Pros: "Took and landed and did not die. All Way on time."
Cons: "Old seats and lousy food choices as most airlines have now."
Pros: "Even with a delay it was nice"
Cons: "Nothing to say here"
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: "The face masks were great. Free wifi was very nice. Inflight entertainment were recent movies."
Pros: "everything period"
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."
Pros: "I didnr like they charged 75 euro to carry on luggage"
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 plane"
Cons: "Over an hour delay"
Pros: "Legroom, seat, WiFi, price"
Cons: "Seat did not recline. Only snacks are chips. Terrible screen."
Pros: "Excellent I felt very comfortable and happy"
Cons: "Just the food"
Pros: "comfortable seating space."

Pros: "Very nice and professional hostesses."
Cons: "Sound was not great in purchased headphones."
Pros: "Great crew and movie options."
Cons: "The passenger in front of me was rude, but that's not the Jetblues problem."
Pros: "On time, what else do you need to know?"
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment is lacking."
Cons: "Tv was broken"
Pros: "Seating is spacious, food was okay, entertainment was sufficient but not the best. Overall I was impressed with Jet Blue and will most likely fly with them again in future."
Cons: "Didn't like a huge argument taking place between one family which held the flight up by at least 30 minutes. The crew were very patient with this family, but the passengers were not. I think the family should have been removed and asked to take another flight so that my flight could leave on time. It made everyone very nervous because we didn't know to what extent this conflict would escalate, so we had to sit listening to 3 or 4 members of the family arguing and constantly removing passports from luggage and going back and forth in and out of the plane. One member of this family actually entered the cockpit, which unnerved me because of the risks with terrorists these days. The family appeared to be of muslim descent."
Cons: "Tv did not work"
Pros: "No complaints. Quite happy with jetblue. I will fly with them again."
Pros: "The ease which they handle boarding"
Pros: "Crew were very nice, snacks and drinks were very nice, good inflight entertainment."
Cons: "Our plane left 90 minutes late after sitting on the tarmac for an hour because there were NO PILOTS. Cmon. That’s absurd."
Cons: "Every thing are great thx"
Pros: "Lost my luggage and were not helpful and if was my sisters wedding"
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!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and there is more room on jet blue than united. Flight even arrived early"
Pros: "Lots of room"
Cons: "Cooperation with Emirates seemed not to be that well established"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, snacks were plentiful, there was a nice selection of movies."
Cons: "None. Lost my wallet but that was not JB's fault :O"
Pros: "I just like the way the crew attended to make you more comfortable in your flight."
Pros: "Snacks. Wifi"
Cons: "This is my fourth flight with JetBlue, ALL four times the flight was delayed 1-4 hours each. It seems like it’s an occurring theme for JetBlue. The crew were in a bad mood, did not want to help at all."
Pros: "My child had a very good escorted flight the attendants were very attentive and knowledgeable of my child's needs I highly recommend and if anyone needs an escorted flight they definitely will not regret it"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "A super thanks to the staff member who expedited our boarding pass otherwise we eould have missed our flight due to snow delays. Great flight and very smooth landing."
Cons: "No USB Food is fine considering it is a value priced airline."
Pros: "Well trained flight attendant crew."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No one checked our boarding passes... I waved a piece of paper, and all three of us went thru the entrance to security. We had tad pre- checked passes but since no one looked, we had to wait on a line for 20 minutes. Pre- check line? Nom- existent."
Pros: "Over all Good!!"
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: "The flight crew was amazing and very attentive to my 2 year old daughter. Very friendly service."
Cons: "During the boarding process I was not made aware that I was able to board earlier because I had a child. When I asked a crew member about it she had an attitude and just waved me through. I felt this waa very rude. Not to mention the flight was already an hour late. That issue just further irritated the situation."
Cons: "Great flight but old regional jet"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and personable"
Cons: "for a long ride maybe better cushions"
Cons: "Very late and boarded too long before leaving the gate."
Pros: "Quick boarding, extra space to put things in front of you"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than an hour. My seat's entertainment system was broken, so an 8 hour flight with not much to do other than sleep."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was quite bad"
Cons: "The flight from. JFK to Barcelona was delayed as well. Their computers were down in Atlanta. So everyone had to have their name hand typed into a computer when boarding. Then the pilot said that our bags are usually weighed and computerized for even distribution on the plane. That system was also down, so we sat on the runway waiting for that problem to be fixed. When we arrived at Barcelona, I unpacked and discovered a jacket and pants in my luggage were wet. The only place that could have happened was at JfK during their rain storm and the luggage weight issue."
