Mediocre 3.6

Pros: Booked via JustFly.com and I guess I did not read the fine-print. What seemed like a great deal – $475 USD for an off-peak round trip, LAX-LON-LAX, booked two months in advance – was not much cheaper, once I paid seat assignments and, new one on me, +$100 to check one non-cabin-sized bag each way.

Cons: Please, don't bait and switch British Airways for American Airlines. I chose to fly BA for a reason, but outbound was AA. I know it's a tough job, tending to 300+ passengers on any trans-Atlantic flight, but AA comfort and courtesy were lacking. It was a different story flying home on my BA 747.

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.

Okay 5.6

Pros: The crew was fine. The seat was not very comfortable. I was quite sore after the 6 hour flight. Entertainment was pretty good and I am happy it was free. I'd appreciate a better selection of current movies, though.

Cons: My SEA to BOS flight was 6 hours late; BOS to SEA departed 30 min late. It was my first time on JetBlue and both my flights were late. Not a great first impression. Also, I hate that JetBlue charges $30 each way for checked baggage. This causes overhead bins to be too full of carry-ons.

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.

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

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 rentals 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.
