Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Nice crew, loved the complimentary wine!"
Cons: "Airplane was too warm and made the flight uncomfortable."
Pros: "Very convenient, non stops and airport is close to downtown"
Cons: "Captain said the 1 hour delay was due to bad weather in Washington DC but there was no bad weather in DC. He should have said the truth. I was in flight 729 from Toronto to Washington Dulles airport on 7/7."
Cons: "I was required to pay for my carryon, which I was never informed during my booking."
Cons: "I paid almost half as much as I paid for the flight to have a carry on bag. I was not informed about this fer when I was buying the ticket. $48 is an outrageous fee for a carry on bag, I would never have bought this ticket had I known."
Pros: "In one hour flight I did not have any problem with crew."
Cons: "Passangers needs to be allowed carry on laguage. It is very uncomfortable . Parkinbg is big problem in downtown. It is better @ Pearson. These 2 makes my wife thinking to travel from Pearson."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and even roomy, compared to many other airlines."
Cons: "Two minor drawbacks: (1) In the Porter lounge, where I was stuck between connecting flights, the cost of food was too high. (2) The weather buffets these small planes more than would be the case with jetliners."
Pros: "Easy airport"
Cons: "My return flight was delayed by 90 minutes."
Pros: "Nothing particularly good about this airline."
Cons: "Flights are always delayed. You can just look up their average delay and compare it to other airlines. This last time, my flight was 4 hours delayed, which was announced by 30 minutes increments."
Pros: "Seats , hostess good"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour. And no functioning toilet."
Pros: "The convenience at YTZ airport."
Cons: "The lack of personnel at the Porter counters at Dulles. Even though I had paid for luggage online and checked in I still had to wait in line for a very long time. There should be a separate line for pre check ins and no carry on."
Pros: "There was nothing I did not like about this flight. The crew was great, very friendly and got me to my destination as they said they would. No complaints."
Cons: "the snack (chips) I recieved was expired and had a smell to it!"
Pros: "The cabin crew provided the most information out of the entire experience and were extremely friendly. I appreciate Dawn in particular. The lounge is nice when it is not so over-crowded. I appreciate some complimentary minor snacks and drinks; it certainly helped with the delay. What would normally be sufficient seating and power outlets became people tripping over each other with delayed flights."
Cons: "The lounge staff were hard to find and not communicative about delays. The board only had 1 update to my departure time, which was 30 mins after the originally scheduled time, and did not update again until 25 minutes after that second time had passed. The lounge staff did not make an announcement until after that board update and even then the information was wrong. The one time I found someone to ask a question to, I was given the same information. I had no idea why there was a delay or what to expect and no way of finding out. It made coordinating next steps upon my arrival to my destination extremely difficult. The lounge is not particularly well-equipped for multiple delayed flights."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 35 mins"
Pros: "Smaller gate lounge area with lots of private space and complimentary drinks and snack. All Porter employees that I had interaction were professional and attentive to my needs"
Cons: "No suggestion"
Pros: "Boarding and flight were fairly smooth, the crew were friendly and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Told that due to turbulence, no cart service would be available. There didn't seem to be a whole lot of turbulence that would prevent cart service. We did get a bag of terra chips and a small water."
Cons: "flight was delayed 3+ hours"
Pros: "Complimentary refreshment during layover."
Cons: "Flight delayed without informing the estimated time of delay. Confusing boarding time and gate number."
Pros: "There was a 30 min. delay. The waiting area was crowed and the audio system poor. The speaker's speech was so garbled it was hard to decipher what was being said about the delay and boarding. The flight itself was fine with very friendly crew."
Pros: "The staff is very competent. Friendly without overdoing it / being fake. I always fly Porter if I can, especially out of YTZ."
Pros: "Everyone was so nice and friendly Loved the snack"
Cons: "No complaints!!"
Pros: "very professional and great attitude"
Pros: "It was fine. Flight was delayed 30 minutes without warning, but not a big deal."
Cons: "I missed it because porter gave my ticket away when I asked for a refund for my precious flight because their customer service reps do not speak English well."
Pros: "It was an easy flight but the checking in was slow."
