I love Copa! I fly them several times a year. Copa may not be perfect, but they are far ahead of US carriers when it comes to service, promptness, and modern aircraft. I am so glad to hear they are growing and doing well. Like Dwayne, I hope they don't backslide on their commitment to service. In the meantime, GO COPA!!!
I like Copa but the level of service has been falling of late even in first class. Hopefully this trend will reverse before they become mediocre like all the rest!
