Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Snacks and drinks on the plane are nice. Baggage was already on the belt at Billy Bishop. In general a lot less queuing and waiting than YYZ."
Cons: "New luggage rates make Porter an unattractive option compared to other competitors on short haul. Seats need to be cleaned more often, the surface was sticky."
Cons: "Wasn’t warned on website about applying for ETA. Airline didn’t accommodate me in this situation and proceed to charge me $100 to change my flight."
Pros: "Convenient, good service, free alcohol and snacks"
Pros: "Once our plane finally got there the crew and people working the desk were super efficient and concentrated on getting us on our way ASAP."
Cons: "We were 6 hours delayed. The weather was bad so it wasn’t anyone’s fault. It just sucked."
Cons: "b/c i booked (at the recommendation of kayak), my flight was cancelled and i was refunded by airline. My return trip was not returned to me."
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!"
Cons: "Flight took off 30 min late"
Pros: "Efficient, punctual, polite and reliable"
Pros: "Efficient, punctual, polite and reliable"
Pros: "The service is very good. In flight snacks and drinks are complimentary."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment."

Pros: "Courteous, professional, friendly crew. Great service."
Pros: "Kind flight attendants, everything went very smoothly"
Pros: "Loved the Terra chips. Also the price!"
Cons: "Why did I have to take my headphones off during takeoff and descent? No other airline I’ve ridden has had that policy."
Pros: "Lounge Wine"
Pros: "Once they were up and running, Porter was a great airline. Flight was short so i didn't expect anything fancy on the food menu anyway"
Cons: "My flight got delayed at least 5 times. Not a great first experience. Had an eerie likeliness of Spirit, which we all know is just not a real airline. not sure if I would fly again if that is the general perception of Porter airlines. I could care less about comfort as long as I get to where I am going on time, which I did not."
Pros: "I like everything this airline has to offer. I'm 5'11" and the seat spacing provided enough leg room for comfort. The snacks were generously provided as well as the drinks. Flight attendants were courteous and professional. Complementary cocktails were aN added bonus. The flight was very short (40mins) so no entertainment which is why I ranked it low/NA. Waiting area between layover was very nice as well. I would definitely patronize this airline again."
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival, no surprises."
Cons: "Porter lost my baggage despite such a short and easy flight for them to track. Let's see how long they take to get the luggage back to me in what condition"
Pros: "On time Bags received promptly"
Cons: "Baggage I checked in one bag only I did it online and was charged 31dollars US why? I live, in hk and was in Canada for flight and flight check in. Why not charged me the promised 25 dollars why us and why so high. My way to Quebec was 25 dollars Canadian ?"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "We had to pay for a different flight, unless we waited until the next day. Which was impossible for us. So that sucked."
Pros: "Very friendly staff Free drinks (wine, beer, vodka coolers) in flight Easy small airport terminal at Billy Bishop Airport Very fast through immigration and customs"
Cons: "Policy that cannot standby got earlier flight - especially if later flight is already listed as delayed This is to force paying $150 fee, not customer friendly."
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: "Entertainment n/a hence the one star. My flight was surprisingly affordable and I felt like I was being treated well because porter serves their cold beverages in these mini glasses made of glass (not plastic cups) with 'porter' written on them. I also got a complimentary snack on this 1.5h flight vs my parents who took a different 5h flight with AC and they got no complimentary snacks. It's the little things that make a difference these days. I also loved the Billy Bishop airport. We landed around sunset so the view of the skyline was beautiful and we were right at the water."
Pros: "The crew were very good"
Cons: "The Duty Free not much choice of alcohols"
Pros: "Pleasant friendly staff, understanding to someone's needs with a small infant."
Cons: "No preboarding. They call preboarding passengers only to call regular passengers two minutes after, not even allowing someone with special needs or children to even be inside the gate before they make the next groups call. It would be helpful to allow someone with a kid or special needs to be atleast boarded otherwise the point of preboarding is pointless. Just being allowed to be in line first doesn't help someone lugging a child and stroller that needs to be gate checked before boarding."