Cons: "Kiosks would not scan US passports.This info was not given to US CITIZENS upon arrival at check in counter.A few of us wasted lots of time trying to make it work."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for about 4 hours then canceled on a Sunday night and I wasn't rebooked until Wednesday morning. Porter staff said I would only be refunded the "pro-rated" fare for the leg that was canceled. This makes no sense as I had to buy my own ticket home from another airline and I didn't get to pay a "pro-rated" fare because I was halfway home. They also put us up in an extremely sketchy hotel that was unsafe, unclean and had an active prostitution ring going on."
Pros: "Great flight. Seats a little tight."
Pros: "On the whole a great experience"
Cons: "Nothing to not like"
Pros: "We enjoyed the free food and drinks in the airport and also it was our first time ever taking a ferry to the airport! Our flight was delayed slightly but the airport personnel communicated with us about the delay. Flight crew was pleasant and friendly. I would fly Porter again!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. I arrived an hour late and missed my pick up ride.I had to spend an extra $50 to get home."
Pros: "Complimentary refreshments. Not too much...just enough. Thank you, Porter!"
Cons: "My first time using Porter...certainly not my last."
Cons: "I've flown Porter every week for the past 3 months and this was the first bad experience I've had. The flight attendant was the rudest person and treated me with the most disrespect. He should take off two weeks and then quit, has given this great airline a bad reputation."
Pros: "The airfare is always reasonable and the service dependable."
Cons: "Boarding can be a little chaotic. They announced boarding 10 minuter after we should have started."
Pros: "On time, no issues, good staff"
Pros: "Love that Billy Bishop airport and its free cappuccino!"
Pros: "Great lounge area"
Cons: "I do not fault the crew at all for the weather or the delays. However, the airline desk was understaffed and did a horrible job of keeping passengers updated with news regarding their flights. I feel bad for the two staffers manning the desk because they had to deal with a deluge of angry people needing alternative flights because of all the cancellations."
Pros: "Porter is a generous and comfortable airline, with kind and helpful staff."
Cons: "It might have been the weather, but both flights were extremely turbulent during landing."
Pros: "Complementary snacks in waiting area."
Cons: "If you don't take a morning Flight on Porter, you cans forget about arriving on time. Their connections in Toronto are always late and they lie about the reasons. This time, their onsite customer service agent said it was mechanical. The pilot then told us it was a late arriving plane from another destination . It's worth it to pay extra to go nonstop. Never again"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to crew scheduling and is completely unacceptable."
Cons: "There were many delays on flights took that were not communicated to me until I had boarded."
Pros: "The flight in and out of Billy Bishop was fantastic. The flights were smooth and surprisingly quiet for a turboprop. The complimentary drinks and snacks at the terminal is something many other airlines can learn from. Will definitely fly with Porter again soon!"
Cons: "Limitations on distance due to the turboprop! If you can make flights to Florida, I would be one of many happy passengers."
Pros: "Convenient Toronto airport Complimentary coffee and cookie at the airport"
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."
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: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "Cancellation with little notice and rebooked on flight two days later."
Cons: "Tight cabin on Regional aircraft."
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Pros: "Many airlines have code share flights but it is better to buy ticket directly from the original airline as they keep on ignoring the code share flight bookings"
Cons: "Till last moment we were kept hanging if we will board or not as no seat number was allocated. I believe it was as we were from the code share airline not the real one"
Cons: "evry thimg on time"
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food"
Cons: "Premium Economy seats didn't have leg rests"
Pros: "Love Air Canada. Great service and good entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for several hours, while the crew assured us it was on the way. When it landed they still said it was being prepped. Then at 10pm or so, they said it was cancelled. Then we waited another hour and a half to speak to representatives and get our hotels. Then another hour to the hotel to go to sleep. Because I had to be back at the airport in 7 hours to catch the next flight. It would have taken me 2 hours to drive to Seattle from Vancouver."
