Kudos to Alaska on their continued investments in new Boeing aircraft and upgraded satellite internet."
Cons: "The boarding process continues to be an absolute joke. I don’t know what the solution is, but Slow rude people continue to hold up 10-15 people at a time wrestling with their many carry on bags. This whole situation sure got worse when they started charging so much for checked bags."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "They have hot towels and unlimited snacks"

Pros: "Excellent flight attendants extremely helpful to make you comfortable"

Pros: "Great pilots who were very communicative. So glad the JFK to SEA route now has the newer planes with the mint layout."

Cons: "Enjoyed the trip."

Pros: "The plane looked brand new Everything thing worked TV WFi Excellent staff. Could not believe I got all this for JetBlue Basic fare."
Cons: "Always the boarding process. Nothing to do with JetBlue staff they were excellent Passengers need to understand and adhere to carry on restrictions"

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."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "The screen just did work properly. I was unable to use it."

Pros: "The legroom is fantastic in coach!"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment head phone jack didn’t work the best."

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: "In flight entertainment wasn’t working correctly"

Pros: "No complaints. Quite happy with jetblue. I will fly with them again."

Pros: "The ease which they handle boarding"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "The entertament options from new releases to tv shows was good .."
Cons: "The staff was disorganized and seemed a bit frantic at one point they announce a need for a doctor on board .. we where never told that the passanger was allright .. There was a chilld who sat behind me that kick my chair the entire time and stuck his hands in between which where sticky in between the seat over and over again grabbing me he was loud and sick with what seem to be a cold and kept touching me though the seat would not listen to the adult that was with him i understand that he is a child but this went on the entire flight which was over five hours my back is still not ok .. snacks where serve late into the filght once.. staff was not friendly..."

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 attendants were very nice. The price (economy nonstop RT to Boston from Seattle) was excellent."
Cons: "JetBlue economy seats were uncomfortable or me on a long (almost six hour) flight. I had to get up and stand in back twice, as my rear end was so sore. Both flights were delayed 45 minutes to an hour. As this is my first time flying JetBlue, it didn't leave good impression."

Pros: "Convenience of time."
Cons: "Was delayed but didnt know why. Sat on the tarmac for an hour and a half. My audio didnt work for my TV"

Pros: "Great crew and the standard JetBlue snacks, WiFi, direct TV"
Cons: "Needs to upgrade. TVs are tiny for a cross country trip."

Pros: "Service, equipment, timeliness were great."
Cons: "WiFi was so slow my email wouldn’t load. Wish for decent food on a five hour flight."

Pros: "Efficient boarding, capable crew, mbetter than standard free snack options. Decent amount of leg room due to it being an older plane."
Cons: "Could have used another round or two of water/beverage offerings as the cabin air is always so warm & dry. Disappointed in lack of power source for charging devices on such a long flight, but the plane seemed way too old to accommodate that."

Pros: "Friendly, capable attendants, smooth & efficient boarding process. A couple decent free snack options. Due to it being an older plane, leg room is decent."
Cons: "This and it’s return flight (back to back with a red-eye) are on an older plane without charging ports for all the devices we have nowadays. Makes it difficult to get a full charge to last for the 6 hour flight. Could have used another round of beverage offerings as the air is so dry and warm. Other than that nothing really to complain about!"

Pros: "Leg room was good."
Cons: "$5 for the use of a pillow. Boarding was a little confusing"

Pros: "The ride was a bumpy one. The captain kept us informed the entire way. It kept the lady next to me very calm and that was appreciated. The flight attendants were very professional and courteous."

Pros: "Attentive CREW and proactive."

Pros: "Good selection of movies, friendly staff"
Cons: "Seats did not breath at all and caused me to sweat. Placement of movie controls on armrest was very poor and caused me to continually stop the movie accidentally. Flight attendant did not inform me of the cost of beverages (or that they even had a cost) until after I had asked for two."

