Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"Flight was supposed to go at 8:50PM. Last minute it got delayed until 5:30AM"
"No functioning tv. No food (snacks aren’t food). Flight was under 40 minutes. Job done!"
"Everything was orderly and easy going. Was worried reading about all the bad behaved passengers, but crew was kind but stern in their warnings. Anyway, all was as I had hoped."
"Jetblue's $65 charge for carry on bags is robbery. There was plenty of space on the plane for carry on bags."
"It was a redeye flight, so there's not much that can be done to make it "better" per se. The crew is respectful of passengers trying to sleep, the lights remain low and announcements to a minimum. The amount of in-flight entertainment and charging ports available at each seat means I can easily find something to watch/listen to until I fall asleep, and my devices will be charged and ready to go when I reach my destination in the morning!"
"Everything was fine"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating"
Pros: "I absolutely love JetBlue! It’s spacious, reliable, and best of all the new carbon neutral planes in the US are wonderful!"

Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Like jet blue"
Pros: "That I was able to get home."
Cons: "Delayed flight, missed my shuttle home and crew lost control of people."
Pros: "Crew was very hospitable; seat was comfortable; good in seat entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding was a little slow; late takeoff"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Very small tray table space. Carry on fee should have been easier to see during purchase. If I'd noticed, I would have planned differently."
Pros: "Friendly attendant helped me get seats with my daughter together. Everyone was very nice and polite."
Cons: "Everything was great for this trip"
Pros: "I slept reasonably well."
Cons: "More comfortable seats/more leg room."
Pros: "On time, smooth, appreciated coffee and snacks. Quick de-plane. Very pleasant personnel."
Pros: "I like the fact that the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Seats were comfortable but poor condition (old). WiFi was nice as well."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice and then jump back to the original time according to the JetBlue app. I had also called the airport I was departing from, and they're updated system said it was the original time, as well. Then they offered 2 wave the fees for cancellation or change of itinerary. So I went to go do that for the next day, because my flight wouldn't land in till 3 in the morning. But right as i clicked the confirm button, it said that offer was no longer eligible. And then it got changed again to the second alert which was 11:40 something, for departure. I understand that there was a severe thunderstorm and tornado watch, and warnings along the surrounding cities, however the continually changes in time, JetBlue and mco were not update with each other, it changed so much, so fast."
Pros: "Flight attendant at the front with the glasses was excellent"
Cons: "The flight attendant at the front- I don’t know her name but she was wonderful, friendly and smiling and seemed genuinely pleased at her job. The flight attendant in the back I don’t believe smiled once the whole flight. It was a relatively short flight but still not one smile on boarding, in flight or once we landed. Probably gave the most morose safety demonstration in aviation history. I know most people don’t like their jobs but a smile does go a long way and for me personally it helps s great deal when you have an irrational fear of flying. She did nothing wrong but she could have at least looked like she wanted to be there."
Cons: "Pets were allowed on the flight, and we had no prior knowledge of this. I happened to be allergic to furry animals, especially cats and dogs. There were two dogs on board, one in a row toward the front and one in the back. There was nowhere that I could go and allergens were probably circulated in the system. There was also a terrible odor that several others said they could also smell. The attendant said that there was nothing that could be done, and we suffered through the entire flight. Also, the TV control was broken and there was no option to turn off the TV. The attendant said that there would be a $25 voucher issued for compensation. We have not heard a peep from anyone!"
Pros: "The inflight crew was amazing. Natalie was a sweetheart and super helpful. She even gave some of us a tour of the galleys and taught us a few things about Mosaic customers as well as a few other operational things. I didn’t catch the other flights attendants names as they covered more of the back of the plane but they were both insanely hospitable and it was very clear that they loved their jobs as they were having fun. The women who checked us in also accommodated is with Even More Space seats after knowing we were crew members!"
