Pros: "Crew very nice"
Pros: "Nothing whatsoever!"
Cons: "Received e-mail about flight being cancelled on way to airport and could not get us on another flight for 4 hours. The cancellation was incredibly last minute and caused us to be stuck waiting in the airport almost 6 hours as the flight we got rebooked on was also delayed about an hour. The incredibly rude, unsympathetic and condescending associates that we experienced did not offer any solutions or show any compassion for the situation we, and others, were being put through. I will never fly Porter again and have told everyone I meet (and in my profession, that is a lot of people) never to fly Porter airlines. I was disgusted by the whole experienced. Shame on you!"

Cons: "Left late. Are later. No big problem"
Pros: "First time in 10 flights in 3 months flying with Porter in time - what a miracle!"

Flight to Windsor delayed as arrival from Montreal was late. 7:30 pm departure now delayed to 8:15 pm departure. I could have drived Ottawa to Windsor in same amount of time. Total waste of money! Still waiting at lounge in Billy Bishop Airport as I write this. And the weather was perfect today! What’s going on?"

A fellow passenger noticed me struggling with my bag and offered to help. After a long delay which wasn’t explained, someone came with a wheel chair to take me to my flight."
Pros: "Porter staff are friendly and professional. I choose to fly Porter when possible."

Cons: "First flight cancelled. Missed connecting flight. Flight delayed resulting in at least an extra 11 hours of travel time"

Cons: "The delays"
Pros: "Excellent flight. Saw a hot air balloon near the airport"
Cons: "Could not checkin on my phone, though received a paper boarding pass very quickly at the airport."

Pros: "Everything was on time ,the flight was comfortable,snacks were also good . The attendants were very friendly and couscous. I'll fly with Porter air again . Edward"
Cons: "No entertainment on board ."
Pros: "One of the hostesses from Toronto to Halifax was one of the sweetest and caring people. She was the younger of the two women (for lack of her name) and I wish I had taken her name to be able to let Porter know how nice she was! She really made the whole trip so pleasant."
Cons: "The lack of in flight entertainment/"
Pros: "My layover in Toronto was less than 15 minutes because there was a delay in landing due to a minor reason. However, as soon as I arrived Washington, my baggage was the first thing I saw at the baggage claim- inspire of the very short time to transfer the luggage."
Cons: "The toilet"
Pros: "Flights were on time, free wine and treats and very quiet efficient planes."
Cons: "Everything was great. There was a slight delay in Toronto and no announcement was made. That could be easily fixed."
Pros: "There were mechanical delays, so Porter gave an $8 voucher to spend in the airport, which was a nice touch since I had never received that from other airlines who also had mechanical delays. Porter was pretty smooth despite delays due to weather on the way back. Attendants were generous with the food servings. I love that this airline serves free wine."

Pros: "I am a passenger that needs assistance. The care I got was amazing and made my journey very pleasantl."

Cons: "Screaming baby and I couldn't wear my noise cancelling headphones"
Cons: "The crew were mostly great except one female flight attendant who was unnecessarily rude on two occasions on the short flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "As I was waiting at my gate for my flight, I notice that It's almost time to board the plane & there is no plane at my gate. I walk over the the lady's at the stand and ask if I'm at the right gate and this is when I'm told that my flight had been CANCELLED and no one thought to inform me. One of the ladies goes "You should have received an email" but I know that I'm not the only who was unaware of the flight cancellation as I found out later that 3 other people had been going through the same thing. On top of the terrible communication, once I finally got booked on the next flight out, I was sat beside the most obnoxiously loud & irritating person I have ever met. He was swearing and raising his voice the whole flight and the flight attendants completely ignored it. There was a small girl in front of me with her father and he tried to confront this man and tell him to lower his voice & still, the crew payed no mind. Also, I am an 18 year old girl flying by myself for the first time... This man kept poking me in the arm and leg trying to get my attention and was trying to get all this personal information out of me. This is harassment and if I had flown with a bigger airline, this dude would have been off the plane before it even took off. I was petrified the whole flight as he kept telling people that if the plane didn't take off in 30 seconds, it was going to CRASH. I had one of the worst anxiety attacks of my life & the whole situation was ignored by the crew. I WILL NEVER FLY WITH PORTER AGAIN."
Pros: "Service was quick and easy."
Cons: "No complaints."

