Pros: "In this age of very tight seating. JetBlue still manages to offer a better seat, a happy and efficient crew and good service at the airport ."
Cons: "I’m a short, average weight woman that felt the space in the bathroom was impossible! There were only two bathrooms for the whole airplane, used both once and I could barely fit in it."

Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Old plane and time for the boneyard."

Pros: "An excellent crew makes the flight so much comfy."
Cons: "Everything was fine."

Pros: "Nice crew, better planes than Spirit Airlines!!"
Cons: "Multiple delays & gate changes! Arrived 2 hours later than expected- not good for my ride home who had to wait so long!!"

Cons: "Not boarding us 30 minutes late then keeping us at the gate for another 30 minutes after landing"

Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving NYC and when we landed in New Orleans, the gate was occupies, so we had to wait."

Cons: "We were delayed which happens sometimes. I departed gate 26 at JFk the problem with the delay was there was no place to sit during the 90 min delay"

Pros: "Our crew was great"
Cons: "The delay sucked all the kiosks didn’t work 45 minute wait at the help desk bad"

Cons: "Waited to book seat and had to upgrade at 70.00. Feel ripped off. Did not appear to be any other choice."

Cons: "Checking in to the connection flight was horrible. The initial flight was delayed. Once we landed in Florida, customs was apparently backed up so far that we could not leave the plane. It ended up causing us to miss the flight. Jet Blue did provide a hotel and food voucher for the night."

Pros: "Crew was so helpful... even loaned me a phone charger."

Cons: "The flight was delayed after we boarded- originally scheduled to be in time. We sat on Tarmac 1.5hrs before we were able to take off"

Cons: "Pillow and blanket were extra"

Pros: "I made a flight, canceled it that day and booked on a different airline. But, I never got a cancellation email. So all I saw was the JetBlue flight. Last night, I got an email from Kayak telling me to check in so my daughter went to the wrong airport to the wrong flight!!"
Cons: "Why was Kayak not notified that I don't have this flight anymore? I booked 2 months ago...didn't remember the details. Do you know how confusing it is to get a check-in email, after no cancellation email? So when I search my email all that comes up is the flight that was canceled! Bad communication"

Pros: "Two of the three were amazing, the other looked like a miserable person"
Cons: "The tv didn’t activate until half way home!!!"

Cons: "I love jetblue"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "entertainment, boarding-excellent Seat were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "Crew needs to learn better customer service"

Pros: "The flight was relatively quick and smooth."
Cons: "When I boarded the flight the overhead bins were already full so I had to check my bag at the gate. When I picked it up at baggage claim my bag was soaked and my pink bag had black dirt all over it. The terminal had poop on the floor in multiple spots along the main path where people walk, which is clearly disgusting and concerning. Although the flight was fine the combination of these things made it a very unpleasant experience."

Pros: "Everyone was very curteous"
Cons: "My flight was to leave at 9:00 pm and did not leave until 10:45. I did not arrive until 1:30 am in Providence. I am handicapped and found this very difficult for me. There was no explanation as to why. My family was extremely concerned for me"

Pros: "Just liovrJetBlue! The personnel is always attentive and engaging, quick with a smile and ready to lend a hand when needed. I believe other airlines should try to find out their hiring process and copy their system to get such quality people that understand service."

Cons: "Blankets are $5"

Pros: "Pilots made for a great flight in horrible weather conditions"

My phone kept telling me that I was connected but I could not use any apps or connect to the internet in anyway. I looked in the seat back pocket for information on how to connect, nothing. I googled before we took off, nothing. I loved everything else about this flight but this was incredibly frustrating, especially when I was traveling for work."

Pros: "Slightly greater than average leg room, makes a difference! Have not flown much with JetBlue in the past, but I plan to use them more in the future!"

Pros: "Plane was best coach accommodations at no upgrades . . . Ever! Plenty of space, clean, fresh, a Wow!"

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."

Pros: "JetBlue in general"

Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."

Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"

Cons: "Delta continúes to use an older 757 in this 6-hour flight with cramped seats and seating arrangement in business class.

Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "I was quite disappointed that I was never informed that in order to have a vegetarian meal it had to be ordered ahead of time and the only meal options both were meat. So rather than offering something different which I'm assuming was not even available I didn't get anything to eat. Wouldn't it make more sense to have 2 ... or even one non meat option rather than 2 with meat considering meat eaters will eat things lacking meat while vegitarian cannot."

