Cons: "My son had to go to the bathroom shortly after we landed. Which he had to since the seatbelt sign was turned on when we were landing. He really couldn't hold it any longer and he is 4. I was sitting in the last row next to the bathroom and I attempted to get up to take him. The stewardess was very rude and told me to have a seat. I said he is about to pee in his pants and I sat down. Well sure enough he urinated on himself. He was so upset because he thought the rude stewardess would get bad at him. He also didn't understand why he couldn't go to the bathroom. So he urinated on the floor of the aircraft. So I left with my 4 year old boy covered in urine and in tears along with my 6 year old and my 2 year old who was having a tantrum at the same time. This made my mother's day complete. I felt as if the staff on this flight was very rude. No one even said sorry or cared about what had just happened. Even a happy mother's day greeting would have been nice. To add on our flight to Philadelphia we we're delayed for 3 hours. We have three children 6 and under and ended up arriving at about 3:15am. Your airline did absolutely nothing to make us more comfortable and am overall very dissappointed in JetBlue."

The woman at the desk fixed it in the system but I boarded last, which was stressful. When we landed in Ft. Lauderdale, the stroller I checked at the gate was nowhere to be found. I was told to check baggage claim. Luckily it was there, but getting there involved a long walk with my daughter and 2 bags in my arms. Very frustrating. For the return flight to Philadelphia I tried to add my daughter to the boarding pass I printed at home. No luck. Instead I had to wait in an extremely long line that went out the doors and into the heat of the sun with my daughter. I was told I had to wait in this line because I did not add my daughter to the boarding pass. I told them she was in the system but it wouldn't print on the pass. Then I was told that was because they had to see my daughter in person. ?!?!?!? Very frustrating."