Long delay die to pet mix up. Also bags took forever to get to carousel

Cons: "Be on time!"
Pros: "Crew and staff at gate fantastic. Accommodated me sitting with partner on both legs (booked flights separately)."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Always tough late at night."
Pros: "flight was fine and on time, this leg of my trip was easy"
Pros: "All westjet workers are amazing. Starting from the people at the front desk, the crews on the plan and the people that give direction."
Pros: "Good crew and on time departure"
Cons: "Overnight flight. How nice it would have been to have blanket and pillows as provided by some airlines ."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Very thankful my flight went smooth as I flew with my puppy."
Cons: "More room"
Pros: "The attendant didn’t take any chance on rainy whether condition and got me on an earlyer flight to make sure I wasn’t goinig to miss my connections flights. It worked out perfectly."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Thank you"
Cons: "Delays left us in the plane for almost 1 1/2 hours before leaving Toronto."
Cons: "No entertainment service."
Pros: "Nice new 737 max aircraft"
Pros: "Horrible check in"
Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "Plane and crew were good."
Cons: "Long delay due to cargo doors being damaged during loading of bags. Had to wait an hour for repairs."
Pros: "Need more leg room"
Pros: "Good price for long haul destination. Efficient check-in and boarding process. Decent leg room for a budget airline."
Cons: "Food choice a bit limited - especially the free offering. In-flight entertainment is only available from the WestJet app to view on your own device - you need to know this before you board - otherwise you are not able to access any of the movies etc."
Pros: "Had seats in row six -- plus there was room for both our carry-ons!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed taking off from Winnipeg 90 minutes with no explanation given. Made us late getting to Saskatoon and missed our daughter's scheduled ride to pick up our two cars as a result. Had to pay an extra two hours parking at airport, etc etc etc."
Pros: "Westjet service is always the best. Flight was smooth and seemed very short. Again the crew makes it the best!"
Cons: "We were late cause of a thunderstorm but that is nobody's fault."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "West Jet just runs a relaxed yet professional airline. They are just more laid back and accommodating. You can use any bathroom on the plane as well which is huge on those rare times you need to use it. They are funny and chatty and seem to enjoy working together which all translates to a less rushed and relaxed experience for us the passenger. I really can’t complain....I had an entire row to myself....the best you can hope for, when riding on a plain for hours that’s like winning the lottery!"
Cons: "No complaints for sure"
Cons: "I was in row 2 and they did not have the food item I wanted. Seriously?"
Cons: "The crew on the plain was extremely rude!!! Very very dissapointed!"
Pros: "West Jet never disappoints..."
Pros: "Extra leg room, staff very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No tv screens on back of seats, liquids should be offered more"
Cons: "having to walk outside the plane in the snow to get on the bus and vise versa. it was cold and I got a bad cold...."
Pros: "THE YOUNG PERSON FROM GRAND PRAIRIE AB WHO SET NEXT TO ME WAS A GOOD TRAVEL COMPANION"
Cons: "THE SEATS WERE MUCH TOO SMALL FOR TWO MEN BOTH OVER 250 POUNDS TO SIT NEXT TO EACH OTHER"
Pros: "WestJet was great. I had assistance this flight and they took great care of me"
Cons: "Totally full flight so squished in my seat"
Cons: "We were told not to take the late flight to TO as Westjet would not hold the connecting flight (TO to Gatwick) for us. This meant our TUI connection in Gatwick to Chambery would have been wasted along with bus transfers. West jet did not offer us AC flights that were available to keep us near to our schedule. We ended up cancelling the Westjet flights and buying AC flights to Heathrow at a cost of $3300 + $300 taxi to gatwick + abandoned bus to Gatwick Westjet did offer us a flight on Sunday ! In the end, we are not sure if booking thru Kayak was part of the problem as Wesjet staff said ..... Oh you booked thru a 3rd party Comments ?"
Cons: "The entire flight's baggage never were received. The stewardess even promised that all bags would be received within 20 min. We waited 1 hour until we went to go talk to someone to inquire about the delay. They opened up a baggage claim, but the claim status only ever says open or closed, which says nothing about the status of the bag."
