TAP Portugal LIS-MAD: 2 Gripes About a Short Flight

TAP Portugal is part of the #NoCollusion, No Albania for TPOL where I break my 100 country count mark. See the World Map for where I’ve been.

I’m sure someone will bitch about this bad Flight Review because that individual won’t get that I document each part of my trip as a way to tell a full story for future generations. I also do it to add to my ever growing list of airlines I have experienced. This review focuses on two things:

1. How much I hate taking the bus from the terminal. I would much rather walk down the jetway except for the fact that taking the bus gives me an opportunity to skip the line to the plane. That, of course, depends on picking the correct side of the bus.

2. My paranoia of missing my international flight which leads me to arrive way too early and spend way too much time at the Iberia Madrid Lounge. The flight to Madrid is one hour. It left at 6:55AM and arrived at 9:10AM. Even with a delay, I’m sure I could’ve taken a later flight given the 8:25PM departure time.

  1. Can I gripe with you??

    1. TAP airlines sucks, your lucky that your flight did not have any major issues.TAP customer service is beyond horrible. They just dont care.
    2. Mad airport transfers suck if your flying out with Iberia (although the lounge is not bad, food can be better) Other carriers not so bad but its bc the of the separate terminals.
    3. Ur paranoia is warrantied I almosted miss my international Iberia flight bc of transfer time.
    4. The problem with the bus is that its always packed, why cant they allocate more buses per person? Wouldnt that make it more comfortable and easier?
    5. How come no masks?
