Cons: "Great value!"
Pros: "Professional crew and new aircraft ."
Cons: "Delays on departure and arrival."
Cons: "Being on time."
Pros: "The seat and leg room"
Cons: "Better in flight entertainment and WiFi"
Pros: "Crew members"
Cons: "K, my seat couldn’t recline-both ways. Tv- audio system was messed up on the way back."
Pros: "An excellent crew makes the flight so much comfy."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "Earache and headache"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours both on the way there and back"
Pros: "Short but excellently-served flight to Newark."
Cons: "My entertainment didn’t work on both flights , and WiFi was also “broken”"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The Crew was really friendly and seemed genuinely happy. The flight left on time and landed a few minutes early which is always a plus."
Cons: "With the plane fully booked I wound up having to gate check my carry on bag. This was not overly upsetting or anything terrible but it did cost me almost 20 extra minutes at baggage claim which resulted in my ride parking the car and then having to pay the parking fee."
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: "The entire trip was comfortable I have no complaints"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Three delays. From takeoff time of 9:50 to 10:40 to 11:23 to 12:05. The ostensible delay was the incoming plane, which landed before 10 PM but - lo and behold, it was an international flight, surely something we didnt know when it took off - it went to gate 94 and had to be cleared blah blah blah. Each delay was predictable and JetBlue could easily have simply informed the passengers that we would be delayed 90-120 minutes rather than stringing us along with bite sized delays with insipid explanations. If there was really anything to JetBlues "award winning customer service" I would imagine they would have not insulted everyone's intelligence and been honest about the delays - which pushed arrival time to 2 am. I travel a good bit - three or four times a month - but cant remember the last time I flew JetBlue. JetBlue will certainly be right there with Frontier and Allegiant on airlines I'll seek to avoid. I dont know if it was just base level incompetence or if they dialed it up for the occasion, but it was on full display for the holidays."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Seats are very comfortable"
Cons: "The flight is so much delayed. The flight attendent seemed not happy about me with a two year old, which makes traveling with a kid so unpleasant. When my kid asked to go to restroom, it seemed that we’re troulesome. My mom missed the water when they gave out drinks, but they did not come back for us. When I went to the back to ask for my mom, they said they’re cleaning up already."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and great entertainment."
Cons: "Headphone jack had static"
Pros: "On time Great service Friendly staff Boarded quickly Landed 30 minutes early"
Pros: "Great flight attendant especially the gentleman!!! Super helpful even with a bunch of cranky New Jerseyians on a delayed flight!"
Cons: "Too hot! AC was going on and off??"
Pros: "I enjoyed the comfort once boarded and flight attendants warm welcome"
Cons: "Our flight was 3 hours late. Was supposed to leave at 10pm and left at 1:13 am!! Customer service at jetblue kept lying about the aircrafts whereabouts and crew. They barely gave us updates, and at one point once everyone started asking questions and getting upset, they disappeared from the desk for an hour at least. The crew was late, there was no food, customer service had quite an inappropriate attitude, and tvs on the plane barely worked,"
Pros: "Cabin crew was warm, friendly, engaging, fun, yet professional and prompt with their service"
Pros: "The boarding crew was amazing, my boyfriend and I had different seats and they were able to arrange for us to sit next to each other. They were polite and very accommodating."
Cons: "The flight was terrible it seemed like this was the first time the pilot drove a plane. Even two pilots that were sitting were speaking about how terrible the flight was. And the flight attendants were acting like they had no home training, no manners/ professionalism and always had an attitude. These flight attendants were making jokes about a belligerent passenger instead of trying to help fix the situation. This was my first time ever taking a JetBlue flight and will sure be my last, especially when I paid 100 dollars more for this flight than what United was offering- I should of took United."
Pros: "fast boarding and no lines for baggage drop"
Cons: "delayed flight almost stayed up all night."
Cons: "All 3 connecting flights you sold me were not able to connect with each other, they lost my luggage because of you my trip is ruined, I hate kayak.com and I hate my experience with you, how can you be so ignorant to people's needs"
Pros: "5 hour weather related delay"
Cons: "Delays"
Cons: "It is very difficult to contact the airline via phone. I had to wait almost an hour to speak to a representative. I was told I could call 36 hours before flight to get seat reservations. They should improve phone service. Otherwise flight was very good."
Cons: "The TVs were not working and shutting off sporadically."
Pros: "Friendly crew & pilot!"
Pros: "Only liked the price of the travel ticket."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. Stewardess' were rude. The only reason we flew JetBlue was because of the price. Always flew JetBlue but recently very poor customer service."
Pros: "Our flight broke halfway to NY—cabin lost pressure. We had to turn around and for an hour 45 mins without AC, emergency land in Orlando (instead of landing in an airport we were flying over). Then we were stuck in Orlando in the middle of he night. Long story short I got in to Newark at 5am and my bags went to LaGuardia."
Pros: "Even though we had a nonrefundable fare, when due to "Quinn" we couldn't get to our extra-early flight, they put us on the next flight, and actually got us seats together. Nice work!!"