Pros: "finally arriving...eight hours late"
Cons: "It wasn't just the hour and a half delay from the first flight or sitting on the plane an extra hour after boarding. Nor was it the over 3 hour delay of the second flight (itself two hours after the initial connection due to the first leg being late and then the initial second leg being cancelled). Flight attendants on the first porter flight were not simply talking to passengers. They were talking down to passengers. Customer service reps in Toronto, while understandably dealing with many complaints, thought a roll of the eyes would go unnoticed. It didn't, and the entire experience was unacceptable. So you know, the dinner I flew out for to celebrate one of my best friends wedding, I completely missed. Thanks Porter and Kayak."
Pros: "Glassware and snacks provided"
Cons: "Significant delays and lack of clear communication by staff"
Pros: "The staff and service are always so good. Love the lounge and not having to navigate an airport for a stopover. All airlines should do it like this!!"
Pros: "Great snacks and selection of drinks including with and beer for free which is rare flying in North America. Comfortable seats, easy check in, pleasant staff."
Cons: "At checkin, the agent made me repack my bag so it would fit in the measurement checker. This was a standard Samsonite carry-on luggage. This was very humiliating."
Pros: "Very friendly"
Pros: "Great help locating a motel. I"
Cons: "No compensation for a canceled flight. Forced to leave the airport as it shuts down for the night, so we had to book a room."
Cons: "The service was horrible. I have been reaching out to the desk people every 30 min to understand what's the situation and if I will be able to catch my flight from Toronto to Montreal. The lady promised that we will make it and that all the flights were delayed anyway. I explained to her it's better for me to stay I. Chicago and just be on the earliest flight to Montreal following day, again she promised we will make it. We were 9 people that heard that. Once we made it to Toronto, no communication was made to tell us if we were going to catch the flight then they hold us on the plane for 10-15 min being told can't mixe us with another domestic flight. Once we made it to the connection we were told we missed it and that they book is on the SATURDAY morning flight... This was Thursday night. Nothing else, not even a hotel was paid. I had to buy another to Montreal because of plan I had on Saturday afternoon.... tHiS WAS THE Crapiest and worst service I had. Can get a hotel, or even a flight paid until Saturday this is absolutely not acceptable, and the people at the desk were not understanding, rude and not helpful until we talked with them for an hour We were also that because of weather nothing was going to be better then us flighting Saturday"
Pros: "We actually go snacks and drinks for free for a one hour flight !!"
Cons: "The airline has no app that u can check-in or have a bar code u can scan"
Pros: "Once boarded on the aircraft, the crew was did an excellent job of keeping the passengers updated on delays and thankfully we were permitted to exit the plane till delays were cleared up."
Cons: "Cancelled flight as well as very long delay which resulted in missed connection..understood though that weather was a major factor.. Waiting area in terminal leaves alot to be desired"
Pros: "Quick, efficient service"
Cons: "Check-in clerks made us work moving 2 kilograms from one carry-on bag to another, accepted both bags at the end anyway, useless formality."
Pros: "Always enjoy flying Porter. Very pleasant staff. Flight attendants were friendly."
Pros: "Only 20 +/- passengers. Cute plane. Nice attendants. Adorable Toronto airport."
Cons: "Easy flight except last 20 minutes. Horrible ear pressure. I don't think that can be helped."
Pros: "The staff and crew were very kind!"
Cons: "Every single flight I took with Porter this trip was delayed for minimum one hour. This one was delayed so much I missed my connection in Toronto."
Pros: "Everything was very pleasant"
Cons: "4 hour delay no information"
Cons: "We were not informed our flight had been cancelled"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable as I had the exit row"
Cons: "Flight was late by an hour taking off from DXB."
Cons: "Food could be improved by improving preperation"
Cons: "The entertainment system was lagging and the seating was tight , I got to be close and bond with my 70 year old neighbor"
Cons: "The ticket I purposed did not allow for carry on / which was not clear on my confirmation when purchasing the ticket"
Cons: "One of my checked baggage was lost."
Cons: "Toilets were dirty and not enough toilet papers"
Pros: "Crew were exceptionally good, friendly and helpful. Great entertainment system."
Cons: "The food is terrible, overcooked watery beefless beef dishes. Better ti brng your own food."
