Pros: "Was offered a earlier flight that was available when we arrived for check in"
Cons: "I thought I had paid for baggage in advance but obviously there was a glitch in the payment process so HATED the cost for 2 bags. We traveled with 6 other airlines within Europe and none charged this exorbitant amount... NOT VERY PLEASED Check in person wasn’t very pleasant to deal with. I think she was having a bad day!!! All other staff and flight attendants were pleasant and good to deal with."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants, service, and landing!"
Cons: "Flight took off 30 min late"
Pros: "Comments above apply to Toronto-Halifax flight."
Cons: "Flight delayed in 15 minute increments b/c of overheated planes until it reached 3 hours. Haven't you had summer before? Announcements about ongoing progress were infrequent. The waiting lounge was standing room only."
Pros: "Very easy comfortable boarding process. Staff on every part of the trip was super helpful and joyful."
Pros: "Shuttle/downtown convenience / ease of boarding procedures due to small size / coffee in lounge!"
Pros: "I could not believe that the wine and beer were free"
Cons: "I did not like the landing. Too much delay and I was concerned that I might have missed my next flight to Newark"
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: "Good service"
Pros: "Reliable, comfortable, punctual. Great service."
Pros: "It was my first time flying and the staff was so accommodating and helpful!"
Pros: "I worried about flying in a turbo prop plane but the flight was supriseingly pleasent. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay extra to pick my seat assignment but I understand that was only for the lower priced leg as there was no ectra fee for the "flexable" return leg."
Pros: "Toronto City airport is a convenient place to connect and Porter makes the experience nicer with a very good waiting area/lounge. Porter flies small planes but the seating is far more spacious than on the major carriers. I actually had legroom to spare whereas my knees are usually crushed on other airlines."
Pros: "Porter was very prompt on their loading and take off. Complementary wine and beer in delight was a bonus. Complementary beverages and he mix was a nice surprise during my layover as well. Their waiting area was large, adequate in seating and comfortable."
Cons: "The bathroom stalls at the waiting luge were small. You can barely fit your luggage in there with you."
Pros: "The lounge at Billy Bishop was lovely, and thee flight attendants are very pleasant."
Cons: "My flight was delayed because they said there was something with their fuel, and my connecting flight — which Porter told me would be held for the many of us relying on it — took off 10 minutes beforee we got in."
Pros: "flight delayed, connection not possible, over 1 h waiting on phone to rebook! compensation minimal"
Pros: "On the whole the experience was good ."
Cons: "Took Too long at the check in counter."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Would like a sandwich instead of nuts"
Cons: "We've been sitting on the ground in Toronto for an hour. When we landed they said no gates were available, which is moronic."
Pros: "The flught was great. Very impressed by real glass glasses. The flight attendants were wonderful"
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "HATED having to take a bus from the plane to the terminal. I had to pee really bad and it took forever. I'm sure there was a reason but it wasn't clear to me, and I was super uncomfortable and unhappy. But I'm not blaming Porter Airlines for that either."
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: "Small airport. Easy to find everything. Ferry ride fun. Staff did not seem happy to be at work nor did they smile or acknowledge me. I asked 2 staff questions and was barked at: red line! And was told to get into a line that was non existent outside of security."
Cons: "I asked if I was supposed to leave my luggage in the rack that was just outside of the plane because I saw that's what everyone was doing. I was told it was my choice but that if it didn't fit in the overhead I would have to come back out and put it on the rack. I was very dismayed when I got off the plane to see that I had to wait in the hallway for quite a while until my luggage appeared. It was a real traffic jam of people. I really wish I had put my luggage in the overhead. Also, minutes before boarding we were told to go and verify our passports. It was quite a rush to run to the other end of the room, wait in line and then get to the boarding gate. I barely made it back in time even though I had been waiting there for nearly an hour ."
Pros: "Like the complimentary lounge and good plane snacks. The crew was helpful and we were on time."
Cons: "The connection process was confusing. We were already at the gate we needed to be at but they made us go to a gate agent who simply walked us back to where we were originally standing."
Pros: "No issues. Made it easy for me."
Cons: "Nothing. -all good"
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"
Cons: "Seats did not recline at all"
Pros: "The cordiallity and the service"
Cons: "lack of inflight wifi"
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: "i love flying porter"
Cons: "40 minute delayed boarding. No big deal though"
Pros: "Friendly and efficient ! Great experience"
Pros: "Extremely delayed flight for no apparent reason with very little communication"
Cons: "Not getting to my destination on time. Missing appointments. Being trapped in the terminal with a guy in a donald trump hat."
Pros: "I especially love the lounge in Toronto - comfortable seating (some with access to electrical outlets), a bank of Mac computers available for passengers to use, free coffee, cappuccino, espresso, cookies, soda, water, free Wi-Fi,..Flight was on time, crew was friendly."
Pros: "Amanda, flight attendant was 'top-flight'!"
Cons: "There wasn't anything to dislike."
