Cons: "Enjoyed the trip."
Pros: "I liked that the seat reclined, access to some movies and shows, I LOVED the free WiFi. Snack were good too."
Cons: "As soon as I got onto the plane, a male flight attendant rudely told me there was no room for my carry on. I explained how my holiday would be starting pretty much as soon as I got off the flight and I wouldn’t have time to wait for a bag to come off the flight. He then replied how that wasn’t his problem. I said I would put the bag under my seat and he said if he saw it under my seat he would take it. He didn’t help me try to find room or do anything helpful at all. I took my bag and found plenty of space to store it. I was very displeased and shocked how I was treated. Also the Dunkin’ Donuts coffee was undrinkable. No where near what actual Dunkin’ coffee taste like. I also didn’t like that they tried to charge me money for the headphones."
Cons: "I had a very bad experience with Jet blue, they send me an email that the flight was still on time which was supposed to be at 11:am on September 21st , when we arived to the airport we found out that we were late for the flight so we missed our connecting flight, and we couldn’t get another flight to the destination, we paid for a full week and we won’t get there until Monday lm looking to get my money for All my losses, the Hotel in New York $254 the connecting flight and the coast of our resort, and all the aggravation the we got because of your scheduling, my name is Rola Barkho my address is 259 Wilson ave , Paramus nj 07652. Email address is rpperfectimage@aol. Com or my phone # is 201-913-9349 I will appreciate your concern. By the way it was our 28th years anniversary"
Cons: "I had a late evening flight and my neighbors chatted very loudly the entire flight. The gentleman’s seat was one row ahead but decided since there was an empty seat in our row he would sit with his girlfriend. The couple smelled of alcohol, not sure if they were served with more than one alcoholic beverage but it made the flight very uncomfortable. Even with my earphones on at a higher level I could still hear them."
Cons: "No blankets, no earphones, rude crew. Jet Blue used to be top notch, special. Now it’s just another packed crew with union attendants who do minimal and I mean minimal effort to make passengers happy."
Pros: "Very nice crew Love the free snacks"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The mad delays"
Pros: "courteous staff,,,, friendly....good updates from the captain on weather....routing...very efficient ground staff during checking in"
Cons: "all was OK"
Cons: "Poor service"
Pros: "The atmosphere was just right for flying except when I entered the Aircraft I was totally turned off when I encountered a woman and her child and her carry-on pieces was already established in my seat 2A. She did move when I requested but what got me annoyed she had me locked in my seat because all her belongings remained in the passage way making it difficult to make my way to the restroom. IN MY OPINION THIS WAS A SAFETY HAZARD. I had every reason to suspect that she is known to the captain because he came to greet her. ERROLD"
Cons: "NO EMPHASIS IS PLACED ON ENSURING THAT SAFETY IS CARRIED OUT. I HAVE HAD SEVERAL TRAVELLING EXPERIENCES ON A VARIETY OF AIRLINES AND THIS WAS THE WORST FOR SAFETY. UNFORTUNATELY I HAD TO MAKE USE OF THE RESTROOM AND HAD TO BE USING MY ATHELETIC SKILS TO GET BY. THIS REALLY SPOILT MY FLIGHT. MY FLIGHT # WAS 881 TO ST. LUCIA SEAT 2A. SAFETY SHOULD NEVER BE COMPROMISED EVEN IF FRIENDSHIP IS INVOLVED."
Cons: "The screen just did work properly. I was unable to use it."
Pros: "The planes the same the inflight menu screen is basically the same. So all the things I liked about Virgin are still there. The overhead announcements were done rather well. Personality and great voice. Bathrooms were clean... Still love the mood lighting. maybe coordinate it with the company colors?"
Cons: "Somehow it seems less... happy. I don't know why that is but the loss of the safety video we knew was coming with the name change... but I kinda miss that upbeat song and the positive energy it put into take off. Also can't really recall the uniforms. I used to like those."
Cons: "* Flight was delayed, no one's fault. * Wifi was free, which is a very nice JetBlue feature, but wifi was often slow. I'm not sure this could be improved. * Because the flight was long-ish and we had to taxi for an hour, my computer ran down, and there were no electrical outlets at the seats or even usable on the plane, because it was an old plane. I lost a couple of hours that I could have been working. * One of the flight attendants was actually rather rude. Without any warning, she waved her hand in front of my face to get my attention during beverage service. I could understand this, maybe, if I had not responded to a question (I was typing on my computer), but she hadn't even tried to ask me what I wanted, she just went for this very abrupt and aggressive attention-getting technique. She startled me, and I told her she had. She did not apologize."
Pros: "comfortable seating space."
