I will never ever use this airline again!
Pros: "I liked that pillows, blankets and headphones were provided."
Cons: "Boarding was a cluster (mainly because the lines were unorganized)."
Cons: "Boarding process was disorganized and no announcement was made about paper boarding passes and not accepting electronic ones. The seats were very cramped"
Pros: "Chief of the cabin"
Cons: "Terrible customer service. Attention to disable customers is null. They literally torture the disable passengers. Very rude and insulting wheel chair staff."
Pros: "Crew was superb!! Very attentive and extremely willing to help people when called upon."
Cons: "Aircraft entertainment screens were not working at all at a lot of seats. Airbus 330-300 was dated and the cabin amenities were in disrepair. But overall the flight satisfied everything that was needed!"
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."
Cons: "Milan airport closed and flight diverted. Horrible experience"
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: "loved the pillow and the blanket and the movie options"
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: "Terrible terrible service in helping with a tight connecting flight, terrible"
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"
Pros: "Great flight, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Didn’t connect to entertainment didnt"
Cons: "Not getting new business configuration"
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: "The flight was oversold and we got bumped off with 20 other passengers even though we had all booked months in advance. I’m still not in Marrakech, now a flight to New Jersey. I’m so sad and it’s my wedding anniversary."
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: "I don't think I have ever rated any service negatively, but here's my first. TAP completely ruined my birthday trip that I have saved up for a long time for. DO NOT TRAVEL WITH THEM! I had a valid Schengen tourist visa issued by the Consulate of Portugal. At the time of visa issuance, the printer of the Consulate was not functioning, so part of the visa information was hand-written, but it was properly signed and stamped. The Consulate told me it's valid and said they have been doing so for ten years. The Consulate also said that they, not the airlines, have the sole authority to determine the validity of the visa. When I went to the airport to check in with TAP, TAP staff denied me boarding because they did not believe my visa was valid. I only learned later that this action was inconsistent with TAP's own internal policies. The staff at the kiosk told me that I could either ask for a refund or rebooking of the ticket. But when I called TAP the next day, I was told I could not get a refund even though they should not have denied me boarding. I called TAP many times and got a different answer each time. They simply refuse to compensate me for their own mistake. It's the most horrible travel experience I've ever had!"
Cons: "Flight got canceled and delayed, staffs very mean and unprofessional"
Cons: "Business flat seats quite restrictive"
Pros: "Staff courteous compared to our previous TAP FLIGHT"
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: "Seats felt smaller than most international flights"
Cons: "Rock hard seats. Surly stewardess. Mediocre to poor food."
Pros: "Paid a bit more for roomier seats up front and worth it. Seemed like newer aircraft with "leather" seats and better padding than the older aircrafts."
Pros: "There was great entertainment on the first flight"
Pros: "very rude empoyees at check in"
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: "The flight was on time. The airplane was clean, there is a lot of space between seats, the seats are confortable and each seat has a computer screen so you can play games, watch movies, news. Etc. The airplane is a brand new airbus."
Cons: "Airplane should have more bathrooms."
Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Staff was rude and food was terrible."
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"
Cons: "After we had to turn around to BOS because of a technical issue with the plane, the customer server was really unhelpful! I ended up figuring out a completely other flight, through another airline and booked myself on that flight. I worked with this Airline almost an hour to get myself on it and then it seems that it took TAP Portugal that hour PLUS SOME to suggest alternate flights to other stranded passengers."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "I enjoyed flying with tap"
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: "Good price. Fast, friendly crew."
Cons: "Incredibly tiny seats."
Pros: "very pleasant experience flying TAP. Baggage check was free, and for our international flight we had a top notch entertainment system in seat. Would definitely fly again!"
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."
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: "Good organized, friendly staff"
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."
