Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Flight canceled and booked to the next day. Then figured out to get another flight. Too tired and hoping to not fly Porter again. Both my flights, to go and come back from Canada, got canceled."
Cons: "Delayed for several hours."
Pros: "City Center airport and staff at Porter was great"
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed without explanation or rescheduling. Each "new" time had already passed when it was set, e.g., "The new departure time is noon" when it was already 12:15."
Pros: "Flight was smooth. Crew was nice."
Pros: "The hostess, seats,the peanuts"
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable seats, leg room is really good and snacks."
Cons: "Delayed flight 45 minutes"
Pros: "I slept the whole flight"
Pros: "Pretty much on time and smooth landing."
Cons: "b/c i booked (at the recommendation of kayak), my flight was cancelled and i was refunded by airline. My return trip was not returned to me."
Pros: "once we took off it was fine"
Pros: "We made it to our destination. Flight attendants were pleasant. Juice was served in a real glass not plastic. Storage in overhead very narrow. Couldn’t get standard size bag it it."
Cons: "Gate was changed but no announcements were made.Flight left over an hour late. No instructions given for people with connecting flights."
Pros: "I thought the staff - all of them, ground and cabin crew - were just extraordinary; so attentive, welcoming and really trying to make travel as easy and enjoyable as possible. For instance, my original first flight leg was delayed, which would jeopardize me making my connection in Toronto. The gentleman at the check-in desk at my departure airport immediately arranged for me to take an earlier flight into Toronto so I would not miss my connection. I didn't - or indeed couldn't - ask for anything more. Thank you to the Porter crew!"
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: "The service was great and fast"
Cons: "Both of my Porter Airlines flights were delayed. It seems they often delay / cancel flights"
Pros: "This was my first time flying Porter. The flight was a reasonable price, the service was great. The aircraft was a little on the smaller side but still spacious enough for comfortable travel."
Pros: "Only 2 seats together - not 3. Free drinks and snacks"
Pros: "Once they were up and running, Porter was a great airline. Flight was short so i didn't expect anything fancy on the food menu anyway"
Cons: "My flight got delayed at least 5 times. Not a great first experience. Had an eerie likeliness of Spirit, which we all know is just not a real airline. not sure if I would fly again if that is the general perception of Porter airlines. I could care less about comfort as long as I get to where I am going on time, which I did not."
Pros: "Porter was very prompt on their loading and take off. Complementary wine and beer in delight was a bonus. Complementary beverages and he mix was a nice surprise during my layover as well. Their waiting area was large, adequate in seating and comfortable."
Cons: "The bathroom stalls at the waiting luge were small. You can barely fit your luggage in there with you."
Pros: "The lounge at Billy Bishop was lovely, and thee flight attendants are very pleasant."
Cons: "My flight was delayed because they said there was something with their fuel, and my connecting flight — which Porter told me would be held for the many of us relying on it — took off 10 minutes beforee we got in."
Pros: "There was a delay on my first flight with a very short layover and everyone I talked to helped ease my worry that I'd miss my flight. They ended up prioritizing us through security and holding our connecting flight back until we got on."
Pros: "in general it was fine"
Pros: "flight delayed, connection not possible, over 1 h waiting on phone to rebook! compensation minimal"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and an earlier one with plenty of room the crew refused to book us on."
Pros: "Glass !"
Pros: "Lounge and snacks at Toronto were great. Staff were excellent. Flight was enjoyable."
Cons: "Delays mainly. Flight from Toronto to Montreal was almost jeopardized due to lateness of first leg (Newark to Toronto). Understandably there was heavy rain that day. Return journey, (Montreal to Newark via Toronto) the connecting flight was delayed by an hour. In general, on-flight food could be more substantial, considering the time between Newark and Montreal."
Cons: "It was an hour late taking off"
Pros: "Like the complimentary lounge and good plane snacks. The crew was helpful and we were on time."
Cons: "The connection process was confusing. We were already at the gate we needed to be at but they made us go to a gate agent who simply walked us back to where we were originally standing."
