Pros: I was appalled at the lack of empathy and customer centricity of this central American airline.

Cons: We arrive at SFO with my family. Two girls 2 and 5 and my wife six months pregnant. There was a misspelling in my wife's name. Easy fix right? Nope! The COPA staff forced us to pay a new ticket for her and did not even respect the price. APPALLING!

Pros: Crew was great and the flight was nice other than the one issue.

Cons: Lady told me my bag was too big and tried to force me to check it. I’ve flown all over the world with this bag and never had a problem. Also when I walked down to the plane, I just walked right in and the bag fit perfectly and nobody said anything. She needs help with how she handles these things.

Cons: They pushed the first leg of my flight forward 15 hours, but only told me 5 hours before my flight, and they didn't even change the second leg. Was on the phone for an hour trying to get a new flight, and there were very few options. Very stressful.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
