Cons: "Return checking by Porter staff"
Pros: "Lead flight attendant was attentive, cheerful, and helpful!"
Pros: "Crew was great. Enjoyed the free wine"
Cons: "Include baggage and seat in price. Such a bummer to pay more at the airport"
Cons: "Especially for USA and Canada travel, allow some luggage, you guys embarrassed my child by charging her luggage fee because she had to bring a device she requires. She felt embarrassed."
Pros: "Amy was outstanding, she provided excellent service."
Cons: "I wasn’t notified that the basic fare didn’t include carry-on baggage. It was disappointing having to pay for checked baggage without notification."
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: "Seamless checkin and boarding. Captain got us home 20mins early. Love Porter!"
Cons: "I wish the airplane had USB plugs to charge my phone. Maybe one day Porter will retrofit the airplanes with more conveniences."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and rescheduled 2 days later!"
Pros: "Snacks and drinks on the plane are nice. Baggage was already on the belt at Billy Bishop. In general a lot less queuing and waiting than YYZ."
Cons: "New luggage rates make Porter an unattractive option compared to other competitors on short haul. Seats need to be cleaned more often, the surface was sticky."
Pros: "Crew and service were good"
Cons: "Improper information stating the fare could not have carry on bags. Small plane"
Cons: "I lost my flight because the person know how old me"
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"
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."
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 flight was good and excellent, boarding on time, arriving on time, the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The on-board magazine read that they should have had almonds as a snack option but the attendant said they do not take nuts as they could be allergic. But on my flight to Boston they served almond snacks. It is confusing."
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."
Cons: "Interior noise from plane is annoying"
Pros: "the flight itself was good. the price was also good."
Cons: "delay of 1hour for both flights."
Pros: "Loved the Terra chips. Also the price!"
Cons: "Why did I have to take my headphones off during takeoff and descent? No other airline I’ve ridden has had that policy."
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."
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."
Pros: "I loved the waiting area with free snacks and drinks while we waited for our next flight. So comfortable! I wish Porter had other flights in the United States :)"
Pros: "The seat has enough leg room. The service was very nice on the plane with nice selections of snacks and soft drinks. It also offers wines and beers free of charge. The crew were very friendly."
Pros: "I love the space on the plane. Not many passengers. I had the row all to myself!"
Cons: "The last minute call for passport validation. I thought I was all set and then a call came over the loud speaker to come forward and check passports. I didn't know where to go and I thought I with going to miss the plane. Other passengers asked me what was going on and where should they go. I figured it out and just made it back for boarding in the nick of time. I wish the call had of been made earlier or that a big sign was posted."
Pros: "First time using Porter and won't be the last. Great airport right in the center of Toronto and customs was fast and efficient. The flight was short so no food/entertainment but there wasn't a N/A choice, only stars..."
Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely welcoming and looked great. The gourmet snacks were great including wine service in glasses and not in plastic cups!"
Pros: "Staff was extremely professional and knew their job."
Cons: "Flights were short so did not have entertainment, which is fine."
Pros: "Seats were good, service was excellent I felt, good drink selections. I'd say it's regional version of Southwest. Please be mindful the overhead space is like that of Spirit (very small!)."
Cons: "Landing. Both times the landing steps were shaky and uncomfortable. Taking off was no problem at all so really not sure why landing was so hard to swallow... as in I wouldn't bring my baby on board just because of this."
Cons: "When i booked my ticket online there was no indication or warning that i needed to complete eta online as i was not traveling on a us or canadian passport. At the ticket desk i was initially told i could not fly because of this and that it was up to me to know about the eta requirement. Then i was told how to complete the form online and the problem was solved."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "No wifi or screen"
Pros: "Every thing was the best and I loved it The best airport, crew , landing , service and on time flight."
Cons: "I had problems with the check in, looks like they don't have experience or something is wrong with their system because we were 3 people with the same issue and there were only one guy helping us. I almost lost my flight. Then, the landing was awful, all of the passangers were scared, we didn't know what was happening and they never told us."
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 ""
Pros: "Flight returning to Toronto was on schedule"
Cons: "Flight to Boston was not on schedule"
Pros: "- frequency of shuttle - free wifi - free refreshments at the airport and on board - friendly check in staff - short line ups - quick customs process"
Pros: "The waiting room was like a lounge. So relaxing. The plane was the quietest turbo prop. Excellent service for such short flight. Best price of all. First time with Porter but not the last!"
Cons: "I never thought I would say that from an airplane travel. It was too short! Hahahahah"
Pros: "Get service, great food and drinking"
Cons: "I was in seat 17D. Thankful thank it was a window but the floor under my right foot had a popup that I had lift my foot ontop of to sit with my legs spread a normal distance"
Pros: "Lounge had complimentary beverages and snacks, security was a breeze, no line up. The complimentary snack and beverage (alcohol too!) was great."
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."
