Cons: "They took an extremely long time clearing away the dirty dinner trays, which meant that the tray table had to be down. This made it near impossible to get up to use the restroom or to stretch."
Pros: "Encouraged to take the pillows home they were nice"
Cons: "Headphone jacks that work would have been nice. 6.5hr flight without sound! The crew disappeared and would only give half cups of water when asked for. ALCOHOL not just wine and warm beer."
Pros: "Smooth flight, easy boarding."
Cons: "My bags cost more than the flight. Long line at Pasport check."
Pros: "Overall was ok gor a very cheap flight considering it is not a lowcoster."
Cons: "Very incomfortable seats. Hardly reclign, no leg room. I am 5’8” and slim and it was tight."
Cons: "bumping and no coffee"
Cons: "Very warm in cabin, no means of controlling air flow. Seat space very cramped. Very tall person next to me in my space"
Cons: "I am an Asian woman. After seeing the person who is a Caucasian man set next to me used the toile right in front of our seat twice during the flight, I went to use it. Just as I was entering the toilet a flight attendant yelled at me saying: "you can’t use this toilet. It’s for privileged people. You have to go to the end of the aircraft and use that one!" Then 10 minuets later another caucasian man seated behind me went to use the toilet right in front me without any problem."
Pros: "Great flight, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Didn’t connect to entertainment didnt"
Pros: "The crew was personable and was kind at the transfer desk in Lisbon."
Cons: "No USB hole, flight was so delayed that I missed my connection. I like JetBlue better than TAP."
Cons: "Not getting new business configuration"
Pros: "Liked connections and price. Nice crew."
Cons: "There was a hefty charge to reserve seats which wasn’t clearly mentioned on the Justfly website. Knee room was the tightest I’ve had on a commercial flight. The seats barely reclined which is important on an overnight flight."
Pros: "Very nice flight. Complimentary wine, meals and movies. We were in Economy Plus so the leg room was quite good."
Pros: "overall good service; seats are full recline leaning type, which isn't the most comfortable solution, but ok."
Cons: "TAP connecting flight was three hours late"
Cons: "We had to pay $200 each way to check in a luggage and just pick regular seats. That was not clear when we bought tickets. Additionally, they don't announce the gate until 30min before boarding. If you're going through passport control that can be a 45min process. On top of that even though I paid $100 to reserve seats, when we arrived at the gate the seats we reserved weren't reserved. Why did I just pay $100?! Luckily I had receipts. Our connecting flight was delayed 4 hours, making our layover 7 hours! For an hour flight. This is the worst airline."
Cons: "Seats are very tight had more room on earlier jet blue flight"
Cons: "Business flat seats quite restrictive"
Pros: "The crew & cleanliness in general . On time ."
Cons: "What I don’t like in all modern flights in economy( not enough leg room) . I’m 5feet 8 and can hardly fit . I’m Not overweight. I can’t imagine what taller people must feel like."
Pros: "I liked the foot rests and leg room. The gluten-free meal was wonderful."
Cons: "Although I had a delicious gluten-free dinner roll with the main meal, I was served a soggy rice cracker for breakfast. Why not another roll?"
Cons: "Leg room was NOT enough. Had an altercation with the person sitting in front of me when she wanted to recline her seat."
Pros: "The staff were really friendly and the flight was as comfortable for me as a transatlantic journey in stage class can be. The food was surprisingly tasty and that Portuguese wine was offered for free made me and the passengers around me feel welcomed and well taken care of."
