Pros: "Over all Good!!"

Cons: "Gate personnel at TPA neglected to inform us of a gate change which almost caused us to miss our flight - argued with us about the efficacy of their so called, gate change announcements . No notification either email or text from Jet Blue to check in. Seemed to make the process harder to complete. The mobile site for Jet Blue was not very reliable or user friendly and made getting boarding passes quite trying. All this only applies to the DCA to TPA leg of our trip."
Cons: "Hello Team, my husband and I are very unhappy with the outcome. We were on our way to our honeymoon as we were not let to board our flight in Philadelphia. When our tickets were bought, we had Jon instead of Jonathan. Without any sympathy whatsoever, we were passed around various reps and agents. No one cared to help us make a change and make it to our flight. As we left home (after 2 hours of being at the airport), we continued trying to make a correction over the phone. None of the phone representatives cared to help and kept on delaying and holding us on the phone. After 8 hours, we were told that it's going to cost over $2,500 to have try an evening flight. They ended up marking us as "no show" at the airport which wasn't true. We ended up going back online (on kayak) and purchased new tickets as this option was cheaper. This entire experience was awful. Please reach out if you need any other information."
Cons: "The flight was very turbulent, and the captain did a poor job of keeping the passengers informed. In situations like that information goes a long way in comforting people."
Cons: "If my Chanel purse with my make up Chanel brand full bag with unopened experience makeup and purse was stolen"
Cons: "Notify us sooner about the 2 hour delay. Had to know there was not a pilot available."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The attendant at the gate was rude. She asked for me to put my bag in the slot to see if it will fit. It fit, and she told me I still need to check my bag because I squeezed it in there. She told me that I either “had to check my bag or find alternative way home” . After when I was taking to the end of the jetway she wouldn’t let me take it and said she had to do it” the whole situation was handling poorly and I watched her be rude to people prior to me. Also the outlet at the gate didn’t work."
Cons: "Only one of the Tram car lines was running from gate to terminal at TIA"
Pros: "No blankets no entertainment"
Cons: "We were rerouted by JustFly prior to our trip. Instead of Venice - Philadelphia-Tampa at noon, we were moved to Venice - London - Chicago - Tampa. Flight from London - Chicago was delayed 6 hours. Of course missed connection in Chicago. Spent night in Chicago and arrived home 48 hours after leaving for Venice airport."
