Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "More options of things to view"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "It was overall good - 30 min delay. Can’t rate food or entertainment as I didn’t eat or use tv."
Pros: "Everything including the seating, in flight service and entertainment."
Pros: "On time. Jet Blue is the best."
Pros: "Crew was nice and the flight was fine"
Cons: "I was quite shocked that the seat I had originally been put in the head phone jack and The Wholearea where the channel changes was falling apart. I was able to switch seats due to flight being not full but that would be annoying. I also was weirded out that they did not ha e touch screens. In general the plane just seemed old and dirty to me."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable, very back of the plane but I had enough room. It was a pretty short (under two hour) flight so I slept, but overall good!"
Pros: "Good legroom"
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "The usual negatives with discount airlines- pay for seats, food, ear buds etc. free snacks available and excellent."
Pros: "First time to fly JetBlue! Very nice and all that leg room. Next travel JetBlue it is!"
Pros: "On Time and smooth."
Cons: "LIAT is an awful company that really makes the west indies look backwards. My flight was canceled by jetblue which rebooked my flight. the ticketing agency spent more than 12 hours trying to contact LIAT with no avail, 10 of those 12 hours I have been waiting for help. LIAT can't accomodate and rebook my flight for the funeral I am supposed to be going to tomorrow, they received payment for my flight and refuse to refund my money so that i can make other arrangements"
Pros: "I loved that the pilot on my first flight introduced himself and staff to the customers prior to loading the plane. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The leg-room! The leg room was a great surprise. No hassle with bags. Great snacks, wi-fi and movies for FREE! I was so tickled. I've never flown JetBlue. I thought it was just another low-cost airline that makes you pay for everything , what a nice surprise! I immediately gave you a shout-out on my facebook account. Best flight experience I've had in a long time. Thank you."
Pros: "Overall it was beautiful I will fly jet blue again and again lol"
Cons: "I wish a non Carb protein snack were offered."
Pros: "Boarding and gate location"
Cons: "I’m absolutely not a cold natured person, however I was freezing and extremely uncomfortable the entire flight."
Cons: "Tv’s did not work. Overall a good flight."
Pros: "Great snacks, nice plane staff."
Cons: "An electrical problem caused the plane to shut down. Rather than finding us new flights, we waited for many hours for the plane to be repaired. I was planning on making it to work by 9 this morning but the only folks who received alternate flights were the ones with connections :( in addition to this, the power shutting down on the plane was extremely unsettling. I have flown hundreds of times and have zero fear of flying. Today, I was terrified that the power would shut off mid-flight at any moment. I truly wish we'd been given another plane...i know that's tough. But something along those lines would have been better than stepping back on the one that shut down with all of us in it...after waiting for hours for it to be repaired. I do appreciate the $150 coupon though."
Pros: "Flight was on time Leg room was good"
Pros: "flights were on time, hotel was fine"
Cons: "small plane at end of trip was noisy, will bring ear plugs next time"
Pros: "Loved the size of the plane, the ease of the flight, the convenience of Nantucket airport."
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact I had to check my tiny bag, which means I have to retrieve it for the carousel. Aircraft needs better overhead storage. My bag weighed only 25 pounds."
Pros: "Quick boarding, plenty of snacks and beverages, and smooth flight. Very roomy compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Some of the in flight channels were unavailable."
Pros: "Staff was fine"
Cons: "4 hours flight with a $2 item for food no no"
Pros: "The light snack was adequate. My husband is a big guy and sometimes has issues flying due to size, found seats to be comfortable. Also, Jetblue gave us us a $50 credit for the inconvenience."
Cons: "We left half an hour late. Also, was stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours due to thunder and lightening storm with a screaming child on board. Howeverer, weather is not Jetblue's fault."
Pros: "Prior to our flight, our captain made a joke and everyone enjoyed it. The flight attendants were friendly. I enjoyed one of the snacks (Popcorners) and I have never had that as an option on any other flight before. (Although, food would have been a greater alternative.)"
Cons: "There was a little bit of turbulence, which is never fun. (However, the captain did set the expectation prior to each time.) I love when airplanes have personal tv monitors but I strongly dislike the fact that there was a charge for headphones, for the ability to listen. I did not buy any / have entertainment during my flight and CC appeared to be available, but did not work. If it did, I would have provided a higher rating."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff"
Cons: "Had to check my bag even tho there were a few spots still available."
Pros: "I have flown with JetBlue several times, I can say my flight experience has always been enjoyable and comfortable. Overall, I will use JetBlue regularly. Attendants have always been friendly, entertaining, and accomodating."
Pros: "checking in could not have been easier"
Cons: "I wanted them to bring more coffee around"
Cons: "Security was so backed up. I was not the only one who missed a flight, there were several people in line with me That also missed fights. They seemed very understaffed. When myself and other passengers asked them for help, they either ignore us or laughed."
Pros: "The gate crew was professional under difficult circumstances."
Cons: "Received seven flight change e-mails from both Kayak and JetBlue:1:27, Gate change, 1:43 2:45, 3:30, 4:00, 4:30, and finally left at 5:05, half an hour after original arrival time. All this, we Were told because off 15 min thunderstorm around 1:30. They did not have an airplane at the gate, and had to bring one over from international arrivals . Allegedly it took over three hours."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours and I was clear that the flight would be late so a notice beforehand would have helped me to stay at home and come to the airport later rather than sitting around the waiting area when all stores are closed already."
Cons: "Delaying the departure time"
Cons: "The seat was hard. I could feel the bolts under the cushion."
Pros: "Service was excellent and we actually had leg room!!"