Cons: "Lack of attention from aeromexico in customs to ensure making the connection. Sevice is a joke."
Cons: "2 hour delay, small plane, rude crew"
Pros: "The reservation was quick and effective"
Cons: "It was late. They were waiting on a flight from Toronto so we could board. We board the plan and sat for what seemed like a very long time. We were not even offered a glass of water on the flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 3 hours. We missed our connecting flight so we are in a hotel in Toronto now at 1:30 am. And our flight out is at 5:50 am and we will need to get up by 4 to get to the airport by 4:50. Getting our hotel and food vouchers was long and painful and disorganized. Would not fly with them again"
Pros: "Pretty quick boarding, although the boarding time was incorrectly mentioned to be too early."
Cons: "Had to de-ice so we left about 10 minutes later than expected, but somehow still arrived early… but our gate had another plane still using it. We ended up arriving at our gate 25 minutes late. That's unacceptable, especially on a flight that's just an hour long. The gate was so far from the public transportation (landed at Terminal 3, public transport is at Terminal 1) that I missed the bus - got home super late as a result."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Who decided that seats should be shaped that way? Always gives me a backache."
Pros: "Cabin Crew were nice"
Cons: "Very tight seating."
Pros: "Lots of leg room and liked the screens for each seat even though I could not listen to what was playing on it."
Cons: "No headphones and the crew member I asked said he would ask at the back but never got back to me."
Pros: "Crew was fun and helpful. Was extremely accommodating in helping me switch to an earlier flight"
Pros: "Personable and professional staff. Great service"
Pros: "West Jet is just so much more professional than other airlines that you could select ! The attention to detail goes above & beyond to make each person feel welcome !"
Cons: "From check-in to the flight crew, West Jet is the best !"
Pros: "As usual, the gate and air crew were extremely helpful and efficient. I love that the flight attendants almost always have a great sense of humour. This helps put everyone at ease and in a good mood for take-off. The flight was right on time."
Cons: "We gate-checked our baggage on the first leg of the flight and didn't quite understand why we had to take it off and back on again for this flight when it was on the same plane. There wasn't much legroom; and when the rather thoughtless guy in front of me reclined his seat fully, I could barely move. Luckily, it was a short flight."
Pros: "Best WestJet flight ever!"
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "No issue at all"
Pros: "same as above."
Cons: "same as above."
Pros: "Everything was okay"
Cons: "My boarding was no so good. However all went well."
Pros: "fair bit of leg room. fairly relaxing flight, as i am not a frequent flyer. good and safe landings as well as 'lift off' all staff was good on flight"
Pros: "Clean plane, entertainment, crew...WINE! This has been my best flying experience in Economy for a long time. Good leg room."
Cons: "The checkin agents couldnt help me to merge two itineraries for easier transfer between two WestJet flights."
Cons: "Paid for reservation of a particular seat. At check-in was offered my choice of another seat without regard to the fact that I had paid for seat selection. Westjet employee did not honour paid-for selection or offer refund."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Didn’t get to pick seats"
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and quick, flight arrived early. Service onboard was very good"
Pros: "New airbus 350-390 are worst than older planes. Economic class space is even smaller now, no storage space for the last few rows"
Cons: "Last 3-5 central rows in economy class have no space for carryons. On top of that, at arrival we realized they have lost our bagage, all 6, so we’re left with carryons. This may be our very last trip with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "A 1 hour flight, delayed. Meant I missed my entire flight and stayed I Ottawa International for 8 joirs"
Cons: "There was no coffee or tea available on the flight"
Pros: "Great staff!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Quick flight. Dlient Service in check-in was excellent, she went the extra mile to change my return flight to a more reasonable time."
Cons: "No snacks unless you are willing to pay more than 10 dollars lol"
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "The plane was confortable and the drive also"
