Cons: "The crew on this particular flight was not up to par with the previous KLM crew standards. From the boarding, which they started letting economy class before elderly people and Skypriority to the lack of at least a smile from the crew serving you. Copa please train your crew. After we are the client"
Pros: "what a difference from the flight crew. Much more attentive and responsive to our flight requests."
Cons: "This flight was better. Short flight and very attentive crew. I figure the seat selection on mobile app would be my choice next time."
Pros: "Crew was nice , Food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "The check in process in Costa Rica was very bad. I wasn’t allowed to check in online, so then I get to the airport and there are seven windows open, six windows for people that are already checked in, and just one window for people that weren’t able to check in. very long wait for no reason"
Pros: "The crew was amazing but the space very poorly"

Pros: "Lots of food during the flight."
Cons: "Plastic cups were really small. I would like a bottle of water."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "We boarded on and left on time"
Cons: "There was a storm at our destination, Panama City and we were unable to land on time ultimately missing our connecting flight. The crew gave us little to no communication about the situation and when asked they said our connecting flights would wait for us. When we finally did land there was not a gate available. We had to wait for a bus to pick us up and drive to a gate, this took at least 30 minutes. When we finally got to the gate of our connecting flight, we were only 15-20 minutes late. Our flight had already left and the staff directed us to the information desk for assistance. They sent us in the wrong direction. When we got to the correct desk we waited for an hour and a half to be seen, there were at least 30 people behind us. They offered us a flight that wouldn’t arrive to our final destination, San Francisco, for two days. We opted to have them fly us to Miami and then had to purchase our own flight from Miami to San Francisco. When we boarded our flight to Miami later that night we had to wait for over an hour for other passengers and bags that were delayed. Our bags are missing and we had to wait in an another hour long line to submit a claim. Overall it’s been a complete nightmare."
Cons: "Less flys hour"
Pros: "Boarded on time, arrived early, good breakfast (with fresh papaya) and a turkey melt for a lunch snack. Great choices for movies, tv, music. A bargain."

Cons: "Better Entertainment"

Cons: "The usual with all planes when you fly economy ...cramped seats"
Cons: "It was great"
Pros: "Flight to Panama City from JFK went well."
Cons: "The tickets we paid for back in August of 2017 were bought for a direct flight. When checking in for our flight back to JFK on March 18th, they told us there were no seats available. They then put us on a connecting through Orlando, all of us had to sit separately now. We had to each spent money we did not intend to use for this vacation on food since our day was well extended beyond expected and parking fees for keeping our car at JFK longer. Once arrived in Orlando, two out of the four of us missed our flight to JFK because they gave us the wrong boarding passes and because we are students in college, lost multiple hours of studying tonight. We had to then work with Delta who was kind enough to find us a flight multiple hours later. Like said before, this split our group up and caused multiple difficulties. We will never fly Copa again. They believe a $400 Copa airlines voucher is justifiable for what happened but it is not. I’ll never fly with them again for this inconvenience so a voucher doesn’t do anything."
Pros: "There’s a glitch on this page that is not allowing me to select 5 stars for my overall rating but everything was FABULOUS! Sweet attentive sharp staff. Would definitely travel with Copa again."
Pros: "Nothing, maybe except for the price (which was a little cheaper than most other airlines flying to my destination)."
Cons: "The planes were very small, especially for a 7 hour flight. The seats were tiny and uncomfortable. They claimed that we didn't order vegetarian meals (even though we did), but maybe it was for the best - the food was awful and there was enough. Thank God I brought trail mix with me, otherwise I would have starved. The airport in Panama City is AWFUL, HORRIBLE, the absolute WORST. Avoid that airport like the plague, if you can."
Pros: "I liked"
Pros: "The overall experience was excellent, everyone was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The only thing worth noting was that sad, sad sandwich they gave us. It did bring a tear to my eye. I would have prefered no service, or the ability to buy something (which im not sure i coul have done)."
Pros: "Service,flight crew, the attention and the flight was excellent"
Pros: "No hubo problema con el equipaje"
Cons: "Es tiempo de espera para transbordar"
Cons: "The seat was too small. I am 5' 5" and 135 lb and it felt totally small and uncomfortable. I had trouble sitting all the time, the seat also doesn't recline enough. This was a totally awful trip due to the seat."
Pros: "Safe trip"
Cons: "Size of plan - very little room Sometimes the crew only spoke in Spanish when making announcements."
Cons: "Why would you put a cartoon on to watch??"
Pros: "I've always had a great experience when I travel with Copa!"
Pros: "Meals and drinks included. Includes two free checked bags. Prompt and on time."
Cons: "Did not have forms in English."
Pros: "Loved the check in. No baggage expense. Up to two bags FREE! Then, we had a meal --that was included in the fare. The crew was pleasant and accommodating. Everyone was pleasant. To pass the time on the 5 1/2 hour flight, there were options for movies, TV, games and etc. Overall, it was a pleasant flight. When I book my next trip, I'm going to see if Copa goes there. If so, that's my first choice."
