I liked the local Minnesota drinks on the menu. Having MN beer was a fantastic touch (Surly Furious is the best!). Sadly, on my departing flight they were all out though.

That you have to pay for drinks. And no peanuts or small snacks was a bummer - that's just cheap (you have to pay for those too)

Boarding was quick and efficient.

The seats in my row were filthy. Not only was there food on the seats but there was crusted food on the pull down tray. When this was brought to Peter's (the steward's) attention he handed me a napkin and water to clean it myself. Absolutely unacceptable. I don't think I'll be flying JetBlue again.

The crew was extremely helpful and friendly! I really appreciate their efforts and professionalism.

The seats are typically more comfortable. Towards the end of the flight I experienced lower back pair which is not typical for myself.

Nonstop flight always a plus. Ground crew at baggage check, etc. we're super helpful and friendly.

Flight departure was delayed from JFK over an hour and returning flight from LAX delayed departure as well. Very inconvenient for the high fare price. Seems Jetblue has a history of poor time performance. Would probably not book with them again.

Entertainment options were good

Boarding was chaotic - flight sat on the tarmac for an hr going and about 25 mins arriving. We were traveling with a baby and did not feel like the crew was very helpful or accommodating. Restrooms were filthy - flight attendants didn't clean them at all. My husband and I were assigned separate seats so one of us was separated from the baby and the whole point of having our own row to ease traveling with a 16 month old was negated. Overall, extremely disappointing

Anytime the flight attendant would bring someone a bottle of water she would unexpectedly drop it into people's laps. I'm a man... it hurt. The crew was all around rude and snotty.

I liked the entertainment options.

The seats are hard. There is no space. There was only one bathroom available to coach. We were stuck on the plane for 3 hours before it took off due to mechanical issues. The flight attendants did not handle the frustrated passengers well. They frequently gave people attitudes, when they were asking about the progress of the mechanical issue resolution. The food selection was small to begin with and what they actually had on the plane was even a smaller selection.

The ambient lighting used throughout the cabin was too bright and stimulating to let me fall asleep in an overnight flight, should have been dimmed more or turned off. The seats did not help the comfort levels either, should have been able to recline a tad bid more. The carry-on-bag situation is getting out of control, you should crack down on people who bring too many bags or oversized bags that should be checked in instead.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.

The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days.
