Conclusion

It was another very good trip with TAP:

GVA Airport: A big airport with many stores. The terminal is not very good for spotting.

TAP Portugal: A very good airline in Europe sector, with the best staff and food! The cabin is a bit old but comfortable.

LIS Airport: From gate 22 have a good access to the exit. My bag take many time to arrive