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: "Customer service and seat space."
Cons: "Food could have been better"

Pros: "Overall a pleasant trip, nice crew."
Cons: "Entertainment was off / broken for many seats. Mine was busted but my neighbor's worked fine. They made an announcement for broken seats to hook up to Wi-Fi for entertainment for same programming, but that would mean watching on my little android."

Pros: "Everything specially the crew members.very happy respectful ."
Cons: "The service friendly"

Pros: "The seats are wide with leg room, even on a center seat."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online, or at a kiosk, because my reservation couldn't be found. Of course, I did have one, and it took going to a counter to get it straightened out, but only after a loooong wait and then barely making it to the gate in time for boarding. Before a 90-minute delay."

Pros: "Comfy seats. Smooth flight With no big issues."
Cons: "They skipped me over for snacks. I was reading, but still. I had also asked to purchase as snack box but they told me "later" and never followed up. Not a huge deal. But I was hungry!"

Cons: "Sitting on the runway for an hour"

Pros: "Fast, efficient, friendly service. Great crew"

Cons: "The cabin temperature was very hot"

Cons: "Hour late and no wifi!"

Pros: "Very good complimentary lunch - veggie wrap. I was surprised by the quality. Also I like the plane design - there are places to stand while waiting for the rest room, so you are out of the aisle. WiFi worked."
Cons: "Wish they didn’t charge extra for seat assignment."

Cons: "I checked two bags and paid for them. The flight was full. I dutifully got in line for zone two. Next thing you know, at least 25 people got to board early and have free bag check. Really? I should get $35 dollar refund."

Pros: "Good snacks. Nice crew. Nice seats."
Cons: "Pay WiFi? JetBlue does it for free.."

Pros: "Boarded and left JFK on time and arrived 15 minutes early to Seattle. Love DELTA."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "My friend and I was switched to an even worse seating when boarding. Very uncomfortable especially for my friend since he had crutches."

Pros: "Surprised to see the hostess serving food on a domestic flight. Were courteous when we were sitting on the tarmac for 3 hrs waiting for clearance."
Cons: "Folks at the boarding counter were rude. Had one bag as a carry on, and was forced to check it in. Whereas saw other folks stow their two personal items in the overhead cabin."

Pros: "Flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "Flight was super late, I’m hearing impaired and there’s no apparent closed captioning option for anything I was trying to watch"

Cons: "It didn’t take off on time"

Pros: "I liked the cabin interior and the inflight entertainment system."
Cons: "The complimentary fruit slices and cheese gave me servere food poisoning (strong symptoms for 36h+). The flight change (added fuel stop an hour before takeoff) showed in the app as canceled flight and disabled the boarding pass. And the several times at the gate verbally advertised on board WiFi didn’t work at all. Not a good expierence."

Pros: "A pretty well-run flight, till we landed and waited on the tarmac for a gate. Otherwise, uneventful. Lunch was decent. Crew was good."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Lack of legroom in economy"

Pros: "At least they serve us dinner."
Cons: "The toilet was very sticky. over crowded and kids was crying all over the flight."

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, boarding was fast, on time and overall service was excellent"
Cons: "The plane was small so not a lot of space and didn't offer food other than one beverage"

Pros: "Service from the crew."
Cons: "Quality and comfort of seats. Quality of food. The TV screen was from the 80s."

Pros: "The new delta seats are super uncomfortable and zero legroom. When you put the seat back back the butt part goes forward and your knees are crunched in front of you. The cushion also angles down its horrible. They gave a couple rows extra room and now charge more for them while crunching every other seat together."
Cons: "Seats and legroom horrible"

Pros: "movie choices are great"
Cons: "the people sitting behind me kept talking about dying from the aircraft, it makes me uncomfortable."

Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Flew business class and my 1st choice on the menu had run out. I ended up not eating."

