Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Convenient times."
Cons: "Service level was pretty amateur—late food, understaffed, had to ask for things repeatedly. Business class seats are very dated."
Pros: "The flight from Rio to Panama was very good. The only complaint I have is the food, which is too simple and it could taste a little better. All my flights were on time and arrived in time at the destinations. They have an excellent option for entertainment with good movies and documentaries."

Pros: "I bought a return ticket from Panama City to Rio on Kayak and was not notified that a Yellow Fever shot was necessary for re-entry to Panama. Turned back at the air port in Rio I had to spend an extra 13 days in Rio de Janeiro at my expense, three to see doctor and get vacine, plus ren day waiting period."
Cons: "To change ticket I had to pay change fee plus fare difference. Copa said it was not their responsibility to notify passengers of health alerts and Kayak should be responsible. Needless to say I was on the hook for the time and the bill. I have flown Copa with satisfaction a number of times but this is enough to discourage me from ever flying them again and possibly ever using Kayak again."

Pros: "Great crew, always on time,"
Cons: "Older plane with limited first class features (no foot rest and limited reclining), old entertainment system (no personalized entertainment screen per seat)."
Pros: "This was my first time flying with Copa Airlines. I would definitely use them in the future based on my experience. We flew on two, brand new planes on both flights. The in-flight food was of good quality, particularly for airline food. Staff was helpful, and everything from check-in to when we deboarded in our final destination was seamless."
Cons: "Service is terrible, flight attendants don't seem to be very professional. Snack was terrible quality (two pieces of cheese and 6 grapes), breakfast was bad too. Quality of wine was bad, no Champagne, cheap Cava Entertainment system outdated, seat not very comfortable."
Cons: "Late departure because of the weather. Why boarding and have us 2 hours inside the plane waiting?"
Pros: "The leg from RIO to ,Panama the crew crew not pleasant, the service was horrible, they started serving drinks to passengers from the first row to,the back and since the plane was completely full it took forever and the 2 flight attend that were in the galley, refused to, give me a cup of water I had to beg for it saying please I Need any liquid (since I was felling nayseas and needed to,take my medicaction) sol she gave me (practically through me a cup of a warm apple juioe) not even offered ice cubes, plus etc"

Cons: "I did not get the seat I booked"
Pros: "Very welcoming flight crew! Did their best to make sure we were all comfortable throughout the flight."

Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "Excellent job of a couple of girls"
Cons: "Again, lay over and food"
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."

Well, I think that service is ok, because my experience of check-in in the app was slow, other hand, the rest activities of trip was good.

Very pleasant flight.

My daughter left her phone in the seat pocket on the flight from Lima to Cusco. We reported it upon reaching our hotel, by the phone was never retrieved. We were disappointed that it was not collected by the cleaning crew. Overall, the flight was nice and the disembarking pleasant.

An old plane, with entertainment wifi failures, cold sandwich.

I didn't enjoy the fact the the terminal was changed and then the gate. Also, the attitude of the lady at the gate. I asked her to confirm if that was the final gate and she ignored me initially and was rude when she finally answered by pointing out the screen. I told her that I read the screen but was JUST asking for confirmation. Also, when we landed at Seattle everybody jumped up and crowded the aisle because the crew didn't instruct us to remain seated until their row was called. It was a mess. I enjoy that process from LATAM. Thank you.

Need certificate yellow fevor we dont know this,boarding impossible

I had my seat reserved since the day I bought my tickets(3 months in advance) and even after checking my seat confirmation on the same day of my flight they changed my seat during the check-in. I have a broken foot and was accompanied by another person. I had to fly in a seat that was not appropriate for my broken foot situation and without my companion next to me. This airline does not respect its customers.

