There are no lounges in terminal 2, which is the low-cost terminal. In terminal 1, there are currently only two lounges: TP's and ANA's. You should be able to use TP's, which is the best of the two.

UA (and all other non-LCCs) operate from Terminal 1. Terminal 1 has two areas: Schengen and non-Schengen. All the lounges are in the Schengen area. There is no TK lounge.
There are two lounges: ANA and TP. TP is the better of the two and you if you have *G you can get into the TP lounge. UA C should get you into both the TP and the ANA lounge.

Ill be flying SID-LIS-IAD on TAP as a *G. I understand there is no lounge in the international terminal where Id have my 5 hour layover.

Will I be allowed to enter the Schengen area of the airport to use the lounge there, or is a Schengen boarding pass required? My passport doesnt require a Schengen visa.

If you can enter Schengen (passport), you can use the lounge. You don't need a "shengen boarding pass" for that. You could be entering Schengen to go on a trip in LIS during your layover and then have a flight from the non-shengen area and that would be okay as well... Just say you want to go to the lounge and you should have no problem whatsoever.

I'll be flying SFO-LIS-FCO in J with a 3-hr layover at LIS. I understand the TP lounge has showers. How many are there, and is there usually a wait? (My layover is between 11:30 and 14:40.)

Email received from TP:

​​​​​​​TAP Premium Lounge at Lisbon Airport will be temporarily closed for improvements, with more spaces and a new Food & Beverage service experience, between the 3rd of November and the 17th of December 2022.

To minimize this inconvenience, TAP is pleased to offer you a voucher which can be used in several restaurants at the Lisbon Airport for drinks and snacks. This voucher will be available at check-in counters in the "Premium Area" or at the entrance of the lounge.

Thank you for your understanding and we wish you a very pleasant journey.

I was at LIS yesterday and can confirm that the F&B voucher (for the closed TP Premier lounge) is only worth 10 euros. I used it for 6 little macarons to go at the Hdiard food kiosk.

I visited the ANA lounge (Priority Card), and it was crowded (08-09h) with limited selection of poor quality snacks.

Does the TP LIS lounge have showers open? I've seen mixed messages (including contrasting Google reviews from several similar times past year, where one person is angry bc the showers are closed and the next is thrilled with the lounge bc they could take a nice shower)

I stopped into the TAP Lounge on 12/29 in the morning.





I was pretty disappointed with the food. when I was there for breakfast in October, 2021 there was a buffet with bacon, eggs and egg custard pastries. This time there was just cold cuts, cheese, instant waffles and breads.

When I flew to CMN last week it took about 5 minutes to walk to passport control then about 20 minutes in line at passport control and then 5 minutes to walk to my gate.

No lounge in FNC, but when I was there (late December) I was proactively offered a EUR 10 voucher for use at Cockpit bar only.
