Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew was courteous and gave constant updates in regards to any delays."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there was congestion prior to take off. Not sure there was anything that could’ve been done."

Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for over an hour. No charging station for electronics."

Pros: "Flight on time and smooth trip."

Cons: "2 hour delay"

Pros: "The seats were great! Loved the legroom!"
Cons: "There were a lot of old movies in the selection."

Pros: "An overall completely well done performance."
Cons: "Like to have reading materials. There was no :-/ magazine."

Cons: "Tvs weren’t working. Also was 30 minute dely which in turn made us rush and just make our connecting flight. But apparently our luggage wasn’t as lucky. It did not arrive in Orlando which made us wait another 2 hours for the plane to arrive with them. They arrived ruffled and my zipper was brok"

Pros: "Very accommodating very nice and attentive"
Cons: "Very cold on the plan , no place to charger your cellphone , not enough baggage room"

Pros: "The crew was professional. The seats were comfortable & spacious (for $40 extra per seat"
Cons: "We left two hours late. When we arrived we sat on the tarmac waiting for a gate for 20 minutes...and STILL counting..."

Pros: "The staff was very friendly and nice they made the flight Better"
Cons: "I could not recline my seat back pain and very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Clean and roomy"

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: "The timelines"

Pros: "Everything including the seating, in flight service and entertainment."
Cons: "NA"

Cons: "First flight was delayed two hours and I missed the second. Overall flight postponed of one day and they didn’t pay any expenses I had"

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!"

Cons: "the plane was so cold that many passengers complained and they didnt have blankets not did the turn the air down. I was so cold I couldnt find a comfortable poisiton and I was already wearing a jacket and long pants. Passengers should never be exposed to such drastically cold temperatures and ignored despite complaints."

Pros: "Good legroom"

Pros: "First time to fly JetBlue! Very nice and all that leg room. Next travel JetBlue it is!"

Pros: "On time departure."
Cons: "The crew did not bother to rearrange a bag in the overhead bin to accommodate my carry-on when there was a clear way to do that. His name was Matt. Between the choice of walking to the back of the plane searching for space and sending the bag to the baggage, I chose the latter and lost 15 minutes needlessly to retrieve the baggage. This guy needs to be fired!"

Pros: "On Time and smooth."

Pros: "Loved the live TV and spacious room between seats."
Cons: "I didn’t like the weather delay but that’s not JetBlue’s fault."

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."

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."

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: "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: "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: "On time, friendly staff"
Cons: "Had to check my bag even tho there were a few spots still available."

Pros: "Nothing at all. Worse experience in my life."
Cons: "My flight was delay about 8 times of not more I end up getting to my destinations 5 hours later. It was the worse experiencing of my life I would never ever in my life would flight JetBlue ever again."

Pros: "checking in could not have been easier"
Cons: "I wanted them to bring more coffee around"

Pros: "Nothing"
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."

Cons: "The seat was hard. I could feel the bolts under the cushion."

Pros: "Service was excellent and we actually had leg room!!"
Cons: "World‘s tiniest airplane toilet. I think munchkins built this for other munchkins. And I don’t mean big munchkins, but real real small munchkins."

Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Delayed due to yesterday’s storm by 2 hours. I wish the airlines could let people know a bit earlier so we don’t just sit in the airport."

Pros: "More space than any other economy seat. Free movies."
Cons: "I left my new neck pillow by accident. Filed the report same night. Never saw it again."

Cons: "Too many people with overhead baggage. It was zoo like."

Pros: "Nice crew, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Delayed flight, broken TV and terrible boarding process. Frozen toilet chemicals."

Cons: "Plane was delayed by about 4 hours"

Pros: "Accommodated a change in our flight due to weather seamlessly. Saved our Christmas. Thank you!"

Cons: "They missed checkin bags and told me to collect tomorrow"

Cons: "Two hours of delay, like always in that route"

Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Cons: "Seat did not recline and tv did not work. Very long ealk to taxi line"

Pros: "On time schedule"

Pros: "I like the boarding process which they board the end of the aircraft first (row 20-25) then move up (15-25) then up. I think it's very sufficient. The entertainment was good even though I thought more choices can be available"
Cons: "The seat is super uncomfortable... I couldn't sleep at all even though I was very tired...."

