I called the help desk and after 40 minutes and 4 different people they said that in fact that the flight 008 from Bohota to Miami was delayed. Very Poor communication between company departments and poor communication alerts to costumers. In addittion, the only explanation from counter staff was "airplane maintance". Really? For an international flight from Bogota where you have located your main airplane base ? I do believe that land staff is very poorly train compared to inflight crew. Land staff has very poor supervision to improve costumer service."

Sendo que em outras cias colocam na primeira fileira para o cachorro poder ficar no chao.

Pros: "The punctuality is good, the crew is good."
Cons: "How can you sell a full fight on an Airbus A-330 and not have enough food for everyone?! On this flight, me and my son were left without a hot breakfast and their excuse was "sorry, we ran out" so we got only the leftovers from the serving trays. It's sad how airlines keep getting worst by the day."

Cons: "update planes"

Pros: "We liked everything. It was short but great."

Pros: "Licor gratuito"

Pros: "Food and sandwiches are tasty."
Cons: "No movie!, uggg... The real problem though is 1) they changed the gate on a connecting flight. Copa seems to make gate changes on all flights without notifying passengers. If you don't watch the board you'll miss your flight. Why not send a crew member to the gate you told passengers to go to , and put a sign by that gate notifying passengers of the change! So stressful!!! 2) In transit passengers catching connecting flights, Copa to Copa, have to go through their security again! What, why?? We cannot eat, drink and relax at the gate because no fluids are allowed AT YOUR GATE. We are not talking ourtside security, you are already in the security areas. Even to go to the bathroom you have to go in and out of security, again! Stupid!! We didn't leave the terminal, and you're making us miserable!"

Cons: "check in"

Pros: "Kidness of flight attendants Both flights on time"
Cons: "They should improve the entertainment on board. Most of the airlines have installed screen on the back of every seat and have internet access."

Pros: "Boarding is very orderly. Flights are always on time with Copa, which makes them a very reliable carrier. Planes are modern, clean and well maintained. Copa offers free headphones, meal and drinks, which is very rare on short flights. I was glad to enter a cool plane, as the Tocumen Airport was without air conditioning service."
Cons: "Tocumen Airport is always crowded, noisy and this time around was without air conditioning. As their main costumer, Copa Airlines should pressure the airport authorities to keep a standby AC system in place or replace it with one that can better handle extreme traffic of people."

Cons: "very cold on the plane and don't provide blankets!"

Pros: "Boarding process went very smooth and plenty of legroom and overhead storage"
Cons: "Volume didn't work on armrest . Volume was stuck on very high volume making the in flight movie not watchable. No choice for food"

Pros: "Nothing. They said I was a no show on Wednesday Miami Panama and cancelled my reservation. They made me go to The airport and didn't even apologize. Unbelievable mistake."

Pros: "Timely, organized and food was served in this very short flight"

Pros: "Please see above"
Cons: "Wheel chair service was bad"

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"

Pros: "Crew very nice"
Cons: "No vegetarian options"

Cons: "Only middle seats available; couldn't be seated next to travelling companion."

Pros: "I have absolutely no complain about this flight or the crew, they were all diligent and helpful."

Pros: "Excellent. COPA always excels at customer service and comfortability. Some food as well, which is nice for such a short flight."

Pros: "it was ok."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "I now am a fan of COPA airlines"

Pros: "I had taken a COPA flight 2 years ago and the leg room was unacceptably cramped. On this flight the coach seats were given a bit more crucial space. The plane boarding and baggage handling was as fast and pleasant as possible."

Pros: "Everything perfect. On time, good service"

Cons: "And then the next available flight was 1600$ with no insurance coverage. I had to be late to travel with an acceptable flight price. I expect some sort of compensation for this lack of awareness. No one called my name or the flight number before the flight had left whixh is weird to me."

Pros: "The flight was on time and enjoyable."

Cons: "Flight rerouted without plan. Crew totally unprepared, hostile to customers, horrendous customers service, on tarmac nearly three hours without water, etc., stranded all day at LAX unnecessarily, CREW NEVER DID SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS for additional flight, which is totally illegal!!"

