TAP to BSB - extra delayed ? Low priority destination?

Does anyone know if BSB is a low priority destination for TAP?
Flying them soon and worried about my connection as they seem to be over 2 hours late every other day
Any special issues with that destination?
I know they fly A333 (ex-SQ) but should that pose a significant issue?
Info appreciated as Im worried about my LIS connection (in either direction) with such consistantly late Aircraft

I can't answer for BSB, but just flew LHR-LIS and back, and both flights were over 2 hours late. Both had some minor issues, but the overwhelming feeling was of general incompetence adding to the delays.

Well I just did the trip.
And one way the connection worked - on the return however we missed it and TAP wanted to rebook us on a flight 13 hours later. We twisted their arm and got home with SK and 'only 4 hours delay'
Absolutely NO groudsupport at LIS - the transfer centre is a complete joke - enormous lines from all the other delayed flights and ONE employee manning the desk. And we were in C.
Never never never TAP again.
