Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Nice crew, loved the complimentary wine!"
Cons: "Airplane was too warm and made the flight uncomfortable."
Cons: "I was required to pay for my carryon, which I was never informed during my booking."
Cons: "I paid almost half as much as I paid for the flight to have a carry on bag. I was not informed about this fer when I was buying the ticket. $48 is an outrageous fee for a carry on bag, I would never have bought this ticket had I known."
Cons: "Treated rudely and arbitrarily at check-in; charged extra baggage fees not previewed in reservation receipt and not charged in intial leg; flight itself left and arrived more than 2 hours late. This whole experience sucked."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and even roomy, compared to many other airlines."
Cons: "Two minor drawbacks: (1) In the Porter lounge, where I was stuck between connecting flights, the cost of food was too high. (2) The weather buffets these small planes more than would be the case with jetliners."
Pros: "Easy airport"
Cons: "My return flight was delayed by 90 minutes."
Pros: "Nothing particularly good about this airline."
Cons: "Flights are always delayed. You can just look up their average delay and compare it to other airlines. This last time, my flight was 4 hours delayed, which was announced by 30 minutes increments."
Pros: "Seats , hostess good"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour. And no functioning toilet."
Pros: "Free drinks."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Worst delays! 5 consecutive delays which amounted to over 3 hours!"
Pros: "There was nothing I did not like about this flight. The crew was great, very friendly and got me to my destination as they said they would. No complaints."
Cons: "the snack (chips) I recieved was expired and had a smell to it!"
Pros: "The cabin crew provided the most information out of the entire experience and were extremely friendly. I appreciate Dawn in particular. The lounge is nice when it is not so over-crowded. I appreciate some complimentary minor snacks and drinks; it certainly helped with the delay. What would normally be sufficient seating and power outlets became people tripping over each other with delayed flights."
Cons: "The lounge staff were hard to find and not communicative about delays. The board only had 1 update to my departure time, which was 30 mins after the originally scheduled time, and did not update again until 25 minutes after that second time had passed. The lounge staff did not make an announcement until after that board update and even then the information was wrong. The one time I found someone to ask a question to, I was given the same information. I had no idea why there was a delay or what to expect and no way of finding out. It made coordinating next steps upon my arrival to my destination extremely difficult. The lounge is not particularly well-equipped for multiple delayed flights."
Pros: "Smaller gate lounge area with lots of private space and complimentary drinks and snack. All Porter employees that I had interaction were professional and attentive to my needs"
Cons: "No suggestion"
Pros: "Boarding and flight were fairly smooth, the crew were friendly and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Told that due to turbulence, no cart service would be available. There didn't seem to be a whole lot of turbulence that would prevent cart service. We did get a bag of terra chips and a small water."
Pros: "Started late but arrived before time"
Cons: "flight was delayed 3+ hours"
Pros: "Free drinks and snacks. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "Very small overhead compartment. Boarding procedure was chaotic."
Pros: "Crew was co operative Food nice"
Cons: "Heavy baggage charges ! We were chaged about 28 USD for 3 check in bags totol weidht only 46 Kg ! We shoud have been chaged for only 2 bags coz 2nd bag is free ! Extra charged for 1 bag should be refunded"
Pros: "There was a 30 min. delay. The waiting area was crowed and the audio system poor. The speaker's speech was so garbled it was hard to decipher what was being said about the delay and boarding. The flight itself was fine with very friendly crew."
Pros: "The staff is very competent. Friendly without overdoing it / being fake. I always fly Porter if I can, especially out of YTZ."
Pros: "Everyone was so nice and friendly Loved the snack"
Cons: "No complaints!!"
Pros: "very professional and great attitude"
Cons: "I missed it because porter gave my ticket away when I asked for a refund for my precious flight because their customer service reps do not speak English well."
Pros: "It was an easy flight but the checking in was slow."
Cons: "Kiosks would not scan US passports.This info was not given to US CITIZENS upon arrival at check in counter.A few of us wasted lots of time trying to make it work."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for about 4 hours then canceled on a Sunday night and I wasn't rebooked until Wednesday morning. Porter staff said I would only be refunded the "pro-rated" fare for the leg that was canceled. This makes no sense as I had to buy my own ticket home from another airline and I didn't get to pay a "pro-rated" fare because I was halfway home. They also put us up in an extremely sketchy hotel that was unsafe, unclean and had an active prostitution ring going on."