Cons: "Although the airline knew about the delays it decided to make people wait inside the airplane for almost 4 hours. That was insane! I refer to this specific situation with such dislike because I had friends traveling at the exact same time as us through a different airline whom didnt let the people aboard the plane until climate warnings were cleared. It was the proper thing to do! I been in others flights in which weather conditions dont allowed to depart on time and people is not allowed to go on board until the conditions are better. No even a cup of water was offered during this stressful time, and the seatbelt sign was on the whole time. It was horribly handled!!!"

Pros: "I have never bought a flight ticket with Copa airlines...."

Pros: "Everything was on time and have no complaints on this particular flight."
Cons: "I was not allowed to board my next flight out of Panama City because of overweight. I suspect they knew that was going to happen as they gave me a boarding pass without a confirmed seat."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "modern aircraft, everything else was terrible."
Cons: "rude crew, they go out of their way to make you feel uncomfortable small portions of food"

Cons: "copa management delayed the flight 1 hour 45 minutes to wait for 17 people arriving from ecuador to Panama to connect with the miami flight. With no notice the left us sitting in panama airport till 130am...Arrived Miami at 340am!!!!!! Copa saved a few dollars on not having to put passengers on a hotels but lost 2 clients who pay for 1st class tickets for good...."

Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "nothing was bad"

Pros: "Overall it was good experience. Fast boarding, good in-flight food and beverage selection. The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "For some reason this airline for the Miami flight uses their older aircrafts and being this such a popular route they should consider on using their newer model that have more space, individual entertainment and overall are more comfortable."

Pros: "flight left on time, transfer time in panama was short. panama is a good place to switch planes cause tjey dont make you go through security check again"
Cons: "they didnt have screens on seats"

Pros: "Plane, food, safety"
Cons: "Flying attendants"

Pros: "comfortable boarding, on time"
Cons: "food"

Cons: "Missleading information from COPA personnel at JFK Airport about to claim the luggage in Bogota or Cali. Secondly the last connection Bogota-Cali was not booked either by Copa or Kayak with Avianca Airlines, so after showing paper work and fighting with Copa we got 4 hour late flight. We were not the only ones, there were about 12 people with the same situation."

Pros: "Movie selection on place was great."
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible. The crew that was in charge of boarding had no idea what they were doing. They did not follow protocol and people were just lining up and not following the group numbers, as the crew never called them out loud. Because of this there was a 45 minute delay in take off."

Cons: "El espacio entre asientos es muy reducido. Las rodillas pegan contra el asiento de en frente. Muy incómodo y genera impacto en la espalda."

Cons: "The flight was delayed more than an hour. The seating is super uncomfortable, a small sandwich is all we got for an almost 4 hour flight plus the delay. No entertainment on board makes it a killer. I will no longer be booking any flights with LatAm."

Pros: "No waiting"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Terrible food"

Cons: "One bathroom was out of order, and movie system did not work"

Pros: "The crew was extremely helpful with my insulin dilemma given the limited resources they had at hand."

Cons: "Too tight, no entertaintment"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and didn’t care to do anything about it. They name no means of tracking. They don’t know where the luggage is, whether it even left Bogota or not. They literally don’t have a tracking system. And their only response to us was that we could go ahead and leave a bad review on the website and that’s it. I’m not kidding! I can’t believe they are still in business. It’s just a terrible company."

Pros: "Flight"
Cons: "U have to pay for everythings"

Pros: "The Crew tried to work with what they have."
Cons: "1. Plane to small. there was no room. 2. Flight was delayed for 2 hors. 3. my suitcase was sent down to storage and my back pack have to be put under my feet. but there was two more tenet my seat already. 4. We have to board the plane in the middle of the airport. and have to walk a lot to get the gate signed. 5. Once arrived I had to connect to American Airlines flight and have to walk one mille and change to get to the other side of the airport. It will be ok, but I was with a 3 year old minor and I have to deal with this and the child"

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "Easy boarding and organized staff. Friendly staff overall."
Cons: "Terrible terrible food- no TV (really? in 10 years flying to Colombia this was a first) seats were very uncomfortable, no room to move the legs, the seats were super old no room at all. I have traveled with LATAM before and I had good experiences, with no complains. But the flight from Bogota to Miami on may 29th was mediocre and it seems longer than it was. That plane should be used for shorter flights and not a 4 hour international flight. I am not expecting first class seats and 5 course meals. But for the same price I could have used other airlines."