Cons: "As a non-rev I have no room to criticize. Only thing would be that the A/C model was an older version of the A320 (and I know that it will be updated eventually)"
Pros: "Cabin crew were polite and cheerful"
Cons: "Long delay"
Pros: "That we landed safely"
Cons: "Autistic child behind me without mom supervising her or sitting next to her . The child was about 11 but for some reason her mother was sitting on the isle next to her and wasn’t concerned about having that changed or helping her daughter have a better experience on the plane. The lil girl was screaming , she had a car that she rolled on my seat and the seat next to me for hrs. It’s not her fault, her mom didn’t do anything to help.. nothing .. Then the Crew was arguing and wasn’t happy at all .. Craig talks so fast on the intercome I couldn’t understand him .. Craig wasn’t happy with him having to do credit cards and wanted to do trash . Him and the crew from the back were arguing and I was in disbelief that not one crew member tried to help, talk to the mom or do anything about it .But they were involved in their own mess so they were not worried about the young lady screaming . I left that flight with a headache and no rest what so ever..i really wish the mom or someone would have said something.. absolutely awful flight .. awful I left there saying to the crew get me off of this plane pls .."
Cons: "Flight from Boston to salt lake City was delayed by more than an hour"
Pros: "Incoming plane 20min late, but crew worked well in couteously managing boarding process to regain some of that time back."
Pros: "This is a wonderful flight which serves a short leg of service. Absolutely indespensable."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong at all!"
Pros: "As always customer service from flight attendants are awesome nothing but the best"
Pros: "Flight was good and good crew"
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: "Great customer service, and more legroom for tall people like me. Also very comfortable and clean sits."
Cons: "The TV constantly on and playing by default is a big initial distraction. A static image or graphics would be more effective, instead of running motion picture."
Pros: "The boarding process was fast and easy. Finding the seats was easy. The inflight snacks were acceptable."
Cons: "The flight announcer at the beginning of the flight was super unprofessional. They kept having to stop their script in order to laugh and giggle. Had I not already know how to do the safety procedures, I wouldn't have learned it from him. The seat belt barely fit me. Now, to be fair, I am fat. But, when I had to suck in to belt in, there was no slack on the end. The seat 31C has a busted aux port. I tried to watch a movie, first off the closed captioning didn't work. So I tried to listen. The aux port wiggled in it's casing and there was so much static that there was no point in listening. The off boarding process was very slow and uncoordinated. I understand that they have to off board in a certain order. However, the flight announcer could have kept the rest of the plane updated on the process. Instead we had to sit in claustrophobic silence and fidget while the line of passengers in the aisle did not move."
Cons: "I was disappointed to find that my particular seat had a broken screen."
Pros: "The boarding process went so smoothly."
Cons: "One flight attendant, a tall gal with brown hair, talked so loudly to her crew mate through out the flight that we could hear her over our ear buds. She made sleep impossible until the last 45 mins of the trip."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times. The plane was hot. There was a loud crying baby behind us kicking our seats... I thought there was more than one baby and was surprised to see all that was generated by one. Our attendant was a little snarky and dismissive. One entertainment screen was on the fritz, and the sound was messed up on the other, so we hacked them together to make one functioning system for one of us. The fly-fi was out of range for all but the last 30 minutes. The seats seem to be getting narrower, and I've lost weight!"
Pros: "I did appreciate how apologetic the flight crew was and eventually we were able to board our flight. I also appreciated the credit that Jetblue gave me for the inconvienence. That showed sensitivity on their part that was refreshing. I know it is the holidays so its busy, and unexpected situations do arise during these times especially, so at least the credit provided some positive relief to the disappointment."
Cons: "I understand that maintaince is a necessary and usual part of flying planes every day, that said, I had booked the earlier flight for the purpose and intention of getting into Boston earlier to spend more time with my family but arriving 5 hours later than expected was disappointing. Needless to say, the traffic getting out of Boston at 4pm on a Tuesday only added insult to injury. This was also the second time that I had an underwhelming experience overall flying Jetblue so that added to the disappointment."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly and quickly"
Pros: "boarding seemed faster and effortless"
Cons: "older tv screens, can we get hd?"
Pros: "the seats were more comfortable than many other airlines, the snacks were more plentiful. I only saw one flight attendant doing anything in coach, he kept very busy and was pleasant. There was a female attendant around but I did not see her doing anything - maybe she was first class."
Cons: "First, the pre-boarding announcements were very difficult to hear and understand. The attendant spoke way too fast so that combined with the lack of clarity of the speakers made it almost impossible to understand what was being said. I have a hearing impairment so I need my husband to tell me but he too had trouble understanding the announcements. This was somewhat true during the announcements on the plane also, but less of a problem there. Let's face it, the audio systems really make things sound garbled so it is very important to speak clearly and slowly enough. I don't know how I could travel alone."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 5 hrs. Not the airline's fault but waited in the help line for over an hr before the agent told me there was no earlier flight I could be placed on - she was incorrect. Pointed out that there was another flight that had also been delayed and therefore hadn't left yet - she agreed, put me on standby. At the gate, the boarding crew did not know what they were doing. The plane was 20% empty but crew made situation very hectic by giving standby passengers seats, taking them away, and then realizing there was actually enough room on the plane. Crew was friendly but incompetent in terms of problem solving."
