Cons: "Seats: on one leg (Panama to Mexico City) the seats are just like in Economy class, only a wider and more legg-room. But no FOOT REST, which is essential in a long flight. Laniding in Mexico was via a staircase and a bus (no fault of Copa). Reservation via BOOKING turned out to be a problem (could not make changes in flights). I had to do it via "influence", a pain in the neck."
Pros: "Very friendly and professional service combined with good food"
Pros: "Food was ok, Some of the crew were friendly better then Mia Panama."
Cons: "The airport personnel did not help me with adding my miles to my Cops Cinbect card, they said it was no value and that Cops Connect membership want Copa, Worse they broke my expensive Nautica luggage by losing a wheel and my luggage was not even 22 kilos"
Cons: "I did not care for the fact that they set up a checkpoint after I made my connecting flight then made me recheck through security at which point they tried to confiscate our very expensive duty free purchase that was in a sealed duty free bag! Only when I demanded a manager did they stop trying to confiscate it. At which point they made me check my carry on luggage! I find this very suspicious since I also discovered that someone tried to access the inside of my luggage at Panama City on the initial flight! Your crew on the ground and in the terminals in Panama City are running scams! Beware! Very disturbed by this and plan on sharing this on social media as a beware to copa travelers going through or to Panama City! Literally set up check point at ramp to plan confiscating stuff bough in the terminal after already going through security!"

Cons: "Hard seats. Prefer individual video screen"
Pros: "En líneas generales Copa es una línea buena no excelente, ofrece cierta calidad de servicio."
Cons: "Lo que No me conviene de viajar en Copa airlines, es el poco peso permitido en el equipaje. La situación en Venezuela actualmente nos ha llevado (lamentablemente) a traer vivieres y otra serie de productos por necesidad y tuve que pagar sobrepeso. En ese sentido me conviene viajar con una línea que permita mas peso por cada valija aún cuando sacrifique la calidad del servicio. El personal en este vuelo de Miami a Panamá fué poco atento. Solicité una cobija porque tenía frío y no había."
Cons: "Leaving vegas to Panama they checked my passport and stamped my ticket "documents ok" .. Arriving in Panama we flew to costa Rica again checked my passport and stamped my ticket "documents ok" ... Now almost 11 hours later we arrive in Costa Rica and because my passport was ripped they wouldn't let me in the country and sent me back. Why your airlines couldn't have told me this before I got all the way to Costa Rica and passed two check points I don't know. So you guys said you would send us to Puerto Rico but I would have to by my own plane ticket home... Very disappointed in your airline. And to top it off my boyfriend and I had very expensive osprey packs we were traveling with .. We used a copa plastic bag to wrap them up in Vegas so the strings would not get caught .. When we received our packs in Puerto Rico YOUR employees had taken the bags off and cut my boyfriends 300 dollar bag! I will never fly again with your airline."
Pros: "I loved the food and the flight attendants' customer service. It was awesome and they were very nice."

Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Este vôo tem constantes atrasos na saída do vôo."
Cons: "Flight delayed 3+ hours due to Boeing issue. There needed to be some sort of assistance. We were offered access to the GOL lounge without asking, which was welcome, only to be refused when trying to enter. The attendant was not helpful, in fact rather negative and condescending. Not supportive."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "The boarding procedure is a nightmare. 3 gates positioned right next to each other with no one knowing which line they are in and people shoving to get through to another gate. Very stressful and disorganized"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Always delayed with no information as to when it might be departing."
Cons: "Viendo que no podrían acomodar tres adultos y dos bebés en una fila de tres asientos por falta de mascarillas de oxígeno, en lugar de reacomodar gente, nos hicieron descender del avión, no les importó mi bebé ni mi esposa que está embarazada, el peor episodio viajando, el supervisor fue descortés, poco profesional y de verdad tiró por los suelos la buena impresión que tenía de GOL"

Cons: "Extremely cramped. They ran out of certain drinks. Confusing boarding."

