Pros: "copa is always on time"
Cons: "food quality is low drinks are 'rationed'"
Pros: "I am a premier member of other airline and they treated me bad (gate counter). On the way to Ecuador, they have placed me in a group 2 however on the way back home is different.

Pros: "The staff/flight crew was amazing. Films and music selection were great and best of all free. Food and drinks came around at the perfect time."

Pros: "Service, food and very clean airplane."
Cons: "We like this airline"
Cons: "We were sitting for at least three hours before drinks were served, and not because there was any turbulence. It just took them forever to load up the cart. Also, the air conditioning wasn't working very well. We were roasting for nearly seven hours."
Pros: "Good as can be"
Cons: "Departure delay not usual in COPA."
Pros: "The crew they provide us what we need"
Cons: "The space for the legroom was to tight. I had to stand up several times to stretch my legs, they were getting cramps. I'm only 5'8"."
Pros: "The Crew, the lady in Business Class was very professional. You are fortunate to have a lady like her in your employ. Generally COPA itself. My only complaint so far I wrote about in this thread."
Cons: "Panama gate, there were not enough seats, one had to stand, or lay on the floor. LAX, did we land in Inglewood? We had to bus to the terminal (which made elders carry their luggage up steps); it had to stop every time we were within certain feet of a moving plane, your staff telling people to move closer on the bus, when we were already packed in. It added a much longer time to the trip, and I saw COPA planes attached to the terminal, unfortunately we were not one of them. I paid for the upgrade, which was fine, buy the Panama gate, and the bus situation was bad. Health & happiness..........."
Pros: "That I was able to eat in the plane excellent food!!"
Cons: "That didn't have Wi-Fi and the economy seating only one bathroom was working"
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "I did not like having to sit on the floor while waiting for the plane to board. After going through screening, we were held in a room that had about 75 chairs for a plane that held over 150 passengers. room and seating was way to small for the passengers boarding the plane."
Pros: "Leaving the plane when it landed."
Cons: "Second time in a five day span where i didn't have a seat because they overbooked and over sold. The first time resulted in a two day delay and they tried to blame my connecting flight when , in fact, they had oversold the flight. The reps at LAX were horrific. The only She was awful. manager refused to talk to me about the issue as she had other customers to take care of...devil spawn. No help. I had to call the online number to get another flight and they tried numerous times to talk to her but she refused. Yet, I would see devil spawn on her phone laughing and joking and talking... but too busy to help the consumer. She was awful. Horrible."
Pros: "The service was ok but they seemed like young jokers who were there just for their job (money) and less to make our experience good. They were always hanging out and laughing in the back."
Cons: "Someone should remind people in English and Spanish that the screens on the back of the seats are light touch. The lady behind me kept pounding in it until I asked her nicely not to and I think she didn't speak English so she just looked angry and shrugged me off. It was quite a problem for me."
Pros: "Friendly staff was there all along the flight. There wasn't a moment where the crew members weren't making sure you needed something."
Cons: "The recently released movies selection was very limited other airlines have a bigger selection of movies"
Cons: "Copa 302 dumped us at the LAX terminal's immigration processing area along with 500+ passengers. I'm guessing that passengers from 3 or 4 other flights just overwhelmed the immigration staff . It took us ( just the US citizens ) 1:05 to pass through. People in other categories too longer !!! Ed Villena"
Pros: "Price. Minimal delays."
Cons: "Incredible how indifferent staff is to dirty bathrooms, faulty entertainment systems, and unsafe passenger behavior."
Pros: "Staff was professional, efficient, and kind in moving my mother who cannot walk and was in a wheelchair. Thank you"
Pros: "I liked that food was included...it was hot and mostly tasted pretty good. I liked that there was entertainment included...with free headsets. The crew were very nice and did a wonderful job taking care of us."
Cons: "I think the boarding process could be improved. Alaska Airlines boards from the rear (after 1st class and mileage partners) and that sort of helps the bottleneck in the middle. I would have liked more choices of movies...but, gee - I managed just fine."