Pros: "Great flight. Seats a little tight."
Pros: "On the whole a great experience"
Cons: "Nothing to not like"
Pros: "We enjoyed the free food and drinks in the airport and also it was our first time ever taking a ferry to the airport! Our flight was delayed slightly but the airport personnel communicated with us about the delay. Flight crew was pleasant and friendly. I would fly Porter again!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. I arrived an hour late and missed my pick up ride.I had to spend an extra $50 to get home."
Pros: "Complimentary refreshments. Not too much...just enough. Thank you, Porter!"
Cons: "My first time using Porter...certainly not my last."
Cons: "I've flown Porter every week for the past 3 months and this was the first bad experience I've had. The flight attendant was the rudest person and treated me with the most disrespect. He should take off two weeks and then quit, has given this great airline a bad reputation."
Pros: "The airfare is always reasonable and the service dependable."
Cons: "Boarding can be a little chaotic. They announced boarding 10 minuter after we should have started."
Pros: "On time, no issues, good staff"
Pros: "Love that Billy Bishop airport and its free cappuccino!"
Pros: "Great lounge area"
Cons: "I do not fault the crew at all for the weather or the delays. However, the airline desk was understaffed and did a horrible job of keeping passengers updated with news regarding their flights. I feel bad for the two staffers manning the desk because they had to deal with a deluge of angry people needing alternative flights because of all the cancellations."
Pros: "Porter is a generous and comfortable airline, with kind and helpful staff."
Cons: "It might have been the weather, but both flights were extremely turbulent during landing."
Pros: "Complementary snacks in waiting area."
Cons: "If you don't take a morning Flight on Porter, you cans forget about arriving on time. Their connections in Toronto are always late and they lie about the reasons. This time, their onsite customer service agent said it was mechanical. The pilot then told us it was a late arriving plane from another destination . It's worth it to pay extra to go nonstop. Never again"
Cons: "There were many delays on flights took that were not communicated to me until I had boarded."
Pros: "The flight in and out of Billy Bishop was fantastic. The flights were smooth and surprisingly quiet for a turboprop. The complimentary drinks and snacks at the terminal is something many other airlines can learn from. Will definitely fly with Porter again soon!"
Cons: "Limitations on distance due to the turboprop! If you can make flights to Florida, I would be one of many happy passengers."
Pros: "Convenient Toronto airport Complimentary coffee and cookie at the airport"
Pros: "The Porter desk staff were pretty quick in recognizing that a hoard of passengers from a super delayed flight needed to find their connections immediately. They were able to print out new passes and direct flyers in only a few minutes."
Cons: "Porter flies out of Billy Bishop in Toronto, and the dated airport definitely has an impact on you when you are stuck there for long periods of time."
Cons: "4 hour delay."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "Cancellation with little notice and rebooked on flight two days later."
Pros: "New aircraft. Light dinner and breakfast was available. We didn’t expect them so we were surprised."
Cons: "Long line to check in at T1."
Cons: "Tight cabin on Regional aircraft."
Pros: "Entertainment system is better than usual"
Cons: "No wifi available for purchase for such a long flight"
Pros: "Many airlines have code share flights but it is better to buy ticket directly from the original airline as they keep on ignoring the code share flight bookings"
Cons: "Till last moment we were kept hanging if we will board or not as no seat number was allocated. I believe it was as we were from the code share airline not the real one"
Cons: "I have taken 6 flights with your company in the last two weeks. Each has had a minimum of 45 min delay. Your seats are very small. Your planes seem dated and have no entertainment system on board, oh unless I want to pay another $10 bucks for an Ipad.. Food , what food. You did not have half of the items on your own menu.. and when I bought some cheese and crackers, I had to remind the lady that cashews were in the picture too. You have a mediocre airline, nothing to brag about here."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "I did not fly to Montreal and I did not catch flight to Barcelona I am fling again tonight Toronto - Barcelona direct"
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "Flight delays"
Cons: "Air Canada staff appear to wear their job dissatisfaction on their sleeves. They don't smile enough and often when they do its to each other like there's an inside joke we don't know about."
