Airline reviews

Pros: "On time quick service. Clean and comfortable aircraft."

Pros: "Vuelo tranquilo y todo a su hora"

Cons: "Copa did not allow me to board plane with setvice animal. Stating paperwork is not acceptable for travel to Peru. I bought tickets on avianca and traveled to Peru and had no issues entering Peru with paperwork. Also copa lost luggage for 3 days spent 3500 on copa and received nothing in return"

Cons: "Although I pre-coordinated bringing my service animal on the flight, copa denied service and my family was not allowed to board the plane. Copa stated my paperwork was not acceptable to Peru. I bought tickets on Avianca and traveled with my service animal and had no issues entering Peru."

Pros: "what a difference from the flight crew. Much more attentive and responsive to our flight requests."
Cons: "This flight was better. Short flight and very attentive crew. I figure the seat selection on mobile app would be my choice next time."

Cons: "The entertainment was too expensive"

Pros: "Space in the aircraft from MCO to Panamá"
Cons: "To be lied to mos of all, to be delayed, to feel manipulated and that communication from crew to guests and between airports is the worst! Least efficient company after AmericanAirlines"

Pros: "fast boarding nice and helpful crew"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Airplane crew was friendly. The flight departed on time."
Cons: "We traveled with an infant who sat on our laps. We were never asked about the infant traveling until we went to check in at the desk and were told we needed to pay taxes for the baby at a rate of 10% of the cost of the ticket. But because we were doing it on the day of the flight, 10% was almost $200! We did not receive good customer service from staff, who simply told us we "should have known to investigate this." We have never been asked to do this when flying with a baby before! This was after an hour and a half of already waiting to check in our bags. We were waiting so long and dealing with this issue for so long that we almost missed the flight! A terrible experience. Also, the web check in line took even longer than the line of people who had not checked in online beforehand! It was so slow, it added to us almost missing our flight. It was a waste of time to check in online, especially since they gave us new boarding passes when we checked our bags in anyway. We also had trouble finding both of our reservations, even though we booked them together as a family, so we ended up with seats that were not together. When we had an issue, we were given an attitude by the staff checking us in."

Pros: "The boarding in the crew or fine"
Cons: "The entertainment was almost 0, the chicken sandwich was horrible."

Pros: "I liked the snacks and drinks provided on each flight. It was very organized and clean. The staff was friendly and attentive. This commodity was better than other airlines I have used."
Cons: "You get what you pay for-less leg room and 1 screen per 3 rows."

Pros: "The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. It seems like everyone spoke English and Spanish. Free drinks. A fine flight."
Cons: "Not a thing."

Cons: "Good service"

Pros: "Service and comfort was great, on boarding was pretty fast too"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Efficient check in and boarding process. Great time for connection."
Cons: "The plane was dirty"

Pros: "The temperature was awfully warm. I sweated the whole flight while a baby across the aisle from me screamed the entire time. I understand the airline can’t keep babies from crying but the AC should work. On a positive note the flight arrived early."

Cons: "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is an awful movie, but that’s not your fault, I blame the cast & Directer. ;)"

Pros: "Good service and attention"

Pros: "Crew did not know which dinner was chicken or beef."
Cons: "Tiny TV screens"

Cons: "Liked everything!"

Pros: "x"
Cons: "x"

Pros: "Tiny chairs"
Cons: "Tiny chairs"

Cons: "How crowded I felt. Both flights I had an aisle seat but it felt like a middle seat. The people in the middle didn't give me much personal space."

Pros: "Pilot was magnificent."
Cons: "Seats werent reclinable.Empanada was great but not compaied to the previous rice and chiken."

Pros: "As usual I am very happy with Copa's service, etc... but upon returning to Orlando. The pilot had to do a go around and I was later told that he attempted to land the wrong direction. We passed through Immigration fine, but after recovering our luggage, we were forced to give the luggage back and wait again at the carousel back at the main terminal to recover it again. Has never happened before."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "I did not get the seat I booked"

Pros: "atencion de la aereomozas fue buena."
Cons: "el emparedado fue terrible. desastrozo."

