Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Good snack selection & free wifi"
Cons: "Plane had TVs but they weren’t allowing us to use them"
Pros: "The crew was nice. The pilot kept us informed - problem with paperwork so we could not depart and we were just sitting at the gate."
Cons: "The plane was very late and then in addition there was a problem with the paperwork so we were further held up. Meant we got in at a bad time for rush hour in NY. A 3 hour flight ended up taking a whole day. I had already left for the airport by the time I got an alert that the flight was delayed."
Pros: "Crew was courteous. Like the snacks and free drinks."
Cons: "If my online check in round trip didn't charge me $60 for one checked bag each way after the online check in stated my bags were included with the fare."
Pros: "Online check in, everyone was nice flight went as planned"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Perfect landing and great flight!"
Pros: "Jet Blue is our airline by choice. We have always had very good service from their staff and the only time there was a change because of weather, we were notified in order to make a change to our flight. We will continue to choose Jet Blue whenever possible."
Cons: "My only complaint with all of the airlines is allowing people to check their bags free at the gate when others have done the required thing of paying for checked bags. It is obvious that people are taking advantage if this. It would be great to see something more fair take place."
Pros: "I was impressed that the entire team seemed to care that we were being inconvenienced. It was a very nice touch that refreshments were being offered at the gate and that we were told when the next update would be. All updates were on time. In addition, our captain (Mark) came to the gate and spoke to all of us expressing his concern for what had happened to us. He also made a nice presentation on the plane and got us going right away. The free ear buds were also a great touch. Even though the situation was bad, you made a customer for life with the way your team responded to the situation. Well done!"
Cons: "Our flight was more than 2 hours late. :("
Cons: "Was not on time."

Pros: "Leg room was quite good."
Cons: "My long delay 2 hours and 15 minutes"
Cons: "I was not emailed or texted a copy of my boarding pass. I did receive for trip from detroit to Boston but not the return trip."
Pros: "The second flight had a great amount of leg room. They have cable tv and that was very entertaining. The app is very easy to use and made downloading our boarding passes super easy. I carried both mine and my fathers boarding pass right on my phone!"
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Beverage and snack service. Overhead storage. Leg room."
Cons: "Delayed departure. Poor planning for boarding. No offer for customer satisfaction."

Cons: "No WiFi or movies. Oh well...snacks were great."
Pros: "The on board crew was so accommodating. There was a screaming baby on board and one of the stewardesses did her best to make the baby stop crying. But Jose was the staff member that was closest to my seat and he was amazing! Funny, pleasant, great customer service! He made the difference in what could have been the plane ride from hell. Thank you Jose!!"
Cons: "When I booked my trip, I picked out seats but when I checked in, there was no seat on my boarding pass. So when I went to the gate they had my name on the top of the list and gave me a new boarding pass with a seat. When I got to that seat, someone was already sitting in that seat and when I looked at the boarding pass, it wasn't even my name that was on it. The stewardess found me another seat in row 24. Then when the tv did not work the whole flight. On top of that there was a screaming child most of the flight, which of course I saw not the fault of anyone. Needless to say I'm happy to be home"
Pros: "Hailey and Sam were great. The other was fine but didn’t demonstrate same enthusiastic customer service. Sam gave my kids wings. Disappointed that Beef it Up isn’t an option anymore."
Cons: "Food options. Ink on trays and seats."
Pros: "The TV"
Cons: "They advertise free Wifi, couldn't get it to work at all. They did not offer everyone drinks or a snack. It was an early flight, a snack and water would have been lovely but didn't see that from the crew. They also didn't let my girlfriend and I sit next to each other after requesting so."
Cons: "Normally I don’t complain, but from the jump this flight was a nightmare. I fly JB all the time but this time was not nearly as enjoyable. I asked my attendant 2 times to buy headphones. She never brought them and maybe she forgot but She sat in the front on her phone the whole flight which was just irritating. After being delayed (for no apparent reason) Then having to sit for 20+ minutes because of a “jet bridge that’s too cold” (aren’t these made for the out doors?) this JB flight was less than satisfactory."
Cons: "The entertainment device failed to work. . Screen crashed ."
Cons: "Delayed flights."