Pros: "puntuality"
Cons: "I could't make my web checking, some problem in the webside. The sandwich was very bad."

Cons: "The ticket counter in Managua is unlawfully closing flights when overbooked and telling passengers they were late. Then they charged change of ticket costs for next day flight and did not provide overnight stay. They filled up flight then all agents leave counter so passengers have no one to check in. Then they came back and said it was too late and flight was closed and passenger’s fault. Then they said because bilked through Kayak/Justfly, they said next flight was not available and had to leave on last flight out of Managua the following day. This is unlawful and outrageous activity."

Pros: "Flight was on time , food was good."

Cons: "Food quality"

Cons: "The desk attendant tried to bump me off the flight and after a long argument and vociferous complaints on my end I was given a seat on the flight which I had already paid for. After getting a seat for the first leg of the flight I realized I had been put on standbye for the second leg of the flight which meant I would likely get stuck in Panama city. I went back to the desk and after another long argument I was given a seat. I was offered no compensation and they acted like they were doing me a favor by giving me a seat on the flight. When I sat down and asked the girl next to me how her day was going she told me she had had the same expernece as me but becuase she had complained less she had been bumped off of both her flights that she had purchased 6 months in advance without an explanation. Later on the flight from Panama city to san francisco which is a 7 hour flight, Copa airlines has security set up so that you cannot bring any liquids (even water you buy at the airport). This meant the passengers had a 7 hour flight without water. The crewd came through the cabin 2 maybe 3 times with drinks but this is not nearly sufficient for a 7 hour flight if you cant bring your own water..."

Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."

Pros: "The food was good and the crew on the plane were very nice."

Pros: "That our pilot was giving us updates as to why we were slightly delayed."
Cons: "Our flight attendant didn’t know what food we were getting. When someone asked in front of me, she said “I’m not sure it could be either turkey or ham”. If you serve customers from all walks of life including Hindus, vegetarians, Islam, Judaism, it should be expected that the flight attendant know if that is turkey or ham. Another thing is that there was no final check by the flight attendant. We landed with tray tables down, seats recline, and people were still on their laptops."

Cons: "Se pusieron a darle mantenimiento al avión a la hora de salir cuando ya teníamos más de seis horas esperando el avión. Y esperamos una hora más ya sentados adentro. Eso estuvo fatal. Y sin comida de San José a Houston.. fataaal!"

Pros: "Super easy & smooth flight. We left on time & arrived early."
Cons: "Nothing really. Honestly, I slept for half the trip, so it was pretty uneventful."

Cons: "The wi fi should be free of charge"

Cons: "Flight cancelled at last minute because of "lack of available crew"."

Cons: "The seats were too small no leg room"

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Beyond making sure we were comfortable."

Cons: "No usb hookup. No food"

Pros: "Muy buen servicio"

Cons: "Missed connection due to under staff at customs (don't they know exactly how many people land at each time?) it was ridiculous, of course no help from anyone except "you can sleep on the floor if yoi want"????"

Pros: "On time and direct"

Cons: "Same comment as above"

Pros: "The flight crew was nice and there was no problem with the actual flight. The issue was with the United employees at the check in area."
Cons: "The employees at IAD were grumpy and put off by helping us passengers. The kiosk lines were full so after having waited for a while I went to the actual counter since there we no people in line and the agent chased em back to the kiosk. I felt that that was a very poor reflect of customer service. I expect more from United."

Pros: "The people at the gate and on the plane were nice. But I flew United Airlines not Lufthansa."
Cons: "Really sad that you have to pay extra money to watch the monitors on the back of the headrest for a 2.5 trip. That's crappy. And then there is a point when you're out of the Directv Range. We're paying more for flights and then they have flight waitresses trying to monetize the time you're in the air. And when I was checking in in Berlin this guy was asking me a ton of questions, but didn't ask the next 5 people any questions. When I stared at him he started asking others questions. It's really none of your business why I'm going somewhere or what I'm doing. These terrorist attacks are giving people authority they have no business having."

