Cons: "The crew could have checked us in...we were 5 minutes late for checkin and had to book and pay for another flight."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly and amazing"
Cons: "After boarding had to deplane and go on another aircraft."
Cons: "Like mentioned previously, long delays, followed by a snafu in the boarding process forcing a manual check in of all passengers. net outcome: 1.5h delay. First experience counts, in my case it was a mediocre one."

Pros: "Crew was awesome."
Cons: "My seat was a bit grubby...food remnants on the seat"
Pros: "The snacks were great and crew was friendly!"
Cons: "My seat was covered in crumbs, cleanliness overall could have been better."
Cons: "Buyer beware! When you buy this basic package, they charge $37 for your first bag and another $50 for your carry-on. I just paid $97 for one piece of luggage and a carry-on! This practically doubles the cost of the ticket. Not only false advertising, but highway robbery!"

Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "I appreciated how the staff took me in a wheet-chair all the way to the customs and waited with me while they checked me out. they were courteous, kind and genuine.Very refreshing in this day and age. God Bless all the staff at Porter Air Lines. thank you so very very much, Barbara Ann MacMahon-Firestone, Toronto,Ontario."
Cons: "3 houra delays and no storm!"
Pros: "Easy. Relaxed. Cheap. Great!"
Cons: "Damaged my fragile marked checked item. Would not compensate for the damage."
Cons: "Everything else was good"
Pros: "Lounge Snacks"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "it was the last connecting flight and it was cancelled."
Pros: "Good in flight service"
Cons: "Flights delayed both ways. Anything from an hour to five hours. Very inconvenient."
Pros: "- Staff/crew are exceedingly pleasant, although not necessarily 100% helpful - Free beer and great snack options onboard are a nice departure (see what I did there??) from the usual in-flight experience. - When they significantly messed up my entire first day of travel, without complaint they sent me a voucher for future travel."
Cons: "- My first flight was delayed and I wasn't notified until an hour beforehand (even though the flight was delayed due to an incoming flight they knew well ahead of an hour beforehand would not be there). I could have arrived at the airport later and paid less for my parking. - I was told by a gate agent I would still make my very tight connection (spoiler alert - I did not), so I did not ask to be rebooked on a later connection immediately. - Once it became clear I would likely miss my connection due to being delayed after boarding, I asked again about it, this time of a flight attendant. I was told there were 23 daily flights a day to my connecting city (there are not) and it would be fine. We sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes after landing waiting for a gate and the last hope of making that connection was gone. - Upon arrival in Toronto it turns out my connecting flight was cancelled and everyone had to be rebooked. The very pleasant customer service rep told me not to worry! They automatically rebook everyone and I've been scheduled to leave 10 flights later - the following morning. At 12:45 p.m. their best solution was a flight at 8:30 the next morning (later canceled). When I calmly explained that was not ideal, I was immediately given the "last seat out today" on a 9:30 flight (later delayed then canceled). I'm not sure who they were saving that for, but it is unacceptable to rebook people for the next day when they have free seats. I was resigned to spending 9 hours in the terminal (literally just a room with a few snacks) because I was also on standby for every flight until then, and fortunately after checking in again 5 hours later, I was handed a ticket for the flight leaving in 15 minutes. If I had followed Porter's original plan, I have no idea when I would have made it, as I already mentioned both of those other flights were later canceled and I've already gone over how Porter rebooks passengers. - I found out after I spent $20 Canadian on a sandwich and chips via the Porter website that they are supposed to give meal vouchers in a significant delay, but I was not offered one. - On the way back, I saw myself being set up for the same rigmarole. My first flight was delayed more than a half hour, leaving me with a very tight connection. Thankfully, I arrived at the airport earlier and was able to catch an earlier flight because as it turns out, the connecting flight I would have missed due to the delay ended up being canceled. I can only imagine what the rebooking process would have been, so I am glad Porter is accommodating about switching flights. I imagine they do so to save them the rebooking later, but still, it is not something all airlines will do. - Both flights out to Montreal were incredibly hot. I tend to run cold and I was sweating. The flights home on a warmer day were fine, so I'm not sure what was going on there."

Cons: "It wasn't so much Porter by Kayak. I had received a gate chance from 14 to 12 then 12 to 14 but never received the one to go back again from 14 to 12."
Pros: "The cordiallity and the service"
Pros: "Quick and easy."
Cons: "Cafe before security at Billy Bishop Airport doesn't open until 9am. The overhead compartment for seat was filled with Porter's supplied and I was forced to gate check my carry on."
Pros: "Didn't like it I don't"
Cons: "Waiting seven hours after being bumped because my flight was oversold. Watched a flight to Montreak leave every hour sibce I have been here. Finding out my name is not on the voucher list and gaving to fight for it to be checked out. Paying $9 for a glass of mediocre wine. All this for a flight that will probably be canceled, if my past exoerience with Porter is any indication. I missed my grandmother's fuberal this past summer because of Porter. I am DONE!!!"
Pros: "Travel was seamless Flights were surprisingly punctual Staff was friendly and planes are comfy for short flights - Lounge is the best ! definitely the highlight of flying porter. They stand behind their slogan... " Flying Refined ""

Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "I was originally booked (booked flight on Feb 1) with a half hour layover and then had a flight change ( mid June) to a 4 hr layover taking off in a different plane. When I got off in Halifax, new passengers boarded to go to Ottawa...? Why remove an Ottawa bound passenger so you can replace with a different Ottawa bound passenger? Not cool Porter...."
Pros: "Free wine I guess. They called security when they cancelled the flight. They knew everyone would be frustrated and annoyed. No refunds. No money for hotel. Terrible experience."
Cons: "You cancelled the flight saying it's because of weather but Air Canada was flying the same time with no problems. You should've let us know the last flight to montreal was cancelled long time ago."
Pros: "Very friendly in flight service Pilots made up time in flight Gate in Montreal was fairly close to curbside pick up"
Cons: "Pilots made up time in flight to catch up delayed departure. Great!! But, then had to wait on Tarmac for gate to be released by another aircraft."
Cons: "Checked bag too expensive p"
Pros: "Cabin crew was okay"
Cons: "I would’ve appreciated if the crew did not blame a very evident turn-around delay on weather. The TAF and METAR in Halifax do not support that. It looks more like the crew was trying to hide their incompetence. This delay prevented me from catching my connection in Calgary. Needless to say, Westjet refused to take their responsibilities."
Pros: "Crew were fairly attentive, have experienced better. Liked the Canadian entertainment options, even if very limited."
Cons: "Seats were okay, the plane is really showing it's age. Movie selection was very limited, and very dated."
Cons: "Need to use your own device for entertainment, no screens in flight."
Pros: "Great crew, very accommodating for a small and short flight"
Cons: "We never made it to our holiday destination. There were a handful of going to BDA from Pearson. Your inbound flight was late. Would it have killed you to hold it for 5 mins?"

Pros: "on time, quick boarding. NO LINES at TSA!!!!"
Pros: "On time! Roomy cabin space and leg room"
Pros: "Crew is always great."
Cons: "The Encore planes are the cramped, noisy and slower Q400. If you request a window seat expect the possibility that you won’t be able to comfortably place both feet on the floor. Added bonus, to balance the plane they sometimes need to request passengers to move from the front to the back which slows down departure times."
Cons: "Horrible trip. Never again"
Pros: "The stewardess serving drinks was very pleasant. Thank You"
Pros: "Easy boarding. The crew helped me with the car seat that was blocked with the seat belt. We got all our luggages in a short time and in good condition."

Being held in holding because it was being confirmed that my bag would make it on my next flight and then once confirmed it never made it anyways!!! Unprofessional and poorly executed all the way through."

Cons: "The people in front of us reclined their seats and there was no leg room. The flight was severely delayed by an hour and a half making us miss our connection."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly with this flight. It boarded on time. The crew were all very friendly. I enjoyed the entertainment selections and found a tv show that I had been wanting to see. I managed to watch 2 episodes and look forward to watching more of the same show on my flight back. I ended up having the 2 seats to myself which was great. Extra legroom. I have no complaints at all."

Cons: "When the flight was already late (it arrived late), they delayed takeoff so that many people, including me, missed their connections."

Pros: "Able to upgrade to 1st class"
Cons: "Customs what a cluster of confusion"
Cons: "Always delayed."
Pros: "Good selection of TV and film's"
Cons: "It was cancelled."
Cons: "Air Canada shares a trait with many other incompetent organizers: everything is fine if nothing goes wrong, but there are no contingency plans in place in case something goes wrong. So, things get more and more delayed. Can't you predict roughly when the plane is going to land (once it is in the air!) and arrange for some gate to be open, so that we don't have to sit on the ground for 45 minutes once it has landed, for example? People who know how to organize are ordinarily capable of doing that. Furthermore, the lack of transparency is really frustrating: we just sit on the tarmac with no indication of how long we're going to be there, and the estimates of the delays are completely wrong when we're given them."
Cons: "Splitting couples in different seats. The only way to seat together was to pay extra."
Pros: "The tv for each individual person"
Cons: "Always late."
Pros: "on time"

Pros: "Never flown "air canada", was a bit apprehensive. But I was very much happy & pleasantly surprised!"
Pros: "I got to Montreal"
Cons: "Long time till take off."
Cons: "Was a bit of a pain when I wanted to simply get off the plane in Geneva since it would be shorter, but then the plane was late, but that can't be helped"
Pros: "Worst service I've ever had"
Cons: "The flight for Montreal was half empty and than there was a flight to Toronto Hallf empty as well, and the flight Toronto to Montreal was half empty...by coincidence our flight Halifax-Montreal on Sunday at 19:15 was cancelled due to technical issues. However it was obvious that AirCanada didn't care about the passenger time or valued it...instead of flying 3 empty flights they cancelled our flight and maximize capacity on the other planes...not happy we didn't get any voucher and we wasted 4 hours of our time and didn't have dinner until 1 am"
Cons: "The seat I sat in felt lumpy. Its also always so loud in the smaller planes, but I knew that."
Cons: "I could not see anything because I didn't know that I had to install the app on my laptop"
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Trouble at gate landing. Took a long time to off load"
