Airline reviews

Cons: "Small plane. Limited space for roll ones."

Pros: "Cheap price of the airline ticket."
Cons: "I was booked where someone was already sitting. It was difficult because I was with my two young children. And someone else was booked in my child's seat also."

Cons: "I booked this flight on Kayak. No mention at booking that this airlines has a ludicrous policy of charging $50 for a carry on bag!....wow!...last flight ever on Porter."

Pros: "Quick fligh."
Cons: "Having a terminal to check in would have been nice, I had no luggage to check and still had to wait 30mins in line."

Pros: "Crew was awesome."
Cons: "My seat was a bit grubby...food remnants on the seat"

Pros: "On registration, the agent request as to pay for a handbag! It’s only on Porter that I have to pay for it."

Pros: "I was surprised by the quality of the snacks and service."
Cons: "When sitting next to the window, your leg is usually forced up against the lower part of the concave wall within the plane."

Pros: "Thank you for offering almonds as a healthy snack."

Pros: "n/A"
Cons: "Was not offered a flight back to Ottawa, had to find a ride from Toronto to Ottawa once we landed .6 hours driving. See above."

Pros: "walker cookies"
Cons: "small plane, late"

Pros: "When flying Porter, not only do you receive leather seating"
Cons: "The passenger beside me was flatulating during the entire flight. It smelled of old meats and gruyère cheese"

Pros: "Cheaper cost Nice staff"
Cons: "Discomfort Small plane"

Pros: "Landing at Billy Bishop is very convenient."
Cons: "20 minutes delay on the incoming first flight, 35 minutes on the out coming flight. Our organization sent 100 persons to an event in Toronto this weekend. Some colleagues that had a 2 pm flight were told that they would leave by the 10 pm flight. Our flight eas already delayed, the door had been already closed, but it was reopened so that a passenger, who had arrived last, could go back to the lounge to pickup some fhat he had forgotten. Porter has become a very unreliable company. Like some of my colleagues, I will now consider flying out of Pearson airport sadly."

Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "The flight was about an hour late."

Pros: "They have much better in flight service"
Cons: "Every flight I saw by porter was delayed including mine."

Pros: "Efficacité. Confort. Service."

Pros: "Service of the staff"
Cons: "Delayed couple of times, the boarding didn't show on the tv so we were shocked and must run in a hrurry b4 the gate closws"

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: "Easy. Relaxed. Cheap. Great!"

Cons: "Damaged my fragile marked checked item. Would not compensate for the damage."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Everything else was good"

Cons: "I mistakenly bought a ticket on the wrong date. I tried to change it but with their $200 change policy, it was cheaper to buy a new one. Regretfully, I bought it with Porter again, only because it was the cheapest available and I was already out a lot of money. It had to be a later flight, and people were waiting for me in Ottawa for a wedding party. The flight seemed like it was on time, but instead of getting us there, they made us sit on the plane for 45 minutes to wait for other passengers coming from another flight. I would consider a few minutes nice and the right thing to do, but not 45, as this was a complete disregard for the rest of us. They said it was the last flight to Halifax. Great, that lets me know they just didn't want to put them up in a hotel. They have ridiculously high fees, but they won't deliver the service promised in a timely manner to save themselves money. Seems like they are pinching pennies at the cost of quality service."

Pros: "The free drinks."
Cons: "The lack of free wifi."

Pros: "The plane left and arrived on time. Flight attendants were friendly and professional. The flight was enjoyable."

Pros: "Reliable, comfortable, punctual. Great service."

Pros: "Complimentary water and snacks in lobby"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "Porter flight was fine."
Cons: "Every time we fly from YQB ( Quebec airport ) the flight is either canceled or delayed for several hours. We will try to avoid Quebec airport if possible in the future."

Pros: "Excellent cabin service"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight to Chicago was cancelled, we didn't get so much as an email letting us know (checked the flight status at 1am for a 8am flight and it said on time) we found out at the porter counter at the airport that or flight was cancelled and we were delayed until the next day!!! Next day we realize they didn't schedule us on the first OR second flight of the day but the third so we were delayed by 36 hours instead of 24!!!! The planes are tiny, very old, quite dirty. The staff seem totally non chalant about all these cancelled flights and allllll of the delays and repeatedly say that the airline is understaffed... hello i don't care why my vacation was cut short by 36 hours and i got stuck paying 200$ for a hotel room tat i didn't get to stay in!!! Get your act together Porter!!!!"

Pros: "Loved service and lounges. Would absolutely fly Porter again. Lots of legroom."
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."

Cons: "45 min delay"

Pros: "Crew and organization"
Cons: "Smaller space but whatever"

Pros: "Even with the delay, the crew was polite, the ride was fine and the price worked for me. I will fly Porter again."
Cons: "Had a delay and changed gates. It was hard to keep up with what was going on."

Pros: "Uneventful flight!"
Cons: "Delay in Toronto...not told why..."

Pros: "Excellent crew service , plenty of leg room & free drinks."
Cons: "Again late take off"

Pros: "I flew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 hours"

Cons: "They were not organized. Delayed every flight and cancelled two flights and offered no complemsation. I thought there'd be better customer service."

Cons: "Major delays. Flight hot. Crew very nice."

Pros: "The flught was great. Very impressed by real glass glasses. The flight attendants were wonderful"
Cons: "Everything was great."

