I just flew JetBlue across the US, and I never want to fly on another airline

I have a United Airlines credit card, so I try to fly United whenever I can.

But on a recent trip from New York City to Las Vegas, all of my friends were flying JetBlue and I decided to join them.

I’m glad I did.

From the legroom to the snacks, to the hot towels that were passed out just before landing, I felt like I was being treated like a first class customer at a coach price.

Let's start with the legroom. JetBlue claims that it has the most legroom in coach of any U.S. airline at 32-33 inches.

So much space!

And the amount of legroom was the first thing I noticed when I sat down. I was even able to comfortably cross my legs.

I didn't have to struggle to cross my legs.

Up next: Free wifi. At first I thought I had to be a TrueBlue member to get online for free, but even guests don't pay to check Instagram throughout the flight.

Just agree to the conditions and sign in as a guest.

Something that might seem small, but was actually a huge perk: water. The flight attendants walked up and down the aisle almost the entire flight asking if you wanted more. I feel like I always get dehydrated on flights, and after this one, I felt great.

The unlimited water on JetBlue kept me hydrated.

In addition to the water there were unlimited snacks, which is important on a 5+ hour flight! You could pick from their signature Terra Blue chips, pretzels, cookies, and more.

I ate my snack too quickly to take a photo.

To pass the time while I drank water and ate snacks, I watched JetBlue's free in-flight entertainment. I could even watch my guilty pleasure, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on Food Network.

There were also several fairly new movies I could have watched. They change up the movies each month for flights over two hours.

Just before we started our descent, a flight attendant was walking down the aisle again. I figured she was just collecting trash, but as she got closer I realised she was passing around hot towelettes!

The hot towelette was refreshing.

My return flight was a red eye and I was exhausted. I was pleasantly surprised to see this 'snooze kit' on my seat when I sat down.

A snooze kit for my overnight flight.

Inside was an eye mask and ear plugs, something I didn't even get on my United flight to Portugal earlier this summer. I slept the whole flight, and felt refreshed when I landed in NYC.

I wore the eye mask and it helped me sleep the whole flight

Overall, my JetBlue experience was very enjoyable, something I can't say about a lot of other flights I've taken. If JetBlue ever expands to start to fly to more destinations, I'll definitely make the switch and ditch my United card.

Right now, JetBlue mostly has destinations in the U.S., Caribbean, Mexico, and some in South America.