Cons: "My flight arrived late, apparently, as myself and people on two other connecting tap flights all deplaned after our respective boarding calls had begun. There was no announcement for people with tight connections or about what to do if we couldn't make them. That tap didn't plan out sufficient connection times for the conditions of the airport, and that it was security, not to itself, that did anything to try to expedite is through passport control, etc was disappointing and resulted in several extra hours stuck in the airport for me and for those on one of those other missed flights having to wait overnight for another seat"
Cons: "Our flight leaving Boston was delayed by 2 hours due to a mechanical issue. So, we missed our connection in Lisbon to Venice (our final destination). We were rerouted from Lisbon to Rome and then to Venice, turning our 2 leg journey into a 3 leg flight. We were offered just 16 euros worth of food vouchers for our trouble. We asked for lounge access because missing our connection meant we had to cool our heels in the Lisbon airport for 3 hours until our flight to Rome took off. We were told we'd have to pay for the lounge! Then, our flight to Rome was delayed. We stood at the gate for 40 minutes past boarding time. No staff even announced that the plane was delayed or how long we should expect to wait. When we finally got to Rome, we had 10 minutes to make our connection to Venice. We lost an entire day in Venice."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and helpful"
Cons: "It was hot in the cabin. The lights were turned on and off without an announcement and without much time to sleep."
Pros: "Seats felt smaller than most international flights"
Cons: "Rock hard seats. Surly stewardess. Mediocre to poor food."
Pros: "There was great entertainment on the first flight"
Pros: "very rude empoyees at check in"
Pros: "I asked if it were possible to change my seat at the gate and was promptly given a window seat. They were very pleasant and professional. Food was very good and movie choices excellent. Good customer service."
Pros: "Overall flight was smooth and crew seemed nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving Boston due to an ac problem. In the end they got it squared away but we sat on the plane for an hour at the gate with absolutely no air flow and it was pretty uncomfortable. Feel as though they should've come around and gave waters, etc to passengers. Also could have improved the selection of in flight entertainment, not many offerings"
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "No lounge airside at Lisbon airport, no shops open that early in the morning"
Pros: "I tot was nice that the flight was not completely full so that we could have a little bit of room"
Cons: "Second connecting flight was very rough. We thought that this would be the shorter, easier flight but it was not"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "I enjoyed flying with tap"
Pros: "Free blanket, pillow, headphones, and wine! Flight was on time, no one weighed or measured carry on bags."
Cons: "Tight seats for an international flight!"
Cons: "The online check in open for a flight from the us to the europe must be open 24 before, indeed it has been opened only 16 hours before..."
Pros: "Lots of leg room at no extra charge. The planes are new and very clean. The attendants were friendly and helpful. Food was acceptable."
Cons: "TAP can't process global entry at Logan international airport yet."
Pros: "The service they provided us reminded us of how airlines used to treat their customers in the past. Meals were provided as was entertainment (there were individual tv screens for us to watch movies on) all for no additional cost to us. From the customer service to the services provided and the legroom on the flight -- everything was more than what we expected and we would consider flying TAP Portugal again."
Cons: "Late arrival in Lisbon, missed our connecting flight to Munich."
Cons: "Schedule was impossible to make the connection due to the need to go through customs which took 45min. Flight was delayed and we missed our connection. The delay was over 6hrs which was rough."
Pros: "The food was good and the seats were very comfortable. The selection of moves was alright. The crew was very gracious despite all the problems with boarding."
Cons: "The boarding process could not have been worse. Both legs were delayed because of bag issues. One leg a significant portion of us had to get off the flight because there was not room for all the luggage. They made me a check my carry on bag because it was over small mediocre weight requirement even though lots of people had heavier bags. Then they LOST that bad for 2 days and it was a nightmare getting it back in another country. The second leg, a person whose bag was on board was unaccounted for, so we were delayed again."
Pros: "Flight was very good and comfortable."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive to the final destination."
Pros: "Seats were spacious. TVs on the flight with lots of movies and TV shows. No delays, great service. Highly recommend it!"
Pros: "Nice new plane, lie flat beds, great value for the price"
Pros: "Wine and sparkling wine were better than anticipated, food was better than average;"
Cons: "I am pretty tall, so would have liked my legroom. Also, my luggage was lost, which is unusual. I had a 3h layover in LIS and did not expect luggage would be lost that easily."
Pros: "The airplane (A-330): the flight was very smooth, the entertainment system is top notch."
Cons: "Lisbon airport is a disaster. I almost missed my connection. Had to beg to be given priority, which was granted at the very last possible minute. Had to literally run to the gate."
Pros: "great staff"
Cons: "More food also snacks along the way"
