I'm a 737NG captain set to retire this January and feel lucky to have an interview lined up with COPA next month. If anyone has any useful information about that airline it sure would be appreciated if they could pass it on. How about what to expect during the interview? And what's it like living in Panama City? I went to Belk's today and bought a new, dark blue suit. The girl who sold it to me was friendly so I asked her where she was from and she said, "Panama." I was speechless :eek: so she continued "you know, right next to Costa Rica." "Um, where the canal zone is???" For a second I thought Rod Serling was going pop up right behind the counter. Don't know it that was a good omen or a bad one. Anyway, thanks in advance to anyone who has time to write in.

ATA has been doing some sub-service for Copa out of MIA to Panama City. Don't know what it's like there, but I've been told that they can't keep pilots around.
