Hey :)

This is my flight report from Lisbon to Brussels with TAP Portugal in Business Class
The flight duration was 2h13 and arrived 14 minutes earlier

Check the video of my flight:





Lisbon Airport


I did the check-in in the Business Class Check-in Area, located after the main entry, on the left side. After that I walked through the security via Green Way, available for Business Class passengers.



Before boarding I also spotted a Boeing 737 from Horizont (operating charter flights) and other from Royal Air Maroc

Flight


The boarding was made at gate 26. First were the families with children and people with disabilities followed by Business Class passengers, Star Alliance Gold and Silver, TAP Plus and then Economy Class passengers.

I boarded the CS-TTG, an almost 18 years old aircraft, named Humberto Delgado, an old Portuguese Air Force General who tried to overtook the dictatorship government in Portugal back in 1950’s. This aircraft had the new cabin interior retrofit, equipped with Recaro seats. The business and economy plus seats had power outlet, adjustable headrest, support for tablet and reclined seat. The other seats, with green colour, had less pitch, were less comfortable and didn’t recline.



Catering


As appetizer was smoked chicken with cheese from Azores Islands and green salada. As main course I ate Cappellacci Pasta stuffed with Squash with Gorgonzola cheese, walnuts and grilled Squash. For dessert was an amazing Lemon Pudding, Coconut Milk and Pistachios. They also had a selection on red, white wines and champagne.

Approach and Landing

As TAP's Aircraft Maintenance Engineer, I was invited to land in the cockpit and had the oportunity to record it. Amazing as usually. During approach we flew to BUN VOR, turned to the final approach and landed on runway 25R and then taxied to stand A54.





I disembarked by gate A54 and walked nearly 15 minutes to claim my baggage