Cons: "Not so crowded during COVID. Every seat full"
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 customer service phone number was impossible to get through on in order to take to someone within 24 hours of my flight in order to make my Special Meals request as I have Celiac's Disease. I was unable to make this selection at booking as when you book through a third party like Expedia, which I did, you cannot access the same internal tools required to make that selection. You can ONLY then call once you have checked in before the flight in order to let the airline know of your Special Meal needs. This is not only a terrible policy as it undercuts those who ARE ultimately still buying tickets to their airline, and that the airline is CHOOSING to sell. It provided me with an extremely subpar experience of the airline but left up to the last minute with doubts about my ability to board a 13 he international flight without the reassurance that I would have ANY meals aboard and no other options should that be the case. Right before my flight departed I was reassured that the information we had requested Expedia relay to the airline internally the day before, who we called when we couldn't get through to the airline, WAS able to convey this Special Meal request and I was going to have food on the flight, so I then did not purchase a bunch of snacks in the airport to have as options. The first meal in, no Special Meal was provided and I had to explain then entire situation all over again. They assured me they would figure it out and get me taken care of. However, no one who assisted me conveyed this to anyone else on the flight and every time food was dispersed, same situation. This was stressful and exhausting and the options provided me were modified to be gluten free, such as an entire plate of fruit for my snack, instead of the protein heavy snack everyone else received, because there truly wasn't extra for that type of dietary restriction. This was stressful and I was very hungry on the flight. One of the attendants got me a few chunks of cheese from first class, but otherwise, it wasn't great. I would advise travelers with Special Meal requests NOT to fly with AirCanada."
Pros: "Liked legroom in the emergency row and the quality of the new entertainment system."
Pros: "Everything else was fine/standard."
Cons: "Not all ground staff are crosstrained on how to accept manual payment for extra luggage and had to wait an extra half hour for the only person who can process a debit transaction. Does not make sense..."
Cons: "The aircraft was so small there was not enough room for even most standard size carry-ons. The crew were not patient and gave passengers attitude for trying to bring their carry-ons onboard. On the way back from Toronto, we were sitting on the runway for more than one hour waiting for "de-icing". If this is a recurring thing, why not time the arrivals and departures better to avoid making people sit there, disconnected from everything and waiting? Also the screen on my "entertainment center" was broken but thankfully I had my own book to read. Air Canada has not had the most welcoming crew or most up to date fleet in my experience; I fly with them mostly because of their cheap fares. I guess "there ain't no such thing as a free lunch"."
Cons: "Time is money. Instead of telling customers to arrive 3 hours before departure and it is their problems if they can make it, a better way to be helpful is to have representatives ready to spend 3 minutes to look at customers' status, offer feasible options and point people to the right directions right away. Be a part of the solution! Don't be such a pain when you can offer a helping hand."
Cons: "Food not included with insane flight costs"
Pros: "This review was for flight there, as we chose another carrier on return. Crew was great, boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The food was not good, especially a meat & cheese wrap as breakfast- I have anosmia and cannot smell & only have about %5 of my taste capabilities intact and even I thought it was inedible. No air vents was uncomfortable. Not much entertainment to speak of. Seats were pretty cramped."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No food, no entertainment. Very uncomfortable plane"
Cons: "Air Canada is just worse and worse"
Cons: "I was held back for 'random' security check. Security lost my boarding pass and didn't care. Only found it because my friend asked them to check a table where they had put it. They didn't apologize for any inconvenience and instead security chief kept asking more questions. Truly atrocious customer service."
Pros: "the fact that is was an overnight flight"
Cons: "- Had to sit by the bathroom again! - they ran out of food - seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "I was on 4 Air Canada planes none of them were clean; the seats are not cleaned after use. The staff are pretty rude. The food was terrible."
Cons: "Flight cancelled on Monday due to runway repairs. Rebooked to Wednesday."
Cons: "Flight cancelled on Monday due to runway repairs. Rebooked on Wednesday. I could walk faster."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 1hr after everyone got on board to wait for a few passengers who were on their way to the airport. It's unbelievable."
Cons: "Our connecting flight from Toronto to Thunder Bay was cancelled. AC put us in a hotel for the night. Thanks for the $15 dinner voucher. Almost paid for the salad. Then we had to get up at 530am to get the 6am hotel shuttle in order to get back to airport for our 8am flight. They seem to always cancel the 9pm flight from Thunder Bay to Toronto because not full enough. And the last flight is over sold so we have to stay the night in Toronto. Then don't offer the 9pm flight. Passengers have other commitments in their life's. We don't need AC to just hold us over for the night because one of their flights is have empty."
Pros: "No screen creates a longer feeling flight."
Cons: "No good food."
Pros: "Flight timings were perfect for my schedule. Boarding and departure were timely as well."
Cons: "Not the most comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "I was unable to get a seat at check-in. The flight was overbooked and I had to spend 2 hours arguing with the attendant to get a seat. The attendant finally started arguing with me. Very unprofessional and unacceptable service..."
