Cons: "The food was not good and there was very little in way of tv entertainment."

Pros: "seat was very comfortable with good leg room. Crew was very polite"
Cons: "coming thru the cabin for garbage pickup more often"

Pros: "Crew was very good. Seats were spacious. Plenty of entertainment."
Cons: "More frequent snacks."

Pros: "Newer planes, good service"
Cons: "The terminal in Lisbon is poor. Poor food choices. Dirty bathrooms. And keep an eye on the change you get back, 2 out of 2 purchases they tried to shortchange me... one was for over 2 euros."

Cons: "Aircraft left an hour late after rushing us through the terminal. The cabin was freezing, the food was bad. 13 hours was a very long time."

Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Lots of hidden fees, horrible customer service, no flight entertainment available, seats were uncomfortable. Definitely would not recommend"

Pros: "Great Crew nice plane"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, not enough space for carry on, due to luggage cost is way overpriced, as well as seats too expensive"

Cons: "Not missing our connecting flight because if flight / airport delays."

Pros: "Very on time, smooth take off and landing and friendly staff."
Cons: "Perhaps spirits offered other than just wine. And a vegetarian food option."

Pros: "The crew was generously serving me and the price was more reasonable than any other."
Cons: "I had a huge passenger next to me who took most of my space the whole time during the flight and ended up hurting my neck and back. I understand it had nothing to do with the crew, but not comfortable at all. Besides, there was no entertainment and even outlet available."

Pros: "Everything was going well. Confotable seats lovely air hostesses. Food wasn’t so great but I was surprised we even got something!"
Cons: "Unfortunately I had problems at airport security which wasn’t very pleasant!"

Pros: "I travel for pleasure a lot and this was my first time flying TAP Portugal. I flew from LIS to MAD and the crew were overall more friendly and smiling than on US domestic flights. The plane was clean and bright. I did not notice if the seats recline. I will be using them for short flights throughout Europe when I return for visit."
Cons: "Flight was so short they rushed us eating the cookie and only water was served that I could tell. Also, TAP has their own boarding check-in wing of Lisbon airport. It was not clearly marked and Eropean arrows pointing up could mean to continue forward, as well as go to upper floors."

Cons: "why do they sell their tickets when they know they can not make the connection? little time between the two flights compared to the functionality of the airport. never again TAP"

Pros: "Great lie flat seat. Nice FAs."
Cons: "Food was not that great for intl C"

Pros: "Great experience overall. The food was good and great selection of movies and TV shows."

Pros: "Great flight, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Didn’t connect to entertainment didnt"

Pros: "Belam cake was lovely !"

Pros: "Plane was good, service on board pretty good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we were never notified despite receiving multiple emails to ‘upgrade’ our flight. While checking in we attempted to upgrade 3 tickets to first class and were sent to 3 different areas in the airport with our luggage, having to wait in line each time. Didn’t provide vegaterian options on board. Weren’t given a gate ever after landing 5 hours late and were kept on board for half an hour making us miss a 2nd connection we had to rebook after the initial delay. A frustrating experience hat could have been made better with just some communication about what was going on."

Pros: "Missed our flight due to initial delays."

Pros: "It was a cheap way to get to Lisbon with no frills."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess with everyone waiting in front of the gate starting 10 minutes or so before the boarding time. The seats didn't recline at all."

Pros: "Food was good and there were a lot of good movie selections."
Cons: "The process and lines at airport were extreme. I also had thought one bag was included in flight cost. I am an organized traveler and know I read this. But when at check-in, I had to pay 75E for one checked bag. So I feel the website needs to be more clear. Food"

Cons: "Theo charge me a lot for my luggages I just try to call many times to tap for ask about the sports luggages and I never can reach then nobody ever answer the fone . They charge me 124 $ for my board and 90 dollars for my bag the total is 214 $ that’s almost the same price of the ticket ."

