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.
Cons: "Small plane. Limited space for roll ones."
Pros: "Bunch of crooks gave me the wrong time. Missed my flight"
Cons: "Getting correct to information"
Pros: "Cheap price of the airline ticket."
Cons: "I was booked where someone was already sitting. It was difficult because I was with my two young children. And someone else was booked in my child's seat also."
Cons: "I booked this flight on Kayak. No mention at booking that this airlines has a ludicrous policy of charging $50 for a carry on bag!....wow!...last flight ever on Porter."
Pros: "Quick fligh."
Cons: "Having a terminal to check in would have been nice, I had no luggage to check and still had to wait 30mins in line."
Pros: "Crew was awesome."
Cons: "My seat was a bit grubby...food remnants on the seat"
Pros: "On registration, the agent request as to pay for a handbag! It’s only on Porter that I have to pay for it."
Pros: "I was surprised by the quality of the snacks and service."
Cons: "When sitting next to the window, your leg is usually forced up against the lower part of the concave wall within the plane."
Pros: "Thank you for offering almonds as a healthy snack."
Cons: "Was not offered a flight back to Ottawa, had to find a ride from Toronto to Ottawa once we landed .6 hours driving. See above."
Pros: "When flying Porter, not only do you receive leather seating"
Cons: "The passenger beside me was flatulating during the entire flight. It smelled of old meats and gruyère cheese"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was WONDERFUL! I wish I knew her name. She was the only one with glasses. This was the ~3:15pm flight Nov 25 from Montreal to Toronto. She was very pleasant and attentive, and truly loved her job but not over the top. My friend and I were super impressed by the service of everyone but especially her. The snacks were also a very nice touch. Great prices and deals on flights"
Pros: "Cheaper cost Nice staff"
Cons: "Discomfort Small plane"
Pros: "Flight delayed. But reason was understandable"
Pros: "Landing at Billy Bishop is very convenient."
Cons: "20 minutes delay on the incoming first flight, 35 minutes on the out coming flight. Our organization sent 100 persons to an event in Toronto this weekend. Some colleagues that had a 2 pm flight were told that they would leave by the 10 pm flight. Our flight eas already delayed, the door had been already closed, but it was reopened so that a passenger, who had arrived last, could go back to the lounge to pickup some fhat he had forgotten. Porter has become a very unreliable company. Like some of my colleagues, I will now consider flying out of Pearson airport sadly."
Pros: "Snacks and pleasant mannerism of the stewardess"
Pros: "1) Snacks and beverage at Toronto airport 2) Very clean and comfortable inside the aircraft"
Cons: "1) I wasn’t allowed to check in online because I’m not an American or Canadian citizen. Never heard of that before on any other airline. 2) Flight delays too often and the notification is sent just an hour before (by then we’ve already checked in!)"
Pros: "My flight was delayed due to bad weather but they offered complimentary drink service at the airport and I really appreciated it. I would like to fly with Porter Airlines again."
Pros: "They have much better in flight service"
Cons: "Every flight I saw by porter was delayed including mine."
Pros: "Awesome crew and in flight communication and beverages"
Cons: "No WiFi"
Pros: "The gate agent blocked the seat next to me aonI had the whole row to myself. Porter is the best way to get to Toronto from the Philadelphia and NY area"
Cons: "The flight attendant nearly took my hand off when offering the snacks. Usually the insist Intake more."
Pros: "The check in process was very easy. The boarding process was very easy. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "There was not anything to complain about."
Pros: "Flight was efficient, smooth and relaxing. Best flight I’ve had in a long time. Only thing was we waited on arrival for the ground crew to taxi us to the gate, and to bring out our luggage."
Cons: "Wait time on arrival for ground crew at billy bishop... taxi to Tate was at least a 20 minute wait. Also waiting for luggage was another 20 minute wait."
Pros: "Great service. Efficient."
Cons: "Damaged my fragile marked checked item. Would not compensate for the damage."
Cons: "Everything else was good"
Cons: "I mistakenly bought a ticket on the wrong date. I tried to change it but with their $200 change policy, it was cheaper to buy a new one. Regretfully, I bought it with Porter again, only because it was the cheapest available and I was already out a lot of money. It had to be a later flight, and people were waiting for me in Ottawa for a wedding party. The flight seemed like it was on time, but instead of getting us there, they made us sit on the plane for 45 minutes to wait for other passengers coming from another flight. I would consider a few minutes nice and the right thing to do, but not 45, as this was a complete disregard for the rest of us. They said it was the last flight to Halifax. Great, that lets me know they just didn't want to put them up in a hotel. They have ridiculously high fees, but they won't deliver the service promised in a timely manner to save themselves money. Seems like they are pinching pennies at the cost of quality service."
Pros: "Reliable, comfortable, punctual. Great service."
Cons: "Our flight to Chicago was cancelled, we didn't get so much as an email letting us know (checked the flight status at 1am for a 8am flight and it said on time) we found out at the porter counter at the airport that or flight was cancelled and we were delayed until the next day!!! Next day we realize they didn't schedule us on the first OR second flight of the day but the third so we were delayed by 36 hours instead of 24!!!! The planes are tiny, very old, quite dirty. The staff seem totally non chalant about all these cancelled flights and allllll of the delays and repeatedly say that the airline is understaffed... hello i don't care why my vacation was cut short by 36 hours and i got stuck paying 200$ for a hotel room tat i didn't get to stay in!!! Get your act together Porter!!!!"
Pros: "Loved service and lounges. Would absolutely fly Porter again. Lots of legroom."
Cons: "You have to be aware that these are props, so flights do get delayed or cancelled due to weather. Both of our flights were delayed. But they were very up front about it. Also put us on earlier flights automatically which was nice."

