The electricity went out at the airport in Panama which caused cancellations and delays. Copa did not handle the situation well. They did not put extra staff to deal with all the people who missed their flights. It was a total mess. I had to wait hours to get a new flight.

Everyone was pleasant and treated us nice. Flight was on time.

In San Jose Costa Rica there was one employee checking in general boarding passengers and three employees checking in elite passengers. There were approximately 50 passengers in general boarding (one hour wait time) and no more than 6 elite passengers at any given time during my wait in line.

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.
