Cons: "Use jet bridge instead of bus gate"
Cons: "Snack at end of flight was good but lunch was not good and the dinner in Executive Class going over was not good"
Cons: "We booked business class. JFK to LIS very nice. Seats were very comfortable and reclined flat. More leg room than in other business class seats. What they called business from LIS to Rome was just regular uncomfortable across economy seats with no one in the middle seat."
Cons: "My wife and I paid for a better seat, (online) but when we boarded they told us that was impossible. They kept our money !!!"
Cons: "Incoming Delayed & outbound delayed 2 hrs as a result"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew friendly on airport and flight. Plane was clean and sits were ok."

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "All great"
Cons: "The headphone situation was confusing and no charging ports Fairly comfortable for an older plane"
Pros: "the crew was very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "The Lisbon airport could have more places with working electrical plugs or USB ports in order to charge devices while waiting for your flight."
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: "Crew service was excellent, food even hetter"
Pros: "Good vegetarian meal. Great price."
Cons: "Those seats might be ok on a short hop, but a five-hour intercontinental in the middle of the night? Price is cheap, but personally never again."
Cons: "I arrived 13 hours late, had two extra flights. I was delayed 3 hours first flight, 1.5 hours second flight after watching two flights that I “wasn’t allowed” to be on depart right in front of me at 9 and 10 instead of the 11 that they rebooked me on. Once I landed in Lisbon after the second flight that o wasn’t supposed to take. We missed the connection by 5 minutes and there were many people flying to my same destination. I had to wait 5 hours in Lisbon when I shouldn’t have ever went to Lisbon. I bought a ticket from Newark to Zürich through Porto 10 hours in total. I think TAP overbooked everyone and seated us on purpose. The secondflight was delayed due to “bad weather” and it was perfectly nice outside. Shame on TAP. I’m sure other people are complaining."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Planes clean and in good condition."
Cons: "Crowded and late departure."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great."
Pros: "Very nice flight. Complimentary wine, meals and movies. We were in Economy Plus so the leg room was quite good."
Pros: "All except for service to handicapped."
Cons: "I mad reservation listing that I needed wheel chair assistance due to walking limitations. Upon flight arrival no service was provided not was it provided on my return trip."
Pros: "The stewards and stewardessen were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "The worst airline"
Cons: "Nothing meal was fine , flight on time, good experience."
Pros: "Anything I liked feels inconsequential."
Cons: "My wife and I arrived to the airport for our honeymoon extremely excited. We had been saving for our trip to Italy for months, and we were finally going to get things started. Everything fell apart when we went to check in and we were told that my wife couldn’t use her ticket because she had changed her last name. We were told that there was no way that the name on the ticket could be changed because of TSA regulations. Of course, we were also told that we could have changed the name had we purchased a more expensive ticket. In other words, we were lied to and told the issue was regulation, when really they wouldn’t help us because we couldn’t afford a more expensive ticket. The only help we were given was the pleasure of paying over $1,500 more to get my wife on the flight. I am in the process of trying to get this refunded, but as of now we have paid twice for my wife to fly, and neither ticket has been refunded. We may have accidentally broken a rule, but the only function that rule seems to have is to make us pay twice for the same seat. As of now, I would never fly this airline again, and I would warn everyone away from it. I will update this post if TAP does the right thing by two honeymooners."
Pros: "Very friendly personnel at gate."
Cons: "Arrogant crew. Hid in galley behind curtain for most of the flight. For several hours not even the offer of a cup of water! No possibility to charge electronics in economy class. Charge of $ 75.00 for first bag on an international flight?!? We're not talking about a budget airline, but THE airline of Portugal!"
Pros: "Of no change is BULLSHIT"
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"
Pros: "There was good variety of films and food was decent."
Cons: "(1) TAP has terrible customer service and support. Was told on check-in that flight did not include checked luggage which is bizzare/unreal for an international flight especially since I also paid to upgrade my ticket. Even in explaining to me the person on the phone was rude. This was very disappointing as I had such an amazing trip to end on this sour note. (2) The boarding process took forever. They made us line up about 45 minutes before we actually boarded. So we were all standing around as opposed to being seated in waiting area. We did not board until after our take-off time. (3) Seats were really tight, uncomfortable and don't recline much."
Cons: "They were lying about a supposed compensation for denied boarding which was supposed to be handed out in Lisbon. I didn't expect this behavior from grown up people, and such a company in Europe. TAP should be excluded from star alliance."
Cons: "The terminals they use have no express lanes for biz travel. Very stressful particularly if short layover time."
Pros: "Nice little snack, horrible coffee"
Cons: "2 hour delay for a 30 minute flight. Really?"
Cons: "They gave my 70-year old mother only a few hours notice that they were changing her one-stop four-hour 6AM flight into an 8AM multi stop 14-hour marathon. In fact, she was already asleep when they changed her flight, so she was already at the airport when she found out about the change. To do this to a 70-year old woman is reprehensible. Worse, after 2-hours with customer service, nobody there made any real attempt to remedy the situation or offer any compensation. Worst airline experience EVER."
Pros: "Boarding was excellent. Flight was relatively smooth."
Cons: "Seats in economy were uncomfortable. Food was fair, at best. Wine was offered with dinner(a plus) but only once."
Pros: "Was able to sleep most of the flight and we took off on time"
Cons: "Checking a bag took almost an hour."
Pros: "Some staff were helpful"
Cons: "To start off our trip we weren't allowed to get on the plane until an hour after our boarding time. After we were allowed on, the air conditioning was not working and continued to sit on the tarmac not even leaving our terminal for another two hours. Within this two hours there were many elderly people asking for help and one specific gentleman whom was in his late 70s, informed the people around him that he had a pacemaker was pleading to get some air conditioning to the point where 6 people on the airplane were fanning him off. It was 90 degrees in the airplane and we had been sitting in the plane without any help even pleading with the attendents to let the elderly off so they did not pass out. Once we reached the 2 hour mark without any ac the gentleman in his late 70s was beginning to lose consciousness and many people had to call the emergency services, and the crew on flight TP214, tried to tell us everything was fine while the plane was pulling away from the terminal ... as they were giving the man oxygen, even though the elderly gentleman had lost the ability to communicate verbally and was about to pass out. They had to pull the plane back off the tarmac fully delaying us 3 hours in the process making us miss our other two flights. Once we were finally in the air for the 6 hour flight our entertainment system was not working so we were left to twiddle our thumbs for the remainder of the trip. It really ruined what seemed to be an exciting trip and I highly doubt we would ever take TAP Portugal ever again or recommend it to anyone no matter the price."
