JetBlue Airways is one of the leading American low-cost airlines. It is headquartered in Queens, New York, with another corporate office in Cottonwood Heights, Utah.

Founded in August 1998, JetBlue is a relative newcomer in the airline industry. Several original employees had previously been with Southwest. JetBlue has a lot in common with Southwest, being a cost-affordable carrier. 

Although a low-cost carrier, it strives to provide quality amenities, including in-flight entertainment, TVs in each seat, and satellite radio. 

Over 90 destinations are available in the Americas, with lots of domestic US options, as well as destinations in The Caribbean, Bahamas, Bermuda, Barbados, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Mexico, Peru, and Puerto Rico.

The Good

  • Discounted Fares
  • Wi-Fi and In-flight Entertainment
  • Baggage Protection

Discounted Fares

JetBlue does a really good job of providing discounted fares for customers. JetBlue does more for its customers than some larger carriers.

We really liked that JetBlue was one of the companies in the industry that didn't have a refundable/non-refundable fare option, meaning that if JetBlue cancels a customer flight, the customer doesn't lose their fare. We found that this was an issue with other carriers, such as Virgin America. If your flight gets canceled, JetBlue will let you change your flight without the flight change fee.

Another thing that we really liked about JetBlue is its policy honoring lower fares. If a customer requests the lower fare 14 days after they purchased their ticket, prior to the date of departure, they can receive the lower fare. However, effective June 30 of 2015, there is a fee based on the fare option selected on tickets exchanged 15 days or more after the date originally booked. These fees are:

  • Blue: $70
  • Blue Plus: $60
  • Blue Flex: $0

Wi-Fi and In-flight Entertainment

We also liked that every JetBlue flight has free basic Wi-Fi, as well as a television at every seat. JetBlue's Wi-Fi is more reasonable than the service offered by Gogo, which charges for basic Internet service. JetBlue has a FlyFi program that lets customers get basic Internet for free, but after that, the Internet costs $9/hour for their premium service.

Baggage Protection

JetBlue has a good baggage protective policy. With smaller carriers, such as Virgin America, we found that the baggage limit liability was not quoted in an exact dollar amount. Some carriers even suggested that their customers should purchase travel insurance rather than guarantee protection for a bag. 

thumb_down

The Bad

  • Customer Complaints

Customer Complaints

Customer feedback focuses on individual customer service experiences as well as the updated baggage policy, which charges $25 for the first bag, which used to be free.

Some customers reported issues with flights being changed on short notice and some cancellations and delays associated with plane mechanical issues. Some customers reported delays when calling the JetBlue customer service line. 

gavel

The Bottom Line

We recommend JetBlue. We found that their in-flight Wi-Fi is better than some other carriers, such as Delta. We also liked that the insurance coverage and baggage liability was similar to some of the higher-end airlines in the industry. Additionally, the company's flight cancellation policy is very fair for a budget airline.

Jet Blue is always my go to for flights! Not only do I have plenty of space during these trying times, but I had plenty of space previously. The flight attendants are incredibly nice as well as professional. The flight is always very smooth as well. Hadn't experienced any delays flying Jet Blue either. What I really enjoy is seeing the other decorative planes. I seen one with a NY Jets design on it. Pretty awesome!

JetBlue is actually really affordable. The customer service was great, and the flight attendants were pretty good. I would fly with JetBlue again, but they don't always fly where I want to go. Where I live, Delta is a better option for just getting to the cities I need to get to. Wish JetBlue would do more out of our city!

This is one of my favorite airlines. The staff are very friendly and talk to the customers about whatever. The prices are good and can get good deals online. They have good service and are great with kids always giving them extra snacks and have full cans for beverages. Good movie choices. Usually on time and if they are running behind schedule the staff are good at keeping the consumers up to date about their flights.

What a fantastic airline. Not only do you get free snacks on their flights, their customer service is incredible. 2 separate incidents led to this opinion. About 2 years ago we were traveling with our 3 year old. It was a long flight ( Boston to Long Beach) we failed to charge the iPad so we didn’t have the little guy’s favorite cartoons. The flight attendant gave us access to the movies channel free of charge, so the little guy would be entertained. Fast forward 2 years and I’m traveling from Boston to San Francisco. The worst happens: I leave my phone on the plane. On that phone is all the medical information I need to get my treatment. What a nightmare! We call JetBlue they take down our info and assure us they will do whatever they can to get the phone back. Luckily some good soul turns it into the flight attendant. JetBlue fedexed my phone bs k to me the next day. At their expense! And even enclosed a note that they hope I feel better. There is no customer service better than JetBlue.

