Flight was canceled

For a cross country flight, airline should at least offer 1 meal.

Agent at check in was exceptionally friendly, professional, and helpful. Flight, overall, was comfortable and very fast. It’s hard to do cross-country flights, but if all flights were like this one, it would be much more enjoyable!

Essentially no attempt was may to ensure or even remind the many maskless and semi-masked passengers to mask.

NA - Flight was excellent. No improvements needed. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you!

Comfortable economy seat with attentive but unobtrusive service. Plane was clean and Media options were current.

Cons: "Boarding took a long time. We were waiting in the tunnel for longer than usual."
Pros: "There was actual room for my legs."

Cons: "Tv controls on armrest are a bad design. Seats aren’t too comfy."
Pros: "We traveled MINT and really enjoyed the crew and our option to board first. My wife is walking disabled and we had wheel chair service right to the door of the aircraft."
Cons: "When we arrived in Boston, we sat on the tarmac for almost an hour waiting for an available gate. Then when the walkway was secured, no one was there to meet my wife with the wheel chair until all the passengers had disembarked. The delays stressed us out and we had a limo waiting for us."

Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "The delay was longgg but I know that couldn’t be avoided"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Red eye flight was delayed over an hour. Caused me to miss my connection in the AM, my two new options were an out of state airport or a six hour wait at the airport. Unfortunately the girl who sat next to me had panic attacks and ‘seizures’ the whole flight long, requesting medical personnel on board and the constant attention of the attendants. No sleep to be had. By far my worst experience flying all around."
Pros: "Even the pasa get next to me was awesome I liked it all"
Cons: "The wait to exit, but it wasn’t the airlines fault"
Cons: "Flight delayed from Raleigh to Boston due to weather. Flight time moved up slightly and we were told by Mike at gate C-8 that we would make our connecting international flight but we didn’t. Total nightmare. Incompetence everywhere’s we looked with this airline. STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Comp snacks and sodas, legroom, tvs, hot towelettes in coach."

Pros: "Great crew and comfortable seat, generous drinks and snacks."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, and then boarded even later than second delayed time."
Cons: "Two hours late - Jet Blue allows too many "extra carry ons" which delay entrance and exiting considerably. Noticed so many people with an extra carry on as well as a backpack the same size as a suitcase. Staff no way as gracious as staff from Boston to San Diego I do make allowance that they too were delayed and probably fatigued."
Pros: "The smiley and friendly flight attendants. The warm hand towels offered near the end of the flight. Being able to watch TV shows."
Cons: "I miss the days when you received more than a small bag of snacks for food. No movies were ever offered on the flight--just TV shows. Cramped middle seat."
Cons: "We were delayed 1 hr getting on the plane but then over another hour on the tarmac while they continued to work on a technical issue they already knew about. They should not have let anyone board until it was resolved. We have two small kids and it would have been much better to have them in the terminal for that extra hour of waiting."
Cons: "Delayed two hours"
Pros: "They were very efficient on getting people on the plane"
Cons: "I had gotten sick on a flight....just a little and did not receive alot of help from staff as there was no bag for me in my seat. I had to clean up the area. I also found there was not spray if needed for this sort of accident. Other issue - which is just a general is people who bring the big suitcases and people who have smaller cannot get it in overhead due to the size. Also the fees for a second bag is ridiculous and it was unfortunate that I had to pay as if I did not then I would have been over. either way....lose lose"
Cons: "I was cold"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and had little turbulence."
Pros: "Free in-flight WiFi service for all travelers on the plane. Many onboard entertainment choices available using individual LCD screen display. Many selections of in-flight meals and beverages available for purchase during your flight. Online seat selection and online check-in were fast and efficient. Additional perks for travelers available online."
Cons: "There was no food included in my flight."
Pros: "JetBlue never fails, one of the best airlines around"
Pros: "The fact that I arrived at my destination. Leg room seemed above average."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for 40 minutes for no stated reason. The plane was antiquated with broken screen controls on the arm rest and tiny, low-quality screens. My buttons didn't work so I couldn't even turn the screen off for the duration of the flight let alone gain access to entertainment. I had to use my night mask so that I atleast didn't have to stare at Amazon advertisements for 5 hours straight on a broken screen. This was not a good introduction to JetBlue, and I would likely not fly them again. Not competitive to the quality or amenities of a major carrier. I wish I had read reviews of this company because delays and non-working equipment seem the norm for JetBlue."
Pros: "We were running a bit late for our flight, so the employee at the check-in counter made sure we checked in as soon as possible! He even checked in an extra bag free of charge, so we could go trough security faster! Greatly appreciated!"
Cons: "My in-flight entertainment system didn't work. Even though they offered me a voucher for the troubles, it made my flight a bit boring."
Pros: "We arrived safely!"
Cons: "Seems like no AC. Small screens and super poor quality. Disappointing."
Pros: "The check in line was a little long, but moved quickly. Then the unthinkable happened and we got wind of our friend passing just as we got to the front. The woman working at the counter felt so bad for us that she actually moved us into our own row so that we could have the space to grieve. We were also traveling with a dog so that in itself was so kind and accommodating."
Pros: "Kind airline stewardess'"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Erik-flight attendant. Skipped a lot of people with snacks, water, drinks, hot towels to freshen up. If you didn't make eye contact, he did not bother asking. Very unprofessional! Doesn't belong in that position. Also, limited movies. Same ones as ten days ago."
Pros: "My experience was definitely improved because I happened to be traveling with my elderly mother, who needed wheelchair assistance. Thanks to her, we boarded early and had aisle seats near the front."
Cons: "My tray table was broken. I'm tired of the same unimaginative snack choices."
Pros: "easy boarding, plenty space, kind and helpful crew"
Cons: "delayed flights both ways, very cold air conditioning (which a flight attendant did adjust after I asked), sound didn't really come through headphones - very scratchy"

