Cons: "This was a flight to Morocco. The first leg was thru Jet Blue to JFK. The second Royal Maroc to Casablanca. I had contacted Royal Maroc about excess and overweight baggage (the ticket was purchased here). I was told no problem pay for it upon check in. At check in I was not allowed to bring the extra baggage. I had originally told Maroc that it would be two boxes. It ended up being one. Jet Blue said I was not permitted to bring a box or a 4th piece of luggage. No feasible solution was offered other than to drive to JFK (10 hours from RDU). I would have needed to check in in less than 8."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Jetblue cancelled the flight 1 hour prior to departure. I had ordered a pkg through Kayak and had a departing flight to Asia from NYC leaving 2 hours after arrival. Instead of booking me on another flight that night to NYC, Jetblue rebooked my ticket for two days later. Even though I shared that we had prepaid the hotel stay and would lose that time in addition to a shortened trip, Jetblue did nothing to help. We were beyond devastated. We found our own ticket to NYC from Delta without help from Jetblue. This experience has left a very bitter taste in my mouth and destroyed my preference for Jetblue."
Pros: "Everything went great."
Cons: "Incomodos asientos. Pasajeros con mal olor en axilas."
Cons: "The flight was canceled and I had to get a cab from Shanghai to ningbo for $500 and didn't use the ticket. I want a refund."
Pros: "Good seats with ample of leg space, good choice of entertainment"
Pros: "My bags were checked in all the way to Penang."
Cons: "Could not check in online 24 hrs before. Got a scare that JetBlue did not have my reservation. Had to call JetBlue and waited a long time to speak to someone who could not help me and had to transfer me to one who deals with travel packages, then had to wait a long time again. I also could not pick seat but the agent who dealt with travel package luckily could."
Pros: "Very Professional"
Pros: "Lots of leg room. Good snack and drink options. Flight was on time. Everything worked from wifi to TV."
Pros: "The pilot was kind and to the point."
Cons: "The guy who boarded us told me to wait as his computer could not check me in. 10min later he is rushing me to get on the runway. It was 30min before scheduled take off. I had ordered food and had to cancel my order before the café had finished, so he wasted food and did not get paid and I was hurried and boarded the plane hungry. I probably won't use Cape Air again unless it's an emergency situation"
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: "Super nice!"
Pros: "Fun flight to the cape. Awesome pilot"
Pros: "Easy going nice"
Pros: "Cape Air never disappoints. A great option other than driving . Not to mention a great value"
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: "Considering I was a bit scared flying on a small plane my pilot was excellent. I enjoyed this flight so much. It was spectacular!"
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."
Pros: "Got to sit next to the pilot!"
Cons: "Nothing, it was an absolutely breath taking flight!!"
Cons: "Connection booked too close. Missed flight, new flight delayed. Kayak booking does not leave enough time to transfer."
Pros: "Being the co-pilot"
Pros: "Flight on time. Nice smooth ride. Very friendly pilot."
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: "My first time on a such small plane and the ride and the landing were very smooth with great views!!"
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: "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 was a brief, smooth, enjoyable flight."
Cons: "My checked suitcase weighing <30lbs. was not put on the plane because of a weight constraint (combined weight of passengers and their luggage). I collected my suitcase from the airport the next day. Of course, airplane safety is a must, but I saw others dealing with their luggage also having been "bumped". Traveling this way is unreliable and, for me, less than satisfactory."
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."
Pros: "The flight was on time and it was a great flight on a nice sunny day! We arrived earlier than informed at the time of takeoff."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled because of engine trouble. As a result we miss our connecting flight to our final destination."
Pros: "Great pilots Flies where other airlines don't Quick check in"
Cons: "Booked a 8:30 AM flight VQS->SJU. At 10AM the night before received an email stating the flight "may have been cancelled." Called cape air, they confirmed cancellation but couldn't rebook me on another flight; went on their website and paid for another flight (10:04). The next morning for way of explanation told that "the plane broke." Got to the airport, initially the replacement flight was delayed till 10:30, then at 11:00 we were told that flight was also cancelled. Since we did not have a connecting flight we were placed at the end of the line. They did get us out later in the day, although i suppose because we were just squeezed in I was sitting in the back where I had to sit cross-legged as i only had about 4 inches of legroom. So 2 cancellations and poor communications on a round trip ticket = mediocre review. If I don't get my money back on the first flight I'll revise this to 1/5."
Pros: "Everything! Staff, captain, plane, efficiency, intimacy of the small plane. I don't love flying - it's a means to an end. But, this flight was fun. No food, but it was a 30 minute flight, so no refreshment needed."
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: "I loved the whole experience."
Pros: "It was a smooth ride. Best flight I haven't had in a long time"
Pros: "Great service and quick flight from Lebanon to White Plains. Super convenient and the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over an hour. Nothing was said by anyone at cape air until i asked the attendant at the desk, which led to an announcement being made 45 mins into delay."
Cons: "Due to weight issue we made it safely to Cuelbra but our bags did not. Hopefully they arrive today or we will be going 2 days without them. No fun"
Pros: "There was no food or entertainment so you should include a column in the survey that reads: N/A Otherwise excellent pilot!"
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"
Pros: "Crew is very friendly and the views are beautiful."
Cons: "This plane is an 8-seater, so no food, no drinks, no entertainment and no lavatory. Short flight, though, so not a big deal."
