Cons: "Too cold to sleep. In flight status screens poor. Map very low resolution."
Pros: "They have cheezits and leg room and it's a quick direct flight"
Cons: "Male flight attendant seemed annoyed to be there. It wasn't obvious but as someone who works in the service industry I could tell he was being short with people and could have provided a much better experience if he wanted to be there.

I hope I only have to fly JetBlue going forward!"
Pros: "The efficiency and helpful staff was just great."
Pros: "Left right on time."
Pros: "Check in crew at BOS was great - this team of folks is not on the rating, but wanted to call out that they were very friendly and helpful, one kind lady walking me thru the bag tag printing process when I hadn’t realized I needed to do that."
Cons: "The entertainment screen was distracting. I was trying to read and would have preferred that it was dark. I didn’t want to bother anyone to ask how to shut it off so I just put up with it. Is it possible to shut the screen off if you don’t want to use It?"
Pros: "JetBlue has the best snack options."
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew while still having a good time and making it a great experience. Am a frequent flier and this is an airline I hope to travel on again very soon!"
Pros: "That I got home"
Cons: "It was bumpy and my mom is a very nervous person"
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.

Cons: "horrible sound quality on the in flight movies/TV"

Pros: "Got a TSA Pre Check stamp on my ticket to start, flight was on time and the crew was professional and very accommodating."
Pros: "Friendly polite crew, good takeoff and landing, little turbulence. Our flight was delayed, but only by half an hour."
Cons: "Having to pay twice because I'm a person of size and hang only little over when most of the back of the plane was empty. I can see having to pay for the seat to reserve it, and having to pay if I'm using 2 seats and the plane is full otherwise, but if the flight isn't full, I should be able to get a refund for one of the seats. It's discrimination and it's not okay. Or, you know, have seats that fit all your customers. Also the SiriusXM sound was of extremely poor quality."
Pros: "I just really appreciate the staff ,the attitudes are wonderful always there ready to help you. And the airplanes are very comfortable and roomy. And it seems like my flights are always on time or early."
Pros: "TV sets JetBlue apart - except when it doesn't work. Snack choices are bad."
Cons: "No TV; plane was not clean - smelled like the toilet overflowed. And this was the first flight of the day - the plane was parked at the gate for over an hour prior to boarding."
Pros: "Professional, friendly, always on-time or earl, nothing lost ever.. Smooth flight. Always the BEST!"
Pros: "The service was good, the snacks are always good."
Cons: "It was a 9:15 pm flight, and was delayed about an hour due to maintenance issues. So it made for a later than expected arrival. But I am glad you took the care to make sure that everything was okay by changing the gate and putting us on another plane. The flight was the bumpiest I have had with JetBlue, but that was just due to the atmosphere."
Cons: "Night flights should include blankets and pillows. (at no extra cost) Just like a hotel. Traveling with bulky blankets and pillows in order to be able to sleep on a night flight is not always possible. JB provides eyemask and ear plugs, which is ridiculous. I can bring my own eyemask and ear plugs. I even paid extra for upgrade seats! The headrests are not adjustable and the recline is barely noticeable. It was a long 6 hour flight! No entertainment. I have flown other airlines to South America and been able to enjoy full feature recent release films, TV shows and games. Why can't JB figure out how to do that on their international flights? No meals. All other airlines offer meal service on their international flights. I pay as much for JB flights as I have for other airlines going to South America. The value for JB tickets just isn't there. To fly JB, picture yourself getting on board with your own pillows, blankets, entertainment and food. That about sums it up."

Pros: "Boarding: c'mon...too many groups and subgroups. Radiculous!"
Cons: "STOP the non-sense of so many boarding goups. What happened to Common Sense boarding? Ill and needing add'l medical help, First Class, Plus Class, then General Boarding. Give me a Break with all the other subgoups for Delta, all B. S. !!"
Pros: "Crew did a great job. Pilot was very informative. Great job working with what they have."
Cons: "My feet were absolutely freezing. I sat 4D (and paid for first class tickets but somehow delta didn’t even give me comfort plus for this flight). Plane is tiny. I’m 6’2” 205 lbs and I barely fit in the seat. This is a regional flight (even though it’s 2 hrs) so service is very minimal."

Cons: "No problems at all!"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Entertainment selection is impressive (though I didn't use it). Drinks and snacks are provided."

