What makes an airline your first choice — the amazing service? Affordable tickets? The flights available? To help get you on your way, we've made a list of the four top carriers that have flights between San Francisco and New York. Work out which one suits your plans:
We had exit row which was nice and roomy
Plane was packed but it couldn't be helped. We were a little late to gate and I almost missed connection. Overall good. I like Delta.
I could have used WiFi on my phone. Maybe I'm not tech savvy enough to set it up, but it wasn't clear if it was free or how to log on.
Seats were too narrow and cramped
Captain talked way too much
On time flight
Wish they had fed us more than some chips for a 5 hour flight.
They didn’t offer snacks or foods on board.
Delayed flight due to lack of plane maintenance
Old plane, too much waiting...utter disorganization.
Extremely unhappy with the delays on this flight, no apology and being made to wait thru the night was very frustrating. Misinformation on flight given, departure time changed to 10:20pm and stated flight “on time”. In the end we didnt leave until 11:20pm vs 8:57pm and arrived three hours late which defeated the purpose of a red eye to get to work on time. We landed at 8am instead of 5:06am. Also we were made to check in our carry on at the plane, and then when we got on the plane there was plenty of overhead cabin space, delaying our departure another 15 minutes. While on the plane while delayed, I verified it was ok to use the restroom and was told “she’s a grown woman she can use the restroom” which was so unnecessary and extremely rude as we were supposed to depart and we wanted to respect the seatbelt lights were on. Upon arrival once again, delays in retrieving luggage as well. Very unsatisfactory experience. I would like a refund credit. Jet blue has really declined in service.
Lying, no accommodations and blaming cancelled flight on weather and not mechanical issues. No timely fix-it plans and 4 plus hours of standing in line for unhelpful customer service. NIGHTMARE!
THEY MIGHT HAVE GOTTEN BETTER RATINGS IF THEY DIDN'T CANCEL MY FLIGHT AND TRY TO STICK ME ON AN ALTERNATE LEAVING A DAY LATER FROM AN AIRPORT 60 MILES AWAY AND GOING TO AN AIRPORT 60 MILES FROM MY ORIGINAL DESTINATION. LUCKY DELTA WAS THERE TO FIX IT...