Pros: "Seats were not cramped, plane was not full. Billy bishop airport is very easy to negotiate. Nice lounge with complimentary snacks. And they're even kosher!"
Pros: "Complimentary buffet for lay overs."
Pros: "free beer"
Cons: "flights were late"
Cons: "Hot in plane. Late"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "Accessibility of canadian flights"
Pros: "Lounge with free drinks (soda, coffee, water) and cookies/snacks! Glass drinks glasses on the plane! And leg room!"
Pros: "On time flights & good flight crew"
Pros: "Boarding, my carry on got to go in the hole. Nice not to have to muscle it around. Personnel were so nice."
Pros: "The experience was great overall. The aircraft are modern and the crew are congenial. There are advantages to riding in such small aircraft, as boarding and deplaning are quick and easy."
Cons: "There really is nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Love the snacks and drinks, and flight attendants were friendly. Boarding and take-off were very prompt and efficient! The music the airplane plays over the loudspeakers was a nice touch."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but there was no communication about this. It would have been nice to have an update, just to know what was going on (especially since the flight prior was cancelled due to weather). The flight attendants also mentioned bad turbulence several times, which can make guests a little uneasy. I'm not sure how you get around this, and it's good to have a heads up, but the consistent reminders can be scary."
Pros: "Friendly service."
Pros: "Always delayed. Took 7 hours to fly from Montreal to Chicago with change in Toronto. A bit disappointing"
Cons: "Same issues as above"
Cons: "I needed to get to Boston that day so I woke up @ 5AM for that. I arrive at the airport only to find out that the Porter airplane just "didnt arrive from last night, we're so sorry". I asked that I get to Boston the same day - that's why I purchased the ticket. The crew said "they're so sorry all flights are booked". They could either have us get a later flight (not to arrive on the same day) or refund us and have us find another airline. We asked that they take care of our flights themselves - even with other airlines. They politely but categorically refused. We got our money back and flew with Westjet, and will likely never fly with or recommend Porter again."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough"
Pros: "The crew was great, which is not what I had expected of a crew stuck on a turboprop. A glass of wine and some snacks are included."
Cons: "My morning flight was canceled. Had I not checked the Porter website I would not have known, and would have been stuck at the airport for 8 hours until my rescheduled flight. I received a notification 90 minutes before departure indicating that it was canceled, but was not given a reason why (was it the weather? did the plane not make it to the airport the night before?)"
Pros: "Free alcohol and snacks! They don't skimp on drinks - you get a full water bottle, full can of soda, fairly large glass of wine, full can of beer - whatever you choose. Crew was extremely pleasant, kind and helpful."
Cons: "Planes were small propeller planes. Not a bad thing, just not my first choice."
Pros: "Excellent. Polite service, free (and tasty) food + beverages, (dry and otherwise) comfortable seats, other customers polite, bilingual announcements, fast + efficient. Really impressed! Good price too."
Cons: "Nothing, really! No in-flight entertainment besides a magazine, but all short flights anyway."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and they didn't even send a representative to the gate to let people know. I had to go down to another gate to ask about it. When people missed their connections they didn't even rebook them, they gave them a pamphlet with a 800 number to call."
Pros: "The service was very good and the airplane"
Cons: "Half hour delay in Montreal"
Pros: "Free drinks and snack"
Cons: "Old dirty plane, very noisy, poorly maintained, late"
Cons: "Delays are usual with Porter. Every time I fly Porter there are delays. One on leg I made the connection, the gate was still open, the screen said "final boarding call" and at the gate the lady said "sorry we gave away your seats". The lady handling all of the Porter affairs did not have a reasonable response for giving away our seats she just said "we didn't think you would make the flight", but apparently we did make the flight. Horribly unprofessional in every way. She did compensate us with a 15.00 dollar food voucher, but I would much rather have been on the flight I actually made, instead of having my seat given away."
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Cons: "Organisation wasn't good..they asked us to board the plane and then said they weren't ready then took them 1.3 hrs to fly oit of the airport . The flight attendant were rude..all of them."
