Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Lead flight attendant was attentive, cheerful, and helpful!"
Pros: "The crew was very professional."
Cons: "For a quick hop from Boston to toronto this was ideal."
Pros: "Crew was great. Enjoyed the free wine"
Cons: "Include baggage and seat in price. Such a bummer to pay more at the airport"
Pros: "Convenient! Love flying to Toronto on Porter. Nice glassware for drinks. Unique feel. Will definitely fly again!"
Pros: "The crew was great and friendly."
Cons: "Nothing, I think for the flight duration it was good."
Cons: "Especially for USA and Canada travel, allow some luggage, you guys embarrassed my child by charging her luggage fee because she had to bring a device she requires. She felt embarrassed."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. It happens, I know. First time using this airline, ended up landing 1.5 hour later than planned. The boarding process in Toronto was bizantyne, with some discrepancy in the checks and balance forcing a manual check in of all passengers. Amateurish."
Pros: "Seamless checkin and boarding. Captain got us home 20mins early. Love Porter!"
Cons: "I wish the airplane had USB plugs to charge my phone. Maybe one day Porter will retrofit the airplanes with more conveniences."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and boarding was efficient. Great value for the cost of the ticket."
Cons: "The crew was very attentive to the passenger beside me who was demanding. Unfortunately, their attention meant they overlooked my requests and forgot to provide me with a drink. Also, for a 10am flight, other passengers should know not to arrive before 8am. The counter at doesn't open before then."
Pros: "Crew was nice, free drinks of all sorts."
Cons: "Plane was 3 hours late leaving and we were given five different reasons for it. There were no weather problems. Overheads won't hold what most airlines will, and Porter's low fares lose value due to extra charges like seat reservation and luggage."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and rescheduled 2 days later!"
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."
Pros: "Crew and service were good"
Cons: "Improper information stating the fare could not have carry on bags. Small plane"
Cons: "I lost my flight because the person know how old me"
Pros: "Great crew. Helped me move to a seat closer to the front as ones further back make me claustrophobic."
Cons: "I don’t like your new policy of not opening up fee free seats 24 hrs before the flight. You used to do that and now if you don’t pay the extra $25 you get stuck in the back row even though there are lots of available seats. You can do better than this Porter. Especially for loyal customers."
Pros: "free snacks and drinks, friendly attendants"
Cons: "over an hour delayed flight take off, state of the seats"
Pros: "the location was perfect, i was able to walk to downtown and other tourist attractions"

Pros: "Prompt service and proximity of airport to the city. We literally walked to our hotel"

Pros: "I love the space on the plane. Not many passengers. I had the row all to myself!"
Cons: "The last minute call for passport validation. I thought I was all set and then a call came over the loud speaker to come forward and check passports. I didn't know where to go and I thought I with going to miss the plane. Other passengers asked me what was going on and where should they go. I figured it out and just made it back for boarding in the nick of time. I wish the call had of been made earlier or that a big sign was posted."

Cons: "Landing. Both times the landing steps were shaky and uncomfortable. Taking off was no problem at all so really not sure why landing was so hard to swallow... as in I wouldn't bring my baby on board just because of this."
Cons: "When i booked my ticket online there was no indication or warning that i needed to complete eta online as i was not traveling on a us or canadian passport. At the ticket desk i was initially told i could not fly because of this and that it was up to me to know about the eta requirement. Then i was told how to complete the form online and the problem was solved."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "No wifi or screen"
Pros: "Travel was seamless Flights were surprisingly punctual Staff was friendly and planes are comfy for short flights - Lounge is the best ! definitely the highlight of flying porter. They stand behind their slogan... " Flying Refined ""

Pros: "Lounge had complimentary beverages and snacks, security was a breeze, no line up. The complimentary snack and beverage (alcohol too!) was great."
Cons: "Lounge was a little run down looking. My flight home was cancelled, having just received the news as I was on the bus to the airport. So my 11:20am flight became a 6:30pm flight, no reason given. Later on in the afternoon that flight got moved to 7:30pm... At the airport, they changed the gate and then my final boarding time ended up being 8:00pm. So not impressed!! I had pre-purchased a bus ticket home which I lost the money on, Porter has not responded to my request for them to pay for that. PLUS my husband having to then drive 1.5 hours to pick me up and then drive us home another 1.5 hours at 10:30 at night. What a total mess, I had work booked the entire next day and night that I was now exhausted for."

Cons: "I could have used more leg room being so tall."

Cons: "Bad There is only one line for security at Air Canada Boston Logan because of the small volume at this check point. Because of this, PreCheck passages need to hold onto there bording pass as they go through security. The first security person who checks ID and boarding pass only told my wife not to take off her shoes. He did not tell her to hold on to her boarding pass, so she put it into the bin for x-ray stuff. So later security personnel then told her to take off her shoes and gave her a body scan because her boarding pass was already in the x-ray machine. I always hold on to my boarding pass thru security but had to take my computer out of my carry-on."

Cons: "Why do they always want to check bags that are your everyday carryon items (large purse, medium backpac, etc.), but allow people to carryon their larger carry on suitcases filling up the overhead bins.

Then the ticket counter in SF was understaffed and it took a long time to get the receipt printed (Once at the counter the agent was very helpful, efficient and quick).
