The Worst

The ground staff is unhelpful. It is almost as if they don’t want you to fly.

Actually getting my checked luggage back would have been nice

Pros: "The crew was attentive but only on the basic standard service."
Cons: "I truly love that there are very few travelers. Also, I went through a lot getting to have done a covid test in order to travel, no one asked for it! Also when filling the custom forms they could have been and explain that one paper form was enough for a whole family"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Seats were comfortable. Plenty of food was included in the flight. And service was good."
Cons: "Greater weight allowance for carry-on luggage."
Pros: "nothing - they misinformed me left and right so I couldnt make properly informed decisions and then denied me boarding and told me to pay for a new flight after having spent over 750 and 3 days 2 nights at the airport due to the mishaps."
Cons: "staff that gives the correct information so u can properly plan for the check in and boarding procedures and compassion to advocate to let me onto the flight they made me jump thru hoops just to get onto."
Pros: "It was Okay"
Cons: "I m disappointed with the online deal I have booked my self with two checked bags & paid extra for that but I had to pay £ 80/-"
Pros: "I didn’t like a thing. The crew from the gate all the way to the end was rude and nasty. The crew scanning people to get on the plane were so rude at the beginning it was the worst and I fly for my work and I’ll never fly TAP air Portugal again."
Cons: "Train the staff to be nice and pleasant"
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 !!!"
Pros: "Good crew. No crying or screaming children is always good. Dinner was decent & nice that it comes with a glass of wine if you wish."
Cons: "Packed in a sardine can for 9 hours is not fun. Being bussed out to a remote location for a wide bodied plane is crazy. At least at ORD we had a gate."
Pros: "The aircraft was relatively new and well appointed."
Cons: "Service with a frown by half the staff. Took away headphones that I had stowed aside for a later time while taking a nap and gave it to another passenger - on a long haul business class flight. Poor service culture. Outbound flight was terrible. Six hour delay. No apologies. Rude telephone staff."
Pros: "The boarding procedure was much more organized than the previous flight."
Cons: "They served fish on board, and the odor stuck around for awhile."
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster that took an extra 30 min"
Pros: "Comfortable seats with nice pillow and blanket"
Cons: "Boarding was awkward and slow."
Pros: "Cod fish meal was nice! Lots of movie options, and the staff were nice."
Cons: "Foot rests would have been great to have. The boarding process was exhausting. A long line for another passport check (after the immigration check point) and the long bus ride to the aircraft."
Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."
Cons: "The headphone situation was confusing and no charging ports Fairly comfortable for an older plane"
Cons: "Hand luggage weighing queue delayed flight, Gatwick flights delays, missing luggage at Lisbon,"
Cons: "They are very sneaky and try to make you check carryon bags - for $120. Will never fly w them again."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "The flight was late. They lost my luggage! No time to take the food. Very bad experience"
Cons: "The boarding seemed disorganized with a lack of clarity about those with no wheeled luggage allowed in first."
Pros: "A short but very pleasant flight and food was served, excellent in every category."
Cons: "Nothing, it was the best short flight I've ever had. The staff were very attentive and did a great job of keeping everyone happy."
Pros: "The people on the plane were super nice and the flight was nice as well. the price was cheaper than many others."
Cons: "I am used to traveling continents with other companies. There has always been 2 check in bags allowed with no extra charge as long as you are under 23kg on each. I get to the airport with my 2 bags ready, TAP tells me on large holidays, they only allow 1 bag to be checked to my specific African destination until January 11. And that one bag will cost me $120. They will not let me have the second one. Who does that? How much sense is this supposed to have. I checked with others and they do not do that. That rule rule is unfair and racist. Now that I am back, I have a bag missing. Wow!"
Pros: "The tripulation are very nice people. The food is better last year. Is good."
Cons: "The space between seats are small."
Cons: "I was rerouted to Madrid and did not have the correct timely information to cancel and rebook or to get a credit toward a future flight. There was no clear item on line to be used for my problem."
Pros: "Nothing to like. Rude staff."
Pros: "Overhead luggage space"
Cons: "Entertainment pretty bad. Boarding very disorganized, takes way to long, getting on and off. had to show Passport and boarding pass way too many times, inefficient. Seat was more spacious than going, but not much padding for long flight. No air control No safety demos"
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!"
Cons: "Passenger was refused at check in because, according to the counter clerk, the ticket was not purchased in the country of residency but online in US. As a result, i lost the money, the passenger did not fly, and no refund was issued. this is the first time i ever heard of such BS. Not happy."
Cons: "The long delay, more than 1.5 hours."
Cons: "Stuardes don't have a sense of what costumer service is.. 6 hour flights and their plain aren't equipt with monitors to watch and entertain yourself Thank God I understood portugués but their translation to English was poor Food was not amazing I've been traveling since I was 6yrs old and I never felt so strongly about an airline... Not even easy jet"
Pros: "I was very comfortable with empty seats in my row."
Cons: "No entertainment facilities."