Pros: "seating at row 2a was roomy enough only because the seat in front was empty do no danger of a recline. The service was excellent, entertainment options excellent and products in bathroom are nice - Malin & goetz. The captain came out and greeted everyone, which I appreciated"
Cons: "The food served for dinner was not great. Pasta with a mushroom sauce. Sauce was really soupy. I'm not really crazy about the snack basket options - not enough savory and no chocolate. The seats on the new 737-900 are not comfortable"
Pros: "We liked the jet-ways to get to the plane, the food was acceptable. the plane was clean and the crew was helpful. The missing luggage was found and delivered to my home."
Cons: "The seats were so tight that even average size people had trouble getting their seats back a little. Somehow kids were placed in exit rows and seat exchanges had to be made. They ended up in my row. One piece of my luggage showed it was available at the conveyor but couldn't be found. It delayed our long day and was frustrating to think it was missing. No distinction where Delta has it's gates in Mexico City."

Cons: "I brought the same Samsonite carry on luggage piece that I’ve used on multiple major airlines (Avianca, United, American, Copa, etc.) with no problems, and AeroMexico says it’s too big, the wheels didn’t fit into the sizing bin. Super frustrating if one of the most popular luggage manufacture makes a “carry-on” bag, airlines should realize people will be arriving with the expectations that they can use it as a carry on. Anyways I’m out $58 both ways ($116). I will not fly with AeroMexico again because of this simple fact."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful and the service was perfect. Even free alcohol in economy! The comparison to American Airlines from Montana and Dallas was night and day. Viva México, Viva Aeromexico!"

Pros: "I enjoyed the movies and the accuracy of the flight time etc very much! It was super helpful during long flights."
Cons: "I couldn’t understand 90% of what anyone was saying due to it all being in Spanish which I found to be a little rude to be honest. You know you have a lot of English speaking only people on your flights yet you do not make any announcements in both Spanish and English like a lot of other airlines do."

Cons: "Wish there were outlets in the plane or WiFi, the screens would black and restart interrupting your movie."

Cons: "Amazing flight"
Pros: "Best seating I've ever had flying coach on a long (8hr) flight. Boeing 787, great airplane! with the exception of the awful food, great flight."
Cons: "bad, bad food. terrible chicken dinner, even worse pasta, no salt and pepper, a bun that tasted and looked dried and tasteless, no butter."
Cons: "I was sent to Sala A & there was agate # 1 there; however, there was a second Sala A with a Gate #1 & from there my plane was boarding by the time I made it to the correct boarding gate it was too late for me to board the plane. I had to purchase another plane ticket in order for me to make it to the United States. It was a bad situation & the employees were very rude. They blame me & the manager never show his face to help me out. He could have at least given me a discount given the award situation. But, the customer service or will to help me was just not there."
Cons: "Everytime we fly with Aeromexico our luggage is misplaced. This is the third time our luggage has been lost or forgotten. When asked for assistance not one flight member is there to help, and we end up waiting hours for assistance."
Pros: "Priority boarding is what I like in this trip."
Cons: "The crew had occupied the front overhead lugguge space that cause passenger need to find space for their luggage not around their seat. The crew member also occupied the remaining business class, is it better to upgrade some customer to the business to have great experience for the trip."
Cons: "My bags were left at origin airport (SFO), now I have 2 kids in cancun that can't go to the pool because we have no clothes, I will need to figure out tomorrow what to do. Not happy right now!"
Pros: "we were shocked by how great the flight accommodations were, from the inflight entertainment to the food/beverage service to the flight attendants."
Pros: "To get from GDL to MGM requires 3 flights. Two were cancelled and the other delayed. The cancelations were due to maintenance issues. Delta apparently is flying plans that should be in the shop."

