TAP manages to make the Air Portugal even more miserable

Manchester Lisbon

* one solitary agent checking in a plane-load of passengers

* of course it's an hour late: it's TAP

* new low, they're shutting down contract lounges. So with no STAR lounge at MAN, BHX and many other airports, there's nowhere to wait out the delay

So that's no comfort TP's business-class passengers on their way to GRU.

just the legendary on board service to look forwatd to....

TAP also cancelled the VCE Venice lounge contract but it’s a Priority Pass lounge and kids are free so no sweat! Alas the alcohol selection is mediocre (only beer, red wine and sparkling) but food was ok

I was going to whine about the 3 agents who didn't show up until 2 hours before checkin (only 1 for biz class) but I gather it's worse elsewhere...

Did you really want access to the Aspire lounge at MAN?

In truth, I've got a few gripes with the Aspire set up, but I can usually find a quiet corner for a coffee.. and there are views of the runay and apron, always a plus for me.

If you look around the zoo that is T2 in the holiday season, even the Aspire lounge can seem like a haven of tranquility ...
