Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Service and comfort"
Cons: "Had an issue with my passport and the manager at the check in counter was rude and not helpful."
Cons: "Good service"
Cons: "Copa check-in in Chicago was awful, and it wasn’t just for my family and me. The manger and several employees were rude and seemed clueless about what they were doing. I shouldn’t be surprised that none of our luggage arrived because of the unorganized check-in but it just added to the frustration."
Cons: "Food on COPA is terrible."
Pros: "Online check in was great! Time saver! Left right on time! The food was good. Female captain! woot woot! :)"
Cons: "Night flights are hard. I couldn't sleep comfortably on the seat.. I've flown other airlines and seats are more comfortable. They didn't provide a blanket or pillow. Kept constantly waking up and felt tired when they served breakfast. No screens with entertainment for each seat available. Had a bit of a hard time with decompression, I don't know if it has to do with the aircraft, but I had never experienced discomfort while landing. My luggage was damaged."
Pros: "There is nothing to like because this flight never happened."
Cons: "Instead of going Chicago -> Panama City I was routed to Chicago --> Newark --> Bogota --> Cartagena. This means instead of arriving 8pm, I would now be arriving 8am the following day (I actually arrived after 1pm, so all in, it was about 30 hours of travel experience). At the request of the United agent in Minneapolis, I got in Customer Service line in Chicago to have my bags properly transferred to my connecting flights. After an hour in line, the agent proved to me by showing me the screen she was working on, that my bags would be routed directly to my final destination. She was confused why I was told to even come in line, so, great, another hour wasted."
Pros: "Change flight without notifying me"
Cons: "Change flight without notification"

Pros: "Very friendly service and very helpful even though there is a language difference, they were great in making me feel comfortable."

Cons: "Not a thing."
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: "Overall the service was very smooth, enjoyable flight"
Cons: "The space for waiting for boarding at Panama airport is tight but i believe they are in the process of building a new terminal"

Cons: "There weren’t good options on food, and even it’s a 5 hours flight there was not internet or screen on the chairs."
Pros: "Crew was courteous, and very polite."
Pros: "Wouldn’t let me on the flight."
Cons: "After checking in via the mobile app, the front desk said they didn’t have me registered therefore didn’t know I was coming despite being at the gate well before the flight departed. Additionally, Kayak made it extremely difficult to consult with the issue. Very dissatisfied with the whole experience."
Pros: "Short flight and thankfully I slept a bit."
Cons: "The stewardesses just say in their area. Never offered extra coffee or drinks. No snacks. Food was pathetic."
Pros: "Friendly service, food and drink included, and free luggage. Seats had limited leg room, but otherwise comfortable. Would select this airline again!"
Pros: "Seats didn't recline, entertainment was poor."
Pros: "The food and service"
Cons: "Maybe more entertainment for a 5 hour flight"
Pros: "My trip went really smooth with no delays. They were able to switch my seat to be closer to my friends that were flying with me with no hassle at all. I was surprise that they provided food on the trip, I have been in different airlines that don’t provide anything except for a drink. I would for sure use Copa Airlines for future South American trips"
Cons: "Only thing I might of dislike is that they were using an older plane and the tv quality was not good"
Pros: "The crew and staff were wonderful and professional"
Pros: "Nothing. Even when it's the cheapest flight, th insignificant price difference vs. other airlines doesn't compensate the awful experience"
