Check-in

I arrived in Terminal 1 of Lisbon International Airport 1 hour and half before the departure and checked-in at TAP’s Business Class Counters located in the left side after the departures main entry. The Lisbon Airport had unlimited Wi-fi.



Departures

After check-in I proceeded to the security fast lane, located near the Turkish check-in counters. After a quick process I entered the duty free area and headed to gate 14.



Boarding

The boarding was made on time and respecting the priorities: Business Class, Star Alliance Gold and Silver Card, TAP Corportate and TAP Plus.

Take-off & Cruise

In the Business class only the first 2 rows were occupied so I was seated at row 3. 10 minutes after boarding the aircraft pushed back and departed to North, 10 min after the scheduled. When the aircraft reached the cruise altitude, the captain turn-off the fasten seatbelt sign. The weather was fine during the entire flight.



Catering

The breakfast was served 30 minutes after the departure and included ham, cheese, chorizo, lettuce, blackberry jam, butter, pineapple and oranges, yogurt and a sort of warm breads.

Arrivals

After landing the aircraft quickly arrived at the gate and I disembark 10 minutes after the landing. The Geneve Airport was very small (compared with the Zurich Airport) and just have 1h of free Wi-fi. The baggage claim process was very fast because I pick-up my bag just 10 minutes after disembark. In the Arrivals area you have access to the main exit for taxi. If you continue inside the terminal you can take the train to the city center. After the baggage claim and before you leave the passengers restricted area you can print your free train ticket to the city center.
