Staff were also super nice and accommodating, flight was smoothe. Oh...and seats leaned back quite a bit more than on other airlines i've used in the past."
Cons: "I needed to change the date,,,,but no answer at Avianca....so I ended up wasting the full amount I paid.NEVER AGAIN do I use KAYAK!"

Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "massive delay in the counter"
Cons: "Check in luggage has change, there should be a notification of how many luggages you are permitted prior to purchasing or be able to purchase extra if needed prior to arriving at airport"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight THREE times!!! It was awfull, frustrating and I lost my connection filght to Lima on the scheduled day."
Cons: "The time in the check in Line was horrible, why the people who made your check in on line wait around at airport, more that the people don't have check in? It is absurd!!"
Pros: "The crew where prepared and always in a good mood. Regular food."
Cons: "The airplanes where not clean - the seats smelled. We had 6hs flight and they didn't provided blankets, there where no personalized entertainment to the passengers. They have better aircrafts but this one was the worst international flight experience that I had."
Cons: "How is it possible that in a 5 hours flight I was not able to watch tv?!!!! I asked help three times to the flight attendants and they didn't even come to my seat to check my problem, I had to walk to where they were three times to ask them for help. They only said " we are going to reboot the tv" that didn't work at all. I was completely miserable and bored. They didn't help me; they never come to my place to check if the problem was solved or not."
Cons: "Crowded gates at boarding area. Long bus ride to aircraft."
Pros: "Nothing. This airline is awful in every way imaginable."
Cons: "We booked tickets to Costa Rica with Copa and they just changed our flights to two days later than the booking. They didn’t even bother to inform us of the change we only found out because we booked through Kayak and they let us know. Apparently Copa expects you to frequently check your booking just in case they’ve changed anything and don’t feel the need to inform their customers of any changes they make. Then we were told we could get a Copa voucher to use for other Copa flights for having to cancel our booking and rebook with another airline as a 48 hour change to our flight made flying with Copa not doable for us. But the website kept telling us we had a voucher that was sent to our email but despite repeated attempts it never came through. And spent hours trying to get through to someone on the phone to sort it out with no success ever getting through. My advice. NEVER EVER FLY WITH COPA."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "On time excellent attention perfectly clean"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Yes"
Pros: "Yes. Everything was extraordinary well."
Pros: "Crew not a smile"
Cons: "Need to tv or some view for anything"
Pros: "The crew was very good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I was surprised that they served two very nice meals on our flights."
Cons: "The entertainment system had some issues. The headphone that were distributed have a double and single plug to attach to the armrest. Since the armrest had two femal plugs in it then I assumed that the headphone required the two male plugs. That didn’t work. It wasn’t until much later that I tried the single plug from the headphone but that only worked when jiggling it around to make it connect properly. Would have preferred one of the new systems that allow you to stream a movie of your own choice to your own device."
Pros: "Very efficient and nice crew. Early arrival in Miami."
Cons: "Not enough seats in boarding area. Plus, late boarding made it tough to stand for so long in Panama City."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Amazing crew."
Cons: "Not even a 30 min episode of Friends :'("
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Entretenimiento y comida"
Pros: "Routine flight"
Cons: "Boarding occurred before schedule, however we remained on plane past the scheduled departure. The airport was not busy at all. So cannot surmise why we stayed so long on the plane before take-off."
Cons: "There was a prolonged delay on arrival in Panama, as the gate was apparently in use. They set up stairs (on the runway?) and they transported us by bus to the airport. On the connecting flight to Guatemala, they began boarding an hour before departure, only to wait on a bus to be taken to the aircraft. Apparently the airline doesn't only double book seats on flights, but on Gates on arrival and departure as well? Aside from this particular gripe, the crews were pleasant and the airfare was a relative bargain, so all in all not a bad option IMO."
Pros: "All the steps were efficient and friendly from the ground to the air. The nice attention of the COPA air personnel was also appreciated"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "I almost lost my fight cause they change the gate and did not alert or announce it.this has happened numerous ti.e with copa airline and because of that I dont think I will be using them anymore"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "I was quite disappointed that I was never informed that in order to have a vegetarian meal it had to be ordered ahead of time and the only meal options both were meat. So rather than offering something different which I'm assuming was not even available I didn't get anything to eat. Wouldn't it make more sense to have 2 ... or even one non meat option rather than 2 with meat considering meat eaters will eat things lacking meat while vegitarian cannot."
Pros: "puntuality"
Cons: "I could't make my web checking, some problem in the webside. The sandwich was very bad."
Cons: "The ticket counter in Managua is unlawfully closing flights when overbooked and telling passengers they were late. Then they charged change of ticket costs for next day flight and did not provide overnight stay. They filled up flight then all agents leave counter so passengers have no one to check in. Then they came back and said it was too late and flight was closed and passenger’s fault. Then they said because bilked through Kayak/Justfly, they said next flight was not available and had to leave on last flight out of Managua the following day. This is unlawful and outrageous activity."
Pros: "old plans seats are not comfortable no power for charging, small business class yet they ran out of a food.. copa airline lounge at Panama city is a zoo no place to seat and people were setting on the floor. useless."
Pros: "Drinks included. Food blah"
Pros: "The crew were kind and meals were served accordingly!"
Cons: "Some of the people on the plane were too much for me, but the staff were on it without me needing to complain."
Pros: "Great food, good quality taste."
