"Delayed with no updates and zero taking care of passengers"

"Great experience!"

"Late departure rude crew"

"plane was delayed 1 hour"

"On both my flights to and from Cabo, my flights were over an hour delayed."

"They are misleading, rude and deceitful."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and accommodating The aircraft was clean"
Cons: "Food/Snack options Ability to connect Bluetooth to television"

Pros: "Amazing crew and pilot flew us around all bumps — was a very smooth flight."
Cons: "All was amazing"

Pros: "I love JetBlue service and the crew. Every time."

Pros: "Seats Social distancing"
Cons: "Nothing Was perfect"

Pros: "Very comfy seating. Polite flight crew."
Cons: "A cookie before landing I feel is a bit underwhelming. I preferred the warm bagel with cream cheese. Especially if you have to run off straight to work after landing. So maybe it sounds like a nit pick. But it would be nice to maybe have a choice of a cookie or bagel? Just a thought."

Pros: "Great crew. Z and Antonio were great!"
Cons: "The breakfast meal."

Pros: "The crew and leg room are really good compared to comparable flights on United, Delta or American. Especially love the power plug behind the seats."
Cons: "Couldn't watch any movies, and most of the DirectTV movies would not play. I was in seat 24 F, and 24 E had the same issue. They told us the reset the system, but it didn't help. Still, plenty of entertainment and on an actual screen on the back of the seat. So I consider it only a dissapointment on an otherwise good airline."

Pros: "Todo fue muy bien exelente"

Cons: "For a two hour tarmac wait could have served some snacks!"

Pros: "Boarding was reasonable, movies were ok and crew was attentive. Overhead space was good and leg room was satisfactory. Does seem to be a bit big than other airlines."
Cons: "Would prefer Seats to have been more comfortable. Difficult to place backpack under seat due to TV utility box. Snacks could have been better such as dried fruit, vegetable chips or herbal, decaf tea."

Pros: "JetBlue crew was awesome"
Cons: "this time around the whole experience was great"

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze. I was a little late and wanted an aisle seat even though I had no hope there was one available. The gate clerk was very pleasant and was able to move me."

Pros: "It was my birthday and they went above and beyond to make me feel special wishing me happy birthday shortly after teaching my seat and by giving me a Birthday card signed by the crew and treats."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 5 hours with almost no reports from the desk/PA and the desk was only manned within 1/2 hour of boarding."

Pros: "Jetblue is my now number 1 choice for flying. They offer amazing comfort and value."
Cons: "Including free headphones, but not a deal breaker."

Pros: "One flight attendant was sweet and kind the other was rude the boarding crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The older white lady was snarky for no reason to not just me idk if she was just cranky or what. My screen never worked the entire flight and the wifi was slow and shotty it was a harsh flight and I usually rave over jetblue idk what happened."

Pros: "I liked the entertainment that was available."
Cons: "The boarding is very haphazard. Clusters of people just standing around waiting for their group to be called. So when your group is called there are already several people there wanting you to get behind them. Which doesn’t make sense since I’ve been there a whole 2 hours before all of them."

Pros: "My experiences flying with JetBlue have been consistently great! Delays happen & are of course out of the crew’s control, but offering free snacks while we waited & the efficient boarding process, along with the free movie & TV choices on the seat back screens, make the process great!"
Cons: "My only issues have been with LAX itself & staff there (nothing crazy, just less than stellar service & somewhat rude staff occasionally) but flying with JetBlue has been awesome."

Cons: "More complimentary food options given it’s a 6 and a half hour flight."

Pros: "Great service and amenities!!!"

Pros: "Great crew. Extra space seats are worth it. They added another flavor of pop chips!"
Cons: "I wish there were more movies offered. I love that they are there and there is live tv-but that offering could be improved."