Pros: "We flew to Toronto on the rebooked flight and we were treated very badly by the gate agent who simply told us: Go see customer service, you are not on this flight' without even an attempt to explain why we could not get on to the flight to London. I think they do not respect their customers. Very disappointed with Air Canada' service."
Cons: "Nothing about our trip to London on Air Canada was positive. We had requested vegetarian meals for all our flights. They did not provide us any food on the flight because they did not have our names on the list for Vegetarian meals on the rebooked flight. Our experience with Air Canada was everything that is the worst in airline travel and customer service."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The flight crew were wonderful to interact with and really helpful in accommodating my disabilities. Dinner was mediocre but at least some was available, which I didn't expect on an overnight flight starting after dark. ("Breakfast" was a slice of really tasty banana bread but nothing else.) I really appreciated the presence of outlets and USB ports for charging electronic devices, and that the seats had adjustable headrest flaps. These are essential features on long flights!"
Cons: "It's almost impossible to sleep in economy class seats, even with the adjustable headrests. I recognize that economy is supposed to be the "no frills" class of travel but sleep is not a luxury. Sleep is a basic human need, like food and oxygen. I don't actually believe that offering better accommodations for everyday passengers (off whom the bulk of airline profits are made) is financially unfeasible or unreasonable."
Cons: "Over an hour late."
Pros: "Great service, staff very pleasant!"
Pros: "The snack selection is excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Nice to have free entreteinment"
Cons: "It was uneventful, nothing negative simply average"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "AC lost baggage"
Pros: "Nothing except the plane was able to fly!"
Cons: "Old plane: Old seats No entertainment screens need to rent a mobile device -> this is sooo out of touch with reality of standard flights that it is even embarrassing to mention or to write it! BTW: My fellow flight companions did make fun of this during the entire flight! Not good."
Pros: "Alles goed"
Pros: "Good travel, pretty comfortable flight with Air Canada"
Cons: "Not the most amazing meal but well, not too bad for a plane meal."

Cons: "Food not good"
Pros: "tout était bien - very good"
Cons: "all was good"
Cons: "not even peanuts included on a 6h flight is remarkable"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The fact that you will have to travel almost 10 hours with absolutely no entertainment tv music etc. Not even a video on an era when Airlines should offer this as a standard. That was bad. Really bad"
Cons: "Airplane quality Seat dimensions Food quality Allowing passengers to sit where they pleased Dysfunctional entertainment system"
Cons: "put on stand by, while this was a non required stop over to Brussels."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "I was busy on a last minute call during boarding and couldn't lift my carryon with only one hand, so I asked for Mrs Caron a hand to help me steady the carryon while lifting it. She just refused and offered me to hold my phone. She did not give a reason why she couldn't help, cold and distant very far from welcoming, just there for appearance."
Cons: "My tv didn't work"
Cons: "Even though we checked in early, and had a three hour layover, they managed to delay our bags. It will be also 36 hours until we have them."
Pros: "there was in flight entertainment, had power outlets, and usb ports in each head rest"
Cons: "snack option was lackluster"
Cons: "Was put on plane to France, 5 hour layover. Still waiting for my luggage to arrive. Frustrating in extreme."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, Pilot was informative"
Cons: "Seats, Trays and bathrooms were disgusting. My tray had food on it, was sticky, had coffee stains... i didnt want to use it. Bathroom was disgusting, even at begining of flight. Seat was dirty and worn out."
Cons: "Only in Canada they make you remove headset for takeoff and landing."
Cons: "You need to warn people there is no in flight entertainment!"
Pros: "Decent legroom"
Cons: "Food, low quality and low choice entertainment"
Cons: "The service"
Cons: "In Toronto they told us that we most likely will miss our flight. Why?? Plenty of time!! No need for miss information. Ground crew not well trained.No boarding pass was given (which is fine). 1 hour wait because of power failure at the airport in Montreal and then we are about to take off and there was an engine failure so we had to come back again . Not good stuff!!!! How would you feel flying again air canada?"
Pros: "The food."
