Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "12 hour delay to Toronto!!!"
Pros: "Bubbly flight personnel. Helpful front desk staff."
Cons: "Keep on going"
Cons: "The crew could have checked us in...we were 5 minutes late and had to book and pay for new tickets."
Cons: "Better information upfront about immigration in Canada and not a million unnecessary information. Highly unprofessional. Had lot better experience with other websites"
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "So many delays which missed our connection. Very costly. It’s the next day and I’m still not to Montreal!"
Cons: "Was delayed by 1.5 hrs and only received 1 alert about the initial 30 mins delay."
Cons: "I paid $48 for a carry on bag at the airport, I was never informed about this fee at any point during my purchase of the flight. This is half of what I paid for the ticket originally, completely unacceptable. I will never buy again on Kayak's website if I get sneaky, last minute fees like this."
Pros: "Smooth flying. welcoming crew."
Pros: "The complimentary drinks make the flight better."
Cons: "The agent spents too much time attempting to rearrange the line up rather than help guests check-in, causing a backlog. When issues were brought to them, they seemed disinterested in solving the problem - water was spilled in line and when brought to the agents attention she seemed annoyed."
Pros: "Fly was good."
Cons: "My luggage was broken and I had to search for an agent and had them called overhead by the information to declare it. Inconvenient +++"
Cons: "No pude tomar mi vuelo, lo perdí por que nunca me llegó el código de confirmación de ETA de Canadá, ¿puedo reagendar mi vuelo para una próxima fecha?"
Cons: "Stay in the airplane for a long time after landing!"
Pros: "It is a great experience. No delays, Complementary offers . Easiest checking out from the plane and the airport I’ve ever seen in my life"
Cons: "Carry on luggage place in the plane was too small. But they took and I easily got it back from the carrousel free of charge"
Cons: "My flight on 8/18 was canceled last minute without any explanation. There was no customer support what so ever. I couldn't book any flight for the same day or the day after. They automatically booked me for 8/20, two days after my scheduled trip. It didn't work for my schedule. I had to canceled it and they offered credit for future trips instead of refund. can't get anyone to answer the phone and there is no way to get questions answered online."
Cons: "Delays terrible longing rude flight attendants rude gate attendants"
Pros: "Good leg space, complimentary snacks soft drinks wine and beer."
Cons: "Service. Probably the only airline in North America to provide free alcohol on enconomy class."
Cons: "Free wine"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 3 hours and we only received an $8 food voucher. On my flight back to my original destination, the flight was overbooked and some has to volunteer to wait 9 hours for the next available"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving, arrived in time to make a connecting flight, and sat on the runway for 30 minutes because all gates were full. Literally pushed the connecting flight out to depart so the plane I was on could disembark. Completely rude, booked me for the next day and left me in downtown Toronto at 10 pm with no place to stay. Cost 398 dollars at the cheapest nearby hotel, very nice hotel, but wtf? Customer service wouldn't even help to tell me how to get back out of the departure area."
Cons: "Delays! Delays!"
Pros: "Porter Airlines did a great job overall."
Pros: "Porter fundamentally remade flying into downtown Toronto. Reasonably priced, with free drinks and above average snacks, their planes have no entertainment systems. Given that their flights are all relatively short, that last point is no problem."
Cons: "Boarding was slightly rush to your seats at IAD. Headphone removal seems unneeded."
Pros: "I flew many airlines in my life and Porter is one if the most human and attentive airline I experienced. Hopefully, will not grow to a greedy and bureaucratic corporations :)"
Cons: "Best crew flight attendant I have had in years on any airline"
Pros: "Nice clean aircraft. Flight attendants were helpful and not rude. They tried to help."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled with no explanation. No one called, the only reason I found out is because my phone has an app to monitor my flight. I was automatically rescheduled, also without anyone contacting me if this was okay and also without explanation. A few hours later that flight got cancelled as well. Again, no explanation. Again, no one contacted me. Again, the only reason I found out was because my phone told me. Again, I got rescheduled without anyone contacting me if this flight is in any way okay, or acceptable for me. This time around it wasn't. I tried contacting the airline, where no one ever picked up. I waited more than an hour on hold. Eventually I solved my own problem on the site, when someone rescheduled an earlier flight and I took the spot. Lucky me. As it turned out, I frequent the Toronto Islands area and someone there told me why my flights were cancelled: a dense fog. A pretty good reason. This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, of course, there is a weather station right next to the airport and forecasts are readily available. Porter Airlines is unreachable, unreliable and disorganized: they had plenty of opportunities to assess and address the situation, contact me, and even plan for an alternative transportation for me. None of this happened."
