mind going on a direct flight of 2 hours instead of waiting for a 19 hour flight. I love Avianca and I've never preferred another airline. Their customers attention is great."
Cons: "The only problem I had is that they were out of one of the meals when they got to my seat."
Pros: "entertaiment"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Airplane was clean, modern, and very accommodating (cup holders, usb port, large touch screen entertainment systems for which they provided headphones FREE of charge, free hot turkey and cheese mini croissant with a mini cold doughnut, fresh drinks). Staff were also super nice and accommodating, flight was smoothe. Oh...and seats leaned back quite a bit more than on other airlines i've used in the past."

Cons: "The time in the check in Line was horrible, why the people who made your check in on line wait around at airport, more that the people don't have check in? It is absurd!!"

Nothing to rave about. Just another flight

The flight staff were polite, seats were comfortable, and we reached our destinations on time. This was my first time traveling first class since the pandemic. The difference in service was dramatic and made me seriously regret having paid three times more for a first class ticket. Specifically No Sky Cap lounge - One of the main reasons I traveled first class was to use the Sky Cap lounge since we were going to have to wait for our flight for several hours at PDX. PDX Sky Cap would not allow us to enter as first class passengers. The receptionist said we needed to have their American Express Card. Further the Las Vegas Sky Cap lounge is permanently closed. Food - Our first flight was early in the morning, so I thought no need to grab breakfast in the airport, I'm traveling first class. The only food we were served or offered between LAS and PDX was Biscoff cookies. Our return trip was the same. Seems the days of being served a hot meal in first class are long gone.

Great flight

Screaming crying kids. Kid kicking seat. Late to board. Late to leave

Flight crew was friendly and professional

Our favorite flights. Straight shots, with as much comfort as one would expect.

Back to front boarding works, drop a lot of the prepared categories to Wheelchair, babies, military and 1st class, then board back to front, it works. had difficulty seeing phone to get free wifi, the items you need to check need to be in bigger font.

