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.

Cons: "Poor customer service."
Pros: "Flight in was fine."
Cons: "I will avoid Porter from now on. There was a small storm earlier in the day in Boston which pushed back all Porter flights. The flight from Boston to Ottawa was delayed 5-6 times, at one point they were planning to re-route us to Hamilton and put us on a bus to Toronto...! Since the Porter planes are so small they are the first to get bumped. They kept us waiting for 7 hours at the airport rescheduling and delaying our flight until it was finally cancelled. They gave us a $15 meal voucher.. that's it! No offer of accomodations or any assistance whatsoever. I was rebooked for 2 days later!! This is the second time I have had this exact scenario with Porter.. so it is not a chance happening."
Pros: "The convenience at YTZ airport."
Cons: "The lack of personnel at the Porter counters at Dulles. Even though I had paid for luggage online and checked in I still had to wait in line for a very long time. There should be a separate line for pre check ins and no carry on."
Pros: "Ground and air crew were very friendly and attentive to every passenger's needs."
Cons: "Pilot's landing was very rough and sloppy. It almost felt like a rushed landing (and I would believe it since it was landing at YTZ, a smaller airport.)"
Pros: "The service once boarded was great. The flight attendants did a good job serving drinks and handing out snacks"
Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave at 5:30pm, but we only left at 7:10pm. We were not told why our flight and the one prior left late. Luckily we did not have a connecting flight like some of the other passengers."
Pros: "Legroom and snacks were good."
Cons: "Super late and no information as to when it was rescheduled or why. Crew was not helpful and snappy about mundance things like headphones in on descent?!"
Pros: "Entertainment is realism N/A. Overall good value. Too bad about Newark and not NY"
Pros: "Free snacks"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice and they didn’t tell us until 5 minutes after we had to leave. Also, I received the email that my flight was delayed from porter until 30 minutes after they announced it at the airport."
Pros: "Why would you go any other way? Dependable service, complimentary in-flight wine, the world's best shortbread cookies, breeze through customs and the arrival gate is within walking distance of your hotel."
Cons: "Are you kidding?"
Pros: "Complimentary refreshment during layover."
Cons: "Flight delayed without informing the estimated time of delay. Confusing boarding time and gate number."
Pros: "It was my first time flying and the staff was so accommodating and helpful!"
Pros: "Got a seat up front didn't have to walk much. after forgetting to pre-boarding they did a good job of getting me on board."

Pros: "Onboard crew was very nice"
Cons: "Crew didn't answer any of my questions, were snappy, and rude."
Cons: "Flight left without us despite being a connecting flight and the customer service rep was rude and useless. Future flights were cancelled or severely delayed. Had to cancel that flight and use Air Canada to get to Montreal"
Cons: "They double booked our seats. Another woman was asked to leave on an over sold flight. The flight attendants (not all) were rude and curt. While I understand that they have had long days but their job is customer service. We were talked down to multiple times."
Cons: "Major delays. Flight hot. Crew very nice."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful. Flight went very smoothly with no hassle. Have flown with many airlines and porter is definitely one of the best I've seen for a long time."
Pros: "free beer"
Cons: "flights were late"
Pros: "Liked the fact that I flew out of Toronto Islands airport, was fast and easy with complimentary snacks while waiting at the gate. I had an early morning flight and so beat the traffic, as I'm sure that picks up later in the day. Online checkin was easy and simple. I did not have any check-in luggage, only carry-on, suspect that also made it easier. The Porter airlines support call center was very helpful and friendly There were complimentary coffee and snacks at the gate... was a really nice feeling. Liked the waiting area at the gates, comfortable seating. Plane was on time. No issues"
Cons: "I had an early morning flight, so traffic was very light, but suspect that later in the day. So taking a later flight on Porter may be problematic as getting to the airport would be more difficult. The language in the email ticket confirmation made me a little concerned, as it mentioned having to re-confirm the booking and being at the airport at least 3 hours ahead even though the flight time was only 1:05 hours etc. But after calling in to the support center, the concerns were cleared up."
Pros: "All the complimentary food and drinks, really nice staff and comfy and elegant seatings."
Cons: "I do not fault the crew at all for the weather or the delays. However, the airline desk was understaffed and did a horrible job of keeping passengers updated with news regarding their flights. I feel bad for the two staffers manning the desk because they had to deal with a deluge of angry people needing alternative flights because of all the cancellations."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, Very comfortable flight and warm welcoming crew"
Pros: "I was allowed to go on an earlier flight which enabled me to go out to dinner with my husband for his birthday."
Cons: "I didn't like the pressurization of the cabin. I find that I have a hard time with my ears pressurizing on Porter flights. I flew earlier in the day with no problem with my ears then I take the Porterr flight and my ears won't clear at all. I feel this type of aircraft doesn't pressurize well."
Pros: "There were mechanical delays, so Porter gave an $8 voucher to spend in the airport, which was a nice touch since I had never received that from other airlines who also had mechanical delays. Porter was pretty smooth despite delays due to weather on the way back. Attendants were generous with the food servings. I love that this airline serves free wine."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "Great service, crew was very helpful in rescheduling flight for next day."
Cons: "It was unclear whether the bad weather affected other airlines, and missed flights suck even if it's nobody's fault..."
Pros: "It was good not to much waiting time"
Pros: "Easy flight out of Bully Bishop. Love the terminal service in Toronto. Free espresso, drinks, and snacks! On flight service in wonderful! Nice attendants, free wine, cozy chairs."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "I especially love Porter's lounges - free coffee, cappuccino, espresso, cookies, soda, water, free Wi-Fi,.. I checked in unintentionally early, and was asked if I wanted to be put on an earlier flight, at no charge - any other airline that's offered me that in the last few years has always imposed a surcharge. Flight was on time, crew was friendly."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "Overall it was a pleasant flight, satisfied"

