“Porter chooses to fly the state-of-the-art Bombardier Q400, the most technologically-advanced regional aircraft in the world. It’s fast, quiet and offers custom leather seats with two to three inches more legroom than typical economy-class seating. This truly is flying refined.” You are served boxed lunch/breakfast, snacks and drinks (served in an actual glass!). The crew is friendly and helpful, and doesn't seem to mind refilling your glass (free) throughout the flight.