Cons: "Did not like being bussed to the aircraft"
Cons: "They had only 4 people checking in the luggages and the lines was huge ... my wait in line was longer than my fight which I think it's absurd"
Cons: "Flight extremely delayed, people accompaning crew boarded first and took space in the overhead, i tried to change seats no no one at the gate was willing to work"
Cons: "Gol decided to charge 35 Reals for each checked baggage. As a result most passengers do not check their bagagge and the crew has to do tetris during 20 minutes in order to accomodate all on-board items. This produces tension among passangers and the crew."
Cons: "Flight time was changed quite substantially from the time when I bought the ticket, therefore I simply did not take the trip."
Pros: "Space between seats"

Pros: "On time, good service, comfortable plane."

Cons: "Our layover was originally supposed to be an hour and a half in Phoenix.

I’d have appreciated more of a heads up than as I’m boarding."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "More snack choices"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled on Sunday and they couldn’t get us out until the following Saturday. So we had to cancel our reservation and get refunded... except American says talk to royal jordanian, royal jordanian says talk to air booking. Air booking isn’t reimbursing us and want US to pay $400."
Pros: "Nothing was better than standard"
Cons: "It felt like the staff had instructoions not to smile not even once. The food was beyond terrible. I’m not asking for hot bread like other airlines do, but at least serve it at room temperature instead of super frozen. Same for the butter. The continental breakfast had nothing continental about it"
Cons: "The legroom on AA's new planes is atrocious."
Pros: "Ease of check in"
Cons: "DIdnt understand why a seat as not assigned. A few people had the same issue and the gate agent suggested we may not get seats. Very stressful given he need to make an international connection. Gate service was not available early enough."

Cons: "No carbs free meals."
Pros: "Smooth ride, easy security"
Pros: "The boarding process was easy and the crew was great."
Cons: "Other passengers were annoying. One guy was listening to a baseball game on his phone at full volume on the plane during boarding.

Airline wouldn't try to get him a seat on another airline to help the situation. Thought I was booking this on Alaskan airline but turns out they used American. Will never use this sight again. Going to book directly with actual airline next time"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Entertainment was appreciated. Flight was smooth and landed early. There was just no offer of food unless for purchase and I was hungry and look forward to that. Even just a bag of pretzels!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Quick boarding to make up for a late flight arrival."
Pros: "I was flying with 2 children on my own and had an issue booking seats together, the gate agents worked to find a solution when we arrived and we were all seated together. Thank you so much for keeping us all together, as my one child has aspbergers and the other is only 8 and we are not frequent flyers. I highly recommend your airline to everyone I meet. Everything met or exceeded our needs. Thank you so very much."

Pros: "Quick connection"
Cons: "Tiny overhead bins - even in first class"

Cons: "Airport staff, tight seats and boarding process."

Pros: "The flight was very good. Boarding was good, shorter flight, smooth, landed and off we were."
Cons: "Seating still needs a little more padding for comfort. Delta airlines has a screen on every seat and you can see where you are and how far you have gone and so on. That would be nice. It was very difficult to hear what the pilot said when he spoke to say hello and whatever else he said. Entertainment? There wasn't any on this flight"
Pros: "wifi was great"
Pros: "Plane did not crash."
Cons: "Has anyone at AA ever watched the insane boarding process? No running water on the plane, not hot anything (coffee, tea, food). Generally terrible experience, like most of the airlines."
Pros: "Service was not only on time we landed early as oppose to me losing 1300 usd on my original flight to dallas for work Friday which I didn't make and cost me out of pocket"
Cons: "Staff behaviour"
Pros: "Staff was wonderful."
Pros: "Arrived. Crew was nice."

