I am looking to book flights for spring and have found TAP have great fares and the only nonstops from Boston to Lisbon. I see that the baggage limits may be an issue but I hope to carryon our backpacks. Does anyone have experience with them?

I just flew home on a Lisbon - San Francisco flight with TAP. One checked bag was included in my fare, and I carried on my backpack. The flight was on time and smooth, the flight attendants were very pleasant. I have no complaints with this airline.

First one in 1977 by train. Many since then by foot. Next one ASAP.
Flew TAP, r/t, Boston to Lisbon, in 2018. Did not carry on backpack - my ticket included one checked bag. Very satisfied overall. Would certainly fly TAP again if the price was right.... Transferred in Lisbon for flight to Toulouse France (to begin my 2018 walk at Lourdes). Making that connection was pretty tight. Transport by bus from remote touch-down location to Lisbon terminal surprized me, and clearing customs and etc. went very slowly! Be warned!

I flew with them 2 years ago and had a great experience. Direct from Toronto to Lisbon (score!), friendly service, great price, checked my poles & knife... and my 30L backpack came on the plane with me.

I flew with TAP from Madrid to Toronto via Lisbon. Tap was very good, efficient and customer focused. Lisbon airport is smack in the middle of the fifties for services and time to process everything....... So thumbs up to TAP and thumbs down to Lisbon airport.

In April we flew TAP from Boston to Malaga with two 30 liters backpack , no problem at all. The seats were comfortable, plenty of leg room and good service, all at a very reasonable price. On their short hops within Europe , they use a smaller plane, so it’s a bit tighter. They still provide great service with a snack & drink even for a 45 minutes flight from Lisbon to Porto.
