Reviews Of JetBlue:

By K Edwards:

It was the first time that I am flying with JetBlue from Detroit to Ft Lauderdale and I’m writing this review while I’m in the air because there is the availability of free wi-fi. Here every passenger can enjoy incredible services from the talented and well-skilled staff. The unique thing which I notice is that the captain introduced himself before we flew. When we hit turbulence the captain made sure not only to switch the seatbelt sign on and he took the time to reassure the passengers. He made the passengers feel so much safer. The seats had plenty of room and the services of the staff were also excellent.

By W Jones:

I have flown in JetBlue from Philadelphia to Fort Lauderdale and I must say that I was impressed from beginning to end. The check-in staff was helpful and friendly. The flight attendants were excellent. The departure and arrival experience both was lawless. The onboard amenities are exceptional.

By L Morris:

I flew home last night flight from Las Vegas to New York JFK in flight 1248. This was the first flight I have flown where the captain came over the PA and made an announcement assuring us about the turbulence. I felt he did everything he can possibly do to try and avoid the constant turbulence to make a peaceful flight. I will make sure to make JetBlue as my first flight choice in the future.

By Tony Spitale:

The only criteria to book my connecting flight from Boston to JFK on this airline were the very convenient departure time. I had not flown on this airline before nor did I have any idea what I was going to expect. From entering the Terminal C in Boston until leaving, it was a unique and breathtaking experience. Everything looked as classy like out of some Hollywood movie as there were no lines at security and I was through in a breeze. Doors were closed on time. The seats were comfortable even for me as a tall guy. I took advantage of the live television broadcast on the individual screens and caught up with the latest political and weather news. Without any doubt, Jet Blue is the best American domestic carrier I have ever flown on.
