Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Delayed almost 40 minutes"
Pros: "Someone greeted me ..."
Cons: "For the check-in crew to be more enthusiastic, helpful, engaging and going above and beyond for their clients…"
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: "Wonderful wheel chair service."
Pros: "The crew was good and the seat was ok"
Cons: "More Movies"
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: "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: "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."
Pros: "Captain checked in with us regularly. Cabin Crew generous and helpful. Electronics worked. Good legroom."
Pros: "We made it to our destination in one piece so that's good I guess"
Cons: "Delayed over 3hrs. Didn't get to sit with my wife. They switched movies 30min into the movie that I was enjoying. Attendants seemed annoyed at life in general."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed for a few hours due to mechanical problems. While waiting, they gave us crackers, cheeses, salami, and granola bar plus a drink. Because I missed my connecting flight, Jet Blue put me up at the Embassy Suite when I arrived in Boston. It was a lovely room and the hotel provided snacks in the evening and a wonderful breakfast in the morning. Everyone I dealt with had a very pleasant attitude despite some less than friendly customers."
Pros: "That we got there safe"
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of an coffee maker"
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: "Crew was nice, overall flight was fine."
Cons: "Unfortunately, we were seated next to a very very large person with bad personal hygiene who spilled over into the middle seat. We had the window seat and middle seat -- well, half of the middle seat -- so, the entire flight we were both leaning uncomfortably to one side. A perfectly nice person, who really ought to purchase an extra seat (I'm not clear on JetBlue's policy regarding people who don't fit in a single seat). We had a hot and smelly journey to say the least."
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: "Great trip, but the mini tv wasn't working which was a bummer."
Pros: "Flight was good, fast , even though plane was late. I always enjoy flying Jet Blue"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks were served. Maybe have more selection so everyone can enjoy."
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: "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: "friendly crew"
Cons: "long delay"
Cons: "3 hour delay"
Pros: "Friendly staff"

Cons: "TV didn't work"

Pros: "Good, friendly, competent service all around."
Pros: "Seat was ok"
Cons: "Flight delayed, airport waiting room congested, I had to pay 200 extra to find seats together, flight location on monitor not working"
Cons: "The flight was amazing. I love JetBlue left on time and arrived in time."
Cons: "The food services should be complimentary like in qantas Korean air and any decent airline , Please don't go so low to not even provide complimentary food and liquor."
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."
Pros: "Crew and pilot were great."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely PACKED during the peak of a global pandemic. Completely irresponsible to not have people spaced out by at least one seat."
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: "Fix internet"
Pros: "The AA staff was incredibly nice to us. The facilities our check in at DCA that got us on faster and the staff at CLT very nicely got us on to an earlier flight. They were awesome!"
Cons: "The entertainment options are great but the interface is annoying and difficult to use. -connecting to the WiFi was wonky -working between the apps and browser page was annoying -rewind/fast forward controls overly sensitive"
Cons: "This leg of my trip went off without a hitch boarding and crew were very professional."
Cons: "My flight time was changed because the crew was not on time. Then it was changed back after everyone had already made accommodations for their connections, me included."
Pros: "Not happy having to spend the extra money to fly 1st class because the flight from Phoenix was so terrible."
Pros: "Yes the flight was slightly empty so I had a ton of room!!!!"
Pros: "Pilots and staff on plane briliant"
Cons: "Counter staff at boarding gate. Not friendly, not helpful. Very disappointing"

