Flight delayed until next day due to storms. Had to spend night in hotel in Newark AT OUR OWN expense.
Great service, decent price. Most convenient airline if you’re located downtown Toronto!
The crew on Porter is always fantastic! However, our plane just did not show up for 2 hours and we were not offered any explanation or compensation. After this delay, we then had to wait for Porter in Toronto to come up with a landing plan, creating further delays and this plan didn't even work because once we got to Toronto we had to circle the airport until we could land because there was another plane on the runway. I know that in travel unexpected things can happen, but I think this could have been handled in a more professional way. Staff on the plane, and in the Island airport were fantastic!
Porter is always amazing. I feel like a VIP when I fly with you!
It’s expensive for the service.
Turbulence meant no beer/beverages on the way to DC. That's fine - but they could have refunded the money they saved from not serving it to passengers instead of just pocketing it.
No entertainment on a short flight…. Boston to Toronto
No issues with Porter Airlines, however STOP SELLING ANY VIA JUSTFLY.COM THEY ARE SCAMMING PEOPLE!
Flight delays both going and return flights
Excellent behavior of pilot and crew Very good take off landing On time schedule Recommendation: Better to avoid charges on check in luggage
Very smooth take off and landing Excellent behavior of crew and pilots
Friendly, courteous and professional staff. Clean planes.
Communication at the gate was adequate. Boarding was orderly. Seats are decent, with a reasonable amount of leg room. Flight was only 1.5 hours, so only a modest snack service (short bread cookie or small bag of chips) and a drink (coffee, tea, soda, cup of beer or wine). Exiting the plane was also orderly. Overall the flight was fine and the price reasonable.
Flight was supposed to be at 3 didn’t fly out until 6:30
Pros: Nice lounge. Fast boarding & disembarkment
Cons: There is a Covid-19 outbreak and this airline refused to change my flight. They are a disgrace.
Cons: Return checking by Porter staff
Pros: Originally: a low fare
Cons: Flight oversold, travelers bumped. Flight delayed while they kicked people off the flight.
Pros: Cheap fares but may not be worth it
Cons: Flight delayed and oversold. Was told I might be bumped because mine was the lowest fare type. Wouldn’t fly Porter again if that is how they run their airline.
Pros: Great value. Free beverages including a small selection of beer, wine and whiskey. Otherwise no frills, no with, no entertainment. Short haul flights, no problem. Best bargain airline
Cons: There is a fee to change your assigned seat US$10-20(?), regardless of whether it's a "better" seat. Fortunately, this trip our seats (family of three) were near where we wanted to be. But, it would have been disappointing to have to pay for each seat change for each leg, each way.
Pros: The crew is always friendly at Porter. The free wine is awesome.
Cons: There’s no entertainment.
Pros: The seat was comfortable
Cons: I could not get was the flight was delayed.
Cons: I was ripped of by baggage check!! They sold my a basic fare, which is 20 less than standard, but never told me I had to check my back which cost 40! Ended up costing me more!! I was furious
Pros: Everything went as planned.
Cons: USB or power outlets.
Pros: Great crew. Easy boarding. Free snacks and drinks.
Cons: No entertainment. No outlets/USB. Older plane.
Cons: Porter declined re-booking the flight due to weather conditions and forced us to purchase new tickets. Reservations made through anything other than Porter are treated poorly, service can be declined due to overbooking.
Pros: Free wine and beer service
Cons: Gate agents, re-booking
Cons: 12 hour delay to Toronto!!!