Cons: "New staff was working at the airport New building) and had some issues, but not a Jet Blue problem."

Cons: "Only problem was that the flight was delayed."

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: "captain and crew were friendly and 'upbeat' with addressing passengers. glad there was small drink and snacks offered even if flight was very short. definitely keep the snacks! I was glad to have it as I hadn't eaten anything before traveling and needed it."
Cons: "Delay the fligh two times"
Pros: "The personnel was very courteous. All stewards, on both flights were vey polite and personable. The seats are very comfortable."

Cons: "Idled on the tarmac for over an hour. Ruined my day."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "Flight delayed about an hour. Booked more than 4 months in advance but apparently seats were not assigned on this segment. Not even at check-in, only at gate.

Cons: "Stayed waiting for airport to clear our gaye for about one hour after we landed."
Pros: "Delay. First it was about 20 min, then 30, then 49 and 55. At the end more than 70 minutes delay. Too much, too frequent on delta!!!!"
Pros: "drink carts came around twice"
Cons: "Even though there were sunchips available, they were not giving them out to everyone. Only the people that paid up in coach got the sun chips. The rest of us got these sad bag of pretzels and cheesey snacks. So sad. Why wouldn't Delta offer the same snacks to everyone? Seems like such a small additional cost compared to such an offensive action. The money you save is certainly lost in bad publicity."

Cons: "We had to get seats at boarding because of the flight delay. She offered us two seats in the back. I knew they don't pushback so I said no. She had given the woman ahead of me two seats in comfort plus. Did not offer that and was rude. There were at least a few empty seats in that area. As a courtesy to us having 1)been delayed in Costa Rica. And then 2) a long wait for the connecting flight in Atlanta it would have been reasonable to offer those seats. Which remained empty"

Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Cons: "Follow through on reservations made 6+ months in advance. And the $10 vouchers to make up for your terrible mistake are ridiculous, that does not make up for a whole day wasted. Also, food smelled and tasted horrible."

When I got to Copa check in they told me I didn’t have an assigned seat (and I got there very early) and that she couldn’t help me get a seat assignment until I got to the gate. Then at the gate very poor customer service and she gave me a middle seat without even really looking at the flight. On thr flight food was mediocre. Not good aircirculation on the flight, ac was not good. And I was also on the last group to board, boarding process was a disaster. Will not use Kayak again."

Pros: "Flight to Panama City from JFK went well."
Cons: "The tickets we paid for back in August of 2017 were bought for a direct flight. When checking in for our flight back to JFK on March 18th, they told us there were no seats available. They then put us on a connecting through Orlando, all of us had to sit separately now. We had to each spent money we did not intend to use for this vacation on food since our day was well extended beyond expected and parking fees for keeping our car at JFK longer. Once arrived in Orlando, two out of the four of us missed our flight to JFK because they gave us the wrong boarding passes and because we are students in college, lost multiple hours of studying tonight. We had to then work with Delta who was kind enough to find us a flight multiple hours later. Like said before, this split our group up and caused multiple difficulties. We will never fly Copa again. They believe a $400 Copa airlines voucher is justifiable for what happened but it is not. I’ll never fly with them again for this inconvenience so a voucher doesn’t do anything."

