Pros: "They treated me super great"

Pros: "Crew was great and ride quick"

Cons: "Precios más accesibles"
Pros: "I like the service"
Cons: "It will be really nice if there more healthy food options"
Cons: "Most of the crew members were not helpful. I saw an older lady ask for assistance in placing her luggage up top and the crew member told her she could not help her with that, so unprofessional.."
Cons: "Mi fly was canceled. They only rescheduled from Montevideo to Bogota, and forgot to do it for the second part. I had to call them and ask for a new option. Their best option was a 23 hour fly, or a 20 hour fly with 3 plane changes."

Cons: "Food and movies"
Pros: "The service from the crew and also Avianca staff in El Salvador are really nice, the flight was on time, the baggage was on time."
Cons: "The entertainment in that airplane (N492TA) is too bad for a 6 hours of flight, just one screen for every 4 rows, bad movies, the food wasn’t good taste, the airplane wasn’t well equipped for so long flight."
Cons: "They cancelled my return flight at 10 pm the night prior to a 645 am flight. I suspect they just decided to cancel the flight since it did not have many people, but I don't know for sure, since no explanation was given. Instead of flying from MVD to BOG to NYC, I had to go to Lima, then San Salvador then NY. On top of that, I had a business class ticket, and my last leg from San Salvador to NY was in coach."
Cons: "How to manage to the costumers we went there a hour before our fly and they didn’t let us to check in, we did pay a penalty because they said that we were late!? We pay more than $400 to they change our fly!!!"
Cons: "A group of people including me, were waiting for our baggages for more than 30 minutes."

Pros: "Very courteous & helpful"
Cons: "Old recliner seats."
Pros: "They held the plane for late connection."
Cons: "Food in Business Class was barely edible. A tired old plane."
Pros: "The staff in the Cali airport were helpful in getting a new ticket for me when I couldn't make my connecting flight after the initial delay."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed minutes before boarding in Cali, Colombia and I wasn't going to make my connecting flight in Bogota so I had to be given a new flight."
Pros: "Although not many the selection of movies had a good variety"
Cons: "The food was horrible"
Cons: "n/a. sole exception was initial check in from Montevideo to Bogota COL. my first ticket agent was not a happy cacmper. but the second one I dealt with for a friend was wonderful."
Pros: "It was a horrible experience dealing with Avianca customer service and Erardo Romero"
Cons: "Our bag made it on the flight. We did not. Cause was an Alaksa Airlines system glitch delaying check-in. Avianca cancelled our entire trip to Cuzco and back because we did not makw the flight to Boston."
Pros: "Two pieces of luggage allowed, enough leg space and delicious food if more then enough for me to say that from now on Avianca is really my favorite airline from now on. I really wish I can fly with them all the time!"
Cons: "The only little thing is the crew who was extremely polite but almost non of them were speaking english. But we still found our way of comunication :)"

Cons: "Awful food, entertainment, and on board service"
Pros: "It got me from Point A to Point B, so credit for that?"
Cons: "There were zero vegetarian food options. Entertainment was a shared screen between a dozen passengers. These planes need a fire upgrade."
Pros: "Great service, comfortable seating. I was provided with a blanket, decent warm meal, and wine during my 5 hour economy flight. Very happy. Would certainly recommend."
Pros: "There was nothing exceptional on Avianca's service on this service."
Cons: "There was nothing exceptional on Avianca's service on this service."
Pros: "Check in counter, in flight entertainment and food were good, alcohol included."
Cons: "to join the passengers for the next day flight in order to have a full plane. All other flights took off despite weather delays. On top of missing 2 work days because of their business decisions, everyone beginning their journey from Bogotá were considered "locals", thus creating a very tense situation with employees with lots of arguing and unprofessional behavior. Finally they agreed to accommodate everyone at the hotel, getting there after 7pm. 2 full days lost! Why do they offer flight frequency if they won't honor it? People make plans around their purchase, but they just don't give a damn. Will do my best to avoid this airline in the future and will not recommend it to anyone."
