As I said in my first post, the fall is a few hundred dollars cheaper than the peak summer. You can use Google Flights as a guide to find working dates, but you'll have to search TAP Air Portugal's website yourself to find the flights and book because Google Flights can't deep-link to TAP's website.

Be interested to see if anyone books it - or their thoughts on whether it would be accepted, as it actually covers (albeit with the awful layovers) the dates I'm currently looking at.

Only seems to be available through OTA's - google flights is showing the fare but generally coming up with a message that says "We can’t find booking options for this itinerary. Try changing your flights to see booking options."
Do a multi-city search on TAP's website and you'll find it! Screenshots in my first post.

Here's an example of how to book a roundtrip.

Find your dates on Google Flights
https://www.google.com/travel/flight...Y9rjWubTVCN4WA

Spoiler
 



Now go to the TAP Air Portugal website and use the multi-city search typing each segment to/from Lisbon (it'll only let you enter flights to or from Portugal) and the proper date to match the flights you found in Google Flights.

On the results page, take a look at the flights in Executive class. Those are business class. If you want, there's a filter button at the top where you can filter out all the Classic flights by checking Executive Only.

Select your Executive class flight and go through the booking process, entering your name, personal details, payment, etc.

TAP's website is pretty easy to use! It's not difficult at all to book these!

try this link to booking.com if you're having trouble with the TAP website.

Thanks for the additional advice! Momondo will deeplink to several OTA's, but in Post #34, just above yours, I tried to provide more details.

Keep in mind a turnaround time of less than 24 hours in the UK is going to be much cheaper than a stay in the UK because of the difference in taxes / fees / APD, if you are using this for a mileage run.

Here's the ignore list - https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/prof...?do=ignorelist - if anybody wants to ignore me or anybody else.

Google flights is also showing links to OTAs including booking.com, gotogate, and kiwi.com. Going directly with the airline is probably the best bet though.

Tried numerous times on TAP until payment page, but failed like 6 times. Eventually booked on Booking (SuperSaver). Not ideal and not ticketed, but it got ticketed!

Another beer and I think I'll be booking these. Thanks for the help. I'll let you know.

Trying to book LHR-SIN via FRA so that I can go on the A380 on TAP's website, however it defaults to economy for FRA-SIN

However if I go to BCN/FCO/MXP instead on the A350 then the Executive option shows up. Anyone else as well?

Slight snag.

Got the message "It was not possible to book the flights you selected. Please restart your flight selection." when clicking BOOK on the TAP website.

Is this happening for anyone else? Could it just be the dates it doesn't like?

FYI im trying to book from LHR 18/8 - from SIN 1/9

Thank you OP!

Just booked SIN-LIS-AMS 24 July. My final destination is actually DUB, so I booked SIN-LIS (SIN-BCN is on SQ) for the 24th, then LIS-AMS on another random date a week later and just won't take that flight. I'll get off at BCN or LIS and book another flight to DUB. It would still be cheaper than any other way.

Does anyone know if SQ will only check bags to BCN if I ask them? Or will they insist on checking all the way to LIS?

Don't wait too long! It might disappear!

Yes, you should be able to, but you'll probably have to use a travel agent or OTA. TAP's website doesn't seem to want to display this as a result.

They will send your bags to LIS, but if your connection is a week later you will get your bag back. The airline won't hold it for a week. That's a liability!

Worked for me and I just tried a few searches now. Maybe try changing your dates?

Haha I don't want them to hold it for a week! I meant will they let me pick it up in BCN, or would they insist on checking it all the way to LIS?
I'd rather pick it up in BCN and book a separate flight to DUB myself, than having to fly to LIS and have the possibility of it getting delayed/lost...
