Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Everything! the best part was that the they kept the middle seat empty!"
Cons: "For some reason, we were asked several times for Passports. This didn’t make any sense since we are US citizens with drivers license. They even had TSA talk to us. This has to be fixed. Otherwise, Delta experience was great."
Cons: "Nothing, really. Airlines unfortunately can’t make people patient or polite, & I can’t afford a private jet, so I’ll have to settle for an eye roll or twelve."
Cons: "The inoperative TV screens should be repaired."
Pros: "this is the airline"
Cons: "Plane was late taking off. Crew did not provide water when requested. They were busy with beverages that they could sell at a cost."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Pilots were attentive to kids and answered questions. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful."
Cons: "They didn't have some of their food options (and they apologized for that up front), but then ran out of the others by the time they got half way through the plane. That was tough for a five hour flight that went through dinner time."

Cons: "My luggage is lost."
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays... first class ticket from BOS to MSP got me a 6 hour delay and a middle seat in econ main cabin at the back of the plane. Delta you suck!"
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"

Cons: "We purchased a direct flight from Boston to Tampa. We paid extra for the convenience of a direct flight Our flight was changed without notification to a connecting flight that was leaving 10 minutes earlier and arriving 2 hours later. Due to malfunction with the kiosk and not a sufficient amount of agents at check in, we missed our flight by 4 minutes. The gate agent seemed to enjoy telling us, with our 10 month old baby, that we were too late. Our baggage, including car seat, had been loaded on the plane. We were reassigned to a flight the following morning. We missed a full day with family, had to travel back home without a car seat and return to the airport the following day. I was shocked and disappointed that not single Delta agent was accommodating or remotely helpful while we were at the airport. I've never had a problem with Delta before. We travel on regularly and would like to continue using Delta. I would like a voucher for my next Delta trip."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Paid $30 for wifi and it never worked. Would like a refund"
Pros: "Whole thing was easy, plane was nicely updated on the interior"
Pros: "The staff are wonderful and helpful. Best wishes to Delta. Please keep the great employees."
Pros: "the service in general very nice"
Cons: "Much older plane. Not as comfortable as some other planes I've been on."
Cons: "Not supplying headphones Crew not to helpful, one unpolite Refreshments ridiculous"
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "My wife was told she could not board our flight from Boston to Paris because her passport was expired, even though it was not expired. We were told that in Europe passports cannot expire within 3 months of your departure. However, Delta never let us know about this rule until we literally were boarding the plane. How they could not make us aware of this until we were boarding the airplane is unbelievable and unacceptable. This has ruined our vacation which has been in planning for the last six months."
Cons: "Missed our connection. Spent the night in Minneapolis. Luckily we had no urgent reason to get home to."
Cons: "Jet airways sucks"
Pros: "Free first checked bag, comfy seats"
Cons: "Would have liked more movie selection"
Pros: "Delta service and conford are great."
Cons: "Pay for wifi"
Pros: "Crew was great. Enjoyed the free wine"
Cons: "Include baggage and seat in price. Such a bummer to pay more at the airport"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. It happens, I know. First time using this airline, ended up landing 1.5 hour later than planned. The boarding process in Toronto was bizantyne, with some discrepancy in the checks and balance forcing a manual check in of all passengers. Amateurish."
Pros: "Crew was nice, free drinks of all sorts."
Cons: "Plane was 3 hours late leaving and we were given five different reasons for it. There were no weather problems. Overheads won't hold what most airlines will, and Porter's low fares lose value due to extra charges like seat reservation and luggage."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and rescheduled 2 days later!"
Pros: "Great crew. Helped me move to a seat closer to the front as ones further back make me claustrophobic."
Cons: "I don’t like your new policy of not opening up fee free seats 24 hrs before the flight. You used to do that and now if you don’t pay the extra $25 you get stuck in the back row even though there are lots of available seats. You can do better than this Porter. Especially for loyal customers."
Cons: "Email notifications of flight delay are sent too late!"
Pros: "free snacks and drinks, friendly attendants"
Cons: "over an hour delayed flight take off, state of the seats"
Cons: "The flight attendants had loud, personal conversations during the whole flight. Extremely unprofessional."
Pros: "Staff was curtious and helpful. Also enjoyed free snacks"
Cons: "No charge port or app to watch movies"
Cons: "There is only 1 lavatory on the plane and early in the flight they had to shut it down! Luckily there were no incidents but how can you not have a working lavatory?! What would they do if someone really had to go?"
Pros: "I slept the whole flight"
Pros: "I like their efficiency loading the plane and leaving the gate. Perks of having a smaller plane. Also, the snacks and drinks for such a short flight."
Cons: "Notifications the night before about departure changes with confusing language that never confirms if check in deadlines also moved forward. So we end up arriving at the airport at the original time to then be told the crew could NOT fly at the original time. If that is the case they should inform us that theee is no chance that flight could leave earlier. Additionally, the flight left even later than we were told."
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: "I did like the crew, boarding and comfort for a short flight."
Cons: "they forgot one of our checking luggage back in Boston. it was my fiancé luggage, but good thing it wasn't my luggage since I have my work tools on my luggage that I will need for tomorrow Monday the 23-2018"
Cons: "I had to cancel the flight because at 2 am on the morning of the flight i received an email letting me know they are delaying the flight no less than 3 hours. I was forced to pay more than 600 USD to make it to Toronto on time, and in the process somehow got charged an extra 11.85 USD by JUSTFLY - the airfare seller whose "customer service" deserves an even worse review."
Pros: "the location was perfect, i was able to walk to downtown and other tourist attractions"

Cons: "Disorganized lounge and very late updates on flight that was 90 minutes late."
Cons: "Getting an email as I was going to sleep advising my flight is cancelled and rescheduled on next available 640am two days later. Wow talk about leaving me stranded Who is paying my two extra nights hotel and food? Pretty unprofessional service Been on hold over an hour Come on porter Is that the best you can do?"
Pros: "That is lands clise to town"
Cons: "Lateness on runway for a long time before parking at gate Not pleasant experience My first tome On top of an hour late leaving with no announcements at the terminal Luggage was wet arriving as well All together not a fun day"
Cons: "Started with long delay instantly. After waiting in line to rebook my connecting flight which was missed because of daly I was given a boarding pas with the wrong name on it. I had to leave security line and go back to the counter. I was told it was no big deal and these things happen. After waiting a couple of hours for my next flight I was told my boarding pass had the wrong flight number on it. So once again I had to leave the boarding area to get the matter taken care of. It was a very frustrating experience."
Pros: "Quiet plane! Excellent crew."
Cons: "Logan Terminal E..."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and sincere."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I missed my connection to get home. The agent did not care that much to help me find solutions. I was very disapointed in the service."

Cons: "Lounge was a little run down looking. My flight home was cancelled, having just received the news as I was on the bus to the airport. So my 11:20am flight became a 6:30pm flight, no reason given. Later on in the afternoon that flight got moved to 7:30pm... At the airport, they changed the gate and then my final boarding time ended up being 8:00pm. So not impressed!! I had pre-purchased a bus ticket home which I lost the money on, Porter has not responded to my request for them to pay for that. PLUS my husband having to then drive 1.5 hours to pick me up and then drive us home another 1.5 hours at 10:30 at night. What a total mess, I had work booked the entire next day and night that I was now exhausted for."