Cons: "Missed flight due to unnecessary delays"

Pros: "Seats are fine. Ordering system is up to date."
Cons: "After the first two hours of my flight (which I sleep through) I couldn’t buy a drink a soda or anything."
Pros: "individual TVs"
Cons: "it would be great if you could not use all those one-use plastic cups. waste is a real issue in the US and the solution is using re-usable items like washable cups. Unboarding was a nightmare and it started to get really hot waiting to get off."

Pros: "Flight itself uneventful"
Cons: "Lateness"
Pros: "I am always impressed by the Delta staff. Top notch."
Cons: "The entertainment screens have an (older) head phone jack that many people do not have. The headphones available for purchase by the airline are of very poor quality.

Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The short flight was fine. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Because we arrived to LAX from SAN so late we had to run to the next gate and barely made the flight. The overhead bins were already very full so we had to stuff our stuff at our feet. Since we arrived so late it would have been better if they had allowed those with a tight connection to disembark first."

Cons: "The tsa is worthless"

Pros: "They did eventually put out some small snacks and drinks (water and regular coke)."

Pros: "Amazing Crew"
Cons: "3 of the crew Members were extremely rude... snarky remarks when asking very simple questions... We are supposed to have a good experience as a costumer. Not my fault the crew might be tired or having a bad day."
Pros: "Great short flight"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Before the flight boarded the crew had to be paved. They were busy chatting at a different gate while the whole flight had to wait for them. No sense of urgency. Very unprofessional. We had the front seat in first class. All night long the crew were talking loudly- difficult to sleep. They should be conscious of the passengers"

Pros: "On time!!!"
Cons: "Small chairs."
Cons: "We flew from Rome to JFK and arrived at 12:40 pm only to find out that our 3:30 pm flight had been cancelled a long time ago. No one had notified us of our new booking on a 9:10 flight to Boston. No one at American or British Airways could provide us with an earlier departure or compensate us to take alternative transportation. Our 9:10 flight was then delayed until 10:50 pm. We arrived in Boston at 12:02 am, 11 1/2 hours after our arrival at JFK from Rome. This was not a very friendly welcome home. We never would have booked such an extended delay as we only live 4 hours from New York City."