Cons: "Lost my luggage, didn't get it until the next night, when I had a very important wedding in Mexico."
Cons: "I waited 50 minutes for my bag claim with priority tag. Customer service desk employee told me wait...wait without any excuse or explanation. No more Aeromexico.....period"
Cons: "Aeromexico dis not let me board my flight from Mexico to Vancouver. They said they couldn't clear my name and print me a boarding pass. Stuck at airport for 14hours and ended up flying aircanda to yvr the next morning. Terrible customer service/care. Never flying aeromexico again."
Pros: "The crew is always kind and helpful, and notorious airplane food was actually a joy! We were fed so well, we had leftovers for later. The individual screens had a good choice of movies and music. The Dreamliner 787 was quite nice. More legroom than other planes, an abundance of bathrooms and open space to stand up for a while (and rock your cranky toddler!)"
Cons: "I had no problems with the flight at all, but it wasn't as nice as the trip down. They both said they were Dreamliner 787s but on the way down the airplane was amazing! The overhead compartments were the best, lots of head and leg room, and the electronic tinting on the windows was really cool. The return trip was on the same kind of plane but it seemed just a bit older, with less room and older window shades. Not a huge deal, just not as amazing as the other plane."
Pros: "Aeromexico puts delta, United, American to shame. Every time I fly with Aeromexico they have on-time flights, food and drinks included, friendly service and excellent price for tickets. No last second delays or flight rescheduling as happens with US carriers. I'll take Aeromexico ANY day over the shitty US airlines. And for those complaining about info not being readily available in English, it doesn't hurt to learn a little Spanish"
Cons: "They ran out of Corona."
Pros: "Coffee, SMILES on faces of the Capt., Stewards, Professional Appearances by AM staff from beginning to end. (unlike American Airlines) We had a snafu at boarding and a Miss Gina Diaz in San Jose Airport was MOST super helpful. We ar3e booking more flights on this airlines! FOOD was AWESOME.... really!"
Pros: "good food, good entertainment, on time departure and arrival"
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!"
Cons: "Old plane slow crew. Seemed like they never were around j. Business class"
Cons: "When we deplaned from QRO, the flight, 644 was not listed on the board. This caused a few moments of confusion since the connection was in 45 minutes."
Pros: "The boarding part was good."
Cons: "People who work at aeromexico need to speak more English, too much Spanish speaking with no English speaking. I guess you do not cater for tourists speaking English. I think that the aeromexico employees in mexico city is very rude, I lost my flight, because of that. They did not want to wait a few minutes for my connecting flight. I ended losing the flight and had to take delta back to NY City with better service and fare. When I ask at the counter for another fare by aeromexico - they told me $1,500 for business class and I paid $534.00 with delta. Plus aeromexico need to have more than one fight per day to NYC."
Pros: "The touch screens had a good selection of movies and tv, which was very nice."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"

Pros: "First Class Food (Dinner was short rib) was better than most flights. Pilot was very friendly and personable with his in-flight communications."
Cons: "Departure was delayed due to late arrival of aircraft; boarding gate was changed at PHX from A21 to B27 where there is no Admirals Club."
Cons: "Food options were just snacks. On a 4 hour flight? What??"
Cons: "We were told to board quickly so we could leave on time, boarded and sat for more than a half hour. The landing at Monterey was dreadful, hit hard first touchdown and then two more bounces."

Cons: "No one knew what was going on. We boarded late, then sat there for 40 minutes with no communication, then we had to de-plane. But they couldn't get the jet way to work, so it took forever."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed and we were transported to a resort. At the end of the day our safety came first."
Cons: "Lost one day."
Cons: "The plane was delayed almost two hours and we had to deplane about a 3 minute walk to the airport in the rain. What I’ve come to expect from American Airlines unfortunately"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed for almost 3 hours. They accomodated us with free snacks and sandwiches. The flight crew were very professional and were nice to us, because a lot of us were worried about making our flight. They kept us updated with all the changes. They had good entertainment selections. The pilot got us to our destination about 5 minutes early."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed about 7 times, we changed gates twice, and the I got to my second layover with 20 minutes to spare instead of the usual 2 1/2 hours. When I tried asked the stewardess if I could deplane with business because I was running late for my connecting flight, she said they no longer do that because passengers don't listen to them. Instead of trying, she juat said no. I felt like an inconvience to her, like it was my fault I didn't have enough time between my flights."

Cons: "Terrible airplane food"