Pros: "airplane was new"
Cons: "i was not able to do online check in"

Pros: "customer service in Bogota"
Cons: "needs to download the app to watch movies if you do not have a I pad or smart phone????"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "It was delay. 2 hours."

Pros: "I flew from Baltimore to Miami to Bogotá with zero issues. I am a musician and was traveling with my guitar, nobody hassled me and there was adequate space. The only issue was in Bogotá for my return flight. After struggling with the LATAM kiosk machine I was told by a LATAM ticket agent that flights from Bogotá to Miami are through American Airlines. Luckily a very nice American Airline agent accompanied me back to LATAM and convinced them my flight was with LATAM. Everything else was simple and easy!"

Pros: "nothing really different from other airlines"
Cons: "my camera and other things were stolen from checked luggage and the company didn't respond"

Pros: "friendly flight attendants topped off wine glasses a few times in flight! meals were actually pretty tasty"
Cons: "seats are a bit tight on the 777 but what airline isn't these days"

Pros: "Muy bien"

Pros: "The flight was about 85% empty! Loved the whole row to myself. Staff was extra friendly probably because it was the last flight and everyone was comin back home. Arrived early, and smooth landing."
Cons: "No complaints here."

Cons: "Because of the terminal staff, I did not make this connection and had to spend the night in Santiago, and then wait for a flight to Sao Paulo and then to JFK, which added another 18 hours to my trip. This caused much inconvenience for me as I could not get home when I was supposed to. At least some of the terminal staff should have a good command of English and supervisors should be more willing to step in and help. I will try very hard NOT to fly with LAN again."

Cons: "I have not got one piece of luggage yet. I am in Cali Colombia. Have not received any any notification!!!!!!"

Cons: "Baggage allowance is just one bag. With Avianca or Copa you get two. This is very critical for me."

Cons: "My headset did not work so I could not watch any movies during the 6 hour flight"

Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "the flight was delayed"

Pros: "Lan is a very good airline for the most part. The flight was comfortable and it was easy to transfer from one flight to the next."
Cons: "During one of our layovers someone went through both me and my traveling companions bags. In my bag I found a pair of mens socks and my belonging were left a complete mess. My traveling companion found wrappers for candy inside of her bag and the inside pockets and zippers had all been undone. I am not sure if this is the fault of LAN or of the ground crew at the airport."

Pros: "I seat on 13th row with my husband, which was more comfortable than the way in."
Cons: "They did not serve breakfast."

Pros: "Someone in the arrival flight left a vomit on my two seats 7D and 7F. The vomit was cover by the blanket, the airplane took off with out me and my wife having The setas belts on. I told The flight attendant what was hapening.,,, she told the capital before took of but they they told me sorry and we flew 5 hour to Miami with the vomit, the smell, with out security and more!!"

Pros: "Ok todo."
Cons: "Todo regular sin comentarios."

Pros: "All was great - we even arrived early."
Cons: "Not even a cracker"

Pros: "Flight crew offered me compensatory AA aadvantage miles for screen not working"
Cons: "Screen did not work on video display. As always, seat was terribly uncomfortable. Felt like I was sitting on a wooden playground bench."

Pros: "The Bogota based crew provided the best service I have ever experienced. Extremely pleasant and customer focused. We were flying with twins and they assisted us through out the flight. Once we landed in MIA they helped us maneuver through the maze to reach the customs & immigration area quickly. All in all a great experience."

