Cons: "My trip to lima was a beautiful flight. The staff was very profession."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful."

Cons: "Cleanliness of bathrooms. But it’s the passengers to blame . I felt like people did not clean after themselves"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "They had to change the plane we took on the flight which left several people without a seat. We made it on, only because we were traveling with a baby otherwise it would have added to an already awful travel day."

Pros: "Panama uses American dollars so no need to get extra cash to use during layover. The flights are always quick out of Panama."

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: "Copa airline is a terrible airline. Not sure how they still in business. The ticketing agents were extremely rude and show a great deal of careless towards their customers. I arrived had already checked in, i had no luggage i simply had a backpack and a carry on bag.She told me that my plane was gone 1.5hr before departure. She went in the system type customer missed flight. What she did was deceptive, unethical, and of course should be illegal. I still believe that flight was overbooked, copaairline had to cancel my previous flight due to the weather. When i contacted copa airline directly nothing they could do they said. I was advised by copaairline to wait 3-4 hrs to reactivate my ticket. I was told specifically by a gentleman that there was a flight boarding at 12am. I waited at the airport for about 8hrs to find out there wasno 12am flight that day. I cant make this up people, i have never in my entire life experience that level of stress and anxiety. I want my money back!!!"
