Cons: "I was caught off guard to find out at time of check-in that I had to pay a substantial amount for carry-on when I had specifically asked for a carry-on not just a personal item when booking my reservation. I ended up paying more than saving where I could gone with another company.VERY DISAPPOINTED"
Pros: "Very polite"
Cons: "Nothing. This’s my first trip with Porter. Excellent in everything."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing"
Pros: "Only 15 minutes late and nice new clean plane"
Cons: "No entertainment No lounge No food"
Cons: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, we arrived at 9:00 for a 10:10 flight, and so were not allowed to try to go through customs to make the flight. When we asked if they could put us on the next flight and we'd pay the $100 plus dollars each to do so, as we realized that we were at fault for arriving late, we were told that they wouldn't do this for us because we had booked through Kayak and not through Porter directly. We were then told that we would have to pay full price for new tickets, over $800. I can't afford to pay another $800 and told them so. I realized we were late, but to be told that they could do nothing for us was horrible. They finally said they'd do it after we told them about our horrendous experience with them on our flight to New York, but then wouldn't let us take our carry on luggage on the flight and charged us a further $60 to put it in the hold. We were then told that they could only get us as far as Toronto, (AFTER we'd paid the extra money) and we'd have to find another way home from there. We live in Ottawa, that's a 6 hour drive, and neither I nor my son drive. It was an absolute nightmare getting back from Toronto, and we didn't get home until 1:00 a.m. Shame on you Kayak and Porter airlines. Our flight to New York was a nightmare (see my other email) and so was our flight home. I know you won't do anything about this and don't care about your customers, but I can assure you that I will be posting as many negative things that I can on social media, and will tell everyone I know never to fly with Porter airlines. Shame on you."

Pros: "Convenience to island airport in Toronto (that’s it)"
Cons: "Delayed flights to and from YTZ-EWR (due to missing crew members) Aircraft felt like it was shaking and floor vibrating the whole time (uncomfortable) Problems boarding, Porter did not check passports and allowed two passengers to board with expired passports so they had to be ejected off the aircraft once boarding was complete and took 40+ mins to find their bags Rude staff on the surround sound and when I asked for a bottle of water I would rather pay LESS and take the UP express to Pearson than EVER fly Porter again"
Pros: "Good service. Thanks"
Pros: "I have flown on Porter numerous time but this was the first for my family. They enjoyed the Porter lounge and convenience of flying from the Toronto island right into EWR. We were able to take the NJ Train right to Penn Station (NYC) faster than any taxi."
Pros: "Either my mistake or a computer glitch gave me a ticket for an evening flight when I was looking for a morning flight. I was able to avoid switching fees by showing up at the airport for the first flight, and I was able to be seated comfortably. The staff at the check in was very nice and helpful. There is no entertainment so I gave that a one. On the short flight that I was on there was a choice of snacks, I chose almonds, thank you very much for the almonds and beverage. Happy travels, everyone!"
Cons: "They wanted me to check my carry on which could easily have fit under the seat in front of me."

Cons: "Are you kidding?"
Pros: "porter gives clients a civilized treatment because of its smallness and amenities"
Pros: "Great service! Attentive staff. Fabulous free lounges with drinks and snacks. Cappuccino in real cups in Toronto. Free wine and beer on flights. Real glasses on flights and in Toronto lounge. Gate agents were friendly and so helpful. Nrwark had a nice smaller lounge. Lots of legroom on flights."
Cons: "You have to be aware that these are props, so flights do get delayed or cancelled due to weather. Both of our flights were delayed. But they were very up front about it. Also put us on earlier flights automatically which was nice."
Pros: "When we went to check in counter we were early enough to get on the flight before ours and we arrived hour and half earlier Make sure your carry on bag is 9kgs or less or you will have to pay to check it"

Pros: "Overall great experience after a hectic weekend in New York City! Very relaxing, check-in to Uber"
Pros: "Pretty much everything was good on the flight and afterwards, even with a delay it was a pleasant experience...."
Cons: "The only problem we're the gate agents in Newark, they disappeared for 20 minutes and no one was at the gate even after the original boarding time had come and gone. When she finally came in there was neither an apology or even an acknowledgement that I was there. 5 min after after she Arrived I had to get her to stop what she was doin to ask if si would make my other flight , all she said was " not sure" no sign of even wanting to help. She was awful"
Pros: "Small airport"
Pros: "on schedule"
Cons: "I arrived early enough to possible catch the previous flight, but the gate attendant didn't want to be bothered with my request."
Cons: "Being delayed 10 hours"
Pros: "Well located at LGA (NYC) with it own section of gate doors that is just Air Canada. Multiple flights leaving where EXTREMELY delayed, the staff put on their thinking caps, they started putting people on standby so most customers leave on an earlier flight! I was located in an extra room chair (free) due to this adjustment of delayed flights and was a great experience."
Cons: "It’s the usual BS that you get at airports....TSA is always insane but honestly it was better than I thought l."
Pros: "My passport wasn’t signed and I couldn’t locate my pen. The agent had a pen in front of him and refused to let me use it. He informed me that his pen is a personal item and that I need to learn a lesson that all travelors should have a pen handy. He proceeded to move me off he line and board additional passangers."

Pros: "New plane!!"
Cons: "No WiFi"
Pros: "The crew on the flights was great over all but everyone else that we encountered seemed confused, rude, and/or uninterested in helping anyone."
Cons: "Multiple times on the trip we were told one thing only to be told the complete opposite by someone else a short time later. No two teams seemed to have any clue what the other was doing and there seemed to be no overarching strategy or systems in place company wide. We have flown with a baby many times on my airlines and this time was by far the worst- they do not seem like a family friendly airline at all."

Cons: "Was not on time, old air craft."
Pros: "Air Canada sucks! Rip off artists. Service is poor and price gauging is rampant"
Pros: "Im not impressed with air canada. Every time I fly with them there is ALWAYS a delay. I understand that they cant help weather. But when your flight gets delayed over an hour due to their own computer system failing on the way to newyork and to not be compinsated at all its not acceptable. Even on my way home from newyork we were supose to board at 7:55pm and ended up boarding at 9:40pm. they decided to pick and choose people to be boarded on the earlier flight that was right before mine. Not at all fair. I used my whole 30 minutes free wifi (that cuts in and out constantly)before we found out about the delay then I was left with nothing. Not cool when you cant contact anyone. Also REALLY ANNOYING. and the staff are rude if you ask them anything. Then on the plane i wasted 5 bucks trying to buy wifi since you guys dont even have it on your planes for free like delta does. Even then you pay for the worst wifi on the planet where your messages take a half hour to go through and over my whole hour and 10 minute flight i had 3 messages because of your horrible gogo wifi. Waste of money. Overall this whole air canada experience made me want to rip my hair out and stressed me out to the point that I dont want to fly again. I will more then likely not fly with you guys if it can be avoided"

Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time."
Cons: "Cancelled flights, delays, no refund option so I had to wait 15hrs to get to a 1 hrs destination. Then they lost my luggage so my mini weekend away turned into a disaster. I basically wasted $1,000 for a nightmare trip. If they would've just issued a refund in the beginning I would've been fine w the cancelation."
