TAP airlines & other questions

Jump to last reply

I am looking at flights to Portugal from Boston in Oct. When I look at flights I look at cost and # of stops preferring non or 1 stop. TAP airlines seems to be less than some of the other airlines. Has anyone had any experience with TAP? I know that? Might be rather subjective. If anyone asked my experiences with Delta or USAir I could share some negative experiences, but also some positive.

We plan to start our trip in Porto, train to Lisbon, and on to Spain. I can get a TAP flight from Boston to Porto, 1 stop in Lisbon for $815 ( we are flying back from Barcelona.) total 10 hrs. Another option is to fly TAP nonstop to Lisbon, 6 hrs for $801, then catch the train to Porto (app $84 for 2). The flight gets in aroundc7:30 a.m. With plenty of time to catch a train. I was thinking we could nap on the 2 1/2 train ride since we will have the opportunity to see scenery when we go back to Lisbon. Flying into Porto gets in around 11:30 or later depending On what flight we choose. So-o-o, does it make sense to fly nonstop? I am hoping that airfare will drop slightly and that i can get flights in the $700-750 range.

Any input will be appreciated!