Cons: "Shaky and noisy flight, the transportation offered by porter could be vastly improved."
Cons: "No real food or snacks except almonds and cookies."
Pros: "Nice to offer chips"
Cons: "Very delayed, but with only vague and confusing explanations. Delay before taking off, delay on the runway. First they could not find plane, then could not find crew."
Cons: "Cabin was not well pressurized so my ears popped very badly. 24 hours later, they're still popping"
Pros: "Free drinks! Great snacks! Friendly crew! I wish I could fly Porter everywhere!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Wish there had been any kind of entertainment available or if there was it would have been better advertised"
Pros: "I was only a few minutes late and was not allowed to check in my bag or to board the flight."
Cons: "They could have let me board!!"
Pros: "Nice seats fast boarding"
Cons: "Snack can be more richer"
Cons: "In a flight that is only 1:45, to have an incoming flight delayed by 1:45 for non-mechanical issues can create a lot of havoc. On the turnaround, we boarded and arrived very late. We missed our connection to Sydney and had to wait 24 hours for the next flight out."
Cons: "i got to the airport 2.5 hours befor my flight to play it safe and waited at the check in for about a hour befor a air canada employe even showed up. vary poor service on the airlines part i will never fly with air canada again."
Pros: "Crew on board pleasant and fluent."
Cons: "Check in at Boston rather snotty. Lounge atrocious. The employee at the gate was not able, or willing, to help with seat mix up on next lap, Toronto/Santiago"
Pros: "Passengers were kept well-informed by staff on flight status. Boarding process was efficient. Gate agents and crew were professional and friendly. Appreciated the in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Seating was cramped and claustrophobic. I'm only 5 feet tall and my legs were stiff after a 90 minute flight. "Snacks" were kind of pathetic - tiny bag of pretzels. The worst part was the crowded gate area at Boston. It made me feel like a cattle holding pen. Since we're told to get there two hours early, it would be nice to have more than a tiny little snack bar with overpriced pre-made sandwiches and salads that have been sitting out for who knows how long. Crappy lukewarm coffee. Starbucks is right outside security, but of course we can't bring liquids through."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "I wish the entertainment system had had closed captioning, and/or that the inflight wifi had worked."
Cons: "5 hours delayed because captin was late."
Pros: "On board entertainment"
Cons: "No real food for purchase"
Cons: "The waiting area at the Boston airport is poor. It is very small, rundown and with limited access to refreshments. It's ok but certainly not a selling point."
Pros: "Most parts of the flight were normal - nothing exceptional or problematic"
Pros: "Ground personnel"
Cons: "The overall service on board"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Pros: "Employee in Boston terminal great help in sign in process. Volunteer, I believe, in Air Canada terminal in Toronto helped me find my way to another terminal."
Cons: "Flight delayed out of Boston. This seems to be the normal state of things. I dont think I've ever flow this route on and had an om time arrival This caused me to miss my flight in Toronto, forcing me to spend the night. I pressed their customer service rep for a hotel, but they refused claiming it was a weather related incident and they were were therefore mot responsible. The weather in Boston and Toronto was fine and at no poi t on the flight did anyone offer Any Reason Whatsoever for the delay. Moreover when i protested the customer service agent mocked me for not realizing it was a 'weather related incident'. I spent the night on the floor on YYC. Needless to say, Ill never fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "Wireless system slow and costly."
Pros: "Service was amazing. Flight was intime and they helped me with my luggages to be transferd directly to the last country eventhough they are two seperate booking"
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "Terrible service by the Air Canada stewardess. She was surly and unprofessional. Just flat out rude."
Pros: "I never got in my flight home for my aunts funeral and to get back to work because nothing on your website warned or notified me that I needed a visa just for a connecting flight on Air Canada so not only did I lose my money I was denied my flight denied the chance to be at my aunts funeral and get back to work. So my honest opinion is that I am extremely disappointed and deeply saddened by this evtire ordeal now I have to spend more money to purchase another ticket with another airline to go home. Thanks for the hassle! Aslim Hosein."
Cons: "Seriously? NOTHING AT ALL and I wish I could select no stars"
Pros: "Genial crew"
Cons: "Disorganization in Boston, we almost missed our connecting flight"
Pros: "My flight was delayed and I did not get my baggage when I arrive at Boston airport.. I had no clothes or anything to wear for three weeks when I got to Boston. I complain the very day I got to Boston airport. Up till now the bag I checked in at Toronto airport has not been given to me. The funny thing is after I checked in, it was not scan at any other place except Toronto. So it got lost at Toronto where I checked in. All that am told of is the baggage can not be located. Three weeks I spend at Boston, I had nothing."
Cons: "Onced arrived to my Montreal destination, I get informed my bag never made it onto the flight once we connected in Boston... Now dealing with AC to get it back. Very dissapointing"
Pros: "Quick, cheap, great service"
Cons: "Nothing bad, really"
Pros: "I was happy to be on the flight."
