Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The plane was really old, possibly JetBlue's oldest still in service? Frayed around the edges, the setback TVs were really old and tiny, the trays stiff and aged."
Cons: "The interior of the plane was not updated."
Pros: "Leg room was amazing, WiFi was great and entertainment selection was wonderful."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed about 30-45 minutes. Would have been perfect if on time."
Pros: "Seats were ok"
Cons: "Overall the attendants need to be more friendly. It seems like they are always on a defensive mood, specially the ones at the JFK airport. Also, we ended up arriving about 7 hours later then scheduled."
Pros: "Crew was not courteous. Flight delayed by 6hrs. Further delay because flight attendant was not at the gate"
Cons: "Better connection"
Cons: "I wish they had peanuts."
Pros: "Crew was great, funny even, and engaging when they didn't need to be but it was nice."
Cons: "I always enjoy jetblue flights, i don't have much to say here."
Pros: "Nice leg room"
Cons: "Flight was delayed so it made our arrival time closer to 3am. Sleeping was almost impossible on the flight because the lights kept flickering on and off."
Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Loved crew ground and air"
Cons: "Screen was annoying with black white static; did not sleep as planned. Ac was not cool; and delay at start did not help."
Pros: "We should've missed our flight (NewYork to Austin) because we got stuck in traffic. They pulled the walkway completely away from the plane as we were getting to the gate. The pilot saw us running towards it and waving them down. These amazing/wonderful/fantastic/phenomenal people pulled the walkway back and we made our flight. I will never take another airline EVER again."
Pros: "It stinks when you plan on the TVs, but they all don't work."
Cons: "It stinks when you plan on the TVs, but they all don't work."
Cons: "The WiFi was not working on the flight down to Austin. JetBlue having free WiFi was a main reason I picked to fly with you. I was planning on getting some work done on the long flight, but could not and instead had to wake up early the next day to finish it. I understand there is only so much you can do about it and you do not want to hold up the flight because of WiFi. I was just disappointed."
Pros: "Very nice crew Love the free snacks"
Cons: "Delays kept on coming. Made me extremely late for an important business meeting"
Cons: "JFK..... horrible"
Pros: "Airplane is nice, seats are comfortable and plenty of leg/knee room."
Cons: "Incredibly frustrating to wait an hour for luggage! Literally an hour from when we landed. It was a domestic flight. Other airlines seemed to move their passengers thru quickly so it was a JetBlue issue not an airport issue. Also, my TV did not work and kept going blank every minute or less. I just gave up on using it. That seemed to be an isolated problem as I did not see this happening to anyone else."
Pros: "The flight attendant was very hospitable and nice The seats are comfortable . They treat you really well"
Cons: "Some of the i flight screens weren’t working as well as the bathroom . But the crew made up For it"
Pros: "Great crew and movie options."
Cons: "The passenger in front of me was rude, but that's not the Jetblues problem."
Cons: "The flight took off two hours late. We were suppose to arrive at our destination at twenty minutes after midnight, and instead did not arrive until 2:30 a.m. You felt like the pilot got on the plane when you did with no planning involved on how to get to Austin. I later learned that Jet Blue has the worst on time record of all the airlines. And you got nothing to compensate you for the inconvenience. I am really disappointed in Kayak for not making it known on our ticket that we were flying from New York to Austin on Jet Blue. When buying my tickets on Kayak, it appeared on my itinerary that all my flights were on Iceland Air. It was very confusing to me, as I don't travel very frequently. And airport staff is not very helpful when you are in this situation. Due to all the confusion, I will probably use another airline search tool for my next trip to see if I can lessen the confusion."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable, but don’t recline more than 1”, also your seats do not offer any type of head/neck support like on other airlines"
Cons: "Your earbud connections offer nothing but static, plus the signal goes out constantly. More importantly. As a father of (4), and one who traveled a lot with my children, I never let them scream incessantly for (4) hours, however JetBlue seemingly has no reservations about letting a child sitting directly behind us scream incessantly for four hours. Absolutely ruined our flight. Can your staff not say a single word to the parents?"
Cons: "Entertainment on the tv on the seat wasn’t working. Told the stewarding and she said there was nothing they could do. Food was basic stuff you can get in the dollar store."
Pros: "Steward service was awful. Took a trip from JFK to Austin, 3 hours, and never was served one beverage. I asked 3 times and they always forgot."
Cons: "My luggage was damaged. :( the zipper broke and the wheel was bent in. Other than that, I had a wonderful experience. Love JetBlue!!"
