Pros: "Pilot came out to talk to us! Flight attendant handled things very well!"
Cons: "Wish there had been more food options."
Pros: "The service that JetBlue offers is always excellent. The seats were comfortable and the flight was timely. All in all an excellent representation of JetBlue's quality of service."
Cons: "I arrived at Fort Lauderdale Airport 55 minutes before my scheduled flight and was told that the flight was closed because I was not there at least an hour before the flight. On my boarding pass it listed the boarding time and the time the gate would close BUT no where did it stipulate the last time to check in. I do think in this situation, they could have accommodated me and perhaps gate checked my luggage...but that was not offered. I had checked in online, had my boarding pass but clearly did not allot enough time to get to the airport. Traffic, post Hurricane Irma is still unpredictable, but think there could have been a bit of "wiggle room" in the rule. JetBlue did book me on the next flight (the next day), but I was saddened to miss a day of holiday meeting my son in Cartagena."

Pros: "Why does a plane run out of Food and wine?"
Pros: "I arrived in Sydney the day I was supposed to. Everything else was a let down and was not what I paid for."
Cons: "American Airlines cancelled a flight because of ‘weather’ from Msy to dfw, all other flights from Msy to Dallas operated on time but were sold out. We were re booked flying through San Francisco, missing out on flying on qantas, which is what I had paid for since they are a premium airline. We were booked on virgin America and then United for the international flight. United charged us each for 2 bags totalling $150 each, despite we booked a ticket with qantas which allows 2 bags each. Virgin America honoured our 2 bags, but united refused to. United also has service and aircraft which do not match the levels of qantas which I has specifically sought out. I could not eat some of the food because of the poor quality, and this is something I’ve never done before on an international flight. Additionally their were a lack of amenities on both flights, and no food vouchers despite our travel delay of over 5 hours. This whole ordeal has cost me money, worktime, and created a lot of stress to where I have had to cancel meeting on my arrival in Sydney."
Pros: "Good service . Timothy was excellent . Hostess ."
Pros: "Excellent flight. No complaints!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then moved to the next morning at 6am. Before we got to the hotel, the flight was pushed back to 8am. All for mechanical reasons. We've flown this route before, and have had an abnormally high number of mechanical issues. They seem to use older planes for these shorter flights, and it really shows. Technology could really help ease these situations. American's app does not allow you to look at rebooking options, so we had to stand in line for a solid 30 minutes to speak to an agent. Since it was the last flight of the night, there were only 3 agents there to help an entire plane's worth of people. Calling American didn't help. They couldn't help with hotel/food vouchers. These types of vouchers seem like something else that could be distributed through the app or electronically, eliminating the need to stand in line and grow increasingly frustrated. To add to the fun, the vouchers were not event enough to get a hot dog and drink for dinner, then a coffee and pastry for breakfast. Once we got the vouchers, trying to get to the hotel was a disaster. They had 1 van, so they could get about 10 people every 30 minutes. We just took and Uber, and were eating in the restaurant by the time others were still arriving from the shuttle. There was no one from American there to help coordinate with the hotel or shuttle. We were like blind sheep wandering around looking for the van. Finally, arrive for the flight the next day, and they start boarding about 10 minutes before the 8am takeoff time. So, of course, we were late getting off the ground. Then, when we arrived in Dallas, our gate was occupied by another plane, so we got to sit on an old plane for an extra 30 minutes until another gate opened up for us. Really, other than crashing, not much else could have gone wrong. Made American look completely incompetent...which is happening more the more we use them. Next time, I'll pay a higher fare to fly with Southwest."

Cons: "The plane departed at least 15 minutes late but the departure time was never updated to indicate the flight was delayed...even when it was ten minutes past the beginning of boarding and the plane had not even arrived yet. Felt like an exercise to improve flight scorecard performance. The flight landed at least fifteen minutes early...but we didn't have a gate..and ended up departing the planeapproximately on time...but planeside checked baggage took almost thirty additional minutes to finally return to the plane full of waiting customers. Felt way too long....and the ground crew didn't seem to appreciate that most people had a connection..."
