The flight we had scheduled with them was canceled and there was no email or form of communication sent to tell us before arriving to the airport. We found out while attempting to "check in." They were hesitant in providing food vouchers for us when our original flight that was supposed to leave early in the morning (6:30am), now left at (5:59pm).

The entertainment unit allowed me to watch the Denver Broncos game live which helped lessen the delayed departure and uncomfortable seating.

Uncomfortable seating....too crowded!! We had a delayed departure by 30-40 minutes because of a computer download issue. Too many folks carrying carry-ons delayed boarding. I wish folks were not encouraged to go that route but to check baggage. This time of year gets even tougher with folks carrying Christmas presents and over sized personal items. Ugh. Not fun to travel this time of year.

1) Boarding process was not clear on the ticket or anywhere (really not a big deal). 2) When reading about perks and restrictions after we bought tickets, the company mentions certain "classes" of tickets..i.e. "Blue", "Blue Plus" and "Blue Flex" but since I had already bought our tickets, I had no idea which type of fare we bought, since Jet Blue does not provide that information on your ticket information once purchased.

Although the bag was in the overhead bin and contained only a military uniform item, a GPS, and several pieces of mail with my name and address on them, I was told there was no guarantee hey would find my bag. A sixth grader with mediocre enthusiasm could easily have reunited me with my bag. IT HAD MY NAME AND ADDRESS INSIDE. Its been 6 days and the best answer I got was "We are not responsible for items you leave on our aircraft. We don't know if anyone even found it". Really? Is this that difficult to figure out? Can a strange bag left on a plane be overlooked for six days? That scares me.
