    Terminal 3 @ FLL disgraceful.

    JB is located at terminal 3

    I was incredibly unimpressed by this airport on both ends..departure to aruba and arriving from aruba.

    I cannot speak for the whole airport, but I can say that terminal 3 was congested, poorly air-conditioned, dirty, rest rooms unacceptably filthy, many non working electric outlets in the areas set aside for electronic devices like laptops, phone charging etc and insufficient number of chairs at the gates. All in all it really was terrible.

    JB has a huge presence in FLL.
    Why do they not spiff this place up?

    Andrea I am with you...I flew through FLL airport and was shocked at the lack of seating and overall "feeling" of the airport...its another reason for me NOT to connect, lol.

    I’ve never gotten a seat in FLL when connecting on JB. Always end up sitting on the floor or standing uncomfortably to use an outlet.

    that was one of my many observations.
    insufficient seats, insufficient everything.
    JB ought to be ashamed to use this terminal.
    when we arrived in FLL on Tuesday evening, i saw an elderly couple, sitting on the floor in FLL.
    there is no reason for this.

    Curios to know if you contacted Jet Blue? I wonder if there is a planned upgrade? Sometimes a social media post pointing out short comings can go a long way, and sometimes it means nothing. Wish I had known this prior to booking our November flights on Jet Blue. Not looking forward to that layover.

    Tracey. We used Jet Blue in FLL last fall with no problems at all. Yes, the gate areas are small, but it worked out fine. It could certainly use some upgrades, but I'll take it over Miami any day.