Cons: "I did not fly to Montreal and I did not catch flight to Barcelona I am fling again tonight Toronto - Barcelona direct"
Cons: "It was 3am and my boarding pass wasn't bright enough on my phone. Instead of politely asking me to go print out my boarding pass at the check in stations, she yelled at me and told me I was holding up the line"
Pros: "We had requested special meals and they showed up fine on the reservation page o. AirCanad's web site. Then they changed the itinerary (again) with a minor improvement after we had upgraded to Business class. Somehow Air Canada deleted the special meals. Not just lost with the change but actively deleted according their rep. So no meals."
Cons: "Pressed the service bell mutiple over 30 minutes, no one came. Had to get out of my seat and walk to the back of the plane where I found all the attendants having a chat. Not even a sorry from them."
Cons: "Flight delays"
Pros: "Was able to get on an earlier flight which was really nice. was pretty packed but all in fairly comfortable. Food and entertainment options could improve."
Cons: "Got checked out from my flight from Montreal to NYC without reason. Had to get rebooked on later flight and arrived significantly later than planned. At NYC it took a while to realize that my bag was just waiting for me in the 'lost baggage' office of Air Canada"
Pros: "Good travel, pretty comfortable flight with Air Canada"
Cons: "Not the most amazing meal but well, not too bad for a plane meal."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice and friendly, they did a great job distributing the meals."
Cons: "No inflight computer to watch movies or track flight info."
Pros: "The price :)"
Cons: "Wasn't able to play the videos on my iPhone."
Pros: "The flight attendant was trying very hard to comfort passengers with very cheerful attitude. She was a savior of the flight."
Cons: "The way the ground crew handled the delay such as the way explaining (or lack of) the cause of delay to the passengers after the 5 hour of extra waiting."
Cons: "Customers was asked to give up carry on bags because flight was full well my bag never reached my destination"
Cons: "There was cold air blowing on our feet the entire flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Would be nice to get notified by email."
Pros: "Polite and friendly crew"
Cons: "Connection was a hectic with staff sending up and down to get our boarding passes. TSA had short lines but long wait and a lot of attitude."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful I was very glad that the Toronto boarding person recommended that i get on the flight as there were still empty seats -- there were no seats on the next flight that i had been switched to because my bag was on that one (supposedly)..."
Cons: "My bag was not on the next flight, so i had to get a hotel room for the nite, It was not on the 8/14/16 Sunday morning flight as stated their system; although the Dulles manager was very helpful, my bag was nowhere to be found. Someone drove to Dulles from Va Beach with my car keys -- i was called sunday nite that bag arrived.and would be fedex'd 2-day which put arrival at Wed 8/17/16. Still not here on 8/20/16. Sad and disappointed at how botched the return trip was."
Pros: "Crew was fairly friendly and a little hands off. Food was the best I've had flying abroad thus far. Seats were okay. Was in economy so I can't expect too much but I would love if there was a little more room especially for people stuck in middle seats. Seats were fairly comfortable. There was a lot more leg room than I have before which made the 10+hr flight better!"
Cons: "Boarding didn't go well for me as I almost missed my flight due to delays (but that didn't make me feel upset towards Air Canada, just bad circumstances that I had to be honest about). Crew was fairly friendly - a little hands off (which is good) but I wasn't wowed by them. Wasn't a lot of movie options. I realize you can't get a TON but a few more current movies would have been nice."
Pros: "The helpdesk was helpful when I got a hold of someone. The compensation was decent."
Cons: "I bought my round trip ticket from DC to Paris via Toronto since March 2016. But the flight back from Toronto to DC was overbooked and I got bumped off the flight. The agents were severely understaffed and had no information about the situation. Also, when I finally got the flight back to DC, my luggage was lost."
Cons: "It was cancelled."
Pros: "Flight attendant's were friendly amid the circumstances."
Cons: "Our first flight was cancelled 15 minutes before scheduled take-off. upon being bumped to another flight two hours later, that flight was delayed two hours after an issue during take-off. We remained on the plane while mechanic/engineering staff rectified the problem. We booked a flight to save time on driving. We would have arrived earlier had we drove. I understand things happen, but the airline eneds to take responsibility and show some good customer service. Aside from the pilot, no apology given, no reimbursement offered. Disappinting. Air Canada is now a last-resort option for a frequent flyer like myself."
