Cons: "Honestly, even if the aircraft was delayed, there is nothing one can do and just be patient. Lunch and dinner vouchers were issued, that was well appreciated!"

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."
Cons: "We could have left on time & we’re Not being informed as to when we’ll be going. Your web site isn’t giving me any info about the connection I’m missing with porter too."
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."
Cons: "Plane had to return due to bad weather at destination. 90 minute delay."
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"

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: "Free wine"
Cons: "Hot plane"
Pros: "They have much better in flight service"
Cons: "Every flight I saw by porter was delayed including mine."
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: "Staff was pleasant"
Cons: "Missed the concert I went to see. Total disaster."
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: "Arriving and calling someone to help me with the wheelchair was good. The women were so friendly and helpful. But when you're "stuck" in a chair and I arrived early, it would be nice for someone to check to see if you had to go the washroom. And I had to flag someone down to get me to the aircraft. No one came by and offered. But overall fantastic experience. I would fly porter again."
Cons: "Wish their was more food on the flight. Even though it was a short one."
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: "Reliable, comfortable, punctual. Great service."
Pros: "It was my first time flying and the staff was so accommodating and helpful!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for six hours causing many customers to miss connecting flights, customers were rudely handled. Porter staff were extremely unhelpful. Customers were verbally attacked when asking for help and several walked away in tears."
Pros: "The complimentary self-serve drinks in the boarding area which included sodas, water, espresso, coffee and many other coffee products."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing, great price and 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: "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 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."
Cons: "None."
Pros: "The flught was great. Very impressed by real glass glasses. The flight attendants were wonderful"
Cons: "Everything was great."

