Couple Vacation to Panama City

American offered 10% off their ticket but Copa Airlines still had cheaper tickets. An amazing travel experience with exceptionally friendly flight attendants who upgraded our flight ticket to first class after noticing that we were couples from the names on the ticket.

Retiring in Panama City

I am Richardson from initially Florida. I retired in Panama City last year after working for more than 20 years in Florida. I flew to Panama City to search for a good and comfortable housing before relocating. I bought a ticket to Panama City online after searching for the cheapest ticket online. Purchasing the ticket online was cheaper compared to visiting the travel agents who sold their ticket more expensive compared to purchasing the online ticket. When purchasing a ticket to Panama City, it is advisable to purchase your ticket weeks prior to your departure, ticket are cheaper during this period and i did take advantage of that. I chose to travel using Caribbean Airlines who offered 5% off their ticket and connected me to DHL Aviation for cargo purposes and as a result, DHL Aviation charged a lower ticket price to transport my goods to Panama City compared to other cargo transporters.
