Cons: "Two hours and a half late and no updates whatsoever"
Pros: "Yes the crew was great."
Cons: "It was a short 2.5 hr flight. Jet blue provided packaged snacks and a soft drink at no additional charge. Other airlines charge for everything.

Pros: "The TV options"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by one and half hour because crew members were travelling to Newark airport from other place. Flight was scheduled at 6:00 PM and Crew members were scheduled to arrive at 5:51 PM. Poor scheduling. Boarding started only after Crew member arrived. Then came the glitch in accounting for fuels filled in the aircraft."
Pros: "Jet Blue always has comfortable seats, friendly staff, and a great flying experience"
Cons: "The entertainment system was down so, no movies were available"
Cons: "I missed my flight and I took JetBlue before and this first this happened"

Cons: "That we were delayed by 90 mins."
Pros: "Did not board that flight... I received emails throughout the day of departure time changes and the last email indicated that they had changed the departure time 33 minutes earlier. I was already en route for the flight when I received the email . When I got there they refused to let us boar stating that we were late!!! The attendants were very rude and not at all helpful! Instead they booked a flight for me the next day at a very early time! I lost out time and money! I had booked a hotel. I will never book any flights with Jet Blue ever again."
Cons: "The seats barely reclined it was very uncomfortable and the entertainment was not the best"
Pros: "Leg room was good, comfortable."
Cons: "A 4 hour delay with no explanation as to why. Also don't like that you don't give earbugs for the entertainment."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice despite appearing a bit overworked and frazzled."
Cons: "We were over 30 min late taking off because the pilots were late from another flight and people wouldn't listen to crew instructions to sit down. Monitors wouldn't work for entertainment. That didn't really bother me, but it was an issue for the two people sitting in my row. We had paid $40 for even more, so I was surprised when the flight attendant wouldn't give my neighbor a complimentary pillow so he could rest since the monitor wouldn't work. Flight attendant said he would need to pay $5. I feel flight attendants should be given permission to change policy based on certain circumstances."
Pros: "I didn’t die."
Cons: "The 6 hour delay. The over tired, but outright rude crew in both the airport and plane."
Pros: "Over all the flight from Richmond Virginia to Orlando Florida was good and even with delays the staff were very friendly and helpful in informing the passengers of what to happen next."
Cons: "Delays! That is all. Huge inconvenience. Overall it turned out okay though."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "The shotness of the crew and all the noise slamming around the compartments being slammed contnuously and angrily"
Cons: "None of the TVs worked on the flight. The boarding crew in the terminal was rude and very short with everyone. i had to go up multiple times to ask about my seating assignment and was ignored and then waved away multiple times. And then as boarding began I was given a seat saying they "thought i was on standby" but i never was. i was given a seat in the last row with two other people who had infants on their laps so it was a very tight fit."
Cons: "I had a great flight! No complaints! I didn’t use I flight entertainment, so I can’t recommend either way. The food was good, but I did purchase it. Hence the 4 stars."
Cons: "I wasn’t able select more channels to view and not able to see the live map to track the trip. I think it wasn’t working my."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable."
Cons: "Los televisores de nuestra fila no funcionaban y al llegar el vuelo tuvimos que esperar 40 minutos para poder salir del avión."
Cons: "My husband & I were in Row 5 & in last boarding group. When we got to our seats, all of the overhead bins were filled all the way back to Row 8. So, we put our suitcases up there. When we landed, we had to wait for everyone to get off the plane to be able to go back to those bins. And someone had already exited the plane with my husband’s suitcase. Their suitcase was left. We spent an hour with Suitcase Services, but could not find out who took my husband’s suitcase. (No ID inside theirs) I recommend that you board lower numbered rows first so that people in the back rows don’t take the front bins!"
Pros: "The best part of this trip was checking in.. it was a breeze.. I must say the Orlando landing was the best touchdown I've ever experienced..Smooth.."
Cons: "Let's start with getting on the airplane was like herding sheep.. When I finally got to my seat someone was in it.. And I had no place to put my carry on.. The flight was suppose to leave 9:00pm.. we didn't leave til 9:40.. The safety announcement was awful. We cudnt hear most of it.. The turbulence was scary and the noise made me put on headphones to sleep. Once it landed in Orlando the airplane traveled around the entire airport .. It took forever to get off the plane but I was so happy to get off"
Pros: "Comfy seats. Snacks. Easy boarding. Online checkin was a breeze."
Cons: "JFK security screening was slow for the volume of people. LONG queue line. Made me reconsider and apply for PreCheck to prevent future backups. Not JetBlue's fault, but JFK, like LAX and other major hubs is a labrinyth with many levels of hell to overcome. Leave ample extra time. Esp if you have checked luggage."
Pros: "Loved the comfortable seats and the entertainment options even though we had such a short flight. Boarding process was fast and efficient. Loved having Cheese Its as the snack!"
Cons: "Our return flight from Nantucket to JFK was delayed numerous times which made for a long day getting back to Baltimore. Totally understand that it was due to fog and have to say I received many texts shifting the time forward and backward."
Cons: "my entertainment screen was messed up, no sirius xm and video programs blacked out, plus brightness control graphic would not go off screen. Flight was late, again. Piece of used chewing gum was stuck under armrest handle."
Pros: "The process. The flight. The crew."
Cons: "Our entertainment TV didn't work"
Cons: "Flight was delayed so I got an earlier flight but they did not change my luggage, so I had to wait for original flight to come in to retrieve bag"
"It was not what I had expected but it was a great way to see the landscape."
Pros: "ground crew, pilot, flight was smooth and gate connections to Jet Blue in Boston were fantastic!"
Cons: "leg room"

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: "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: "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"
