Copa – $366: Chicago – Aruba. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

A nice Spring getaway. There is an overnight layover in Panama on the outbound — you can look at it as a bonus as you get to visit another country or not. You can fly American or United for $70 more — those will not involve an overnight layover.

    Confused!!!! When you are calculating milesage for UA 2015, I was under the impression that flights on COPA (and booked on COPA) accrued actual mileage. You indicate that the UA milesage earning is 3,019 miles. Was there also a change in the COPA mileage earning levels based on class of service? Or, am I missing something? Thanks for any clarification you can give.

    @Janice – yep. United and Copa are parting ways. Miles earning is going to change starting March 1st.

    This says a stopover is not permitted, so does this mean I can’t leave the airport and stay in Panama until my flight 18 hours later?

    The Flight Deal 8 years ago Reply

    @Imia – a stopover is more than 24 hours. Up to 23 hrs and 59 mins is considered a layover. You can leave the airport, hit the city, and checkout Panama. No visa required.
