Hello and welcome to my report of a TAP Portugal flight from Lisbon to Vienna. This the return journey from my highly enjoyable two-week vacation in Portugal with warm and sunny weather.

I arrived to the airport by rental car.
Walk to the check-in area.
The check-in area.
The waiting time for check-in was rather long even though I just had to drop-off my bag, as Lisbon Airport uses a self-service check-in system, were passengers who have not done online check-in have to print their boarding passes at a machine and afterwards have to drop off their baggage at the drop-off counter.
After check-in I visited the lavatory. It was dirty and broken.
Then I continued to security. Again I had to wait rather long. The whole process from arriving to the airport to passing security took me one hour. In my opinion, that is to long for an airport of Lisbon's size.
My flight on the FIDS.
The gate for this flight, S19.
Enough seating space available.
At the gate, I tried to do some spotting.
Unfortunately, spotting at the gate was nearly impossible as the view out of almost all windows was obstructed by a special kind of foil.
Airline: TAP Portugal Aircraft: A330-200 Age: about 18 years Registration: CS-TOG Name: Bartolomeu de Gusmão Flight Number: TP1274 Seat: 12G Load: about 95%
At 12:19 (WEST), boarding began 19 minutes late and priorities were respected.
After walking downstairs we had to wait in a small, crowded room for the bus to arrive.
In the bus.
Because we were behind schedule, the front stairs were opened for economy class passengers when I arrived.
Beautiful view of the nose/cockpit.
Entering aircraft and walking through business.
My seat 12G.
PTV screen. As on my previous flight the screen is VERY small and controlled via a handset. During boarding and taxi the screen displayed commercials as well as the safety video. After Takeoff, the screen was activated and displayed the moving map. 10 audio stations including pop and classical music were also available. Additionally, there is the option of downloading international e-papers from TAP's app prior to the flight.
Buttons for recline and to control the hardness of the seat cushion.
View from my seat.
Legroom, footrest and entertainment box.
13:02 (WEST), boarding was completed and we were pushed back. After that followed TAP's award-winning retro-style safety video and a short taxi, then we took off at 13:24 (WEST). Unfortunately, there are no take-off pictures this time as my seat was an aisle seat.
At 13:52 (WEST) the seatbelt-sign was turned off, the business curtain was closed and the moving map was activated.
Seat pocket content.
At 14:01 (WEST), meal service was started. In addition to a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, a box containing a chicken sandwich, a plum or pear juice and sugar for coffee and tea was offered. I chose a black tea and a cup of water. Overall the meal was good.
After the meal I visited the rear lavatory.
View from the porthole in the right rear door.
At 16:44 (CEST) we started our descend to Vienna. Then, at 17:07 (CEST), we landed, 13 minutes early. Last view of seat 12G.
Exiting the aircraft by jetbridge.
Walking to luggage claim.
My luggage arrived at belt 05.
The waiting time was shortened by funny lottery (18+) advertising. :)
Which way should I take? ;)
I had nothing to declare so I left straight for the suburban train line S7 to Floridsdorf which took me to the center at a low fare.

Some photos of my holidays in Lisbon, Sintra, Porto and Sesimbra. For those who are thinking of travelling to one of these cities, I can only recommend going there, as they are all really nice and beautiful.
