Pros: "Great flight to Miami via Copa. Attendants are friendly and helpful. Plenty of room for the legs. Food and entertainment are good, so it was a very pleasant flight. Could repeat anytime."
Pros: "The crew on all of the flights were all very nice. At the end of the day, my suitcase did end up getting shipped to my house within a few days. It was just a little unorganized throughout the process of tracking it down."
Cons: "Following this, my flight in Bogota left 3 hours late. Not only did we board at the time we were supposed to be leaving, but then sat on the runway for an hour and a half before having to go back to the gate to refuel.... All passengers sat on the plane for 3 hours in Bogota before we ever took off with little to no communication as to why. Upon landing in Miami, my bag was then missing which honestly wasn't a big deal - I knew I'd get it back eventually. But with my new flight, I wasn't entirely sure which flight my bag should be with and which airlines (Copa or Avianca) I should go to regarding it. The staff for both were incredibly rude. My suitcase was the one missing and I was the happier, nicer one out of everyone I spoke to. I was told it would be shipped to my house which was great until I got an email saying I could pick up my suitcase at the airport. After searching for 2 hours of where to go and all staff pointing me to a different spot and offering little help, I tried calling the Avianca number I was given for any questions. Unfortunately, there wasn't going to be anyone who spoke English in until after my flight took off. After getting to my final destination, I tried calling the number again to try and sort out where my suitcase was and no one spoke English or could direct me to someone who could. I had to have my friend in Cali call the main office for me to find that my bad was still in Bogota after all of that."
Pros: "I like the easy connection and that we arrived on time. Even that the boarding was late."
Cons: "airplane cold and no blankets. Bad service. No info"
Pros: "The flight left on time"
Cons: "Food is awful and the movie played is the worst children’s movie ever."
Cons: "La comida no es adecuada para un viaje de tantas horas"
Cons: "Too much turbulence"
Pros: "The flight crew was pleasant and was bilingual which made the flight better"
Cons: "It was a lot of turbulence and the plane dropped drastically during the flight. No one spoke English to explain the searches, reason for change in seats. It was difficult to communicate with staff prior to boarding."
Cons: "The quantity of the food was few"
Pros: "Food and sandwiches are tasty."
Cons: "No movie!, uggg... The real problem though is 1) they changed the gate on a connecting flight. Copa seems to make gate changes on all flights without notifying passengers. If you don't watch the board you'll miss your flight. Why not send a crew member to the gate you told passengers to go to , and put a sign by that gate notifying passengers of the change! So stressful!!! 2) In transit passengers catching connecting flights, Copa to Copa, have to go through their security again! What, why?? We cannot eat, drink and relax at the gate because no fluids are allowed AT YOUR GATE. We are not talking ourtside security, you are already in the security areas. Even to go to the bathroom you have to go in and out of security, again! Stupid!! We didn't leave the terminal, and you're making us miserable!"
Cons: "check in"
Pros: "Boarding is very orderly. Flights are always on time with Copa, which makes them a very reliable carrier. Planes are modern, clean and well maintained. Copa offers free headphones, meal and drinks, which is very rare on short flights. I was glad to enter a cool plane, as the Tocumen Airport was without air conditioning service."
Cons: "Tocumen Airport is always crowded, noisy and this time around was without air conditioning. As their main costumer, Copa Airlines should pressure the airport authorities to keep a standby AC system in place or replace it with one that can better handle extreme traffic of people."
Cons: "very cold on the plane and don't provide blankets!"
Pros: "Boarding process went very smooth and plenty of legroom and overhead storage"
Cons: "Volume didn't work on armrest . Volume was stuck on very high volume making the in flight movie not watchable. No choice for food"
Cons: "Everyone everything"
Pros: "Nothing. They said I was a no show on Wednesday Miami Panama and cancelled my reservation. They made me go to The airport and didn't even apologize. Unbelievable mistake."
Cons: "The way I was treated"
Pros: "Please see above"
Cons: "Wheel chair service was bad"
Pros: "This is not the first time flying this itinerary. So , my review counts for many trips. The good: crew, on time, short connection time"
Cons: "always the worst food. Sometimes, unedible. A bowl of pasta with one tablespoon of tomato sauce. Another choice was tough beef. I mean, really hard to chew beef."
Pros: "I now am a fan of COPA airlines"
Cons: "Boarding is not as organized as it should be. All groups are not called so order is lost. Not enough agents attending this process. On-board entertainment system is not very good. The food is poor as well."
Pros: "Was a good flight. The staff was very gently"
Cons: "Doesn't had blanquette"
Pros: "I did get a window seat which i enjoy"
Cons: "No entertainment, old plane which didn't have very comfortable seats and the food was not very good. Also, boarding was done in a very disorganized manner in Panama."