Pros: "Flight attendants allowed me to move into an unoccupied seat to have more room. Very polite."
Cons: "I paid $40 extra to select a seat and the seat was a middle seat and very uncomfortable and a rip off."
Cons: "Terrible customer service, multiple flight cancellations"
Cons: "Apparently my seat change did not go through because I was still stuck in the last row near the bathrooms. I must say, the fecal aroma really complemented the on set nausea that was triggered by the turbulence. Every time I thought I was gona drift off to sleep I was rudely awakened by the constant "thwacking" of the bathroom doors. The family next to me was nice enough but they did have a toddler who was very loud and unhappy and the tantrums followed. I have been a server for 14 years and generally can brush annoyances off like this but this was by far the worst flight I have been on."
Cons: "Headphones should be provided in flights"
Cons: "Got cancelled"
Cons: "When going to website to link to free entertainment the flight is wifi capable but you must purchase Internet. Not sure why they did not make the move to add free entertainment on a 4+ hour flight."
Pros: "Crew were nice and as accommodating as possible."
Cons: "On a round-trip, both airplanes on outbound and return flights had mechanical failures, resulting in over 3hr delays both times. This was for a short Austin-Dallas round trip, where I could have driven in less time than what I spent delayed at the airports. I can only conclude that AA is skimping on maintenance."

Cons: "Nothing good flight"
Cons: "3rd flight with AA this year. Luggage damaged for second time."
Pros: "O bom humor do comissário de bordo."
Cons: "Atraso (nos voos de ida e de volta) sem que tenham sido dadas explicações ou informações."