Pros: "Nice plane on short flight. Why can't they use the nice planes on the long haul flights?"
Pros: "The flight attendant was trying very hard to comfort passengers with very cheerful attitude. She was a savior of the flight."
Cons: "The way the ground crew handled the delay such as the way explaining (or lack of) the cause of delay to the passengers after the 5 hour of extra waiting."
Cons: "It was late by an hour and I missed my connection. My flight on the way out we sat on the plane an hour and a half. Once the connection was missed they didn't handle things smoothly at all. I could write a book but it will just get me worked up again."
Cons: "There was cold air blowing on our feet the entire flight."
Pros: "Staff and food"
Cons: "We lost one of our bags"
Pros: "Polite and friendly crew"
Cons: "Connection was a hectic with staff sending up and down to get our boarding passes. TSA had short lines but long wait and a lot of attitude."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful I was very glad that the Toronto boarding person recommended that i get on the flight as there were still empty seats -- there were no seats on the next flight that i had been switched to because my bag was on that one (supposedly)..."
Cons: "My bag was not on the next flight, so i had to get a hotel room for the nite, It was not on the 8/14/16 Sunday morning flight as stated their system; although the Dulles manager was very helpful, my bag was nowhere to be found. Someone drove to Dulles from Va Beach with my car keys -- i was called sunday nite that bag arrived.and would be fedex'd 2-day which put arrival at Wed 8/17/16. Still not here on 8/20/16. Sad and disappointed at how botched the return trip was."
Pros: "The helpdesk was helpful when I got a hold of someone. The compensation was decent."
Cons: "I bought my round trip ticket from DC to Paris via Toronto since March 2016. But the flight back from Toronto to DC was overbooked and I got bumped off the flight. The agents were severely understaffed and had no information about the situation. Also, when I finally got the flight back to DC, my luggage was lost."
Cons: "It was cancelled."
Pros: "A few of the crew members were very pleasant and professional. The choice of movies was good, though I had to sit through five minutes of advertisements before they started."
Cons: "I was flying from London to the U.S. with a connection in Toronto. One of the crew members, who was somewhat rude, told me that I would need to fill out Canadian and American customs forms and go through both in Canada, and to not "stop for coffee" as the plane was 20 minutes behind schedule. I had a question about the Canadian form and asked another crew member who told me (correctly) that the first crew member was wrong; I did not need to fill out the Canadian form or visit Canadian customs for my one hour layover. When checking in at the kiosk, my seat was shown as an aisle seat so I didn't try to change it, but my boarding pass printed a middle seat which is very uncomfortable for a tall person."
Pros: "Flight attendant's were friendly amid the circumstances."
Cons: "Our first flight was cancelled 15 minutes before scheduled take-off. upon being bumped to another flight two hours later, that flight was delayed two hours after an issue during take-off. We remained on the plane while mechanic/engineering staff rectified the problem. We booked a flight to save time on driving. We would have arrived earlier had we drove. I understand things happen, but the airline eneds to take responsibility and show some good customer service. Aside from the pilot, no apology given, no reimbursement offered. Disappinting. Air Canada is now a last-resort option for a frequent flyer like myself."
Cons: "Customs was disorganized and we were sent to the back of the line twice. The people working there didn't know what they were doing. Then our flight was delayed 3 separate times, first 2 hours, then another hour, then another hour. The seats on the plane were made for children. Luckily it was only a 1 1/2 hour flight."
Cons: "4 hours delay with no explanation and the least of apologies."
Cons: "Delay after delay."
Cons: "Terrible all around. About 10 total delays and one on flight delay totalling 7 hours. No information except lies was given the whole time."
Cons: "Lost bag"
Cons: "Everything from customer service to flight."
Cons: "7 hour delay combined with the most rude airline staff I have ever met."
Pros: "Cabin crews and the actual flight was an alright experience, it was the personnel on the ground."
Cons: "Lack of personnel in cdg for checking bags & rude personnel on the ground."
Cons: "Again, more delays."
Pros: "This flight left without us due to delayed arrival on Air Canada flight from Seoul to Toronto. The positive was that it was one Air Canada flight I didn't get on."