Pros: "Latam lounge in Bogota"
Cons: "Pay for premium seats, not enough leg room a rip-off"

Cons: "Left 2 hours late from Bogota"

Pros: "Everything went very well."
Cons: "No room between seats."

Pros: "Everyone was quick"
Cons: "Small seats"

Pros: "Todo bien"
Cons: "Todo"

Pros: "Finally taking off"
Cons: "Being stuck on the runway"

Pros: "Comfort level on the plane was beyond my expectations. Seats, noise level, and elbow room excellent. I will definitely take another flight with American."

Cons: "Beverage service 10 minutes before landing. The cabin crew waited quite some time before starting service which meant they finished late"

Cons: "No space! Glad I was sitting next to family! Seats were tight...no leg room...long flight!"

Cons: "I am missing two items that I had in my checked bag and my clothes and belongings were all messy as if it had been gone through. I am very upset that these items were likely taken by whoever went through my bag."

Pros: "I liked that you could watch TV and movies from your personal device without a charge."
Cons: "That the flight was delayed."

Pros: "I did not die"
Cons: "planes were old, they lost my checked bags, the seats did not recline on a 5 hours flight, the movie was the same for everyone on the plane, food was a disgrace, seats were so small I was pretty much bitting my knees the whole trip. Overall, I am ever flying with American Airlines or Latam ever again."

Pros: "The attendants helped you with all your needs. They were professional and fluent in the languages necessary to help the passengers. Very impressed"
Cons: "Good was good. Snacks and beverages were awesome."

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?"

Cons: "I had a 6 hour layover in London but the American Airlines still couldn't get my bags from terminal 5 to terminal 3 and i flew into Miami without my bags! Thank you for making my life harder!"

Cons: "HORRIBLE experience. I had a flight delay that forced me to reschedule to a flight the following morning and caused me to pay for an overnight at a hotel; none of the staff seemed to care whatsoever about their customers' travel plans or experience, giving us little to no information up to the point of canceling our flight, and doing even less to accommodate when plans were foiled. I honestly am waiting for a refund at this point. Terrible trip with American Airlines."

Cons: "No entertainment, no food"

Pros: "Seat"

Pros: "Getting to my seat was overall the best experience. Out side of the finally walking onto the plane and sitting down, over an hour late, it was less than mediocre."
Cons: "If the plane was on time and didn't run an hour and 20 Ish minutes late, it would have been fine, except for the blinking over head reading light that would flash in my face every 20/30 seconds that could not be turned off being due to, as the flight attendant said, "they all do that"."

Pros: "Arrived early and flight wasn't packed."

Pros: "The inflight crew was outstanding!"

Pros: "Puntuality in both fly's"

Pros: "Value for money"
Cons: "The staff doesn't hold passengers accountable to carry on bag size and additional bags. It results in cabin luggage storage being full before 3/4ths of the passengers board."

Pros: "Exit row seating."

Pros: "entertainment displays on the back of every seat headrest. Nice room on Main Cabin Xtra, even with someone in the middle seat."
Cons: "1 of the flight attendants was pushy(older caucasian lady)"

Pros: "Boarding and baggage."
Cons: "This was a long non-stop flight from Miami to Denver. Over 4 hours. So I took the plunge and bought first class. I always fly first class on any flight over 2 hours. However, I was disappointed. The food was so-so and insufficient. The drinks were also not enough. The video displays were small and poorly located for the movie. The seats seemed uncomfortable. All and all I have come to expect a better experience from American Airlines in First Class. The ticket was expensive."

Pros: "We flew directly from Madrid to Miami with IBERIA"

Pros: "Business class comfort was a huge difference! The seat, space entertainment was great."
Cons: "Food not great. Priority line not separate for boarding. If you don't board right away when first called, you get stuck behind everyone else boarding. Those that have higher boarding numbers stand around blocking the line and no announcement ever made to remain away from line."

Pros: "Right on time."
Cons: "The aircondition was extremely cold. I was freezing"

Cons: "Too many delays Seats too cramped Too much crowding at boarding ...need a single file roped off lines for boarding passengers by group numbers so there would be less shoving, K coming people down, and stepping on feet."