Pros: "The flught was great. Very impressed by real glass glasses. The flight attendants were wonderful"
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "One of the hostesses from Toronto to Halifax was one of the sweetest and caring people. She was the younger of the two women (for lack of her name) and I wish I had taken her name to be able to let Porter know how nice she was! She really made the whole trip so pleasant."

Cons: "Screaming baby and I couldn't wear my noise cancelling headphones"
Pros: "Free cookies"
Cons: "The flight crew seemed like they all hated their jobs"
Cons: "I did not like that my flight was canceled, and then delayed a few times. I did not like leaving my original plane only to wait in a hallway with everyone else for almost twenty minutes to finally be allowed to go to customs."
Pros: "Service. Location of both Toronto Island and Chicago Midway are closer to downtown than the bigger airports in each city."
Cons: "Porter was a nice, small, well-kept secret. Now they have expanded quite a bit and the lounge is always full, to the extent that people are sitting all over the ground. Flights are almost always late to take-off. I guess all good things must come to an end."
Pros: "Consistent experience that gets you from A to B while providing nice perks (free stame-day standby on the old Rapidair routes)."

The flight attendant on that flight was so pleasant and accommodating, I'm almost happy to have missed the original flight! Two huge thumbs up for Air Canada - you made my day!"
Pros: "Didn't actually take this flight due to a missed connection."
Pros: "I'll like it when i board."
Cons: "The fact i haven't boarded yet."
Pros: "Pretty routine"
Cons: "Long delay, but weather dictated this."
Cons: "Seats are always too close to the ones in front , crushing knees."
Pros: "Air Canada you suck. Told us that our flight wouldn't leave before we boarded as the computer system was down country wide. We still stood in like for an hour and hey could have manually checked us in as they did others. We were promised no planes would leave and when we got to the gate our plane was pulling away leaving 10 of us to scramble to find another flight. Customer service argued with me saying no flights were going to Ottawa and my Kayak app told me otherwise. Thanks for making my flight home for a funeral that much more stressful and having my family wait 4 hours risking all of our lives with freezing rain drive home."

Cons: "Crew provided a card to contact air Canada for compensation"
Pros: "Seat availability (lots of empty seats) Entertainment system had lots of movies & music Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight attendants could be more aware of his/her surroundings. For example, I was either stepped on (as a result, being woken up) or my backpack was stepped on several times when an attendant was walking down the aisle, and neither of those things were sticking out into the aisle. This has rarely happened to me on trans-Pacific flights (more crowded, longer flights) so I can only attribute it to the carelessness of the attendants and/or the aisle width but since I think aisle width follows international standards it's more likely the former."
Pros: "Not refunds, no voucher, no credits .... But still s stupid fee of U.S 200 to pay on my Next flight using same booking Code . RIDICULOUS !! Guess other airlines want my business and my friends' too.."
Cons: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."

Pros: "Great service on a quick flight"