From the moment you board the plane, till you get to your room pod... the experience was surreal. Erick and Kemmifer provided five star service throughout the flight with just the right touch. The breakfast was just the right amount and I could have had more if I chose, but I eat light when flying. The chair had three options, regular sit up right, recline 180, or lay flat. I did a little of each during my flight to Vegas. Plenty of outlets to charge your devices, more legroom than is needed and free drinks too. Just overall an incredible experience and it will be hard to fly any other way when I travel 4+ hours.

I have been waiting to fill out this survey. I am a frequent flyer of other airlines and this was my first time flying JetBlue (due to lower prices) and I must say I am impressed to the fullest extent and will be a repeat customer. I have been raving about the customer service, internet strength, and tv to everyone I encounter. I mean to begin this review all the JetBlue employees I encountered on my trip were extremely nice and welcoming. The unlimited snacks is a plus, but the internet signal strength allowed me to stream Netflix with no problem and also work with no problem. The direct tv access was also phenomenal and FREE! I love FREE. Everything was amazing and can't wait to fly JetBlue again.

Bruce Worcester, MA

The wife and I fly international on October 24 and November 7 of this year with both trips being uneventful. Both flights took off on time and arrived ahead of schedule. People were civil when it was announced that extra space and early boarding go first to board, as I have seen others on other airlines just get in line to get on board whether it was their turn or not to get on. Plenty of overhead bin space and lots of room for stretching your legs during the flight. The stewards were very helpful and attentive to everyone's needs. The pilots even let me take a picture of them at the controls while going through their pre flight checklist. Price for our flights included our bags, as we had purchased them before their scaled pricing matrix went into effect. We will book with them again, as our flights out of Boston are direct to the island that we go to.

I love Jet blue. I fly nearly every six weeks or so. It's always been a good experience. Customer Service by telephone is exceptionally good when you need them. I usually book on line which is so easy but on occasion need assistance from customer service for changes or questions. Announcements at the gate could be more clear sometimes. Overall experience is great. The luggage fee is a business decision I'm sure, less baggage handlers I guess, but certainly liked it better before. Now, SO MUCH CARRY ON! Often not being limited to a carry on and one personal item. I still check my small 20" bag.

I've been flying JetBlue since they started flying out of Boston, I think 2003. In the beginning I still went back and forth with other airlines but soon found I got the best service, prices, etc., with JetBlue. I fly exclusively with them now. I haven't flown with them since the new policy has gone into effect (although I am this week) so we'll see how things have changed or not. I may not be thrilled with the baggage fees but they're not as bad as other, if you know in advance you're bringing one it's only $15 . Over the years any complaints I've had (they've been few) have been immediately addressed and handled to my satisfaction. I wish all companies had their customer service.

kudos to the counter agent/ gate agents in PBI last month. Sorry did not get his name. After missing the US flt to CLT JFK due to oversold, as a AA empl I went to Jetblue counter asking if any room on flight to NYC. He said yes and if I could get a ZED tkt fast I could get on PBI LGA flight that was delayed. I pulled out I pad got a ticket and he put me on list in record time. I got stuck in TSA line since pre check was not recognized. Thought I definitely missed that delayed flight. Still having hope I was running to gate to see a man with a radio step into concourse asking me if I was going to NY. Since flight had a gate hold they let me on. No only was everyone was very nice I got a exit window seat. it was a great flight. crew was great also. Great Customer Service Jetblue.....

I flew JetBlue last summer with our 3 boys and had a very nice experience, especially whereas we were flying without my husband...we were comfortable in our seats and happy to be able to see a tv screen that not only followed the pattern or our trip to Orlando, Florida and back it was with some music channels and shows. I also flew myself to Florida to visit with my DAD & StepMOM alone in January 2015 and was happy and most happy was to be able to fly back 1 day earlier due to severe snowstorms ready to hit New England. The other convenience was flying in and out of Worcester Airport. Now that is great! I am hoping to make plans for a trip soon with husband and boys and most definitely would fly JetBlue. However, I would just need to learn about my points and how to use them. Just wish they flew to more airports in Florida. Thanks for a wonderful experience. JetBlue all the way... <3

Best service, seating and staff friendliness. Only draw back is of the past 10 flights I've taken, all were delayed by over an hour. Try to bypass making connections if possible for this reason. They to serve the best cities and airports and I choose them if at all possible. They're 24/7 hotline helps out too for last minute cute questions, even at 2 in the morning. Their fleet has a great aviation safety record (that's my field) and I am impressed since they came to Hartford.