Pros: "In flight attendance was excellent and we were nearly overfed with plenty of drinks, snacks and meals. It was nice to see both young and elderly ladies as air hostess. This is a strong statement in non discrimination on Account of age in employment. To see a red Indian lady among them was very refreshing."
Cons: "Dimming of the windows was not user friendly and we had to put up with bright reflected lights from clouds. On ground both in Calgary and Vancouver the wheel chair attendance was not at the same level as in Frankfurt where it had been given with paramedic competence."
Pros: "Every thing expert the food"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Service was impeccable. In flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was nothing special"
Cons: "Put on Turkish air landed 12 hrs late lggage still missing"
Pros: "Vegetarian food needs lots of improvement"
Pros: "While I've ranked the crew as poor, that isn't a reflection of the entire crew. The flight crew and check-in team were fine, the boarding I have as mediocre due to delay, but I don't put that on the staff."
Cons: "My issues are two part: 1 - I wasn't informed that I was required to retrieve my luggage from the carousel on this flight from George Town to Toronto. I thought perhaps I missed something, however, the three other couples that were in the same predicament I was weren't aware either. This caused a massive headache, the instructions were superbly poor on how to retrieve the luggage, and the process was completely a waste of time. We had to talk with three different people, the person that took us back to the carousel showed no urgency despite us all explaining that we were on a short layover, and might miss our next flight, and even though we had our passes to get through customs, we were made to wait in line to have our baggage inspected. A completely broken process that could've been avoided with a friendly reminder at check-in. 2 - Once I was able to retrieve my luggage I picked it up off the carousel only to find the handle on one piece of luggage had been ripped off, and the plastic lining on the other bag was destroyed. Admittedly I find this to be no surprise after seeing how mine and everyone else's luggage was handled so poorly upon being loaded into the cargo. I saw my luggage being tossed 3-5 feet into the cargo area - literally picked up, and with complete disregard flung like it was a trash bag being thrown into the dumpster. Since I didn't have time to discuss this with any staff due to my prior issue and being unable to find a representative once I landed back in Vancouver, I called the next day to discuss this over the phone, but the representative explained that I was only able to make a complaint in-person at the time of baggage retrieval. The person was absolutely useless and unwilling to help. This was by far the worst treatment I've had at any time in my life while flying any airline. The trip to George Town was with American Airlines, and even though it was longer, and a tad bit more expensive, the service I had with them was stellar by comparison to my experience with AirCanada. Going forward I will only be using AC when there are absolutely no other options."
Pros: "I am 6ft 1 / 185cm and the leg room was OK for an economy flight. Food was OK for airplane food. Staff were very friendly. Overall very happy."
Cons: "Ran out of food.."
Pros: "Clean, friendly crew remembered how we had our tea/coffee from the earlier service"
Cons: "Economy is never very comfortable but was better than a lot of other airlines"
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Seats were too tight. Entertainment was mediocre"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to check in online and therefore wasn’t able to update with my dietary requirements which meant I couldn’t really eat anything that was given. I was told at the airport that it needs to be submitted 24 hrs before the flight and there was nothing they could do. Really unfair and not on."
Pros: "great service from start to finish would use again"
Pros: "Ease of service and efficiency."
Cons: "no entertainment"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Long walk to connecting flight. Buggy didn’t turn up"
Pros: "Ease of boarding - no long queues. Offer to put hand luggage in the hold with no charge."
Pros: "Staff all friendly and helpful, both at desk and in plane. Seats were pretty comfortable with sufficient leg room (I am tall), but if you are a wide person (or next to one) it would have been pretty cramped. Neither of my flights (to Newfoundland) were full so we all had a bit of extra space. Food was adequate but could be improved with fruit instead of dessert."
Pros: "Friendly crew, modern aircraft"
Pros: "Pretty standard flight...nice crew, free drink, left and arrived on time for the most part. Liked that I could check in early to arrange a seat."
Cons: "The seats could have been more comfortable. Had a couple knees in my back."
Cons: "I didn't travel with children, but if I had done they would have needed entertaining. The crew offered iPads (to rent) for the entertainment of children and adults alike. Why can these not just be given to passengers, better still BRING BACK SCREENS IN SEATBACKS!!!"
Pros: "Very comfortable and clean aircraft. Friendly crew. Seats at the front of Economy had excellent legroom. Helpful flight announcements from the captain."