Pros: "I was automatically upgraded."
Cons: "I was upgraded, which I appreciate very much. However, I was upgraded to a window seat. With my bladder situation it was comfortable. This is why I only book aile seats."

Pros: "That I made it to Dublin"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to aircraft issues making us 2 hours late for vacation. THIS IS MY HARD EARNED MONEY! I literally put blood, sweat and many many tears into this trip. The flight attendant was so rude on this trip. It was like she was absolutely offended by my presence. I barely even spoke to her except to make sure of my vegetarian tray to which I got the nasty reply "You'll have to wait because I don't have it with me now". If I wasn't so focused on sleeping as much as I could I would have written her name down. No complimentary cocktails for Preferred Seating? Seriously? What did I upgrade for exactly? Literally four inches of space? Late, rude, money sucking industry who holds no accountability for wrong doings. Don't get into the Health Industry.. you'll kill people with this flippant attitude. Bleh.. I doubt I'll fly with Delta again. The thought of having to do so turns my stomach."

Pros: "One of The crew members a guy from Texas was nice"
Cons: "The female crew Members were taking loudly and a lot during the flight it was difficult to sleep as a result. The food was low and very very bad"

Pros: "The food was good and the staff was competent and friendly. There was a large choice of inflight entertainment (but the sound was mushy)."
Cons: "Although more comfortable than most, the seats were cramped (for 10 hours). Boarding was delayed 30", but we did not take off for 3 more hours. I really don't know why. It felt like the NYC MTA: poor communications. The boarding process required an avoidable half hour of standing in lines."

Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."

Pros: "Good food (for economy), lots of little perks (like eye shades), and most importantly, excellent service from the flight attendants. One of my best transatlantic flights."

Pros: "WiFi, good flight attendants"
Cons: "Would like to see Direct TV along with Delta Suite so can watch live TV"

Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Delta employee who drive shuttle to connection stopped to drop off a passenger and proceed to chat w other workers thereby getting me to my gate late and missing my connection and getting me to Florida almost 3 hours later than planned. Agents at desk in JFK were rude. There was another Delta employee also on the shuttle who was the only one who seemed to show concern. He alerted the driver, called the boarding gate and led me to it."

Pros: "Great service, polite staff"
Cons: "Incredibly tiny seats, even for my girlfriend, who is 5'6""

Pros: "Everything up to departure. Sat in line for almost an hour."

Pros: "Nice crew, normal seats, TV etc. They were very apologetic about the delays. They gave multiple updates and came around with water/snacks"
Cons: "The plane was delayed to wait for passengers from another flight. We waited for almost two hours. After that there was multiple technical difficulties- loading the bags, closing the door, refueling...the list goes on. We ended up taking off almost four hours late."

Pros: "Just not enough room to accommodate that many people for such a long flight. And felt neglected and grouchy by the end of the trip."

Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment and crew"
Cons: "Boarding was way too long"

Pros: "I love deltas crew. Quick service and they let you sleep. Very efficient boarding. Excellent."

Cons: "in Amsterdam any DELTA crew helm us, only KLM"

Pros: "Great service, a lot of food, good entertainment"
Cons: "I don't understand why people take babies on red eyes. It makes the flight so unpleasant. I wish airlines would discourage this."

Pros: "Lots of great food n free new movies! Crew was polite and on top of their stuff :)"

Cons: "Old aircraft. No food variety. Old entertaining system. Delayed."

Pros: "the attendant in first class was fantastic."

Cons: "They didn't land due to fog, making me miss all my other flights. Bags were not put on redirected flight to Beijing. Bags still missing 3 days later. Trip has been put on hold till bags arrive in Jakarta."

Pros: "On time - great crew - smooth flight"
Cons: "Not a lot of legroom and on return journey my entertainment screen would not work"

Pros: "- entertainment - smooth boarding"
Cons: "- very small airplane for a 6 hour flight - no comfort seats"

Pros: "The flight was not even 1/3 full, which made everything easy. Was able to find a spot for my bad above my seat. The seats next to me were to empty, so that added benefit through out the flight. The in flight entertainment on the app is a not annoying if you don't download it first but there's a work around if you know it."
Cons: "Minimal food selection."

