Got to the airport at 2pm for a 345 flight and was delayed 3 times then cancelled. The line for jet blue assistance was about 1-2 hrs long. Was re booked for a flight to lax ( which was not my destination) then have to get an uber down to San Diego. Customer service was terrible and the lines were unbearable. Was my first time flying jet blue. Not sure if I would fly with them again.

They delayed boarding because they didn't want us to sit on the plane because we 'couldn't leave the airport early' but then we ended up taking off 20 minutes late. Jet bridge took 15 minutes to attach.

I love my non stop flight from JFK to SD. The flight was smooth, great movies/entertainment, snacks, and staff on the plane. I will definitely continue to fly Jet Blue!

Was a perfect flight for me. I was asked to check in my carry on bag but I didn't need to because I knew it would fit in the overhead bin and I found space for it on the plane. I recommend the plane staff should try to shuffle and move bags. Some passengers had bags in the overhead bin that could have been moved or put under the seat because they were small and taking up unecessary space.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