Pros: "The trip was a pleasant surprise being my first time with this company!!! Very pleasant and the flight attendants were excellent!!"
Cons: "JetBlue has changed its boarding sequence from calling groups of rows from the back of the plane towards the front after early boarders, mosaics and families with small children. While the first to board has not changed, the General boarding has changed so that window seats, middle and then aisle seats are boarded in that order according to zones. This seems to be in trial stage as the airline thinks this may facilitate and speed up boarding. In my past three flights, it has not changed any of these. What it has done is discriminate from those that book early and choose aisle seats in the back half of the plane as now those people have no room in the overheads for carryons when allowed to board and now have to gate check and go to baggage claim for luggage. JetBlue, please go back to previous boarding procedure."
Pros: "I liked being informed by the pilots of rough weather and not to worry of any problems."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Overall a very good experience. Jet Blue is legitimately more comfortable than most other airlines and the boarding process was streamlined and effective."
Cons: "The only movie options were to stream your own via their in flight internet. Not a terrible thing, but other airlines offer more movie options, even on short flights."

Pros: "In-flight customer service was great."
Cons: "My TV screen did not work."
Cons: "Hour late."
Pros: "Good flight was treated well and felt welcome with refreshments and snacks. The way it should be!"
Cons: "Unfair refund policy. We tried to cancel MONTHS ahead of time, upon early departure from our Peace Corps service. I don't feel airlines should have no refund policies starting from the date of purchase. There should be a window for refunds."
Pros: "From boarding to hospitality of all the crew members and the ease of the flight, It made it a great experience! I am not one who likes to fly but will definitely fly this airline again when the opportunity arises!"
Cons: "Terribly cold flight. When asked for a blanket, they wanted $5, which I couldn't pay because they wouldn't accept cash. 2 hours of complete misery. :("
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours delayed with little to no information. Terrible experi mce"
Pros: "Comfortable flight. The staff was very nice. They tried to reset the video system but some of the screens still stopped working after about 5 min"
Cons: "On this flight the Entertainment system offered free options. Unfortunately my video screen and about 20 others stopped working. flight was also delayed"
Cons: "Flights were delayed by four hours"
Cons: "3 hr delay due to crew rest issues. Alive can't manage their personnel and did nothing to accommodate stranded passengers"
Cons: "Our crew was delayed in Philadelphia hours before our flight yet we wer not notified until 20 minutes before our boarding that we would now have a 2.5 hour delay"
Pros: "Crew was good on board."
Cons: "I was sent to wrong gate (the one printed on my ticket in Dubai was wrong), then I asked agent the correct gate...he sent me to another wrong gate clear across the terminal. When I got there, was directed (again) to the other end of the terminal...10 minute dash....and almost missed my connecting flight. Flight crew was nice....calmed me down but lady in seat next to me was rude.....not anyone's fault but hers :)"
Pros: "Service. Friendliness. Atitude."
Cons: "Gate at Logan had a rat running around. Flight entertainment worked sporadically - many seats had broken entertainment equipment that didn't work at all. Seats and armrests were dirty - my daughter and I wiped them down with handsanitzer and kleenex."
Pros: "I had a lost bag and the baggage people were some of the most helpful I've ever encountered. The flight was nice and well done, but in the midst of some hard bag stuff, your people were great. In particular. Jennifer Novak was the lady who helped me in Detroit and was outstanding."

Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was pleasant and looked like they enjoyed working in the air."
Cons: "Our second time on a 787 Dreamliner across the Atlantic as about the same as the the first. The seat pitch is very tight so when a passenger reclines into the next row the seatback nearly touches your face. The Dreamliner seats seem to be very hard and it's difficult to get comfortable."
Pros: "Helpful crew. Arrived early."
Cons: "Plane was cold. Entertainment system didn't navigate very easily and choices seemed fairly limited on this (older?) plane."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Wish the seat was more comfortable. Landing was jittery and bumpy."
Pros: "New plane. Great movie selection. More stylish seats + bathroom. Overall very good and I think Delta has really made an effort to improve it's service. It's noticeable."
Cons: "Plane felt very dry compared to others. The electrical plug outlet jams right at around your knee level. Bread was cold and rock hard (seriously, can we not come up with a good solution for this?)."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Very short flight. Not much to say"
Cons: "Not much to say"
Cons: "Online check in didn’t work. Called Delta 800# and rep said I needed to wait till I got to airport. Airport rep said I needed to use the KLM flight number, not the Delta number.W"
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Pros: "Very orderly."
Pros: "The cree"
Cons: "The stupid boarding pricesd"
Pros: "My travel was booked by a third party, so they selected a flight with a 37 minute layover. We left LAX ~30+ minutes late, so I less than 5. minutes to make my connection. I'm pretty sure the connecting flight waited for us to make it and the crew on the LAX flight tried to expedite those with VERY short connection off the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "SHORT connection times and unspecified delay made for a stressful flight."
Pros: "My upgrade and breakfast were fabulous!"
Pros: "Excellent very good good"
Cons: "Good service good"