Cons: "Air Canada has only one gate at Houston, which appears to be in constant use, at least in the early afternoon. If one flight is delayed in departure, it causes a backup with other flights."
Pros: "Liked everything about this new class of service on Air Canada. Seat was comfortable with good recline that didn't interfere with fellow passengers. Food was excellent, entertainment system was well stocked, flight attendants were friendly and high energy. Even got to use lounge and fast-track security lane at Heathrow."
Cons: "Zero complaints."
Cons: "Baggage hasn't arrived after 45 minutes"
Cons: "Delayed for more than two hours on both the trips to and from Canada. This is a common thing with Air Canada i heard. Flights always get delayed."
Pros: "It was convenient from our local airport."
Cons: "Tried to sell seat selection for $11 each way per person. Really awful policy for a 38 minute flight in a small plane. Don't get caught on that one."
Pros: "Flight from Windsor to Toronto wa good. The connecting flight was cancelled and the next flights was over booked so we had to over night in Toronto. Then get up at 530 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."
Cons: "Our connecting flight from Toronto to Thunder Bay was cancelled. 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: "Flight was good. Left a bit late but made up time"
Cons: "Security took nearly an hour to get through even though it didn't look very busy."
Pros: "Great cabin crew - really friendly and helpful to passengers. Good selection of drinks. AMS-YYZ-YQG All nice enough - good leg room and nice to have a 2-4-2 seating configuration YQG-YYZ-LHR Nice to be on a 787."
Cons: "Food was bland, but as expected on a transatlantic route. Good selection of drinks. One of the suitcases missed the flight, but was promptly delivered the following day. It would have been nice if this could have been notified earlier, rather than having to wait for all passenger's luggage to be delivered before realising that our's was not there."
Pros: "Very helpful crew and staff assisting with golf buggy ride"
Pros: "Poor airline, always delayed, dreadful and unfriendly customer service. The only reason I flew with them this short trip was due to price"
Cons: "A three and a half hour flight with a fruit juice and not even a pack of peanuts . Air Canada that was pathetic !"
Pros: "screen and interface"
Cons: "back of seat/head rest uncomfortable, average food in very small quantities films not refreshed fast enough, same in and out flights"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Air Canada pricing is same as other non budget airlines like British airways, Lufthansa but service is on par with budget airlines like Ryan Air. I'm amazed how they get away with it."
Pros: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."
Pros: "Staff and food"
Cons: "We lost one of our bags"
Pros: "Great service, friendly staff, fuss-free boarding, good entertainment selection."
Cons: "Plane could have been slightly cleaner (eg replace old, ratty in-flight magazines). Food was reasonable but a bit bland."
Cons: "Hair in my breakfast and they wouldn't give me another meal also by the time they reached me all the options but the overlooked egg was available they didn't explain just dumped the meal on my tray table and when I asked for the other option was told straight out no... I've flown on many airlines and that was by far the most foul meals I've ever had budget airlines do better won't fly ac anytime again.... My original flight was delayed 5 hours to connect so I was transferred to another flight and my bags didn't make it so I went 4 days without luggage also"
Pros: "Flight was delayed several hours with no compensation given"
Pros: "On such a small plane I am just glad I land in one piece and that we do not hit turbulence. The Windsor airport is very pleasant to deal with as an alternative to leaving from Detroit Metro. I will choose to do this when flights are available."
Cons: "The departure time for the flight was 6:00am and there was no one in the check in counter until 4:15am. There was a long queue for the check in. Not a pleasant waiting time for the check in"
Pros: "Helpful and friendly crew. Good food. Smooth flight."
Cons: "No seatback screens. Hire charge for iPads to access entertainment. Can use own iPad but need Air Canada app to make full use of entertainment (which would have been useful information to communicate BEFORE the flight, since there is no way to download app once on board!)."
Pros: "Crew was nice and very helpful.. Nice selection of movies.."
Cons: "Food could be improved.. no flavor and it looked over cooked.. Drinking cups could be switched to paper cups.. or recycled one's.. Packaging and overall rubbish could also be reduced. 777 seats were to narrow.. bigger seats are a must for such long flights. Internet access could be free.. with a limit of course.."