Pros: "The colors"
Cons: "THERE ARE ONLY 1-2 STAFF MEMEBRS AT TERMINAL 5 JFK (busiest ailier in the world) for 309+ passengers an hour that’s not enough. I booked with you guys and paid extra money for worthless travels, but no. Never again with JetBlue"

Cons: "Very turbulent flight and overcrowded"

Pros: "The Agents at the counter in the terminal gate were courteous."
Cons: "My flight was delayed because an attendant had to be swapped out, then the replacement was stuck in traffic for an hour (why not have all attendants ready on-airport?). Comically, we taxied on the runway for over an hour, which caused more delays with the plane needing to be de-iced. Figured I'd put all that behind me, but then the flight experienced one of the worst turbulences I've been in. We jerked through the skies many times, and the pilots weren't reassuring. Thankfully we landed okay, but not after being late by multiple hours. Also, JetBlue needs to invest in its planes, esp. its Couch section. I felt like a pretzel with on room to breathe."

Pros: "I slept a lot, there is more space than most planes"
Cons: "We were delayed by 3 hours, the flight had so much turbulence throughout, no water was passed out during our delay, in fact, it took way too long for beverages. When I boarded and settled in, a flight attendant was crushing Ice for about 30 minutes and the flight crew in the back was really loud during the flight when most of us were trying to sleep."

Pros: "Safe quick flight for the long journey despite delay in boarding and departure"
Cons: "Major delays not only going but returning with JetBlue. This was my first time flying them and I’m likely to never use them again. Poor customer service as no one was willing to help with WiFi set up on the way going since I’ve never flown them. Luckily I found 1 nice flight attendant and he helped point me in the right direction in set up. Overall not impressed with service and performance of this carrier."

Pros: "Free WiFi! Taking off and landing on time, smooth boarding, good snacks"
Cons: "The staff seemed a little tired but not unkind, just not psyched to be here."

Pros: "Pretty average JetBlue flight. I love the direct TV and wifi"
Cons: "Annoying and time consuming to discover that I couldn’t check in for my flight anywhere besides the counter at JFK because I had two layovers and that JetBlue and Hawaiian had completely different itineraries for me. And then when the flight attendant who checked me in mocked my 2 layover itinerary and said there was a direct flight to HNL from JFK leaving later that morning, she at least could have tried to sell me a seat on that flight, rather than rudely laugh at me “I guess you can only do what you can do” like I was too poor or something. That was annoying. I’m bored of the JetBlue snack selection it’s been the same for years."

Cons: "That the flight kept on getting delayed. JB staff should be more efficient. We understand the delay of up to one hour, but no one had any idea what was taking so long. we are two senior citizen with medical conditions. We specifically choose to fly JetBlue because they are on time and because of their service. We paid more to go with JetBlue, we could have gone with another cheaper airline. I guess it is time we change the way we think"

Pros: "Cabin crew were great at looking after us and we had plenty of legroom in coach!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection was a bit limited and there was no wi-fi."

Pros: "Unpleasant. I requested some water, it arrived far too late. I stated I had diarrhea. The staff stated “Take your seat.” I stated I was under a doctors care for some injuries, I needed to be able to stretch my hip.” Once again the staff stated “take your seat.” The staff was rude, condescending, seemed annoyed and angry with having to do their job. I declare under penalty of perjury the formentioned is true and correct under the laws of the state of California. Karen Schuber"
Cons: "See above please."

Pros: "All our flights with jetblue were excellent"

Pros: "everything was good except that I didn’t like to pay for blanket"
Cons: "to pay for blanket"

Pros: "Literally the worst flight I’ve ever been on in my life."
Cons: "We were seated behind a woman who brought a sick cat into the flight. The stench of cat feces was overwhelming. When we addressed it with the staff, they were incredibly rude. I also shared that I had a very significant cat allergy. The staff continued to be incredibly rude, and eventually offered a single seat in the back, which would not accommodate the two of us. The woman next to us also expressed her extreme discomfort and was condescended and disrespected, as well. Shocking, miserable experience."

