Very hair raising ride for me - got in at 2:30 am with another hour to drive home - and I lost a LOT of confidence which I have always had in Jet Blue. I hope this is not the future we can expect with you"

Pros: "How easy it was to board"

Cons: "When I scanned my boarding pass the Jetblue staff member told me my carry on was too big and had to be checked. This was puzzling to me because I travel often and do not have a problem with that bag. As I was sitting on the plane I saw everyone's bag's were bigger especially the man next to me. His was significantly larger and he had a large duffle bag between his legs causing him to manspread into my area. and yet i was told "make sure your purse is under the seat" seriously?! What about his giant duffle bag and huge carry on roller?!"

Pros: "The only good things about this flight were: - The crew at the gate were very friendly and attentive - We arrived safely without incident"
Cons: "We were delayed 2 times before boarding. We were delayed 1 more time while on the plane. The pilot told us there was equipment trouble that had been fixed, but there was paperwork to fill out and it would only be a few minutes...and then radio silence for 30 minutes before pulling back. The flight attendants rushed through the pre-flight announcents and I could only understand about 60% of it due to speed, volume and accent. Despite asking me for my drink order, it never came...and I only heard a few soda cans pop open at all. Did they just decide not to serve us? She even gave me a napkin for it. Luckily when they put the snack basket in front of me, there was a tiny bottle of water, which I grabbed...little did I know, that was all I would get. The flight attendants were just tapping in the back of the plane the rest of the flight. They didn’t even bother collecting garbage until we were on final approach. They also never did the normal checks before landing."

Cons: "I almost lost my international connection, had to pay double to get my destination on time"

Pros: "The crew was very attentive"
Cons: "The social distancing was not followed and the seats were not very big so I had a person sitting darn near on top of me. Fortunately the guy next to me asked to move but until that point the crew did not really care."

Cons: "The crew was forced to stay seated the entire flight. They conversed very loudly the entire flight. It was very disruptive."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crewe members were great."

Cons: "Seat was old and killed my back. Paid for a comfort plus seat, but from what I could tell it was no different that economy. Still had to gate check my single carry on, no entertainment system, no in flight texting. I felt ripped off"

Pros: "The movies kept my daughter busy."

Cons: "Aiirlines always want to try and chargel extra money for everything. If you purchase tickets back in February and still can't sit with your significant other that's a problem to me."

Cons: "The seat was very uncomfortable"

Pros: "The cree"
Cons: "The stupid boarding pricesd"

Pros: "Flight was fine. No real complaints other than a talkative neighbor when I wanted to sleep."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything fuckin sucks"

Pros: "Leg room and seats are very tight and I'm a small person."
Cons: "Coach class is very crowded."

Pros: "Beautiful new plane with large overhead storage, comforable seats and moveable aisle armrest."

Pros: "Boarding was quick, gate agent upgraded my middle seat to an exit row window for free (or so I thought), decent movie options"
Cons: "Some of the crew seemed a bit grumpy, was not given the seat I was told I got, not much leg room in economy, was given wrong meal, first meal was taken away without being asked, second meal was stale (french toast), flight was a bit warm, bathrooms not stocked"

Pros: "I purchased round trip tickets to Cancun Mexico for under $400. And I received 1st class upgrades both ways. I could not be happier with my travel."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Our Delta plane was brand spanking new. Everything worked and the inflight entertainment system was fantastic with many movies to choose from, free headphones, games, tv shows, etc. The crew was polite and the seating at least as comfortable as expected for a 4 hour flight."
Cons: "The restrooms in the rear of the plane were remarkably small, even by airline standards. I'm a somewhat larger person and I fit, but I know a lot of people who would literally not be able to fit on the toilet without touching both of the sidewalls or risk getting stuck in there. The boarding process at San Jose Del Cabo was the most ridiculous setup I've ever experienced. There were numerous flights boarding out of the same gates and at least 3 or 4 lines for different destinations forming on a ramp just outside the gates. There were guys with signs trying to herd people into the correct lines and then loading the people onto buses which took you out to the planes. The planes were loading from both the front and rear doors and people were getting tangled up inside because of the haphazard loading process. Very easy for a person to end up on an incorrect plane!!"

Pros: "Snacks & beverages on a 1 hour flight. Very nice crew"
Cons: "Older plane, no entertainment"

Pros: "What an easy flight. Run very well!"
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit tired, but it’s the season"

Cons: "WiFi doesn’t work."

Pros: "Boarding is easy as always, I like Delta's system."

Cons: "Barking dogs. 4 around us! Middle seat."