Pros: "There were actual meals served on the flight. They were pretty good. Free movies available."
Cons: "There was one cranky flight attendant. The seats don’t recline quite enough to be able to sleep."
Pros: "Complimentary beverages."
Cons: "Chicken and pasta for dinner"
Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "Plane boarded late, took off late, arrived late. Boarding was confusing and slow."
Pros: "Very nice stewardess on this plane. Seating was excellent."
Cons: "Crew was not apologetic after we missed connecting flight due to technical difficulties with their plane. I was re-routed to Barcelona and then a very budgetary Airlines to Athens which was ridiculously tight again with seating and flight was almost an hour late. Luggage didn't come until following day. And to top it off, I thought I would be flying with KLM on both legs!"
Pros: "Direct flight to Prague ; crew was very courteous and apologetic for being late"
Cons: "The seat could not recline (26F) and for a long overnight flight of 9 hrs it was very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Never told why we were delayed by more than 90 minutes"
Pros: "Nice crew, clean plane"
Cons: "Stuck in hot plane for an hour because of plane traffic. Not really deltas fault but c’mon"
Cons: "Paid extra for a seat that didn't have any extra leg room. The entertainment system was broken for the whole plane during the first 2 hours."
Pros: "The crew members were so kind and friendly. I actually did feel more at ease and made my journey more enjoyable. Specifically, was were traveling with guitars and they gave us no hesitation to board early in order to Stowe our instruments safely. They were very pleasant during serving and with requests. The offerings of movies and TV were excellent and extensive."
Cons: "The meal really wasnt very good. But the snacks and beverages we're quite good. Not sure if it is related but the check in/luggage drop process was quite slow."
Pros: "Nice and helpful crew, fast service."
Cons: "The food was not good, the breakfast was tiny. Who wants a sweet muffin for breakfast!?! It was a very shaky flight. We sat in the back rows which might have done things worse. Not comfortable at all."
Pros: "Breakfast was quite good, rest of the food was maximum average like on the other Delta flights I flew on this travel."
Cons: "The seats in business class are horrible in flat bed mode. The crew did not pay much attention, was quite bored, not well organized, service was less than average. They forgot the coffee for breakfast although they had only to care for 8 people."
Cons: "They ran out of blankets, earphones on the flight"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and the landing also was very good. The selection of movie are plenty."
Pros: "Smooth flight; on time; easy check-in"
Cons: "Food was o.k., but not great"
Cons: "The crew was great and the flight came in early. I wish there was a better food selection."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Pros: "We left and arrived early. Smooth flight overall just a great experience"
Cons: "We couldn’t have peanuts. Not really a negative but"
Pros: "I have no complaints. Not on"
Cons: "My seat ,the distance to get to the gate, The wheelchair l No window The distance I had it walk to get to my seat I was told this was the row behind the break after the exit row. I was not I’ve been with you before and have not any of these problems No more"
Cons: "Wouldn't let us check in til right before so our family was split all over the plane"
Pros: "I paid 60 bucks for an emergency row exit, take get some extra leg room and space so that I would be fresh when I arrived in Munich. However KLM allowed a passenger — who did not pay for the emergency row to sit next to me because he needed the extra space because he was a liarge man, and clearly didn’t fit very well in the economy seats. Thus I I lost all the extra space and actually would of preferred a regular economy seat. that would’ve been more preferential then paying $60 and getting less space than I would’ve had it in a regular economy. I understand the other passengers comfort was important and if that was the case he should’ve paid $60 as well."
Cons: "I did not get a choice of seat for the one and a half hour flight from Amsterdam to Munich and I sat in a middle row for the first time in 20 years."
Pros: "Timely, clean"
Cons: "A little chaotic at boarding time"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early. Dinner quality was good Crew was very professional"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything escept the seat that was too small. I also had problems with the entertainment when trying to see movies."
Cons: "Seats too small ant could not watch Movies beacause the screen was defective."
Pros: "Personality and charm of the flight attendants made it an especially relaxing trip."
Pros: "Everything is good except our lunch as described below."
Cons: "They ran out of chicken breast in our lunch packages, so the stewardess went back to get it. After 10 minutes she still did not show up, we turned on the help light, and still no one came. Finally she passed by and we reminded her the 2 chicken breast lunch packs, she said : "Sorry, I've forgotten about them" and ran back to get them for us."
