    Four of us boarded in SFO with the weighed, sized, approved carry-on items but when transferring in PTY to Quito, we were refused boarding. Because our carry-ons were either fragile or expensive items, gate-check was not an option. Sorry, Christmas gifts for airport workers in Panama City is not my thing.

    No problems boarding SFO to PTY nor on a LATER flight from PTY to UIO but in the meanwhile, we were refused boarding on our SCHEDULED PTY to UIO. At one point a manager told us that if we didn’t like the carry-on rules on the Copa website, we should contact them about changing them. Seriously? The gate agent refused to follow Copa’s rules then a manager, we still have questions about this guy just being a friend of the gate agent’s, tells us we should contact Copa about changing their policy….

    NEVER again! With the goofy stuff that goes on with air travel, this is the first time our contract was changed on the whim of a gate agent that was probably having a bad day and decided to take it out on the Gringo…. Save yourself the problems and stick with American flagged airlines to Latin America.

    EXTORTION POLICY AND PRACTICE FROM COPA AIRLINES FOR TRAVELLERS IN EMERGENCY SITUATION

    WE are stuck in ecuador since 6 days due to political events. We have contacted our airlines COPA AIRLINES to verify if there was an option to reschedule our flight to leave the country earlier due to the danger of staying here during all these protests and state of emergency from the government.
    The only answer from COPA AIRLINES we have is that we still need to pay 630$ to change our return flights date (original price paid was 250$). When AIR FRANCE, KLM AND DELTA are changing flights for 0$, zero fees, nada, COPA AIRLINES is EXTORTING THEIR CUSTOMERS and doesnt care at all at their security. Dont even talk to me about insurance or having booked a flight with a higher fare in order to be able to make changes. Once again, AIR FRANCE, KLM AND DELTA are changing flights for 0$, COPA AIRLINES just want to make $$$ and dont care about their customers.
    This kind of airlines should not be autorized to fly and I dont even understand why they are part of a group like

    I am writing you this at JFK. We were started to fly at 9:45 am. The flight was cancelled due to a mechanical problem. We are trying to get a refund for the past couple of hours. We having no such luck even though in their own air transportation agreement states
    6.7.2. Types of refunds
    (i) 100% of the value of the ticket will be refunded in the event that
    the Passenger has not used any portion of his ticket or that the interruption has
    occurred at an intermediate point of his departure segment and the interruption to
    his flight is due to an irregular operation such as maintenance or delay of
    equipment.

    For over 3 months, I have been trying to get Copa to respond to my emails and web messages regarding my fully paid and confirmed tickets, which I cannot retrieve via their ‘manage your booking’ site. I keep getting error messages, saying that my flights can’t be found. None of their self-help sites work. Their on-line call-center does not work, either. Copa customer services does not seem to exist. Only because of the help of a very nice travel agent, who had nothing to do with my on-line booking, did I find out about some flight changes, which possibly prevented me from accessing my booking on-line. Copa did not inform me or got in touch with me after so many attempts to get my problem resolved. After such bad service, I am not looking forward to my flights. Especially after having read all the 1-out-of-10 ratings, I am wondering, what could go wrong next.