Cons: "I had an awful experience. A flight attendant named Comissário Bruno denied me a second dessert when I asked for one. I was flying business class on flight TP059 on March 4 2018 and have Gold status on Star Alliance. Many passengers had declined dessert and I felt extremely embarrassed by having been denied food on a plane for the first time in my life. The attitude and lack of tact of Comissario Bruno on TP059 spoiled the whole flight experience for me."
Cons: "This event refers to my TAP flight from Lisbon to Heathrow on 21-Jan-2018. We arrived to the airport nearly 2 hours before departure time, waited 35min in the security checks and my girlfriend was held 20min in the passport control. While she was queuing for the 2no police officers to check her passport, an airport assistant came to the queue and asked who was due to board in TP364 to Heathrow. She was made aware that my girlfriend was there due to board that flight. In the meantime I made my way to the gate to make the gate assistants aware that she was held in the passport checks and was already on her way to the gate. Having said that, the zealous assistants in the gate have closed the gate in front of me, 18min before scheduled departure time and - "very kindly" - told me that I wouldn't be boarding that flight anymore even though my girlfriend have arrived in the meantime. One can imagine the frustration I felt finding out that the flight departure was delayed and that the flight actually departed 40min late. At that time I was already suffering the extortion of the customer service from TAP, claiming from me circa 400Eur from each of us for a one way ticket in the next flight to London. Therefore... until I remember this... I AM NOT FLYING TAP ANYMORE... I am very proud of being Portuguese but in similar situations that occurred with me flying British Airways, Lufthansa or Air Italia, I have always been treated with much more respect and customer care!"
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."
Pros: "Though it was a short flight, they did offer food and left mine on my table since I was sleeping. I woke up super thirsty and hungry so that was a nice surprise."
Cons: "TAP is perpetually delayed. It’s annoying."
Cons: "Boarding difficult for immigration"
Pros: "Ability to see a bit of Lisbon on the way"
Cons: "Baggage charges that were not shown anywhere on the website. A nasty surprise when we checked luggage. Lost wallet on plane and customer service was unhelpful."
Pros: "When boarding the fligh TP 209 on October 27 2017 I found that my seats that I paid for well in advance are taken by other pasengers an I am given a totally different and very bad seats. What did I paid for, after all. Why push people to buy seats and then do not provide. I did not get the service I paid for and will Be requesting my money back for the complete flight."
Cons: "The stuard I tried to discuss the matter did not even try to help, instead he only smiled in return and suggested to file a complaint. That was totally unaccepltable."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!"
Cons: "Everything but specially the fact that there was no Business class but tickets Were sold and in the end not even assigned seats. No previous info or whatsoever ... this company is becoming worst than a low cost ... well much worst !!!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable in economy although no one is ever happy with how little they recline, crew was friendly and helpful. Entertainment selection was larger than most airlines I've flown on."
Cons: "Flight left Toronto at midnight, the crew served a meal and it was about 2 hours after departure that the cabin lights were finally turned off. On an overnight, overseas flight, turn off the lights and service breakfast with a noon arrival like all the flights I've taken to London do."
Pros: "Check-in and baggage drop was fast. Food was good. Cabin crew did their job. Economy plus seats are comfortable and leg room was ok (I'm 1,84m tall). So, smooth and easy flight."
Cons: "We arrived with 20 Minutes delay...and it was just the first shuttle of the day... could have been better"
Pros: "There was great entertainment on the first flight"
Cons: "The movies could have been better. Food was average."
Pros: "Center aisle seat was comfortable and pnethy of room for my carryon overhead and underseat."
Cons: "I would like to see all TAP planes come with a standard entertainment option on the headrest in front of you with the advanced menu option of movies, games, radio, etc. and ensure all headphone jacks are operational. (Thisnflight the screen was messed up...not something you want to look at for 8 hours. ) I couldn't eat half the food because the salad wasn't anything but cabbage and a tomato and the corn and meat dish was cold and weird. I don't know what the dessert was but I got it down. I think the sandwich I got before landing was pesto and mayonnaise but I'm not sure. I didn't get much of it down before gagging. I wish when booking a flight you were given the menu or you could choose early in the flight and then be served. I bet it would cut down on wasted food and money."
Pros: "Successfully landed"
Cons: "2.5 hours in line to check in with the one agent working if you were not a gold whatever member. The same agent was at the gate taking tickets loading a single bus up at a time while everybody waited for the same bus to return to be reloaded. Ended up leaving an hour late due to being unable to load people on the plane, then a ground crew issue with loading bags extended the delay. No food service and voucher was given to cafeteria on exact opposite side and floor of airport. only reason we were able to use was because of the huge delays and problems trying to load the airplane. After the safety demonstration the flight attendants went to rear of plane and sat down in their jump seats for rest of flight. People were approaching them asking for water otherwise they ignored us. After landing stairs were used at rear of plane and door was opened. As we were two rows from the rear my girlfriend asked the male attendant 4 times if we were allowed to use the rear stairs as we were bus loading anyways, he never answered, looked at or acknowledged her speaking to him, he just stood at rear of the aisle ( 3.5 feet away) adjusting his tie and flattening his jacket sleeves. Was very awkward."
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Missed that flight because of previous delay"
