If you’re looking to get comfortable on your next flight, knowing how much legroom the airline offers and what types of amenities and entertainment you can expect makes all the difference.

Those are the factors that personal finance site WalletHub used to determine which U.S. airline provides the most comfortable experience for travelers across the nine largest U.S. airlines as well as two regional carriers.

JetBlue was given the distinction of having the most comfortable in-flight experience, scoring high marks across each of the categories in the report.

WalletHub looked at which airlines provide at least 30 inches of seat pitch in economy, if they provide some type of entertainment, if they have amenities like free Wi-Fi, and if they offer a selection of complimentary food and drinks. JetBlue scored perfectly on each category.

JetBlue previously took the top spot for the most comfortable airline in WalletHub's 2016 study.
