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: "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"
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."
Cons: "The flight attendants didn't seem too thrilled with me wanting 2 of the free beverages. And when I woke up my complimentary water bottle was gone."
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..."
Cons: "The flight was amazing. I love JetBlue left on time and arrived in time."
Pros: "The attendants were friendly and hellpful."
Cons: "Some sort of entertainment. More comfortable seats."
Pros: "Good boarding. The info I was given thru Kayak seemed to indicate my cheap ticket did not include any drinks or snacks, so I was prepared with my own for this long flight. So cookies/pretzels and juice, coffee, etc. were a pleasant surprise, Also the middle seat was empty."
Cons: "Clearer info on what was included in my ticket."
Cons: "Communication from you all. I missed my flight because of the terrible instructions and communication"
Pros: "Crew was excellent !! They ran a tight ship!"

Pros: "Very comfortable the crew were exlaint"
Cons: "Nothing it was great"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Seats were okay a bit tight, but, fine."
Cons: "Cancun flight was delayed 24 hours in advance, westjet did not hold connecting flight despite advance notice, being expedited through CBS and reaching gate before departure time"
Pros: "The pilots made the trip in great time. The landing was smooth."
Cons: "The flight from Tampa to Toronto was delayed for 2 hours, with no explanation. Therefore I miss my connection to London. This was my first time flying WestJet. When I booked I thought it would be easier then flying out of the States, like I usually do. Not really in my opinion the walk from aircraft to aircraft is so long in Toronto. This was a surprise to me this part of the journey. Will think twice before booking again."
Cons: "Your website did autofillmwith the passenger name and I had to pay extra to get the bame changed. Pretty bad. Not using your site ever. Thanks"
Pros: "westjet is the only way to go."
Pros: "On time. Smooth."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "Booked our seats 24 hours in advance and could not get seats together. Airline expects us to pay extra for reasonable expectations as that"
Pros: "The over all star rating should have five stars. I mistakenly pressed something and it went to one And I could not figure out how to get it back to five. Everything was on time which I so appreciated."
Pros: "The flight left on time, boarding was orderly, I got a window seat."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable (very little leg and arm room, chairs didn't recline at all), WiFi was unavailable."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and very helpful. Made sure you were well looked after. The entertainment was top notch as well, but would have preferred a tablet or seat screen for international flights."
Cons: "I upgraded to Plus for my flight and I expected more leg room, because I am 6'5. I felt cramped and couldn't sleep. Emergency exit would have been better. My neck hurt after the flight because you have to look down at your phone the whole time while watching movies. Food was mediocre, it wasn't top of the line. Wont fly westjet again."
Cons: "Freezing cold flight. They charge for everything, including baggage. Won’t use this airline again."
Pros: "The plane was clean, comfortable and the staff were good."
Cons: "WestJet was 30 minutes late to board. Also, if you're going Int'l during a peak moment, give yourself at least 2 hours to process your entry. It's crazy how many people are going thru JFK."
Pros: "Really a pretty good trip in my opinion."
Cons: "Not too thrilled with the fact that only a couple of drinks and light snacks are free."
Pros: "No hassles, friendly folks, on time and baggage wait ok"
Pros: "pleasant staff"
Cons: "no record of pre-purchased meal internet cost $10 and was very very slow-unusable zero seating in Westjet gates (PHX)"
Cons: "First leg of flight was cancelled. Plane didn't come in at midnight as scheduled, so was not available for departure at 6:20 AM. WestJet did not inform anyone - including Kayak. Apps westjet & kayak said departure was on time, but there was no plane."
Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "One of the flight attendents was rude. The head rests on the chairs didn't work. The chairs where uncomfortable. The plane was delayed. The drink selection was poor. The overall general westjet hospitality was just way below average and I felt like the company is turning so cheap I was worried they may have double sold my seat on the plane."
Pros: "Friendly staff, superb landing in difficult weather."
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays. No WIFI or on board entertainment."
Pros: "The stewardess serving drinks was very pleasant. Thank You"
Cons: "having to walk outside the plane in the snow to get on the bus and vise versa. it was cold and I got a bad cold...."
Pros: "THE YOUNG PERSON FROM GRAND PRAIRIE AB WHO SET NEXT TO ME WAS A GOOD TRAVEL COMPANION"
Cons: "THE SEATS WERE MUCH TOO SMALL FOR TWO MEN BOTH OVER 250 POUNDS TO SIT NEXT TO EACH OTHER"
Cons: "avoid the westjet encore flights. planes are small and noisy. if you sit next to a window it’s impossible to comfortably put both feet on the ground. if you pay for plus seating on an encore flight you’re basically paying to get on and off first. there’s no extra room and would be more fairly priced at $10."
Pros: "Crew & direct flight"
Cons: "Food selection & entertainment"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "I preordered a Chopped Leaf salad and would do again. I like that West Jet loads back of plane first."
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn’t available from Vancouver to Toronto."
