I would soon continue my trip to Munich on the same Airbus 319 that had just took me from Faro to Lisbon.
Boarding started perfectly on time in a very orderly and professional manner.
This time I had reserved an extra legroom seat in the better first half of the cabin which did cost me 25 EUR. However the fee was worth it as the seat was very comfortable with a lot of legroom and nice features like electricity plug or a tablet holder.
The flight ended up very full and we pushed back some minutes late for our journey of 2 hours 50 minutes to Munich. Safety demonstration was done manually as TAP unfortunately has removed the overhead screens from their medium haul fleet during cabin redesign.
Once into the flight the curtain to Business Class was closed but as mentioned before by me in other reports it looks very stupid that the curtain does just exist in the aisle and not over the seats.
About 30 minutes after take off the cabin crew offered this free cold snack box. It contained Portuguese products of a wrap, some cheese with crackers and a small chocolate. The snacks tasted ok but still I would have preferred a more substantial warm dinner like TAP used to serve on this route until ca. 2 years ago and what Lufthansa still does on the same route.
A trolley with a free selection of all kinds of drinks followed. I had some coke and tea.
The rest of the flight passed by quietly while I was reading. However crew never came back to e.g. conduct a second drink run which would have been nice on a flight of almost 3 hours.
Thanks for reading, FlyAlex
TAP Air Portugal
Lisbon - LIS
Munich - MUC
The seats were very comfortabel and the cabin crew friendly. Of course I appreciate TAP still serving free snacks and drinks at all. However it would be great if they would still serve warm meals on flights of almost 3 hours like e.g. Lufthansa still does on the same route.
