"no seat back tv screens"

(Australia)

The aircraft was modern. There were no seat back tv screens, but they had some sitcom playing on small overhead screens. Toilets were modern. They didn't have a tap, instead they had hand sanitizer and moist towels.

"Would use TAP again without hesitation"

(United Kingdom)

No problems, would agree that upholstery is a little tired but both planes were clean. On outbound TAP Portugal flight (A319) meal was a sandwich and fruit smoothie, quite nice! Meal on return (A320) was a warm pasta dish which I quite enjoyed. Crew on both flights were good, no complaints there. No entertainment but only a 2.5 hour flight. Return flight was a little disorganised in boarding, better communication from handling agents would have eliminated this, boarding from coach was not controlled ie, no agent to guide/advise to which entry to use this would have made boarding more efficient. Seat pitch pretty standard for class and aircraft. Would use TAP again without hesitation.

"the seat was really uncomfortable"

(Portugal)

To start the plane was delayed 30 minutes and when we were inside the aircraft waiting the A/C wasn't on so the temperature in there was hot! We were in the worst seats in the last possible row, just near the two bathrooms of economy class so of course we didn't sleep. For an almost 4 hour night time flight the amenities weren't good enough (nor even a pillow was offered!) and the seat was really uncomfortable.

"all legs were on time"

(United Kingdom)

I read a lot of negative comments about TAP and was seriously worried before my travel. They could not have been more wrong. My family travelled MAN-LIS-EWR-LIS-MAN in early April and the experience was excellent. A319/A320 on the MAN-LIS-MAN legs with lovely seats legroom hot meal and wine. A330 on the LIS -EWR- LIS legs. On the outbound we were on the oldest model in the fleet CS-TOH and on the return the youngest CS-TOP. The staff on all legs were very friendly the food on the New York legs was excellent (we had the fish on both legs) and their was plenty of beer and wine including sparkling wine. All legs were on time and we found Lisbon Airport a pleasure to transit through. The older A330 had a less advanced entertainment system but did have the nose cam which was great for take off and landing. The newer plane had the latest interactive touch screen system with lots of choice with both systems offering lots of English language selections. I would recommend and definitely use this airline again.

"airplane was so old"

(Brazil)

I flow a round trip from Brazil to Portugal with TAP seating in the economy class in Jan/2014. Airplane was so old that the TV screen was very small (maybe 4 inches length) and no possibility to see any video on demand. The movies started all together. Food from Lisbon to Brazil was simply horrible: a bland rice with chunks of a dry chicken. There was also a pudding whose taste I could not distinguish. At least the bread was good.

"26A seat is one of the best seats"

(Brazil)

26A seat is one of the best seats in TAP's A340-300. Seat has extra legroom for compared with the rest of the Y class standard. Normally these seats also get be served first as they are located in the beginning of the aisle separations (toilets or galleys) the easy access to the toilets is also good although it's proximity can be annoying.