Pros: "Flight was on time and the staff and crew were courteous."

Cons: "No free drinks"
Pros: "Crew are very nice and approachable. No complain about their service. And flight is on time."
Cons: "Getting charged Air Canada rates for Air Canada Rouge comforts. 9 plus hours with zero entertainment. Basically stealing money. If this is the service offered should be at cheapo airlines price."
Cons: "Poor Customer service! My baggage arrived later on the same day I had arrived..., but I didnlt get it till 2 days later. There were or apology or announcement about the reason of my flight delay (2 hrs). I was told by a customer rep on the phone a few days before ny flight that I didn't need eTA to transit, but I needed it! I had to obtain it at the airport counter on the day of my flight.. I was very close to miss my flight.... Due to the delay, many customers missed connection flights, but there was no clear guidance to where to take care of the matter... I was ery disappointed.."
Pros: "My group of five arrived to the airport late (one hour before the flight took off), but the crew worked together to quickly process all of us and get us through to ensure that we didn't miss our flight. We really appreciated it!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for several hours, while the crew assured us it was on the way. When it landed they still said it was being prepped. Then at 10pm or so, they said it was cancelled. Then we waited another hour and a half to speak to representatives and get our hotels. Then another hour to the hotel to go to sleep. Because I had to be back at the airport in 7 hours to catch the next flight. It would have taken me 2 hours to drive to Seattle from Vancouver."
Pros: "Not much to compliment on. The flight did offer a great selection of movies to choose from during the trip."
Cons: "Constant flight delays. We were left on the runway for two hours before taking off due to an issue with the laboratory. The plane was overpacked, not allowing much personal space even in the aisle seat. People were sleeping on the floor and some in the aisles, creating a tripping hazard to those wanting to stand and stretch or walk to the restrooms. Those who attempted to sleep in their seat found that the seats were very uncomfortable and had very little to no leg room. When it came time to land at our destination, we ended up having to circle the airport for an additional 35 mins waiting for the terminal to free up. It was a very long 10hr flight that even the nice selection of movies to choose from couldn't help. Terrible flight experience, Canadian Air has really gone down hill."
Cons: "the flight was 5 hours late"
Pros: "Nice service by flight attendants"
Cons: "Late departure due to mechanical issues."

Cons: "The crew member on ground were very rude."

Cons: "The inflight entertainment needs more updated options ."
Pros: "Great service, on-time flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "My partner had injured his knee and it was quite swollen. When we phoned and also went to an AC agent at the airport, we were told there was nothing they could really do as far as leg room; Heathrow reps were kind enough to offer a wheelchair when we arrived. The frustrating part was when we were on the flight, there were multiple rows which only had 1 person seated. There did not seem to be any empathy, understanding or patience for our situation and it did not feel great to be treated with annoyance and disdain."
Pros: "There were some pretty recent movies and some older ones that I remember watching when I was younger. Both options were good."
Cons: "Despite there being both new and older movies, there seemed to be a limited number of movies and shows. I feel like there could have been more, but it might be just me."
Pros: "Prem. Economy class is pretty decent, love it!"
Pros: "Seats were pretty wide and comfy."

Cons: "Can I give zero star?"
