Some years since I flew this route with TAP, BA, Air France and Iberia having offered better fares. Boarding at Lisbon was third world chaotic. The aircraft interior showed its age and was in need of serious refurbishment. The footrest was broken and the cover lying on the floor when I boarded, this an aircraft leaving its home operating and maintenance base. The seat cushion was non existent and I used the blanket as a cushion! In flight entertainment was of three decades ago and I doubt that the safety information that it was used for would satisfy today's legal requirements. However, the flight kept good time. The food was probably better than that on other airlines I have used. I would have appreciated the offer of a drink during the long night flight. Other airlines manage this much better. Altogether a forgetable experience. I hope that the flight back on a 332 is a better experience!