Pros: "Friendly people+ great service"
Cons: "On my ticket I had my wife, my mother-in-law and my two kids guess what, my wife and kid was marked as children and my one month was marked as adult, because of this we had to waste so much time in fixing this, the flight was early morning and we had planned to buy the breakfast from the airport because of this we couldn’t even buy breakfast we had to literally run for the flight"
Pros: "a very calm flying experience. no bells and whistles but consistently friendly and mostly efficient"
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The plane was old so no entertainment, food was not good, could not sit in area waiting for flight, no chairs left and I was 5ere. Very early. Travelling is not great anymore, the crew try’s their best I know."
Pros: "Glad I could rent a tablet"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "It was a comfortable experience, the flight crew were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The lack of space beneath the seat in front of me can be frustrating, especially when one is required to push their small bag underneath it."
Cons: "Seems like all the sandwiches have cheese in them not good when your allergic how about a tuna no cheese"
Cons: "We were delayed by roughly two hours, sat on the tarmac with no internet or other entertainment, services etc. This made it difficult as I was looking to get home on time and complete work in the air."
Pros: "Got to my destination..."
Cons: "Westjet will nickel and dime you for everything. Did a +9h flight from Vancouver to London and no meal is included during the whole flight. They keep trying to upsale you for everything. Not only is the food expensive it is also real garbage. Flight was delayed by 75 minutes and nearly missed my connection. Of course no checked baggage is included in your already expensive ticket. You have to fork in another 30$ for the privilege of checking luggage. WestJet pretends to offer 200-300$ cheaper plane tickets compared to the competition, but this is false. I found plenty of other flights for same or even cheaper prices with quality airline companies like Lufthansa or Air Canada that include a meal and checked baggage and other perks, but in my case I had already booked. I really recommending you looking for other airline companies for any flight that is not short haul. WestJet's slogan is an airline company with owner that care... Whatever the hell that means. Maybe someone can explain? WestJet brags about it's outstanding customer service while at the same time cutting every corner possible on service. Kind of a contradiction."
Cons: "Toronto connection takes forever!!"
Pros: "On the way back boarding started early and we left earlier than planned."
Cons: "Boarding has become quite the painstaking endeavor since all checked luggage is payed because now travellers try to fit everything in carry ons to save money which leads to everyone trying to put their stuff in the overhead bins. This isn't exclusive to one carrier though."
Pros: "Nothing. Lame service."
Cons: "Delays and no compensations"
Pros: "The snacks were good"
Cons: "They lost my checked sleeping bag which forced me to buy another one before my backpacking trip. They refused to refund me for it costing me an extra few hundred dollars to replace it. To include I paid an extra eighty dollars for my trip because apparently I requested window seats which I wasn't provided for my return flight home! Be prepared to lose your luggage and don't expect a refund!"
Pros: "Wheel chair support."
Cons: "All Air hosts..no hostesses.No wine in International flight."
Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"
Pros: "Check in was fast, on time, landed early, entertainment worked"
Pros: "The attendants were very cordial and considerate."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."
Cons: "At WestJet, Canadian PR are not eligible for on-line check in. WestJet make Canada PR travel on WestJet so hard. Air Canada, United all can do online check in for Canada PRs. Don't know why WestJet is so stupid and ridiculous... In flight, no flight map is available. So out-of-date."
Pros: "How expedite everything was and how helpful the aa personnel at the airport were. Flight attendants were efficient and friendly."
Pros: "The plane was new and very comfortable. Service fair."
Cons: "The food was horrid."
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!"
Cons: "Waited 2 hours for take off."
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: "overall okay"
Cons: "malaysia airlines only allows one check in? didnt give any headphones for tv"
Pros: "Great food and movie selection - awesome distraction from my usual flight anxiety."
Pros: "fly was on time, good service, food and entertainment."
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"
Pros: "Economy seats were comfy Free movies"
Pros: "it was an american airline flight. good trip"
Pros: "One flight attendant was completely uninterested! Others were good despite the delay."

Cons: "There was no phone charger at the seat."
Pros: "The pilot was amazing!"
Pros: "Leg room Kind stewards"
Cons: "No gluten free meal options"
Pros: "Movies, wine"
Cons: "When checking in the staff was so incredibly rude, nonexistent during the whole check in process that it led to several people missing their flights or almost missing it. I had to run around asking for someone to help the long line of people including me who were all in danger of missing their flight because no one was around to help. And then when I finally do get checked in using the now kiosk only option for the plebeian class while anyone above economy gets to talk to real people (way to highlight the class divide guys) I missed my check in time by 5 minutes and was told by the kiosk to find an agent. Then I go running around looking for an agent. I find one and she says you missed your flight. I told her I still have 45 minutes to make it, and she rudely just tells me to get in another line to pay for a new ticket. LUCKILY someone in the priority line saw I was having a problem, a customer not an agent, and she told me to try to talk to someone on her side. After 3 agents told me no one finally told me yes. I made my flight but just by a hair. If the agents would have been around to help or been willing to help me from the moment I spoke to them this would not have been a problem. Thanks for almost ruining Christmas for me. When I spoke to others everyone told me they always have issues with AA. Will never fly AA again."
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: "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."
