Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "The worst airlines company!"
Cons: "They go above and beyond to make you happy."
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and efficient in performing their duties, the meal choices were very good and both flights departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "They don’t want to give you a whole can of soda or juice. Instead they give you a little tiny cup expecting passengers to calm the thirst with that."
Pros: "I liked the fact that we were able to get free meals and the first check in luggage free."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely. Crew was ok."
Cons: "Lousy food. Small, old aircraft (737). No individual screens, no phone chargers, asked for a repeat hot dish and was told yes, but never got it. It lacks behind many other carriers. I was expecting much better."
Pros: "After not being alowed to board, due to oversold flight, a Copa assistant walked me back through customs and helped me find my bag which was nice of her."
Cons: "I was put on standby due to a “technical error” and then told I would not be able to board because the flight was oversold. Copa offered me a $400 voucher which I declined. Then I was told that it wasn’t negotiable. Sad that they wouldn’t offer more than $400 so that one of the other 100 passengers could have agreed to change."
Cons: "Everything. The only thing is that the seat recline too far back and crush my legs and I’m only 5’11 so I can imagine how uncomfortable it must be for someone taller"
Pros: "We were 7 people traveling together with 4 kids and the system gave us the emergency exit seats, the check in took over one hour (both ways) once inside I have to ask passengers to change seats with my kids because the crew didn’t do it"
Cons: "Nothing, plane is old."
Cons: "Not much room for legs ... I am petite ..can’t imagine regular and tall people’s pain"

Pros: "The flight itself was fine. Good entertainment, in seat options and decent food."
Cons: "There is a second security check point right before you enter the gate area and you can't take any food or drink it which includes water. That made for a long wait with nothing to drink and once on board there was no extra water service."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs, no details on change of gate, not listed on screens around airport and then over sold and two people had to get off. Absolute shambles"
Pros: "Great airline crew service and on-time schedule"
Pros: "There really isn't much to complain about with Copa as they're prompt and efficient. I usually fly on their Embraer E190ARs which are pretty spartan when it comes to additional amenities as compared to the Boeing 737 fleet. However the business class seats are comfortable have a reasonable recline for such a small aircraft."
Cons: "If you're flying on a flight operated by Copa Colombia, be prepared for business class being European styled with regular economy class seats except on the E190 there is no middle row to block off."

Pros: "We made it on time"
Cons: "The food was not very good, the crew can offer water more often"
Pros: "Quick board and deboard and the breakfast was OK"
Cons: "Flight was almost 5 hours long and we weren't allowed to bring beverages on the plane from the Panama airport (which was kind of nuts in my opinion, since I'd just gotten off another plane and had already gone through security); the flight crew only distributed beverages once. I've taken 3 hour flights where the beverage cart has gone up and down the aisle twice! I was really thirsty by the time I got off the plane, and then by the time I got through customs, it had been like 6 hours since I last had anything to drink!! They really should have offered customers AT LEAST water at some point later in the flight."

Pros: "The flight attendants were super nice, and caring, they brought me a new pair of headsets when the original one broke."
Cons: "Most airlines allow a business class passenger to take one guest into the lounge: Copa does not. Worse, the check-in staff at Panama said that it did, but on arrival at the lounge, the staff there said it did not. Awkward and embarrassing. No inflight refreshments, etc. apart from the hot breakfast."

Pros: "That I got a soda"
Cons: "Delayed at Ohare by an hour. Sitting on the Tarmac for a half hour in Reagan, waiting for a gate. This was our leg back to DC, after our leg to Chicago four days previously. On that trip I did a review and gave the whole trip a 1 out of 5 stars. That trip was the trip from hell, with delays, waiting on the Tarmac, deplaning, almost cancelled, more waiting on the Tarmac, wheels up in Reagan, wheels down in ORD, and then more Tarmac waiting for a gate. So I was already more than perturbed when this trip had similar outcomes."
Pros: "We arrived earlier that predicted. I liked it."
Cons: "They gave us just 2 small snack"
Cons: "No entertainment, no food."
