Pros: "Jetblue is always great. I fly Jetblue whenever possible."

Pros: "The assurance of safe social distances, The boarding was well done. Getting off the plane was pretty good. Leaving on landing as scheduled. Keep it up"

Pros: "Some of the crew was decent others seemed annoyed they were doing their job."
Cons: "Some of the crew was decent others seemed annoyed they were doing their job. Two of the employees serving the cabin could use an attitude adjustment. The crew was late in getting food out but for a four hour flight there is no value in flying anymore. Airlines are just trying to rake in as much money as possible. When are they going to be responsible for everyone getting sick like cruise ships are? They should hand out masks and sanitizer because airlines are one of the dirtiest public spaces that there is! Show up late and barely clean the plane between its third or fourth leg of the day."

Cons: "Temperature oscillated a lot,"

Pros: "Very well organized, smooth boarding, early arroval"

When we landed we landed so fast the pilot had to brake very hard that life jackets came out of the pockets under the seats."

Pros: "Roomy"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "It was all good."

Cons: "The plane was miserably cold, with tempuratures dipping well into the 50s on the aircraft. I was shivering and sneezing the entire time, guests in the row in front of my had their leather jackets over their faces. Air was pummeling me in the window seat. It was the most miserable 2 hours on a plane I have ever experienced, and I have been on thousands. I would highly reconsider the tempuratures on the plane seeing as that this could severely sicken children and elderly. I have never experienced this before."

After calling Jetblue for customer service per your advice, they first suggested to give Jetblue credits for extra tickets. When I insisted that the issue was solely caused by kayak-jetblue ticketing connection issues, they supervisor approved to cancel 2 credit card payments... BUT I have to wait for 2 weeks to see the cancellation on my credit card. Unfair and ridiculous, if you as me."

Cons: "Due to hurricane Irma, people are flooding out of Florida like rats on a sinking ship. So, the security checkpoint is an absolute mess. Meanwhile, the trains at MCO are malfunctioning badly as they chaotically try to replace them. The boarding agent acknowledged these issues as she explained to me and 5 other people that we couldn't get on the plane that wasn't scheduled to leave for 12 more minutes. Finally, thank God, a supervisor arrived and called the captain of the plane who subsequently let us board. Completely unnecessary situation. Very disappointed."

Cons: "Delayed at Ohare by an hour. Sitting on the Tarmac for a half hour in Reagan, waiting for a gate. This was our leg back to DC, after our leg to Chicago four days previously. On that trip I did a review and gave the whole trip a 1 out of 5 stars. That trip was the trip from hell, with delays, waiting on the Tarmac, deplaning, almost cancelled, more waiting on the Tarmac, wheels up in Reagan, wheels down in ORD, and then more Tarmac waiting for a gate. So I was already more than perturbed when this trip had similar outcomes."

Cons: "They gave us just 2 small snack"

Cons: "Was late"

Cons: "No delays"

Pros: "Boarding and meal"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late flight No room for bags for Group 2 in bulkhead row"

Pros: "The flight going to Newark was cancelled due to the weather. The service person was prompt to changed our flight to Washington, DC."
Cons: "Due to staffing problems the flight going to DC left Richmond 1.5 hours late. The plane left at 4pm and our connecting flight to Rome was starting boarding at 425pm. It was very stressful. I can understand changes due to weather but there is no excuse when it comes to staffing."

Pros: "Boarding was seamless"
Cons: "Planes were older and tight."

Pros: "Old and thus soft and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Old plane overall"

Pros: "Service was nice & early."

Cons: "Personnel were unhelpful and not forthcoming! Very inconvenient with trying to reschedule to the next day! Felt as if no one really cared if we got there or not! No vouchers were offered for hotels or food!"

Pros: "Good service from crew. Fairly quick boarding process."
Cons: "Aircraft seemed fairly new on inside, but didn't have power outlets. Small uncomfortable seats on a long flight that is almost always full."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and cramped."

Pros: "Staff at airport and cabin crew were mostly nice. At airport, the ticket agent helped correct a mistake and was very helpful."
Cons: "There are TVs on the backs of chairs where they advertise that you can pay to watch shows or movies and play the safety video. That would be fine if you could just turn it off once that's done. But it was too hard to turn off, and after the safety video, they played three ads (you couldn't turn the ads off). At the end of the flight the tvs camenon again. It was also a night time flight - how can you sleep with the screen on. Also, the seat space seemed smaller than usual so the screen was in my face. I hated this flight."

Pros: "Flight attendant was personable and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats are tiny, and seat belts were super short. I have never had to ask for an extender, but I did on this plane."

Pros: "Ir was good experíence"

Cons: "Delayed because of mechanical problems and did not announce gate changes."

Pros: "Flight was ahead of time and flight crew was great. Flight was relaxing, calm and quiet."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "It was perfect flight by all means"

Pros: "Relatively, on time."
Cons: "The seats were hardest, most uncomfortable airline seats yet. No padding whatso ever. They now have 4 boarding classes plus the 'special' folks. If you drag your bag to the gate , which slows down boarding, you get it checked for free, if you check it yourself at the counter you get to pay 25$ ... Since older people generally do not want to be carrying luggage up the 'stairs and through the Chicago airport', it means they get to pay extra! I think it is age discrimination that all the airlines are doing. Only the young can fly the cheapest."

Pros: "Punctual departure, arrival ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The man in front of me thought it was obvious that he should enjoy 130% space, leaving me with 70%. I couldn't even read my magazine. I've paid full price for my seat. Slow service. Half an hour wait for baggage claim."

Cons: "The in-flight concessions were extremely poor. The staff were impolite and inconsiderate"

Cons: "Never got there canceled for weather."

Cons: "The boarding process was a bit chaotic. At the end i had no where to put the bag and i had to check it."

Pros: "I slept"
Cons: "Provide real food. Board back to front, window to aisle"

Cons: "Terrible delays and little to no communication."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays sand discomfort!"

Pros: "TSA was very rude in Cleveland."

Pros: "Nice"

Pros: "We made it with all our luggage"
Cons: "LONG walk at ORD from gate to gate. Very confusing boarding process."

Pros: "Boarding process was efficientt"
Cons: "Plane circled around for 30 min with no update from pilot. Luggage took 35 min to arrive."

Cons: "Whers my bag!?!?!"

Pros: "The crew tried"
Cons: "I sat in the middle seat of row 38. The last one between 2 tall broad melus there was no room to even put the tray table down.it was the worst flight I ever had. Never United again"

Cons: "There are 2 maintenance problems on 2 different planes that caused major delays in Chicago. This is the last time I'm taking United."

Pros: "Flight attendants could not have been nicer or more proactive."

Cons: "Nothing in particular"

Cons: "Arrived at 1:30 AM"

Cons: "Long waiting time to get luggafe"

Pros: "I did not like anything .We had four hours of delay. They did not even have the curtesy of giving us something to eat."
Cons: "At Chicago they charged me # 25(dollars) for my bag that weighed Twenty Five pounds. Why? When I left D.C. I had the same bag with me in the plane. When I asked the people at the United Counter no body could give an answer."

Pros: "Same....very possible experience"

Pros: "The staff for united were super helpful and accommodating. Made traveling with my pet super easy."
