TAP--long-haul business seat questions

Hello all:

I haven't flown TAP at all but saw a pretty sweet deal for trans-atlantic flights to NE USA.

https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/prem...-business.html

I have an upcoming trip to GOT. Would like to utilize this deal to return to the USA.

Yet, reviews on TAP business seats are very rare. Previously, I saw that LIS-JFK was served with airplanes with NON-flat beds (flat beds were only available on ex-Azul A330 flights to BOS). Did TAP change this completely to fully-flat beds on ALL LIS-JFK flights now?

Has anybody reported that TAP does the dirty trick that United uses with their real Polaris aircrafts--swapping them with older planes all the time on the routes supposedly served by converted birds? I know that last-minute equipment swaps sometimes happen due to unexpected circumstances. However, UA does this constantly as part of their cheap, bait-and-switch strategy.

If you actually did a quick search "TAP business" you'd find this https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/othe...s-seating.html that actually deals in experiences and facts.
There are no "dirty tricks" [moderator edit]

They use all flat beds on this route, but as you know...