Cons: "On the first leg Flight 720: 1. A Black man sitting behind me was challenged (and humiliated) by a Porter agent who came on the plane before leaving the gate, that he was sitting in the wrong seat. It turns out the agent was looking at his boarding pass for the NEXT next connection flight. That delayed the take off by 10 minutes. 2. Then while taxing away from the gate for takeoff, another Black man on the same flight whose mother tongue is not English nor French, did not understand that he had to remove his earbuds for the takeoff. He said he was confused by the instructions, so the the pilot decided he was "non-compliant" and returned the plane to the gate to have him removed from the flight, bring police on the plane. I am sure he lost a lot of money and will have future difficulty flying in North America. That delayed our flight another 40 minutes, and many of us missed our connecting flights in Toronto. I just have two wonder if a white passenger would have been given the benefit of the doubt."
Pros: "Porter Airline was amazing!! They use glasses instead of plastic cups! Nice, cheap, on time, and free wine!"
Pros: "Fast check in and customs lines in both airports"
Cons: "The chips are pretty bland. I appreciate the free refreshments, but would like a bit of choice"
Pros: "Kind flight attendants, everything went very smoothly"
Cons: "The toilet could be cleaner. The seats were also a bit dirty. I think the plane hadn’t been cleaned well at Dulles. Which is a shame because the flight, its timing and the service offered were all excellent."
Pros: "Unable to fly to Toronto. For anyone that does not have a Canadian passport, an electronic Travel Authorization needs to be completed when flying to Canada. As I was not aware of this form that needed to be completed prior to my travel I was not able to take the plane."
Cons: "I wished I had that information ahead."
Cons: "Massive delays!!"
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."
Cons: "Small airport no amenities."
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: "On the whole the experience was good ."
Cons: "Took Too long at the check in counter."
Pros: "The snacks and quick boarding was good. Flight attendants were okay."
Cons: "No kiosks to check in. You have to check in at the counter, but if you check in early online you still have to check in at the gate. They have all these policies about carry on bags, but their plans are too small to even carry them on. All rolling bags still have to go under the plane. My seat was dirty and worn out."
Pros: "Loved everything"
Pros: "Not tons."
Cons: "Very late."
Cons: "Porter was very poor at managing our expectations and ultimately providing a quality service. Our flight was deleted several times before it was finally cancelled and we had to take a much much later flight. 3:50pm ended up 9:40pm, taking into consideration the need to be at the airport 2 hours before our flight because it was trans-border. He reason was also absolutely unacceptable - weather. Really? Where? It was great in Dulles Airport Washington DC and fine at Billy Bishop Airpot in Toronto. No offer of anything. No we weren't expecting something. But an offer would have been awesome. Not our first Rodeo."
Pros: "The convenience of flying to downtown Toronto is unbeatable. Plus, it was very easy to board and un-board such a small, cozy plane. I appreciated the generous carry-on policy and the affordable price."
Cons: "I wish there were AC outlets to charge devices. My biggest complaint however is that pens were not provided to fill out the Canadian customs declarations forms passed out on the flight, forcing passengers to find people to borrow pens from. An introvert's nightmare."
Pros: "Flights delayed and no proper update provided."
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival, no surprises."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants. Snacks on the plane"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Plane small and a little cramped. Overhead bin small, not enough space to place carry-on. Plane did not feel clean. Inside interior seemed old."
Pros: "Both the flights Landing Takeoffs were soo perfect,did not feel it took off and landing at the short runways were soo perfect. The crew meaning the air hostesses were soo hospitable with their great smiles on their faces to greet us, help us (especially me)being a handicapped.while serving don't know how to write how they took care, especially getting me to the wheel chair and the staff who took me in wheel chair to the next flight sevices were all 5 star and plus. I would for sure ravel with PORTOR AIRLINES if they go to the destinations I am going. Oh forgot the hospitality at the Toronto Airport was un believeable. Thanks to everyone even the owners of Portor Airlines."
Pros: "Free wine and free drinks. Cheap price I guess. Bed connecting flight ruined it for me though."
Cons: "The flight to Toronto was grounded for 1 hour but the seats were comfortable so I didn't mind. However the connecting flight to Montreal was cancelled and I had to stay the night in Toronto. No refunds. No money for hotel. Only a new booking pass was issued for the morning."
