I hate TAP

Talk about anything but keep it polite and reasonably clean.

I hate TAP

Post by jdaw1 » 14:45 Sat 28 Apr 2018

Trying to buy a flight. Flight selected. Where is the “Buy it now” button?

Where is the “TAP is useless and its board should resign” button?

Where is the “Mediterranean Eurozone will go bust if Germany doesn’t pay all its bills” button?

(I’ve asked my missus to help. Maybe it’s obvious and I’m being a retard. Maybe TAP’s website designer is a retard. Both not impossible.)

Many web pages have a line near the bottom, below which are navigational links. If looking at a long list, and making selections with buttons within this list, this navigational zone might be half-a-dozen screenfuls beneath where the selection is being made.

TAP has put the ‘buy it now you retard’ button in this zone, rather than anywhere near the area in which buttons are being pushed to make choices.

Why? Presumably common-garden lesser-spotted incompetence.

Me too

I sit in Porto airport after my TAP 12:30 flight was cancelled, and after having waited two hours in line for a rescheduling. They offered me a 9:30 pm flight from Porto to Lisbon or a four hour bus ride to Lisbon airport. I was able to negotiate a spot on a 6:30 pm flight, which has been delayed by another hour. My 23 hour layover in Lisbon is rapidly looking like a brief nap followed by a cup of coffee - if I even get there at all. By the time it is all done, it will be more than 10 hours waiting in the airport here.

The flight coming in was delayed badly as well, with no information.

The Quinta de la Rosa was lovely - as is Porto - but I will never again use TAP; they made me never want to visit again.

Thus, I think that I can also say, "I hate TAP".