Cons: "Had to lie about forgetting my phone charger in the waiting area to get off the plane & give my niece a hug who arrived early on a neighboring flight from NY to RNO as we switched off to take care of my dad who just had a triple bypass. If two people are past security - there should be NO ISSUE with them meeting - we have already been screened & a hug or anything else should not be a crime."
Pros: "Staff werected all very helpful and and pleasant. Pilot navigated a smooth line."
Cons: "Nothing stands out"
Pros: "The fact that I was finally put in the plane at the last minute"
Cons: "The fact that I was confirmed on this flight and no one would give me a seat assignment. Not when I checked in 2 hours early for my initial flight from MHT nor when I arrived in Philadelphia to catch this next leg. They made me wait at the gate and then went and checked the plane and came back and said board and take any empty seat! Never again!"
Pros: "Quick boarding, no delays."
Cons: "The control for the entertainment system is strangely located on the armrest, so the person next to me was constantly changing my system's volume and channels by simply using the armrest."
Cons: "This was a red-eye from Costa Rica to Chicago. I sat in the very back row, so I really felt the turbulence back there. But I had no chance of sleeping through it because my seat would not lean back; in fact it was so far upright that I was almost leaning forward. I can normally sleep on any flight but this was like sitting in a tiny cage designed to prevent me from finding any remotely comfortable position or getting any rest at all. They should not be allowed to sell a seat like this."
Cons: "Where should I begin? Incoming flight was late, so UA 1560 was delayed. After boarding, IFE was not working. Crew could not get it to work. Snack options were NON-existent for a 5-hour flight. Upon arriving at Newark, the gate was not available. Come on United this is your hub. Final straw, the baggage took about 50 to 60 minutes to arrive."
Pros: "The pilot and crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The flight had a THIRTEEN hour delay. The plane was very old and broken (we couldn’t fly because of a broken fuel gauge)."
Pros: "Crew can be nicer"
Cons: "Food and crew"
Pros: "I didn't die."
Cons: "Bedlam at gate. Three overwhelmed employees trying to kick people off the plane. So many seats on this plane that there's no legroom, but also it makes the plane so heavy that it can't take off safely unless conditions are ideal. THIS IS A REAL THING THAT REALLY HAPPENED. We left 2.5 hours late due to "weather" (not because there are too many goddamn seats on the plane.) Then, before landing, we were asked to stay in our seats so people who are late for connections can get off first. Seems reasonable. THEY DIDN'T HAVE A GATE FOR US WHEN WE LANDED! The captain said 20 minutes til we can get a gate, but he'll try to get it sooner. He apparently didn't succeed, because it was 45 minutes (!!) before we got to the gate! As a result, 3 hours 15 minutes late. Officially this is "due to weather." Sure."
Pros: "Staff was VERY KIND and helpfull"
Cons: "They only had ONE warm food choice (mozzarella turkey sandwich) and none Gluten Free option. When traveling in a 5hour flight at 7am you expect to at least be able to pay for a decent breakfast..... wasn’t my chance or my 3kids. Very dissapointed"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very professional, efficient, and kind. The plane was in good condition and my seats were comfortable enough."
Cons: "The only food or entertainment offered besides a cookie or advertisement for the airline magazine had to be purchased despite the fact that it was an international plan more than 4 hours long."
Pros: "It got me to Houston, but that’s about it"
Cons: "First we boarded and the plane was cools and i am traveling with my mom who is 76 and a little frail, we ask for a blanket and the response was there no blankets in economy, with a condescending tone. Unnecessary and mean"
Cons: "The website doesn’t specify that the last row has no recline!"
Cons: "Checked baggage fees!!"
Pros: "United nunca da comida que merezca la pena y por suerte esta vez no sobre vendieron el vuelo."
Cons: "La comida, es escasa y ridícula"
Pros: "The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I already knew I was going to pay $200 to ship my boards back home (I wonder if golf clubs which are roughly the same size cost as much,) but when pre-purchasing through the app for an "oversized" bag you have to put a "one" in the checked bag and a "one" in the oversized bag even though they're the same bag, but then they charge you for two, and when you tell the check-in person that you only have one bag of course they can't issue a refund. No, they tell you that you get to call customer service when you return home."
Pros: "At least I made it back home in one day. The airline honored our business ageeement."
Cons: "I waited for a wheele chair that was requested from day one, but the wheeled chair never arrived. I had to venture out on foot despite my resent back surgery. It took me tree times more the time that usually takes me to make it to my destination. I only thank God for protecting me through this day."
Pros: "I enjoyed the crew and the service... Top notch"
Cons: "No tv on plain no free wifi like it was advertised"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time Direct flight!"
Cons: "Food terrible! No options. $10 sandwich only choice."
Pros: "It was a great flight over all but it was very cold inside the plane"
Cons: "Immigration lines at the IAH airport was long and security clearance line was even longer."
Cons: "Everything good"
Pros: "Crew on the plane were amazing and boarding experience was very efficient, which is less commonly seen at O'Hare so it was nice."
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!"
Cons: "Flight kept being delayed"
Cons: "One of the flighty attendents was extremely rude and aggressive. Very unpleasant."
Cons: "Sleeping in the airport"
Pros: "Updates on delays were helpful."
Cons: "2 out of 3 flights were delayed due to baggage scanning problems."
Pros: "They assigned us to seat 7 by chance because flight was too empty to balance weight..it wad a blessing to have extra room"