Pros: "Crew provided great service."
Cons: "My seat's TV screen had a terrible picture that got worse during the flight."

Pros: "ON TIME! TV Comfortable Seats Leg room (though I am by no means tall)"

Pros: "Servers in uniform."
Cons: "Lost luggage."

Cons: "foot rests in Saga class weren't very comfortable"

Pros: "Clean. Good service. Just way better than most domestic flights in recent memory."

Cons: "Took over an hour to check luggage in."

Pros: "Seating space was good, not cramped. Boarding was well organized."
Cons: "No snack, even pretzels, with beverage service."

Cons: "I STRONGLY encourage you to move away from offering EVERY passenger a small bottle of cold water when boarding! Please think about just how many plastic bottles are being needlessly created and then thrown away EVERY DAY! The water is apparently from some very good spring in Iceland... but think about all the plastic bottles that are going to was up on your shores EVERY DAY! It's a very bad trade-off if you ask me. (Which you did via this questionnaire.) And on a loosely related point... At Reykjavik airport (which was a packed chaotic mess the day we passed through) I could only find ONE fountain (downstairs by the toilets) where passengers could refill drinking bottles. I went down three times to fill our bottle and every time there was a line of at least 10 folks. Clearly people want to use refillable bottles but it sure makes it hard when there is only one location to do it. Throw in at least a half dozen of them around the airport please."

Pros: "Enjoyed travel videos about Iceland that you could watch before arriving."

Cons: "Sitting in row 33, couldn't recline seat and to close to rest room."

Cons: "Would like more movie options"

Pros: "All OK"
Cons: "All just OK"

Pros: "Nothing, every single (of my 4) flights was late"
Cons: "Everything,"

Pros: "Pleasant service, new comfortable aircraft."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible boarding, no service or attendance, unprofessional and unfriendly attitude. I arrived 3 hours before departure and had to stand in lines that were not clearly defined for 2 and a half hours. Everybody complained. Even the luggage band when I checked my bag was broken. Nobody came to assist the passengers"

Pros: "the price"
Cons: "Head rests are uncomfortable. The Reyjiacik airport is crazy how everything leaves around the same time, so its super crowded! Didn't pick up trash often enough."

Pros: "The airline people were kind."
Cons: "Not knowing about the smaller carry on standard size. I was expecting to see the same size but did not."

Pros: "flights were on time service was good"
Cons: "would rather not stop en route"

Cons: "They dont offer a meal for free."

Cons: "The baggage took over an hour to come out. It was 11:30pm and we needed to pick up our rental car and still drive to our apartment in Reykjavik. We arrived at the apartment at 2:30am and had to leave by 9:00am to go to the Blue Lagoon. Wishing the baggage had come out much faster."

Cons: "Lost luggage, emailed, but no response, four days later after multiple attempts the baggage company called to deliver bags to London address as we landed in Paris. There was no contact number and no email response Horrible service without a care. Ruined a European vacation"

Cons: "crying baby"

Cons: "Boarding was very unorganized and was complicated by a transport bus that didn't know when to leave. Airport was having baggage belt issues but plane preparation wasn't started until we finally got to the plane. This put the plane 1 hour behind schedule and caused an even further mess on the connecting flights."

Cons: "A meal wasn't provided, as it should've had been."

Cons: "Almost two hours late leaving MSP.Luggage did not get to London until two days after we did."

Pros: "Boarding in Boston was efficient and orderly."

Pros: "Everything...smaller planes, fewer people, quick loading, unloading, small Reykjavik airport equals less of a layover. I will always try Icelandair on my quite frequent UK trips I even like safety video!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Connections in rekjavik were delayed both to and from Paris. The airport is not designed to handle the multiple dealys"

Cons: "Layover times are very short and other flights arriving and departing at same time delay the time flights actually leave."

Pros: "The people that work for Iceland Air were very friendly and helpful. Our trip to Reykjavik and onto Paris was great. We would fly with Iceland Air again."
