My flight crew. Received call concerning my bag in Atlanta, although I was still in Denver.

The plane was clean and we left on time with no delays or issues. The flight crew were very nice and there was also enough overhead space for everyone’s bags.

The lines are excessively long to check a bag, there was only 1 of 4 check in kiosks working, which created it’s own line. Also the carry on bag fee at the airport was incredibly steep.

The crew was most friendly and accommodating. Pilots very informative made a could be turbulent flight very smooth.

Seats are very uncomfortable had a bar straight across bottom of my back. Lack of food and beverages. The plane should always be stocked.

It got me where I needed to go, albeit with a little effort and stress. Crew was pleasant. Thank you.

6 people overbooked, who might not have gotten seats. I was one of them. I recognize there was nothing I could have done either way but it was unpleasant to hear I might not get a seat on a flight I bought a ticket to a month ago, regardless of the price. And the return flight was dismal. Had to wait an extra 3 hours for maintanence on the plane (fine, would rather it get fixed than have an issue in the air) but we were told there would be vouchers worth some amount sent to our email after we landed back in cincinnati. It's been 3 days and I have received no such vouchers. It also turns out I payed $45 for a personal bag that was I guess covered under a personal bag? I recognize this as being partly my fault, but when I went to get my ticket "personal bag" wasn't an option, so I didn't think I had one, or my single backpack actually was $45 to take with me. Was not a terrible experience. Just not a good one.

Service was amazing!

The heat was way high on the plane, and the air vents were not blowing enough cool air!! Also the carry on bag issue is out of hand, every JetBlue flight we were on was asking for volunteers to check their bags and people are really taking advantage of the situation of bring over size bags and way too much! I know it’s a lower budget airline but come on it is ridiculous.

Okay 5.3

The crew seemed capable and came around a couple times with water. We arrived safe and sound as one would hope for, if an hour or so later than scheduled. Seats seemed roomier than most standard economy/coach (probably due to it being an older model). Though I didn’t partake they seemed to offer more complimentary snack options than other airlines.

The airplane cabin had a strong urine odor that endured throughout the red-eye flight, the air temperature had to have been at least 75 degrees, probably 80 which was a bit stifling. No usb/power at the seat which would be preferable/should be standard by now for a coast-to-coast flight. Seat didn’t recline which isn’t the end of the world but a bit of a bummer. My headphones didn’t work with the little screen at my seat but it’s ok because based on my neighbor’s screen it was just a rotating lineup of Jet Blue commercials/fake tv shows that I can easily pass on.

The crew could not have been better. I was really pleased with the movie selection. However, the food is really terrible. I got a dish that was chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans, which would have been acceptable had it not been covered in bbq sauce.

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.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
