I had the misfortune of using this airline and I will never use it again! Departure from Manchester nearly 2 hours late, no apology or explanation given but found out from one of the ground crew that the cleaners hadn't arrived to clean it from it landing. Then when coming home from Lisbon at check in they told my partner...

First time with this airline and I have to say the family were very impressed, fantastic customer service, connecting flight bang on time, seats very comfortable, could have had a little more leg room but thats my fault for not paying for the extra space.

TAP is undergoing a refurbishing program that includes full overhaul of the aircraft and the change from VHS (can you imagine?) to Digital entertainment. My son that also flies this route told me the TAP plane he took before was much better so, I took my chances and flew to Lisbon with Azul with a nice plane, full 180º beds...

My flight was from Lisbon to Barcelona. Thankfully it was a short trip. I sweated the whole entire flight and I don't usually sweat. It was like a sauna in there. It did not seem like the AC was on. No air was coming out from the overhead. The staff was nice but I will never choose TAP unless I...

I do no have words on how bad the service of TAP Portugal is. First off, we begin with the seats. The seats were extremely uncomfortable to the point that a 5'1" person like me was suffering the whole trip. No internet service and when I asked the crew members almost laughed at the ridiculousness of my question. The entertainment...