Cons: "persons from Copa at boarding time, lost....!"
Pros: "Free on board Entertainment"
Pros: "Personal entertainment screen."
Cons: "The food!!!"
Cons: "Limited dinner and no breakfast"
Pros: "One of your crew members went above and beyond to help a family that was sitting next to me. That kind if service was unexpected and a huge help to the family. We were all impressed. They were all very cordial and polite."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Nothing. They said I was a no show on Wednesday Miami Panama and cancelled my reservation. They made me go to The airport and didn't even apologize. Unbelievable mistake."
Cons: "The way I was treated"
Pros: "Everything was excellent. I would take Copa Airlines any other time."
Pros: "I have flown with COPA for years and they never fail to impress me. Food is great for what it is (aircraft food) one of the best I have ever had. flight is pleasant and smooth most of the time. always super helpful and make it a seamless experience"
Pros: "The crew on this flight was incredibly nice and helpful"
Cons: "Not comfy and food so and so"
Cons: "El vuelo a Montevideo was overbooked y eso desperto muchas ansiedades pues tenia que llegar a bs as a tratamientos medicos"
Pros: "I love the genral flight experice. I found the crew very helpful and friendly. I liked the food."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "I flew executive class. The staff was very friendly and professional on the ground and on the air. seats are comfortable and there's a lot of storage space. The plane left on time and entertainment option aboard is great. What I did not like is that being seated in row 3, for four flights, I never got to eat the meal I wanted. It's seems the option always dies in row 2, just after less than half of the passengers flying executive class have ordered they meal. The rest was great and I would fly copa again!"
Pros: "I liked the movie choices and the refreshments. The crew was nice."
Cons: "Sitting in the last row is horrible because people constantly lean very close to you and bump into you waiting to use the bathroom. Me pegaron las otras personas como cien veces mientras que estaban esperando para usar el baño, porque estuve en la fila trasera de asientos. Especialmente cuando tuvimos que aterrizar en Asunción debido a la tormenta (entiendo la demora, no pudo haber sido evitado), había muchas personas andando para hacerles preguntas a las empleados, pegándome y estando de pie con sus traseros muy cercas de mi cara. Era horrible sentarme allá."
Pros: "At take off the plain a bird hit the wing. Crew gave feedback on what they knew. They remain calmed and try to share that feelings of everything will be alright."
Cons: "It took too long to get the flight changes. Staff was taking names of volunteers that wanted to stay, and for those who wanted to leave in the next flight. This could be more efficient by making groups--depending on the options. And try to keep more staff in the floor to help the passengers to direct them in the right option. We had only four people trying to do all."
Pros: "Crew excellent!"
Cons: "The flight was crowded!"
Cons: "I almost lost my coincidence with the other flight"
Cons: "Nothing evething is ok"
Pros: "The captain was very professional"
Cons: "Departure was late because of problem with thrust reversers. Once the plane started to push back after 1,5 hours delay, we had to return to the gate for another 30 mins because of an error on the maintenance logbook entry."
Cons: "No snacks or drinks provided on any of my flights on American this weekend. 2 of them were real short so that makes sense but other 2 were long enough to have this but stopped before my row. We were Delayed, which is understandable, but not sure why we couldn't board and wait for crew to come on to speed up process rather than waiting for crew to arrive to even begin boarding process. I assume it's a safety thing but seems like there could be a better way to handle this and speed up process to make sure people aren't missing connecting flights."
Cons: "A different choice of snacks would be nice."
Pros: "Boarding very well done."
Cons: "One of the crew was unhappy."
Pros: "Yes! The crew was amazing! The seat was perfect!"
Cons: "It was very cold on the plane."
Pros: "It was on time!"

Pros: "The plane, Embrair 175 is very comfortable."
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "AA provided me NO assistance when my flight was cancelled and I had to make arrangements on my own, which caused me to incur in extra expending."
Cons: "Wifi didn’t work."
Cons: "The seating was not good middle seat I like windows"
Pros: "Pleasant flight crew!!"
Pros: "I really appreciate the automatic notifications letting me know what gate my connection is at and what baggage claim I’m in. Very nice."
Cons: "Nothing that I took note of."
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "last minute upgrade was nice, made sleeping much nicer. food was good, flight uneventful which is always a good thing."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants had an attitude and we not very personable to others. Just doing their job, ticking off the boxes. One was very kind, the others not so much."
Cons: "Plane was changed, lost all upgrades and assigned a random seat. One of the flight attendant had poor customer skills, was just rude overall."
Pros: "Lots of leg room for such a small plane."
Cons: "AA did not update the flight status. My inbound flight was delayed due to weather but AA kept reporting the connecting flight as on time. I ended up making the connection with time to spare. If AA had reported the delayed departure I would have stopped for food. My bag did not make the connection."