Pros: "I LOVE the lounge in the Toronto airport. Free coffee is such a nice touch, and chairs are super comfy. Way comfier than anything you can sit on at my home airport, Logan (in Boston). Staff were super friendly (maybe because they were Canadian?)."
Cons: "I didn't like being herded from the airplane through various hallways in the Toronto airport. We were basically chaperoned by a Porter employee and made to wait in various areas before we were allowed to proceed to the lounge. That was weird and nobody ever explained why."

Pros: "very nice crew, comfortable seats"

Cons: "Security could be faster. Added second screener eventually but they cut I close"

Pros: "Nothing I can think of."
Cons: "Multiple failings in customer service. To address situation airline appeared to make arrangements to suit itself first, not passengers. Made to wait nearly 10 hours before replacement flight cancelled, which it obviously was going to be. Arrangements for accommodation then made, when they could have been hours earlier (as other airlines did). Only one small meal voucher supplied. Did get another the following day for breakfast after asking for one. Airline did nothing to prepare new plane to leave on new scheduled time the following day."

Pros: "A flight is a flight"
Cons: "Flirght was delayed because of weather, fine. We learn about the delay after the time for departure was passed . Initially a fifteen min delay become 30. No communications, everyone standing in line until we are called to board by a teenager . It was too icy to get on the tarmack so we got to stay in a damp corridor until they clear the way. When we got in the plane , after some wait we are told the plane need de-icing. It took one hour before they finally got it done. All this time the Porter web site was useless. It even said we departed. All the aggravation could have been avoided if Porter would be more transparent about their delay and had better ground coordination with the airport personnel"

Pros: "Free beer and snack"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1.5 hours. Waited on tarmac in Ottawa because of frozen equipment. In total I was delayed about 2 hours from scheduled arrival in Ottawa."

Pros: "Real glasses on the plane that was nice"
Cons: "Well first they rebooked me due to weather from Quebec City to Toronto, but had no ability to print me a boarding pass. So I had to wait in line in Toronto for a bairisng pass only to realize she printed out a boarding pass for my ORIGINAL flight. When I asked the agent about it, she said "oh, well you better run to catch is then." WTF! First time on Porter and never again. They're supposed to be some sort of luxury experience which is laughable."

Pros: "Flight left 30 min late but crew was very apologétic and they made up some time, flight was great!"

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: "없음"
Cons: "비행기 지연, 4시간 30분 기다림. 예정 도착시간보다 5시간 늦게 도착"

Pros: "Nothing good to say for this flights overall."
Cons: "Spent over two hours on the plane/tarmac waiting for take off. Air Canada sucks."

Pros: "Consistent experience that gets you from A to B while providing nice perks (free stame-day standby on the old Rapidair routes)."

Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "We continue not to crash."

Pros: "I sat in a seat that wasn’t my assigned seat, and no one said anything. It was awesome!"

Pros: "Service counter staff was helpful to confirm seating although I did not like being put on standby. This happens too often with Air Canada."
Cons: "Stop the overbooking!!!!!"

Cons: "Not enough movie options"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2 hour delay because of rain west jet and porter were on time but air canada delayed My seat was apparently broken had a window seat with no one else in my row and then I was placed ina Center seat although other options were open The attendant comes on the air and says they need to manually start the engine one by one because the electric start to make it easy was not working All and all not a pleasant experience at all"

Pros: "Smooth as you like"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "See above - seats worn out, entertainment worn out, Crew battling old tired aircraft. Massively overpriced. Bring on WestJet direct to Ottawa."

Cons: "Late. Wifi on the aircraft but didn’t work. Inflation GHY service suspended due to reported turbulence."

Pros: "Super easy flight with no hiccups"

Pros: "The seat beside me was vacant, so I had extra room."
Cons: "Flights in the late evening from Toronto to Ottawa always seem to be delayed. We spent a lot of time boarding, and a lot of time de-icing before take off. There would have been plenty of time to serve refreshments during de-icing. But refreshments and dismemberment of ear phones only began once the plane was airborne. There was not enough time to service all the passengers at that point. I'm not sure why Air Canada cannot at least give you ear phones when boarding. And why cannot refreshments be served during de-icing?"

Pros: "Air Canada is fantastic. Will never use air india."
Cons: "I liked everything about AirCanada and nothing about Airindia."

Cons: "The fact i haven't boarded yet."

Pros: "Pretty routine"
Cons: "Long delay, but weather dictated this."

Cons: "Seats are always too close to the ones in front , crushing knees."

Cons: "The crew didn't finish the inflight service so a bunch of us didn't get drinks or snacks. This was all the more frustrating when the flight then circled Ottawa for 20 minutes before landing."

Pros: "When you plan travel over the Holiday season you expect hiccups and huge crowds and a lot of grumpy people in unrealistic hurries....his the me was not like that at all. Everyone was great except for security in Calgary!!! Don't know what the deal was but they set a record for the slowest I have EVER been in. It took so s almost an hour and there were not that many people in line...it was epic"

Pros: "I think cost me without needing to go back and forth"

Pros: "Pathetic delay time that was not weather related, they should have had another plane. I will not say that I will never fly Air Canada again just because departure time may leave me no choice but given a choice that suits my travel schedule it will not be them."

Cons: "N/c"

Pros: "On time Excellent take off and landing Good service"

Pros: "unfortunately, not much."
Cons: "The check in was a mess. Ticket counters were scattered, three flights going to Canada and no one was directing the lines. People in line were shouting at each other and getting angry. Took two hours to check in.....had to run to catch flight and I was there two hours before boarding time."

Pros: "Leg room adequite."