Cons: "Terrible baggage check and security lines (even Pre-Check!) at JFK Teeminal 1 (AirFrance)."
Pros: "Smooth flight in time. Didn't realize would have to go thru another TSA security check point. Otherwise smooth flight, great communication from the captain."
Cons: "Cramped seats and the food wasn't that great. Plus final meal was served late which lead to quick eating and feeling rushed."
Pros: "We landed earlier than expected"
Cons: "Bathroom was very smelly"
Pros: "Crew was great. The video game quiz re knowledge of cities worldwide was entertaining and educational"
Pros: "I had a great seat (exit row) with lots of legroom. They provided a free breakfast, and it was actually pretty good. A few hours later i was hungry and tried to buy some food but the cabin crew just gave my another breakfast item. The flight arrived on time, and the luggage was delivered a few minutes after I arrived at the baggage area."
Cons: "Nothing. It was a very good experience."
Cons: "they charge 300$ extra for a 14 year old child and dont give any service for the payment, they say it is to bring the child on and off the plane even though he can travel alone and has done it many times with other air lines. drive the parents uo the wall, make them wait endless time, and then they comlaine that thay have no time tofor the child and leave him standing with out even letting him to seat with the other air lines a child of 12 can travel alone."
Pros: "Lots of great food n free new movies! Crew was polite and on top of their stuff :)"
Cons: "Seats were cramped, very uncomfortable."
Cons: "The gate for the connecting flight from NY to Rome wasn't posted at the terminal or available via the Delta aps. The Kayak AP didn't have it either. I found out late that it was practially at a different airport. With less than an hour I had to take a bus to a different terminal, walk through, exit onto the street, cross the street and walk down the block to a different terminal. Then I had to re-enter through security (where the line was wrapped back to the front doors). Had the flight not been delayed for mechanical issues I would have missed it. My flights were purchased through Delta. If Delta uses different airlines they should post gate information on their web sites."
Pros: "Flew in past no problem this trip seats were very close when person in front reclined his chair it touched my knees. Not enough leg room."
Cons: "Not enough leg room, knees hurt difficult to sleep. Also booked flight 3 months in advance so we could sit together as family. At gate they put my husband 20 rows separate from us. Surprised by this, I thought Delta was a better airline. Staff on plane was courteous and worked hard for entire trip."
Pros: "We were late leaving and missed our very tight connection at JFK. When we went to an agent we found we had been already rebooked on another flight through Detroit arriving 2.5 hours later than original. Our luggage was also rerouted to follow our flights and was there in Phoenix!"
Cons: "45 minutes is too tight a connection in JFK when you have to change terminals even if the flight were on time!"
Pros: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"
Pros: "The passenger seated next to me with a sense of humor about our situation."
Cons: "For some reason when I booked my flight, for this leg of it, I had "get seat assignment at gate". Once I got my seat assignment I thought I had a window seat: however, when I boarded the plane, I realized that I was in the very last seat of the plane in the window position, but no window. I was crammed in next to a wall and claustrophobic the whole way as I couldn't see anything, couldn't recline at all because behind me was the bathroom, and the engine roared at times in my ears to where I couldn't hear the passenger next to me when we tried to have conversation as the engine was right outside my "wall". We joked, when we could hear each other, that we must've pissed someone at Delta off the last time we flew them. I have no idea why I had to get my seat assignment at the gate for this particular flight, or why I was put in the 'flying coffin' seat, but it made for a very unpleasant experience. Why even have that seat in the plane? Everyone pays a lot of money to fly these days and deserves better than that seat when doing so. just take those two seats out and give everyone else a little more leg room = much better passenger experience for everyone...my suggestion if Delta really cares about the quality of passenger experience."
Pros: "The meal and service were excellent. The cabin crew was very attentive. They tried multiple times to fix the in flight entertainment when it stopped working. (Note: this flight was operated by Air France)."
Cons: "The economy seats were a tad small for someone that is 6'3" (my knee hit the seat in front of me). Also the inflight entertainment stopped working properly halfway through the flight."
Cons: "food made me sick, the seat wouldn't move back, the screen for the "entertainment" was out of focus"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, the service and the food was great."
Pros: "The new plane!"