Cons: "The stewardesses don't smile."
Cons: "Seriously no leg room on long flight, uncomfortable, cramped Very delayed flight again."
Cons: "On the Montreal-Athens leg the meal was free but of poor quality and quantity. Breakfast was just a piece of banana bread... No entertainment system in the aircraft. Had to rent iPad with very poor quality earphones (struggled to listen to the movies) Also some of the movies were not adjusted for the iPad which translated into using only a portion of the iPad screen."
Pros: "One bag did not arrive."
Cons: "Their entertainment system relied on customer iPads! Software proved nearly impossible to install. Food service very slow."
Pros: "Friendly crew members"
Cons: "There was more kids then adults in the plane. The food was terrible, surged too late for a flight to a muslin country with almost everyone fasting on board. Once it was served, left side of the plane was served first while kids on the right side claming their meals and not understanding why they are not getting any. The bathrooms were dirty. No screens on board. The seats bead some upholstery work."
Cons: "Air canada rouge is a no frills low price airline, I probably wouldn't fly with them again despite the price point for that long"
Pros: "very nice people, food ok"
Cons: "Bad organization at Montreal for special passengers, plus technical pb => flight delayed 45mn"
Pros: "It wasn't a full flight, so there was more room to stretch out"
Cons: "Left my luggage behind (both mine and my daughter's) and I still haven't received it 3 days into my trip. Air Canada reps were not very helpful with information or solutions. I was in hold for almost 20min total (international call). Horribly unacceptable. All they initially offered was $50 to cover expenses (insulting)."
Cons: "Temperature too cold in the airplane Ipads to rent (no screens)"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The food was surprisingly good. Entertainment choices were varied and generous."
Cons: "My only complaint was that directions were unclear in the transfer flight. Travelers with a transfer in Canada did not have to go through the long customs line, but this was not at all clear, with signage or staff. It was a bit scary with a tight connection and a huge crowd at customs."
Cons: "need to use my peels ask for water -Never get it nasty smell from bathrooms"
Pros: "Great female flight attendant. So sweet."
Cons: "I watched the Big Short, which kept shorting. I had to stop the video about 15 times to get to the end. And one slice of cake is not adequate breakfast."
Cons: "Left late because of an alert. Trying to find a solution with customer service to get to Bergen in time was like pulling teeth. Gate agent was nice, customer service counter not so much. Left very late, meaning a sprint to make the flight in TO"
Cons: "Old model 767 with uncomfortable seats. No video player unless you bought your own or rented iPad for 10$. Kinda steep for an overseas trip. No free booze either."
Pros: "One of the crew went above and beyond. I ordered a vegetarian hindu meal but somehow was not on the list. Luckily one of the meal options was vegetarian. However he came back to get my information and sent a message to Zurich so that I would be sure to have the meal on my return flight. I thought that was really thoughtful and kind! I do not know his name but he worked in that included row 25 on the A side and I would have loved to be able to mention his name so that he gets a great review. Economy seats we very comfortable for me."
Cons: "It would be so nice if everyone could have the business class pillows. It makes such a difference not to have to use the little "pillows" that economy offers."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Meal was very average. Inflight entertainment had only one movie channel that worked about half of the 9 hour flight"
Pros: "Crew was excellent, space of seats not bad"
Cons: "No wifi, tv didnt work"
Cons: "Mind you this was a 9+ hour flight... - tv in headrest didn’t work and the controller had been ripped out of my seat so nothing worked - they did not have headphones for anyone to fit the two prong jack - no place to charge your own device - no reading materials - plane was unbearably hot - impossible to get water - my neighbor hit the call flight attendant button 3x and they kept shutting it off rather than coming to see me (someone a few rows back had a similar issue) - I asked 4 different flight attendants if there were any seats before getting this response “I don’t know but if you find an empty seat just take it”"
Pros: "The window seat"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi, tv didn’t work on back of seat, nor did the headphones, difficult to get water...had to walk to the back and request.... only offered wine 1 time.!!overal disappointed with the offering from this airline"
