I only missed the flight by a few minutes but the crews were not communicating with each other that they had a passenger arriving for that flight. Because the delay was weather related, they wouldn’t provide accommodations. And it was 1 in the morning. So I missed a whole day of my trip and had to sleep in the airport.

Pros: "It was a good trip.. Thanks!!"
Cons: "I've flown Copa many times before and it's generally good for low-cost price but this time was horrible, probably because our first time with new baby. First, there was unexpected shock of having to pay $300 at gate for ticket for the baby, even though she is 4 months and sat on my lap the whole time. Never heard of charging for that and we had to pay % of roundtrip ticket cost right there and then. Second, they don't allow early boarding for families with small children. Third, and finally, on the trip back they also suddenly announced a "no checking boxes policy" which I had also never heard of. We had to take a baby swing out of its box, dismantle it, and carry on a large part of it. A total hassle and crew was not very understanding. Definitely think twice about flying Copa if you have kids."
