Routes for TAP's new A330-900 Neo

Does anyone know which routes this aircraft, or the new Recaro seats, will be operating? Any chance LIS-BOS by June?

The A330-900s will only arrive in the first quarter of 2018.

Thank you. The new seats though, appear to be arriving sooner as they have clearly already retrofitted at least one plane. Any idea which routes those seats will live on?

Those are not the new Recaro 6710... but Thompson vantage: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/other...s-seating.html

Apart from directing you to the thread oliver2002 mentioned, I'd add that it would be unlikely that LIS-BOS would be among the first to be operated with the new A339s.

Thank you, new thread appears to have the answer. LIS-BOS, unlikely to be among first to get that configuration. If the seats being put on this plane in the video at 1:20 are the Thompson Vantage, then which seats are these?

... and a few months later, the first A330neo came out of FAL in TLS:

Any update on the route that these would be used on? One comment mentions that BOS is an unlikely route. Have a BOS-LIS-Euope-LIS-BOS route in mid April, wondering if it's a new 330-neo or still the Azul planes. Just economy though...
