Nice crew, food was good. 2.5 hour flight, so entertainment is not valid for this review.
However, the boarding was absolutely atrocious. They had two Dutch attendants dealing with a fully booked Airbus flight. I arrived at 11 AM and did not get to the front of the line until 1 PM. They actually had to take off later, as in, push the flight later, because of their inability to bring someone else to the check-in counter to help with boarding. For the Dutch and their famous understanding of efficiency and staying ahead of the curve, this was both frustrating and not understandable. Not really TAP's fault...
I did not get the meal of my choice, also as I tried to check in at home, the system did not give me much choices to respond to, instead the system blocked me entirely from early check in and it wasn't enough time to make calls. I think check in should be made available at least 48-72hrs ahead not just 24hrs. Also walking from terminal to terminal in Frankfurt is way too far, it seems about 2miles + of walk.
The seat was comfortable (for economy), service pleasant, food nothing special but fine, entertainment good. Boarding was efficient; there was a slight delay due to de-icing, but that's normal
It was impossible to download a boarding pass on either Lufthansa's website or any other (code share with United). Lufthansa gives you a number to call but they are open only 9-5 weekdays; when I called their regular office, I listened to a very annoying message routing for 15 minutes before hanging up. They have to work this out better, though I must say that at the United gate I could print it out easily at the machine, and the staff there was exceptionally helpful
we were stranded in aberdeen due to flooding and were to miss our connection to vietnam. we were expecting the worst when we called BA but the service representative could not have been more helpful or efficient. she had us booked in the next couple of days all the way to our door. she was positive and we could tell she really cared about our plight.