Pros: "Food was abundant and pretty good. I paid $91.95 US (think it was 75 euro) for the exit row and felt this was money well spent."
Cons: "They charged me $90 for my luggage. Several weeks or perhaps even months after I booked, I received an e-mail saying I had booked Super Cheap Economy or some such. It had a link to pay for 'additional services' but not luggage. At the time of booking, I checked and the price given was $35. So, I have protested the additional $55 with my CC company and will see what happens. BTW the luggage was not overweight. They turned off all the lights, including my personal reading lamp, so I could not read and had to just sit there doing nothing. That really blew big chunks. I only got two small glasses of wine."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They gave someone else seats I had reserved for 6 months and that I had paid extra for. I will take that up with the company forewidth"

Pros: "The plan was clean, newer, and comfortable. If you sit towards the front of the plane you end up sitting in economy plus for the economy price."
Cons: "No entertainment, but the flight were short enough it wasn't really a problem. With downloadable Netflix and Prime, that isn't a problem anymore."

Cons: "everything is ok but food is bad. better give to passenger fruit or bisquit, wafers"

Pros: "I love flying TAP because I love having extended layovers in Lisbon. Lisbon itself, including the airport, is easy to navigate. The food is great and the culture and architecture is gorgeous. For shorter trips TAP doesn't have as many amenities as other airlines, but on this trip the typical video screens with movies, music, etc. was available."
Cons: "In this particular flight there was a male airline attendant who was fabulous and who could speak many languages, including German. I noticed the other airline attendants seemed to be giving him a really hard time and weren't friendly at all. In fact, I rang a bell to ask for attendant help at one point and no one came to help. I was just a seat back from the area where the helpful airline attendant was available. I think that overall TAP flight staff could be a bit more open to being friendly. However, on the ground in Lisbon I've found the staff to be amazingly helpful."

Pros: "Friendly and kind captain and crew"
Cons: "I was very very sick, so after the 3 hours delay I asked to stay in Lisbon and be sending next day to continue my journey home ... Surprisingly TAP told me that they could pay the hotel in Newark, but not in Lisbon.. Go figure! Called TAP Customer Service 4 times, 2 from Lisbon 2 from Newark... all cases more than 1 hour wait... AND THEY NEVER EVER ANSWERED!?!?!"

Pros: "I liked being able to exit the plane at the end of the flight"
Cons: "The seats were cramped and it’s upsetting how you can’t select your own. Flying overseas for 7 plus hours it’s best not to be sandwiched in between two strangers, some of which were vomiting the entire flight due to turbulence that the pilot announced would only be minor."

Pros: "Service, the way the pilot communicated our delay and the food and beverage"

Cons: "As I keep metioning....you guys need to be more generous with the Victoria program. I fly you guys a minimum of 7 or 8 times a year, plus numerous partner flights, and what do I get? no free upgrades, 60,000 miles to become gold etc etc"

Pros: "Disorganised boarding and staff not efficient Plane was not cleaned until passengers arrived at plane and waited in buses while they finished cleaning, waited standing approximately 30 minutes at plane on bus"

Cons: "No vegetarian option The last seats mean can't lean backwards when someone in front goes backwards :("

Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "The whole flight, TAP decided to use low cost aircrafts to do long distance flights ..... very poor. Far too much Discomfort no entertainment at all."

Cons: "the entertainment system was outdated and did not work. For such a long flight this in not acceptable"

Pros: "Great flight, cordial, good food (yes, it's possible), good entertainment !"
Cons: "Boarding process at the gate can be improved."

Pros: "Overall flight was great and crew very polite"
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about it!"

Pros: "Once you get to the airline all is good"
Cons: "TAP changed the flight and only allowed 1 and one-half hours to transfer. You need to go through Portugal custums and the line is long."

Pros: "Smooth landing"
Cons: "A few bumpy moments in the air!"

Pros: "They served a sandwich."
Cons: "I flew TAP in sept 2016. It was full service invoked TAP again because of this and then had to pay for a small checked bag at the airport. Also there were a lot of sick people on this flight. Two people near me theew up."

Pros: "Love it!! I can't wait to fight again"

Pros: "Great planes. Very professional and helpful staff. Lots of leg room"

Pros: "The flight was great the crew members were excellent and help ful the food was great"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Baggage fees not updated on website. Despite having done my due diligence about baggage fees, the airline didn't update their website since October for my November trip. So I get to airport and pay 74 euro each way for two bags! Old planes and poor customer service Also, nobody picks up their customer assistance telephone number"

Pros: "Cabin crew very friendly and helpful. Food very nice -- unusual mix of dishes for airlines!"

Pros: "There was enough space between the rows of seats!"
