Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "It’s always a joy to fly with JetBlue. The staff is so courteous and friendly. It makes the flight that much more enjoyable."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Cons: "Two hour delay between boarding and then sitting on the runway."
Pros: "Simple and easy flight, boarding on and off no big deal. Using your phone as a boarding pass is a great plus. Skipped the check-in process and breezed through security."
Cons: "Person I was seated next to, older women was really fidgeting and bumping me through the flight."
Cons: "JetBlue is amazing and my favorite airlines for domestic travel."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room in economy seats."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "Tv could have worked better"
Cons: "clearly communicate delays. We had no idea what was happening or what our options were."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy but that may have been because it was a small plane."
Cons: "After landing we sat on the tarmac for 2 hours! This is unacceptable. The gate was occupied by a plane having mechanical issues. This was the second time I have flown JetBlue and the second time I’ve had to sit on the tarmac for hours because of some sort of issue. Never flying JetBlue again if I can help it."
Cons: "We waited at least 8 hours in the delay and I wasn’t texted early enough to plan ahead. We waited in the airport and then we waited on the turnpike before take-off."
Pros: "LOTS OF LEGROOM"
Cons: "They have a habit of not being ontime"
Cons: "The new security check in with the automated bins."
Pros: "I thought mostly everything was great. I haven't flown in awhile and expected much worse."
Cons: "WiFi dropped out pretty shortly after takeoff stayed out for the entire flight duration."
Pros: "Free Wi-Fi, TV Channels, legroom"
Cons: "Asked the stewardess to have a blanket and water she had not brought. Service was bad ."
Pros: "Extra leg room, comfortable, leather seats, cleanliness of the cabin, efficiency and friendly manner of the staff, assigned seating and enough room in the gate area to be comfortable. I also appreciated being able to hear and understand all announcements made in the gate area and on board by the support staff and the captain."
Cons: "Some passengers in the gate area were "seat hogs" sitting in one seat and taking up one to two extra seats for their baggage while people were trying to find places to sit, especially when we experienced delays.. This is not the fault of the airlines, however, but it occurs to me that there could be gentle reminders on in print or in announcements asking people to make room for other passengers."
Cons: "2 hr delay. Poor ventilation"
Pros: "Leg room was great. Free WiFi and TVs made the flight very accommodating."
Cons: "Crying baby. Not the airlines fault."
Cons: "We are still on the plane. Can’t get off because there is lightning in the area. Ridiculous. It is raining lightly. I would really like to get off the plane"
Cons: "I have a problem with my ears, and asked the crew for nozzle drops, they don’t have"
Pros: "Having a tv"
Cons: "Sound jack not working properly , older plane no amenities"
Cons: "When I went to check in for my flight all sets had been picked only the upgraded sets were available for an extra cost. So with saying that I went to the airport with out a set number think my family and I would get bumped, even if the email said they never over book their flight,this was my first time flying jet blue I wasn't going to trust an email so the hole time I was worried about that when I should have been enjoying my last day on vacation."
Pros: "The crew could not have been more helpful and pleasant making the delay bearable as they were overtly communicative w all via text, email, and in person keeping is updated! HIGHLT RECOMMEND and will definitely be flying again. :)"
Cons: "Six hours late, then there wasn’t enough fuel and had to wait for paperwork multiple times. Hands down the worst experience I have ever had. I will not be flying JetBlue again."
Cons: "Delay and 4 hours in the craft upon arrival to Chicago"
Pros: "Loved all the available dedicated JetBlue staff available to answer questions. Have not flown JetBlue often but heard many great things."
Cons: "Weather delay which is out of JetBlue’s control but once we landed (6 hours later) we sat on the runway for an additional hour because our gate had a disable airplane occupying it. I think JetBlue could have done a better job ensuring a back up gate was available or giving their passenger updates on the situation."
Pros: "The crew was great, and so was a JetBlue pilot dead-heading in the seat next to me. I liked the space in the MoreSpace seat I paid for. I relieved that the upgrade seat came with boarding in the first group. Some airlines you pay for the seat, but you're still group 3 or 4 and, meaning all sorts of anxiety about the most miserable part of any flight, the dreaded fight for the overhead bins, wondering it you'll have to check the bag and then wait for it at the destination. Thank you for removing that."

Cons: "Delay and the space between seats"
Cons: "Another plane mechanical issue causing another delay of over 2 hours."

Cons: "This flight was very scary particularly mid air. Haven flown many times I knew this was different from usual turbulence cause my clouds or rough air. Jet blue should check"
Pros: "The ticket agent was extremely courteous and helpful. She did her best to get our party of six seats near one another. She even came and found me several minutes after I left her station to hand deliver boarding passes to me."
Cons: "The on-line checkin process was miserable. I spent over an hour and a half attempting to checkin. I received numerous "invalid document" errors. I was unable to check in all members of my party at the same time. I was unable to check in any of the minors in my party due to the fact that I could not check in more than one person at a time."
