Pros: "Food was really good, but the cabin crew were up to JetBlue's normal outstanding service"
Cons: "The range of movies is still pretty poor (if you're a frequent JetBlue traveller)"

Pros: "I flew JetBlue to and from Costa Rica, which included two connecting flights. All four of my flights boarded, took off and landed on time and in at least one instance, early! The staff are always great, free drinks and snacks, plus personal entertainment for all. One of my planes was brand spanking new - it was gorgeous and oh so comfy!

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"

Cons: "The Jet Blue counter person was not helpful at all providing direction to us from International Terminal to Domestic terminal C. No help at all to passengers who are not familiar with Logan Airport. Major major disappointment!"

Cons: "Checked bag pickup was on the opposite side of the terminal, with inadequate signage."

Pros: "Direct TV offered excellent list of channels."

Pros: "On time departure and early arrival. Excellent cabin crew - very attentive and generous with snacks. Reliable free wifi."
Cons: "I couldn't get a seat assignment ahead of arrival at airport without paying for an Even More Space seat. Then I ended up in an exit row with no window. Not cool JetBlue. I'm a longtime True Blue member and MasterCard holder; you'll be hearing from me about this."

Pros: "Buenos protocolos COVID"
Cons: "En la reservación de kayak no aparece el código de reserva de vuelo de cada aerolínea. Para encontrarlo hay que buscar en la página help.kayak.

So I had only snacks."

Pros: "See abovw"

Pros: "Very smooth day at the airport and in travel. Thank you Avianca"

Pros: "They don't feel cheap like the USA airlines these days. Free entertainment, real food, free alcoholic drinks.

Cons: "- My first of two flights was canceled which was poorly communicated after waiting in a queue for two hours. I am still even now unsure as to why the flight was canceled as no one bothered to inform us as to what the reason was. - On my new connecting flight from San Salvador to Bogotá there was only two meal options (both meat) which I do not eat and was told to just take the meat out of the meal as there was no other options. Would have been helpful to have known before the flight so I could have bought my own food to take on the plane. - The charging points on the back of the seat were inactive"

Pros: "Dame"

Pros: "The stewardess helped me find my seat for the second leg of the trip with a quick phone call. The food was good, not dry or tasteless."
Cons: "The woman who initially checked me in didn't give me two tickets for both my flights. It was the same plane so I thought I was in the same seat for both but I wasn't. I thought the planes had a screen for each seat, but they didn't si everyone had to watch the same thing."

Cons: "massive delay in the counter"

Tried to get bottle of water because I was dying of thirst and staff could not sell a bottle of water. Only give a 3oz cup full. Which was gone in 2 seconds."

Pros: "Staff was courteous, smart and accommodating. All staff were bilingual in English and Spanish. Everything was clear and easy to understand."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Yes"

Pros: "Aeromexico’s service during check in and boarding is the worst I’ve experienced so far. They are so unorganized that wait lines are so long and can take hours that you can easily miss your flight. The staff is just around not helping at all, not doing much to put order and make lines move faster. It’s not the first time this happens to me, it’s just the way they operate and not setup for busy travel days."

Cons: "I brought the same Samsonite carry on luggage piece that I’ve used on multiple major airlines (Avianca, United, American, Copa, etc.) with no problems, and AeroMexico says it’s too big, the wheels didn’t fit into the sizing bin. Super frustrating if one of the most popular luggage manufacture makes a “carry-on” bag, airlines should realize people will be arriving with the expectations that they can use it as a carry on. Anyways I’m out $58 both ways ($116). I will not fly with AeroMexico again because of this simple fact."

Cons: "No wifi, no movies, no power outlets. The budget airline I flew to Mexico (Volaris) was nicer."

Pros: "All the service they give is excellent."

And long wait(more than an hour for each flight) at the boarding queue.Even the business class seats were very dirty. No vegetarian food. The TV remote did not work. And there were only 4 movies in the entertainment section and nothing else. No TV series or any other videos. The crew was courteous. That was the only good thing about the flight. Highly disappointed."

Cons: "Se reserved and paid the flight months ago and reserved our seats . The issue was that no seats were really reserved and we had to get seats are the end of the plain"

Pros: "The plane/Pilot got us home."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable. The plane was old and had the drop down video screens. This was terrible- we couldn’t see the one closest to us, only the one further away.

Pros: "La atencion."
Cons: "Faltan buenas películas y buena música."

Pros: "Aeromexico puts delta, United, American to shame. Every time I fly with Aeromexico they have on-time flights, food and drinks included, friendly service and excellent price for tickets. No last second delays or flight rescheduling as happens with US carriers. I'll take Aeromexico ANY day over the shitty US airlines. And for those complaining about info not being readily available in English, it doesn't hurt to learn a little Spanish"
Cons: "They ran out of Corona."

Pros: "Coffee, SMILES on faces of the Capt., Stewards, Professional Appearances by AM staff from beginning to end. (unlike American Airlines) We had a snafu at boarding and a Miss Gina Diaz in San Jose Airport was MOST super helpful. We ar3e booking more flights on this airlines! FOOD was AWESOME.... really!"

Pros: "The crew appeared to be working very hard to meet passenger requests. They were polite and pleasant even though the flight was packed."
Cons: "Seats WAY too close together. Very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Arriving safely"
Cons: "Old plane (felt like I was back in the '90s), late departure, airport moved gate multiple times."

Pros: "I was scheduled for a flight much later but was able to be accommodated on the earlier flight in the back row. The crew was great and even had food for me. I had the whole row to myself except when the crew wanted to rest, which was no problem!"
Cons: "Baggage was delayed coming off of the plane, which was annoying since it was a direct flight to SFO and there wasn't an explanation on why the delay."

Pros: "They never announced the flight details and switched gates without telling the passengers. Making me miss my flight and when i went to them. They said it was too late to board the plane."