Pros: "Amabilidad"
Cons: "Muy atentos"
Pros: "Attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Food, movie options were bad"
Pros: "Las atenciones son buenas"
Cons: "La comida no es buena para un vuelo de 6 o 7 horas"
Pros: "Like the Vesel, confort and crew where on point They where only airline that actually , gave something to eat at no cost , an example of what we used to have with Americans main airlines"
Cons: "Honestly it was our best flight , You should take Note ant get back to basics !!! Sometimes in most cases good service outlast, values and shortages, I️ believe that American Airlines should strive to take and maintain the lead as the leaders we are in the world"
Cons: "the seats were old. No entertainment was available."
Pros: "Flight was on time , food was good."
Cons: "The desk attendant tried to bump me off the flight and after a long argument and vociferous complaints on my end I was given a seat on the flight which I had already paid for. After getting a seat for the first leg of the flight I realized I had been put on standbye for the second leg of the flight which meant I would likely get stuck in Panama city. I went back to the desk and after another long argument I was given a seat. I was offered no compensation and they acted like they were doing me a favor by giving me a seat on the flight. When I sat down and asked the girl next to me how her day was going she told me she had had the same expernece as me but becuase she had complained less she had been bumped off of both her flights that she had purchased 6 months in advance without an explanation. Later on the flight from Panama city to san francisco which is a 7 hour flight, Copa airlines has security set up so that you cannot bring any liquids (even water you buy at the airport). This meant the passengers had a 7 hour flight without water. The crewd came through the cabin 2 maybe 3 times with drinks but this is not nearly sufficient for a 7 hour flight if you cant bring your own water..."
Cons: "Pocas alternativas de entretenimiento, particularmente películas."
Pros: "Copa is great. I think they provide better service than many of the north American carriers."
Cons: "Didn't like the extra security screening in panama. We didn't leave the controlled area and still had to go thru security. what gives?"
Pros: "FOOD & STAFF. Smooth landing."
Pros: "flight attendants were very courteous and helpful."
Pros: "Short plane ride"
Cons: "Second plane from panama to Costa Rica, the crew embarressed me and my friend and I will never fly on that airline again if Sandie Machida ever works on it. She is the ruddiest and most unprofessional flight attendant and needs extra lessons on costumer service and how she hosts guests."
Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Copa provided us with nice food and drinks and were very courteous with passengers"
Cons: "Eventhough it was a 2 hour flight, I would have preferred to hear some music, for which nobody provided us with nothing, nor could we watch any movies."
Pros: "Loved the customer service loved the fact that they actually feed you lunch and dinner. With alchol included. Whole experience was perfect"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "I've flown Copa many times before and it's generally good for low-cost price but this time was horrible, probably because our first time with new baby. First, there was unexpected shock of having to pay $300 at gate for ticket for the baby, even though she is 4 months and sat on my lap the whole time. Never heard of charging for that and we had to pay % of roundtrip ticket cost right there and then. Second, they don't allow early boarding for families with small children. Third, and finally, on the trip back they also suddenly announced a "no checking boxes policy" which I had also never heard of. We had to take a baby swing out of its box, dismantle it, and carry on a large part of it. A total hassle and crew was not very understanding. Definitely think twice about flying Copa if you have kids."
Pros: "The flight was very smooth from boarding to landing- everything and everyone was great!"
Cons: "Everything was great, no complaints here!"
Pros: "Great in flight service"
Cons: "Not so friendly people at front counter"
Pros: "Overall, it was fine"
Cons: "I had issues to check in due to the lack of return ticket"
Pros: "I really like how attentive the staff was."
Cons: "Before departing Chicago, I requested vegan food. When I arrived at the airport, nothing had been requested. The staff in Chicago told me they couldn't promise to get me food to Quito, Ecuador, but that they had put in the request for my returning flights. When returning, I spoke with the staff in Ecuador & come to find out that no request was ever put in. There were only notes of my initial inquiry about requesting vegan meals. Fortunately, the staff was great and were able to get me a vegan meal and told me that they put in a request for my connecting flight. When getting to the gate for my connecting flight the following day, the staff tells me that there is no request for a vegan meal. They were great and were able to get me one, but it was a bit annoying to have to keep dealing with the same issue on all four flights, especially, when I had spoken with someone prior to my 1st flight."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "I liked how helpful the people at check in were, how comfortable the flight was and the fact that food and drinks are still offered, beat part was the movie options. Would without a doubt choose this airline again"
Pros: "Flight on time, pleasant staff"
Pros: ":("
Cons: "We got to the airport 2 hours early and they had us line up in a Very slow moving line. When we finally reached the front an hour had gone by and the customer service rep then said we must have an exit flight from Guyana to get our boarding pass. This is the first we'd heard of this although we had researched visa requirements, etc for Guyana. We stepped out of line and quickly booked a flight on our phone, but when we tried to jump back in again the attendant made us wait in line again (a shorter one, but not smart considering the time crunch at that point. Finally we got to the front again and the attendant was very slow about entering our information. Then suddenly she calmly noted, "oh, it's too late to check you in, you can't make this flight." ... We were upset to say the least and after pestering her further about a reimbursement she said we would have to wait until she dealt with all the other customers (a long line of an hour or more) and that she couldn't put us on the next few flights because they were full. Finally she let us borrow her phone so that WE could call customer service and try to deal with it. They of course gave us the run around and we still don't have a reimbursement and will likely never book with Copa airlines again. Hopefully after a few more phone calls we can eventually get reimbursed. :("
Pros: "Always like flying copa. Easy and the people are friendly."
Cons: "Cramped. I wish there would have been a second beverage service"
Pros: "All went very smoothly"
Pros: "It was the best flight in years!"
Cons: "Attention is excellent"