Cons: "No pude reclinar el asiento. Estaba roto. Asiento 27F"
Pros: "My infant son was very grouchy and crying a lot I really appreciated how the crew tried to cheer him and offer him snacks and talk to him when they would pass by to cheer him up, it helps a struggling mommy"
Cons: "The cabin is very dirty and the ear phone ad touch screen doesn't work properly"
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "We purchased our tickets back on August to travel on November, I selected my seats at the first opportunity. We were traveling with 2 kids. Once we got to the airport, our seats were given away to someone else. They placed us on row 17 an exit row!!!! Once we got to the gate they had to reassign us to another seats, they told me we cannot all sit together. I started complaining and final placed us on row 10. After takeoff we realized the seats on this row does not recline!!!!!! We had 6 1/2 hour flight with 2 kids with NON recline-able seats. It was trip from hell.... the staff at the check in were rude, unprofessional and lied. Next, time I would not fly with an airline that can not deliver 4 seats."
"My flight from Lima to La has been delay for 2 hours l has to run because l had a conecction from La to Phoenix of course the airport was a mess because it was under construcción. My coneccion was delay again for 45 minutes! Well l made it l guess! The landing was horrible!!"

Cons: "7:50 am flight, arrived EZE 5 am as instructed, boarded plane at 10:40 am, missed connecting flight and spent 14 hours in Lima, shuttled off to a hotel 1-1/2 away, for a 2am flight. Arrived next day in LA and missed shuttle. Both legs very poor service on and off airplane, added security for having to enter Peru complicated and delayed things further. LAN used to be the best to SA, LATAM is the worst, never again."
Pros: "- Flight in bound to Peru + 7 hrs late. Family of 4 separated. - Flight in bound to Cusco Overbooked. Sent us on a different flight. - Return flight from Cusco Bumped (+4 hrs late), promised voucher and upgrade due to all the previous issues. - Return flight out bound from Lima. Would no recognized any of the promises nor the inconveniences of the other flights and the promises. (In Lima all was denied by the land people but they kept on sending us from one person to another for over 3 hours until the final minute when all passengers where on board they said they could not do anything). Family was separated once again."
Cons: "The crew did their best to overcome what the land supervisors did not do. Check with us during the flight."
Pros: "the entertainment console's on the seat backs are modern and have a lot of content."
Cons: "LATAM made me pour out all the water at the gate that I purchased on the concourse after security. they also made me throw away my food. I am very displeased that I had to throw out $15+ dollars of food and drink and that I had zero water when getting on an 11 hour flight. that's outrageous."
Pros: "our flight back home went smoothly"
Cons: "our flight from LAX to Montevideo was delayed by 8 hours, making us miss our connections. We arrived day late. Our luggage a day after that. Our friends went back home on another LATAM flight from Buenos Aires that was delayed. They were flown for 2 days around South America before making to LAX."
Pros: "The crew worked non stop, with smiles and courtesy. The landing was great."
Cons: "The seats are small and too close together. I sat behind a woman who reclined her seat into my face the entire flight. I could not put my tray down to eat. Very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Taste of new menu"
Cons: "Boarding was very disorganized and not on time. My seat assignment was changed upon boarding the plane. They had assigned 3 people to my seat which was an isle seat I had chosen upon purchasing my ticket 5 months prior. I was changed to a middle seat. They had an extra (makeshift) security check point on the actual boarding ramp. They made everyone open their carry-on bags and suitcases on folding tables just before entering the plane. They also took beverages bought at the gift shops, right before getting on the plane which was unusual. Overall ground crew was not very customer service oriented. In flight crew was better."
Pros: "Staff none"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and plenty of space. Very nice flight attendants. Decent food that we didn't have to pay extra for and free movies, tv or games."
Pros: "It was comfy"
Cons: "When I got to Miami, I wasn't assisted to the next gate"
Pros: "A good amount of room, really enjoyed that you could check in two 23kg bags free. It helped a lot with the carry on baggage issue (lack of space, too many people wanting to put their too large bags in the overhead bins). Good entertainment selection, they provide headphones which is nice. Comfy blankets. The crew was attentive and patient."
