The name Copa Club gave me a vibe that it is modelled after United Club. Being the hub airport, I figured that Copa Club should be of a certain standard. My gut feeling tells me that I won’t be great since it is a Priority Pass lounge and turned out that my gut feeling was right.

After 1.5 weeks in Texas and Panama, it was time for us to move on to our final stop – New York. Without any fifth freedom flights from Star Alliance, I am left with either Copa Airlines or United Airlines. While United Airlines had a slightly better timing, redeeming a ticket can be rather challenging. Copa Airlines on the other hand can be redeemed directly from the Krisflyer portal without any issue. Although there are 3 flights into JFK, neither is good and only CM 804 was available for redemption (for my travel date). The redemption cost is 30,000 miles per person in Business Class.