Cons: "Due to lack of available options to get to ANY DC area airport before the evening the day after we were supposed to arrive, I accepted going to Philadelphia. That flight was also delayed. From there I rented a car and got home at 3 a.m. instead of 9:45 p.m., about when we would have gotten home on the original flight. If we had waited for the next available flight to the DC area, it would have arrived some time after 2:48 p.m. the day after we were supposed to arrive. I know this because I was told this was the fastest route to DC--before the same Air Canada agent then told me that it was no longer available. A dreadful experience."
Pros: "Billy Bishop airport is awesome!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew didn't accommodate a rebooking despite availability .. Although original flight did board soon after."
Pros: "It was a quick flight."
Pros: "Nothing to expect more"
Cons: "The amount of snacks served should be increased"
Cons: "The departure postponed several times. The comfort in those parts of Toronto and Dulles airport which us Canada express is absent at all. There are no even seats enough for all passengers."
Pros: "My Flight was canceled without us getting any notification and causing major delays and headaches with NO offer for compensation to help e.g. with a $70 taxi we had to incur to get from DCA to IAD. Poor service"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The crew did not cater to the passengers. Every international flight I've been on, the crew members always ask if we want more snacks or drinks. I was never approached. Also, I asked for an extra blanket and was told no."
Pros: "The crew got us out of Toronto very quickly"
Cons: "The incredibly small overhead bins"
Pros: "no entertainment or food. drink service got to back of the airplane about 5 minutes before beginning descent. Problems though were all before getting on the plane. Will not fly through Pearson again."
Cons: "After 12-hour flight from Tokyo, found flight to Dulles cancelled, with no adequate passenger assistance. Few staff to deal with issues and no familiarity with DC airports, IT support for the few staff available was poor. At re-booked flight gate, the area service desk unattended for an hour; finally found a helpful ground crew who said they are on break and got staff to service the desk, albeit grudgingly. Several flights delayed, in the horrible Gates F-84-99 area; confusion reigned supreme. Staff needs to understand that Dulles is way west of DC and BWI is way NE, so getting re-routed from Dulles to BWI is MAJOR change in ground transportation options and distances. Also need to update IT programming so staff can use it easily without long waits and calls for help. and some air conditioning in the F 84-90 gates area would be nice. Horrible situation--not enough seating, only service in whole area is one bagel shop."
Cons: "This plane was very late! I understand this happens a lot."
Cons: "first flight cancelled, second flight delayed so impossible to get the connection. Nobody called me about it, I had to go to ask."
Pros: "Love Air Canada"
Pros: "Helpful friendly staff. flight on time."
Cons: "I booked with Airmiles and only had 1 flight time to choose from. Then when I changed my flight time I had to pay double what it would normally have cost me had I booked and paid for my flight instead of using Airmiles. Why are there not more flight times to choose from in the first place when booking through Airmiles?"
Cons: "The baggage checkin was awful. The boarding check in was awful. The security check in was awful. The customs check in was awful. Understaffed and inefficient. The baggage conveyor backed up. The same staff that checked in our baggage was the same person who then ran upstairs to check us in at gate and it was all hand done and not computer scanned. No check in kiosks to make ticket checkin faster. Lines were all backed up and I barely made flight and my connection. Many either missed flights it connection or plane was held up to get people to flights. The lady at customs check in was good trying to handle the back ups but the shrine was severely backed up and understaffed. The pilots made good time and handle the turbulence well. Staff on board did well with timing of food and drinks Entertainment on board was awful. Didn't find out until on board on 8 hour international flight that needed an iPad with downloaded app for entertainment and therefore I had three kids that had nothing to do. Never did I have such an issue with an international flight that was so poorly managed. So disappointed."
Pros: "The fact that I was rebooked immediately to my new flight AC-DC 705 at 8:50 am by two wonderful ladies at La guardia airport who comforted then boarded me unto a flight due to the fact that I missed my original flight. This occured due to the Airport being Unorganized! As I had checked in well before 3 hours and was on time for my original flight at 8:30 am."
Cons: "The airport was extremely packed, Unorganized and not well staffed. What I hated is that when I arrived at my original gate A7 the gentleman who boarded my original flight was unprofessional, rude, basically ignored me and said "You missed your flight !" Not even taking the time to listen to my situation or guide me in my next steps of acquiring a new flight to go to my classes and home in Toronto!"