Cons: "on a 5+ hour flight, that was diverted back to the originating airport due to a passenger who had extreme DTs from excessive drinking the night before, and made the flight return, American offered NO compensation AND the aircraft was so old, there were NO back seat monitors NOR any means to charge our electrical devices!!!"
Pros: "Everything was very smooth and pleasant overall."
Pros: "The crew and the service"
Cons: "The seat I have had 13C for the last 3 flights to and from Miami on this plane has the controller broken where it does not stay in place and pops out. This time a soda was spilt on the seat, and the steward had to change the seat out for a clean and dry one.this plane has no entertainment displays other than the general cabin ones and this one is out of focus and the colors are blurred."
Pros: "I really like that they free inflight WiFi and entertainment. The seats are little more comfortable than other airlines. The service was great too."
Pros: "The crew was accommodating"
Cons: "The crew was pleasant. No water served due to turbulence"
Pros: "No major delays. Boarding and exiting was smooth. Got assigned a window seat near front"
Cons: "Small delay of 25 minutes"
Pros: "Plane was surprisingly spacious in coach and very clean."
Cons: "They seemed to have entire plane boarding in group 6. Hardly anyone boarded in groups 1-5, and when they called 6 the entire gate area lined up."
Pros: "It had 1980 common program and not an in seat outdated"
Cons: "Was not compensated for arranging trans from Albuquerque to Santa Fe! Refused delivery of bag Santa Fe address!"
Cons: "This was an MD80 that had absolutely been ridden to death. I thought that AA was modernizing their fleet? This was a 30 year old plane."
Cons: "Very inefficient that all bags had to be checked on the jet way and then picked up on the jet way. The picking up on the jet way turned into a cluster F."
Pros: "The boarding was fast, the flight was faster than expected too, crew was very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Space between seats too small, breakfast not good, too far inside the plane... Not so happy of the company rules : whatever you want to change, it will cost you. I suppose it's the way to keep flights cheap, but it's not fair to pay if when you arrive first, you have to pay to change for another seat... One free luggage of 23 kg when you cross the Atlantic is not enough..."
Cons: "Two hour delay in departure. They had an unspecified mechanical problem and had to get a different aircraft. They did not make any restitution to the passengers. Not even a free beer."
Cons: "flight from Philly to Ithaca was late also"
Pros: "Very simple process. Easiest trip ever. Baggage was easy. Nice staff."
Cons: "It was an eight and a half hour flight that took place in the night. My seat was broken so it did not recline. I also have trouble sleeping on flights and thought there would be the opportunity to watch TV/movies but this was not the case unless you wanted to pay extra. Most international flights already have this built in for free and should be included in the cost. What a disappointment flying on American was. I will take LAN or Copa from now on as my other options."
Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "Didn't like being grounded in Charleston because we were on a commuter flight while our AA connections was allowed to land in Charlotte and leave without us. Did not know AA operated flights receive priority at the airports over their inferior non-AA operated "partners". Will look for alternatives to AA in the future. Flight too short for a drink! No lodging because not their fault! Okay, storm not their fault, faulty policy is!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment, seat was not clean."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, God food, pleasant flight."
Pros: "The food and drinks were great. Flight left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "This flight was actually on an American 777. One of the older models. For an almost 9+ hour flight, the in-seat entertainment systems need to be upgraded. The seats did not have USB charging capabilities, the selection of movies at the seat consisted of about 8 choices, and the screen size wasn't much larger than that of an iPhone 6 Plus. This was supposed to be a British Airlines flight, but it really was an American flight. I expected to be on a BA aircraft, which would have probably been upgraded."
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "Had a airline steward named Scott that was very pleasant and nice all throughout the flight."
Cons: "The plane was late/delayed going from Dallas to Colorado and the plane going from Colorado back to Dallas was late/delayed as well ."
Cons: "Despite paying 5 months in advance, couldn't check in online or reserve seats without paying extra. AA customer service told me there were no more "complimentary " seats!! Very tight legroom in cabin."
Pros: "Did reschedule our flight before we left which was helpful -Group 4 but at least we could get home."
Cons: "Paid for seats closer to front to get off for connecting flight. Waste of money as flight was delayed 90 minutes trying to fix the water system which the slow response maintenance crew never fixed. Ended up using Sani-wipes and had no coffee - seemed ok for a relatively short flight and half full plane. 90 minutes to make the decision to just go on resulting in many rescheduled flights."
Pros: "Got pretty much what I expected from economy."
Cons: "Lack of planning for carry on bags."
Pros: "Flight in air"
Cons: "Take offs and landings"
Cons: "They would not move me from next to the smokey 50'year old next to me. that's fine. But they told me I couldn't tell her to bathe and quit smoking. O well. I'm not gonna hold it against them for stinky old lady"
Pros: "We chose the seats with 6 inches more legroom - well worth it! We slept comfortably on the flight."
Cons: "It's always difficult getting comfortable with a stranger ext to you, but overall it was a nice quick flight."