The woman to my right was close to 300 lbs and was spilling into my seat. The gentleman next to me kept putting his elbows in my side. The cabin was way too hot -- uncomfortably so -- and the air vents barely pushed out air. The entertainment system on the plane was broken. I couldn't wait to land in NY."

Cons: "The seat's headphone jack was broken and it was difficult to recline. My seat numbers were changed on one flight and to other in the second part... Not expected"
Pros: "Llke"
Cons: "The atención"
Pros: "Very comfortable seats, good food, excellent service!"
Pros: "Always on time and Great Plains"
Pros: "Staff was nice. Relatively comfortable, good movie selection. Travel voucher"
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Cons: "They did not load my luggage in the airplane because there was not enough room. They promised to deliver it to my hotel at the night of the same day, but they did not. They gave me the same excuse, there was not enough room in the airplane, even though my luggage had a priority to be in the airplane. I had to discuss it with the call center stuff for a long time to make the arrangement to receive it as soon as possible. The call center stuff was not very helpful and just gave me a lot of unreasonable excuses. I am very disappointing with Avianca."
Pros: "Good waiting area and attentive gate agents. Good crew and service for the flight, too."
Pros: "I was traveling with an injured hand and the flight attendants were very nice & helpful"
Cons: "Business class not worth it at all. Seats don't recline and there is next to no separation from main cabin with its crying babies."
Cons: "Departure delayed. Seat does not recline. Not even a good foot rest. On first class."
Pros: "the flight was on-time"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Pros: "Excellent flight. Aeromexico is great"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Everything was great. Love Aeromexico"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "WiFi"

