And when I pressed it again and waved to him, he rolled his eyes before coming to hear my very valid question. Even the person sitting next to me commented on his eye rolling reaction. Was it because I was an older Non-white woman? He was a Non-white man with a Carribean accent. And I was sitting in the premium section. This guy needs some more training."

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."

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: "Flight time didn’t feel long at all. Great service"
Pros: "But... when I purchased a tkt online. For some reason the name on last ticket I purchased was on the next COPA ticket. A 300.00 purchase. Because COPA does not change ticket holders names it was a total loss. I bought the ticket for a student in Cali to come and meet me in Panama City I couldn't afford to buy a second ticket so Victor stayed home. Every other Airline charges a minimal fee to make changes on a ticket so now there is a credit at Copa Airlines for a person that will never ever use it.... such a waste of time and money.

Cons: "No TSA pre-check, desorganized and absurd line to check-in"
