Cons: "Was told to get off plane after two hours with our luggage and then eventually got on plane and then waited at least a half hour to take off. On arrival at our destination we had to wait until a gate was available. We arrived almost four hours later. I had to cancel and rearrange my appointments. I don't even recall hearing I'm sorry for the inconvenience. Some kind of compensation should have been provided. Some kind of"
Pros: "Jetblue has consistently provided a great package. From efficiency, cleanliness and employee helpfulness. I trulyblu enjoy flying with them."
Cons: "Jetblue's concourse @ EWR could use a little love. But then again, I feel the entire airport could use some love...."
Pros: "Seating was fine, flight attendants were very nice. It was a short flight and everyone worked to be efficient about boarding once the plane was ready for boarding."

Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant the entire trip."
Cons: "The TV set in the Head rest did not work. The plane had some technical difficulty following the clearing from the gate at which point we sat on the Tarmac and then taxied back to the gate with a statement of it being up to 2 hours to repair the situation. We were compensated even with additional snacks or meals while siting on the plane. I was delayed on my travel going forward from MCO to further points in Florida."

Pros: "All went well even with the slight delay. Great crew. Smooth flight."

Pros: "Everything's my"

Pros: "Extra legroom"
Pros: "JetBlue gave each passenger a $150 credit"
Cons: "The plane was delayed by 5.5 hours. We had a 6:45 pm reservation that didn't leave till 12:15 AM. We got home Monday morning at 4 am. Normally it wouldn't be "terrible" but my son was starting a new position that Monday. I learned my lesson, don't book the last flight out. I just don't understand why they didn't get new equipment and a new crew sooner. As it was they had to fly in a different plane in and flew up a crew from Ft. Lauderdale who flew us home to Ft. Lauderdale. I'm still not sure what caused this problem."
Pros: "Love the boarding, inflight service, entertainment and on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Every thing was perfect. This kind of experience is rare in my frequent travels."
Pros: "My first time on Jet Blue and I was impressed. Clean comfortable seats with their own entertainment screens for only a two hour flight. After my nightmare with Air China this felt like heaven."
Cons: "The flight was delayed three hours due to mechanical issues. But better safe than dead."
Pros: "Jet blue has friendly staff"
Cons: "We departed 1.25 hrs late."
Pros: "From beginning to end iit was made a pleasant experience by the people working ar Jetblue."
Cons: "Now that's a hard question."
Cons: "The delays is just a hassle due that I am sick person. On August 5th my flight was suppose to leave at 2:30 am didn't leave until 6:41 am that's 4 hours and ten minutes waiting in a wheel chair with no food to eat. August 19th the same situation suppose to leave at 10:45 pm didn't leave until 1 am. The crew members were terrific them trying to keep us calm."
Pros: "Very easy flight, good service."
Cons: "Baggage claim was ridiculous. Had to wait a long time for our bags because for some reason they were loaded on with a flight from Boston that arrived after the Ft Myers flight. My suitcase finally showed up and had a large black streak down the front of it."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early to destination."
Pros: "More options on the entertainment menu. Needed that for my longer flight I connected from. Great snack options and very courteous staff. I enjoyed their company out of all my flights that day!"
Cons: "I would like to see all TAP planes come with a standard entertainment option on the headrest in front of you with the advanced menu option of movies, games, radio, etc. and ensure all headphone jacks are operational. (This flight it wasn't working well)"
Pros: "Me encantó la gentileza de enviar correos electrónicos para mantenerme informada."
Cons: "Flight was delayed more than 6 hours and we missed the connection. The only alternative offered was the same flight 2 days later. To avoid similar risk we went to FLL on the delayed flight, but we were responsible for transportation and hotel for 2 days! Understandable that they can't control the weather, but no excuse for forcing us to stay or paying extra."
Cons: "The flight was very delayed, but I had to wait the whole time because JetBlue will sometimes take off on time even after they emailed you about a delay. So I spent hours at the airport."
Pros: "Updates and courteous staff that carried on to work on our flight from the previous one."
Cons: "Towards the 4th and 5th delay information was confusion on why the delaying and approvals that were needed to continue the flight. Potentially a more honest and realistic delay of 4-5 hour shift initially would've been more comforting than being told 5 times our flight is delayed yet once again."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, clean & comfortable seats."
