Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Zillion flights on time ,regardless of impending weather. Great!"
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."
Cons: "Wasn’t warned on website about applying for ETA. Airline didn’t accommodate me in this situation and proceed to charge me $100 to change my flight."
Pros: "Once our plane finally got there the crew and people working the desk were super efficient and concentrated on getting us on our way ASAP."
Cons: "We were 6 hours delayed. The weather was bad so it wasn’t anyone’s fault. It just sucked."
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."
Cons: "Flight was late leaving, arrived in time to make a connecting flight, and sat on the runway for 30 minutes because all gates were full. Literally pushed the connecting flight out to depart so the plane I was on could disembark. Completely rude, booked me for the next day and left me in downtown Toronto at 10 pm with no place to stay. Cost 398 dollars at the cheapest nearby hotel, very nice hotel, but wtf? Customer service wouldn't even help to tell me how to get back out of the departure area."
Cons: "Delays! Delays!"
Cons: "Flight took off 30 min late"
Pros: "The check in process was very easy. The boarding process was very easy. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "There was not anything to complain about."
Pros: "Flight was efficient, smooth and relaxing. Best flight I’ve had in a long time. Only thing was we waited on arrival for the ground crew to taxi us to the gate, and to bring out our luggage."
Cons: "Wait time on arrival for ground crew at billy bishop... taxi to Tate was at least a 20 minute wait. Also waiting for luggage was another 20 minute wait."
Pros: "Kind flight attendants, everything went very smoothly"
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."
Pros: "Lounge Wine"
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: "On time departure, early arrival, no surprises."
Pros: "On time Bags received promptly"
Cons: "Baggage I checked in one bag only I did it online and was charged 31dollars US why? I live, in hk and was in Canada for flight and flight check in. Why not charged me the promised 25 dollars why us and why so high. My way to Quebec was 25 dollars Canadian ?"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "We had to pay for a different flight, unless we waited until the next day. Which was impossible for us. So that sucked."
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: "Entertainment n/a hence the one star. My flight was surprisingly affordable and I felt like I was being treated well because porter serves their cold beverages in these mini glasses made of glass (not plastic cups) with 'porter' written on them. I also got a complimentary snack on this 1.5h flight vs my parents who took a different 5h flight with AC and they got no complimentary snacks. It's the little things that make a difference these days. I also loved the Billy Bishop airport. We landed around sunset so the view of the skyline was beautiful and we were right at the water."
Pros: "The crew were very good"
Cons: "The Duty Free not much choice of alcohols"
Pros: "Glassware and snacks provided"
Cons: "Significant delays and lack of clear communication by staff"
Pros: "I love that you are maintaining a classy trip, complete with leg room for all and glasses for beverages!! I am so impressed."
Pros: "The staff and service are always so good. Love the lounge and not having to navigate an airport for a stopover. All airlines should do it like this!!"

Pros: "Very friendly"
Pros: "Great help locating a motel. I"
Cons: "No compensation for a canceled flight. Forced to leave the airport as it shuts down for the night, so we had to book a room."
Cons: "The service was horrible. I have been reaching out to the desk people every 30 min to understand what's the situation and if I will be able to catch my flight from Toronto to Montreal. The lady promised that we will make it and that all the flights were delayed anyway. I explained to her it's better for me to stay I. Chicago and just be on the earliest flight to Montreal following day, again she promised we will make it. We were 9 people that heard that. Once we made it to Toronto, no communication was made to tell us if we were going to catch the flight then they hold us on the plane for 10-15 min being told can't mixe us with another domestic flight. Once we made it to the connection we were told we missed it and that they book is on the SATURDAY morning flight... This was Thursday night. Nothing else, not even a hotel was paid. I had to buy another to Montreal because of plan I had on Saturday afternoon.... tHiS WAS THE Crapiest and worst service I had. Can get a hotel, or even a flight paid until Saturday this is absolutely not acceptable, and the people at the desk were not understanding, rude and not helpful until we talked with them for an hour We were also that because of weather nothing was going to be better then us flighting Saturday"
Pros: "We actually go snacks and drinks for free for a one hour flight !!"
Cons: "The airline has no app that u can check-in or have a bar code u can scan"
Pros: "Once boarded on the aircraft, the crew was did an excellent job of keeping the passengers updated on delays and thankfully we were permitted to exit the plane till delays were cleared up."
Cons: "Cancelled flight as well as very long delay which resulted in missed connection..understood though that weather was a major factor.. Waiting area in terminal leaves alot to be desired"
Pros: "Quick, efficient service"
Cons: "Check-in clerks made us work moving 2 kilograms from one carry-on bag to another, accepted both bags at the end anyway, useless formality."
Pros: "Always enjoy flying Porter. Very pleasant staff. Flight attendants were friendly."