Pros: "Free WiFi was great, but wish I could sign in with my Amazon account instead of setting up TrueBlue."
Cons: "The food cart rushed by without asking if we wanted anything. Also not clear until after food purchase that free snacks would be available throughout the flight."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, and they had lots of options for entertainment"
Cons: "The plane is very cramped. I am a very small person and I still felt like I couldn’t really move to get things under the seat in front of me. The crew also only came around with food once during the flight, and I happened to be sleeping then, so I didn not get a chance to have any food."

Pros: "I liked the staff because they kept checking on me to see if I was comfortable since I wasn't feeling well."
Cons: "I did not like it when they asked me If I wanted to wait for another plane until I felt better. When I really wanted them to asks how can we assist you and make sure your flight is well."

Pros: "I wanted to first say that Colleen is maybe my favorite flight attendant I have ever had! She was so sweet and let us take multiple snacks and was extremely accommodating, never seeming annoyed by any request. I loved the entertainment, having new movies I have never seen made the flight fly by! The seats were comfortable and roomy, with a nice pocket to hold the water bottle. Overall very impressed with JetBlue this time around!"

Cons: "A 2 year old child screamed approximately 4 of the 5 hours we were in the air. The crew should have brought it to the attention of the parents or asked that they take the child to the back of plane and try to calm him down ."

Pros: "We boarded right on time and the boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed three hours because of air conditioning malfunctioning on the plane. We sat on the tarmac for almost two and a half hours, and it must have been around 85 degrees on the plane. There was a lot of miscommunication about whether we would be switching aircraft. They finally told us to deplane because we were probably going to switch planes. After 15 minutes in the terminal, we reboarded the same plane. Got to LA 3 hours late so had to deal with horrible rush hour traffic, which we had hoped to avoid had we taken off on time."

Pros: "Crew were fine, boarding was easy. But on a 6 hour flight you have an expectation that the media will work, especially from Jet Blue since that’s what they build their business on."
Cons: "50% of the entertainment consoles were not working."

Cons: "TSA held me up with a 30 minute bag check so I arrived for an 11:30 AM flight at 11:16 AM. I was told that because I was a minute late they wouldn't let me on even though the plane was still in the runway and connected to the terminal. I asked to speak to a supervisor and the agent disappeared for 10 minutes while the plane took off. I then went to go speak to a customer service agent who wouldn't even look at me while I spoke. She actually started listening to and talking with another agent while I was talking to her. Then when I was finished, she started arguing with me until another agent said "he's not worth it." JetBlue just lost my business."

Pros: "The crew were okay. They were friendly."
Cons: "We left about 45 minutes late and there was no communication from the pilot as to why. Also there must have been a short or something in the wiring for my t.v. because I would put it on a channel and it would change by itself. It was also difficult to scroll through the options on the screen."

Pros: "The seat was uncomfortable and the flight was full. The crew was okay. Friendly enough."
Cons: "Next time I will fly first class.. More legroom"

Pros: "Crew was fun. Didn't get to finish movie because no wifi from den to mtj"

Pros: "crew were great."

Cons: "Flight personnel seem like they dont enjoy their job."

Cons: "The delays, gate changes in a massive airport, and general lack of information made this trip excruciating."

Pros: "In flight entertainment is provided through a screen in front of your seat. There are many different channels to browse."

Cons: "They had no room for my carry on, I had to place it under my seat making my legs very comfortable."

Cons: "Wouldnt refund my ticket or change my flight when I needed to change it fee for everything"

Pros: "Felt like the pilot was experienced and skilled because It was very smooth in departing and landing."
Cons: "There was a lady sitting on my assigned seat. She said flight attendance told her that is ok to do. I wouldn't mind if she or staff asked me with legitimate reasons. It happened at mt last trip; ending up sitting next to big person instead of sitting with my 12 year old daughter."