Pros: "Pilot was funny and staff was very professional."
Cons: "That boarding was backwards with the last rows going on first :-("
Cons: "With many late afternoon flights to/from Orlando in the summer, weather is a factor. My 7:35pm flight was delayed until 12:30AM, arrived after 3AM. Tough flight. Onboarding crew was very pleasant and I was thankful that JetBlue was able to find, what I am assuming was another crew, to bring us home. At least it didn't cancel and have to find a hotel room in NEWARK. FLT127 6/26/17. NWK-MCO"
Pros: "The fly attendance was so nice that he even made a toy for my baby girl."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentive. Although the aircraft was a little dated, it was a smooth ride given the weather. The pilot was excellent."
Pros: "Jet Blue is great! Very accommodating and friendly!"
Pros: "I liked that I got a fire exit seat, but then was made to think as if I had a special duty to the stewardess who demanded my attention to this, I guess, privilege. I just wanted to go to sleep."
Cons: "Plane was 2 hours late, pretty much overshadowed everything else I didnt like."
Pros: "crew was good"
Cons: "Four hours late. asked early on what was going on told that the flight coming in was late. then was told an hour before plane arrives it'll be another hour car because maintenance crew had to check things out. LAME!"
Pros: "The best flight ever, the crew, the attention, the flight, everithing great! Even the snacks!"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Gate crew not given information about reason or extent of delay. Once on board there was another delay with no explanation."
Cons: "Lack of control of crowd Boarding is like free for all, gate agents in general need stricter control of boarding from mosaic thru final rows, as a frequent traveler i continue to aee this time and time again once bording is called the crowd builds - agents should stop boarding if people will not remain AWAY. From boarding area, you need a way to get their attn"
Pros: "Everything else typical JetBlue great."
Cons: "Gate attendants on overly loud speakers shouting orders and other nonsense. Made for a very unpleasant experience. Not typical of JetBlue. Retrain or replace them. They had no control of the process."
Cons: "Extremely long delay. I didn't like that the delay updates were sent incrementally - I know that it's impossible to forecast this sometimes but it seemed like this was unnecessarily optimistic, and the 30 minute pushbacks became annoying and inconvenient."
Pros: "Crew finally moved me"
Cons: "X large xtra loud passenger beside me window seat He over flowed into my seat that I paid for He refused to Stowe his carry on after three times being told by crew he took the arm over and repeatedly turned my volume full blast hurting my ears I was offered a drink I think a flight would be appropriate and ban that passenger on future trips"
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 4 hours"
Pros: "Crew and pilots were amazing. Very comfortable flight."
Cons: "Cabin was a little to warm."
Cons: "My regular sized carry on was supposedly too large and had to be checked. I was not prepared for this as it has never happened on another flight"
Cons: "Horribly uncomfortable in coach. Leather seats not foot. Clothe would’ve been better. They’d keep you from sliding."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful. I loved the complimentary Icelandic water"
Cons: "I had to pay for my check in bag extra, which was not clear in the booking process. Very misleading!"
Pros: "Great seat back screen entertainment options."
Cons: "I like that they keep costs down by not including extras like in flight alcohol and food."
Pros: "Was ok. Got us there but everything is a la carte"
Cons: "Was ok. Newark is awful."
Cons: "Seats both support and recline"
Cons: "Economy seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "Iceairline has been delayed from Newark , can’t catch the connection flight from Reykjavik to Frankfurt at same day , ponsdond to next day flight ."
Pros: "Very cheap flight"
Cons: "No in-flight food, just water. Plane was very small. I’m almost 7 ft tall and asked if I could swap for an exit row, no dice. So I felt like a human-accordion between two rows of seat for the entire flight. I got what I paid for. Cheap airfare= discomfort."
Pros: "The flight was nice."
Cons: "I didn't like the check in personal.The one older woman was very rude & I don't think I will be flying with you again."
Pros: "I liked that it was non-stop. The crew was nice. They gave out a bottle of Icelandic water and pillow and blanket."
Cons: "Too crowded. Not enough explanation about the plane and different comfort levels of the different seat levels. I might have paid for upgraded seat if I had understood what the conditions would be. Also there was no explanation as to whether there would be food served or not."
Pros: "Water bottle"
Cons: "Delay that made me miss my connecting flight, which was then rescheduled a full 24 hours later. This is cutting into my vacation and the time to see my family."
