All TAP Air Portugal rates include luggage. Depending on the fare type and route, 1-3 pieces are provided. If you need more space, you can buy a TAP Travel Bag at a price of $60 per bag.
Only certain fares include checked bags. If your ticket includes the option to check bags, then they will be available for use during travel. Otherwise, you must transport them in your lap or shoulder bag.
If you intend to bring a large amount of luggage, it's best to book a flight that provides room for extra luggage.
The weight limit for checked bags is 30 kg (66 pounds). If you try to check bags that weigh more than this, then an additional charge will apply.
Only certain routes provide free checked bags. If your ticket does not indicate that checked bags are free, then you should expect to pay for them. However, if you have a confirmed reservation and there's still room left under your initial reservation, then TAP may decide to offer you a refund if you cancel your original reservation and rebook a new one.
In most cases, you'll be able to store your luggage while you're away from your home airport.

Flying on TAP Portugal is a no-frills experience, similar to taking a bus in the skies but without the price decrease. Although this was not one of our favorite flights, it did go better than planned. There were no delays and the flight was comfortable with room for everyone.
The advantage of flying with TAP is that it's one of the only low-cost airlines in Europe so you know what you're going to get. The disadvantage is that there are only two flights per day from Lisbon to Toronto and they are very popular so book your ticket well in advance. Also, the flight takes about nine hours which isn't that long but can be boring after a while so bring something to read or watch Netflix.
There are four terminals at Lisbon Airport but if you arrive late or leave early, don't worry about missing your connection as all terminals are connected by free shuttle buses.
In terms of security, passengers have to go through a metal detector before entering the boarding area. Carry-on bags are allowed but must fit under the seat in front or in the overhead compartments. Please note that liquids, gels, and aerosols are not permitted on board.
There are vending machines in each terminal that sell coffee, snacks, and other drinks but if you want fresh food, there are restaurants inside the airport.

TAP Portugal serves complementary meals on all flights, and the airline strives to present the flavors and tastes of Portugal for all customers to enjoy. Since October 2018, the airline has launched a new lunch service for economy class customers on medium-haul flights lasting up to three hours. The meal is served after the first hour of flight time and includes two courses: soup or salad and a main dish with potatoes as a common side dish. Customers can choose between chicken, pork, fish and vegetarian options for the main course. Desserts are also offered as a choice.
In addition to the standard tapas menu, you can find special dishes on the tasting menu inspired by regions in Portugal. These include dishes from Algarve, Beira Interior, Central Portugal, Lisbon District, Northern Portugal, Porto Region and Trás-os-Montes. There are also seasonal specials available most months of the year.
The meal service is offered free of charge for customers in economy class. Those who want to add wine, beer, or other drinks to their meal have the option of paying a supplement or choosing alternative beverages instead.
For those who prefer to eat when flying Portuguese ports, the airline's chef creates a unique menu with items such as grilled meats, seafood, vegetables, and pasta.