Pros: "I really liked that there were free in-flight movies/tv and that everyone had their own screens so you could choose what to watch or you could have a map pulled up on the screen to show you how far you have travelled and how much further you have left to travel."
Cons: "There wasn't any food offered, no free peanuts/pretzels or food to buy. It wasn't the end of the world or anything but it seemed kind of odd to me. It's also a good thing that I had a movie option because if I didn't then my entire flight would have been filled with the sounds of some children's show that was blasting from a parents laptop and could be heard throughout the entire plane. I was really surprised that none of the flight attendants either asked them to turn it down to a reasonable volume or requested that they give the child headphones."
Cons: "Customs was disorganized and we were sent to the back of the line twice. The people working there didn't know what they were doing. Then our flight was delayed 3 separate times, first 2 hours, then another hour, then another hour. The seats on the plane were made for children. Luckily it was only a 1 1/2 hour flight."
Cons: "Terrible all around. About 10 total delays and one on flight delay totalling 7 hours. No information except lies was given the whole time."
Cons: "Lost bag"
Cons: "Everything from customer service to flight."
Cons: "7 hour delay combined with the most rude airline staff I have ever met."
Cons: "Flight delayed half hour, rush through all the steps, we are the first one get to the plane. But all the other people can not make it because we sit at near front and started the rush earlier. However, all of our checked luggage so can not make it. We are waiting for delivery on the next day. This type of short connection of international flight should not be arranged as we told you and AC when you told us the original booking was changed due to AC flight modification."
Cons: "Again, more delays."
Pros: "Air Canada front desk people were wonderful and helpful."
Pros: "This flight left without us due to delayed arrival on Air Canada flight from Seoul to Toronto. The positive was that it was one Air Canada flight I didn't get on."
Cons: "Due to lack of available options to get to ANY DC area airport before the evening the day after we were supposed to arrive, I accepted going to Philadelphia. That flight was also delayed. From there I rented a car and got home at 3 a.m. instead of 9:45 p.m., about when we would have gotten home on the original flight. If we had waited for the next available flight to the DC area, it would have arrived some time after 2:48 p.m. the day after we were supposed to arrive. I know this because I was told this was the fastest route to DC--before the same Air Canada agent then told me that it was no longer available. A dreadful experience."
Cons: "seats to close together very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Billy Bishop airport is awesome!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew didn't accommodate a rebooking despite availability .. Although original flight did board soon after."
Pros: "It was a quick flight."
Cons: "The departure postponed several times. The comfort in those parts of Toronto and Dulles airport which us Canada express is absent at all. There are no even seats enough for all passengers."
Pros: "My Flight was canceled without us getting any notification and causing major delays and headaches with NO offer for compensation to help e.g. with a $70 taxi we had to incur to get from DCA to IAD. Poor service"
Pros: "The crew got us out of Toronto very quickly"
Cons: "The incredibly small overhead bins"
Pros: "no entertainment or food. drink service got to back of the airplane about 5 minutes before beginning descent. Problems though were all before getting on the plane. Will not fly through Pearson again."
Cons: "After 12-hour flight from Tokyo, found flight to Dulles cancelled, with no adequate passenger assistance. Few staff to deal with issues and no familiarity with DC airports, IT support for the few staff available was poor. At re-booked flight gate, the area service desk unattended for an hour; finally found a helpful ground crew who said they are on break and got staff to service the desk, albeit grudgingly. Several flights delayed, in the horrible Gates F-84-99 area; confusion reigned supreme. Staff needs to understand that Dulles is way west of DC and BWI is way NE, so getting re-routed from Dulles to BWI is MAJOR change in ground transportation options and distances. Also need to update IT programming so staff can use it easily without long waits and calls for help. and some air conditioning in the F 84-90 gates area would be nice. Horrible situation--not enough seating, only service in whole area is one bagel shop."
Cons: "This plane was very late! I understand this happens a lot."
Cons: "first flight cancelled, second flight delayed so impossible to get the connection. Nobody called me about it, I had to go to ask."
