Cons: "Make sure to repeat announcements in English if possible for non-Spanish speaking passengers"
Pros: "We never too this flight as Avianca cancelled our original flight. Your partner in Airfare.com was absolutely zero help in helping us resolve the issue. They told me I had to contact Avianca directly to resolve the matter. The only flights they had available were on different days."
Cons: "I am still trying to get a refund from the airline for a flight that they knew I was never going to take. I will never use any sort of third-party service for booking anything again. What is the point using it if it will be zero help when I did not cause the changes that occurred??"
Pros: "Confortable flght"
Pros: "My seatmate was the only good thing on this flight."
Cons: "Boarding left a majority of passengers standing on the ramp for 10+ minutes. Business boarding seems non-existent. Lavatory had no facial tissue and ran out of tp. Service was meh. Hand towels were heated up wet wipes. Hardware was ancient. Enforcing safety rules was not a priority."

Cons: "53 min delayed"
Pros: "Service is good and they provide meals, which is always a plus."

After booking 4 direct flights from New York to Barranquilla to Cartagena to Medellin and back to New York, only one of which was through bogota, I got 3 notifications that all my flights were now going through bogota with 3.5 hr layovers! Worst airline ever."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable. They cancelled my original flight and gave me 2 stops. When I tried to call customer service, I waited in the phone for 5 hrs and no one ever picked up.

Cons: "Food on COPA is terrible."
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."
