TAP - Lisbon to San Francisco non-stop

Our Swissair/United flight schedule from LIS to SFO has been changed to leave at 5:55 am instead of 7:50 am. They airlines is offering us the option to cancel with a refund. I've found a nonstop flight on TAP (the Swissair had a connection in Zurich) which leaves at a more reasonable time, and the cost isn't much more than we already paid.

We're flying Business class - has anyone flown on TAP transatlantic.in Business? Reviews I've looked at are mixed.

Well, for what it's worth, here's a pretty comprehensive video account by someone who took that very flight (same equipment according to Expert Flyer) a year or two ago. Certainly looks okay to me.


PS Swissair stopped flying a long time ago. Swiss International, the current flag carrier, is owned by Lufthansa.

Gardyloo - Thank you for that video - I had seen another which wasn't quite as complimentary.

And you are right about Swissair/Swiss International. Not having flown either of them, I didn't catch the proper name.

I got biz class tix on TAP last year but had to cancel and got refunded. I had researched them at the time and they looked fine, and a better price than many.

OP here - I was VERY pleasantly surprised to find that the TAP non-stop flight was $996 less for two seats than the Swiss International flight that included a stopover in Zurich! I booked the TAP flight, and cancelled the Swiss. Got an email right away from Swiss that the refund will be credited to my card.

And - we had felt we needed an extra day in Lisbon - so took care of that, too. So rarely does anything this good happen when plans are changed!