Cons: "2 hour delay, terrible"
Pros: "great service"
Cons: "the food"
Cons: "Food is baad"
Pros: "I loved to have a very good meal, a nice tv that worked after all, there was a blanket"
Cons: "I didn’t like the headphones, the line to the bathroom was always very long because there was only 1 bathroom to all the plane"
Cons: "The flight was never listed on any airport screen and the gate was not provided on my boarding pass (this was after I couldn't get a digital boarding pass for no reason that was ever explained to me). Stressful and frustrating experience."
Pros: "Everything, it was punctual dispite the chaos México City Airport is, the food was awesome (first class) and we arrived sooner."
Cons: "This is not about Aeromexico. Migratory police is hard now, do not have connections inside the States or you would loose it"
Pros: "At check in was given an emergency exit seat with leg room which was lovely since I'm tall."
Cons: "Cold ham and cheese on bread... Was cheap and gross. WiFi didn't work the whole flight. Insensitive flight attendants assume I'm with others as a family just because we were black. Not very friendly at all. Safety video makes it seem like everyone in Mexico/on their flights present as white. Should have more diverse actors. Get it together and be representative of the population you serve."
Pros: "I like the entertainment choices and the blanket."
Cons: "Food could be better."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked but they dint say anything not to be responsible so they were telling passengers that the plane was overweight"
Cons: "I have my reservation and payment Aeromexico didn’t care they put me on a stand by list as they overbooked the flight but these time instead of them telling you that it was overbooked their pretext was the weight of the plane"
Pros: "Coming back was okay, fly attendants were nice everything was good. thank you."
Cons: "Going to Mexico, I ask for a glass of water and the fly attendant ignored me and she did not come back. I know she heard me, she gave a drink to the other passenger"
Pros: "I enjoyed the hot dinner with red wine."
Pros: "Flight attendant Antonio was great! Friendly, funny and kind."
Cons: "The food was pretty terrible. I'm certain the yogurt we were given was spoiled. The plane also suffered from broken flaps, which meant we went in for a "high speed landing." Not ideal. Shouldn't these things be fixed before an international flight?"
Cons: "The airline"
Pros: "Punctuality"
Pros: "Everything was great!!!"
Cons: "nothing to comment."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible staff"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, as well as the crew"
Cons: "I got sick with the food, and the flight was delayed, I'm visiting just for the weekend, so time is very important to me, if you add this two issues, well it's not the best of my trips"
Pros: "Food!"
Cons: "Crew ladies were a bit rude, it was a long flight and a smile wouldn't have hurt instead they looked people like they were aliens speaking a nonexistent language."
Pros: "In general the service was good!"
Cons: "In México city needs to be better organized the people from Aeromexico who attende the customers!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Entire experience. Fly a better airline"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Worst customer service, ticket reps are rude and lack any kind of sympathy. Flight attendants were rude and inattentive. I will never fly Aeromexico. I will avoid it like the plague. If you can go through another airline."
Pros: "Quick boarding, takeoff and loading off the plane."
Cons: "I paid additional fee for preferred seating and my seat did not recline."
Pros: "There was nothing to like about my experience."
Cons: "I booked round trip ticket's to Cancun from NYC. I had a change of plans . I needed to add my 2,4yr old to my trip.The Aromexico agent wanted to charge me over 1000.00 for the two children, to travel with me even though online the tickets were $200.00.They would not let me book my tickets online because the children were minors even though my ticket was already bought. I ended up purchasing tickets on delta to get to Cancun. However I was under the impression that I would return with Aeromexico on the round trip ticket I had already bought.NO! according to Aeromexico even though you buy a round trip ticket if you fail to use 1 leg of the trip you loose both ways WHAT! Then they refused to allow me to speak to a supervisor it was hands down the worst experience I have ever had with an airline in the 30 yrs that I have been traveling internationally. I would paddle boat rather than use this air again."
Pros: "Some of the staff (especially at the counter) was nice. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "Flight attendants weren't particularly nice or helpful. No veg options to eat. Had to wait forever at the tarmac."
Pros: "Entertainment system is excellent"
Cons: "Movie choices were average. More new releases."
Pros: "Is on time"
Cons: "The food is terrible"
Pros: "Aeromexico stole my money and never let me board a flight. My initial flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues after a 3 hour delay in the airport. At this point it was 3AM and all passengers were told to call Aeromexico's support number to re-book their flights. Aeromexico staff does not speak English well and when I asked them to speak slower I was cursed at and hung up on. I finally called again and was given 2 options: agree to a flight that would DESTROY my vacation or get a refund. Scared and exhausted, I told them I didn't understand, and the flight didn't work, and guess what, they re-booked me anyway, and said that since I was re-booked any change to my ticket would entitles them to my entire $1,100 fare. Aeromexico is a criminal enterprise. Never book with them! Kayak, you should cut all ties with this airline!