So, I understand what you meant by "actual operators". Actual operators refers to the boat operators who actually operate the boats. Now, as you pointed out there are two which are fairly common and famous, i.e. Pacific Queen Panama Canal Tours Canal and Bay Tours I found two more which seem to have their own ships based on the obscure information ...

One better flight search engine than Kayak appears to be Taca Airlines (albeit based in the UK). For BOG -> CTG -> PTY -> BZE -> SFO, as of June 2nd 2014, Kayak's cheapest flight is $1790, while Taca's is $1630. Copa, despite being local, fared far worse than Kayak on a BOG -> PTY -> SFO route ($1256 vs. $1088). Its interface is also as clunky as Avianca's, ...

There are two ways, and it'll depend on how long he has in the US. 1) He can apply for a new passport, from America, through the Consulate. For example, the Consulate of Panama in Houston, Texas states that it's possible to do so and how to do it, including the requisite forms and costs.

I don't think it's extremely risky if you stick to Major thoroughfares. It would also be advantageous if you speak the lingua populi. If you're dead-set on this trip i'd say you should only stop in relatively well off areas. Mexico is not as lawless as the headlines make it out to be, at least, compared to other central american countries.

While the city is only 15 minutes drive from the airport at times, given your narrow window, it would make more sense for your friend to come to the airport to meet you. Indeed, Wikitravel suggests that in busy periods, it can even take up to an hour, which you don't want if you're stressing about getting back to your flight! Assuming your bags are checked ...

Sadly, most online reviews on TripAdvisor or other local sites also suggest Ancon Hill - others photos suggest that maybe the trees have grown since their shot and yours - or perhaps you need to get closer to the edge? :/ Another suggestion, however, is a different angle - the view from Amador Causeway or Calzada de Amador. It's not a high-up view, but the ...

Maybe you want to give this one a try: http://www.easyridepanama.com/ I once tried a similar service in Panama. It is not the cheapest but works usually. I can't say much more, really. Just use you mouse and click the link!