Cons: "I felt too cramped in to the plane. Our KLM FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED THE DAY BEFORE THE FLIGHT."
Pros: "on time, clean, prompt. no problem."
Cons: "The service was terrible. Also a ripped off base on I was expecting to be treated as if I was on Virgin nothing compares to it . Delta plane making a loud noise we can even heard anything when pilot does announcement. I want my money back or I should be reinbuise some how."
Pros: "Efficient boarding process and friendly crew. Timely arrival is the good enough for these regional flights. Comfort+ seats are good."
Pros: "Like the online check in and advanced seat assignment"
Cons: "It's only a 45 min flight so no ptoblems"
Pros: "The Airbus A330 business class seating was more spacious and comfortable than the Boeing 767 I flew to Paris from ATL."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."
Cons: "Expected a two hour layover, but due to delay I ended up waiting more that 14 hours at the terminal."
Cons: "For some reason I had to get my seat at the gate and waste extra time for it"
Pros: "Flight was quick, crew efficient"
Cons: "Despite having this flight booked for over a month I was not issued a seat until gate check in and had to sit and wait till they figured out their "overbooked" situation. I had to approach the desk four times because they wouldn't give me any indication of what zone I should line up for, and the desk crew were rude. Ended up being the last to board."
Cons: "Long lines trying to resolve delayed flights. Ni weather issues reported."
Pros: "Everything was great from the check in process to the de-planing in Detroit. When we checked in at SLC the agent used my last name, which showed me the extra mile Delta staff will go to make the travel with them professional and curious. The flight left on time and when we arrived in Detroit our bags were already there waiting for us. Couldn't have asked for more!"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Window seat"
Pros: "Short flight 21 min"
Cons: "Held on plane in Kzo awaiting clearance from Detroit . Kzo airport was great, clean, friendly."
Pros: "Crew was helpful, plane was clean and food is decent"
Cons: "Have to request wheelchair service twice as the receiving staff handing the wheelchair to another company for departure staff. Only one counter handles wheelchair request at each leg. They are so strict with liquids that all baby foods had to put in a separate bin and we had to go to another security point for clearance. It took 2.5 hours to go through all that, that is with wheelchair priority! Boarding was horrible at the gate."
Pros: "Even though we had to tax over to the de-Icing pad before we could take off from Philadelphia, we were still in the air by our original departure time. Our flight was accompanied by tail winds that got us to Detroit early giving me plenty of time to make my connecting flight."

Pros: "Very friendly and curtious crew made the flight very pleasant"
Pros: "The staff was helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a crew member no show and eventually cancelled. I was unable to go to Iowa to see my family."
Pros: "Delayed flight from SRQ to ATL with tarmac delay of 1 hour. An FA reconfigured the in-seat entertainment systems to make all movies free to pass the time."
Cons: "Why board if you know there's a weather-related ground stop at ATL? I'd rather have waited out the delay in the terminal at SRQ than sit on the plane. At least then I could get something for breakfast; this was a flight scheduled for the butt crack of dawn."
Cons: "Sat in airport for 8 hours while flight was delayed an hour at a time only to be cancelled after 8 hours of waiting. Had to rent car and drive 10 hours to destination"
Pros: "The service on the plane was very nice, the woman flight attendant was great. The drinks definitely helped get my through the deafening flight."
Cons: "I was not aware of how loud the last row on the plane would be, for two hours we had to listen to the roar of a jet engine, it would be nice if there was ear plugs we could be provided for this. Or if we were made aware of this before the flight started."
Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived about 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Seats are thick but zero lumbar. Back too short at shoulders and I'm only 5'8""

