New jet. Lots of leg room. On time departure. Early arrival. Reasonable airfare. Excellent online experience.
I liked the welcoming nature of the crew
I had checked in online the day before but was instructed to collect our boarding passes when we arrived. I am not completely comfortable using the automated Kiosks and always enjoy the nostalgia of speaking with someone when checking in for a flight. Upon doing so however, we were immediately asked,"did you check in online already?" To which I replied, "yes, but we were asked to retrieve our boarding passes upon arrival." She then said, "that's what those machines over there are for. We really encourage people to use those." That unfortunately sparked a series of shortness and overall poor behavior in my opinion from the woman who checked us in. I understand it was early in the morning but I am always excited to experience flying and that interaction has unfortunately left a bitter taste in my mouth to the point I will forever now hesitate to book with Porter again. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Cheers, JD
Everything was fantastic, by far the best airline experience in Canada 🇨🇦!
Porter uses the intelligent and logical way of boarding a plane - from the back.
Unlike our porter connection this was great , smooth 2minutes at check in not 90 mins Food wasn’t great but it’s plane food , staff were great
Nothing , two weeks of dealing with booking glitches on porters side , as our main international carrier was fine ,we were assured. When we got to check in everything would be smooth , we were confirmed there would be no issues, guess what happened? After an hour and a half at check inn we were told there was technical glitch involving payment we may not be able to fly , which would have set off a catastrophic chain , the undue stress on my family was unbearable .
They really communicated well advised well in advance of a delay. Contacted to tell me it was almost time to go and to do a check in.
I can't praise the crew enough on how fantastic they where West Jet could learn alot from Porter about customer satisfaction
Airline damaged my luggage
Porter, like most airlines, need to improve their baggage policies. In reality, there are no longer 'cheap flights' because passengers pay exorbitant baggage fees.
Porter is what Westjet used to be. Staff were great
Nothing to like about porter. Flight cancelled. No flight back to Boston for 2 days. No hotel accommodation. Terrible. Never again by porter.
THEY CANCELLED OUR FLIGHT. We want a refund!
travelling in 14th of April and now we are in 17th , I have not received my lost/delayed bag... this is very bad and the worst part is their call center is not able to see where is it!!!!
Everything for me was perfect
Porter is the airline that does care. All trips with Porter have been smooth and relaxing. The extras are the customer appreciation. The others just don’t do that.
The flight was delayed for more than 2 hrs. The plane was changed and staff couldn’t count people so we had to wait even longer while waiting for take off.
Friendly, courteous and professional staff. Clean planes.
Communication at the gate was adequate. Boarding was orderly. Seats are decent, with a reasonable amount of leg room. Flight was only 1.5 hours, so only a modest snack service (short bread cookie or small bag of chips) and a drink (coffee, tea, soda, cup of beer or wine). Exiting the plane was also orderly. Overall the flight was fine and the price reasonable.
Flight was supposed to be at 3 didn’t fly out until 6:30
Pros: Nice lounge. Fast boarding & disembarkment
Cons: There is a Covid-19 outbreak and this airline refused to change my flight. They are a disgrace.
Pros: Originally: a low fare
Cons: Flight oversold, travelers bumped. Flight delayed while they kicked people off the flight.
Pros: Cheap fares but may not be worth it
Cons: Flight delayed and oversold. Was told I might be bumped because mine was the lowest fare type. Wouldn’t fly Porter again if that is how they run their airline.
Pros: Great value. Free beverages including a small selection of beer, wine and whiskey. Otherwise no frills, no with, no entertainment. Short haul flights, no problem. Best bargain airline
Cons: There is a fee to change your assigned seat US$10-20(?), regardless of whether it's a "better" seat. Fortunately, this trip our seats (family of three) were near where we wanted to be. But, it would have been disappointing to have to pay for each seat change for each leg, each way.
Pros: The crew is always friendly at Porter. The free wine is awesome.
Cons: There’s no entertainment.
Pros: The seat was comfortable
Cons: I could not get was the flight was delayed.
