My review is for Panamá to NYC…please see previous note.
The flight was delayed so we missed the San Francisco connection. Copa america declined any responsibility and refused to cover our 24h stay or help us get on another flight. Not only that, we were told to stay at airport so our Covid tests aren’t voided. Then the airport staff treated us terribly. I absolutely do no recommend this company to anyone. They should be reported.
Landing was not good. It felt hard

Cons: "Did not like the food"
Pros: "The flight from Panama to San Francisco was very good. The only complaint I have is the food, which is too simple and it could taste a little better.

Cons: "outdated seats, video system, food"
Cons: "NOT GOOD NOT RECOMMENDED BAD CREW"
Pros: "-Nice little breakfast meal after takeoff -More legroom than most coach seats -Efficient crew"

Cons: ". When we arrived in Panama we were forced to do security again at our gate which meant we had to throw away the 4 dollar bottle of water we had just purchased only to be stuck in an area with no bathrooms until our flight."
Cons: "Seats are too small, my legs did not fit. Seat did not recline."
Cons: "Check in in panama is always the perfect definition of incompetence"
Pros: "Super friendly crew."
Pros: "The welcome abord"
Cons: "I remember once they asked who wanted stay and spend a night in Panamá, I accepted the offer in Panama, but when the flight that was in my regular schedule was about to leave, they told me that I needed to abord because it was no possible to stay and I made big movement with my luggage and they putted back my luggage in the plane. That was one of the bad moments I experienced with Copa once."
Pros: "I have not flown on such a nice well organized airline like Copa! And they actually serve really good food."

Pros: "Flight on time and crew with an excellent service level"
Cons: "The check-in process is not that easy, and impossible to make from a Smartphone or a Tablet"
I was forced to fly on Copa rather than Avianca because they did not have any other flights to Bogotá. How is it possible that a Colombian airline could not offer another flight to the capital city of Colombia? Ridiculous

Cons: "Extremely messy boarding, confusing guidance, no social distance. I suggest you board from the back of the plane, up to the front, after accommodating special needs passengers. Thank you!"
Pros: "The crew was realy nice"

Cons: "Everything perfect . Marcia was very professional and very helpful person boarding at the gate . Employees like her makes the difference . Tks"
Cons: "Time - delayed twice - missed connection"
Pros: "time was OK"
Cons: "Starting by the fact that if the system was actually working we could’ve done check in in the machine, and cut the 2 and half hours of line for check in and luggage drop off. The check in crew was not efficient at all, they would take 10 to 20 min to every costumer, no organization and poor trainin."
Cons: "The seats are close together so there's not as much legroom as other airlines I've flown in Brazil. There was no in flight entertainment. The snacks were mediocre at best. The gate was changed at the last minute so it was a little confusing."

Cons: "There was no USB not outlet charger. The touch screen was not working well, the console was loose and the movie options were all outdated."

Cons: "Give snacks"
Pros: "Not a whole lot."
Cons: "Everything. The flight was delayed by 4 hours. There was no food in first class. The luggage was put on an earlier flight ans delivered to a different gate. The person handling luggage in Gate A was rude. We had to go to the other gate at 1am to pickup our luggage."
Cons: "Over two hours delayed. Had to carry on carry off my bags that were heavy. Messed up my schedule. Had to incur extra charges at San Diego destination due to the inconvenience."
Pros: "On time flight."
Cons: "Security was overzealous. I didn't know the standards changed for how many ounces you could carry over three days. The normal ounces of liquid was no more than 4.0 ounces. I had no problem going through security with that amount of spray deodorant flying from IAW, Dulles. DFW airport security says the limit is no more than 3.4 ounces. So they kept my harmless deodorant. I need TSA to get on the same sheet of music worldwide. People don't have time or money to waste having to deal with different TSA standards everywhere they go."
Pros: "The crew was cordial and attentive"
Cons: "I understand it was a short flight, but don’t force me to buy either a movie or TV show. At least give me some free options."
Pros: "Well we enjoyed the crew on the United flight, the food was terrible, and the entertainment options or below average. In the end we both hurt our neck trying to watch TV on her phone. Other airlines at least offer you entertainment options that do not result in you having neck pain afterwards"
Cons: "I booked my flight months in advance and paid for the leg room in the emergency row. I get a smaller plane and cramp seating. Wasn't sure why this happened and why I wasn't compensated for what I was charged for. Wondering if I need to change my regular air carrier now. I don't like small planes!"
Pros: "That it was over"
Cons: "Dallas to Newark worst flight I ever had crew was rude they did not control the guest well they pretty much let them do whatever they wanted not safe."
Cons: "Everything was trerrible on this flight! We were delayed from our first connecting flight out to SF to LA and we're put on a different flight connecting to Houston to get us home sooner. We were told by the gentleman at the check in that our correct boarding passes with our seats sitting all together would be given to us at the boarding desk. That was the biggest mistake ever to take this flight because we were then delayed 3 more hrs! Not only that but when I approached the next gentleman at the boarding desk in Houston he was super rude! He was yelling at me when I told them that "they in Dallas,the worker at the check in" told me to get my boarding passes in Houston. He kept yelling saying "there was nothing he could do that he could do that he didn't know who THEY were but that I was talking to him now and that's why he is saying" I tried explaining to him that I just wanted to make sure I got in the right flight home because this is what I was told to do by the employee in Dallas. Not only that but our connecting flight to Houston was horrible! The flight attendant (the male) was very very rude!!! He also was yelling at my niece and nephew when we were trying to put the carry on bags in the compartment. And telling us we could have anything underneath the seat when clearly we could have our personal item underneath. Overall we had the worst experience with United and will never again fly with them! I understand delays may happen but there's no need for the employees to be so rude. so much for their customers service!"
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "Sat on plane for two hours after we boarded waiting to take off"
Cons: "There were no tvs on the diet flight you had to use your own device. On the second flight you had to pay to watch tv. It's free to watch movies in American Airlines!"
Pros: "I get a refund"
Cons: "Getting to the airport and being told you are not in the system to get your tickets when you give all the information to the counter after you paid in advance and have to take the grey hound instead so I am pissed off at this air line and going to let my friends and family know how I was treated there"
Pros: "At all points in the process from check-in to exiting the plan, the staff was quick to step in and help with direction to keep everyone moving."
Cons: "A teacher was put into tears at the gate agent desk prior to boarding because she had a purse and a shopping bag but had a ticket that only allowed one bag that could not be a full roller board. I did see her eventually board wiping her tears away with a single bag, so she either paid the extra $50 or they figured something out."
Pros: "Friendly staff Easy boarding"
Cons: "The flight had no snacks. The seats werent comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment unit did not work."
Cons: "I wish my departure wasn't delayed by about 2 hours, but that's not the airline's fault."
Pros: "Round trip from logan to dallas for $230 was unmatchable."
Cons: "With radio communications issues on the plane cancelling my 6:30 flight my travel day grew about 6 hours longer then expected. But with that said as an auto mechanic i know this stuff happens all the time and its a head ache for everyone."
Pros: "The service from the staff to fix the issue created by bad information and they were super nice about the situation. My flight out to visit my son and his family was great ."
Cons: "In united club I was told to report to flight gate at 1715. I missed my flight because of bad information. This issue was corrected by some super nice employees st the gate counter. I've always gone to the club when have longer layover times I pay the day fee but this caused my time back home to be closer to midnight not the before 2200. To then top off the night I get home and my luggage was damaged. Just a really long and troubling trip back home."
Cons: "The was delayed three times without explanation."
Pros: "No issues"
Cons: "I was between two heavy set people and could barely move."
Pros: "I liked that my flights were on time! We even arrived earlier."
Cons: "The woman when boarding the plane in Chicago was very rude. Crew is not friendly! We received one glass of soda, they do not give you the whole can and one small snack. In Delta they give you the whole can and they give you 3 snacks. If I have a choice I will not fly United again."
Pros: "Nice comfortable seating."
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "Very smooth and comfortable flight."
Pros: "Flight was great after sitting on tarmac In dallas for an hour.?missed my connection by seconds... I would have thought they could have held the plane for 5 min"

