Cons: "I came to the airport 11:30am asked to rebook for earlier flight which wasn’t possible unless 75$ charged. I decided to wait till 4:16pm departure that ended being 3:50 am the next day. Meanwhile it took several hours to receive water and pretzels, pizza finally came after 9 hr wait(which gave me heartburn). Ground crew disorganized feeding us excuses of weather (wx) which initially was a landing gear problem for first 1.5 hr delay then again WX and ATC not assigning a route(while other airlines departing no problem) then crew timed out then no plane & again waiting for crew...Seriously? What a management!!! Reading comments below this keeps repeating however this was about 13 hours delay. This company should quit!"

Pros: "Attentive, professional crew, clean plane, great service!"
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Delay in getting bag"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to some maintenance issues. Staff were friendly calm and helpful to the extent they could be with something out of their control. The company rerouted a different plane to take us since ours was going to be so late, turning a 2 1/2 hr delay into just a 1 hr delay. Boarding was super efficient, in flight service excellent. They comped us our headphones because of the delay, a nice touch. This is my 3rd great customer service experience with JB in as many months (the other 2 involved waiving charges to change flights, once gor me when I was suddenly ill, and for my cousin, when a changed circumstance made her need to travel on a different day, alone with 4 kids). Between Kayak and JetBlue app I got very frequent updates on flight status, but gate staff also were there and informed us in person."
Cons: "A bit of turbulence on take off , no fault of anyone except Mother Nature .. all in all a great flight !"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "DCA boarding crew were very cranky. Left a bad taste in my mouth. Never realized just how small these seats are until this flight, stuck in the middle of two men. Battle to use the armrests, someone kept passing wind and lots of turbulence. Paid full price for this miserable flight."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "My husband & I were in Row 5 & in last boarding group. When we got to our seats, all of the overhead bins were filled all the way back to Row 8. So, we put our suitcases up there. When we landed, we had to wait for everyone to get off the plane to be able to go back to those bins. And someone had already exited the plane with my husband’s suitcase. Their suitcase was left. We spent an hour with Suitcase Services, but could not find out who took my husband’s suitcase. (No ID inside theirs) I recommend that you board lower numbered rows first so that people in the back rows don’t take the front bins!"

Cons: "Boarding was from front to back and soooooo slow. The connection in Bogotá was impossible since it took almost 2 hours to go through immigration. What a nightmare. After missing our connection, the Avianca Special Services associate wasn’t rude and non-communicative, and preferred to text her friends instead of attending to us."
Pros: "Excelente atención del personal de vuelo. Gracias."
Cons: "La comida. Gracias."
Pros: "Cada ves que viajo en Avianca , estoy viendo y sintiendo un detrimento en la atención así como en la comodidad de los aviones.

Cons: "Podrían mejorar el sabor de la comida que sirven, ya que no es de las mejores."
Cons: "The Kayak/ Avianca site does not allow one to input TSA Pre info. Although I had printed myh boarding pass online ahead of time, i had to wait in a long long line at the check in counter to get an updated boarding pass with TSA Pre on it. Not happy!"

Pros: "It was hard to not laugh at the gate confusion, time confusion, and clear general incompetence of the thousands of airport staff."
Cons: "The flight was delayed so they put me in another flight. When I already had the confirmation, the people at the counters said I could not fly because the flight was oversold.

Stick to the sandwich and be sure to have extra mustard and mayo and option. They both are terribly dry. Very far from JetBlue-but nice airline and service."
Cons: "Read the first."
Pros: "Overall this is one of the best airlines I often travel with. Their cost is economic compared to the other airlines flying and their customer service attention is one of the best. They always have food and drinks available to people and obviously have a priority when it comes to children. Their seats in economy are somewhat spacious and international flights always have good entertainment with their touch screen. You can listen to music, watch movies and even TV shows without any extra cost."

Cons: "It would be nice to have vegetarian options and the entertainment options were down. This is no way a big deal. I just mention it as there are more and more people embracing vegetarianism so if you want to be on the front lines of customer care, that would certainly make you one of the top ones in that regard alone! Pura Vida! Dave"

Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "The crew were nice and friendly. The plane was new with lots of amenities"

Seems idiotic"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and airlkne system was down"
Pros: "Flight was great and crew was very nice as usual."
Cons: "When I got to Guatemala I was told I couldn't check in unless I had a ticket leaving Costa Rica. I have never had a problem with this in the past.

Cons: "Copa does not permit one to make a seat selection at the time of booking - the seats assigned to us upon checking werenot together and in the back of the plane. As Silver customer with United Airlines I would hope for a better choice or what then is the value of the Star Alliance? I likely won’t fly withCopa again. Also, they did not offer hot tea as a beverage selection."

Cons: "I went on the site and mentioned I was vegetarian, but I guess the 'snack' wasn't big enough to warrant a veggie option. I had to run from one flight to another, and my previous one only served breakfast, so it would have been really nice to have a veggie option. I put poor on entertainment because there was none, but it was a short flight, so not a big deal. Rest was great!"

