Overall good experience with just the JetBlue Qatar should have kept the checked in luggage at the Boston Airport while rebooking the missed connection to MSP. That made it extra hard on passengers to carry their luggage to hotel and back and check-in again.

This flight the air was on, for a change, and we were comfortable. It was not full and the staff got us water, when needed. Bathroom cleanliness is an issue. Maybe more visual signs in the bathroom will help passengers who can’t read keep it clean? Also no toilet seat covers.