Cons: "The company did great, no complaints."
Pros: "One was great and one was not helpful and was condescending"

Even if there were several concurring factors, it it necessary to find a better procedure in order to avoid keeping passangers inside a plane with the prospect of taking off in the next half hour repeated every half hour! For the ones of us traveling with children it is even worse, and becomes a real nightmare."
Cons: "I paid extra for a better seat and it actually had less leg room than my standard seat on my Delta flight."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Everything. Flights canceled due to "weather" but every other airline was flying to these locations and the customer service experience was miserable at best."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Great communication from pilots, and the service was great."
Cons: "Very old fashioned plane, with one tv to watch a movie. I don't think I've flown on anything like that since the 90's."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Pros: "Overall easy navigation."
Cons: "More signs for terminal to terminal navigation."
Cons: "The entertainment system in my seat was broken. Was a bummer since we added a extra hour ground hold for weather."
Cons: "not enough space for legs, no food, flight attendants not especially nice, a long delay, ..."
Pros: "Big comfy plane"
Cons: "The orange juice"
Pros: "Quick little trip from San Diego to Phoenix. Crew made the extra effort to keep the plane cool despite the 120 degree temps in Phoenix."
Pros: "I initially booked my flight via Kayak for a cheap no hassle price"
Cons: "My initial booking was with Iberia Airlines and a few days prior to my Flight was switched over to American Airlines. Had i known I would be flying with AA, I would have opted for a more expensive option as I've a great disdain for AA. My flight from JFK was not the model aircraft I was promised and thus did not have ac chargers or Wifi in the plane. In my opinion, I was bait and switched via Kayak"
Pros: "Very timely. Boarding, take off, landing - all on time"
Cons: "Their restrictions for carry on size... had to check my small suitcase because it was over their size limit. I was able to carry it on on my trip going (fits perfectly in the overhead bin) but on the way back it was too big.."
Cons: "No choice in food. Flt attended said he would try to find a sandwich or snack left over from coach but he never offered anything."
Pros: "Safe, smooth, on time flight."
Cons: "Older plane. This was my return trip and the pane I took to my destination was much nicer. I feel like I should get a discount for an older plane."
Pros: "The flight from San Diego to Chicago went well. We left on time and arrived a little earlier than expected. I was worried about the weather delaying our flight once we go to Chicago but we encounter different problems. as I will explain next."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "The plane was freezing, then it was boiling hot. There was no happy medium. Never had this issue on a plane. The crew would not shut up. They talked endlessly on the speakers, which were blown out and had some sort of buzzing feedback which made listening unbearable. I hated every minute of this flight and was so glad to be off the plane."
Pros: "First class was Super. Good food and nice service."
Cons: "No screens on a new plane"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hour late crew rude"
Pros: "Polite, friendly helpful staff. Plane left on time."
Cons: "There were no window or aisle seats available for free, so I had to pay for the extra cost seats."
Cons: "Cancelled flight last minute and I was put on another flight hours later; with a 1.5 hour delay too; no credit or voucher provided"
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "the crew handled the lengthy delay as well as they could, seems like they didn't have any information either which is ridiculous."
Cons: "We boarded the plane at 1:30 for a 2:00 flight, there was a filter out in one of the three bathrooms; the option to take a 45 min flight without use of the restrooms was there, we were told to use the restroom if we needed to before the flight so everyone did... then we continued to sit on the ground for two hours. After two hours we were allowed to get off the plane, 20 minutes later back onto the plane, backed away from the gate and then pulled into a different gate and were told to get back off the plane. At this point we were given no info or direction but to go talk to special services if we want to re-book a different flight (sold out until at the earliest 8:15pm). After about an hour they announce they are re-boarding the original plane, takes another 45 minutes to board the plane, then we are told two separate issues caused this lengthy delay one was a filter in the bathroom and the other was a thermostat... seems like very basic standard maintenance issues that could have been avoided with routine checks. We were offered zero compensation, the trip took over 6 hours in all to fly from Philadelphia PA to Boston MA; a trip I could have driven in less time. I continue to have issues with American Airlines and "mechanical" delays, the last flight i was on From Charlotte to Baltimore was delayed an hour due to a strap in the cargo area. I don't understand the logic behind the decisions made to hold the full plane over 5 hours instead of taking a 45 minute flight, but I will say the crew was very apologetic and handled the situation well."
Pros: "Good flight."
Pros: "Very affordable! Traveling can be difficult, especially from Chicago O'hare - one of the busiest airports in the country - but everything was made easy for me and was a breeze!"
Cons: "No complaints here!"
Pros: "The flight was great. There was free in seat entertainment with tons of movies! The flight attendant gave me free fruit & cheese plate to go with my wine. Great service, easy fast boarding & the flight was early!"
Cons: "You need to add a not applicable choice to your list. I did not eat the snacks offered on the flight nor was there any entertainment that I could find."
Cons: "This flight was good, but when I fly in July I pay extra for protection and extra for better seat. Flight was canceled and they put me on different plane, which make my day in San Diego very difficult, because I miss my meeting, I didn't get better seat ither,instead I got seat in front of toilet and for 3 hours have to listen door bunging and terrible smell. I never been compensate for canceling flight or extra seat price.Nobody care even apologize. I hope that was just unforchened incident and I still like your company and still flying with AA, but I was really disappointed. Sincerely Vera Vasiley."

