There were over 6 flights assigned to the same baggage carousel. I think since we have to pay now for bags to be checked, I should have been compensated for NOT being able to take my bag onboard and for being forced to wait a very long time to retrieve it...exactly what I had hoped to avoid by carrying on."
Pros: "I enjoyed it :)"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew."
Pros: "Price of the ticket last minute one way from Boston to Anchorage for a family members surgery. Did a one way coming back even cheaper! Also missed connecting flight in Seattle and CS rep was kind enough to put me on a very booked flight 2 hours later. She waived the $200 change fee she could have charged. TY very much Brittany in Seattle!"

A miserably long time to be treated like cattle. Boarding process was a mad rush and mess; the boarding pass reader broke and the waiting area was a fraction of the size needed to hold the passengers waiting for the flight.

Cons: "There was a screaming Infant in the seat next to me that continued to scream for the first hour and a half. I requested earplugs, and wore them under my 34 dB noise isolating earmuffs (which were made for use at a gun range). The screaming was still loud enough to give me the worst headache that I've had in 4 years. Once this baby stopped, the baby in the row behind me began to scream and the one across the isle from him/her joined in. I would happily rebook with JetBlue if there was an option to not be seated within 5 rows of a toddler."

The was not a vegan option for dinner. I thought the pilot announced complimentary beverages; soft drinks, coffee, tea & alcohol. Perhaps I was mistaken or maybe he was. I like the seats (reclining back with the seat bottom moving forward) except the seat bottom is entirely too hard and was bad for my back. The hot towels are a welcome touch. The ride was smooth, the pilots did a very good job."

Cons: "My luggage is lost."

Since the armrest had two femal plugs in it then I assumed that the headphone required the two male plugs. That didn’t work. It wasn’t until much later that I tried the single plug from the headphone but that only worked when jiggling it around to make it connect properly. Would have preferred one of the new systems that allow you to stream a movie of your own choice to your own device."

Pros: "Que el avion era de 2 filas conn2 lugares"
Cons: "La comodidad.. Son muy estrechos..."
Cons: "There was a prolonged delay on arrival in Panama, as the gate was apparently in use. They set up stairs (on the runway?) and they transported us by bus to the airport. On the connecting flight to Guatemala, they began boarding an hour before departure, only to wait on a bus to be taken to the aircraft. Apparently the airline doesn't only double book seats on flights, but on Gates on arrival and departure as well? Aside from this particular gripe, the crews were pleasant and the airfare was a relative bargain, so all in all not a bad option IMO."

La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."