Cons: "Hmmm, everything. First we didn’t get the seats we selected, then we had to pay an extra 800 for my family to sit together. Took about an hour waiting on the tarmac. Then to top it off American Airlines broke my stroller and NO apology. Never again with a third party site or American Airlines"
Cons: "Very cold cabin despite request to make it warmer, making it impossible to sleep. Food was cheap, carb-heavy fare - rice, crackers, a roll, sugar dessert bisquets all in one meal."
Pros: "Great service and clean airplane."
Pros: "Crew serving was bad"
Cons: "Quality of food not good"
Pros: "Dinner and breakfast very good."
Cons: "Seating was random. I was place between 2 single travelers meanwhile other rows had only one person in them. Eventually I changed seats. But I should have been able to pick seats at check-in or been more spread out."
Pros: "arrival to the destination"
Cons: "booking through kayak was a nightmare. they serve no purpose othan than to collect a fee and add zero value and provide no support after the transaction. it is pointless to use this service as no one at Kayak can help you after the purchase, and we all know airlines are useless when it comes fo customer service. never again! american airlines was even worse with their customer service when trying to get seat selections preserved when the airline was updated from British to American airlines. American airlines lied over the phone and was even more rude in person. JOKE"
Pros: "Overall, the flight wasn’t pretty good. Not terrible, not excellent."
Cons: "The seats are incredibly uncomfortable. Even paying for extra legroom did not make up for the lack of comfort."
Cons: "We waited on the check - in line for 3 hours because only 2 customer service reps were there to check-in customers. In 3 hours, only 2 people were assisted, causing us to miss our flight. I was traveling with my infant daughter on her first flight, I wasn't able to nurse her or change her. What a terrible experience. Are you working with American Airlines to improve their customer service? Surely, because you offer their flights in your site you support their practices. I just wanted a comfortable and reliable flight for my family. It's been very frustrating so far..."
Pros: "The flight was fine once we took off, but we sat on the runway for over two hours before we were able to take off. Also, being expected to pay extra for a seat sucks!"
Cons: "The flight was fine. The selection of films was excellent, lots to choose from including some very recent releases."
Pros: "Everything was on time and had a early arrival east a great flight the crew we're friendly and all crews we're on too of there game thanks AA"
Pros: "Friendly airport check-in staff who accommodated by changing our seats so we sat together. Boarding was smooth and timely. Best of all, seat overhead bins were empty so could store carry-on; This was unusual. Flight was great, but I love flying. Cockpit crew provided status updates, and captain's apology made the late departure more understandable. Deplaning process went smoothly also."
Cons: "After everyonel was timely boarded waiting to push away from the gate, announcement was that the captain was not even in the airport. Flight delayed almost an hour. Seat would not recline, not even an inch so basically sat upright entire flight to London. One has to 'flag' staff if seen as they walked past thru the main cabin. No announcement which area to collect ones luggage, nor staff there to explain, or guide. Forget staff assistance, apparently not a priority with AA."
Pros: "Quite new plane, clean. Some of the staff were friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed vecause there was no pilot for one hour. We missed connecting flight and ended up with several delayed flights, so our 11 hour trip turned out to be 32 hour long. Also, they messed up with food order, but after some time they managed to bring suitable food from business class. Some of the staff was unfriendly and whining. And our party of three was scattered around the plane, other families sitting nearby too. A little bit greedy company selling seat selection option when they could arrangeit nicely, but just don’t do it in order to get few people to pay for otherwise normal thing."
Pros: "It got me here."
Cons: "Apparently codeshare purchases are non upgradable, so my airline status was irrelevant."
Pros: "The crew were amazing! The flight was smooth"
Cons: "I was on row 24 and my seat did not recline and the person in front of me seemed to recline more than anyone else did. Could not Get comfortable"
Pros: "The plane took off and landed on time. Because airlines have so games their system by setting expectations of on time arrival so low that it is nearly impossible to not exceed them."
Cons: "The plane was so old the overhead lights didn’t work in our section (who failed to check that??). The overhead bins fell open at landing and things almost fell on people’s heads. There was subpar entertainment options that hadn’t been updated since at least the 90s, which was made even less acceptable since it was literally the only option for entertainment on a 7+ hour flight when none of the overhead lights worked. For a ticket that cost more than $1200, the failure of the airline on nearly all levels to provide standard services was completely unacceptable."
Cons: "Flight attendants were a little abrupt. Could have been friendlier."