Cons: "Started boarding late but the captain got us to our destination early even in spite of late boarding."
Pros: "Large amounts of movies to choose from."
Cons: "NO LEG ROOM! The worst!"
Cons: "I showed up to my flight from Lima and was told by Latam that my flight wasn't in their system. Due to the late hour and lack of customer service agents by the time I was able to get to the front of the line (phone calls didn't go through to anyone) the time had passed for me to even check in. According to Latam, Virgin changed my flight and forgot to rebook my return home. I ended up sleeping at the Lima airport, paying out of pocket almost $2000 and having to fly through Miami. No one took responsibility for the fact my ticket was changed and I wasn't informed - unacceptable."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, attentive, helpful,friendly. Food was good not great. Business seats lay flat."
Cons: "Business seats, when laying flat, were not particularly comfortable. Rather hard. The only complaint."
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "No leg room, seats go back too far"
Pros: "Maybe, we'll have to see..."
Cons: "KAYAK sent me this email as i sit in a hotel provided by the airline in Lima. I will submit a complaint with KAYAK, for I believe I deserve compensation, especially when this email is sent to me impersonally before a solution to the problem has even been carried out."
Pros: "My movie screen did not work. Those are not my stars on this survey."
Pros: "The crew and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Coming from the cuisine of Peru, I expected the food in coach to at least not taste like rubber and have some variety. A ham and cheese pastry for dinner didn't quite cut it. At least they offer free wine and beer."
Cons: "Everything. We never made it to the last flight because they cancelled our flight home, stranding us (myself, husband and 2 small children) in Ecuador. I have traveled extensively for almost 20 years and have NEVER dealt with such a terrible company with such shady employees. It was unbelievable and we aren't the only ones. Just take a peek at their social media accounts. They don't allow reviews anymore but there is a community of people who have been stranded in South America by LATAM and the link is easily found. They seem to have a ploy to try and get people to buy extra tickets. Seriously a scam. Stay away!"
Pros: "The LATAM entertainment offering for planes without screens was very cool."
Cons: "The plane was older and a little rickety. The gate was unknown until very close to the flight."
Cons: "They said , the are not responsable for my personal items, this is not acceptable"
Cons: "Latam could not link with American Airlines. It was like I had two separate tickets even though they had a code share with AA. I couldn't get a boarding pass across airlines and my seat assignments were a real problem."
Cons: "When buying a flight price and the airline on which I fly are the two most important factors.... LAN transferred my flight to AVIANCA and the food was terrible and the flight attendants weren't very friendly in general. The experience was not very enjoyable"
Pros: "Got to see the Lima airport"
Cons: "Even though it was the same exact plane at the same exact flight. All passengers had to get out, go through a security check point, then wait in line to board again. And at boarding all carry-ons were searched by hand, proving that the security check point is useless."
Pros: "I liked the service. On time leaving. And on time arrival. Luggage was ther. No lost luggage. I would do it again for sure."
Cons: "I didn't like boarding procedure. But overall not bad"
Cons: "After pass security, before we were about to boarding, everyone was all waiting for their turn there were many security stuffs showed up and let entire people open their bags before get on the plane. It end up delayed flight too."
Pros: "I was able to move my seat to a middle seat and got to watch."
Cons: "We would watch other people on the plane across the aisle or in front of us get food options but when it was our turn to be served the flight attendants just handed us whatever was closest without asking our preference. If something is unavailable just say so."
Cons: "Too crowded"
Pros: "Good movie selection at in seat screen and I was lucky enough to get one that worked."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly. Food was not good. They made me throw out the soda I bought inside the airport AT THE GATE then didn't give enough to drink on board the plane."
Cons: "American Airline did not announce the change of gate in proper time. LATAM on the other hand was very good and smooth"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Delay was a drag and bathrooms were disgusting"
