Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We always fly this carrier and upgrade to the extended seating. we have been traveling with them since they began flying. I can say the flight has always been good,communication outstanding and the planes are always clean.

There are only two carriers offering nonstop flights from Fort Lauderdale to Las Vegas and back... and we’ve been on both several times. We go several times a year.

Initially the only nonstop was “Big Yellow”. It was a cattle car. We even upgraded for $100/seat each way to sit in a wider seat at the front of the plane. Still a cattle car, but at least we didn’t have to sit in the tighter and narrower seats.

The thing is, flying in and out of Lauderdale is much better than Miami... and with only one nonstop, we accepted the crappy flight to avoid having to connect and experience at least three hours more of travel time.

JetBlue started direct flights a couple of years ago and we booked them in economy class. What a difference!

The JetBlue seats are much more comfortable. TV at each seat... FlyFi lets you go on line free... free drinks and snacks and a crew that relates to the passengers. Not the case at “Big Yellow”.

The JetBlue flight takes off about an hour earlier. It arrives at terminal 3 in Vegas which is newer, cleaner and just feels better than the older terminal assigned to Big Yellow.

The return nonstop flight leaves Vegas about an hour earlier which is fine. Terminal 3 again, cleaner, less distance from bag drop off to the gate. Easier security.

We book for four nights so after we check out of our hotel we check our bags with the concierge... then gamble and have dinner... getting a full day before taking the red eye back. We get to sleep on the flight back... and the price of a round trip ticket on JetBlue (with 1 free carry on per person and 1 checked bag for the two of us), is just about the same as Big Yellow.

Take my advice... drop Big Yellow and go with JetBlue... it’s so much better.

Best flight Ive ever been on. Service wasnt over the top. The amount of room we had in our seats was exceptional. They gave out snacks and drinks during our flight. They had amazing in air entertainment. Great all around!

We flew mint, which is only offrered on Jetblue’s Cross country flights. Such a great experience. Super comfortable seats. Premier service - meals, drinks, whatever you want. The seats recline to beds. A better value than Alaska first class!

My first time on JetBlue I was a little uneasy to try an "economy" airline, if that is the proper term or category. I was pleasantly surprised. I normally purchase extra legroom in other top tier airlines but did not on JetBlue. Was very pleasantly surprised with more than enough legroom and a very comfortable seat. The airplane, the service, drinks and snacks were all great. It was a great experience and the first of many flights on JetBlue to come.