Cons: "Our flight was “delayed” 12 hours! Notably not cancelled and rebooked because then they would have to compensate us, I believe"

Pros: "Crew was professional"
Cons: "Being delayed 2.5 hrs"

Pros: "Never made connection since first flight was deplaned"
Cons: "Never made it"

Cons: "We almost miss our flight cos the line was so long in the custom check out n the airport crews kept directing us in the wrong lines. It was very unorganised."

Cons: "No entertainment for a 6 hour flight. Only served pretzels for food. Most of the crew was fine but one flight attendant was very rude, pushy, and condescending. Literally pushing me out of the way as I’m trying to board, yelling across the plane, rude comments over the speaker... honestly surprised such a large airline would tolerate this."

Pros: "We arrived in one piece so United did exactly what they offered. The gate crew kept up updated over the 2 hour delay including the gate change."
Cons: "United shouldn't make access to the in-flight entertainment on planes *without* monitors dependent on the customer's personal electronic devices if they don't offer an intranet link that is available to all devices. For example, not all devices also for the download of certain files to java script which is necessary to gain access to the in flight entertainment."

Pros: "The crew were great, but"
Cons: "the airline had to hold the connecting flight because of gate assignments"

Cons: "Denied access to lounge in Chicago. Didn't have requested (vegetarian) meal. Flight attendants were rude, not friendly."

Cons: "The itinerary printed out that I was traveling Lufthansa so my nephew left me off at Terminal B; but after trying to print out my boarding pass unsuccessfully, the supervisor said that I was booked on United which is at Term C. I had to rush on the air train to the crowded Airtrain & running thru Security & Customs."

Pros: "Flight was on time and I received my checked baggage."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable due to insufficient foot space. All (about 6) overhead bins in the rear of the aircraft were full because crew stored “essential equipment” in them. Crew was not professional. After takeoff they never came around to see if anyone needed anything and not even a glass of water was offered for the entire flight. They didn’t even ensure that everyone wore seatbelts on landing - woman next to me was stretched out hugging her companion while landing wilth unbuckled seatbelt. Entertainment screen did not wirk properly."

Pros: "The person at the United customer service desk was able to book me on the next available flight to Reno (after missing my original flight mentioned above) quickly and efficiently. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "I was late to my original flight and the United personal that I talked to at the gate was very rude. I asked if the plane was still boarding and all she said was go to customer service. I know I gave her a questioning look because this did not answer my original question. She repeated her statement again this time pointing. I would have preferred that she tell me that the flight had finished boarding but customer service could help me get on another flight. I feel that would have been more professional. My new flight was also an hour late"

Cons: "slightly delayed"

Cons: "The flight ran out of eggs so my breakfast was only fruit and a yogurt but honestly with that being the worst thing that happened I will take it."

Cons: "Very limited leg room, very expesive entertainment - even for flight information ($US4/hour), no need to follow TSA rules (number and size of carry-on, placing carry-on under the seat, storing bags in overhead close to where you sit, etc.)."

Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "Due to a change that wasn't communicated, my seats were changed from check in to arrival at the gate. I was moved farther back and lost my window seat for a middle seat."

Pros: "Good cabin & flight crew; kept us informed."
Cons: "Ran late. Seats are time (I'm average weight & height). Windows couldn't have been lower or we'd have been looking at the gear."

Pros: "The flight and crew were satisfactory"
Cons: "That was probably the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. There is no room to stretch your legs or to recline the seat. To fly almost eight hours sitting straight up with no leg room is not something I want to do on a regular basis."

Pros: "Assigned seat - delayed because of hot breaks but stayed on tarmac to cool while cooled only about 10 min."
Cons: "Airline stewardess should have suggested mom with young child in lap could move to empty row of seats."

Cons: "Didn't take the plane!"

Pros: "Time"

Pros: "Was able to fly standby and get home earlier. Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "Slept most of the way, but this plane didn't have television screens, so limited entertainment options."