Pros: "Entertainment choices, no additional charge for wine, food was good"
Cons: "we were packed in like sardines on American airways ..NOT British airways. I’ve flown overseas on European flights before and there is more attention to comfort. We sat in front of the lavatory and could not sleep because every time someone used it, the light flashed in our eyes and the flush was quite loud. I paid extra for the seats we had but did not know they were right by noisy bright rest room."
Pros: "Service was quick, comfort flight, excellent service. This was the best flight so far."
Cons: "To many kids crying, it was loud."
Pros: "Very pleasant crew"
Cons: "Booked flight with my sister 6 months before departure, paid for both tickets at the same time to find out seat assignment not together.... that could be understable only if ticket is purchased at the last minute, but that was not applicable to our situation..... we could not switch seats during flight"
Pros: "The stewardesses were very polite and helpful"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and organized"
Cons: "No face masks or ear protection made sleep difficult"
Pros: "It had 1980 common program and not an in seat outdated"
Pros: "Timely, good service."
Cons: "Would have helped to know that IB4158 was also AA44."
Pros: "On time flight. Cheap ticket"
Cons: "Rickey seats. When woman in row ahead got up our drinks spilled. No personal screens and small shared screen too far away. Online entertainment did not work. Special meal came frozen. Water bottle frozen solid and only as it began to leak on floor did I realize ice had broken bottle. really primitive."
Pros: "Decent legroom"
Cons: "My TV screen stopped working mid-flight, and the crew was indifferent - tried to reset it, it didn't help, but they didn't check back. When I asked them about it, they shrugged. I had to suggest moving me to another seat, which they did - but they should have suggested it, not me."
Cons: "Outdated airplanes"
Pros: "Absolutely no part of the flight was comfortable or enjoyable."
Cons: "The plane itself was clearly an older model, lacking many amenities I’ve come to expect flying coach. The overhead compartments were too small for larger carryon luggage, and no one on the crew alerted passengers to this. Thus, many passengers had to go against the traffic of those still boarding to find space for luggage. My seat was at the back of the plane so I had to spend close to 15 extra minutes walking back to the front against boarding passengers to find a place to put my luggage. A simple warning from the crew when I boarded would have prevented mine and many others unnecessary trouble simply boarding. During a very turbulent flight, the captain nor the crew made any announcements about turbulence, our safety, or our progress. Also during the flight, one of the flight attendants got into an awkward verbal spat with one of the passengers. Completely unprofessional and bothersome. Additionally, I had fallen asleep when dinner was being first served, but woke up before it was finished. A flight attendant approached me and asked if I’d like a dinner to which I replied “Yes”. The flight attendant never returned with a dinner for me, thus I did not eat the dinner, which I had paid for. Lastly, and perhaps most disturbing, was what transpired when a passenger had a medical emergency. With no warning, all of the airplane lights turned on and a loud “CODE RED” was announced over the sound system. Imagine being a sleeping passenger like myself, during a very turbulent flight, to be suddenly awoken to bright lights and a CODE RED shouted loudly over the PA. I’m not overexaggerating when I say that I was preparing for the worst. A truly terrifying moment that I am certain was shared with many others on board. To make matters even worse, as a flight attendant rushed to find a first aid kit (which she had trouble finding) she opened up the compartment over my partners seat and dropped a passengers ipad on her head. The flight attendant did return to apologize, but it was little consolation compared to the stress and panic the crew created. I have flown many times, and this was easily the worst flight of my life. American Airlines should be ashamed of the conditions they put their passengers in and they have lost two customers for good."
Cons: "We left two hours after scheduled departure bc 1) the plane was late from prior flight and had to be cleaned, 2) engine check delayed the flight, 3) strong winds forced the airport (JFK) to use only one runway for departures and so on top of our plane delays we were delayed an extra half hour bc of airplane traffic. No entertainment onboard, meaning no screen on back of seat in front for movies, tv shows, etc. Food options were poor, especially breakfast (too much sugar content in all contents of “continental breakfast” pack."

Cons: "Delayed 1 hour because crew announced there was a discrepancy between # passengers boarding central records. Flight crew didn't do anything to comfort passengers during this. Captain made one announcement about turbulence once at the beginning but nothing else for 1/2 hour or longer long turbulence period. Crew took away tray without asking. Ran out of water. Doors did not open for quite awhile after docking but crew said nothing. Seats so small one had to keep elbows glued to body to eat without touching neighbors. Felt like cattle being driven to slaughter. Min"