Pros: "same comment as previous"
Cons: "same comment as previous"
Pros: "I liked the way the crew treated the pasengers and helped them I wished every avianca crew was like this one"
Pros: "SERVICE AT THE DOOR WAS EXCELENTE"
Cons: "FOOD WAS HORRIBLE, THE BOARDING TIME,"
Pros: "the crew was very polite. flight departure was on schedule"
Cons: "the trip is 5 hours and no entertainment on board. arrival was delayed, and i had to make a connection. luckyly i didn`t have any problems"
Pros: "I had an emergency row seat, giving me more space."
Cons: "This was an older plane both SFO-SAL and SAL-SFO. The ride back had tv screens every 5 seats or so."
Pros: "Food was excellent. They gave me dinner and a snack. High quality food. Staff members were really polite."
Cons: "Entertainment was really poor. Seats didnt have a screen to watch movies or music."
Pros: "great onboard service and on time arrival"
Pros: "Extra space because flight was relatively empty"
Cons: "Old plane with bad facilities. Had to use plane earphones because plane only had two prong headphone that only displayed one ear audio if you plugged in your own headphones. No neck rest for head on seat. Entertainment system was slow to respond and had problems throughout the flight (needed to be reset by crew). Overall just an old and outdated plane, which was terrible for an international flight - especially the longest of my 3 legs home. Once again, entertainment was far too limited. Only one recent hit movie, which I already watched in my 1st flight during the 16 hour journey."
Cons: "We had a delay on one of our flights, but there was a lack of explanation. When we inquired about missing our next connecting flight they said, "Don't worry the plane will wait for you". When we arrived, our connecting flight had already left without us. There was just an overall lack of transparency and a lack of communication within the company/between airports."
Pros: "Yes. Was excellent."
Pros: "nice crew."
Cons: "seats were too small and uncomfortable, not possible to lean back much because of a tall passenger behind me. international flights should have better seats."
Pros: "Crew was excellent, one snarky attendant—sent me back to my seat, then two other folks went on to get in line for restroom. I didn’t appreciate her tone with me. Just sayin"
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable for a long flight. They light up pain on my tailbone. I sat on my neck pillow from time to time to get relief."
Cons: "The only thing that disappointed me was that I had no access to the lounges. I had hoped to be able to use the first class lounges since I had booked business class but I was not allowed in any of the airports."
Pros: "the flight attendant was great, he did a very good job."
Pros: "on time departure, amicable crew."
Cons: "terrible food, entertainment needs to be looked at."
Pros: "crew member was rude"
Cons: "Being polite"
Pros: "The crew was amazing but the space very poorly"
Cons: "Could be better with more space and bigger seats"
Cons: "The communication could have been better. If you have to add on 1.5h of flighttime due to an extra stop for refueling, you should tell the customer that information! Lots of people missed their connections, shuttle buses etc because we didn’t get that information!!!"
Pros: "Great crew, lay-flat seats in business made for a very comfortable flight back home."
Cons: "Customers service, i didn't get meal the flight in. Also, i asked for seats away from the windows, and wasn't honoured."
Cons: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Perdí el enlace con New York por La demora en la salida El próximo vuelo y que me ofrecieron pero 10 horas después de mi arribo En aceptable experiencias"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The seats feel like they are made of a composite of concrete and bent metal rods. I couldn't get comfortable in the economy plus seats on the 7 hour flight from San Francisco to Panama City, and on the return trip, I was in first class...and the seat was uncomfortable there as well. It was like sitting on a concrete park bench for 7 hours."
Cons: "That my ticket said my departure and arrival were a certain time and they were different with out them notifying me of the changes."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival. Smiling and friendly crew. Excellent airline."
Cons: "Waited 30 minutes onboard at the gate before departure in a VERY hot plane. We were traveling with a 6 year old, and there were only 3 kids movie choices."
Pros: "The flight from Panama to San Francisco was very good. The only complaint I have is the food, which is too simple and it could taste a little better. All my flights were on time and arrived in time at the destinations. They have an excellent option for entertainment with good movies and documentaries."
Cons: "Copa Airlines"
Pros: "On time Orderly process Friendly/helpful crew"
Cons: "Recent movie selection was not as robust as other airlines but decent still"
Cons: "-When I left Punta Cana I had bought 3 rum bottles at the Duty Free. I was able to carry on board these bottles, but when I arrived at Panama the Copa crew informed me I had to check my liquor. I had to throw out everything from my backpack and place the bottles in it. Copa crew managed to break my bottles."