Cons: "Endless delays and extremely shitty boarding staff."
Pros: "ground crew, pilot, flight was smooth and gate connections to Jet Blue in Boston were fantastic!"
Cons: "leg room"
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Boarded half hour late. No explanation. Pretty standard on Cape Air these days"
Pros: "The pilot was amazing"
Pros: "Amazing view"
Cons: "Warning about what to take from carry-on, since it wasn't available during flight"
Pros: "I had the opportunity to sit in the co-pilots seat! What an amazing experience.. Flight departed on time too."
Cons: "Nothing at all.."
Cons: "One minute into the Flight the Outside Wing Compartment Came unlatched and the Door To it was open about 9” enough that I was watching my Briefcase come close to flying off the plane. Passenger notified the Pilot and they Returned to STL to inspect the Compartment Latch."
Pros: "Fun flight to the cape. Awesome pilot"
Pros: "Easy going nice"
Pros: "I flew in from Houston, TX to visit family in Sharon, VT. The closest major airports are Boston and Manchester and both are several hours away. For a few extra bucks, I can fly to Lebanon, NH thanks to Cape Air and save my family members hours and hours of driving. Very convenient. The Cape Air staff and pilots are always super friendly!"
Cons: "The plane can be kind of loud; it is certainly a good idea to pack hearing protection."
Pros: "Quick flight. Excellent service."
Pros: "Reach early"
Cons: "No ac but it’s ok"
Cons: "My Pre TSA Check did not apply to flight"
Pros: "Flight from Havre to Billings was fine, from check in through security and to the flight. Smoke from CA, OR, NV fires really limited the view, but CapeAir did fine with their service"
Cons: "Seats are a little small, but that is to be expected in such a small plane. Other than that, the flight was great."
Pros: "Staff were great - courteous, professional and friendly. Plane was a fun experience as always."
Cons: "Not Cape Air’s fault, but the smoky haze (from fires in CA, OR, NV) diminished some of the long views - vistas were not quite as beautiful as on past flights."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Nice option to fly to small airport closer to home."
Cons: "Connection booked too close. Missed flight, new flight delayed. Kayak booking does not leave enough time to transfer."
Pros: "Friendliest flight crew, airport attendants and security agents anywhere."
Pros: "Good people quick flight"
Cons: "I'm a big guy and it's a really small plane."
Pros: "Flight on time. Nice smooth ride. Very friendly pilot."
Pros: "Crew was pilot and helpful in explaining the situation to me."
Cons: "Got bumped from a flight to make way for a pilot in training. The fact that this happened on christmas eve made it even worse. Had to wait until boarding to find out that was being bumped and was told I shouldn't have been allowed to check in."
Pros: "The View was spectacular. The plane was a little bit too smelly."
Cons: "The View was beautiful"
Cons: "I asked the ground crew for a box that I had checked and was told that it would be forwarded to my next flight. It wasn't. Now cape air is telling me the only way I can get it back is to fly to San Juan and pick it up."
Cons: "We were left waiting after the flight we were booked on took off full. Had to wait another 45min to have a private flight with no copilot."
Pros: "You see there was a terrible storm that closed the EIS Beef Island Airport. But because I booked through ya'll I was totally screwed. The individual Airlines are not permitted to rebook my ticket because you are a third party carrier. and You would not rebook because the airline could not change the flight status on the first plane from Mayaguez to San Juan - that flight was not cancelled due to the closure but because I would be stuck in San Juan for possibly 2 days with no money and no where to sleep, well you get the point. So InterCaribbean and Cape Air came to the rescue and after a 4-5 hour ordeal and having to travel to Mayaguez airport I am now rebooked."
Cons: "Y'all and will never ever ever book through a third party again."
Pros: "Friendly & informative pilot, smooth efficient ground crew: they didn't bang up my vintage Levi's back pack..."
Cons: "No complaints...A+"
Pros: "Still Stuck in Nantucket. Cape Air cancelled my flight and then didn't put me in another. I'm still stuck in Nantucket."