Cons: "We missed our flight by 2min, and no one made an announcement informing us that they were about to leave."
Pros: "Great crew and movie options."
Cons: "The passenger in front of me was rude, but that's not the Jetblues problem."
Cons: "Tv was broken"
Pros: "No complaints. Quite happy with jetblue. I will fly with them again."
Pros: "The ease which they handle boarding"
Cons: "Every thing are great thx"
Pros: "Prior to our flight, our captain made a joke and everyone enjoyed it. The flight attendants were friendly. I enjoyed one of the snacks (Popcorners) and I have never had that as an option on any other flight before. (Although, food would have been a greater alternative.)"
Cons: "There was a little bit of turbulence, which is never fun. (However, the captain did set the expectation prior to each time.) I love when airplanes have personal tv monitors but I strongly dislike the fact that there was a charge for headphones, for the ability to listen. I did not buy any / have entertainment during my flight and CC appeared to be available, but did not work. If it did, I would have provided a higher rating."
Pros: "The flight crew was wonderful. It really makes a difference when the staff is friendly. They made my flight great!"
Cons: "Took off late Security line was a nightmare and TSA has no idea what they’re doing Vinyl plane seats are too hot"
Pros: "Flight was on time and there is more room on jet blue than united. Flight even arrived early"
Pros: "That we got there safe"
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of an coffee maker"
Pros: "The free wifi"
Cons: "The tv"
Pros: "Free wifi, easy boarding, friendly and quick service"
Cons: "Could have used more direction to help people know where to load their carryons so they didn't put them too far forward in the plane"
Pros: "Everything specially the crew members.very happy respectful ."
Cons: "The service friendly"
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to spend $300.00 USD on a hotel!!!"
Pros: "Extra room"
Cons: "Sitting on the runway for an hour"
Pros: "Fast, efficient, friendly service. Great crew"
Cons: "3 hour delay"
Pros: "Quick and easy flight. Pilot was nice."

Pros: "Crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5 hours due to maintenance issues."
Pros: "Nice plane. Could have used a plug."
Cons: "The food was ok. But worse than the food I had on the way to the us. I didn't get all of my boarding passes in NYC so I had to go get them in Orlando which ment changing airport terminal to get to the LAtam desk and back doing 1 hour and a half of TSA security check..."
Pros: "The boarding was easy. There was a bar lounge in the airport next to the boarding gate. The staff was not rude. I did not get kicked out of the plane in a choke hold, because it was overbooked."
Cons: "The plane seemed a bit tired. The controls in my flight entertainment did not work because the buttons were worn down. The seat head rest didn't not fold to the side for sleep support. There was no first class seating areas in the plane."
Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The shared screens."
Cons: "Seats are not designed for long haul flights"
Pros: "We landed early, it was fairly comfortable in coach for a very tall person, and there was good communication from the flight attendants and pilot with the passengers. A very pleasant experience overall, from someone who is a nervous flyer!"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "It was 3 hours delayed and we ended up with an aircraft that was in the hanger. The economy seats were really tight, more suitable for a 2-3 hour domestic flight, not for a transoceanic 7 hour flight. I paid $81 for my seat since AA did not let me choose my seat. $81 for a seat that was really uncomfortable and with very limited leg room. I felt ripped off. There were common screens as entertainment instead of individual ones, very obsolete. This will be the last AA flight I will take."
Pros: "Got to Paris. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Very tight seats that had minimal room to sleep. My knees hit the seat in front of me when sitting upright"
Cons: "FLIGHT DELAYED 3 hours, miserable uncomfortable plane- awful wines (grape juice) and not entertainment in flight-"
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system, comfortable seating, decent refreshment service for such a short trip."
Cons: "The flight didn't board until an hour and a half after the original scheduled time, and despite boarding quickly, we didn't take off for even longer. Because of the long wait, it would have been nice to have been offered a snack in addition to the beverage that was served during the flight."
Pros: "overall okay"
Cons: "malaysia airlines only allows one check in? didnt give any headphones for tv"
Pros: "In flight service was terrific. Cubby areas were somewhat cramped. Was expecting more room."
Cons: "The food selection was great but the food itself was over cooked. Disappointing."
Pros: "nothing since I didnt fly finnair"
Cons: "I did not like anything since both flight to and from was with airlines I actively decided i didnt want to fly with"
Cons: "Nowhere on my finnair reservariondid it say this flight was operated by American. I kept logging into finnair and it was telling me I had no reservation. Very frustrating!"
Cons: "No personal entertainment systems. I ordered a low lactose meal and got yogurt which is high in lactose!"
Cons: "The flight company's got changed to AA from Iberia but didn't get any email from Kayak. Send an email next time please."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and I was able to sleep."
