Cons: "I love everything"

Pros: "Seats were great. Excellent movie selection. Friendly flight crew."
Pros: "the plane"
Cons: "Movie and music selections were not good"
Pros: "I have always looked for a Delta flight as my first choice. JetBlue will be my go to from here out. Great staff, comfortable seating, the snack bar on the flight is the best. Keeps the cart out of the isle less often on long flights."
Cons: "On board sandwiches were a bit overpriced for what you get..."
Cons: "I had to gate check my carry on bag, which is one of my biggest traveling pet peeves."
Cons: "Late take off and landing by 1 hour and sitting on tarmac forever upon arrival. JB used to be better"
Pros: "The flight attends did the best they could with information updates. They didn't know much more than we did."
Cons: "The catering issues delayed my flight almost 2 hours. Thank you to jetBlue for the email apology."
Pros: "I wasn't notified of cancellation and needed to go with another carrier to get to my destination on time."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "This flight was too short for either entertainment or food ... however the ease of making the JetBlue connection at jfk was great,"
Pros: "It helps make things easier when Long Beach is such an incredible airport."
Pros: "Food was really good, but the cabin crew were up to JetBlue's normal outstanding service"

Cons: "No head phones."
Pros: "Crew members were lovely. Selection of tv shows and movies was very nice."

Cons: "I left my new neck pillow by accident. Filed the report same night. Never saw it again."
Cons: "Night flight left almost an hour late. This was my fourth Jet Blue flight of the day, and none had a vegan snack option."
Pros: "Again the on board crew was very helpful and were willing to vouch that the plane had mechanical issues not weather issues when the gate agent in LGB tried to tell me that I would not get reimbursement for ground transportation to get from San Jose to San Francisco. So the good is that JetBlue did reimburse me for the LYFT I had to take to San Francisco."
Cons: "Well I arrived in San Jose, not San Francisco. So I arrived 3.5 hours late. Also, I did not appreciate when the gate agent told me that I could not be reimbursed for ground transportation because my flight was weather delayed not mechanically delayed. I understand that he/she may not have known what was the issue with my original flight out of Salt Lake. But, telling me that I would have to pay for ground transportation at 1 am to get the last 30+ miles to my destination made me really worried. If he/she didn't know and didn't have the time or resources to figure it out, I would have preferred if she redirected me to someone else or a phone number or email."
Pros: "Free high speed WiFi, movies, direct tv, enough legroom, on time, friendly crew, gate area - outlets, wifi, lounge"
Pros: "Direct TV offered excellent list of channels."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Look, if your kid is so young that he can’t get in a plane without screaming for four hours, you shouldn’t bring him on a plane and subject 200 people to that. It’s rude and selfish."
Pros: "Short time and easy on and off boarding."
Cons: "One stewardess was in a mood but otherwise a very pleasant flight."
Cons: "My flight was delayed, which would have caused me to miss my connecting flight. The customer service person was not at all helpful, and told me there were no other flights available on any airline until the next day. However, I was able to go online and book another flight immediately...which means that she was either being disingenuous or actively undermining efforts to get me home in a timely fashion. Very disappointing and as a SkyMiles member would have thought there would be some level of common courtesy dealing with a non-weather related delay that drastically impacted my travel plans."

Cons: "I thought the $11.00 fee for 30 continuous minutes of full Wi-Fi access was a bit pricey, esp when it kept getting disconnected and ended being about a collective 7-8 mins of access."
Cons: "Boarding was awful. It took about an hour to board and no reason was given until we were taxiing. (The crew was delayed.) Overhead storage was insufficient. Seats are too narrow. I paid for extra leg room, which I got, but I don't appreciate elbows in my ribs for the whole flight."

Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
Pros: "All was quiet. It was an early flight. Nice offer of more snack choices than other airlines."
Cons: "Didn't understand why I had to wait until getting to the gate to have a seat assigned when I purchased tickets several months ago. Since I was in the last boarding group, Had to check in my bag since it was already full, had fragile stuff in there and hoping everything is ok. it is what it is. Not anyone's fault but disappointing to have to do when I didn't plan on checking in and going to pick up at the baggage claim. This is what i wanted to avoid in the first place. could have at least offered to let us pick them up as we deplaned and not baggage claim!"