Cons: "I was having a terrible back pain so i went to the back where the crew was setting and relaxing and asked for a pillow..they told me they didn't have any..asked if they have a blanket and and they said yes..but never gave it too me..flight was almost 4 hours with no food..COPA AVIANCA charge less and offers full meals..."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and comfortable. The atmosphere was nice and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew took so long to help me find an overhead bin location for my carry-on bag. Also, they need to provide FREE entertainment and better snacks for international flights."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Both flights were INCREDIBLY delayed. First, the flight from San Jose was delayed 1.5 hours because they were "waiting for the aircraft." After everybody finally boarded the plane an announcement was made that somehow the luggage crew had damaged the cargo hold, and that everybody would have to deplane. It would take 45 minutes for maintenance crew to arrive to assess the situation. People got up, got their luggage out of the overhead bins, and started moving to the front of the plane. The pilot then came back on the intercom and told everyone they would have to return to their seats. Roughly an hour later we finally took off. It would have been the decent thing to do to AT LEAST offer the passengers something (i.e. comp drinks or snacks), but the cheapskates at United DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE. Multiple people missed their connections. Fast forward to IAH--> SAT. Another late flight. This time, everybody boarded the plane only to be informed that due to a problem with the plane's computer everybody would have to sit on the plane while they "rebooted" its computers. This was done TWICE. UNITED AIRLINES, GET IT TOGETHER. There is a very good reason you are consistently ranked one of the WORST US-flagged carriers, which makes you one of the MOST HATED AIRLINES ON THE PLANET. I really and truly pray that the US airlines and their lobbyists lose their battle to prevent foreign flagged carriers from operating within the US, because you all deserve to go bankrupt."
Pros: "SJO to Houston was excellent. Houston to Nashville was mediocre."
Pros: "It got me to my destination."
Cons: "The service, entertainment, boarding, comfort, and crew haven't changed at all ever since I've flown with united. The crew just seemed to be there to get their pay checks not serve the customers."
Pros: "Good non.stop to Costa Rica."
Cons: "Best flight to Costa Rica out of the tristate area."
Cons: "Having to pay $7.99 for entertainment is ridiculous, especially on an international flight. Just one more way to gouge customers. Especially as a 1K flyer, having to pay for entertainment is just a slap in the face."
Pros: "I've taken a number of airlines, but none as bad as United. I get bad weather, I wouldn't want to go up in a plane in a thunderstorm regardless of the circumstances....but I spent almost a day getting to my destination that should of only taken9 hours tops. Delay upon delay, arriving right when my next flight was leaving. Very rude staff, I saw an attendant yell at a mom and daughter like she was their mom. Non-apologetic to anyone. Their goal is to shove you in the plane and shove you out. Are they safe airline? Yes, they will get you to where you need to be...but not before they make your life hell. I don't normally do reviews on anything, but United still has me frustrated even a week later. I almost forgot, they did give $20 to eat. Do you know how expensive airport food is?"
Pros: "The customer service was very professional and collaborative."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great. Both going and return were so on time, it was amazing. On the way home the in flight entertainment was out for the duration of the flight and nobody in the crew really took the time to address it - thought that was a little odd. Thanks again!"
Pros: "Service was great, flight attendants are awesome. I did not have any inconveniences boarding or with my belongings."
Cons: "Food was extremely expensive. Snacks were so simple. Had to pay for entertainment. Also paid for my baggage, i thought it was included. It was a carry on and had to check that in, absurd."
Pros: "Went good. Arrived in Charlottesville 30 minutes early. No complaints."
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: "Thank you for making this connection available from charlottesville to dulles. It beat driving! Everyone was helpful"
Cons: "old plane and configuration in business"
Cons: "The flight was delayed in landing. I paid to watch tv which should be free on international flights... It use to be and they kept making PA announcements the entire flight. It was very very disruptive."
Cons: "I didn't like that my flight was delayed for almost three hours from Dulles to Charlottesville. Apparently, from speaking with friends in the area, United has a horrible reputation for getting anywhere on time. Why couldn't they have just given us ground transportation and let us drive to Charlottesville? It would have been quicker!"
Pros: "Appreciated that they didn't stick us in a 95 degree aircraft."
Cons: "Didn't like the 2 hour delay, but things happen."
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!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "The flight got delay because of that I had problems at customs and immigration"
Pros: "Nothing about this leg of my trip was likeable"
Cons: "The layover went from being 47 minutes to 4 hours had to changed gates only to sit 3 more hours after the first intial hour at the first gate and communication was not the greatest to say the least then when we finally did board we were filled to capacity they couldn't fit all the luggage we sat an additional 30 on the plane before take off... The experience for the last leg of my trip was more than enough to keep me from using United again, most unorganized company I've ever seen... Other customers were telling me that they have to fly United regularly for work and this wasn't an uncommon thing for them compared to other companies they use"
Cons: "The tv and movie did not work"