Pros: "Quick flight with no delays"
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate after getting on the plane. While the crew was communicative it would have been better if we were alerted before boarding"
Pros: "Arrived early. Friendly pilot."
Cons: "Attendant did not offer snack choice."
Pros: "4 flights and all of them in middle uncomfortable seats. I requested aisle seats many times and counter agents were unhelpful and rude."
Cons: "Better seat options and more comfortable seats"
Pros: "Nice seats with plenty of leg room. Friendly crew. Smooth flight."
Pros: "People were friendly"
Cons: "Broke arm off wheelchair"
Cons: "This flight was delayed by almost 5 hours. While I understand there are some delays sometimes, this was the ONLY flight to Greensboro out of DCA, and the times kept changing throughout the day, even though the gate agents knew that the issue was that the crew was delayed. There should be backup crew available and when there are delays, the passengers should be kept informed. There should be other flight options available when this happens. I never received an apology from anyone I encountered throughout the process, and some personnel were rude even though I was polite."
Pros: "My flight was delayed and expected to delay further and the attendants put me on another flight to get there before my connecting flight."
Cons: "My bags never made it and when I arrived, I was told that one of my bags was still at my departure airport and the other wasn’t scanned."
Pros: "Pleasant service ; courteous team"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "Horribly bumpy the whole time, no drink service because it was so shaky"
Pros: "Everything except TSA, my daughter 14, had a precheck. TSA sent her through, and made me go in separate much slower lne. She was upset and scared, which upset me."
Pros: "Liked the crew. The flight was on time and went as expected. We are safe and happy so can’t get much better right?"
Cons: "Didn’t like the credit card advertising announcement over the intercom and then again by the crew. The lack of food and snack options was pretty sad but that’s par for the course nowadays. One of my pet peeves: People boarded with out verification of their boarding pass location. By the time we boarded, 90% of the plane was loaded and we were in the middle. Luckily that had no impact but annoying bc people are trying to get their overhead bins before they run out, which they did."
Pros: "We were 40 minutes delayed but received good communication and had an uneventful flight otherwise."
Pros: "My wife is hypoglycemic and requires food. The flight was so early that none of the terminal restaraunts were open, nor did the plain have food for any passengers accept first class. I've purchased a box on other flights, but this one did not provide an option for a box lunch or breakfast."
Cons: "There was no one at the ticket kiosk located by TSA and no sign that said they would be back or to go to another booth. After waiting 10 minutes I️ went upstairs and found a chaotic mass of people checking in at the actual open kiosk. The check in process was not clearly defined and even after spending 30 minutes checking a bag I️ still had to care my checked bag down to another TSA check line. In their boarding area there were minimal phone chargers. The plane was small and no leg room and a rigid uncomfortable seat. Also the flight was at night and they kept the cabin lights on. That was super frustrating to an exhausted traveler who was trying to sleep."
Pros: "Competent crew; flight arrived on time with my luggage."
Cons: "Plane was jammed full; so much so that even passengers like me, who paid to check one of my bags, still had to put my one carry-on under the seat in front of me instead of in an overhead compartment. I expected some legroom because I paid to check my bag. Unfortunately because of American Airlines I had next to no legroom. I'll be avoiding AA where possible on all of my future travels."
Cons: "Lost my luggage and flight delayed"
Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."
Pros: "Little"
Cons: "Mechanical issues, late late late, bad communication, no apologies or compensation for huge waste of time."
Pros: "I love the fact I've flown with American Airlines 4 times over the last month and have not had any issues, delays or even an unfriendly face no matter the time or airport!"
Cons: "Late late cancelled chaos in reassignment late late One agent threw up hands said I'm done and left with long line of passengers not yet reassigned Person behind me asked why didn't we take Delta?"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for 35 minutes without a single announcement as to why there was a delay."
Pros: "Appreciated the extra legroom and food and drink service, even on a short flight. Crew seemed very friendly."
Cons: "It was way too cold. We shouldn't all be bundling up in scarves and jackets. I've noticed that European airlines manage nut to freeze the passengers, so three must be a way to adjust the standard temperature on planes a but more."
Pros: "Food, OK legroom, complimentary wine & beer on a US carrier"
Cons: "Barely functioning ancient touchscreen system"
Pros: "Surprisingly the seats were not cramped as on other airplanesI have benn on"
Cons: "I wished there was no delay in Miami each way. Miami to Washington an overcrowded runway caused the delay"
Pros: "Good crew, everything efficient with no problems for getting from point A to point B."
Cons: "I really am starting to hate the CRJ-700. I dislike being packed into one with 50 of my closest friends I never knew."
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Pros: "Gate agent at DFW helped with a seat change so my wife and I could sit together--excellent seating in the exit row"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Both flights, to and from around had to go search for my baggage and on the return flight I even had to go to a different terminal. The service is unacceptable. I will never fly with AA again."
Pros: "The entertainment system was good. It took mind mind off the 4 delays that occurred with the flight."
Cons: "4 delays that occurred with the flight. 45 minutes to board. 30 min to leave the gate. 30 min to takeoff and 30 min to get to the gate when we landed."
Cons: "Cancelled flight last minute and I was put on another flight hours later; with a 1.5 hour delay too; no credit or voucher provided"
Pros: "The plane was new and the leg room was worth the extra $20."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment and the seat did not recline. I guess there are pros and cons in the exit row. I also had no choice but to buy the more expensive seat since all others were taken at check-in."
Pros: "Please put n/a as an option. There was no entertainment for a flight lasting a little over an hour."
Pros: "All of it"
Cons: "America Airlines...worst service and just a horrible experience"
Pros: "Flight was delayed but boarding at DCA was very efficient and quick"
Cons: "Flight attendants seemed bothered by something and weren't very nice. They looked/seemed tired. Cabin lights were on the whole time for a ~3 hour flight which began at 830pm."
Cons: "The delay. My flight was suppossed to depart at 7:25pm and left at 9:30"
Pros: "All aspects of flight were perfect. Couldn't ask for anything more."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. It was very comfort and the seats are very good."
Cons: "They changed the terminal for departure three times. Every time it changed al lot of people had to take the shuttle between terminals again. I don't think it was American Airlines fault, but the la guardian airport was not really customer friendly"
