Exclamation Lisbon / LIS and other TAP lounge status? (Covid - 2020-2021)

Flying to BCN through YYZ in executive in about 2 weeks. Have a 6 hour layover in LIS. Is the lounge there open?
I called TAP and one person said the lounge us open but I have to reserve a spot in advance (which I tried online but didn't see anywhere how to do it), and another person said the lounge is closed. And I have to say, I spent a lot of 25-30 mins on the phone trying to find this answer, and most of the time after 25 minutes of being put on hold it would just hang up. Very disappointed in TAP so far (my first time).

I also read a lot of negative reviews about TAP. What do you guys think?

Any idea when the lounge will open in LIS (and OPO)? Heading over in mid September.

I asked staff at premium check in and they replied "I have no information" with they eyes down, so I would not expect anytime soon.

Is the Orly lounge open?

I am planning to fly LIS-ORY round trip in late October.
Is the Orly lounge open? If not how about places for food and drink (aka wine/beer)? TAP uses Terminal 3 FWIW.
I have been trying to find out, but no reponses - yet.
TIA

Flying on Sep 23rd and have little hope for the lounge to be open. Emailed TAP few days ago asking and they said all their lounges are closed.

TAP Lounge still closed today but the ANA Lounge is now open, for those that have Priority Pass.

Orly 3 is non-schengen only, so TP does not operate from there.

TP currently operates from Orly 2 (https://www.parisaeroport.fr/en/pass...ing-from-paris)
I flew ORY-LIS the week after the lockdowns started when everything was operating from Orly 3/4, rather than Orly 1, as was the case 10 days prior.

You may have to go through passport control on arrival and then access the departure lounge (no departure passport control, selective arrival passport control even from Schengen countries)
At Orly 4, no lounges were open, but there were a couple of takeaway places that remained open. No restaurants were open at the time.

If I recall correctly, ORY-2 has a PPass lounge, though ORY's airport-run lounges are nothing to write home about with almost no food and ok drinks. Not sure if that particular lounge is open.

Thank you Palal, for sharing your experience. As my flights are flying in on Oct 24th, and out on the 29th, a LOT of "things" can happen during the next 4 or 5 weeks.