Cons: "The bathroom supplies were not replenished. In fact, the facial tissue was empty at beginning of flight. When the toilet paper ran out, I finally informed the attendant and they fixed everything. It seems that checking on that stuff was not part of their routine."

Pros: "seemed more comfortable on this plane, still squishy."
Cons: "really.. a 6 hour flight with just a cookie.."

Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "The plane was new and very comfortable. Service fair."
Cons: "The food was horrid."

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: "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."

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: "The flight company's got changed to AA from Iberia but didn't get any email from Kayak. Send an email next time please."

Cons: "They were not honest with the information given by stewardesses"

Pros: "My business class flight"

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "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."

Pros: "This was British Airways operated by American Airlines. I'm usually not a fan of American Airlines but this was a pleasant surprise. Plane was on time and pleasant. Seating was not roomy but what we expected. We were served dinner with option for and simple breakfast. Entertainment system was up to date with personal screens and choice of movies and games."
Cons: "There were six of us flying and we choice this flight because it was the lowest cost we could get per seat. When we try to check in for seating, we ended up having to pay significant fees to get seats together. I feel like this wasn't upfront and we may have used other Airlines/ flying times if we realized this wasn't the cheapest way to go. (I'll have to read the fine print better next time)"

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..."

Cons: "Don't have tv in seats hard to watching one tv"

Pros: "Entertainment and crew were good"
Cons: "The seats reclined but when they did the bottom of the seat moved forward creating even less leg room. For a guy that is 6' tall it made it nearly impossible to sleep on the over night flight. The head rest also did not raise over my shoulder height which added to the lack of sleep"

Pros: "Excellent crew."

Pros: "The service was okay, they were polite."
Cons: "The plane took forever to load, the plane departed late, although the captain still claimed we would make it 10 minutes early we did not. And to top it off, we waited on the tarmac to find a gate because we were late. Thanks American, I appreciate the reminder as to why I never fly your airline."

Pros: "In-seat entertainment options. Good system, easy to use, lots of good options. Why couldn't you have had this on our flight from Europe?"
Cons: "The almost 30 minute wait on the tarmac AFTER we landed to find a free gate. Did you not know we were coming???? The last thing we needed after a very long day of flying."

Pros: "There was movie available"
Cons: "-There were no Blankets for coach even though I wasn't feeling good at all."

Pros: "Direct flight, convenient schedule"
Cons: "Ground delay at JFK, no personal entertainment system"

Cons: "No power at JFK. Customs and baggage claim a nightmare. After a tiring international flight, 4 hours in airport find out my flight is canceled. Miss a day of work because can't get flight until following day. No airline offer of food or hotel accommodation."

Pros: "Very little turbulence, excellent flight crew."
Cons: "1+ hour sitting on the Tarmac in JFK before takeoff, 1+ hour sitting on the Tarmac in Dublin before we could get off the plane."

Pros: "Seating way too tight"

Pros: "Our flight attendant was very nice and the restrooms were ample."
Cons: "We flew a 777-200 which was 15 years old and not to today's standards for transatlantic flights. The entertainment system was awful. Shame on American."

Pros: "Unable to Rate food & entertainment (night flight) I can, however, rate comfort since it was the worst crammed in seating ever!! They talk about the increase in violent behavior. Perhaps American Air could step up to the plate and offer a bit of comfort for hard working passengers. How? Easy to figure out!! Give us leg room for crying out loud."
Cons: "Crammed seating... No leg room.... Volunteered to check carry on... (Big mistake) had a longish wait for bags.."

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."

Cons: "The crew was talking very loudly so I couldn't sleep. It's a red eye flight! People are trying to sleep!!"

Pros: "I have never felt so smushed in to a space for so long."