Pros: "Only 20 +/- passengers. Cute plane. Nice attendants. Adorable Toronto airport."
Cons: "Easy flight except last 20 minutes. Horrible ear pressure. I don't think that can be helped."

Pros: "Everything was very pleasant"
Cons: "4 hour delay no information"
Cons: "I didn't know until checking booth is opened."
Pros: "It was good overall."
Pros: "No explanation of why the flight was 45 mins late - not one announcement. Sat in the aircraft in the middle of winter and it must have been 80 f ! Once airbourne temps became normal again..."
Cons: "Porter charged me 40 dollars to put my carry on away because it was 2 kilos over, and broke the handle of my new bag. Flew with them many times, but this is definitely my last."
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "$40 to check one bag is criminal."
Pros: "The Porter crew is helpful and nice."
Cons: "No TV or plug to charge devices."
Pros: "Good service, comfortable seats; of course, the overhead space is limited, since it's a small prop plane."
Cons: "Connecting flight an hour and a half late; the airport in Toronto is a tad small for the traffic/"
Pros: "The crew was on the flight were such great people i wish i had the names of the flight attendants they were such nice people. Made me feel very comfortable and were walking around back to back to make sure everybody had their belts buckled and were safe."
Cons: "The only thing i disliked was the fact that the delay was only supposed to be 25 minutes it turned into an hour besides that it was great!"
Cons: "O takeoff and landing - the nosiest part of the journey - why do you need to have earplugs, which are very helpful particularly on prop aircraft, taken out? From my experience you are the only airline in the world that makes passengers do this (earphones I understand -- i'm talking about earplugs that do not close off sound but attenuate it)."
Cons: "The flight itself was great but it was very late in starting due to technical problems with the aircraft."
Pros: "The staff member at the gate was friendly."
Cons: "No staff at all to help with checking in bags. No communication from the pilot or crew about what was causing delays, or estimated arrival time."
Pros: "good leg room and seats staff was courteous"
Cons: "not even peanuts..."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind"
Cons: "The entertainment selection could be better. I would have preferred in flight entertainment on my personal device via WiFi that I’ve seen on other carriers"
Pros: "It was 10 minutes early"
Pros: "I liked the movie selection, the service, and food/drinks."
Cons: "With a 20 minute layover, I barely made the flight and my checked bags/luggage did not make it. This had a horrible influence on my trip and I am heavily disappointed in Air Canada."
Pros: "Not much. Crew was professional but that is about it."
Cons: "Tight spaces packed in like sardines. FAA seriously needs to look at how these airlines pack us into these seats. Can barely sit in the set, no room to stretch legs, tray table hits my stomach, and I don't even have a big belly. When the guy in front reclines, cannot even get out of my seat. Chaotic boarding process without any order or instructions or announcements, poor food and entertainment."
Pros: "Movie selection was great! Thank you for having a vegetarian food option."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the entertainment was diverse which I loved. I watched a documentary on the Inuit and an Israeli movie ( both things I am not normally exposed to ). How awesome ."
Cons: "There is nothing I did not like"
Pros: "Overall a great experience."
Pros: "Plenty of room in economy for my 6'3" frame, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Everything was great - more selection on the movies/tv would be a plus"
Cons: "Flight was more than hour delayed. When it hit the turbulence zone it was insanely scary. I know it's nobody's fault but leaves bad felling about the flight."
Cons: "Passengers checking luggage are better off waiting in the economy line - it moved much faster than the business class line."
Cons: "For non-U.S. Citizens the transiting in Canada is inconvenient and expensive. I wouldn't travel through Canada by plane again."
Cons: "they should give a warning about downloading an entertainment app before an almost 5 hour flight. made no sense that our 1 and half hour flight had built in entertainment and the longer flight required an app"
Cons: "the flight was 5 hours late"
Pros: "Long wait for ticketing and at customs during transfer"
Cons: "What a mess. Every DELTA flight I have been on in recent months has had terrible delay issues - I'm cancelling my credit card."
Pros: "Crew noticed I was thirsty and gave me the can without asking"
Cons: "Crew said I wish they would hurry up and get off and I whipped my head around and she apologized. She meant no harm but that's not good service."
Pros: "Didn't actually take this flight due to a missed connection."
Pros: "The snack selection is excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "boarding was very painful , stood in line for over a hour to check suitcase . by time luggage was checked and i went through security the plane was boarding. i found luggage was damaged after i returned home. i then had to spend hours on chat to report damage and get a ref number, i then had to drive back to the airport for someone to see the damage and give me paper work. i now have to drive to thornhill to bring suitcase to see if can get repaired. plus i had to pay for parking at the airport. no satisfied with air canada at all."
Cons: "Same as above. Flight delayed by 45 minutes. No explanation given as to why... no inclement weather or other issues that day."
Pros: "Great price, easy transitions and connecting flights. No complaints here!"
