Pros: Entertainment was great! Great selection of movies!

Cons: The earbuds are terrible, I personally don't do well with that style - i would do research to see what the most universal type head phones are used because these were the worst. Also the control to my entertainment was on the right side, where the middle person kept changing my channels and volume. I would have liked for it to be on maybe the left side where no one else could touch it. (I sat at a window seat) The guy next to me fell asleep and so it was super hard to get to my controller (although there is one on the computer, he was still messing with it with his elbow).

Pros: The flight going from LAX to NYC was considerably better in terms of service. Staff was more accommodating, friendlier, and over all more pleasant.

Cons: Our flight returning from NYC back LAX wasn’t Pleasant at all. The staff was rude, unaccommodating, seemed angry and as if they didn’t want to be there . Any request made by a passenger seem to annoy them. A lot of the time they never even followed through with the request.

Good 7.3

Pros: Because of the gov’t shutdown I arrived early fearing the worst of delays and to my delight there was ez pz entry into the airport getting through security was relatively easy and although there is no longer curbside check in it was not crowded few long lines and once I mastered the kiosk .. got my boarding pass and tag for a checked bag .... ez and no long line

Cons: I don’t like the fact that Jet Blue has nobody to help with getting your boarding pass and bag tags .. for seniors like myself who sometimes need digital Aylin .. no Personnel to help and if itvwasn’t For a delightful savvy young woman whom I asked for help I’d still be at that kiosk when I travelled Alaska sirlinescthey had people there to assist you
