Never flew Lasca, but I've flown COPA a lot. COPA was 49% owned by Continental (they recently sold off some more shares) and they are based out of Panama, so all flights connect thru there.

So the point is he's a sexual predator as well as being cheap? Or $85 is a good deal, especially considering Tokyo is a very expensive city? Or the girl should have higher self-value?

I've seen this hashed out over and over again. My take is some FAs say it's an FAA reg (even though it isn't) so Y passengers will respect the two-cabin arrangement more.
