I want to go to OPO next month. I have the option of FR rtn for €80, but as I always like to try new airlines, I saw Portugalia is €135 one way to OPO. I've looked at a trip report but I'd like some more recent opinions. I'd then take FR back to BCN as the timing is better. It's an E145 aircraft. Is it worth the extra splurge, or should I save my cents for Francesinhas?

Hi aerdingus! Portugalia is now owned by TAP and all their flights have a TP flight number, onboard catering is the same as on TAP mainline aircraft. Even though the aircraft and crew are in Portugalia colours/uniforms, they only operate for TAP. I personally find their ERJ comfortable for short hops and the F100 have good legroom but have now quite tired looking cabins . When they were an independent airline, operating under the NI code, public opinion in Portugal was that their product and service was superior to that offered by TAP. Hope that, somehow, I was able to be of help...
Have a great time in Porto, it is a lovely city with friendly people!

Hi! Thanks for the response. That's what I've heard, before they merged with TAP they were a great airline. I'm still thinking about it, we shall see how the finances work   Thanks, I can't wait to go to Porto, a few of my colleagues are from there & from what they say it sounds great.