Pros: "The crew was great, the pilot was talented and the on boarding process was quick and smooth."
Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable."
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours late to leave and American did nothing to try and remedy the situation. Unacceptable that we are this late. I missed my meetings and they won’t offer any kind of voucher for future travel. But yet we have to pay for change fees!?!? I will absolutely avoid flying American."
Cons: "I tried to mark all EXCELLENT, but I couldn't get the circle to color in the circle excellent."
Pros: "Service and flight was excellent"
Cons: "They were great"
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly."
Cons: "The boarding staff member was extremely overwhelmed being the only person at the desk. She visibly looked frazzled & made it well known. It made me feel insecure about the flight. Then the maintenance crew didn’t notice that there was a dead bird in one of the engines until after we were fully boarded and had to sit on the plane for an hour over our expected time. I appreciated the fact that they were being through for our safety, but catch that before you have people board."
Pros: "On-time, 20 minutes early!"
Pros: "Flight was bumpy because of storms in the area but the crew did a great job of keeping it calm and making sure passengers were taken care of."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac when we landed for 20 mins for a reason not really made clear. The captain said that the alley was blocked but didn’t really keep us informed other wise."

Cons: "Movie selection on long flights not impressive ."
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"
Cons: "Nothing bad on this particular flight but im traumatized from my auckland to sydney flight"
Cons: "Getting baggage took an hour"
Pros: "Overall, my experience aboard America Airlines was great!"

Pros: "Great staff"

Cons: "The big delay (almost 4 hours) makes me loose my trip to Canada on the same day."

Pros: "The AA app for entertainment works well, friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 90+ minutes, yet they didn't tell anyone until 90 minutes prior to departure. They knew of system delays and should have updated many hours before the flight but they didn't and had us all there very early waiting around doing nothing."
Pros: "Snacks and Beverage"
Pros: "Always on time and always comfortable."
Pros: "The crew is good"
Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "Easy direct flight from Detroit to Miami. The flight was on time, and we had no problems. The cost of the flight was approximately $180 round trip, which I thought was a good value."

Cons: "Delayed three separate times, American Airlines employees were rude when asked why the flight kept getting delayed. Arrived 3 hours later than expected."
Cons: "We were waiting for 6 hours then our flight got cancelled. We got another flight which is in the second day !! And I am going back to MIAMI on Sunday 7:00 am . What a bad airlines!!"
Cons: "Flight from Ny to Detroit was delayed for 2 hrs. Coming back was worse after multiple delays, they cancelled the flight. they put me on a flight for next day with 2 connections which will reach ny almost 20 hrs later, no aplogises, no hotel room. After more calls put me in another United flight later that night which also finally got cancelled. I had to book a new flight with delta and paid $460 on the spot for that. Still awaiting my refund from American for the return leg which was cancelled and left a lady traveling alone stranded at Detroit airport in the night. Apology or compensation -- forget it, you will never get that! Only now if they can refund my cancelled flight..."
Pros: "Finally getting to my final destination and out of DFW."
Cons: "The flight was originally scheduled to take off at 8:20 pm, but due to several delays did not end up getting off the ground until after 11 pm. After being in the air for about 45 minutes we were informed that there were issues with the engine and that we would be turning around and heading back to Dallas. By this point it was after midnight, and although I was appreciative that safely is a priority, there was no communication as to what the next steps were. After landing we were finally told that we would have to deplane, and after we sat around the gate for awhile we were informed that the flight would be delayed until 5 am. Being 12:50 am at this point a hotel would have been nice, but we were informed that AA was "out of hotels" but that if we wanted we could have a $12 food voucher to use at the one restaurant that was open several terminals over. The AA employee assisting in handing out the food vouchers seemed extremely unapologetic about the situation which didn't help with the frustration everyone was feeling. I will not be booking with AA again, and will be passing along my negative experience to family and friends. It is worth spending the extra money on a ticket for an airline that is more reliable with better customer service."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and they did their best to keep all the passengers comfortable and happy."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment to rate"
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Delay disorganized staff that was not friendly or helpful lost luggage"
Cons: "Plane out dated . It was sad. Tinny seats. And again they boarded all group 1 at once. And all of group 2 at once. Should of done by so many seats\rows. It was horrible. I wouldn't fly American again. Unless I won a trip"
Cons: "The only reason for the one star, is that there was no entertainment or did on the flight. So those categories didn't apply. For me, in my flight experience, it's to get to where i need to be and not to be entertained. Food and drinks aren't needed, I can get that when i get to my destination."
Pros: "On board crew were friendly."
Cons: "The lady working the gate said they do not upgrade service members to first class and could not upgrade our seats. She told us that all American Airlines have different policys in different states. Which is strange."
Pros: "The ease of boarding"
Pros: "seats are comfortable"
Cons: "1)Very cold cabin atmosphere. 2)Very noisy passengers wish the attendants can announce saying "since its a late night flight we request our passengers to keep their voices low" Some people just don't have common sense"
Pros: "On time. Announcer at gate could have been a little clearer."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly. Very nicely designed plane."