Pros: "Crew was great, the seats are never comfortable"
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "As always, the seats in basic economy are as small as possible without actually being standing room only. I'm 5'7" and my knees are only about an inch from the seat back in front of me."
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "crj900 from BUF-MSP is a wreck. worn out, uncomfortable seats, cold air coming from floor toes were numb for about 20m after flight. Flight delayed, missed connecting flight, lost comfort+ upgrade I paid for. No excuse for pitch in main cabin on 737-900 ER."
Pros: "Crew very helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost an hour due to inclement weather in the originating city. The Delta personnel explained the situation and did all they could considering the circumstances."
Pros: "Nothing remarkable"
Cons: "Delta was ordinary"
Pros: "Yes"
Pros: "The crew and entertainment options are great. Relatively comfortable seats by today's standards."
Cons: "Literally any of our flights could have been on time. None were."
Pros: "Great seat easy flight. The food always seem to be the same. I wish they would change it up every once in a while. I've been on this flight 14 times this year and its always exactly the same.."
Cons: "The gate was under construction in Seattle, and it was impossible to hear the gate agents."
Cons: "No AC for an hour before takeoff - very uncomfortable. Audio for tv did not work."
Cons: "Plane left without me because they don’t know how to put gas in the plane in Jackson"
Pros: "Helpful"
Pros: "Food good"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought a ticket thinking i bought it through kayak but I actually bought a ticket through a third party in India. Where no one spoke good English. I called the agency to find out if I needed a Visa for my visit to Australia and the told me no. So when I showed up to the airport I didn’t have the right documents and I MISSED MY FLIGHT. Also the wouldn’t just change my flight and charge me the change flight fee. They cancelled my flight entirely and made me buy a whole new ticket!!! Worst flight experience I’ve ever had and this is not my first time flying to Australia or out of country."
Pros: "Excellent flight with efficient service. Flight was on time and friendly staff"
Cons: "Efficiency"
Pros: "left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "no lunch on a flight that departed at 2 pm."
Pros: "The Delta service desk was great! We wanted to get an earlier flight home and the Delta Rep got us on standby quickly and with a smile."
Cons: "Some chaos getting on the flight. The area they have set up for the different sections to wait before getting called weren't marked very well so everyone was bunched up and confused. Once they started calling the sections it was fine. Not sure why they even had the marked areas."
Pros: "My upgrade and breakfast were fabulous!"
Pros: "very friendly crew"
Cons: "My flight was delayed several times and had to rebook. Total delays were > 6 hours."
Pros: "Staff very courteous and professional"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Efficient on board crew"
Cons: "Ground crew caused delay for unknown reason"
Pros: "I was still full from flying a Delta international flight from CDG to ALT, so I opted out of all food. They just offered snacks and beverages."
Cons: "It was PACKED. Could have used more space and no attempt was made to help family members sit together on this overbooked flight."
Cons: "No wifi, no leg room"
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "Good Flight"
Cons: "Sat in a seat backing onto an exit seat do didn’t recline - my fault should have checked"
Cons: "No help with baggage when boarding the plane, they hurry you up for nothing, because we had to wait 20 mi utes to take off."
Pros: "I asked for a change of seat at the gate and was given it. It really made a difference to be at the window."
Pros: "to their Diamond Medallion customers"
Pros: "Delta strives for and delivers excellence. I am almost never disappointed. Keep it up!"
Cons: "You don't always get the best seat buddies! Oh well."
Pros: "The airline did not disappoint and the customer service were very professional"
Cons: "Make sure the new signs are posted in all airports for boarding. That will help control people at the entrance"
Pros: "great service and a quick flight"
Pros: "Smooth"
Cons: "Delayed because the airline misschdduled the pilots!! We had to wait for pilots to come to the plane... while one the plane"
Pros: "The agent on my departure flight at the ATL airport was amazing, boarding was quick, the flight attendants were great! I had an overall great experience."
Cons: "Turbulence was pretty bad both flights."
Pros: "Return trip was 30 min ahead of schedule"
Cons: "We had a 2 hour delay getting to NYC"
Pros: "Got Home !"
Cons: "Waited one hour sitting on board the aircraft for it to be fueled!! That's not what you want to do when you have to get home! The aircraft should be ready! And already fueled!"
Pros: "Customer service very courteous and friendly."
Pros: "The crew was nice but seemed super stressed out."
Cons: "The plane was old, no entertainment was provided, tight space with little leg room and our plane departed late."
Pros: "There were some delays and issues with air traffic control, but they brought out snacks after a half hour which was really nice. Overall, great!"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew very friendly. Plane was clean, boarding very organized but I would suggest boarding from the back forward. This would eliminate blocked aisles."
Cons: "I loked everything in my trip"
Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "Seat 27F is not a seat. The online system messed up!"
Pros: "Flight was quick, crew efficient"
Cons: "Despite having this flight booked for over a month I was not issued a seat until gate check in and had to sit and wait till they figured out their "overbooked" situation. I had to approach the desk four times because they wouldn't give me any indication of what zone I should line up for, and the desk crew were rude. Ended up being the last to board."
Cons: "The amount of turbulence experienced was ridiculous. The landing was rough. This was the same for every flight with Copa on my round trip from SJO to MDE. This was extremely concerning."
Cons: "Copa ground staff did not let us board citing some yellow fever vaccination card requirement. What Copa did not know that there are some exceptions (which they don’t know and of which we just found out) allowed by WHO which would have let us continue our trip to Managua. Will never, ever fly Copa again. Actually I advise everyone else to stay away from Copa."
Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "Great food!"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Crew was exceptionally nice and professional on this flight."
Pros: "Crew and friendliness of ground staffers"
Cons: "Stop insulting folks with crappy cereal bars! Better to serve nothing at all!!! Ridiculous to even offer"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "I didn't like getting a notification that the flight had been delayed. Just to find out that it was on time when I arrived at the airport. I almost missed the flight."
Cons: "I want to separate the flight from from the airport service. Our (4) luggage were sent on a different flight. We arrived in Guayaquil and we were told that all our luggage was sent on the flight after ours. We left the airport 3 hours later."
Pros: "Nothing, rude and not caring for their customers. My flight from dtw to Chicago was canceled and I was never informed. I lost 1 day of my trip and a wedding. Worst airline."
Cons: "Notify flight cancellation, rebook the flight with another airline, and offer a compensation since we missed a wedding and that was the whole reason why we were going to Ecuador. Worst costumer service ever."
Cons: "Need more attention to details like order to boarding and entertainment"
Pros: "The crew treated me with disrespect, I ordered flight ticket with 2 bags deposit and 1 bag with me to the plane. one of my bags is a surfing board and it wasn’t written any where that it’s not like a regular bag. They charged me 150$ more for one way and they will charge me 150$ more on the way back"
Cons: "I paid on bringing my surf board like a flight ticket for a person with 2 bags! It’s unbelievable and unfair to put me in this situation! I hope that you will do something about that so I won’t need to pay again on150$ for my surfboard."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room Seats have power to plug in phone and computers to charge New Plane (Boeing 737-800) Food was good. All staff at the gate and on plane was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely use Copa to travel again. On time departure and landing"
Cons: "Could use a little more entertainment selections. Staff at security check before you get to the gate were not really helpful and did not seem interested in helping out at all."
Pros: "Departure on time and efficient boarding."
Cons: "Extremely long lines in the morning to check-in. It took 1.5 hours from arrival at airport and being able to clear immigration."
Pros: "Check in was fast and efficient. Flight was uneventful, no issues."
Cons: "Copa check in is now at Terminal 3, but boarding is from Tom Bradley Inter'l Terminal. We did not see a regular "high placed" sign for Copa which caused us to make two circuits until we saw the street side sigm which is in a nondescript area and easy to miss. My entertainment touch screen was not responsive and sticky. It froze twice. However after bringing it to the attention of the crew, they did make the effort of resetting it. In this regard I highly commend the very tall FA who was a credit to his profession. It still had problems but did work somewhat. I will add that in all my prior experiences in which this problem occurs the FA's are too busy, or forget to reset the entertainment system, so I happy that he did. The interior did not seemed to be very clean there were food stains on the pull out tray and no in flight magazine in my seat pocket. the cabin crew was nice, youngish but did not have enough personality to tell off passengers doing things that they shouldn't out of common courtesy like the passenger seated next to me playing Chinese language videos out loud on his i phone. The same group spent a lot of time burping and then spending an inordinate length of time picking their teeth with wooden toothpicks which did not make for a pleasant scene. I almost lost my appetite seeing which what vigor they went at it, what were they expecting to find? They would then spit the residue in the air making me a bit nauseous. The food was dire especially the two melted cheese/beef/chicken sandwiches served near the last third of the trip. The main lunch ravioli meal served earlier was not bad. The bottom line is that the flight was uneventful with nothing to note, but there is definite room for improvement."
Pros: "On time departure, great food and service was friendly."
Cons: "My own phone didn’t work for the entertainment system."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "1st flight was delayed so I missed my connection. 2nd flight was delayed due to mechanical issues so I missed my second connection. I traveled for over 24hours and now that it’s 3 days later , my checked luggage has still not arrived or been found."
Pros: "Nice wide seat."
Cons: "Seats didn’t recline much at all. Food only so so."
Cons: "Getting to San Francisco flight was canceled, make a line for 3.30 hours to let us know what they were going to do with us, they give the place to go at 3 a.m with not directions were to take a bus , later someone come and told us the bus stop running at that time and I have to go upstairs to take a taxi, I was alone and not use to be alone at that time never in my live I had to pretend I was afraid. Of course the hotel only take you until 12pm so I spend so many hours in the airport waiting for re ticketing they told us to be at 6pm we wait and I got my ticket leaving at 9.45pm but the crew come one hour and half late. From Panama to Lima flight was late . I had a conference very important to be Saturday morning, I lost my investment and relationships with the company I was going to start a business there excuse was they couldn’t relay on my punctuality, honestly. I got there more than a day and half LATE. If you ask me how was my trip I will tell you horrible and I can’t recommend anybody, this company doesn’t have any personality at all. In the airports On the board for departing or arriving change every time the gates if you are not standing up there you never get in to the next departure. Over all NOT RECOMMEND"

