Pros: "WiFi worked better than most flights I’ve been on"
Cons: "Airline allowed people to bring way too many carry on’s aboard there was no room left for individuals that only brought one. Restrooms were horrible. Flight was the coldest I’ve ever experienced."

Cons: "Nothing to eat! By the time I ordered at the back of the plane there wasn’t any food left except one cheese plate. Very disappointed as I wanted the Asian salad and there were none. Need more selections and more food onboard. Some free peanuts would be nice."

Cons: "Better coffee!"

Pros: "Fast boarding, nice crew, good flight!"

Cons: "crew should be better and flight should be on time"

Pros: "Nice crew, intermittent information by crew, Plane ended up leaving ontime despite being delayed initially"
Cons: "Had to go outside via ramps onto tarmac to take a bus to the plane which involved waiting on bus for 25/30 minutes before it moved! Then off bus and up ramp onto plane - not most comfortable process! So it wouldve been better simply to board plane at the gate, and no delay- plane initially delayed"

Pros: "Comfortable seats and good entertainment choices."

Cons: "No headphones provided for inflight entertainment. I have an iPhone 8 so I only have blue tooth headphones and couldn’t watch the movies displayed."

Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "The Flight Itself Is Excellent!!!!"
Cons: "The Flight Attendant Service Needs Improvement Meaning "1st Class", And Certain "Types Of People" Are Not The Only Passengers On The Plane!!!! Meaning I Had Ordered Something To Drink, And It Took Them An Hour, And I Had To Page, And Remind Them Of My Order. Also, On Long Flights Like This "Food Should Be Served At No Additional Charge" Seriously!!!! That Is All!!!!"

Pros: "Check in, quick boarding"
Cons: "First class food is terrible, first class seats are disgusting, dirty and broken. The Virgin planes are showing their age. No one is cleaning or repairing anything. The service is not what it used to be. They removed live TV and the movie selection is at least a year old. Sad sad state of affairs. Virgin was my favorite airline."

Pros: "Great flight! We didn't die and arrived on time."
Cons: "Alaska lost my bag! They found it later, but it took an hour of confusion at the end of a long trip."

Pros: "I liked the price of my ticket. I liked the app. I felt like the plane was clean and very comfortable."
Cons: "I didn’t like that both my flights were over booked so boarding took a lot longer then I expected. I didn’t like that the on board ordering system offers free earbuds, yet the flight attendant said they did not have any. When I boarded my return fligh, the flight attendant that was supposed to be creating us was scrolling through her phone didn’t even make eye contact. When I was getting off of the plane. That same flight attendant was sitting in a first class seat scrolling through her phone again, she did look up to thank us though. Overall the plane was nice, but the I wasn’t disappointed with the flight attendants service"

Cons: "There were no headphones available on the flight, the seatbelt signs were half working, half not, and when I tried to use my own headphones- the jack in my seat was not operable. On the Alaska flight on the way out, the seat was broken and I couldn’t recline for the whole 7 hour flight. It just seems as though there is a repair issue with Alaska/virgin airplanes."

Cons: "When I came into la my seat was changed without my notice and I was placed in the emergency exit. The staff at the gate told me I was upgraded which was a total lie. I was uncomfortable the whole ride when that should not have happened being that I picked my seat over 3 months ago."

Cons: "No USB port to fit my ear buds so 6 hours with no audio/video To cold and was declined any blanket froze!!! Unfriendly stewardess both directions who didn’t care to collect trash:SMILE or care I was cold with no movie"

Pros: "I liked that the flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "I hated sitting right next to the bathrooms. I didn't like the bait and switch of riding Virgin rather then Alaska. I didn't like that you couldn't buy headphones for the entertainment and that there were no games for kids to play as a part of the inflight menu. I hated that only regular drinks were free with no free snacks. Also the inflight crew wasn't that friendly or attentive. I hated the inflight safety video as this huge musical number."

Cons: "One 4 pounce cup of cranberry apple on a 6 hour flight"

Pros: "Plane was nice, crew was fine. Slept most of the time, so not much to say."
Cons: "They screwed up my luggage causing me to miss my flight and wait 6 hours for the next one."

Cons: "You had to pay for headphones, so I had to pull down my hand luggage mane sidt thru all my belongings to find headphones. That was annoying. Wish there were snacks and that I didn’t have to pay $25 to bring my luggage."

Pros: "Ticket kiosk is easy to use Nice to be offered beverage on flight"
Cons: "Flight attendants are not as friendly"

Cons: "Despite the delay of almost 3 hours (which we were informed much earlier than getting to the airport at) the plane was 40% empty so can’t complain at the end of the day"

Cons: "I don’t like the fact that Jet Blue has nobody to help with getting your boarding pass and bag tags .. for seniors like myself who sometimes need digital Aylin .. no Personnel to help and if itvwasn’t For a delightful savvy young woman whom I asked for help I’d still be at that kiosk when I travelled Alaska sirlinescthey had people there to assist you"

Pros: "I always shop on kayak. It's reliable because of the consistant results."