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had purchased a ticket to fly from Puerto Escondido to Mexico City on Thursday, November 24. When I arrived at the airport, I came to an airport that was "shutdown". According to a few people I spoke to, it was because of a protest. I was not emailed or notified that I was wasting my time and money trying getting to an airport that wasn't flying out any planes that day. I was very distraught and disappointed because I am a foreigner and there was no representative front the airport or airline that this was happening and what's are the next steps I should take to get on the next plane back to United States. I spent hours and hours calling Aeromar about rebooking my flight for tomorrow so I can get out of this city. It was a nightmare on the phone because it was like the employees were trained not to help. I was told it wasn't their fault, and I need to call aero Mexico to get this straightened out. Not one employee from the many I spoke to consistently throughout the day tried to rebook my flight. They wanted me to pay for another flight which is absolutely ridiculous. I missed my flight because of some protest, something not in my control, and i kept being told too bad. I did not get offfere one solution by your staff. I was left to figure what I was going to do by myself. I didn't leave Puerto Escondido until 24 hours after I was suppose to and it was not by the help of your staff. Because of this, I will highly consider not buying tickets from this airline of their is any other option because it was an awful experience. One of He aero Mexico employees told me to stop acting childish because I was upset about missing my flight for reasons i didn't control. The customer service for aero Mexico was worse then aeromar. They kept blaming aero mar and kept saying they need to figure everything out, yet these two airline work together. Aero Mexico is the one that helps get the flight to other smaller cities. All around I had a miserable day and not one person I called from aero Mexico, like aero mar helped me or offered a solution."
Pros: "The seats were extremely comfortable. They provided free entertainment."
Pros: "Aeromexico is the worst airline ever!!! I will never fly with this airline ever again! They made me pay another flight to get back home because of a mistake from one of their staff!! They are so incompetent and they take advantage of the fact that we have to go home..... so disappointed!!"
Pros: "On time. Comfortable. Curtious."
Pros: "The economic price for the great service,because we can travel more often."
Cons: "The kind of sandwich too dry."
Pros: "Una hora de retraso"
Cons: "Una hora de retraso"
Pros: "the only good service is the way the crew treats you"
Cons: "All the flights in on the round trip were delay. on the first flight going to my destination, the airline switch gates twice. the seat on the plane were uncomfortable. had to get back massage once i got home. on my way back to new york. A 80 minute layover in mexico city turn into a 230 min layover."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Aeromexico sucks"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good service, convenient schedule, personal entertainment available"
Cons: "A broader selection of new movies releases would be great"
Cons: "On the Mexico layover you have to fill paperwork like if you are going to stay in Mexico. My passport number was filled with a different ink color and paperwork was rejected. I was really tired and this paperwork took forever. Then after you go through the line and your paperwork is checked you have to go get your checked in luggage. I didn't like that you have to find the carrousel and pick your bags... that alone took 50 mins. For some reason we were waiting and waiting for the first bags out of the plane to come out. After that you have to form line again to put all your luggage into an x-ray machine. Then there's one final luggage paperwork check and Then you have to take your luggage to a carrousel again so they can board it into the plane. Then you have to go through security and then you have to go find the departure gate at the monitors in the terminal. Ours did not have a gate until 10 mins before departure. Signage at the Mexican airport is very poor. You have to ask people."
Pros: "Great service from Aeromexico staff, & good food Tech friendly (charging station for phone/tablet) tvs. Comfy Seats"
Cons: "The only complaint I have about Aeromexico is the overlay. The time you have to spend waiting for your connection flight is a little to much. Otherwise my trip was great"
Pros: "I liked it because the fly was on time"
Cons: "The part I didn't like was that my fly had a connection in Monterrey Mex. and I had to wait for about 11 hrs on my fly from Monterrey to my destination ( Mexico City)"
Pros: "Flight was great....food was okay"
Cons: "Waited on the ground in Mex City for 30 minutes, waiting for door to open then waiting for a bus to pick up pax and finally waited on bus to get to terminal..."
Pros: "Overall the service was nice. It's a shame that the negative had to detract so severely from what was an otherwise nice trip."
Cons: "I'd been warned that Aeromexico is notorious for baggage weight overages. When returning to JFK from Mexico City, I was lucky with my checked bag, but when boarding the flight, an employee had me put my carry-on, my purse, the heavy wool coat I had removed during security, along with a 1.5L bottle of water and other items I'd purchased in the terminal, on a scale, then declared my carry-ons were 4 kilos over the airline's allowance. I then had to head down the terminal to a customer service desk to pay ~$60USD so I'd be allowed to board and not miss my flight. I was the last person on-board. They didn't do this at JFK on my 1st leg of the trip, as I suspect they know they'd never get away with this in the States. I spoke to employees aboard the flight, then at JFK upon arrival, and also on the phone. No luck yet regarding a refund for highway robbery."