Pros: "Great crew, prompt take-off and boarding / de-planing"
Cons: "Seats were dated and uncomfortable"
Cons: "air canadas service, they should reimburse my accomodation expenses because of their poor time management."
Pros: "The seat was fine for economy"
Cons: "You should offer free wifi! Air Canada should lead the way and be above the rest!"
Cons: "AC would always delay"
Pros: "In-flight crew"
Cons: "Our luggage was trashed. Brand new luggage was broken with holes in the side and wheels missing. This was not cheap luggage this was 10 year warranty luggage but how do you collect on a warranty when you’re in a foreign country? So had to buy new luggage for the trip home. We’ll see if it survives their lame baggage handling."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 33hrs and no accommodations were provided to us; no vouchers nothing! They didn’t even have a rep at their desk at the airport to answer any questions; just a sign with a number to call."
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Seats were too tight. Entertainment was mediocre"
Cons: "Flight left two hours late and provided difficulty in Toronto"
Pros: "I like the courteous crew members, very cordial & attentive."
Cons: "The long wait on the aircraft after all passengers and crew were on board waiting for the oxygen tank to arrive."
Pros: "Excellent value for Economy flight"
Pros: "Chairs and the space was very good."
Cons: "Crew and the food was very poor. This is the only long international flight 10 hours that served a night grate dinner and the crews got disappeared the rest of the flight and no breakfast."
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour ."
Pros: "I like the seats which were only 2 instead of 3 seats."
Cons: "- Felt like I was bothering the air stewardess when I asked for anything - Flight was delayed by 50 minutes. - Food was extremely bland and below par."
Cons: "Flight was about an hour late due to crew problems."
Pros: "Flight crew were friendly"
Cons: "Ground staff were terrible and the ground crew mysteriously disappeared. Air conditioning was not working on the flight while it was on the ground. All passengers sweating for an hour on the tarmac. Flight arrived 2.5 hrs late resulting in a missed connection."
Pros: "The snack selection is excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and nice, plane was new and in a very good condition. Flight was not fully booked so we could move around and take even 4 seats to lay down and fly comfortably."
Cons: "Boarding was over an hour later than it supposed to be. Toronto always has some " surprises" for passengers. Food could be better."
Pros: "service, friendly attendants, amenities"
Cons: "Seats are so close together. No room. No tvs."
Pros: "My onward journey was great. Return was not so. As a gold member I would have appreciated an upgrade. In a long flight I would have appreciated more water served regularly."
Cons: "Same as above. Flight delayed by 45 minutes. No explanation given as to why... no inclement weather or other issues that day."
Pros: "I think cost me without needing to go back and forth"
Cons: "Four hours of delays."
Pros: "The flight went well and the crew on the plane were very pleasant."
Cons: "The manager named Jennifer at Palm beach airport was extremely rude. When her attitude was pointed out, she threatened to remove us (including a toddler) from the flight. She basically said "I'm the manager I can do what I want". Extremely unprofessional and a very unpleasant situation."
Pros: "Was too short of a deadline needs to be 90 min. You need to be excused/allowed if you pay for and check in a head of time... Also carry on size is small."
Cons: "The checked bag deadline"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were very good."
Cons: "Air Canada Legs were excellent, but Rouge Sucks!"
Pros: "There was more room on this plane. Also an agent was waiting at the gate with hotel and meal vouchers when we landed in Vancouver. The hotel we stayed in was very nice."
Pros: "Good service, nice seat"
Cons: "On both outbound and inbound trips (connecting with international flights) the flight was late. Both times the door was closed and then they informed us of the delay. I understand that smaller planes often get bumped, but on the outbound leg, a 20 minute delay on the tarmac and then not allowing us to deplane for another 15 minutes meant I missed the connecting flight."