Cons: "Nada.... everything went perfectly well!"
Pros: "Easy layover in Panama, Flight from Panama to Cartagena was short and sweet, Friendly staff."
Pros: "Discrimination and unequal treatment. Latinos were allowed exemptions from yellow fever entry requirements from same place on same plane similarly situated while white gringo was refused entry service Real world truth"
Cons: "Placed on standby although flight purchased 2 months earlier. Told was the first of 13 on list. Was passed over for other locals who yelled at agents for a seat. Being polite and being white is NO privilege. Was told there were no other flights. LIE, supervisor booked it . Not advised of yellow fever requirement and not allowed entry into destination Sent away on next plane"
Pros: "Smooth trip no delays of any kind. The airlines used a newer plane and each seat had its only tv for watching your own movie or play some games, that will always be a big plus for me. Also they provided snacks and drinks"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The price was really good, was the best way to returned yo Nicaragua."
Pros: "Nice people , schedule ,"
Cons: "Keep"
Pros: "I was impressed that even though it was such a short flight the crew worked hard to provide everyone food and drinks."

Pros: "Excellente customer service"

Pros: "Crew, girls, was amazing. Loved them all!"

A lady who wouldn’t shut up next to me. And the baggage crew ( probably not American ) out my bag on with everyone else’s and it was to go to the security

The tv screens on the plane were not all working - very long flight to have nothing to watch in front of you. This should have been checked/resolved before the flight as I might have been reluctant to board having known there was no inflight entertainment!

Only sad part is one bathroom worked in entire aircraft! And one Barbie sized bag pretzels 🥨 doesn’t cut it

The fact that it was over an hr delayed. Then an hr to get my bag in Dfw

Extremely late

Pros: "Non stop flight. Excellent departure time."
Cons: "Understanding the COVID situation but they can give more than a bottle of water (3oz) and a bag of pretzels 🥨 (50 grams) and yet they charge full fare prices and worse extra for any bags!!!!"
Pros: "Entertainment on seats"
Cons: "I sat in seat 12A- the window was so hot it was burning my arm and I was extremely hot. Not sure if it’s from the engine heat or sun but it’s probably a mechanical issue that the 737 should address. Horribly uncomfortable trip."

Cons: "Kind of dated, wifi didn’t work."
Pros: "None of the experience was pleasant"
Cons: "First flight was delayed causing us to miss the 2nd flight and we ended sleeping on a chair at the airport waiting for a morning flight. AMERICAN AIRLINES didn't even have the decency to put us in a hotel for the night due to their delay. Then they added a 2nd lay over which was delayed for hours also. Traveling was to visit my mother who had cancer and I was sick so this made the trip even more distasteful."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"
