Cons: "No delay in departure"

Pros: "We missed the flight by five minutes do to our connecting flight being late. We had mechanical issues, weather delays and an aborted landing in Miami."
Cons: "Tap would not roll us over for the next day. We had executive tickets in business class. They wanted 3000.00 dollars each for the flight."

Pros: "Flight was canceled"
Cons: "Flight was canceled"

Pros: "The crew was good. The plane was clean. The snacks provided were good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed so that could improve. There were no entertainment options. It was a short flight but at least they should have a audio channel or something."

Cons: "The food was disgusting this time as well as the last time I traveled with TAP. The seats was uncomfortable and in leather like material witch made the seats very warm and sticky."

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "All great"

Cons: "The plane was delayed 20 minutes, then another 20 minutes, then another 20 minutes, ended up leaving over an hour late"

Pros: "The one glass of white wine I was served was delicious. Crew was friendly. Food was surprisingly elaborate for a short flight."
Cons: "Boarding process a bit chaotic. The process started before they were ready to let us on the plane. My special meal was forgotten until after meal service. They skipped our row for beverage service and there was nothing served prior to the meal."

Pros: "Self checkin, there was no line and things moved quickly."
Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late because the boarding process was so slow. They took forever and then literally bussed us to the other side of the airport to the budget carrier side, which wasted more time. Was a bit of a joke really. Served seafood snack, not everyone eats seafood."

Pros: "Scam"
Cons: "Do not sell flight you are not able to manage. Shame"

Pros: "Nothing went wrong so it is good enough for me"

Pros: "Really nice crew, good food and wine, very attentive and accommodating. I’m used to flying spirit and Norwegian and this was a huge upgrade, though there’s not much in flight entertainment. Definitely good and cheap. Will fly again."

Pros: "The tripulation are very nice people."
Cons: "The space between seats are small."

Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "Flight was over an hour late, and they would not let us take our carry-on luggage on the flight even though there was plenty of room in the overhead compartments, which caused us to miss our return flight home overseas. No customer service desk at the airport. Ended up costing hundreds of dollars more to book another flight home."

Pros: "Same as previous flight"
Cons: "Same as previous flight"

Pros: "Our flight was late, so we missed our connecting flight to Barcelona, but TAP had already rebooked us on a different flight and had boarding passes all printed out. Good Job."

Pros: "I like the flight per se and the crew attention"
Cons: "The boarding process. It was slow, disorganized, didn't take off on time and some people were rude including the searching process that I enter voluntarily because nobody directed me. I when you schedule a flight you should try to take off on time because it can be disruptive for everyone. And when you sell discount tickets at least say you are going to charge 45 dollars for the bag... i wouldn't purchase any discount offer"

Pros: "Easy mobile check in process,"

Pros: "Wonderful customer service!!"

Pros: "They gave us good snacks. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "We were delayed 1.5 hours. Had to sprint and almost missed my connecting flight."

Pros: "Cabin staff was nice"
Cons: "Very cramped seating; rude baggage handlers; bad system for boarding"

Cons: "The attendant who checked me in at the Porto airport was very rude and sarcastic. At the gate they said the flight would be delayed half an hour, however they just called us to start boarding a half an hour after the flight was expected to leave. At that time the passengers of the previous flight were just starting to leave the plane so everyone that was about to board then had to stand in the freezing cold tunnel way with all of our bags for another 20 minutes while the previous passengers got off. There was no food or any beverage other than water offered on the flight."

Pros: "No issues, short trip, friendly staff, comfortable ride..."

Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Slow baggage claim"

Pros: "The plane was new, clean, and spacious. The staff was mostly helpful and friendly,"
Cons: "Short flight so no entertainment or drink/food."

Pros: "Slept the entire way there. Comfy seats"

Pros: "Very quick and efficient"
Cons: "Carryin size is so small for the airline"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight from Porto to Lisbon was late. We almost didn't make our flight from Lisbon to Barcelona. Our luggage didn't make the connection."

Cons: "We had to pay for a check in luggage fee. Then flight was delayed for about an hour. The gate number change so we had to keep on checking to see what gate it was to be. They keeping on changing the delayed time so it end up being nearly two hours before we got on the plane. I was very disappointed that we didn't get where we needed to be on time. Our hour and 45 minute flight end up just wasting time waiting for the plane. They could of at least refund our check in bag fee for the inconvenient."

Pros: "Stay away from TAP. I wish the people at the counter were just rude - they were tormenting us and lying to me about my luggage. When they found out I insisted on not checking my bag, they told me they would "keep it" in the meantime. Turned out they went ahead and threw the bag onto the plane. We ended up having to go find it at lost and found. They initially told me it was going to only take 5-10 mins to retrieve my luggage, but then 40 mins passed and still nothing. My poor mom had to wait by the empty belt - and boarding started and the luggage still wasn't there. They forced us to pay 35 euros (it's principle, not the money) when their policy said nothing about it when I booked it on the website. My mom was in tears and I had the worst few hours of my life. TAP - you are disgusting. It takes a lot for me to be upset but you really did everything out of your way to make us suffer. Even told us we might have to miss our flight. You put a huge dent on my trip."
Cons: "Please see above."

Pros: "The crew."

Pros: "New plane. Great service."
Cons: "Seats are very small. No entertainment system."

Cons: "...do I really have to say anything else? I'm in a foreign country, jet lagged, and still wearing the clothes I've been marinating through multiple time zones. I'm not happy at all with this flight, and over 12 hours later, I feel disgusting, and my first day in Barcelona has been miserable because of it. I place all of the blame on the Lisbon connecting terminal. I am not happy."

Pros: "A short flight, on-time."
Cons: "Tiny seats"

Pros: "The plane was really comfortable and clean with plenty of legroom, and the staff friendly."

Pros: "The service was excellent. The help on board was extremely professional and polite. There was plenty of leg room and the bathrooms were fairly large too."
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Basically on time and the employees were very efficient and professional."
Cons: "Having to take a very crowded shuttle bus to the plane."

Cons: "the second flight was late by 30 min."

Pros: "We were shuttled to the plane then the plane wasn't ready, so the bus took us back. We just stood on the bus by the gate for a good 20min. Then went back to the plane again. This time it was ready for boarding. I don't understand why they took us if the plane was ready. Once we were there why did we go back to the gate again?? Get it together TAP. My first and only experience and it wasn't a good one."

Pros: "Comfort And good service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I purchased this ticket 4 months prior to flying....traveled half way around the world and the flight was oversold. I was bumped and left with people meeting in another country waiting for no one to show up. Go to hell TAP Portugal Airlines."

Pros: "Nice attendants"
Cons: "Flight didn't take off on time despite plane being there and people boarded. The plane was not at gate but instead we had to take a bus there and climb stairs."