Cons: "I didn't like having retro entertainment with no options."
Cons: "Could not buy snacks"
Cons: "They were not honest with the information given by stewardesses"
Pros: "My business class flight"
Cons: "Big lines for the kiosks to print out the boarding pass, after that another line to drop off the lauggages. We left late. Horrible food. Uncomfortable sits. NO INDIVIDUAL TV."
Pros: "Economy seats were comfy Free movies"
Pros: "it was an american airline flight. good trip"
Pros: "Pilot was good about keeping us informed regarding the delay in taking off. After boarding We were delayed 2 hours."
Cons: "Worst seat, legroom I've had in many years. Screens were few and too small and far away to be of any use."
Pros: "One flight attendant was completely uninterested! Others were good despite the delay."
Cons: "One poor attitude flight attendant."
Pros: "The cabin crew were absolutely outstanding."
Cons: "7 hour flights must have good entertainment facilities like individual screen wherein you can choose your own. I don't normally get a good sleep on planes so a good entertainment is a must for me..."
Pros: "The TVs/back of the chairs were great because they could shut off completely so there was no screen glare when you want to sleep, the headphone jack worked with good sound quality, and there was a decent movie selection. Staff was courteous and the food was fine."
Cons: "This flight itself was great overall. No complaints. The only thing I didn't like was that I'd wanted to book a return direct flight on American Airlines as well, but the price skyrocketed from a few hundred to over $2200, which is just outrageous, so I booked TAP Portugal instead. My friend paid under $600 round trip and it boggles the mind that the same flights shot up to over $2k... It's not realistic to expect customers to stay loyal to an airline that prices them out."
Pros: "why you have send email for survey I cancelled my trip do to emergency/ for sorry really sorry,"
Cons: "Tiny seats in Economy, BA on the way to New York was so much better! Faulty seat which wouldn't recline properly and faulty entertainment system!! Having to pay extra for seat choice and then getting a tiny with no leg space or side space, again the BA plane on the way out was much better"
Cons: "Very!! Dissatisfied & disappointed with AA. Finally took off over 3 hrs late. At that point everyone was thrilled that we were going versus being canceled. Had food in business class which tasted like it had been overcooked for three hours"
Pros: "Constantly good AA service"
Cons: "The chairs have to be better for a 7h flight"
Pros: "Very smooth flight with excellent crew!"
Cons: "There were no individual monitors at the seats."
Cons: "I paid $150 extra for 2 exit row seats thinking we could use the extra room on the long flight. Unfortunately, the exit row space was cut off by and smaller than a normal row! Our legs were extremely cramped by the time we got to Rome. We had no overhead storage, which was already small, so we had to put our carry-ons multiple rows behind us -- which made exiting the plane a pain. There wasn't any personal entertainment systems, just one tv per section. The food was sub par. The crew was nice enough, but I'll NEVER take American Airlines internationally again."
Pros: "The plane left on time and the flight crew were very courteous."
Cons: "Seats were hard and to close and not enough leg room. We had a new Airbus on an AA flight from San Francisco to Dallas that had wider seats that were softer and enough leg room. That was a great plane. There was no personal entertainment. Only one big screen coming out of the ceiling and playing a children's movie. Did not listen to it."
Pros: "Direct flight, convenient schedule"
Cons: "Ground delay at JFK, no personal entertainment system"
Pros: "It was five star all the way."
Pros: "It didn't crash"
Cons: "3 hour delay in take off and landing, malfunctioning door not weather caused the delay Moved to other gate and plane with blasts of cold air on passengers Stood on plane after landing Stood on bus waiting to be driven to exit point in terminal Missed the train that I had ticket for, bought online, so I lost the money and lost the day planned around the train schedule (plane was supposed to arrive at 7:10 and it landed after 10:00. I moved as quickly as possible through all stages, with no checked bags, cash in hand, but I missed a 12:30 train and failed to meet the guide lined up to meet me"
Pros: "Comfortable seating considering economy. Food decent."
Cons: "2 hour delay due to no captain available. Told us about it when we were supposed to be boarding."
Pros: "I have never felt so smushed in to a space for so long."
Cons: "Space between the seats"
Pros: "Crew were very nice and efficient"
Pros: "nice crew"
Cons: "no entertainment system. Even their in flight radio got messed up. seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "All was fine would be nice to have individual screens but that is minor"
Pros: "Smallest transatlantic plane ever! Too mich tirbulence for a plane this small on its way to Europe. I was expecting to be on Finnair and was on some crappy American Airline plane that just arrives to NY from Miami. Worst flight ever."