Pros: "in flight entertainment"
Cons: "No where to charge devices"

Cons: "old plane and configuration in business"

Pros: "Not much to like..."
Cons: "Once again, your people need to cater to the people that flight. The very first time I flew with United was December 14, 1982. I was 7. As an adult I have either flown with Delta or US Air. I went with United on this trip and I have to say that I am never going back on another United flight."

Pros: "Smooth flight, nice staff, on time"
Cons: "Not enough leg room!!! The new planes cram us in even tighter. Unless you pay more, you suffer. Why should we have to pay more just because we are tall??!! Pocket for book etc is way too small."

Pros: "They were friendly no matter where you were seated. Always had smiles"
Cons: "All was good. No dislikes"

Pros: "Not much to like"
Cons: "Supervisors and staff rude in Houston not accommodatING at all Horrible overall exoeriance with United"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2-3 hour delay kept delaying, snack was nasty, drink yeah right it was a sip. They take a can and split it between four people. So unorganized and rude."

Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable and cramped. There was no option for on flight entertainment (despite it being an international flight). Probably would never fly United internationally again."

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"

Cons: "I enjoyed my flight!"

Pros: "The flight was very short. Loved it"
Cons: "My Ears hurt after the flight was over."

Pros: "Flight was cheap! Weekend was fun!"

Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "The flight got delay because of that I had problems at customs and immigration"

Pros: "Same as above,"
Cons: "Same as above, but no snack was offered, and there was only expansive food for purchase"

Pros: "Flight took off promptly & landed early"
Cons: "Paid a lot more than I did for the same flight via delta with half the amenities. Crew not particularly friendly"

Pros: "We had excellent service on the plane and the new snacks that are handed out was a welcomed addition."
Cons: "TSA held a planned work action to have workers call in sick and my flight left 30 minutes late as at departure time we were missing over 20 passengers who hadn't gotten through TSA yet."

Cons: "My direct flight to New Orleans was canelled forcing me to arrive five hours late for my ride from the airport."

Cons: "The tv and movie did not work"

Pros: "Love the customer service and friendly staff"

Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "The flight attendants were almost never around. Beverages were only offered once and then one additional time for water only. The seats are beyond uncomfortable with a laughable amount of leg room. You needed to pay for the entertainment including the flight map! Nothing was provided (pillows, blankets) even though it was a red-eye, international flight. United has been the worst airline I have been on and I will stay away for future flights."

Pros: "Free snacks and we arrived 30 mind early"

Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "The flight attendants."

Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "My two seats were not together and river landing very rough"

Pros: "Great crew, also informed of any delay we presented or turbulence."
Cons: "The space."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Lies about when we would leave. Next time just be honest about the fact that we didn't have a pilot instead of stringing us along for 9 hours."

Pros: "Comfortable chairs"
Cons: "There are no TV's and there are no snacks"

Cons: "There is delay in both airport for security check ! No more people to do it ! 1 hour waiting in line was very dissappointed"

Pros: "Asian chicken with slaw entree as good."
Cons: "Hummus and crackers snack for $4 was not good. UA move to pay for food only is disappointing; information about the change not detailed in ticket information, so it came as a surprise. Switch to pay per view TV is pretty outrageous, especially when priced at cost of HDTV ($6). Unless you are using 42" L+W+D suitcases, the changes in luggage policy now force you to pay $25 per suitcase on an international flight. What, they expect you to travel abroad with only 2-3 changes of clothes? The price of the ticket was reasonable ($500), but you end up adding another $100 in luggage and food costs per person."

Cons: "Did not advise that the $30.00 Costa Rica exit fee was now included in the ticket price."

Pros: "That I reached my destination safely."
Cons: "That in addition to paying for my flight, which was already a good chunk of change, I now have to pay for my checked luggage, though it was under weight, have to pay for my entertainment, have to pay for my food, so what the hell did I pay for when I booked my flight? I'm sure you'll say fluid, maintenance, salary, etc... But I don't buy it. And the seating space is reduced....so not comfortable, and more people per capita, equals more money. Left a bad taste in my mouth. UA will be on the bottom of my list for airlines to fly on."

Pros: "Late flight. Slow to board Given middle seat"

Pros: "Flight attendant on PA had beautiful speaking voice"
Cons: "Turbulence precluded cabin service"

Pros: "The boarding process and on time service"
Cons: "Terrible landing and crew in first class wasn't proactive. Pain more attention to his jump seat colleague"