Cons: "No screens in seats or outlets for phones. Old planes. Never again."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Flight was 55 minutes late leaving making me miss my connection home. Awesome."
Pros: "On time! That pretty much says it all. I think American did a great job at everything they had control of."
Cons: "Having connecting flights that seem like they are miles apart. I’m sure there is a good reason for this but it is annoying to have to change concourses at these huge airports."
Pros: "Flight Crew were professional and accommodating throughout the trip."
Cons: "AA should inform customers via its App when they are the carrier for another airline. That way, one would know which terminal at LHR to go to. Check in was not good as there was no staff to assist or even an information kiosk in the immediate area. Had to go looking for one with all my luggage; they were having a group 'chat'. Then, instead of being helpful when asked to change seats, commenced to quiz me about why and what I did during my trip."
Pros: "Plane was surprisingly spacious in coach and very clean."
Cons: "They seemed to have entire plane boarding in group 6. Hardly anyone boarded in groups 1-5, and when they called 6 the entire gate area lined up."
Pros: "The gate was close to security, quick embarkation, departure on time, kind and professional service, decent size aircraft and overhead bins."
Cons: "Kind of dated, wifi didn’t work."
Pros: "Boarding was more efficient than I expected. And the leg room was very good, but the seats were narrow. Narrow seats made it a bit uncomfortable for a long 13 hour flight. Crew was efficient and very friendly."
Cons: "The sandwiches were too cold - actually had ice cycles. Narrow seatingwas constricting and entertainment wasn't varied enough."
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: "No breakfast"
Cons: "They separated my bags, so I had to wait in Philadelphia for my bag to arrive on next flight 2 1/2 hours latter. Not happy after flying from Sydney."
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival; room to stow carry-on's; able to move to vacant row to give both the other guy in my row and me some extra leg room."
Cons: "If the exit row seats are completely vacant, ask the flight attendant EARLY in the boarding process if you can move into them. I asked a good 10 min. prior to departure from the gate and was told I couldn't do it then. The FA let me move after takeoff and the obligatory "You're in exit row seating ..." briefing."
Pros: "Movies. Safety of flight"
Cons: "Food Too crowed seats no room to breath"
Pros: "Everything was great about my flight from Buffalo. Friendly people, easy boarding and flight was smooth as I expected."
Pros: "45 minutes early...brand new (refurbished) a320"

Pros: "I slept the whole way and we even landed a bit early. It was a great flight."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "35 minutes off schedule"
Cons: "No entertainment no preboard with kids :( late flight."
Pros: "Eveything ran smoothly"
Pros: "Great first class staff."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Passengers are packed in like sardines. All carry on bags must be checked at the gate as the overhead bins are too small to accommodate anything except a small personal bag or jacket."
Cons: "5 hr delay"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding went smoothly."
Pros: "The flight was early morning so the plane was basically empty. And the flight was short due to short distance and tail winds. Crew is always friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Plane seats are EXTREMELY cramped. We were early but had to sit for 15 minutes waiting for the plane in our spot to leave."
Cons: "You wouldn't let me change my flight so I didn't even take it"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. this is the third flight that has been cancelled to this destination. I waited for 7 hours in the airport and caught a flight on stand by. Because this has happended to me before I knew how to get a stand by ticket right away even though I was scheduled on a flight for later that day. Much later."
Cons: "Seats packed it tight. One less row and a few more inches would be better. Shame the airlines have making more money in mind and not passenger comforts"
Pros: "My flight was late leaving buffalo ny which caused me to miss my connecting flight in Phl.... Never once was this delay communicated to ONE person sitting at the gate in buffalo. I even asked the attendant in buffalo if the plane was present at 1:10 pm and he responded that it would be landing in ten minutes. We were scheduled to board at 1:16 although I am highly disappointed to have gotten home 2.5 hours later than anticipated...communication is my biggest complaint here."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Plane was clean boarding was fine."
Cons: "Cramped, claustrophobic space. Cabin too warm."
Pros: "Great steward with fabulous sense of humor"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Crew and the fact that they lost my bag"
Pros: "That it finally took off and landed."
Cons: "Everything else! American is getting worst by the day."
Pros: "Thank god for the classical music station channel 1. Flight going back was better in comfort, space and entertainment options. But still will choose airline more carefully the next time I fly."
Cons: "Plane was small and tight. Didn't have room for small duffle bag but accepted putting under my seat, even though I don't understand people trying to get on with two bags. Wifi not free in airport and didn't work. Wifi also not free on plane. Movie was nothing i wanted to see."
Cons: "How small the plane was. Not much personal space and I am a shorter person."
Pros: "Because our first flight to philly was extremely late we were going to be unable to make our connecting flight to Wilmington sooooo had to cancel cour whole vacation to myrtle beach"
Cons: "Read above comments"
Cons: "Packed, old plane, tighter than new ones. If you can't check bags for free, maybe you should design plane to fit luggage to number of persons flying. Seems like alcohol should be free when so uncomfortable"