Pros: "I liked the movie options."
Cons: "I don’t understand how you can be on a flight for 5 hrs and all they give you is water!!!! The seats were beyond painful and the space was so cramped. There was no sleeping on this red eye. Plane noise was extremely loud and we were not by the wing. Our flight was delayed and they didn’t say a thing until it was past the time to board!!! Really?!? No apologies for it either. This is the worst flight I have ever been on. Dread getting in this flight to go home."
Pros: "It was vegetarian. Very tasty, although the lentils were a little dry."
Cons: "The salad had a bit of grit in it! I think it was probably the lettuce that wasn’t thoroughly washed. Otherwise fine."
Cons: "The pilots was great, but the baggage was partially lost and we had to wait an hour while they found the rest and loaded it. For that hour, the airport positioned another jet with its engines firing into our air intake, so we spent the whole time coughing in fuel fumes. The crew had forgotten to put blankets out for about 1/3 of the plane on the overnight flight and didn't have enough to go around when the mistake was pointed out to them. Also, the check-in kiosks and web check-in were both faulty, so the desk assistants were overworked. Overall, the service was well intentioned, but inept. Not worth the cheaper ticket price."
Pros: "The free onboard entertainment was a welcome surpsise"
Cons: "The airline was late and every passenger missed their connecting flights. I had to wait another day and now that flight is delayed"
Pros: "The flight crew was kind."
Cons: "Good evening, I’m not sure under which category our complaints should fall on your website so I will include them here. To summarize our complaint, we booked our tickets on Icelandair through Kayak (and Webjet) and upon arriving at the check-in counter on December 2, we were informed that the baggage fee for our flight would be $95 each! Understandably, we were shocked and very displeased. Nowhere in our confirmation emails or flight details was there anything about having to pay such a high rate for our luggage. The first employee we spoke to said that your airline has recently started charging such fees to compete with WOW Air and as I said to him, I would like to point out again that this is the very reason why I never choose to fly with WOW Air: they clearly state that there is a high baggage fee from the beginning of the registration process and I know of too many other airlines who don’t have such inflated fees. This ticketing agent and the manager said that the level of our ticket (apparently called Economy Light) indicated that we would be charged this baggage rate. It is now my understanding that on the Icelandair’s website, these levels are described but no such options were listed or explained on the Kayak website or any of our confirmation materials/emails. It is the responsibility of your site to post these important details in a conspicuous place so that travelers can make informed decisions. We could’ve flown with Air Portugal for a mere $50 more and saved not only over $200 each but also the inconvenience and frustration. Upon the check-in manager’s suggestion, I looked up our flight by the booking reservation number (LCWNEG) and again, the only “flight type” shown was called Economy, nothing more. The same is true for when we checked in online and reserved our seats - there was never an indication of the fees that were awaiting us. All this to say, we were incredibly upset to be surprised with an additional cost of $200/person (round trip ticket) but then, to add insult to injury, not only did we nearly miss our flight due to the length of time spent at the check-in desk, once we got on the plane and we realized we would not be served anything other than water or soda - since all food/meals must also be paid for in most Economy levels. This was our first experience with your airline/website and I highly doubt we will ever choose you in the future. I know now for a fact that other passengers who have booked through 3rd party sites have found themselves in similar bad situations. If you choose to work with airlines and offer lower rates, it is only honest and fair to make your policies clearly known to your potential customers. We felt mislead and deceived as these rates seemed hidden until it as too late. I eagerly await your response and look forward to hearing what steps will be taken to rectify the problem and make amends for this unacceptable situation. Sincerely, Mandi Vermilyea and Judith Arp"

Pros: "Had a good experience with Icelandair. Price was great and that made it worth bringing my own food. Staff was nice."

Cons: "Why do you charge for food?? Even on an international flight??"

All planes were boarded at least 30-45 minutes later than expected and the late boarding delay on one of the flights caused the plane to miss a flight window and the entire plane had to sit on the tarmac for almost 3 hours.

Also, no complimentary food was given on a flight that long."