Pros: "My upgrade"

Pros: "How you can get up and grab your own snack instead of keep asking for one."
Cons: "I had to ride a 6hr flight with no TV or music that didn’t work the whole flight. I told the flight attendant three times who wasn’t much helped or felt it wasn’t important enough. I eventually got pissed and left it alone."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive, boarding was effortless on a full flight; appreciated free snack and no push back when I wanted two."
Cons: "I resent the fact that I have to pay for the earbuds to watch “free” movies. That should be complimentary since I am sure very few people would need it due to wide spread personal use of those. For some of us, older, we do not necessarily walk around with “hip”earbuds."

Cons: "Passengers had to pay for headset"

Pros: "The free WiFi and snacks will totally make me a repeat customer’ great flight attendants and good communication."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment was great! Great selection of movies!"
Cons: "The earbuds are terrible, I personally don't do well with that style - i would do research to see what the most universal type head phones are used because these were the worst. Also the control to my entertainment was on the right side, where the middle person kept changing my channels and volume. I would have liked for it to be on maybe the left side where no one else could touch it. (I sat at a window seat) The guy next to me fell asleep and so it was super hard to get to my controller (although there is one on the computer, he was still messing with it with his elbow)."

Cons: "2 hour delay and gate changes were ridiculous"

Pros: "I like only 1 thing wi - fi is working good."
Cons: "I don’t like anything. It’s a worse airline ever i take I would like to suggest never ever fly with jet blue . I go through so many problems so rude employees working at help desk . Especially steven he said he is supervisor then he says he is only shift leader instead of helping he just talking so mean guy . This is really a big story i try to put in small words ...i fly with them on march 2nd LAX to JFK my finale destination is amritsar in India because of their fault i miss my next flight . The lady help me in morning she is very mean i wanna talk to supervisor she say I’m supervisor but she is only shift leader.i forgot her name . When steven told me he is supervisor i was like"

Pros: "in plane travel comfort"
Cons: "Airport luggage & kiosk check in: no staff help. TSA was too long. Arrived 1.5 hrs before flight, arrived at gate 5 minutes before gate closed."

Cons: "Everything was smooth, great flight, great entertainment, but it took over an hour for our bags to arrive at our baggage claim."

Pros: "First time flying JeBlue and loved it! Price was great. Plane was nice - movies etc."

Cons: "The crew was either rushed, tired or something...not as friendly and that made for a long trip."

Pros: "Leg room because I sat next to the emergency exit"
Cons: "Everything except leg room. First, your team never offered beverages. When I asked them about it, they said that they didn't want to wake anyone ... really? Like the whole plane? It's a red eye flight ... I'm sure most would take at least a water. Meanwhile First Class was served every two minutes for everything they wanted ... and us folks that make up the rest of the plane ... we don't count? So, everyone basically went to the fridge to get drinks. Water wasn't even offered ... huh? Also, your seats were ridiculously crammed ... extremely uncomfortable. Other than that, I'm glad we made it to New York."

Cons: "Security line at JFK is awful. They only let expedited boarders through, and didn't process other lines for 30 minutes. Many people missed their flights. Even worse, a free screener was standing there, but didn't want to work. Only after many people complained did he start processing our line. And then the TVs on our airplane were broken."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Attitude from staff"

Pros: "Staff!"
Cons: "Food options Sound for movies is usually a problem"

Pros: "Boarding was delayed but we arrived on time. I always enjoy flying JetBlue and intend to do so in the future."
Cons: "I was expecting the same choice of movies that I had seen on the westbound trip, so I could finish one that I had started. I'll have to find it elsewhere. Chocolate chip cookies were recalled. ????"

Pros: "Never again will jet blue get a penny from me - worst flights ever !!!!!"

Pros: "Efficiency"
Cons: "No free headsets"

Pros: "Everything was perfect!!"

Pros: "Great boarding great snacks great entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The ambient lighting used throughout the cabin was too bright and stimulating to let me fall asleep in an overnight flight, should have been dimmed more or turned off. The seats did not help the comfort levels either, should have been able to recline a tad bid more. The carry-on-bag situation is getting out of control, you should crack down on people who bring too many bags or oversized bags that should be checked in instead."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "The seats in my row were filthy. Not only was there food on the seats but there was crusted food on the pull down tray. When this was brought to Peter's (the steward's) attention he handed me a napkin and water to clean it myself. Absolutely unacceptable. I don't think I'll be flying JetBlue again."