Pros: "Not applicable. Appreciate 40 minute flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight which didn't bother me as was due to maintenance. Couldn't hear the gate agent over the microphone. Updates of delay could have been more that just the initial announcement. Snack bag had 8pieces in it."

Cons: "Same as my experience on first flight - see comment above. Terrible!"

Pros: "The kindness of the crew, was having a panic attack.They calmed me down with a smile an plenty of water.Thanks"
Cons: "I would have liked more nuts ,"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The price"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. The flight arrived much earlier than scheduled."

Pros: "On time. Good temperature control."
Cons: "Extremely cramped. Need More bathrooms.food options not clear."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Aircraft interior is dated."

Pros: "Crew was awesome."
Cons: "NO entertainment whatsoever unless you purchased it, $5 is expensive"

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants Help luggage personel"
Cons: "NA"

Cons: "without notice, plane made significant shift ..about 70 degrees..... Passengers began to scream. after about 5-10 minutes, pilot announces we were 10 miles away from plane in front of us and got caught in its tail wind. I was never so frightened on an airplane as this flight."

Pros: "every thing"

Cons: "Purchased tickets 4 months before this flight for a departure time of 6:05pm. Tried to check in and check baggage at 9:30am but was turned away saying I could only check in 3 hrs prior to my flight. Came back at 3:00pm to check-in and they could not find my information. An hour later they find out that they cancelled the flight and moved my departure time to 8:25am for that day. They say they emailed 3 times in May but I never got it (I'm a bit crazy about my email staying clean) so they say it might have went in to my spam folder due to they types of emails they send to customers. They only kept repeating that they notified me so there is nothing they could do. I ended up going to Air Canada to get a flight from PHX to RNO the next day. No apology, no help, no hotel for the night...Terrible experience by United. They gave me a customer relations group contact information to follow up with for complaint but since they sent me the 3 emails in May about the change, they have no liability to fix the situation."

Pros: "Smooth. No problems. Happy we didn't have to get suitcases through customs because you could handle in Canada. Happy gate was near where we got off."

Pros: "Zero."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and asked for several volunteers to take later flights for travel credit. Ended up forcing those unlucky souls in the last boarding group off flight with no offer of credit or accommodation. Waited in customer service line for hours, literally longer than it would have taken to take off and arrive at my scheduled destination. United representatives could not find a flight that guaranteed a seat (not on a long standby list) that was even in the same 12 hour period. I spoke with a United supervisor who showed zero empathy or concern with the situation. In the end I arranged for other travel accommodations to drive to my family reunion destination. No refund was issued or offered. I was informed I would have to call United customer service after the date of my previously scheduled return flight to explain my situation. I will personally never fly United again and would recommend the same to anyone. Although for the record, I did receive a single ten dollar airport food voucher for my inconvenience. Inexcusable."

Pros: "Staff and Pilots did a great job. Wheelchair was much apprecciated!!! Everything was on time or ahead of it. Great landing!! Wish you didn't charge for baggage and would like better snacks--oh for the good old days!"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "No leg room... Overbooked so I could not upgrade. The kid behind me kicked my seat for 3 hours"

Pros: "Roomy planes. In flight entertainment. Great service."

Pros: "Comfortable seats ,they seem to have a new ergonomic design that make them more comfy . More leg room even in regular economy seating."
Cons: "Staff wasn't very talkative just kinda did the basic beverage service and that's it . Not rude but not overly friendly either . The crews that work for Southwest make you laugh and they're so much more interactive with passengers ."

Pros: "I liked that it got me to my destination"
Cons: "No entertainment, really uncomfortable, arm rest don't go up, planes are not cleaned from previous passengers, flight attendants hardly smile and don't interact as much as other airlines, delayed flights every time I fly with United."

Cons: "United had 3 gate changes. Ok sometimes that happens. This was said due to a storm out of colorado"