Cons: "The waiting time at the Toronto airport was exagerated"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then without notice back on schedule and the we boarded and sat on the tarmac for an hour. Why board us if we can’t leave?"
Pros: "Take off take off and landings were on time or early."
Cons: "I could not find the AC outlet that was supposed to be there. I only noticed under the seat When deplaning."
Cons: "My baggage did not make the flight. It took 3 days to return it to me"
Pros: "Got to Newark fast luggage was off plane very quickly"
Cons: "Older plane no body at gate to drive jetway gaving us sit out on tarmac"
Pros: "Once boarded, the crew was pleasant and very helpful. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Air Canada check-in at YOW was overwhelmed. There were not enough agents to handle the amount of passengers or flights they had going out. I waited 50 minutes in a check-in line and almost missed my flight. Passengers in front and behind me had the same experience. Air Canada really needs to examine their operations at YOW and manage the situation better."
Pros: "Got there with minimal delays"
Cons: "Inattentive staff, broken tray table, seats not cleaned between flight ( covered in food crumbs), small seats"
Pros: "MIGHT give me a refund, and not WILL give me a refund"
Cons: "Service personnel at Air Canada were very helpful and re-booked me several times and when none of those flights left, they said they would refer me to refund department."
Pros: "Boarding was excellent, most of the staff except one was excellent. The flight was smooth. Got hooked on a new series that I started watching on the plane."
Cons: "The wait time between flights on the way home was brutal but you expect that if you are flying on points. What made it worse was that I had to leave the secure area and collect my bags then wait 8 hours in the airport only to go through security again. On top of that trying to get my baggage tag there was a female agent that should have retired 100 years ago directing people like it was our fault she still had to work. If you can't be nice you should not be in customer service."
Pros: "Pilot apologized that the entertainment system was down. Then suggested we turn back 10 years and do it the old way by reading a book or magazine to pass the time."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours"
Pros: "Staff were incredibly kind, courteous, and knowledgeable. I need wheelchair assistance and they handled that beautifully, asking thoughtful questions about my needs and adapting their plans to my answers. They also helped me with stowing my carry-on since I would have struggled alone."
Cons: "Unfortunately, through no fault of the flight crew or gate crew, we got one of the few remaining planes in the fleet that are so old that they can't fit a full carry-on bag in the overhead bins or under the seats. Larger carry-on items had to be checked through to final destination, which made a lot of passengers upset -- either because they were business people who needed to be able to work on the flight, or they had important baby gear in there that they would need before that, or they were traveling far away using multiple airlines and were rightly worried about lost luggage."
Pros: "A few turbulents just before landing but great flight crew."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not so bad..."
Pros: "We were upgraded to business class and received wonderful service by all crew members."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "The headphone jack on my seat was broken which for a 5.5 hour flight is quite difficult. The only compensation the air flight attendant offered was a glass of wine,which I couldn't drink due to being on medication. I had purchased 3 meals and 2 snacks so she could have comped one of them. This is the second time I experienced this on Air Canada with little to no appropriate service recovery. I had my iPad~an offer of free wii fii would have also been an option"
Pros: "- plane had more legroom than the usual - plane left and landed on time, an always welcome outcome for an AC flight - in flight movie selection was good"
Cons: "- plane was overbooked, and boarding took a while - staff only offered drink refreshments (ex. coke, coffee, etc) once, rather than the usual twice. The other time they just came by with water, which the flight attendant accidentally over-poured and spilled some on the middle passenger between me and the attendant. Good thing it was only water... - more turbulence than usual, but out of the control of the pilot"
Pros: "The flight crew went advice and beyond to help look after our two kids (ages 2 and 4). It was a full flight but they were the only children on board."
Cons: "Baggage fees and leg room."
Pros: "Food was actually pretty decent tasting and priced."