Cons: "Waited until boarding to give me a seat"
Cons: "I'm still here never got out"
Pros: "Staff very friendly as always."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Paid for Wi-Fi and it cut out halfway through the flight and was extremely slow so I wasn't able to get much work done. Not worth the purchase."
Cons: "My flight last week they had us board and then de plane do to plane maintenance after I traveled litterly all day it added an extra hour. Then this flight Washington connection to Detroit from raleigh the pilot never showed up and extra hour went by, we got a new pilots but, then leading to faulty paperwork that took another hour and thirty minutes after boarding the plan to get sorted. When we got that sorted they then proceeded to tell us that the flight atendent had to leave and we had to wait another 20 min for another atendent to arrive before finally making our way to Detroit. They said to file a complaint and we would be compensated for our wait. Not sure if this is the right spot but I'm giving it a go. Thank you Keith Www.keithschmidt.com"
Pros: "I liked that I finally made it home despite all the drama."
Cons: "I didn't like that I booked a flight nearly 2 months ago to only find out I didn't have a seat. I do understand its legal but I don't get how you are putting customers first by causing this drama. I understand how that DR felt when your guards ripped him out of his seat. I spent nearly 3 hours trying to find babysitters and alternate rides all while the snotty lady at the desk kept saying "you may not be flying out today but I cant tell you for sure". So to insure the bottom line you overbook then bump people at your leisure? This little game effects many lives above and beyond just the passengers. I don't plan on booking with United ever again. Why would I? There are many other options that take customer service more seriously. I would love to speak to someone higher up in this organization. But, im sure that will never happen."
Cons: "The flight attendants and airport staff in Chicago and Detroit suck. San Fran is so much better."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight because of delay. Second flight delayed."
Pros: "Efficient and on time"
Pros: "Kind flight attendants"
Cons: "This was a tiny cramped plane and didnt have much comfort."
Pros: "I liked that when the plane actually arrived to newark that the boarding was swift. The pilot and flight crew were good."
Cons: "The plane was late. I flew out of Detroit because it was cheaper than flying out of Cleveland where I live. So due to this flight being late I had to pay more then expected to get my car out of the parking garage and got home an hour and a half later than expected which got me home at 3am versus 130am (original time I would have been home IF the plane would have been on time)."

Pros: "The crew on United was very helpful on my July 2 flight"
Cons: "You sold me a ticket on Lufthansa. When I got to Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris I waited 45 minutes in line to check in with Lufthansa. When I got to the counter they said they had no record of my reservation. When I showed them the Lufthansa reservation they told me it actually was for a United flight, even though it clearly said Lufthansa . I had to wait another 45 minutes in the United line to retrieve my boarding pass, then about another hour to go through passport control and security. I barely made my flight. I will never make a reservation through Kayak again. I am deleting your app."

Pros: "The seats were more confortable. They could be a bit taller for head room but space between seats and the width of seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "The crew seemed very unpleasant. The guy (head crew) was very rude. When asking us to do things he just said it with a tone that was very unneeded. You could tell he didn't want to be there. The lady flight artendant was nice just facially her expressions make her look stand off ish. They talked about passengers to each other in the aisle ways and made comments that "they've talk to this lady each several times and she's not listening". Seemed like private conversation they could try and have."
Cons: "I had to see assistant bc plane was full. Had to get economy plus and pay for that. There weren't even snacks on the flight. Not a good experience overall."
Cons: "A lady with a dog on a leash was allowed on board. I do not think it was a service dog. In the gate area, the dog was encouraged to get up on the seat. The owner also walked the dog over to a couple to visit, and the couple had a large cat in a carrier. The dog owner did not see the cat in the carrier for a few minutes. Then, when she did realized it she did not move away. You could see that the dog noticed the cat and was getting excited, and proceeded to bark. I don't know why she didn't back away when she noticed the cat. On board, the dog, still on a leash, didn't stay under her feet. The owner did not hang on to the leash."
Cons: "The flight was late/ delayed over 6 hours. The crew was rude and very unprofessional. This was the worst experience i have ever had flying. I can honestly say I will Never fly United airlines again. I understand that flights get delayed, but when every worker at the flight check in desk, and flight attendants are rude and have a smug attitude as if they don't care then at that point i walk away from ever doing business with you again."
