Everything was great. Will say, staff On this particular flight didn’t seem happy doing what they do. Even the gal that swiped your ticket when boarding plane. Not the norm with Jet Blue but again, all was fine really.

No, just keep up the good job.

You get what you pay for, but we got there early

The amenities were fine. But our return trip back had Delta and the screens, choices to watch, audio, power were better. Jetblue seems to make the trip so easy though.

Sep 29, 2018

It was a basic flight. Anytime you land and takeoff safely it’s a GOOD flight! 😊
