Damages

They lost my baggage, and the baggage of my marketing director.. Then on Monday we were forced to buy few NECCESERY things like mobile phone chargers an 1 man suit and 1 women suit because we had bussiness meeting on Monday... They refused to compensate us, and they were giving BS answers.. First they say they don't need to compensate on dalayed baggage on return flights, we asked them to send where is this written, so they stop spinning that, but started spinning that we were deprived of our baggage for small period of time (more then 24h), we again asked them to show we're is this written, and they send Article 19 Montreal agreement, which is again BS because in that article is not stated any necessary time period to be deprived of baggage to be compensate... The bill they need to compensate is 1000, nothing but know it's a question a principle... Sincerly

They suck

TAP Air Portugal - They suck
The absolute WORST AIRLINE IN THE WORLD!!! I could not be more disgusted with this airline by their lack of competence, lack of customer service and simply not caring!! For the past couple of months, it has been one issue or setback or headache after the next. The website/app are both horrendous to navigate and crash constantly. When I called customer service about not being able to access my flight via app they could not resolve the issue. Speaking of customer service, the agents on the phone are not properly trained on how to effectively fix issues. They give you a constant loop of bogus excuses and promises that result in no progress. Some of the agents are arrogant and haughty, however I did not enable them. Apart from the various issues I had with the *** online resources and customer service, that isnt even the worst part of my experience. Today, I am supposed to be leaving for an international flight with this airline, but to no avail. A few days ago- I received a flurry of e-mails from TAP stating they cancelled and refunded my flight. Thing is, I DID NOT SUBMIT NOR APPROVE of this!! I pull up my flight and poof it is magically gone! This is days before my flight and naturally I feel a wave of panic. For three days straight I called customer service constantly. I asked for answers as to why and how this happened without my approval. No success! I pleaded with them as they showed ZERO sense of urgency. Meanwhile my entire big trip to Europe is riding on this flight!! They kept feeding me false promises and nonsense. I demanded to speak to a supervisor who could fix this- of course I was declined. They kept trying to contact the back office to resolve this case.. but nobody answered. I was absolutely livid, frustrated and thoroughly displeased with this horrid booking and customer service experience. By chance, I had family in Portugal this week and they went to the TAP airport help desk in Lisbon and they were fed the same line of crap. What kind of customer service is that???!! GARBAGE. In the end, accountability prevails. I am sharing my VALID experience and exposing their crap company. They sure as *** will NEVER receive my business nor my familys again. That is how they will be held accountable. F off TAP!!! To any seeking advice on the validity and/or quality of this airline. I am BEGGING you- do yourself a favor and DO NOT book with this incompetent, *** and non-empathetic company!!! An absolute JOKE of a company. There are tons of better options out there.

Canceled flight

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
It was a disaster!! Our flight had delay and we lost 2 other flights after that! They didnt even answer the phone or reply to me when I visited them at the customer service! It is so irresponsible of the agency. I spent about 1000 euros for getting 2 flights and reserve one night at the hotel. The company should take responsibility and answer the costumers inquiries.

This is not a complaint.

I have been trying unsuccessfully to speak with a representative of your airline using your 800-221-**** number. I have made more than a half a dozen attempts and failed. My wife and I are scheduled to leave San Francisco, California bound for Florence, Italy on June 2, 2024 on your flights #238 & #876. My name is Charles Valorz and my wifes name is Suzanne. I am trying to select an aisle seat and adjacent seat for these flights. I am 86 years old and my wife is 80. We are not decrepit nor in any way crippled. Just trying to select seats for these two flights. Can you help us? Thanks for any assistance you can provide. Sincerely, Charles Valorz

Make Payment

It is a nightmare. The worst trip of my entire lire. The worst travelling experience. The employe at the check in an bordering was completely unfit for his job. He refuse to me and my daughter to keep our bording bagage. Saying he never saw this. My médication was inside. I told security i need my medication. They let me take the important ones. But I had to check again my bagage. Then at bording this représentatif of TAP was there. I told him in front of everyone look for someone that in your life. Everyone has their bording suit cases. And assure myself Everyone understands. The employe was from middle est. Very racist and rude he said ya go now trowing his hand in the air. When we arrive I never got my suitcase. That cause me many problems. I got very sick I was couldnt fly. The pilot escort me Out plane. I had to go airport hospital and transfer to Général Hospital of Athens. Public Hospital where I stayed 7 Day. I was treat like shit.This was *** I couldnt have a ticket untill january 26. I called so many times tap. People working there where hanging up on me. I lived *** I was lost in a city with no close no bagage. Bécause for à second time the suitcase got lost. Mine and my daugthers one. Even the Embassy of Canada try to help and TAP was not coopérative. Finaly, they returned the suitcases without my first one with my cell and money and médication. All my important stuff. We are january 22. I am still in Grèce. TAP got me a ticket for january 26. But I need to make a paiement online and Visa refuse to let me pay online. Because I got fraud on my acount. I cant pay at the airport because TAP dont operate there. Bravo! Now I am still in Grèce. I had no choice of buying clothes, personnal hygene products, food, and rent hotels. And I dont tell you about the language I dont speak. No phone number no phone nothing. I had also bought a phone to try to help me. It is just a daily nightmare that never ends. Tell me what should i do and where can I get White to be refund for all this. Where do I complain Can I receve indemnisation. This experience is a crazy one time. Nobody understand the complexity of this huge trauma I Will never forgot. Brigitte Boisvert Number in Grèce +30 6943****36. Brigitteboisvert980@***.com.

My flights

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
They had us enter an area that was blocked off once we had our passports checked. There were not enough chairs. We stayed there for 1.5 hours...could not leave. Then they had us line up in zones...waited in line for almost and hour. Then they boarded us. The slowest and least efficientbbiarding I have ever experienced. I will never TAP again. They also forced me to check my carry on.

Luggage

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Transferred from United to TAP in Newark, NJ due to missing United connection. TAP employees in Newark were great; however, we're now on our 4th day in Rome without our luggage despite seeing a report that our bags were loaded on the flight after ours. TAP has claimed they've had one of the 2 missing bags for 2 days, but can't seem to get it delivered.