Cons: "They said the flight was delayed by 2 hours but then decided to board all of a sudden. We somehow made it but still ended up missing our connecting flight. Food was pathetic with no vegetarian options. Groups of people were split up and not seated together. Complete mess!"
Pros: "The food was excellent"
Cons: "Seats did not reclined as they should in business class nor foot leg rest lift as it should. Not to business class standards"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great. Extremely easy going handled everything thrown at them with great poise."
Cons: "Not Copa's fault but had the WORST family sitting behind me that allowed their young children to run up and down the 1 aisle at whim. Can't believe how they thought this was okay. Again, probably not Copa's fault, but why on earth do we have to go thru a 2nd round of security AT OUR GATE in Panama City, when we've already done it in a much more secure manner just to access the terminal? Having to give up my water before getting on the plane for a 6 hour flight makes ZERO sense. I hope this requirement is due to some stupid TSA/USA regulation and not Copa. If its the latter, please re-evaluate this."
Pros: "Crew was great, food was good, legroom ample in economy. Great value."
Cons: "Entertainment system was good, but move selection a bit limited."
Pros: "The stewardess gave us a row of seats after noting that my husband and I were in two separate rows."
Pros: "Poder dormir tranquilo porque habíamos dormido en el suelo por haber perdido el vuelo anterior, y esperar el que nos consiguió el counter de Copa, diciéndonos: "lo único que puedo hacer es no cobrarles el nuevo pasaje""
Cons: "Haber perdido el vuelo por culpa de Copa y por haber incomodado a 2 personas de edad ( mi esposa de 68 y yo de 72), sintiéndonos degradados de tener que dormir en el suelo por ser 1a vez de estar en Panamá y no disponer de dinero extra para un hotelucho."
Cons: "Didn’t like the options available, reduced"
Pros: "I would like chais mores comfotable.. the flisgt was long an bored, because the entertainmet was not good."
Pros: "Las atenciones son buenas"
Cons: "La comida no es buena para un vuelo de 6 o 7 horas"
Cons: "I didn't like I could not choose my seat."
Pros: "Movies,entertainment,but it can be better."
Cons: "Cold coffee."
Pros: "Movies were good."
Cons: "Copa crew at the boarding gate was non-communicative with passengers despite being 25 minutes past posted boarding time."
Cons: "TERRIBLE. Never had a worse flying experience. Was told at the first leg of the trip that there were 2 open seats on this flight but they would not reserve one for me. Mind you I booked this flight several months ago and somehow my seat got taken away from me because copa overbooked yet again. Worst customer service of all time. Was traveling with a group of 7 girls and got left behind in Panama because Copa took my seat away. Had to sit at the Panama airport for over 10 hours waiting for the next flight and arrive home at midnight. Copa would not allow access to a lounge or hotel even though they initially offered it when they said how they would take care of me if they couldn't get my seat back. Disgusted by how this airline operates."
Pros: "Same as above. Good service."
Cons: "My first plane was delayed. Then the flight delay exceeded to where I'd miss my next connection. Then I changed flights once the connection was going to be missed and had a narrow margin to catch the newly assigned connection which was the last flight to town. The flight leaving SF was delayed to where I missed my last flight and had to stay the night in Seattle. It seems all of this could have been resolved if I could have gotten on an earlier flight, which I was trying to do since 4:00 that day. I didn't end up leaving SFO until 9:00 pm"
Cons: "Meals Chatting and gossiping of crew"
Cons: "I was seated at an exist row at the window seat. The crew would not allow our row to stay seated at the exit row because she said we did not know Spanish well. Instead of finding us replacement of a window and aisle seats we had to take middle seats. She didn't even make an effort to ask if anyone would switch out. I wish airlines would train their crew to think out of the box style and practice customers service, which finds solutions and not state rules. In the end - people migrated to the exist aisle anyway (where we were seated) and made it into a bed."
Pros: "Attendants were polite and helpful food was good"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Biggest problem was the inappropriate advice given in Sint Maarten by Copa employees about checking bags in Panama. This caused us to have to buy a new piece of luggage to transport something that couldn't be carried through security. Apparently TSA requires additional screening beyond the normal airport security for Tocumen. For Copa employees in Sint Maarten - whose only flights are to Tocument - to not know this is absurd. There was also an incident with duplicate seating that was handled extremely poorly. I was not involved, but it occurred on an adjoining seat. I finally resolved the problem by giving up my seat. Tocumen airport is not an airport that I want to see again. The security - as indicated above - is not up to standard, the flight listings are ridiculous (6 screens all showing the same flight information and never progressing past "M" In the alphabet, way too much duty-free shopping and way too little other signage. It's off my list."