Cons: "I was near the back of the plane and by the time the food cart came by, a lot of the items were sold out."
Cons: "Ridiculously little room on rouge flights. Sad. Choice of movies not great.food on offer mediocre. Everything else ok"
Pros: "The food is pretty good on Air Canada."
Cons: "Please communicate clearly to Paris travelers that Lufthansa in Paris only flies to places in Germany and that any other Lufthansa flight is basically an Air Canada flight. I went to the wrong terminal, terminal 1 to check in with Lufthansa. With the language barrier I had difficulty learning that I actually had to be in terminal 2a to check in with Air Canada."
Pros: "The crew was nice and understanding"
Cons: "I was stuck up against the back galley with no armrest on the aisle but that was only the beginning when the guy in front reclined his seat the seat back it was dangerously close to my head. In the event of turbulence it would have been easy to sustain a massive blow to the head from the seat in front of me during a whiplash type motion. The person that approved this seating arrangement should be terminated."
Pros: "From boarding to disembark net was ok"
Cons: "No refreshment on board"
Cons: "Second flight in a row delayed almost 1.5 hours."
Pros: "Crew and newness of plain"
Cons: "Food options and quality"
Pros: "On time boarding and take-off, polite and helpful flight attendants, arrived on time with all my luggage. What else could you ask for!"
Pros: "A few of the crew members were very pleasant and professional. The choice of movies was good, though I had to sit through five minutes of advertisements before they started."
Cons: "I was flying from London to the U.S. with a connection in Toronto. One of the crew members, who was somewhat rude, told me that I would need to fill out Canadian and American customs forms and go through both in Canada, and to not "stop for coffee" as the plane was 20 minutes behind schedule. I had a question about the Canadian form and asked another crew member who told me (correctly) that the first crew member was wrong; I did not need to fill out the Canadian form or visit Canadian customs for my one hour layover. When checking in at the kiosk, my seat was shown as an aisle seat so I didn't try to change it, but my boarding pass printed a middle seat which is very uncomfortable for a tall person."
Pros: "Attractive and competent flight attendants What a soft landing"
Cons: "Water tasted off Leg room inadequate for 6'1" person French safety demonstration Restrictions around wearing headphones"
Pros: "Crew was efficient, and the plane was on time."
Cons: "The seating and luggage storage was a bit cramped."
Cons: "Their choice of movies are exactly the same as my first flight from Hong Kong to Vancouver. Does it offer the same things for the other longer flights too? This is outrageous: you have to pay for the headphone."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic, and checkin was a breeze."
Pros: "They our sits for a better one because of my 6 year old son."
Pros: "People were helpful & friendly"
Cons: "Timing between flights was not enough to make connection. Had to take next available flight."
Pros: "We were delayed for 2+ hours. Not sure why. Thankfully I was sleep deprived and slept the entire way so it didn't bother me as much."
Cons: "Did not appreciate not having a movie screen. Renting an iPad for such an expensive flight is not good business."
Pros: "They boarded anyone carrying a musical instrument early."
Cons: "No snack; not even peanuts!"
Cons: "Why is it that Air Canada is the only airline that makes you take off your earphones during take off and landing? Are they stuck back in the 1950's?!"
Pros: "I got a larger than normal seat,"
Cons: "The idiots lost my luggage, and it took two full days and about 20 phone calls to get it back."
Pros: "The t flight was completely uneventful-the best kind."
Cons: "Lost our bag"
Pros: "Our family of four took this nine and a half hour flight on a day when it was important we stay awake. The inflight entertainment helped. My husband watched three movies, my kids and I played games (often together), and we used the accurate flight tracker to monitor our status. The food wasn't bad at all. Lunch was either chicken or pasta (which my son and I enjoyed) and we had wraps for snack (chicken or veg, which were very good). The beverage service was good and they came around a couple of extra times with water. The flight staff were friendly and helpful. My son is special needs and they were very accommodating."
Cons: "Boarding this flight was a zoo. Instead of orderly calling zones as usual, it was an every-man-for-himself atmosphere. And then boarding was actually onto a bus which carried us out to the plane. Boarding was in front and back of the plane, but deplaning was only at the front of the plane, which took forever and we had a connecting flight. Word of advice: don't try to connect with less than two hours if you're heading to the US. We had at least four checkpoints to go through. (But that clearly wasn't on Air Canada and they, in fact, had someone at Customs watching out for us.)"
Pros: "We had a pretty uneventful flight from Tampa to Toronto using Air Canada. That is a good thing. The airline offers complementary juices and drinks of the nonalcoholic variety. No complaints."
Pros: "Affordable flight, helpful crew and convenient booking"
Cons: "Somehow meal preference did not get sent to air Canada and being vegetarian I had nothing to eat. The cheap cup noodles and sandwiches with eggs and meat were not an option."
