Cons: "My seat was covered in crumbs, cleanliness overall could have been better."
Cons: "Buyer beware! When you buy this basic package, they charge $37 for your first bag and another $50 for your carry-on. I just paid $97 for one piece of luggage and a carry-on! This practically doubles the cost of the ticket. Not only false advertising, but highway robbery!"

God Bless all the staff at Porter Air Lines. thank you so very very much, Barbara Ann MacMahon-Firestone, Toronto,Ontario."
Cons: "3 houra delays and no storm!"
Pros: "Easy. Relaxed. Cheap. Great!"
Pros: "Lounge Snacks"
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "The flight was early!"
Cons: "It was uncomfortable because the flight was so long, and I couldn't stretch out very much"
Cons: "it was the last connecting flight and it was cancelled."
Pros: "Good in flight service"
Cons: "Flights delayed both ways. Anything from an hour to five hours. Very inconvenient."
Pros: "Read similar comment left for windsor to toronto flight."
Pros: "- Staff/crew are exceedingly pleasant, although not necessarily 100% helpful - Free beer and great snack options onboard are a nice departure (see what I did there??) from the usual in-flight experience. - When they significantly messed up my entire first day of travel, without complaint they sent me a voucher for future travel."
Cons: "- My first flight was delayed and I wasn't notified until an hour beforehand (even though the flight was delayed due to an incoming flight they knew well ahead of an hour beforehand would not be there). I could have arrived at the airport later and paid less for my parking. - I was told by a gate agent I would still make my very tight connection (spoiler alert - I did not), so I did not ask to be rebooked on a later connection immediately. - Once it became clear I would likely miss my connection due to being delayed after boarding, I asked again about it, this time of a flight attendant. I was told there were 23 daily flights a day to my connecting city (there are not) and it would be fine. We sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes after landing waiting for a gate and the last hope of making that connection was gone. - Upon arrival in Toronto it turns out my connecting flight was cancelled and everyone had to be rebooked. The very pleasant customer service rep told me not to worry! They automatically rebook everyone and I've been scheduled to leave 10 flights later - the following morning. At 12:45 p.m. their best solution was a flight at 8:30 the next morning (later canceled). When I calmly explained that was not ideal, I was immediately given the "last seat out today" on a 9:30 flight (later delayed then canceled). I'm not sure who they were saving that for, but it is unacceptable to rebook people for the next day when they have free seats. I was resigned to spending 9 hours in the terminal (literally just a room with a few snacks) because I was also on standby for every flight until then, and fortunately after checking in again 5 hours later, I was handed a ticket for the flight leaving in 15 minutes. If I had followed Porter's original plan, I have no idea when I would have made it, as I already mentioned both of those other flights were later canceled and I've already gone over how Porter rebooks passengers. - I found out after I spent $20 Canadian on a sandwich and chips via the Porter website that they are supposed to give meal vouchers in a significant delay, but I was not offered one. - On the way back, I saw myself being set up for the same rigmarole. My first flight was delayed more than a half hour, leaving me with a very tight connection. Thankfully, I arrived at the airport earlier and was able to catch an earlier flight because as it turns out, the connecting flight I would have missed due to the delay ended up being canceled. I can only imagine what the rebooking process would have been, so I am glad Porter is accommodating about switching flights. I imagine they do so to save them the rebooking later, but still, it is not something all airlines will do. - Both flights out to Montreal were incredibly hot. I tend to run cold and I was sweating. The flights home on a warmer day were fine, so I'm not sure what was going on there."
Cons: "Flight left without us despite being a connecting flight and the customer service rep was rude and useless. Future flights were cancelled or severely delayed. Had to cancel that flight and use Air Canada to get to Montreal"
Pros: "Very smooth flight."
Cons: "Delayed at the beginning with no explanation."
Pros: "The seat has enough leg room. The service was very nice on the plane with nice selections of snacks and soft drinks. It also offers wines and beers free of charge. The waiting area which offers complementary snacks and beverages is more comfortable than the one in the US with very comfortable chairs and outlets with USB to charge your phones, computers...It would be great if the US airlines copy their ideas."
Pros: "All is well"
Pros: "Free beer wine and other soft drinks. Flight crew spoke both French and English which was very helpful."
Pros: "Always use and will continue to use Porter as they have excellent prices. The staff is always pleasant and always a hassel free flight"
Cons: "It wasn't so much Porter by Kayak. I had received a gate chance from 14 to 12 then 12 to 14 but never received the one to go back again from 14 to 12."
Pros: "The cordiallity and the service"
Pros: "Quick and easy."
Cons: "Cafe before security at Billy Bishop Airport doesn't open until 9am. The overhead compartment for seat was filled with Porter's supplied and I was forced to gate check my carry on."
Pros: "Didn't like it I don't"
Cons: "Waiting seven hours after being bumped because my flight was oversold. Watched a flight to Montreak leave every hour sibce I have been here. Finding out my name is not on the voucher list and gaving to fight for it to be checked out. Paying $9 for a glass of mediocre wine. All this for a flight that will probably be canceled, if my past exoerience with Porter is any indication. I missed my grandmother's fuberal this past summer because of Porter. I am DONE!!!"
Pros: "Travel was seamless Flights were surprisingly punctual Staff was friendly and planes are comfy for short flights - Lounge is the best ! definitely the highlight of flying porter. They stand behind their slogan... " Flying Refined ""
Cons: "Flight delayed. Seems to happen often with Porter...for some reason."
Pros: "Being treated like a guest instead of cattle felt like the old days of flying. From the extra leg room to snack and complimentary wine and beer, it was such a refreshing change . Not to mention the staff of Porter Airlines, every person we spoke with was pleasant and extremely helpful. We will definitely fly Porter more often!!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing to complain about."
Cons: "The crew were mostly great except one female flight attendant who was unnecessarily rude on two occasions on the short flight."
Pros: "The snacks provided were really great"
Pros: "I enjoyed the hospitality experienced. It stood out to me and I fly 3x/ month. In addition, I liked the lounge area was comfortable."