Cons: "No entertainment on board ."
Pros: "very nice crew, comfortable seats"
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: "Flight left 30 min late but crew was very apologétic and they made up some time, flight was great!"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to crew scheduling and is completely unacceptable."
Pros: "Amanda, flight attendant was 'top-flight'!"
Cons: "There wasn't anything to dislike."
Pros: "Free cookies"
Cons: "The flight crew seemed like they all hated their jobs"
Cons: "I did not like that my flight was canceled, and then delayed a few times. I did not like leaving my original plane only to wait in a hallway with everyone else for almost twenty minutes to finally be allowed to go to customs."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The Porter desk staff were pretty quick in recognizing that a hoard of passengers from a super delayed flight needed to find their connections immediately. They were able to print out new passes and direct flyers in only a few minutes."
Cons: "Porter flies out of Billy Bishop in Toronto, and the dated airport definitely has an impact on you when you are stuck there for long periods of time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, crew in general was disorganized, most usb charging ports weren’t working, touchscreen is very outdated"
Pros: "The on-board crew were great. Super friendly and chatty. Almost a WestJet feel instead of the serious aloofness that AC is known for"
Cons: "The entire HUGE MESS from booking til sitting on our last airplane. The “new reservation” system is a horrible joke. The right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing so you get completely wrong info and they won’t do anything about it. I’m a wheelchair assist and had to call 6 times to remind them to put it on my ticket even though each time I was shown that it had been added. They kept seating on the back row of the plain and blamed me for not calling ahead to “let them know I was wheelchair assist so they could reseat me” BUT...they won’t answer you call unless it’s 24 before your flight and then to check at the airport who then tells us it’s out fault cause we didn’t call more then 36 hrs ahead...YOU CANT CALL THAT FAR AHEAD...and ...get this “they don’t have wheelchair assist on my ticket/file”. I about lost my mind over the hours on hold and every different answer as to what what to do and in the end blamed us. ASTONISHING TO ME. THEN THEY HAVE THE NERVE ON-BOARD TO ANNOUNCE THEY ARE THE BEST AIRLINE IN NORTH AMERICA 2019...HORSE PUCKY!!!"
Pros: "Great flight crew and smooth landing"
Cons: "Pretzels are not a good snack"
Pros: "Just the crews"
Cons: "I feel the options when the flights didn’t work out could be much better and the managers could be more helpful with finding accommodations. For example my flight was canceled the young lady behind the counter was more helpful than the manager when exploring options to get me on my way to Sudbury in which I had to catch the bus which was fine but to get to that conclusion took forever they provided a ride to the station and thats it"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Everything is too cramped. The sound on the entertainment unit is terrible."
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: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "We continue not to crash."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight, good movie choices"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "The few were friendly."
Cons: "The food selection was poor."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "My wife’s screen did not work. The pitch between the seats was too narrow for a transatlantic flight. Older plane that needed to be cleaned and updated."
Cons: "The crew was grumpy and unhelpful."
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."
Pros: "Food served was excellent"
Cons: "The TV screens are very dark and hard to see"
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."
Pros: "First flight comfortable fast clean aircraft Second flight older plane small not as clean"
Cons: "Air canada has a problem at every arrival gate each time we landed there was no sttebdebt st the gate and so we sat on the tarmac fir a while while they awIted somebody to come and drive the Jetway to allow us to park and deplane This happened all three times"
Cons: "Air Canada is just worse and worse"
Pros: "the cew was nice"
Cons: "The terminal had no food options at all when we were in a very delayed flight and hungry. We were not given seats ahead of time and therefore were assigned the last row which was very uncomfortable and could not recline. No one was at the desk to help with the seats for a Very long time. The boarding process was not good."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Pros: "Didn't actually take this flight due to a missed connection."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Some of the equipment on the airplane didn't work. TV monitors."
Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."
Pros: "Pretty routine"
Cons: "Long delay, but weather dictated this."
Pros: "Air Canada you suck. Told us that our flight wouldn't leave before we boarded as the computer system was down country wide. We still stood in like for an hour and hey could have manually checked us in as they did others. We were promised no planes would leave and when we got to the gate our plane was pulling away leaving 10 of us to scramble to find another flight. Customer service argued with me saying no flights were going to Ottawa and my Kayak app told me otherwise. Thanks for making my flight home for a funeral that much more stressful and having my family wait 4 hours risking all of our lives with freezing rain drive home."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "too hot in cabin missing brewage onboard"
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: "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: "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: "Everything, good food, good people, good times"
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfy, snack provided even though the flight was short"
Cons: "Cabin could have been a little cleaner before boarding"
Pros: "good overall...so MUCH BETTER THAN Air Canada rouge service we took from Ottawa to Venice. Rouge service is very poor!!"
Pros: "Cleanliness, crew (in general)."
Cons: "Problems with entertainment system sound seem to be a recurring problem aboard aircrafts - the jacks seem to be in bad shape in most, whether for the provided eraphones or those brought on board."
Pros: "Air Canada is not a goo Air Lines for customer service."
Cons: "I do not like there customer service policy."
Pros: "Airbus 380"
Pros: "Same as anove"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Service was poor. Attitude was less than enthusiastic."
Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "My "window" seat was beside a wall. So i actually didn't even have a wi dow seat, not really."
Pros: "They were able to put me on standby for the next flight and I made it on. I would have been upset if had to wait for the last flight at 10:55pm. I understand this is not always in the airports control."
Cons: "My flight from Montreal to Ottawa was canceled and I almost had a panic attack. I was flying alone for the first time."
Cons: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."
Pros: "I arrived early and was able to change my flight to an earlier one."
Cons: "The air hostess/stewardess was surly...and looked like she hadn't slept.."
Pros: "We left and arrived early, the seat was surprisingly comfortable (it helped that there were lots of empty seats, including next to me), my full-size carry-on fit easily in the overhead bin, despite it being a small plane, the in-flight entertainment was always on and pretty good... everything went well."
Cons: "Only the things I've grown to expect on any domestic service (e.g., no food)."
Pros: "Great service on a quick flight"
Pros: "Space and meals"
Cons: "Entainment"
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: "The airport was extremely packed, Unorganized and not well staffed. What I hated is that when I arrived at my original gate A7 the gentleman who boarded my original flight was unprofessional, rude, basically ignored me and said "You missed your flight !" Not even taking the time to listen to my situation or guide me in my next steps of acquiring a new flight to go to my classes and home in Toronto!"
Pros: "Everything but the size of the in-flight seats"
Cons: "Seats way too small and uncomfortable."