Pros: "boarding was fast and simple"
Cons: "Food was mediocre Entertainment movies outdated"
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: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The gate changed 4 times and there was confusion at final boarding. The Toronto airport TSA agents have absolutely no manners and need to be retrained or fired. Traveling has become very stressful and try make it worse. There was a Hispanic girl, heavy set with curly hair yelling at us to approach the scanners. I talked to her asking her to be gentle with us because we'd just flown for 7 hours and are suffering from time zone changes. Another yelled at my seatmate about his travel size after shave. She was a black Caribbean. She snapped at me about the importance of security and that he was rude for saying he didn't care that she'd throw his stuff away. I told her that he said he didn't care because he's tired and quite frankly, a trail sized aftershave that she doesn't approve actually doesn't matter and is nothing for her to get worked up about. Her colleagues were all staring at her as she started throwing her weight around and making unprofessional nonverbal noises. Then there the room where you weight for your name on the screen to appear if your number is 1 or 2. The people in there are extremely gruff. There was only one Hispanic woman who took my slip of paper that had my pic who said please and thank you. Then when you go to customs to get your passport signed, the guy at counter 10 starts arguing with me for no reason. I put 1 family member on the customs form. He asked if anyone is traveling with me. I said no. He clarified that one should mean an additional person and not just me traveling. I said it wasn't clear and I didn't know. But he decided to get argumentative with me about it until I said ok and walked away. Your TSA process is a nightmare. I did not experience that at Heathrow, Vienna, Or Tel Aviv (all places that have recently experienced terrorism). I didn't even experience it in my arrival town Denver. Toronto TSA is very very poor."
Pros: "Flight attends were very attentive to all passengers. I especially liked that they kept everyone hydrated by offering drinks every couple of hours."
Pros: "The pale was nicer than my flight out. The food was very good vegetarian fare."
Cons: "The seats are just too narrow! My shoulders were practically grinding into the person's next to me."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible."
Pros: "The flight from DC to Toronto was late around four hours and after we got on the plane We went back and we were waiting at the airport while get more fuel and which repaired the fault on the plane. so I was late for my next flight to FrankfurtSo I was put on a flight to Frankfurt with a connection in Lisbon.In the end, my suitcase was lost and I got it only two days later. Never I will no longer use AirCanada small planes !"
Cons: "Cancelled flight and didn't even tell me a reason. They couldn't even make reservation for hotel. Hotel sent me back to airport because i didn't have voucher which AIr Canada guys said they can't make one? Everything didn't make sense. And they told me not to come again. They took like... whole day to book another flight. And i had hard time understanding what they were saying."
Pros: "On the whole it was a pleasant experience despite the flight being late."
Cons: "I thought that the flight being delayed by almost 2 hours was terrible. That should not have happened."
Pros: "Nothing - they were immature, unprofessional, nervous, unhelpful, and visibly shaken by relatively side problems."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours but not technically cancelled, which the ground crew blamed upon the flight crew and vice versa. The failure to cancel caused us to be unable to rebook, and subsequent avoidable delays arising from Air Canada's ineptitude caused us to be two,days late for arrival. The problem was solvable with some simple rebooking, but the ground,crew failed to assist, then the flight crew, when we finally left five hours late, was Impersonable, unhelpful, uninformed, and utterly unprepared. It was a terrible, second rate, poor quality experience and I would not recommend Air Canada to anyone. Your airline needs serious training in Professionalism and responsiveness."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "There was no entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating and the flight itself was great"
Cons: "We had a 2 hour delay and almost missed our connection"
Cons: "The movies selection is not good"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, and the flight procedures were very efficient."
Cons: "I have no criticisms to offer."
Cons: "Lost our bag"
Pros: "Attendants were polite. Flying get was smooth. Facilities were clean."
Cons: "The baggage check-in line was ambiguous and took 1 hour. No one to direct traffic, so people were cutting in line and were frustrated."
Pros: "We had a pretty uneventful flight from Tampa to Toronto using Air Canada. That is a good thing. The airline offers complementary juices and drinks of the nonalcoholic variety. No complaints."
Cons: "I was not able to board this flight. And it was such a disappointment and a shocking first for me. I reached the airport and on being checked at the counter, I was told that I cannot board because I don't have a Canadian visa. It was shocking to learn that I needed visa for a 1.5 hour layover. The website should give a prompt or should share the requirements. And all my ticket money got wasted."
Pros: "The ground crew were always nice and friendly. They worked hard to deal with delayed flight, missed connection, and tight alternate connection. Flight crew were also friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Four-hour flight delay released in one hour increments without announcement -gate displayed "on time departure" for the duration of the delay. Our hassles were compensated with meager meal vouchers given too late, There was no pre-boarding on our flight (just one big cattle call) which made boarding with child and gear extra awkward,"
Cons: "No on board entertainment. Even with the Air Canada app for the phone, the choices were so little. Very long flight without any movies to watch. Will not book with them again."