Cons: "One of the female flight attendants was quite mean and just had a poor attitude. Glares, muttering under her breath at passengers etc. Overhead storage is just a nightmare! Always filled to the brim. I've heard flight attendants bashing passengers about it openly. Maybe if you didn't charge $25 per bag per leg people wouldn't do this. Something reasonable like 5-10$ would help this problem HUGE."
Cons: "Crew were very rude"
Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."
Pros: "Good on flight entertainment. On this flight we had a good crew and good staff. However it has been mixed in the past with air canada"
Cons: "No food or snack. Only drinks or food for purchase."
Pros: "The plane was very new. Had a great entertainment system. Power plug ins. USB plug ins. Seats were a bit small, but when are they not?"
Cons: "They forgot to bring me dinner then when I finally got someone's attention they told me they had given away ALL the dinners. How is that even possible? In the end they gave me a first class meal so not bad."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and friendly. Check-in was quick and painless, despite the mobile boarding pass not working properly."
Cons: "Did not ear food or use the in-flight entertainment. Seats are TINY! As a person with very broad shoulders, I found myself literally wedged into a corner as to not bump the person next to me. These planes should not be 3 seater when they are designed for two."
Pros: "Staff was at least friendly"
Cons: "For a 5+ hour flight only beverages were offered - anything else (such as a snack or small meal) had to be purchased. Very cheap service IMO. The selection of entertainment (movies/tv shows) was exceptionally limited and out of date. Their way of boarding the plane (via zone) is very backwards as families with children weren't asked to board until half way through the plane loading (unless those families had already paid for the more expensive zone upgrades). Most airlines let them load first to give them extra time. My checked bag was 1.2kg over the limit so I had to open the bag and switch 1.2kg of clothing into my carry on in front of the rest of those checking in. What an embarrassment and such foolery. All in all Westjet does a better job for trips across Canada. Will not be trying Air Canada again."
Cons: "Squeezed in like sardines. Nickled and dimed at every turn."
Pros: "They our sits for a better one because of my 6 year old son."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Never made connecting flight due to delays on first leg of the trip. Airline was generally apathetic to situation."
Cons: "Very slow service"
Cons: "Air Canada as well as WestJet charge exuberant amounts for local flights. They offer services and leg room of a budget airline while charging prices at the top range of a regular airline. Lack of proper competition in Canada allows Air Canada and WestJet to charge whatever they want since there are no other real options"
Pros: "Nothin"
Cons: "IFE and food were awful. Space was cramped, lights left on for a night flight. AirCanada headphone rules are just dumb."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "We were dehydrated and the flight attendants were stingy with WATER."
Cons: "It was a short flight so everything was ok"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient."
Pros: "Originally this flight was scheduled to be an 1hr and 17minute flight. It only took 55 minutes from gate to gate. Flight attendant was really friendly, overall a very great experience."
Cons: "The aircraft that was servicing this route was tiny and at times I found it difficult to stand up properly without hitting my head. There was a little chop upon takeoff but besides that everything went smoothly."
Cons: "No variety in menu for a long time (business class)"
Pros: "Had extra legroom but paid for it"
Pros: "The fact that I was rebooked immediately to my new flight AC-DC 705 at 8:50 am by two wonderful ladies at La guardia airport who comforted then boarded me unto a flight due to the fact that I missed my original flight. This occured due to the Airport being Unorganized! As I had checked in well before 3 hours and was on time for my original flight at 8:30 am."
Cons: "I was rebooked so my new flight AC 705 was directed straight to Toronto. Only thing I disliked was that gentleman who was left at the gate for my original flight at 8:30am. He was rude!!!!"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Unable to buy food or drinks on plane without a credit. I don't have one !!!"
Pros: "Direct service is nice! Clearing customs in Ottawa makes life easier."
Cons: "Buttery pretzels in both directions that are way too buttery. Crew is never overly happy to be there."