Pros: "See first review"
Cons: "See first review"

Cons: "Transfer time un Panamá was Too short"

Pros: "A very good flight except for the meal. The seats were comfortable and the crew friendly. The connecting time in Panama City was spot-on and worked like clock-work. We deboarded and walked down a couple of gates and were boarding our flight to Lima in 15 minutes. I would recommend Copa at anytime. Our price was incredible and we got SO much more than we paid for which is unusual today."
Cons: "I was spoiled on an earlier leg of our flight with the selection of entertainment. On this flight there was only one in-flight selection played on the various monitors."

Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Terrible movie choice. Old equipment. Flight was freezing cold and no blankets provided. Uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "everything"

Cons: "The crew at the gate was extremely rude, didn't even called the flight other than once announcing we were gonna start boarding. Then I have 2 infants and when I asked about priority seating, you would have thought I asked her for a free flight because I got such a nasty response, not only me but she yelled at a guy in a wheelchair! Because he wanted to go in front of others to get himself settled (he had all the right in the world to do so) I honestly wanted to say a few kind words to this girl but I didn't."

Pros: "Service was excellent and smooth boarding"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Normal"
Cons: "Normal"

Cons: "Terrible airline. No one seems to know what they are doing. Very unprofessional, bad experience from beginning to end"

Cons: "Seats more comfortable, please!!"

Cons: "Waiting time"

Pros: "Not at all!"
Cons: "Worst experience ever!"

Pros: "Nothing at all. Rude crew. Tricky rates! I know that is a low cost fly, but for the first time in my life this people charged me for the check in. Unbelievable"
Cons: "Really, all! Money grab low cost airline! The worst experience ever!"

Pros: "I first thought the price/value was good; however, I had to pay to check in, I had to pay for my bags, I had to pay for water."
Cons: "Everything. I will never fly this airline again."

Pros: "Staff at the airport"
Cons: "I didn’t know that you had to check in at least two hours before the flight. Had to purchase another one later in the evening. Staff at information at the airport were incredibly helpful!"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "The crew was helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed"

Pros: "Efficient crew, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Children should not be seated in emergency rows— this delayed our flight almost an hour."

Pros: "I arrived safely in Bogota."
Cons: "Having to PAY to check in at the airport, having to PAY to carry on a bag... this is ridiculous. What seemed a bargain at first glance ended up costing me WAY more than buying a more comfortable airline with more amenities. They are the Spirit Airlines of Colombia. Avoid them."

Pros: "Excellent service!"
Cons: "Excellent service!"

Pros: "Not much. The pilot was communicative."
Cons: "The staff were pushy and rude to me when they told me at the gate, when I was about to board, that I could not have a backpack and small purse. This is not what I understood when booking and is not clearly explained at the time of purchase. One attendant at the gate in particular was forceful and rude when insisting that I pay over $66 in cash at a moment when going to the ATM would mean potentially missing boarding and not arriving back in time to the gate. This process, which I agreed to because two staff members gave me the impression that I could not travel on the flight unless I paid right there instantly in CASH (completely ridiculous), caused me anxiety and took a long time, too long given the urgency of boarding the flight. I had to wait for change for 5 minutes and as a result, I was the last one to board. It should be noted that this process of paying for a maleta in hand at the gate had been preceded by having to pay over $20 in cash to print a boarding pass, which required another ATM withdrawal and fee. This is a weak and predatory business model, which seeks to exploit people’s need to travel and their anxiety. This was carried out in a completely unprofessional and manipulative manner by the staff members. This kind of behavior is unacceptable and exploitative."

