Flight Review

Mar 21, 2020

My first time flying spirit I was a great experience smooth fly comfy seats overall was a great experience “I’ll be back”

Mar 16, 2020

Great flight on a nearly empty plane. Thank you. Corona Virus. You make air travel fun!

Mar 15, 2020

I bought an "extra space" seat, but it was the kind that have metal sides instead of arm-rests, which wind up pressing into my injured hip and making it worse. A nice person switched with me, but it was disappointing to pay MORE for a seat that was uncomfortable and that I ultimately couldn't use.

Mar 14, 2020

I just love JetBlue everyone is so nice everything goes smoothly it’s very clean. Thank you!

Mar 14, 2020

Good experience, but pretty ordinary.

Mar 12, 2020

This was a trip I bought for my 76 year old mother. She raced over the service. Especially the. Woman who helped her at the check in counter

Mar 12, 2020

My husband needed wheel chair and they were very helpful getting him through the airport.

Mar 11, 2020

What I didn't like was at check in in Montreal,agent was very unhelpful with my 1.8 pounds over the weight limit....

Mar 11, 2020

more seat choice on basic economy flights. If a window seat or isle seat is available on an unfilled flight, make that choice available instead of locking into middle seat.

Mar 10, 2020

arrived early

Mar 10, 2020

It was on time and pretty smooth, no leg room and I’m only 5’2”! Cookies and pretzels. Ok service, not overly friendly or helpful particularly with finding room for carry on baggage. But they got me where I needed to be.

It was no frills but very pleasant.

How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Princeton

If you like the thought of spending more time at the airport bar and less time navigating your way through security on your way to Princeton, follow these helpful tips:

  • Have your passport and boarding pass in an easily accessible place. They'll be the first things you'll be asked for by airport security personnel.
  • You'll have to pause the music for a short while. Headphones need to be taken off and placed in a tray to be X-rayed. The same applies to items such as keys and coins.
  • Make sure your laptop and electronic devices are easily accessible. These items need to be sent through the X-ray machine in separate tubs.
  • Flying with a favorite perfume? As long as it's no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it's placed in a clear zip-lock bag, you can keep it with you in your hand luggage.
  • Loosen your shoelaces before entering the body scanner. Depending on the style of shoes you've got on, security may ask you to take them off.
  • Some places have strict biosecurity laws. Consider where you're off to and whether or not you're allowed to travel with fresh fruit.
