Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Get with the times and stop using plastic cups."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. They were very attentive throughout the course of the flight."
Pros: "the only plus was that the plane had TVs and blankets, and a meal. otherwise, not much"
Cons: "Everything... not a good experience overall. We were significatnly delayed for no reason. poor communication, rude staff and no wifi. seats very uncomfortable..."
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "Crew was great. A dinner meal and full beverage service is included ....remember when the Big airlines use to??"
Cons: "Boarding was a surprise to have a security check at gate, especially when they took every ones water that was purchased in the secure area just outside of the gates!!! At least some signage about No Water bottles!!"
Cons: "When boarding from Panama City, the airline security crew at the gate screening insisted on taking my empty water bottle, I assume based on US regulations, even though it was clearly empty. When I pointed out that in the US, there is no problem with empty water bottles-- and the extra security is due to US standards-- they said 'this is Panama' and refused to return the water bottle. The rest of the crew was pleasant onboard the flight."
Pros: "Boarding was in Spanish - thankfully I recognized the number of our boarding group. Everything was average - what you’d expect on a normal flight. But for breakfast, one of the options was eggs. I expected something barely edible, but it was actually really tasty!"
Cons: "Boarding was all in Spanish. I recognized our group number though, so figured it out, but it’s always nice when it’s repeated in English."
Pros: "Food was great, crew was great."
Cons: "This flight did not have the screens for each seat, leaving no choice to choose what to watch or to see flight info."

Pros: "Always is on time"
Pros: "Having a direct flight to our destination won out. The crew members were polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seats are very narrow. The plane did not have in seat entertainment and the movie choice was awful. To add to the poor experience when boarding in Panama City, must pass through gate security with no access to a bathroom or ability to bring water on board. Given the inability to bring water, I would hope to have a water service at least twice during the flight in addition to the drink service with dinner."
Pros: "Everything was great food, confort, crew, boarding etc."
Pros: "Smooth flight, made up for lost time"
Cons: "Very unpleasant experience with crew generally. Very surprising, given previous experiences with Copa."
Pros: "The seat had extra leg room, BUT..."
Cons: "The seat's cushion was pulled out from the backrest, making it a very uncomfortable seat & giving me Backpain. (This was the seat next to the window, not the middle seat.)"
Pros: "The flight attendants were good to everyone and the plane was either new or very close to it"
Pros: "Great overall experience. Hassle free."
Cons: "Lo últimos grupos deberían pasar primero."
Pros: "Nice crew and we left on time"
Cons: "No legroom whatsoever nice crew and we left on time"
Pros: "On time, clean, and non stop, the latter being the best! First flight was a newer plane, and appreciate the USB ports. Older plane on return flight, but got home safe and sound with a little extra time to spare. That's a good trip in my book."
Cons: "Nothing negative."
Pros: "Excellent service and room to stretch"
Cons: "We were late due to waiting for a crew member to arrive"

Pros: "The staff were very friendly. My flights were on time. Check in was easy."
Pros: "The flight attendants excellent customer services"
Cons: "An item stolen from my luggage"
Cons: "We did not have the little TVs"
Cons: "I went through security at Lima Peru (Jorge Chavez International), everything was fine. I arrived to Panama, and the gate was next door which is just great awesome. The bad part was that I had to go through a security check once again there, although I had not left the airport since I left Lima. I went through the exercise, I was told that there would be no liquids (8 oz bottle of water, soda, etc) allowed passed that check point. Yet they were selling these items next to the gate. It made no sense why this checkpoint and why the liquid restrictions. Once in the area if I wanted to go use the restroom or whatever I needed to go through the checkpoint. There were 6 Copa employees manning this station, that's extra expense that the company passes on to the flyer for a step that should be evaluated and look at to see why other airlines do not do this. I was not the only one getting frustrated with this setup, but also passengers that did not speak Spanish they could not communicate with Copa employees. I saw this liquid restriction with Spirit Airlines in Lima, and I decided not to fly with them any more, no matter how inexpensive their fares were. Spirit told us that it was US law that made them have people throw away their drinks, although they were bought in a secured area. To me this was just a way to charge for drinks on the plane. I never had to throw away my drink if I had bought it in a secured area."
Pros: "On time departure from the gate."
Cons: "To board the plane in Panama City passengers had to go through a second security screening and were therefore unable to bring bottled beverages onto the plane. Once through this second security there was no where to purchase water. The free never came through the plane to offer more beverages after the meal service. Many passengers got up and corralled at the back of the plane to get water. I watched a flight attendant drink from one the large bottles herself and then presumably serve to a customer."
Pros: "Food was decent. All Crew very helpful and polite."
Cons: "I wished the longer flight had personalized entertainment in each seat instead of the shorter flight. I could have watched two movies on the longer flight instead of just one."
Pros: "This announcement by the pilot at the beginning of the flight turned out to be incorrect. Despite the fact that I did online check-in at least 23 hours in advance, I was seated way at the rear of the jet. As a single woman who looks unusual because half of my hair is shorter due to recent surgery; I sincerely hope I was not seated at the back due to my appearance. The other passenger seated with me was a very kind developmentally disabled young man. The placement in row 33 +/- only emphasized the many instances of turbulence on the flight to Chicago."
Cons: "The many occasions of turbulence on this flight."
Cons: "Why would you put a cartoon on to watch??"
Pros: "Flight crew were polite and good. Flight was relatively good with excellent entertainment."
Cons: "Despite early check-in, +3hours, and we checked in together; my wife and I were assigned seats that were not together. The boarding staff didn’t even mention that fact or explain why the sitting arrangement was so. It looked like she was just trying to sneak it through. I understand that many people might have pre-selected their seats online and her choices were limited, but a notification would have been nice."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Maybe a lil more movies"
Pros: "The food and service was great!"
Pros: "Friendly and Courteous employees. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Gates were not available upon arriving at destinations. Once we had to take a shuttle bus from plane to gate."
Pros: "Made it home safe"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline and horrible gas smell. Blower didn't work."
Pros: "I love the comfort in these planes and also the fact that at least they serve food, which they don't do in other airlines. The boarding wasn't good due to the stupid restrictions the US imposes on flights to the USA. We didn't appreciate the fact that the airline didn't let us know in advance that we couldn't buy drinks at the airport. That was a waste of money. The food wasn't good at all though. The coffee was terrible and so were the eggs, but at least we got something."
Cons: "Nothing wrong. Complete perfection"
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Booked flight months ago and selected seats for my family to Panama and return. The flight there was fine. When arriving at the airport in Tocumen, the agent told us our seats had been changed to the back. They said it was because they changed planes. New seats were in the second to last row, uncomfortable, noisy, and near bathroom. Instead of moving seats forward this is what we received. Disappointing:.."
Pros: "The people from Copa are so helpful answer questions I like that."
Cons: "That’s everyone should keep their mask on"
Pros: "Price and big chair"
Pros: "Friendliness of staff"
Cons: "The interior was worn and seat saggy"

Pros: "That I made it to my destination."
