For those of you trying to keep track of airlines honoring error fares, TAP is kind of 1-1. They cancelled some of these flights to/from Singapore, but some people still have active tickets.

Last April they had an error fare from Tel Aviv that they honored. They even moved flights to different airlines due to the conflict in the region if people asked since TAP wasn't flying to TLV anymore.

TP - TLV-LIS - $338 r/t - Business

Jokes aside, kudos to the pilot.
I saw that. Scary!

no communication from booking.com and Tap refunded booking.com for the fare 22nd of March. Booking,com has not refunded me or contacted me about the booking. .
I don't find in my experience booking.com an ethical OTA. Unfortunately I couldn't get it to checkout on Tap directly.

I'm in the same position as you right now.. My tickets are both still alive right now, Travel date is mid August.
In a weird Limbo state, hoping to booking my accommodations and tickets out of Europe soon, but am wondering how much notice will TAP give if they were to cancel my flights.
I sure hope they don't cancel 1-2 weeks close in to my departure, that would really suck.

I strongly suggest anyone booking positioning flights and hotels use refundable options...

Has anyone submitted a complaint with (dutch) consumer protection org? Thinking of doing it this time because airline cancellations at whim are going too far in my view.

Tap emailed me a cancellation, but my OTA says all is confirmed and did not get any refund. So I thought: if the OTA thinks all is okay, maybe I could ask them to re-issue the ticket so TAP stops the refunding process and we might be able to fly. For this plan, I need a valid reason for a re-issue. A date change is costly one, but there probably is a cheaper excuse for a ticket re-issue.

Anyone has some bright ideas?

Great idea! Thanks

Update: Agent was willing to do, but then it got declined by the GDS as it turns out the booking was cancelled by the airline...

which they should have already contacted you as it would have come up as cancelled on their queues and their job is to manage their queues, and also should have processed your refund without you having to contact them. Booking.com? They still not told me mine is cancelled. Still have my money. Still looks confirmed on their site. It's really shoddy work not contacting customers with cancelled flights.

Yup, Go2gate / Booking. They now changed the plot, saying I was the one who requested a refund....