Pros: "The tremendous effort to support our making our connecting flight."
Cons: "The nightmare between flights in Toronto airport"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "I had visa on expired passport ,staff on duty took too long nearly an hour to clear me."
Cons: "The USB port in seat 26A was pushed in and wouldn't connect for power. Unless this was exactly the same plane it was true on both flight to and return from Boston. The LCD entertainment system is very slow to respond to touch. The default sound level is always too loud. The commercials take up the first 10 minutes (or longer) of the experience and make for an excruciating long wait."
Cons: "Flight was late taking off"
Pros: "Service on the flight is always good and the transfer in Toronto was seamless."
Cons: "The departure area in Boston is dreadful. no room and no amenities. Straight out of the 60's."
Pros: "Very smooth easy flight there were no delays!"
Pros: "Wheel chair request on arrival in Toronto was very poorly implemented resulting in two long delays"
Cons: "If Air Canada can't get these basics right it will be difficult to be competitive with Porter Air"
Pros: "Everything was fantastic. Great flight crew. Great stuff."
Pros: "Logan checking with own security checkpoint Boston to Toronto tv great Staff professional"
Pros: "The fast boaring"
Cons: "The 3hr delay. Not many announcements. No one at the gate/desk. Had to be in a crowded gate area with no choice."
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Poor organization and late takeoff"
Cons: "fitst leg was late. no communication about the connection. was not not clear whether we're going to make the connection - too much stress"
Pros: "i didn't like anything about this flight"
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed and everything else since boarding was a mess. It was hard for the fly hostess to keep her calm and we knew she was stressed, as much as many passengers who lost their connection or who had really tied ones. I noticed also that it wasn't the only flight delayed so I am not sure if this is usual with Air Canada."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "It was delayed which caused my connection to be cancelled and rebooked for next day. Was extremly uncomfortable and very expensive"
Pros: "The staff was accommodating."
Cons: "The flight had two legs: from Boston to Toronto and from Toronto to New Delhi. The layover was 1 hr 6 min, which was tight. After checking in our bags, we found out that the first leg of our flight is 2 hours late, so obviously we couldn't take the second flight. Looking at the TV monitors, I noticed that pretty much ALL Air Canada flights are seriously delayed. Luckily, there was an earlier flight to Toronto (which was scheduled to have already left, but it did not leave because that was delayed, too). The staff put us on that flight and double promised to make sure that our checked in baggage gets transferred to this alternate flight. The checked bags did not get transferred. When we arrived at Delhi, after an exasperating 1.5 hour delay after a 20 hour flight, the airline told us, and many others in the same situation, that our baggage did not arrive, and we have to come the next day to pick them up. The issue was, we were not staying in Delhi, just transiting through it. No luck, the airline said, because the customs have to be cleared at the port of entry. We are still waiting for our baggage. Oh, and if that was not enough, the airline allocated well separated seats for all the members of our family. I'd think it would be a common sense that people who have been booked on the same ticket must be assigned consecutive seats. But apparently Air Canada does not have much common sense. NOT flying with them ever again!"
Cons: "Late and overbooked Toronto Airport Dodd is bad. --- no veggie optional"
Cons: "The waiting room in Boston was awful and behind security, hot, small crowded. Delayed"
Pros: "The crew at the gate and onboard were exceptional! At the gate they made sure I could get on this flight even though the computer auto booked me for 2 days later."
Cons: "My bags didn't make it on the flight because of a close connection. Then I was rebooked on a flight 2 days later. This is unacceptable. I was expected to stay in Toronto for two days."
Cons: "crew are polite but cold and strict. it was a night flight and they were very noisy when serving the food."
Pros: "Bos->Toronto Good Air Canada at Boston Logan airport has there own gate area with only 3 gates. This reduces the security line for faster security check. However this also causes problems with PreCheck. See below."
Cons: "Bad There is only one line for security at Air Canada Boston Logan because of the small volume at this check point. Because of this, PreCheck passages need to hold onto there bording pass as they go through security. The first security person who checks ID and boarding pass only told my wife not to take off her shoes. He did not tell her to hold on to her boarding pass, so she put it into the bin for x-ray stuff. So later security personnel then told her to take off her shoes and gave her a body scan because her boarding pass was already in the x-ray machine. I always hold on to my boarding pass thru security but had to take my computer out of my carry-on."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment selection. It had starwars, that was a big plus."
Cons: "The seating accommodations were terrible l. No leg room, and no room beteween passengers. I Could not relax for a 12hr flight. Im debating of booking a new flight altogether home. WHyde do all converges have to be spring ruxe ("
Pros: "Everything at the airport and while flying went great!"
Cons: "When my flight got cancelled, the staff on the phone was not helpful. Also the email notification on the cancelled flight was poorly explained. I wish the Air Canada explained the situation more fully in the email. If they had, I wouldn't have worried as much as I did about my international traveling."
