Copa Airlines Business Class

Thu Mar 23, 2006 1:17 pm

Hi guys,

Since the US and Venezuela are just a week away from banning each others' airlines for flights between them, a close relative of mine that is flying to CCS via IAH with CO on April will probably go via PTY with CM.

My relative is OnePass Silver Elite and from time to time gets bumped to business class. My question is:

What can someone expect with Copa on Business? anything out of the extraordinary? will it be the same as CO?

Thanks for your help.

Saludos desde Caracas,
Luis

Luis.

I just check www.copaair.com and apparently [?] they [CM] don't fly to IAH. Am I wrong?

CO IAH - PTY has a CM flight number, is a code share; same as several CM flights out of PTY have CO flightnumbers.
In pitch, CM businessclass is a lot like CO, somewhat good for short/medium haul flights. The level of service is fairly OK, but varies a bit depending on the destination.
I don't work for COPA Airlines!

Can such route be booked through copaair.com ?

I tried without success.

The "clase Ejecutiva" of CM is exactly as CO's first class as far as seats and IFE go (domestic, central america/caribbean or any flight operated by a 737 and some 757s), in other words, same boring seats without much to offer... As far as food service on board, you get a much better service than on CO's first class and also you get to enter in CO's President Club at PTY... those two things are about the only things that I could say are better than CO's first class.... Since I take CM's routes often, trust me when I tell you that CM's Clase Ejecutiva is more like an upgrade from Y class than a real "business class" by itself...

Guys I was asking about the CM PTY-CCS leg.

Thanks for the response Atnight. It was exactly what I was looking for.

Oh, Oh. Sorry, my mistake.
I agree with Atnight with the only correction that CM has not F class. It's Business class.

It doesn't exist. It really is an upgraded [?] Biz class [called Business First].