Cons: "My trip info wasn't working after a reset."
Pros: "An agent changed my seat and tried to seat me far from the babies."
Cons: "There were just too many babies on the flight. It felt like the crying never ended."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and welcoming as well as efficient and professional. Snacks and drinks were offered despite the short flight."
Cons: "My headphones didn't work too well when I plugged them into my arm rest. I wanted to listen to the free Sirius radio offered during the flight but the sound was poor. It sounded as if I had the bass up too high but the volume was less than half way up, so I was only able to enjoy the music at a very low volume."
Cons: "they put my luggage on a different flight that is not arriving for 2 more days now i have to miss my appointment at the blue lagoon, i have literally been up for 24 hours to get here & now i have no clean clothes to change into and no bathing suit for my appointment at the blue lagoon that i booked in APRIL this is SO NOT COOL i came here to see this country & spend money here but now i will be heading straight home the second i do get MY luggage, also the flight attendants were very rude"
Pros: "Crew was great. Plane felt good and clean."
Cons: "My flight from Gainesville to Charlotte, we had to deplane down plane steps. I was told we would have jetway every flight. I have had hip replacement and steep steps very uncomfortable. Unable to deplane down them with both purse and small carryon. Someone always has to help me carry my carryon plus theirs as there is no provision for help from the airline. American seems to be only airline to do this, I will have to reconsider flying with you in the future."
Cons: "I think boarding from rear would facilitate faster boarding And eliminate people blocking Aisle ( standing in aisle and digging In their carryons preventing people From finding their seats further down the aisle. Also people with a connecting flight Pressed for time on their next flight Departure...Should be allowed to deplane first..so they don't miss their next flight."

Cons: "Flight leaving on time."
Pros: "The staff were polite and the pilot kept us on time. The flight wasn’t over booked and I was able to have an extra seat between myself and the other passenger in my row."

Pros: "It was on time. I liked the head rests on the seats."
Cons: "Many things Food Services Entertainment"

Cons: "Disgusting attitude from the flight attendant. She laughed at me when i told her i was transgender"

Pros: "All good"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the entertainment selections in the screen on the seat back were great, loved that there was more than one outlet for plugging in devices to charge, the sunset/sunrise lighting effect was really near"
Cons: "I honestly cannot come up with something that I did not lie"

Cons: "Airbus seems to have completely minimalized all legroom for persons over 6 feet."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient"
Cons: "The Flight was inconveniently delayed and all they offered us were some cheap snacks and soda. I was completely annoyed by the whole situation."
Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."
Pros: "Nice aircraft,"
Cons: "let down by unattentive staff and felt more like a budget airline with the fact that you have to pay for meals"
Cons: "Wait for Baggage and 20+ mins getting to gate after we landed"
Pros: "Sears are comfortable and the entertainment is great as well."
Cons: "Not much to dislike."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "That I arrived safely"
Cons: "I did not like the departure delay from 6:05 to about 9:50. Why did have to wait so long for a pilot to come, and then further wait for a flight attendant to arrive"
Pros: ". ."
Pros: "Flight was quick- onboard entertainment (streaming videos to your device) was cool...but the back of the plane is pretty bumpy and there was a lot of turbulance."
Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Not enough room between seats"
Pros: "Nice entertainment on new 737."
Cons: "But it is a 3-3 and there no room to sit cause we are hip to hip which means shoulders overlap shoulders. It is horrible. Avoid this plane at all costs. It's really bad. Pitch of leg room is barely OK but side to side they have sunk to a new low. The new plane doesn't blow any air. Terrible system. Really? That should be easy to fix."
Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and that was horrible but they delivered it to my hotel which was nice."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the plane was clean, and all flights left and landed as scheduled. Actually, they landed and unloaded is early! Would recommend if you don't mind paying extra $25 to check a bag."
Cons: "That no checked bags are included in the flight costs. They didn't hide this or surprise me, but just a dislike."
Pros: "Getting bumped to First Class"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."

Cons: "They changed my flight schedule. God my refund, but missed my business trip"
Cons: "Flight was canceled with no option to leave until the next day"
Cons: "Flight was changed without notice did NOT go to Charlotte instead flew Detroit to Dallas! To Tampa- a little out of the way. After we were checked in and ready to board I then got a call to notify me the flight was changed. Boarding was awful made me check small carry on when there was several open over-head compartments and several others were walking in with two + carry ons. How do you explain that? I will NEVER fly American Airlines again. The airplane from Dallas to Tampa was ancient, a little scary to even think it was still in the air. The air conditioning was minimal I could hear other passengers complaining it was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "The pilot got us home to Detroit!"
Cons: "Flight delay after flight delay after a terrible experience with Spirit and having to switch to your airline."