Pros: "Handicap boarded with sufficient extra time"
Cons: "Not enough room."

Pros: "Enterteiment was Very good. Plane New."
Cons: "Attendants did not give me coffee. Just yougurt. Nobody offered. But esse offered to Others."

Pros: "Arriving early"

Pros: "I would like to include these miles to accumulate them. I flight with Latam to Río de Janeiro renta y. How can I get them?"

Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"

Cons: "Paying extra for seats"

Pros: "Fomos atendidos pelo JIM ao fazer o check in e despachar as malas e adoramos o atendimento. Muito simpático e gentil."

Pros: "Modern plane"
Cons: "Required to board bus for a half minute a ride to get on plane in front of "gate". Business class only 8 smallish seats. Economy have was as cramped as ever. Long restroom lines."

Cons: "Person on my seat on previous flight puked and it had not been cleaned up. Puke in the seat tray and on the floor. My personal bag had pile all over it. Yuck."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I called around 5 times since june or july to change my flight because I was injured at work and couldn't travel. I called customers service and they told me that I cannot change my flight they dont give another solution they just told me that I have to buy another flight ticket. I will not recommended amy of my family or friends to travel in vayama."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "My entertaiment system was broke, I let the crew know about it but they never pay attention on this issue, seat 13F"

Pros: "QUE SEA PUNTUAL"

Pros: "El servicio al cliente"

Pros: "Crew cordiality"
Cons: "Comfort of the seats, could not recline"

Pros: "Friendly staff at the gate, also the crew as goodl"
Cons: "Don't need 2.5 hours delay to start my vacation. We finally checked in at our hotel at 01:00am....."

Pros: "Checking in with kiosk was easy. Boarding went quickly. Seats had adequate space."
Cons: "Older plane than the one going down. No seat back entertainment. Typical mini bag of pretzels and a drink."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and uneventful."
Cons: "The crew did not seem to be in the best mood."

Cons: "Terrible airline. No one seems to know what they are doing. Very unprofessional, bad experience from beginning to end"

Cons: "Seats more comfortable, please!!"

Cons: "Waiting time"

Pros: "Not at all!"
Cons: "Worst experience ever!"

Pros: "Nothing at all. Rude crew. Tricky rates! I know that is a low cost fly, but for the first time in my life this people charged me for the check in. Unbelievable"
Cons: "Really, all! Money grab low cost airline! The worst experience ever!"

Pros: "I first thought the price/value was good; however, I had to pay to check in, I had to pay for my bags, I had to pay for water."
Cons: "Everything. I will never fly this airline again."

Pros: "Staff at the airport"
Cons: "I didn’t know that you had to check in at least two hours before the flight. Had to purchase another one later in the evening. Staff at information at the airport were incredibly helpful!"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "The crew was helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed"

Pros: "Efficient crew, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Children should not be seated in emergency rows— this delayed our flight almost an hour."

Pros: "I arrived safely in Bogota."
Cons: "Having to PAY to check in at the airport, having to PAY to carry on a bag... this is ridiculous. What seemed a bargain at first glance ended up costing me WAY more than buying a more comfortable airline with more amenities. They are the Spirit Airlines of Colombia. Avoid them."

Pros: "Excellent service!"
Cons: "Excellent service!"

Pros: "Not much. The pilot was communicative."
Cons: "The staff were pushy and rude to me when they told me at the gate, when I was about to board, that I could not have a backpack and small purse. This is not what I understood when booking and is not clearly explained at the time of purchase. One attendant at the gate in particular was forceful and rude when insisting that I pay over $66 in cash at a moment when going to the ATM would mean potentially missing boarding and not arriving back in time to the gate. This process, which I agreed to because two staff members gave me the impression that I could not travel on the flight unless I paid right there instantly in CASH (completely ridiculous), caused me anxiety and took a long time, too long given the urgency of boarding the flight. I had to wait for change for 5 minutes and as a result, I was the last one to board. It should be noted that this process of paying for a maleta in hand at the gate had been preceded by having to pay over $20 in cash to print a boarding pass, which required another ATM withdrawal and fee. This is a weak and predatory business model, which seeks to exploit people’s need to travel and their anxiety. This was carried out in a completely unprofessional and manipulative manner by the staff members. This kind of behavior is unacceptable and exploitative."