Pros: "The flight itself was nice"
Cons: "Being delayed and the process of dealing with the delays was a real headache"
Pros: "I sat in the copilot seat since plane was so small."
Cons: "Delayed so I missed my connection in Boston. I ran to catch it but the door was closed and they wouldn't let me on, even though plan was still sitting at the gate. I had 8 min to spare."
Pros: "Ride was smooth."
Cons: "No information nor staff at counter, so one was uncertain when flight would depart."
Pros: "Flying over the traffic heading to Hyannis where you take the ferry to Hyannis. Experienced pilot who told us the stewardess would be passing out food after we were airborne. Good sense of humor in a 9 passenger plane."
Pros: "Got me to Boston, eventually, safely. Nice view from low altitude. Plane provides for an intimate experience with pilot and fellow passengers"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay with no information or confusing information about departure prospects."
Pros: "Easy, painless and on time!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Flights across the east coast were delayed, luckily ours was only 15min late to take off."
Cons: "Landing crew in Boston was rude, bossy, and repetitively sciolding, just because I touched the door of the plane. No instructions nor to or warnings were posted, but he kept harassing me and the other passengers.about "our safety"."
Pros: "The flight itself was good, pilot was nice, I got to sit in the copilot's seat which was fun."
Cons: "At the Nantucket airport, they don't let you through security until your flight is called. I heard mine called and went up but the woman at the desk said she hadn't heard it so wouldn't let me through. Ten minutes later, I'm being paged over the intercom. Again, I wasn't let through until I tracked down someone from the airline. By the time I finally got through, my flight had gone and I needed to be rebooked. Incredibly frustrating as the intercom is the only way to know what's going on with your flight, so I couldn't look at a board or anything to know the status."
Cons: "My flight from Rutland to Boston was unexpectedly cancelled with very little notice. I could not reschedule my trip because I needed to catch a separate flight from Boston. My alternative was to drive there and stay the night in a hotel, which was expensive and frustrating. I will be calling for a refund."
Pros: "It is always a pleasure to fly with Cape Air. The staff especially in Owls Head are phenomenally nice and helpful."
Pros: "The pilots were really friendly, the plane was comfortable, and the trip was short. Nice take off and landing. Very smooth."
Cons: "The lady behind me kept showing my seat around and pulling on my hair. Apparently she didn't have enough room or something because it lasted the whole 45 minutes. We hit some turbulence which was pretty rough but not terrible. would have been nice to have arm rests. Also boarding and take off was late and which made me late to my appointments."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled because of engine trouble. As a result we miss our connecting flight to our final destination."
Pros: "They plain didn't crash although it sounded like that was likely when we were taking off."
Cons: "The lack of ear protection to cancel out some of the loudness of the small aircraft would have been REALLY nice."
Pros: "All aspects of the flight were smooth on a nice day and I really enjoyed flying at 7k feet. A lot of people don't like flying in small planes but I do. There is no bathroom, food or entertainment available and all of your bags go into cargo. I was the only passenger so it felt like a chartered trip. Arrived about 5 minutes early."
Pros: "It was a smooth ride. Best flight I haven't had in a long time"
Cons: "taking off almost an hour late for a 20-minute flight. poor planning re weight restrictions so that luggage for several passengers had to be put on a future flight. no information given re delay."
Cons: "They have a bad rap in the Caribbean for bad service and unreliability, as I found out after my bad experiences. I was left stranded in St Croix because even though they charged me for the flight "my name didn't appear on their seat list." And they were like oops nothing we can do sorry. This time, they left me stranded in Puerto Rico. For three days they couldn't rebook me. Flight was cancelled on xmas weekend because the "pilot was over his hours." After they rebooked everyone else on the flight including my boyfriend, their computer wouldn't rebook me for some reason so I had to purchase a ticket to be able to leave. They assured me they would refund me but of course I've been emailing with Cape Air for a week and still no refund. Never flying with them again obviously, and recommend you avoid them if you have connections or need to get somewhere guaranteed. Maybe they have better service on the east coast but they should do a total overhaul of their service in the Caribbean."
Pros: "But it came on the next flight to Rutland and was delivered to my house that evening."
Pros: "I'd probably pay for this flight as just an entertaining ride from above to see Puerto Rico."
Pros: "Great. But you have to not be scared of small planes. The plane only seats 8 people. You can high five the pilot."
Cons: "Very small. I'm 6'4" very tight fit"
