I booked TPs Plus fare mainly for the better seats,better pitch,adjustable back & headrest,from CMN to OTP and ended up getting K class for In and T class for Outbound which earned
me 50% in K and 10% in T with M&S.

No possibility to check prior booking.Expedia and others only show the booking class for the cheapest fare,which was the same in this case.

I think the decision not to show the booking classes ''before '' you have paid is deliberate.If you want to earn miles and be on the safe side,you need to book TP Business class.

Conclusion : TP Plus seems to be good if you earn with their own program because it guaranties 100% Status Miles.

I booked now a ticket in classic and have booking class O (O48CLC0B fare rule). I want to credit it to M+B, hope will get at least 50% miles...
update: Aegean sees it as O class = 0 miles...

I thought TAP credited to A3 according to ticket group (basic, classic, plus) now. Having previously had H fares in Classic only receive 50% miles, I now had classic in E but received a big fat zero. This was for MUC-LIS.

So is TAP now crediting nothing if the booking class not included in the A3 table, and downgrading the booking class according to fare group if it would earn? That would be reason for me not to step on a TAP aircraft again.

TP is shady in everything they do. It is the only *A airline I completely refuse to fly.

TP are not the only members of *A that act shady. It's a shame, the alliance is one in name only. I refuse to research every flight I book for hours in advance to check which booking class the operating carrier will assign, or if I even get anything credited to my FFP of choice, if there are silly lounge access exception rules that prevent me using my *G privileges, or if I'm likely to be turfed out of my exit row seat on the whim of some gate agent preferring the looks of the HON. When alliance member airlines clearly favour their own members, hide or withhold benefits from other airlines elites or just generally obfuscate things then then I ask myself why they still bother to be in an alliance.

My request for missing miles came back as expected with the response from A3 that the booked class does not qualify for credit.
My request to credit 100% miles for my H class ticket (Basic) came back with the response that TAP now awards miles based on fare family and Basic only gives 50% and "correctly" credited as P.
So, TP is screwing us. Your booking class must now be high enough to credit AND your fare family booked must correspond. So, terms and conditions from A3 and TP must BOTH be fulfilled. This is BS and I shall no longer be booking these flights.