Cons: "The tsa is worthless"

Cons: "Kids yelling"

Pros: "The flight left on time and landed earlier than anticipated"
Cons: "The seats were narrow and very upright"

Cons: "When I was transferred to Delta's website to book, the date was reset to 6 months in the future. It happened to be the same Monday the 26th so that's why I didn't notice. Delta refused to refund my money. This was a terrible experience and I plan not to use Kayak or Delta again!"

Pros: "Smooth"
Cons: "Delayed because the airline misschdduled the pilots!! We had to wait for pilots to come to the plane... while one the plane"

Pros: "Staff was friendly, and we got there safely"
Cons: "Really wished we had tv's like we had on our flight to SLC. It really helps with those who have anxiety to distract their minds. Wifi is expensive therefore I chose not to use it"

Pros: "The flight itself was fairly quick."
Cons: "We were late by 4hours and they kept changing the times. I wish they would have set it to one time like the other airlines. The seating is uncomfortable and there was no entertainment."

Cons: "I didn't have an assigned seat though I booked months in advance."

Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"

Cons: "Small plane, kept hitting my head on overhead bins"

Cons: "Delayed taking off by 35 mins because of onload slowness and issues. Resulted in landing late in seattle and missed the last transportation option home for the night. Should have had 1.5 hours to make my shuttle. Instead got stuck in my destination airport for the night."

Pros: "Nothing. This was the worst flight I’ve ever been on."
Cons: "Pretty much everything. The flight was delayed for mechanical reasons. Then they boarded us and we sat for 3 hours on the tarmac because one of the air conditioning packs was broken. When we finally arrived, I found out my bag was lost. The worst flight of my life."

Pros: "on-time, courteous flight staff"

Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."

Pros: "For me, a flight is “excellent” anymore if it’s on time and no one gets booted off the plane. Both flights were early!"
Cons: "Didn’t look he the free snacks."

Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "Checking in, the counter agent first told us we would need a visa to go to the USA. We are American citizens. Then she insisted that we buy checked bag allowance even though our tickets already included checked bags. We had already flown the 1st leg with checked baggage, why would we purchase tickets with no baggage allowance coming home?! The stroller we gate checked was left at the end of the oversized baggage carousel because of the ground crew not wanting to unload gate checked items. I will never EVER fly an AA codeshare flight."

Pros: "Unlike previous AA flights, the process was smooth everywhere it mattered. Attendants and crew were friendly, service was prompt, flight was smooth."

Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"

Pros: "Delays, delays, delays. An initial delay of 1.5 hours due to a switched plane. Then they needed mechanics to check out a bird hit to the plane. That took another 3 hours to happen. And they boarded us first, then found the issue, deplaned us, had a gate switch and then the wait. Very frustrating! Once on board, everything went smoothly as it typically does."
Cons: "The long delay"

Pros: "efficiency of terminal and flight changes at Dallas-Fort-Worth excellent. valet service and complimentary checked standard carry-on bag."
Cons: "Didn't know about close connections and terminal changes until printing boarding passes. Snack offerings are minimal one almost all airlines for regular fares. a tiny wafer cookie or about 5 mini-pretzels are not very impressive. I wold much prefer peanuts to pretzels--an option would be good. The gate of outgoing flight to Bloomington kept changing on phone m messaging shortly before takeoff , about 6 gate changes in 10 minutes. Confusing!"

Pros: "Mechanical issues caused a 75 minute delay in taking off."
Cons: "Several delays"

Cons: "Movies selection"

Pros: "Boarding was fast and smooth. The flight was great, seat was comfortable."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"

Cons: "Boarding started almost an hour late but the status never went to delayed (they just said it was on time but kept pushing the boarding time back). Arrived in CLT with only 20 min before the next flight departure."

Pros: "Fit and finish of cabin interior was nice."
Cons: "I REALLY wish this flight had drop down footrests in coach. The video demonstration advises passengers to put up foot rests and tray tables upon approach. I wish there had been a foot rest - my back was killing me due to the inability to lift my knees and feet to take the pressure off my lower back."

Cons: "Had a passenger behind us that was coughing the whole flight with what we think was a cold and now we are both sick with colds."

Pros: "Traveling with friends"
Cons: "Add on charges!"

Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "seat more comfortable than most airlines"

Cons: "... and they charge a penalty if you go to their counter first without going first to the check-in kiosk? Cheaper, sure, but totally lacks class"

Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "Expensive bag check fees of $52 across the board, even though signs listed a variable scale based on weight that would have been cheaper. Apparently that's only available if you check in early and weigh your bags yourself or something, IDK..."

Pros: "If your looking for a cheap affordable means of flying then spirit is the perfect option."
Cons: "Spirit does not have many options per day, on average only one or two to each destination so your options are limited. They do not give you the ability to have your boarding pass emailed to you, you can only access it directly from their website. And your almost guaranteed to arrive at your destination later than expected because their flights are so often delayed."
