Pros: "Convenient! Love flying to Toronto on Porter. Nice glassware for drinks. Unique feel. Will definitely fly again!"
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: "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: "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: "the flight itself was good. the price was also good."
Cons: "delay of 1hour for both flights."
Pros: "Loved the Terra chips. Also the price!"

Cons: "Started with long delay instantly. After waiting in line to rebook my connecting flight which was missed because of daly I was given a boarding pas with the wrong name on it. I had to leave security line and go back to the counter. I was told it was no big deal and these things happen. After waiting a couple of hours for my next flight I was told my boarding pass had the wrong flight number on it. So once again I had to leave the boarding area to get the matter taken care of. It was a very frustrating experience."

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: "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.

Then i was told how to complete the form online and the problem was solved."

Pros: "Every thing was the best and I loved it The best airport, crew , landing , service and on time flight."
Cons: "I had problems with the check in, looks like they don't have experience or something is wrong with their system because we were 3 people with the same issue and there were only one guy helping us. I almost lost my flight. Then, the landing was awful, all of the passangers were scared, we didn't know what was happening and they never told us."

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."

The LCD entertainment system is very slow to respond to touch. The default sound level is always too loud. The commercials take up the first 10 minutes (or longer) of the experience and make for an excruciating long wait."
Cons: "Flight was late taking off"

Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed and everything else since boarding was a mess. It was hard for the fly hostess to keep her calm and we knew she was stressed, as much as many passengers who lost their connection or who had really tied ones. I noticed also that it wasn't the only flight delayed so I am not sure if this is usual with Air Canada."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "It was delayed which caused my connection to be cancelled and rebooked for next day. Was extremly uncomfortable and very expensive"
Pros: "The staff was accommodating."
Cons: "The flight had two legs: from Boston to Toronto and from Toronto to New Delhi. The layover was 1 hr 6 min, which was tight. After checking in our bags, we found out that the first leg of our flight is 2 hours late, so obviously we couldn't take the second flight. Looking at the TV monitors, I noticed that pretty much ALL Air Canada flights are seriously delayed. Luckily, there was an earlier flight to Toronto (which was scheduled to have already left, but it did not leave because that was delayed, too). The staff put us on that flight and double promised to make sure that our checked in baggage gets transferred to this alternate flight. The checked bags did not get transferred. When we arrived at Delhi, after an exasperating 1.5 hour delay after a 20 hour flight, the airline told us, and many others in the same situation, that our baggage did not arrive, and we have to come the next day to pick them up. The issue was, we were not staying in Delhi, just transiting through it. No luck, the airline said, because the customs have to be cleared at the port of entry. We are still waiting for our baggage. Oh, and if that was not enough, the airline allocated well separated seats for all the members of our family. I'd think it would be a common sense that people who have been booked on the same ticket must be assigned consecutive seats. But apparently Air Canada does not have much common sense. NOT flying with them ever again!"
Cons: "Late and overbooked Toronto Airport Dodd is bad. --- no veggie optional"
Cons: "The waiting room in Boston was awful and behind security, hot, small crowded. Delayed"
Pros: "Excellent crew and comfortable cabin."
Cons: "I have no criticisms to offer."
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."
Pros: "The crew at the gate and onboard were exceptional! At the gate they made sure I could get on this flight even though the computer auto booked me for 2 days later."
Cons: "My bags didn't make it on the flight because of a close connection. Then I was rebooked on a flight 2 days later. This is unacceptable. I was expected to stay in Toronto for two days."
Cons: "crew are polite but cold and strict. it was a night flight and they were very noisy when serving the food."
Pros: "Bos->Toronto Good Air Canada at Boston Logan airport has there own gate area with only 3 gates. This reduces the security line for faster security check. However this also causes problems with PreCheck. See below."
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."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "great hotel paid for by Air Canada"
Cons: "5 hours late - missed connecting flight"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment selection. It had starwars, that was a big plus."

Pros: "Everything at the airport and while flying went great!"
Cons: "When my flight got cancelled, the staff on the phone was not helpful. Also the email notification on the cancelled flight was poorly explained. I wish the Air Canada explained the situation more fully in the email. If they had, I wouldn't have worried as much as I did about my international traveling."
Cons: "Air canada just didn't even show up, I had to take a different plane to Japan which made me late for my last flight so I had to stay in a hotel and wait til the morning to catch a new plane. So ya, not impressed."
Pros: "Short flight, as expected on smaller older plane"
