The other issue now for TP is its reliance on the Brazil market. With COVID-19 there out of control, I cannot see TAP resuming any operations to Brazil for the foreseeable future, which would likely free up an A21N that would have gone to BEL. For the foreseeable future (most of the rest of NS20), ...Jump to post
Did TAP pull out of JFK? JFK is returning either in November 2020 or in January 2021. The plan must be to retire the 7 A330-200 and keep both the 19 (+2 orders) A330neo’s and all the A321neoLR and respective orders for long haul. For medium/ short haul, we may see a big part of the A320 CEO family ...Jump to post

Fly TAP. They have service on board on all their flights except on LIS-FAOJump to post

I'd rather make a connection somewhere.
As for upcoming 321LR routes, TAP’s press release hints at few destinations: BOS (additional frequencies from LIS or new route from OPO?) IAD (already known - winter 2019 replacing 330) REC (additional frequencies from LIS or new route from OPO?) NAT (additional frequencies from LIS or new route fr...Jump to post

Is that an one off occurrence or are they switching TP259/262 to the A339 permanently?
I think it was a lat minute upgrade.
Pity. I have 262 booked to a month from today. I was hoping to catch an A339 ride.
Does TP operate OPO-GRU on an OPO-based 332? My impression was always that they had one 332 based there for flights to EWR, GRU and GIG (2x weekly each I believe). With EWR now moving to to the 321 (and frequencies increased from 2x to 5x, which makes sense), I wonder what this means for the Brazil...Jump to post
How many runways, boarding gates, boarding gates with jet bridges and parking stands does it have?Jump to post
If you’re travelling by an EU country to the USA through another EU country, it is probable that your first plane parks in a remote stand beacause of Schengen Agreement. A flight from FRA to MAD does not need to pass immigration but the plane which is taking you to MAD may go to a non-Schengen count...Jump to post
Yeah this will be a great year for backpackers... For customers it is certainly good as long as it continues. MAD-LIS-XXX is very often the cheapest option by a wide margin (often cheaper than flying non-stop with Norwegian to the US or with Ryanair to Europe). With so many flights on MAD-LIS you c...Jump to post
Staff cost may be slightly lower, but they need to operate with more staff than any other airline in Europe. For example an A320 they shall dispatch with five flight attendants instead of the required four. They got an new absurd boarding procedure with 5 queues which doesn't make any sense and the...Jump to post

The widebody fleet will consist of 21 A330-900neo and 7 A330-200 all of them are already retrofitted. There will be 14 A321neoLR if I’m not mistaken. A319 will be phase but there is the possibility of sttay with two of them I guess. All the A320 that will receive sharklets or already have them, will...Jump to post
LIS-SFO-LIS has impressive occupations.Jump to post
TP's LIS-LAD is a daytime flight. It would fit a US connection perfectly. After all, IAH-LAD was flown nonstop for decades. I have no doubt that capturing this market is part of the motivation for launching IAH. Not the whole thing but part of it. Nope, red-eye. https://flightaware.com/live/flight/...Jump to post
How do they do with their EWR service? Anyone know the LFs? TAP has been operating EWR for many years. They are even adding frequencies from Oporto (6xweek/A321LR) and continuing the daily flight from Lisbon with A330-200. The flight is always full as well as Boston, Miami and JFK. They are even tr...Jump to post
Too much, too fast. Montreal is the only solid add here, assuming any of it happens. They'll have enough trouble with the SFO/ORD/IAD adds this year. The sales are actually going very well... I'm sure they are. The fares have been dirt cheap. I don’t find 800€ cheap for LIS-ORD-LIS. Moreover, we ne...Jump to post

DL flew ATL-LIS last summer on the 763, but cut it this year in favor of starting BOS-LIS on the 752. I agree that doesn't bode well for TP to serve ATL-LIS successfully. Is ATL-LIS within the range of the 321LR? If that's doable, perhaps they wouldn't have to scrape too hard to fill the plane. I d...Jump to post
TAP has an extensive EURO network and given that their fares are usually less than most other carriers I have seen I wouldn't be surprised to see them make ATL work. Keep in mind that DL don't fly ATL-LIS evan though ATL has a much much much large US/Caribbean/SouthAm network when compared with TAP...Jump to post

Does then 321LR have range to operate TP’s routes in South America (CCS, FOR, REC etc)? I’m not sure about CCS but the other ones can be operated by A321neoLR which is an aircraft that can expand the network in terms of frequencies, I mean, Natal and Belém can be daily operated by this aircraft. So...Jump to post
It is not public yet but the plane will have 168 seats: 16 business class lie flat and 152 economy class seats with around 40 seats with more legroom (economy extra) Very cool seat layout.

Just to let you know, two more A330-900NEO in service!
CS-TUC is operating LIS-GRU on TP83 while CS-TUD will do the night flight to GRU on TP87.
Today, the three daily flights from LIS to GRU are being operated by A330neo since the first flight of the day is already operating with CS-TUB!
Does the A321NEO have the range to fly OPO-BOS-OPO? If so I could see TP flying the route 3x or 4x seasonally in addition to their LIS-BOS-LIS flights A321neoLR aircrafts will fly OPO-EWR 6 weekly so they are definitely able to fly OPO-BOS! Just to let you know, TAP’s A321NEOLR will have a configur...Jump to post