Pros: "It started with a unclear check-in process, proceeded with a multi-hour delayed flight with several reasons given for each return back to gate. Ended with us getting off the plane 4 hours after we were originally due to take off, a further hour delay before they said we could board again but then midway through that boarding we were told the flight was cancelled and no hotels were available and we'd need to return to check-in area to find out next steps. All this with our exhausted 4-year olds. Ended with us leaving the airport at 3 am. I truly never wish to fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "Check-in, communication, the plane (I can't recall the last time we flew in a 757 plane (3 and 3 in each row) with no TVs for a transatlantic flight! Finally the multi delays ending with a cancelled flight with no alternate flight immediately offered to all."
Cons: "The movies were watched were old movies; they could be updated."
Pros: "The initial price. Difficult flight."
Cons: "I did not get what I paid for and check in took two hours to figure out. I bought tickets on Kayak through Justfly.com for a Finnair flight and added an American Airlines (affiliate) frequent flyer number.and reserved my seats early.as I usually do and everything was confirmed by Justfly.com. No problems, right? I did not receive a check in notification. I used the Finnair trip number on my email but it said there was no flight found. I could not initially get hold of Just fly.com. when I did, they said I had to check in through American Airlines. That didn't work initially either. After getting a new trip number I was able to check in but our seats were changed and it was a red eye. When trying to get seats I noticed there are very few seats left. The seats I had selected were now open and would coat another $120 plus. I couldn't even get those. We wound up with some exit seats which seemed fine until my wife couldn't recline her seat. It was uncomfortable for both of us because she had to use my legs to prop hers onto. Im still on vacation so I haven't contacted American for a refund yet."
Pros: "Can't much think of anything. Gave the crew a break with the 'ok' only because I'm pretty sure none of this is their fault. They still smiled their way through this s*** assignment."
Cons: "We were assigned a Boeing 767. The seats were barely comfortable, even though I paid $129 to get "up to 6" more legroom" and snagged a bulkhead seat. (Is it me or do you want to start a revolution when you are just on the other side of the curtain where those on the other side are being served champagne, have large tv screens and fully reclining sleeper beds?). The food mediocre/unremarkable but heh, it's an airplane , the crew ok but uniforms dated and drab. The real letdown was the entertainment system. Or I shoudld say lack thereof. I was psyched that the seat was designated as having a charger. Yeah, if I'm carrying my car charger with me! Yikes!!! So, strike one. Then, NO ON DEMAND service of any kind, since this plane is not equipped with wifi, which would have given us the ability to watch on an iPad or other device. Strike two. And THEN, when you think, no this can't get worse, there are a strong of three 2ND RATE movies shown back to back. No choice, no watch when you want, in other words, no ON DEMAND. Oh, and did I mention the really really REALLY old pull-out remote control with a credit card phone on the flip side? STRIKE THREE! This was a Finnair booking through Kayak, but on an American Airlines code share. The gate at JFK was changed no less than 4 times, the final time, one hour before departure, from Gate 14 to Gate 45. Good thing I had left myself plenty of extra time! The check-in process at Finnair counter no less than a nightmare. Stood in line for 30 minutes, then told we had to go to "Line 1" and use one of the kiosks to print our boarding passes (we checked in online but were not given phone-board passes) and check our bags. This area was nothing short of pandemonium with agents yelling at us to form straight lines. Many of the kiosks were not working not working and there were not enough agents to help the throngs."
Pros: "Finally taking off"
Cons: "Will probably never fly out of JFK again-4 hour delay, poor communication from airport staff, 4 Gate changes you name it. Absolutely painful"
Pros: "Seats were okay. Only one hour flight comfortable. Good for the money."
Cons: "Walking up and down to get on/off the plane (small plane)"
Pros: "The flight was delayed 5 hours. We were late for our tour in Ireland!"
Pros: "The t was a nonstop"
Cons: "Old plane! No wifi, no ind TVs. Drinks are $8! Plus it was a code share with American so poorer service and no blueberry juice. I would not chose this flight again."
Pros: "We lost a full day with delays using american airlines /finair when flying to dublin. Their "free" sandwiches to hold us over is embarasssing. We then missed our plane because finair informes us after waiting online we needed to go to another terminal to check bags at american airline. That was not initially told to us and now we are spending over $1000 so we can fly tomorrow plus hotel room. It also affected a business trip to vegas which i needed to cancel. My experience was terrible with finair and american airlines with terrible customer support at the airport. Amazing how we need to pay another 1000 for terrible communication."
Cons: "Lack of communication from airlines Delays Forced to pay a return flight fee plus hotel fee due to finair inabilityty to communicate and direct customers to right terminal."