Cons: "more food maybe?"

Pros: "We had missed the bag check-in deadline by 2 minutes and were put on another flight that had a connection because everything else was booked. When it was time to check-in, we explained the situation to the representative and he was extremely friendly and helpful. He was able to put us on the next direct flight which got us in quicker and avoided the delay. We were very appreciative of his help and how nice the staff was."

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Entertainment system malfunctioned constantly"

Pros: "Seating and serving, both very good"
Cons: "I couln't get my view on for movies, since there was (I presume) a charge for the earphones. Won't know now what happened to Jean Grey. Maybe offer a small book cart as an alternative entertainment for us cheapskates? do-de-do..."

Pros: "Quiet economy service let me sleep on the redeye."

Pros: "Delta is always fabulous! Their crew is so helpful!"

Pros: "Friendly and cheerful!"

Pros: "Free Tillamook snacks that were filling, upgraded snacks"

Pros: "- flying business was great. Comfortable chairs that lay flat. - entertainment options are amazing. Worthy of any international flight."

Cons: "I disliked the fact that their weren’t any charging station, I wasn’t able to to charge my telephone device previously but I thought I would be okay sonce air crafts that I have boarded have out lets to charge devices, was an inconviencesince I wasn’t anle to contact family. Also there was complementary movies to watch but there werent any head phones that were given, united aire lines provided us with head phones for entertainment."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "The crew do not know precisely their proceedings. This cost me alot of money, effort, and time."

Pros: "Great service!"

Pros: "Great service!"

Cons: "The female flight attendant needs an attitude adjustment. She behaved as though she was doing a favor"

Cons: "average food. poor corrdination for the connection transfer"

Cons: "Basic economy has way too many restrictions"

Pros: "Friendly, helpful, kind, confident and easy going flight attendants really made this flight stand out. The seats in economy were comfy and new; the touch screen Tvs were updated and functioned properly. The snacks were healthier. Way to go, Delta! Keep it up!"

Pros: "Premium boarding breakfast sandwich pretty good"
Cons: "My screen stopped working in the middle of an episode."

Cons: "My row didn't have sound on our entertainment system. I was able to move to another seat and they did compensate the couple that was next tho new with beverages and miles to their account."

Pros: "Best flight so far. Thanks"
Cons: "Bumped from original seat. But that was ok."

Pros: "The gate attendants were extremely helpful in boarding this flight despite delays at the destination. They accommodated everyone and did their best to deliver efficiency."
Cons: "There were select in-flight crewembera that not only spoke rudely to passengers but also openly discriminated against passengers on board. They openly stated "It's always easier up front, isn't it?" They were openly rude and impatient with a group of passengers who clearly needed their interpretor and refused to provide any guidance when they group was nervous about missing their connection due to the delayed flight (they did actually miss their connection and were left to "look at the boards outside.") I personally experienced direct rudeness that was simply beyond what should be considered acceptable. A gentleman attendant was pouring ice into his bucket and due to a leak in the bag, she was pouring water all over my entire jacket sitting on my lap. Stunned by this, I loudly asked him to please stop and proceeded to ask for napkins. His response was "it's just water, it's not a big deal." I responded to say, "it's actually on my enitre jacket and I need to check that it didn't hit my laptop in my bag" and the response was "it's just water...you don't need to yell at me." I genuinely was frustrted but by no means was yelling. I was handed napkins and when he finally saw just how much water he had poured onto my jacket (the entire half of the jacket was soaked)...the response from the attendant was "Oh, now that I see how much it is...I actually am sorry." Implying..he previously actually wasn't sorry at all. I say with FULL certainty that had I been sitting "up front" or in first class...the apology would have been immediate and freely offered and would not have come with a degree measurement of damages. I am a loyal Delta flyer and more and more so I'm finding it hard to stay loyal to an airline with staff that continues to disappoint and concurrently creates such difficulties throughout the booking process."

Pros: "They did fly.... finally"
Cons: "Missed connection to Bangor. Had to overnight in NYC. Substituted smaller plane for this transcontinental flight."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable. Loved that we all had our own TV's with free movies available. And loved that we were all served free food."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Delta flight attendants were much more pleasant and friendly than any other airlines. They made my red-eye flight comfortable."
Cons: "Trying to board was a mess. It was disorganised and inefficient."