Cons: "Paying to print out a boarding pass. Paying nearly as much for a checked bag as the flight itself"

Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a mechanical issue which resulted in a missed connecting flight. Luggage was also lost and the United Airlines pawned me off to Air Canada. Air Canada flight was canceled and the second flight was delayed by 4 hours. Luggage has still not been located."

Cons: "The only airline that charged me for a damn backpack"

Pros: "no delay in departure and on-time arrival"
Cons: "Had to pay for baggage exceeding 6 kilos in weight. Had to find the internet cafe at the airport and pay to print our boarding passes. Agent at the gate would not print nor was there a kiosk to print it."

Cons: "Purchase directly from VivaColombia website or not at all. We were forced to pay $40 each in additional fees to board the plane (including a fee to print our boarding passes) all which we weren’t expecting. Boarding was a mess, the crew were nice."

Pros: "i arrived"
Cons: "extra fees"

Cons: "They forced me to check my bag although I had taken it inside all planes . They lost my baggage for two hours and nobody was responsive. Very poor management including the supervisor. Nobody spoke English."

Cons: "They appear to be cheap but they charge for any small thing including printing a boarding pass and also checkin a carry on. Which overall turns out to be way more expensive that other airlines. Besides their customer service is very bad. they lost my baggage and didn't explain anything for more than 2 hours."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and professional"
Cons: "Not a dislike, but the boarding process was different than USA."

Pros: "Siendo una compañia colombiana, por lo menos regalen el cafe y no instantaneo. Que pena"

Cons: "Hay que pagar por todo adicional y esos costos son altísimos, por ejemplo el agua cuesta dos solares, almpahar la maleta en el counter sale carísima al final termine pagando lo de un tkt en una aerolínea comercial cualquiera, sillas estrechas, la atención muy mala y no hay nada de entretenimiento abordó..... no volveré a volar nunca más en esa aerolínea!!! Pésima"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They won't print your ticket at the check in counter and you can't use an online boarding pass. You have to print one from home or use an internet cafe at the airport that charges $6 to print a single sheet of paper. They jam your carry on bag into a small box. Boarding took longer than the flight! The seats are incredibly cramped yet they recline all the way back, so you're likely to have someone in your lap for the entire trip. Absolutely horrible. Nothing like other high quality discount airlines such as Air Asia which at least treat you like a human being."

Cons: "I booked without realizing that you need to pay for your luggage separately, pay $10 to print your boarding pass and of course pay for all food and beverages. What a pain, not enjoyable."

Pros: "That I got to my destination."
Cons: "The wait time of eight hours. Also that they charged me to print my ticket, and I was charged for a very small carry-on item."

Pros: "Fast, good service."

Pros: "For a low cost company actually the experience was better than others. At least the seat could go back a little."

Pros: "Just shat you expect from a low cost airline company"

Cons: "NO me gusto que cancelaran el vuelo y el plan de contingencia fuera simplemente irnos 6 horas despues donde hubiera disponibilidad. La falta de comunicación, la falta de gestión con las personas, la falta de información incluso en el call center"

Pros: "Lor cost carriers have to be fast and efficient, this flight was just so. The seats are quite good."
Cons: "The boarding line was too long and slow."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They asked me to pay a $15USD tax to enter Colombia. This was never mentioned at any stage of the booking process. I had to withdraw money at an ATM with its associated fees just so I could pay this so called entry tax that neither I or anybody else seems to heard of and, even though I'm an Australian citizen, and we don't need a visa to enter colombia. I flew with VivaColombia twice, the first time I received a boarding pass with I printed out, but for my second flight, I never received a boarding pass email, just an email that said online check-in is not available for this flight and to print attached eticket and take it to the check-in counter at the airport, when I did this they asked for around $10usd to print out my boarding pass."

Pros: "El precio"
Cons: "El avion es muuy incomodo, mido 1,75 y mis piernas van completamente pegadas al asiento de al frente, el proceso de Checkin en Bogota, es un desastre, muy pocas personas, se nota que no estan bien capacitadas."