Cons: "Paying to print out a boarding pass. Paying nearly as much for a checked bag as the flight itself"

Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a mechanical issue which resulted in a missed connecting flight. Luggage was also lost and the United Airlines pawned me off to Air Canada. Air Canada flight was canceled and the second flight was delayed by 4 hours. Luggage has still not been located."

Cons: "The only airline that charged me for a damn backpack"

Pros: "no delay in departure and on-time arrival"
Cons: "Had to pay for baggage exceeding 6 kilos in weight. Had to find the internet cafe at the airport and pay to print our boarding passes. Agent at the gate would not print nor was there a kiosk to print it."

Cons: "Purchase directly from VivaColombia website or not at all. We were forced to pay $40 each in additional fees to board the plane (including a fee to print our boarding passes) all which we weren’t expecting. Boarding was a mess, the crew were nice."

Pros: "i arrived"
Cons: "extra fees"

Cons: "They forced me to check my bag although I had taken it inside all planes . They lost my baggage for two hours and nobody was responsive. Very poor management including the supervisor. Nobody spoke English."

Cons: "They appear to be cheap but they charge for any small thing including printing a boarding pass and also checkin a carry on. Which overall turns out to be way more expensive that other airlines. Besides their customer service is very bad. they lost my baggage and didn't explain anything for more than 2 hours."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and professional"
Cons: "Not a dislike, but the boarding process was different than USA."

Pros: "Siendo una compañia colombiana, por lo menos regalen el cafe y no instantaneo. Que pena"

Cons: "Hay que pagar por todo adicional y esos costos son altísimos, por ejemplo el agua cuesta dos solares, almpahar la maleta en el counter sale carísima al final termine pagando lo de un tkt en una aerolínea comercial cualquiera, sillas estrechas, la atención muy mala y no hay nada de entretenimiento abordó..... no volveré a volar nunca más en esa aerolínea!!! Pésima"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They won't print your ticket at the check in counter and you can't use an online boarding pass. You have to print one from home or use an internet cafe at the airport that charges $6 to print a single sheet of paper. They jam your carry on bag into a small box. Boarding took longer than the flight! The seats are incredibly cramped yet they recline all the way back, so you're likely to have someone in your lap for the entire trip. Absolutely horrible. Nothing like other high quality discount airlines such as Air Asia which at least treat you like a human being."

Cons: "I booked without realizing that you need to pay for your luggage separately, pay $10 to print your boarding pass and of course pay for all food and beverages. What a pain, not enjoyable."

Pros: "That I got to my destination."
Cons: "The wait time of eight hours. Also that they charged me to print my ticket, and I was charged for a very small carry-on item."

Pros: "Fast, good service."

Pros: "For a low cost company actually the experience was better than others. At least the seat could go back a little."

Pros: "Just shat you expect from a low cost airline company"

Cons: "NO me gusto que cancelaran el vuelo y el plan de contingencia fuera simplemente irnos 6 horas despues donde hubiera disponibilidad. La falta de comunicación, la falta de gestión con las personas, la falta de información incluso en el call center"

Pros: "Lor cost carriers have to be fast and efficient, this flight was just so. The seats are quite good."
Cons: "The boarding line was too long and slow."

Pros: "El precio"
Cons: "El avion es muuy incomodo, mido 1,75 y mis piernas van completamente pegadas al asiento de al frente, el proceso de Checkin en Bogota, es un desastre, muy pocas personas, se nota que no estan bien capacitadas."

Cons: "Terrible airline. No one seems to know what they are doing. Very unprofessional, bad experience from beginning to end"

Cons: "Seats more comfortable, please!!"

Cons: "Waiting time"

Pros: "Not at all!"