Pros: "Worst experience ever."
Cons: "While my experience with Virgin Australia was good, I will not book with them due to the co-share with Delta Airlines. I missed my connecting flight from LAX to JFK due to additional security screening. As such I was advised to head to the Delta terminal to be booked onto the next available flight to NYC. After waiting over an hour in line to be seen by a staff member, I was told that they couldn't change my ticket as it was a Virgin flight. The same staff member didn't seem to even understand the concept of 'co-share', and also told me that because I booked through Kayak and not Delta that they could not help me. This makes me think that booking through a third party is a risky move. I was told there was absolutely nothing she could do, and that I would have go to a Virgin Australia Counter. This involved taking all of my luggage from Terminal 5 - all the way to Terminal 3. I was assisted by Virgin Australia, where they apologized for my experience, and confirmed that it was Delta's responsibility (and that they were capable) of rebooking my flight. Virgin booked me onto a later flight, but I still had to walk back to Terminal 5 (Delta) to give them my checked luggage. I was once again told that I didn't have the right ticket (details listed Virgin and Delta flight number - so this was way too confusing for them). Finally they printed my a boarding card and took my bags. I then ran through security and to gate in time for my flight. Flight was fully booked, due to a many people no doubt experiencing the same thing. Food was awful. Was a big step down from the Virgin flight in every aspect. There was not a single Delta Staff member who would even try to understand or be helpful. I will never fly with Delta again."

Cons: "See above airport connection disaster...."

Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Crew spent 90% of time on half dozen rows of comfort and virtually ignored the rest Entertainment screen - touch screen was partially non responsive, way to small, and lack choices. Should have option to buy movies, etc. Not just delta, but I don't know why boarding is not done from the back of the plane instead of zone - at least for coach. I think it would be faster."

Pros: "What they offer is OK."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"

Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"

Pros: "The prior flight arrived late and then due to what appeared to be some mechanical issue, the plane was towed into the gate at about the time we were due to board. I mention this only because this was the only glitch during the rest of the flight. Loved the wide variety of entertainment available inflight, the AC outlets on EVERY row, and though I didn't need it this time, the availability of Wi-Fi Internet is appreciated. And though we left 40 minutes late, we made up part of the time and arrived only 20 min later than scheduled. Bravo Delta! I'll have to check out your version of Mileage Plus."
Cons: "I couldn't understand the gate agent's announcements due to language issue but most of all competing announcements from the gate behind me. One of the flight attendents was more bossy I felt than necessary. She told me not to put my backpack in the overhead bin, even though there was enough space and the back 3rd of the aircraft was half empty (I was in the last loading zone so there weren't many more people after me)."

Pros: "Blankets"

Pros: "All restroom floors were wet. I have seen this in others 767's too. Is this a 767 phenomenon"

Cons: "Reasonable price"

Pros: "great"

Pros: "Stewards"

Pros: "loved the cookies!"
Cons: "Wish there were more legroom on those little planes."

Pros: "I upgraded for more legroom (still in coach), which also included earlier boarding. Unfortunately that does not guarantee odifect verhead storage will be available. The meal and "free" movies were a nice surprise. Maybe I overlooked mention that those were included in the upgrade, but I appreciated it. I do wish I had known meal was included otherwise I would not have eaten at the terminal. Ice cream was also a nice touch. Actually, the food is really good."
Cons: "Paid extra for legroom, which was sufficient. The seats however were still far too narrow. The passenger next to me were in a constant battle for the armrest. I didn't really feel comfortable in that respect."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "That we got there on time. And landed safely."
Cons: "Honestly I have no complaints but they could at least serve something for a 6 hour flight"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, Meal was delicious, crew was friendly"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The boarding process and its ease"
Cons: "The Wi-Fi was not free and quite expensive. The space between seats was too narrow for my legs resulting in an uncomfortable journey. The entertainment was dated and not varied enough. The food was borderline unsavoury. The wines were cheap... Not an airline I would recommend to anyone."

Pros: "Surprisingly enough leg room for me, even though im 6 foot 6in. Staff on plane were very very nice."

Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Terminal 5 at LAX is a mess."

Pros: "The check in agent was a complete &$@?(. I had luggage and asked if I there was a counter I could just go to. I was told no. After figuring out self check in at 5 am I had to tag my own bags then see her at the counter and reshow all my id etc. it would have been much easier to skip the self check in as o has asked. But that’s what I get for getting an American Airlines codeshare."
Cons: "American Airlines service was horrible, both on the ground and in the air."

Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and friendly, the plane was clean and food was ok"
Cons: "Having to stand in line with a 2 year old while rude passengers rush to board not caring about anyone or anything bit getting to their seat. What happened to letting customers with small children board first"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, attentive staff"
Cons: "More non dairy food obtions"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly and attentive."

Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid for 2 seats with extra legroom to find out that the entire plane was extra legroom. The flight attendants weren't friendly at all. I have had nothing but trouble with American for this past trip. From losing my reservation to this, it has been a nightmare. I hope I never have to fly them again, I tried complaining to customer service. You can't call them ; only email them. I could go on and on.