Cons: "Leg room is insanely tight. Sure i'm 6ft but this is the first time I felt my legs were swollen when I finally stood up to deplane."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "The anxious flight crew. Would like more variety on the player and I shouldn't have to watch a 4 minute commercial after every 20 min episode, especially when it's my own device."
Cons: "I needed to sleep ( it was 1:00 am in the city I originated from) and in the smaller plane the seats barely reclined and it was hard to get comfortable, let alone sleep."
Pros: "On time. Clean plane"
Cons: "Miscommunication with luggage No food included but at extra cost No entertaining at all! Only through wifi in your own device and you have to download an app BEFORE boarding for it to work but yet, no one tells you"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable, crew was nice"
Cons: "Entertainment system was lacking in movies and other things to watch"
Pros: "It was on time, and quality service, but actual comfort of flight was not good, landing was very rough and we seemed to circle around Los Angeles for a while before landing. Also, the headphone jack on my screen didn't work so I couldn't movies which was disappointing on a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "it was a horrible experience and i will never fly with air canada again. best of luck"
Pros: "service on craft was exccellent, friendly, enough time for the travel too."
Cons: "stupid automatic kiosk, they force us to take it even it wont work because of my name is too long. Have to wait in line and get bypass when using kiosk. Damn it we are in 2016, can you have smarter computer? I mean, I don't have a first name with 1,500 characters in it, when you FORCE us to take it, can it be useful one time?. And, the check-in was terrible improvising."
Pros: "seamless flight"
Cons: "movie choices were poor"
Pros: "All the crew was nice and helpful"
Cons: "No wifi, bad tv options, bad food,"
Pros: "The fare was low."
Cons: "The incoming flight was two hours late, but AC did not notify us to tell us of the delay."
Pros: "crew was awesome"
Cons: "that people can recline their seats in coach. very uncomfortable and there's really not enough room to do this."
Pros: "Boeing 767 is a great aircraft in every way!"
Cons: "A shame to connect in Toronto!"
Cons: "They refuse to let me and my friends catch a flight....and they didnt even let us on standby...we had to get a rental car to drive back to nyc...the worst service ever....it just wasnt right to leave us stranded"
Pros: "At least we had movies and a book."
Cons: "The checkin staff were not at there designated area on time and the flight was delayed for over an hour causing us to not be able to board our connecting flight from Toronto to Milan."
Cons: "No free meal on 6 hours flight."
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "Delayed for 4hrs and less than adequate meal voucher for $10 for dinner? Very disappointed and I'm a long time AC customer."
Cons: "Flight left 20 min. late and did not so much as get a pretzel with our drink."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "A 3.5 hour layover is more than sufficient for a connecting flight. Air canada messed up and almost lost my luggage in toronto. This airline has the worst customer service. Pay for food on a 4 hour flight? Are you kidding me?"
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "There was no entertainment."
Cons: "They could have rushed more to get us off the ground quicker."
Cons: "When I checked in at Ottawa they gave me a ticket for the Toronto to Orlando flight but there was no seat #. They said get it when you are at the gate. They knew all along there would be no seat # ever as they had overbooked by 12 passengers but didn't have the decency to tell me or apologize and explain. I was in line-ups for the 3 1/2 hrs I was in Toronto trying to get a seat and not knowing till the very last minute that I had one. The very back row next to the toilet. I will never recommend to fly Air Canada."
Pros: "Friendly crew and nice experience overall, entertainment top notch"
Cons: "Could not buy food with my debit card.....was hungry"
Pros: "The flight crew were nice and friendly, though they weren't very on top of trash pickup, but they were chipper and that's always better than grumpy crew that are super-efficient. Also, our luggage made it with us despite a tight connection."
Cons: "53 minute hold time to call center (before my call was even answered) to order vegetarian meals for flight (the day before flight) -wish that could be done online, vegetarian meal request not transferred to new flight after we missed our initial flight due to first flight delay, lights not working properly for half of flight (sleeping child under spotlight), the pasta dish, collecting garbage in my seat throughout flight (particularly after meal service), cramped seating, lack of entertainment, and they are now charging for alcoholic beverages on international flights. I'm not a big drinker, but I still enjoyed that perk."
Pros: "Friendliness of flight attendant. Plane clean and newer than others I've flew on."
Cons: "Lack of more flights throughout the day. Also sometimes flights are late as there are crew changes or planes flown from other cities to Toronto to accommodate the flight. Making departures late to leave. In spite of this, I would still fly Air Canada."
Pros: "The flight on its own was just fine."
Cons: "We were delayed about five hours because of a mechanical issue, resulting in a plane change. Although it was apparent they knew about this well in advance, we were not told ahead of time. We could have spent way less time in the airport. The staff were all very friendly, but when it came to compensation we were only given a $10 meal voucher near the end of our five hour wait. Most people had eaten by then, so it felt like it was the very least they could do to make up for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Staff was courteous"