Pros: "I had 4 hours on this flight, so being able to work online without paying a ridiculous price was very valuable to me."
Cons: "It was late at night, and it the man behind me kicked my seat (seemingliy intentionally, as though with a rythm or purpose) about 140 times throughout the trip. This was not the airline's fault, but I wanted to answer the feedback survey accurately - the flight was poor for it."
Pros: "everything great"
Cons: "nothing - all was excellent"
Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "the food is poor... there was delay."
Cons: "Crew was rude"
Pros: "The customer service was amazing!"
Cons: "The flight was about an hour delayed."
Pros: "fast and nice"
Pros: "No delay"
Cons: "There are nothing I do not like."
Cons: "Flight cancelled just before take off at 11 AM. Waited in the airport for 13 hours before next flight. Wasted whole day. It is not a good practice. Other airlines flights were taking off on this day. Only JetBlue flights were not running as per timeline."
Pros: "Customer service over the phone was amazing."
Cons: "I paid double to change my flight and then it was canceled and then had to rebook for another flight that was suppose to leave at 9pm but didn't leave til 12am. One of the worst days of my life"
Pros: "Communication, space"
Cons: "Delay 2 hrs"
Pros: "First time flying JetBlue today. Newer everything, more leg room, better snacks, free entertainment. Well done."
Pros: "The wonderful hospitality"
Cons: "There isn't much i didn't like"
Cons: "The boarding process could've been a lot better. Couldn't even hear the announcements they were making and they had us waiting outside to board the plane for close to 10mins. What if it had been raining? Too chaotic."
Pros: "The seats. The Wi-FI. The price of ticket."
Cons: "The delays. No notice. Boarding delayed by 45 minutes. 20 more in bay after doors shut. "We are in 20th position for take-off. Another hour. Arr over 2 hrs. Late. Attendents disappeared for a few hours. Sad."
Pros: "Mostly a great experience. I appreciated the choice of snacks, free wifi, and prompt boarding, allowing us to depart on time."
Cons: "The crew was generally unfriendly. Little acknowledgement beyond simply taking orders and following procedure - no eye contact or attempt at good service. It was the end of the day, but they made little effort at being nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then after boarding the plane we had to wait for another 30 minutes for plane repairs before departing, I guess it's better this way for our safety."
Pros: "Our domestic flight on Jet Blue was far superior than our international flight on Iceland Air! We got for fed more for free too."
Pros: "Good legroom. Got me home. Thank you."
Cons: "Is there a reason why your flights are so cold? I'm not going to buy a $5 blanket from you."
Pros: "Good boarding process. Comfortable seats with decent leg space."
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 attendants were friendly and hellpful."
Pros: "The first thing Jet Blue needs to do is to promptly update the monitors to reflect the status when the flight is delayed. The scheduled departure for the flight from JFK to Austin was 9:06 pm. It was past 8:45 pm and there was no airplane at the gate - At this point it was clear to me that we were definitely going to be delayed. Finally there was an announcement about the incoming flight from Syracuse being delayed causing the austin flight to be delayed. As far as I can remember, the monitors never reflected the delayed status. My assessment is this flight was delayed by 30 mins or so which may not be much if this is the only trip you are taking but definitely matters to someone who has been on a flight for 17 hrs and is just desperate to get home for some well needed rest. I give good rating for boarding and comfort as boarding was quick and suprisingly comfortable for economy seat. I give NA for crew, food and entertainment primarily because I was asleep the entire flight and did not interact with any of the flight crew."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "I don't know if this was an error on Kayak's part but since they were the ticketing agent, I suspect so... I booked a full fair, business class ticket for international flight, and I can tell you, Jet Blue had no business in this itinerary!!!! I completely understand the value of Jet Blue as a cost conscious airline, but on the flights I was on, they only had ONE CLASS OF TICKET! They may tell you differently, but after being on international flights for over 10 hours, I was stuck in a middle seat! And it took me a lot of talking to even get them to admit i deserved anything other than the last row in the plane."
Pros: "It was Ok. On time"
Pros: "Crew and pilot were great."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely PACKED during the peak of a global pandemic. Completely irresponsible to not have people spaced out by at least one seat."

Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."
Pros: "There were no seats available together so we were upgraded to the extra room seats so that we could all sit together. As a mother flying by herself with 2 children, one of whom is on the Austin spectrum this gesture of being able to keep us together meant so much to all 3 of us. Thank you"

All of the attendants and desk workers were trying their best but were set up for failure"