Over 2 hours on hold only for United to tell me to call back inside 24 hours of my requested departure (which was about 12 hours outside of the time I called). Bad customer service all around, both Kayak and United."

Cons: "Because of missed connection I had to go from Dulles to Reagan airport"

Pros: "Pilot communication was great"
Cons: "Gate and customer service agents are not helpful and not on the same page."
Cons: "On my flight back during taking off, I was throwing a trash away into a little bag that is also designed for vomiting. When I pushed a trash into the bag, I felt that it was already wet. Somebody vomited into it at the previous flight and placed it back to the seat's packet. I am not telling that it was the cleaning crew's mistake because it looked like unused until I pushed my hand into it, but it was still a very unpleasant experience and could be also a health hazard."
Pros: "Was very difficult time getting home on my schedule time. First they said they had no seating, then after calling mother explaining then had go back up she said she had seat. Worst flight I ever had with all these problems."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Pros: "Missed connection in SF to Medford due to other planes at our gate not allowing us to de-board on time to make my connection to Medford ...!!"
Pros: "I lost my wallet on the plane to San dieago. A very nice honest family turned it over to the crew. The baggage claim customer service agent ran back to the plane to retrieve it for me. It had everything I needed, my ID cash for my trip. I'm thankful for the honest people still in this world! Many thanks to the family and crew and uninteds customer service!!! A+++++"
Cons: "When I booked the flight, we chose seats but when we checked in they said we had never chosen seats and split up myself and my husband. To watch anything it was $7.99."
Pros: "nothing!!!!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and had to fend for ourselves to get to boston. Ended up getting to boston at 12:30 am when I was supposed to get there at 1 pm. Will try and get a voucher for this awful trip."
Pros: "the crew , the services ."
Cons: "They don't respect their seats . And they let seat a strong smoker on my side and his seat was begin me . 3 costumers don't seat on their own seat all mix it aaaggghhhh"
Cons: "No space, outdated non-working air, extremely hot and stuffy, VERY dry air, no screens"
Pros: "How nice the crew was"
Cons: "That I was in the middle and lost my phone at the airport"
Cons: "There was a delay after boarding / door closing. We just sat at the gate without explanation so we arrived late in Boston. I assume we were held for some reason by the tower but an update from the pilot would have been nice."

Cons: "Paying for luggage and food"
Pros: "Direct tv"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "One of the friendliest and most customer friendly flights I've had in a long time."
Pros: "The promptness on the flight -the friendly crew - arriving on time means the most, also the flight itself was smooth"
Pros: "They were on time."
Cons: "It was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the pilot kept us informed at all times. For example, we got to Dayton early and we sat on the Tarmac for about five minutes as there was another plane there. That was no problem. But, after plane left we sat there until it was time for us to arrive before ground crew came out. Then, we waited 20 minutes for our baggage. That was not your fault. That was the fault of the airport as it has happened to me before. The pilot was very apologetic and kept us informed. I appreciated that very much."
Cons: "I was so excited because there were TV's on each seat, but I could not use because the place where I had to plug in for sound was broken. That was a disappointment."
Pros: "not a damn thing"
Cons: "Weather delays are a typical part of travel. What's not typical are 5+ hour delays and sitting on the tarmac and watching your connection take off without you. First Class seats morphed into Economy center seats the next day, with nary a hotel room in sight. Thanks for nothing."
Pros: "We arrived 10 minutes early which allowed me to catch connecting ground transport"
