Airline reviews

Pros: "Convenient! Love flying to Toronto on Porter. Nice glassware for drinks. Unique feel. Will definitely fly again!"

Pros: "Cheap price of the airline ticket."
Cons: "I was booked where someone was already sitting. It was difficult because I was with my two young children. And someone else was booked in my child's seat also."

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."

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."

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."

Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours and I received no notification of this delay. I checked in on the Porter website and provided my email and phone number to notify me of any chances. I took a $100 taxi ride as opposed to the slower $15 train ride thinking the flight was on time. Absolutely not impressed"

Pros: "When flying Porter, not only do you receive leather seating"
Cons: "The passenger beside me was flatulating during the entire flight. It smelled of old meats and gruyère cheese"

Pros: "Cheaper cost Nice staff"
Cons: "Discomfort Small plane"

Cons: "Original flight cancelled. Missed connection in Toronto. Rebooked flight was delayed departing Ottawa. Layover of 2 hours in Toronto. Flight to Windsor delayed as arrival from Montreal was late. 7:30 pm departure now delayed to 8:15 pm departure. I could have drived Ottawa to Windsor in same amount of time. Total waste of money! Still waiting at lounge in Billy Bishop Airport as I write this. And the weather was perfect today! What’s going on?"

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: "City Center airport and staff at Porter was great"
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed without explanation or rescheduling. Each "new" time had already passed when it was set, e.g., "The new departure time is noon" when it was already 12:15."

Cons: "There is only 1 lavatory on the plane and early in the flight they had to shut it down! Luckily there were no incidents but how can you not have a working lavatory?! What would they do if someone really had to go?"

Pros: "Convenient, good service, free alcohol and snacks"

Pros: "Flight in was fine."
Cons: "I will avoid Porter from now on. There was a small storm earlier in the day in Boston which pushed back all Porter flights. The flight from Boston to Ottawa was delayed 5-6 times, at one point they were planning to re-route us to Hamilton and put us on a bus to Toronto...! Since the Porter planes are so small they are the first to get bumped. They kept us waiting for 7 hours at the airport rescheduling and delaying our flight until it was finally cancelled. They gave us a $15 meal voucher.. that's it! No offer of accomodations or any assistance whatsoever. I was rebooked for 2 days later!! This is the second time I have had this exact scenario with Porter.. so it is not a chance happening."

Pros: "Efficient, punctual, polite and reliable"

Pros: "They have much better in flight service"
Cons: "Every flight I saw by porter was delayed including mine."

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "In combination of the friendly Porter crew and the best value for the money, Porter really is the best way to get from one major, fast-paced city to another fast-paced metropolitan area!"

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: "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: "Courteous, professional, friendly crew. Great service."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Porter Airline was amazing!! They use glasses instead of plastic cups! Nice, cheap, on time, and free wine!"

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: "flight delayed, connection not possible, over 1 h waiting on phone to rebook! compensation minimal"

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: "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: "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 flught was great. Very impressed by real glass glasses. The flight attendants were wonderful"
Cons: "Everything was great."

Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "very nice crew, comfortable seats"

Pros: "Didn't like it I don't"

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: "Excellent customer service, Very comfortable flight and warm welcoming crew"

Cons: "Your pricing now is almost not distinguishable from AC's"

Pros: "Flight left 30 min late but crew was very apologétic and they made up some time, flight was great!"

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: "I sat in a seat that wasn’t my assigned seat, and no one said anything. It was awesome!"

Pros: "The few were friendly."
Cons: "The food selection was poor."

Cons: "Not enough movie options"

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."

Cons: "Late. Wifi on the aircraft but didn’t work. Inflation GHY service suspended due to reported turbulence."

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."

Cons: "Air Canada is just worse and worse"

Pros: "They allowed us to make an earlier connection without any fee. That was very kind. Thank you."

Pros: "The cree"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Poor aircraft, uncomfortable seats, not recommended."

Pros: "Short flight so can't say much. Lol"

Pros: "Arrived on time"

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: "I'll like it when i board."
Cons: "The fact i haven't boarded yet."

Pros: "Pretty routine"
Cons: "Long delay, but weather dictated this."

Cons: "Seats are always too close to the ones in front , crushing knees."

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: "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: "I think cost me without needing to go back and forth"

Cons: "N/c"

Pros: "On time Excellent take off and landing Good service"

Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"

Cons: "They lost our checked baggage. Luckily we did get them back within 20 hours."

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: "Everything on time"
Cons: "Nothing"

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."

Cons: "AC was helpful arranging a delivery of the delayed luggage. But carrier was further delayed from the scheduled delivery time."

Pros: "Airbus 380"

Pros: "Same as anove"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Service was poor. Attitude was less than enthusiastic."

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: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."

Cons: "No good movies or music"

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)."

Cons: "There was no access to movies."

Pros: "as above"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Space and meals"
Cons: "Entainment"

Pros: "Comfortable and large plane with tvs"

Pros: "Everything but the size of the in-flight seats"
Cons: "Seats way too small and uncomfortable."

Pros: "On the plus side, the service was great."
Cons: "There is just not enough space in the seats! I am not a tiny person and my trip was not helped by the fact that the seats are too narrow to comfortably seat people larger than a size 10!"

Pros: "The plane was fairly modern and the seating had more leg room than many other economy flights I have taken. The flight attendants were friendly and courteous. All-in-all a very good flight. I was especially appreciative of the concessions made for skiers when it came to luggage. Also, the luggage fees were very reasonable."
Cons: "I was a bit surprised that no snacks were offered free of charge. I can understand that meals are not included in economy, but nuts, cookies or some pretzels would be nice."