Pros: "I am loving the fact how the crew are disembarking and embarking passengers. So far better than many big companies out there in North America"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "They should be on time but we left 30 minutes later."
Pros: "Free flight change."
Cons: "Meal selection was average."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 hours"
Pros: "Crew speaking french"
Cons: "Check in process is a disaster. The passenger is asked to even weight the luggage to be said by the machine to gonto a counter without good reason: the only thing missing with LATAM is to pilote the plane. Awful."
Pros: "individual set of headphones and screens for entertainment"
Cons: "drinks service"
Pros: "Close to nothing. If i had to applaud something it would be the fact that you have an option to check in early via your mobile or laptop."
Cons: "LATAM was incredibly unprofessional, alarming, and entirely non-communicative. After a 3 hour delay that caused me (and tons of others) to miss a connecting international flight, LATAM’s telephone servers had the nerve to claim I was a no show and needed to pay them for my absence. This resulted in a long discussion where I was held on hold until they could adequately determine that yes i missed the flight because they held us late. This was the only way that i was able to avoid their charge to me for being a “no show.”"
Cons: "The boarding in Rio de Janeiro was great, the land crew was very helpful. In Lima it was below par, the crew was not helpful at all, and no warnings or communications to when to board. Had to wait an hour inside the plane for some sort of maintenance."
Cons: "Don’t charge for seat selection. Every passenger deserves to choose their own comfort."
Pros: "Crew was great! Seat a bit tight, like all airlines In economy"
Pros: "the crew was realy great and everything was very good."
Pros: "We will actually travel tonight due to cancellations and route changes. Our seats were upgraded and we were put up in a nice hotel to rest before flight."
Cons: "Better communication about route change and code sharing to fix it."
Pros: "Puntual"
Pros: "We bought "priority boarding" and this was key, because we could board early, choose good seats (exit row) and take our bags on board."
Cons: "It's a short flight, only water offered on board."
Pros: "Nothing. My advice is to look for alternatives. Latam has gone from good to worse. Believe it or not, low cost are giving a better service"
Cons: "Everything. It is a mess. Delays, baggage problems, aircraft passenger entry... the list goes on"
Pros: "The food and in-fight entertainment"
Cons: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "They're very professional I would recommend to everyone"
Cons: "Free soft drinks it was $10 brasilian money"
Pros: "The seats were typical airliner seats - good enough but more leg room would be nice. Our flights ran on time, and the crew was excellent. Our experience at the Lima Airport was much improved from our first stop there."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Organization, information and communication"
Cons: "Too tight, no entertaintment"
Cons: "I've flown a lot of different business class flights in my time and these are the narrowest I've ever seen. I am not overweight but I felt very restricted in these seats. Add to the narrow seats is the design of the seat and armrests themselves and you don't have much space at all. No way I was going to be able to work on my laptop in this LATAM business class seat."
Pros: "Roomy seating. You guys need N/A for the ratings... there was no entertainment or food.... do I rate this 1 or 5 star?"
Pros: "We made the flight in great time after our connecting flight was delayed."
Cons: "Our bags didn’t make our flight. We are very disappointed."
Pros: "Smooth flight good staff"
Cons: "Very cramped seating"
Pros: "Good service, nice plan, great entertainment on my own phone. Very comfortable, good food"
Cons: "I cannot get water before we take off and I am not allowed to bring water aboard. Does not make sense."
Pros: "The comfort of the new Sears at economy-a class"
Pros: "the flight was quiet"
Cons: "only a sandwich and 1 glass of coke for a four hours flight? And if ask for a beer you has to wait until the end of the services... VERY POOR"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight, made no effort to get me home and didn’t reimburse me for my hotel when I had to stay in Iquitos."
Pros: "I needed to check a bag at the gate, and the staff were very friendly and patient when I asked them about it. They are all very fluent in both English and Spanish!"
Cons: "Lots of waiting for the plane to board, lots of time without staff at the counter so people sort of piled up with questions."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Food too sweet (waffles and yogurt ) diaper changer is too small and tight like for new borns only"
Pros: "Courteous, gracious service; efficient and comfortable flight. Thank you!"
Pros: "Menu for dinner and breakfast Nice designed heavy-duty plastic fork and knife Extremely comfortable blanket Meals were tasty"
Cons: "As always in last class, no leg room."
Cons: "We had 4 hours of delay, 3 of them waiting on the plane"
Pros: "Flight crew friendly , on time, clean, comfortable seats"
Pros: "Enjoyed everything about the flight- aircraft, service, food etc"
Pros: "Check-in was quick and easy. Nice aircraft. Crew was super."
Pros: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Seating onsite didn't facilitate the experience. Traveling with a minor, it is important to seat with family members how can help throughout the flight. First come first serve seats approach not a good strategy as a customer approach. Charging extra for regular seats to choose online...not a good approach. Not having vegetarian options a big mistake. What do we eat?"
Pros: "Ok food."
Cons: "I cant even fit my actual problem in his box but point it ill never travel with them ever again. Noone was able to help me when i needed to change my tickets noone knew what they were talking about and everyone you talk to gives you false/different information."
Cons: "We waited over an hour at the baggage claim carousel to collect our luggage. We received no communication or announcement about what was going on. Unnecessarily appalling customer service."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Staff and comfort and"
Cons: "Cosco airport sucks"
Pros: "I travel a lot and for an international flight during lunch time I expected more than a small sandwich. Small airplane (A320) so no personal screen and tight spaces between seats. Service was ok. Flight ok. I miss big airplanes between Chile and Brasil"
Cons: "I travel a lot and for an international flight during lunch time I expected more than a small sandwich. Small airplane (A320) so no personal screen and tight spaces between seats. Service was ok. Flight ok. I miss big airplanes between Chile and Brasil"
