Pros: There was actual room for my legs.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: JetBlue has comfy seats and is generous with snacks

Cons: Why on earth would you include BIRTH OF A NATION on the list of influght movies?! No one wants to be next to a seatmate watching that piece of racist garbage. I would have rated this flight 5 stars but seeing that in the streaming menu was upsetting and frustrating. This 2018. That movie should be reserved for watching in a historical context with commentary and analysis, not offered up to unwitting travelers as a perfectly ok thing to watch for entertainment. We don’t need more recruits to the kkk!!

Good 7.6

Pros: Entertainment was great with many options and WiFi included.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: Boarding was done quickly and the crew members were great.

Cons: I hate the fact that I had to pay for data just to see the map of where the plane is during my travel. Other airlines will at least give you a map to view as well as one or two free movies/show. They don't make you feel like your being forced to purchase data just to have a pleasant ride. I also hate the fact that I checked in my bag well before my flight (even had time to grab something to eat before boarding) and when I landed the airline informed me that my bag didn't make it on my flight. Like how does that even happen? Then tell me it's on a different flight, that landed 4 hours later. Well, my bag wasn't on that flight either but on a different flight that landed a few minutes later.

Excellent 8.8

Pros: There was a wheel chair waiting for me at each gate, but in Newark, the attendant took my next boarding pass and dissapeared for about 15 minutes, and left me near the gangway. I was starting to panic. My travel companion was not happy and started to vent. It ewas quite tense for awhile.

Cons: The seats were cramped. I boarded first because of a broken ankle and a leg boot that turns into a child's car seat when I'm done with it. I was able to work the boot off when I had a leg cramp, but didn't have enough room to put it back on.

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.