Pros: "On time!!!"
Cons: "The food needs to improve and some of the attendants need to be friendlier."
Cons: "Copa cited some airport restriction on number of people they could accommodate on the plane due to weather and how this was handled and processed by the ground crew was just terrible. This affected a number of passengers -- 30 or more, by my estimates. And it started with the leg from Panama to San Francisco not checked in automatically and getting placed on standby. The call center did not offer a suitable explanation for the airport's weather restriction. As a frequent flier on the Star Alliance, I have not seen a situation handled as poorly as this. The ground staff seem very poorly trained to handle what seems to be a frequent situation. And despite most affected travelers being there early with a layover began to resolve this only 45 min before the flight. My appetite to fly Copa from San Francisco has vastly diminished. And so has the desire to fly through Panama City, if weather is as fickle as they say it is."
Pros: "I was bumped from an overbooked Copa flight and was offered another that would get me home at 1am (rather than 3pm) or an overnight stay and a flight the next morning. Instead of trying to find a way home from the airport (a 1+ hour ride) in the middle of the night, I opted to stay in Panama overnight. Copa put me up in a very nice Sheraton in downtown Panama City with a pool, several restaurants, a casino... They gave me $20 per meal I'd be staying for (lunch, dinner, and the following breakfast), arranged a shuttle to and from the airport, and, the best part, a $1000 voucher for future flights with Copa within the next year - enough for two more round trip flights."
Cons: "Communication was minimal or false. When I checked my bag, the agent told me that I was being placed on standby because of a weight limit on the plane. She assured me that the flight wasn't full and that I would absolutely get a seat. When I got to the gate, there was minimal information available, but about 12-15 people were on standby, including two families of 4 and 5 people. The agents were ill-informed and didn't immediately explain why so many of us were on standby and whether anyone would make it on the plane, or what the other options were for those who wouldn't make it on the plane. Eventually four or five people boarded, another few got moved to a later flight, and 6 including me were put up in a hotel. Betzy, a gate agent for Copa at Tocumen, was absolutely wonderful and so helpful and informative with all of this."
Pros: "The flight was good, but there were not a lot of entertainment options, Also, no blankets were offered on the either flight."
Pros: "Everything perfect"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "In Panama City we had to go through a secondary security at the gate and had some of our belongings taken from us.. belongings that are normally allowed through security in the U.S... and because of this we had to have our fragile items put below with all the baggage and be sent to baggage claim.. which was extremely scary for us and frustrating. We were held inside the security of the airport without be allowed to leave to use the restroom, buy water or eat food."
Pros: "I missed my first flight due to faulty advertising by copa. Because they announced the flight was delayed. Then they did not want to put me on the next flight because they said it was full, but it was not. Copa representatives at sfo treated me very badly, even though I was very polite. I told them if they didnt put me on the next flight, I would miss my cruise in panama and they were still not helpful. They told me they couldn't do anything to change my flight because I booked through kayak. They ended up putting me on the next flight and I still barely arrived at my destination on time and I had to spend 150$ extra because my transport in panama had already left me. I had to walk all o er ago to see if there were any flights to panam from other airline because they didn't want to admit their mistake and put me on the next flight. I had a horrible experiences with copa on my way to panama and on my way back. Their people were unfriendly, rude and not helpful at all. They give no greetings, they lie about planes being full and my suitcases arrived cracked. Worst and most stressful flying experience I ever had!! I am still infuriated and would like some kind of reparation or action taken because I had to stay 4 extra hours at the airport, spend extra money and they gave me the most stressful experience ever while flying. Oh"
Pros: "Crew, food, seats in first class were good."
Cons: "This was my first time flying Copa and on the way to South America, my flight from SF was delayed and I only had a 36 minute layover in Panama City, so I missed my flight and rheee wasn't another one for 6-7 hours. Then on the way back, we were flying from Panama City to SF and we stopped in Cancun without explanation and sat on the tarmac for almost 2 hours before getting in the air again. The other elements of the flight were pretty good, but really bad planning and logistics."