Cons: "The lounge at Billy Bishop airport was too crowded!"
Pros: "Roomy seats, very comfortable. Lots of leg room!"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Free wine I guess. They called security when they cancelled the flight. They knew everyone would be frustrated and annoyed. No refunds. No money for hotel. Terrible experience."
Cons: "You cancelled the flight saying it's because of weather but Air Canada was flying the same time with no problems. You should've let us know the last flight to montreal was cancelled long time ago."
Pros: "Very friendly in flight service Pilots made up time in flight Gate in Montreal was fairly close to curbside pick up"
Cons: "Pilots made up time in flight to catch up delayed departure. Great!! But, then had to wait on Tarmac for gate to be released by another aircraft."
Pros: "Crew were fairly attentive, have experienced better. Liked the Canadian entertainment options, even if very limited."
Cons: "Seats were okay, the plane is really showing it's age. Movie selection was very limited, and very dated."

Pros: "The flight was on time."

Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour"
Pros: "The crew remained quite calm and polite in a stressful situation, and they gave us free food and drinks for the inconvenience."
Cons: "There was an issue with plane's landing gear so we were delayed by over 2 hours (where we just sat in the plane on the tarmac) and we had to fly with the landing gear down the whole time. This meant we had to fly at 12,000 feet the whole time so it took longer, no luggage was brought on the plane, and passengers had to be moved around to redistribute weight, but we were never really told why or what was going on in terms of how it all worked which was quite scary. I'd say close to half the passengers actually got off the plane because they didn't feel safe flying. We got in over 4 hours later than anticipated with 0 luggage. Overall the flight was very scary and now we have no luggage. Had the option of having out luggage delivered the next day or a $100 travel credit. No credit or any compensation if the luggage was delivered."

Pros: "good value for money. Staff were helpful"
Cons: "A direct route from St John's to London."
Pros: "We upgraded our return flight to Plus. The extra space is great."
Cons: "Compared to our flight in, this was lacking a bit. We were only offered beverages one time, the flight attendants didn’t come to clear our waste. They were just sitting at the front in their seats and one was playing sudoku through a lot of the flight. If we hadn’t had such a great experience on the flight in, we may not have noticed the difference but this time it was noticably less attentive."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and friendly."
Pros: "On time. Efficient. No frills but perfectly fine!"
Pros: "flight was not full drinks on board free kind staff wonderful views"
Cons: "for a person measuring 2.00 metres / 6.6 ft the entrance to the plane is very low Standing up in the aisle was impossible."
Pros: "On time! Roomy cabin space and leg room"
Pros: "Crew is always great."
Cons: "The Encore planes are the cramped, noisy and slower Q400. If you request a window seat expect the possibility that you won’t be able to comfortably place both feet on the floor. Added bonus, to balance the plane they sometimes need to request passengers to move from the front to the back which slows down departure times."
Cons: "Horrible trip. Never again"
Pros: "Contrary to my previous experience this flight was on time and the staff was very courteous"
Cons: "lack of information due to delay"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled unexpectadly. Notified 4am with no resolution but to fly out almost 48 hours later."
Pros: "Punctual departure. (Made my international connection in plenty of time)"
Cons: "Being stopped at every connection for screening. No communication about why. Nearly missing the connection due to the screenings. Being held in holding because it was being confirmed that my bag would make it on my next flight and then once confirmed it never made it anyways!!! Unprofessional and poorly executed all the way through."

Cons: "I like the concept of boarding a plane by zone however if Westjet doesn't enforce it then the zone loading is nothing but theory. Time to put it into practice Westjet."
Cons: "Il serait bien d'avertir plus à l'avance les passagers au sujet de l'application nécessaire pour l'entertainement ou permettre de l télécharger via le wifi de westjet"

Cons: "Was cold on plane"
Pros: "Seats and plane condition"
Pros: "Tv screens and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "I paid 450 Euro for a return 2 hour flight & I didn't get a 20kg allowance. I don't expect a check in bag on a US or European budget airline but this is the national carrier. It's the first time I've paid for a checked bag in all my years flying with different national carriers. I.e. Qantas, Air New Zealand, Singapore to name a few. All in all. Air Canada charging like a national carrier but the baggage allowance policy of a budget airline. Not good enough in my opinion."
Cons: "5h travel at noon, no meal, this is a bit cheap."
Cons: "They feel like seats for budget flights."
Cons: "The seats are large, but they tilt forward. I'm 6'2" and have anxiety issues related to spinal problems. That forward pitch in the seat (half way up the seat) is an painful problem for people like me."
Pros: "The flight arrived about 30 minutes early. Also, it left a little late. For me, the less time on the plane the better."
Cons: "Guy next to wanted to charge phone a laptop in USB port in front of me b/c his was our of order. This worked out OK but in a small space it's not so good. He was bare foot too. Take of your shoes but wear socks, please....Plane was not hot, actual a litter chilly."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "On time and efficient"
Cons: "To pay American dollars for baggage on AC coming back to CANADA or to pay AT ALL for a bag"