I usually use JetBlue when I'm flying out of Long Beach and I love that they let me board from the front and back of the plane. Also, the seats for some reason just seem to have so much more space and the TVs on each seat, even for short flights, makes flying seem so much shorter. JetBlue's customer service is also pretty great. Everyone always treats me with incredible kindness. The cancellation policy was frustrating once when I had a connecting flight with another airline that was late. They weren't super willing to be flexible, but their employees always stayed kind even when I got frustrated with them.

Everyone we encountered at the desk or on the plane was very kind and approachable. When the stewardess found out it was our honeymoon, she didn’t charge us for our drink AND brought us a bottle of champagne to celebrate! I’m 5’11 and was very happy with the leg room! The tv/movie selection was a nice distraction for me, I’m always nervous about flying. I will definitely fly JetBlue again!

From making reservations, to the gate agents and in-flight staff, we have never, ever, EVER had a bad experience with Jet Blue. In fact, they consistently go above and beyond our expectations. They are my family's exclusive airline, one we enjoy so much that we would be willing to pay premium prices for, although it has never been necessary because their pricing is so competitive.

I was on flight #163 JFK to SRQ. A passenger was having a medical emergency. The flight crew responded immediately and provide oxygen and paged the plane to see if a medical professional was on board. A Registered Nurse responded and attended to the passenger with the attentive assistance of the flight crew. The passenger regained consciousness and was attended to throughout the flight. They also completed all the in cabin service as well. A job well done!

Expedia had messed up our Jet Blue Reservation dates. They refused to help me despite them admitting their own error, because it had been more than 24 hours later that I noticed. I called Jet Blue. Not only did they wave their fees for changing our flight. they also upgraded our seats for free, due to my back surgery I was having, and my reason for flying. I will forever be grateful for their amazing customer service!

I really like to fly JetBlue when possible. They have very comfortable airplanes. They offer a good variety of snacks. I thinks it's the only airline that I've flown domestically that still offers free good snacks. Some airlines I've been on recently only give peanuts or pretzels and others only give drinks. JetBlue tends to be a more expensive so I don't fly them often. But it's worth a look because if the price is right I would choose them.

I fly Jetblue every chance I get. They have the nicest, newest planes in the sky. I really like the individual screens and they also provide better snacks. I always receive friendly service, and always enjoy my flight experience. They can be pricier than other airlines, which is why I do not always use them.

I am so glad that Jet Blue finally goes to Daytona Beach Fl !!!!!! That hour plus drive to Orlando is over. Jet Blue has always been ready to assist a physically challenged person's needs. Everything where Jet Blue employees were responsible, are good. One time my bag was ripped almost in third was somewhat reimbursed. That was disappointing. I believe they gave me only $50. But that placed aside, Jet Blue will be the only airline for both me and my family.

I don't like this new thing about having to pay for the 1st checked bag. JetBlue has spoiled me because I'm used to getting a free 1st checked bag. Guess it was to good to last. I don't understand the change in fee since fuel prices are actually decreasing. I must admit JetBlue is my favorite airline with their low fares compared to other airlines. I enjoy the tasty snacks during flight and the staff are always kind and friendly. I had an issue during my last flight and once I contacted JetBlue on facebook, they apologized immediately and upgraded my seat on my return flight.

Love Jetblue! They were my preferred carrier until my last trip, from Las Vegas. Found out that after paying $80 per trip/per person for the Extra Leg Room, that I was travelling with two dogs. One in the seat in front of me and one two rows up. I am allergic to dogs. Walked off the flight with a stuffed nose and a severe headache. I don't want to see animals mistreated or dead, but I shouldn't have to ride in the seat next to them. Jetblue said they always allow small (under 10 lbs) pet, max 4 per flight. However, they don't advise anyone ahead of time. If I had severe allergies, I would have suffered even more, with perhaps being close to death. No longer a fan of Jetblue!

Overall I have very good experiences when I fly JetBlue. Occasionally our flights have been delayed and in one instance the Satellite television did not work at my seat (although I'm more concerned with keeping my children occupied). In every instance JetBlue customer service was proactive and contacted me, letting me know that they regretted the delay or that the tv was out of order and gave me a flight credit of various dollar amounts. They treat my children well, are friendly and courteous, and they always try to accommodate us if we have any needs. This has become the only airline I will fly (providing my destination is in their network). The Best Airline Out There, Hands Down, is JetBlue. #LOYALCUSTOMER