Pros: "Power outlets. Friendly staff."
Cons: "What entertainment was there? No movie, you had to pay for internet. United to me seems to be a lesser luxurious airline, not like how it use to be. It’s apparent that they are making some cut backs. Not liking this bag fee they’ve added."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Stewardess was impatient, rude and not helpful. Asked for milk & it was spoiled which made my daughter gag. Worst part is I called United to confirm they would take care of the transfer of my luggage all the way to my final destination even with sleeping over in Japan & they said yes. Turns out, I had to get all my luggage & check it back in the next day."
Cons: "No legroom in economy"
Pros: "On time departures and landings"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Due to space limitations this was one of the most uncomfortable transatlantic trips in about 30 years"
Pros: "Punctual flight, fabulous flight attendants, and the best airline food I’ve eaten in a long time. I can’t remember the last time passengers were given a menu to order food from ."
Cons: "No WiFi on board"
Cons: "Flight switched, old plane operated by Privelage Style, 0 entertainment and poor service throughout the 7 + hours from Chicago, flight an hour delayed as well"
Cons: "My July 11 fiight UA1259 was delayed and I could not connect to Milan. I had to stay in Newark for 1 night. But UA assigned me a hotel about 1 hour driving from Newark Airport. I had to rent by my own money $160 a day. UA should arraign a hotel either close to the airport or pay the rental car for me."
Pros: "Just your avergae flight and time for a quick flight to a nearby city"
Cons: "Just luggage being lost at the final destination was a despressing conversation"
Pros: "Overall experience was good."
Cons: "The food and the long layover"
Cons: "3 hours late departing, missed connection in EWR"
Pros: "The flight was just another flight, crew was speedy, and proficient."
Cons: "The seating is way too compact. Me and my neighbor we're hitting elbows the entire time."
Pros: "Flight crew friendly & helpful."
Cons: "Overbooked. No overhead storage."
Pros: "The flight was 3 hours late, for 'weather conditions' as we were told. We've been given no compensation or vouchers. Communication was super poor: displays still showing the originary boarding time. And then suddenly they started birding before the time announced."
Pros: "Great crew, especially crew from Leesburg, VA, and Baltimore, MD. Made it fun!"
Pros: "Left on time, early arrival, food was good ( and hot - for hot meal). Good service"
Cons: "A little bone jarring on landing."
Pros: "I made it to the destination on time."
Cons: "Small seats, I'm not big, just tall. You have to pay extra for everything except for non-alcoholic beverages. Crews get by doing their basic job. Pretty sure they are not even required to smile. I fly a lot and know this is just the way it is with most US continental airlines. They all suck and should take notes from any international airline."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Nothing but a sweet caramel treat offered as snack. At least could be a regular cracker, not full of sugar."
Pros: "4 hours 40 mins delay."
Pros: "United did manage to reroute us so that we cought up with the flight to Europe we were booked on."
Cons: "The arrogance and attitude from air crew, ground service staff to lounge receptionist was unreal."
Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "I didn't get any food mainly because of the cost. I did get a complimentary drink. I did not get any entertainment but was under the impression there was a cost. Too short of a flight for that."
Pros: "Flight itself was short."
Cons: "It took longer to board and wait to take off than the entire flight lasted. Deplaning and receiving gate checked bags seemed to take longer than normal times. One of the attendants (don't know his name, but he had glasses) was not pleasant. He seemed to want to be anywhere other than there."
Pros: "Not as delayed as the other United flights. Could have been worse!"
Cons: "Gate changed since earlier flight scheduled to depart at 1:30 for San Francisco was still waiting on their plane while we were ready to board at 7:20. Told to go to a different gate. That gate was for Denver but an earlier flight, too. Finally the third gate change was for the correct flight number. Lack of good communication left us and many others scrambling to find where to go."
Cons: "Delay without updates. Almost missed my connection. No TV."
Cons: "Price was not competitive"
Pros: "Space, cleanliness, boarding procedures"
Cons: "Snack options"
Pros: "Everbody seemed nice. Smooth ride."
Cons: "The back bins get filled too quickly. Same issue going and coming."
Pros: "The connection Austin to Newark, Newark to Amsterdam"
Cons: "plane could be cleaner"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours and when I checked in the agents at the front desk offered me a $10 meal voucher to restaurants that were already closed, so it was basically useless. I had to walk to opposite end of the airport just to find something open. My seat and surrounding area were filthy. There was hard, crunchy food on the floor, the tray was sticky and the seat 'cushion' was rock hard. Being that I have a preexisting lower-back condition, sitting in that seat was horrible. When I asked a flight attendant for a wet rag to wipe the tray off they told me I could just switch seats and showed that they didn't care. Basically, it was a disappointing end to a great trip."
Pros: "When they couldn't do their job they turned us over to American Airlines."
Cons: "Cancelled our scheduled 1:30 pm flight from Austin to Chicago for "scheduled" maintainence. We drove 3 hours and spent almost $300 for a rental car to get to Dallas for the flight they put us on, which we couldn't make. We told the check in counter and they gave us boarding passes for an American flight that wouldn't leave until 10:00 pm but that we could try to get on stand by for an earlier flight. At this point we were already missing a concert we were trying to make in Chicago. Another $150 gone. We were lucky enough to make the 8:30 pm Dallas to Chicago with American and arrived at Ohare by 11:00 pm. All in all United wasted $300 on a rental car, $150 of concert tickets and 5 hours of paid time off I can't get back. Very disappointed. PS: they gave us food vouchers at the airport to apologize and they were already expired. They couldn't do one thing right."
Cons: "It took almost 15 minutes to get my bag back that I had to gate check. We were not allowed to carry on."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Very disruptive passenger"
Pros: "The flight was quick and the flight attendant and crew was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "The Airplane was extremely cold!!! The seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "Ease of getting to the airport and gate for our flight. Flight was short but I was comfortable."
Pros: "we landed on time"
Cons: "we took off late"
Pros: "I didn't miss my connecting flight"
Cons: "Only 10 minutes to go 30 gates to catch my connecting flight. Not good at all!"
Pros: "Thanks for the upgrade"
Cons: "Thanks for the upgrade"
Pros: "Crew nice."
Cons: "Paying for tv. Internet in airports doesn't work."
Pros: "Not much you can say about a 30 minute flight."
Pros: "New seats were comfortable!"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Gate attendants and flight attendants gave clear instructions, kept us informed of the progress and status of boarding/the flight/ landing etc."
Cons: "no complaints"
Cons: "Lose baggage"
Pros: "One of the legs of our flight was canceled due to weather. The staff at the desk was very helpful in getting us rebooked."
Cons: "Check-in staff was so unfriendly and unprofessional, I have decided to never fly United again. It also took almost 25 minutes on-hold to try and get a customer service rep on the phone and by that time I was going to be late for my flight and United would not refund my money even though it was their issue that was causing my delay. There are too many other airlines to have to deal with the rude people at the check-in area and the lack of customer support."
