Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I got bumped from the flight. They overbooked. Three people were let on after me."
Cons: "There was a problem with their system, so they didn’t have a record of my checking -in. But, my email said I had checked in - just wouldn’t give me a seat number. They put me up in an old hotel that I would not recommend, so I can fly tomorrow."
Cons: "They tend to be very sensationalist with the people sitting on the exit road. It would be nice to have some food for the people that are vegetarian, something; just don’t ignore them and continue walking. This happened in both flights. Not even chips. Nothing."
Pros: "crew was excellent as ell as the counter personal"
Cons: "Not entertainment at all"
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: "It was a comfortable satisfying flight"
Pros: "On time, the service"
Cons: "The food is not goof"
Pros: "Was a.fast and.good trip....good!!"
Pros: "that 2 people didnt show up and was able to spread out and sit in a different seat."
Cons: "that they ran out of food by the middle of the plane. I was only offered food I was allergic to."
Pros: "I liked 2 free checked bags. I liked that the flight was uneventful and on time."
Cons: "The staff while professional seems very busy and preoccupied. This airline has a small presense in Ft. Lauderdale and didn’t open for check in for several hours after I arrived. The kioks were not operational. My husband was flying in from Tucson on American Airlines and his flight was delayed. He was to join us on our international flight home. I tried to alert the staff well in advance that he would be arriving late but would be there in time to actually get on the flight. The staff was not helpful with this matter at all. They did nothing to accomodate these special circumstances that were beyond our control. Even finding a staff member that was available for me to talk to was a challenge. My husband’s flight arrived at the airport an hour before takeoff but nothing was done to try to get him on our flight home even though I had explained the problem 2 hours before that. As a result, he was not able to travel home with us on Copa and had to buy a ticket home on JetBlue. We will not choose Copa again."

Cons: "Travel was cancelled by travel agency. Never received notification until travel day."

Pros: "La puntualidad para abordar y la llegada a mi destino, buen avión."
Cons: "No nos facilitaron audífonos, la comida no fue muy buena y no encontré espacio para mi equipaje de mano, la política de la aerolínea debería ser que el pasajero pueda subir con un equipaje de mano o una mochila, ya que suben con ambas, mas fundas de compras y ocupan todos los espacios para el equipaje de mano."
Pros: "fast boarding nice and helpful crew"
Pros: "I flew business class and the cabin crew were great. The cabin was clean, tray table and entertainment system worked as expected. Cabin crew were friendly and checked after my needs. Meal choice was broad and tasted very good. Beer selection was very limited on all my Copa flights from the US to South America and back. I love their new 737-800 aircraft."
Cons: "There wasn't much not to like but I would have to say the in-flight entertainment movies could have been better. i.e. wider selection. The entertainment screen sometimes performs a little slow."

Pros: "excelente!!!..gracias mejor no hay!!."

Pros: "Served snacks and drinks on short flight"
Cons: "Our luggage did not come on this 45 minute flight despite it being direct. And we were one of multiple families with this issue. It appears to be a common issue with the airline."
Pros: "My experience with Copa is that they are efficient yet customer friendly and changing planes in Panamá on trips to South America is usually quite convenient."
Cons: "Copa has a tendency to leave the "Fasten seatbelt" sign on for long periods of time, even when there is little to no turbulence. This makes it difficult to know when to move around which is unfortunate on a 6+ hour flight."
Pros: "Good service. Has entertaining and food was not bad. Service is friendly. We had a small delay and the captain was communicative and tried to bring us faster to our destination."
Cons: "Bathrooms are super small"
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: "Friendlier and more attentive inflight crew."
Cons: "Seats and aisles were too small. The plane in general was to small and uncomfortable."

Cons: "The Panama crew only cared about the groups and did not care so much on your reason for anything. They were more disorganized and unfriendly."
Pros: "I give Copa Air a big fat zero on price. I missed my connection flight because my first flight was delayed and there was no more flights that night so they said come back tommorow. 8 went back the next day and all flights were canceled because of a hurricane but copa refused to let me on the return flight home i had already laod for!!! Horrible rip off"

Cons: "Flight was cramped no space on airplane shoulder to shoulder with the person next to you"
Cons: "They dindt let my whole family of 4 board the plane, because we were supposed late to check in 2 hours prior to the plane leaving, the ordeal with the stuff and discussions back and forth git us exausted and we left the airport ."
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "The food was good, a small snack and drinks. The crew is friendly"
Cons: "They could renew the fabric of the seats, and carpets. there is not entertainment offer"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight due to some technical difficulties. They told us to wait, while there were no other plane to replace. Then ( only in spanish) they announced that there is no more flights this day and we need to go to the Copa counter to rebook our flights. everything was super unorganized. I waited 6 hours to get my new flight. It was a mess. Never again i am tlying Copa Airlines"
Cons: "Check in very slow, not enough agents. It was an international flight so I understand that there are extra steps that must be taken. I was in line way too long, and when finally checked in was advised to run to the gate where I waited 30 minutes to board. One slow down in my checking in was that I was one way on Copa, and was returning on United. All I had for the United flight was a 6 digit code. That upset the agents and resulted in conferences between all the agents. Looking at my passport, looking at me, looking at 6 letters. Lots of head shaking but finally letting me check in."