Cons: "Could not get the entertainment app to work."
Cons: "Packed in like sardines. This is not comfortable."
Pros: "The snacks"
Cons: "It was a really noisy flight because a little boy was crying in the back"
Cons: "The flight was delayed numerous times. I lost my connection twice. At the end, they transferred me to American Airlines. I spent 10 hours in the airport and they didn't even give me a voucher to eat. It was a terrible and stressful day for me."
Cons: "The layover was quite short and I had to get from one terminal to another. Luckily, the directions I received were spot on and I arrived to my terminal just in time."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly"
Cons: "Pay for ticket and couldn't get a seat assignment. Had to go to the kiosk before my flight and try to get a seat. It processed for 5 minutes while I waited thinking it was stuck. Finally it told me there were no seats available unless I wanted to pay for upgrade. Gee I thought a seat came with the price of a ticket. Then there was no shoulder room in the seating and I am an average sized person. There was leg room because it was an exit row. Then they tried to sell me a round-trip ticket that was more costly than buying individual tickets. What a scam."
Pros: "Not one thing."
Cons: "I chose to fly UA back from a trip to Fort Worth because your price was cheaper than the airline I normally use. Boy do I know why! You have the rudest staff I have ever encountered. My day started out at 6:30am with one of your staff members rudely telling me I had to check my bag, which met all of the dimension requirements you put in place, because two notches on the back side of the carry on did not allow it to completely slide into the display. This women waited until you were halfway through the security line to call you back and make you measure the suitcase. So then you had to walk back through a long line and find yourself even FURTHER back in the line to get through security. She was so unprofessional- not compassionate, unpleasant attitude, and was all about making sure as many people as possible had to pay the extra $25 for a checked bag. The person I flew with is a military wife and you would not honor the free checked bag because her husband was not on the trip and this policy was not included anywhere on her flight documents. Again, the "customer service" reps were rude to her about this and she had to pay the $25 to check her bag. You do not believe in offering quality customer service or ensuring that we have a pleasant experience, you want our money and look to us as an opportunity to make a dollar. Never again!!!"
Pros: "did not occur"
Cons: "flight did not occur."
Cons: "My son ( a minor) was held over in Denver airport for over 12 hours because of delays and cancellations. Not once did your United crew or service workers offer him a meal voucher. This is absolutely wrong. This was my son's first flight alone and he also could not find any venders open to buy food. I will NEVER fly United again and will tell all friends and relatives about your inconsideration to minor passengers who are too shy to ask for help.!"
Pros: "Seats and leg room were acceptable for economy seats."
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work right on most devices. Finally got some of it to work on one cell phone."
Pros: "Professional service and on time departure"
Pros: "Pilot was wonderful and did a fabulous job landing in the windy conditions."
Cons: "The flight attendant was dismissive and rude. The united terminal at DFW was terrible. Dirty, old and just plain disgusting. Craft was a bit run down and dirty as well"
Cons: "No communication to those of us with tight connections. No communication to the flights we were connecting to so that maybe they could hold the door open maybe 5-10 minutes longer."
