Madeira is very nice, but make sure you get a flight on a big plane direct from the UK. Don’t be tempted to save a few quid by flying to Lisbon then getting a connecting flight with TAP.

TAP runs smaller planes on that route, and with pilots who don’t know how to land in strong winds, and Madeira is very prone to them. And the staff at Lisbon airport are absolutely clueless; they hide behind “we don’t work for TAP, so we don’t know”… in fact, they work for Groundforce, which is a subsidiary of TAP. But they still claim that TAP gives them no information. Which may be true, and as people they are nice enough, but as to use the word “organisation” to describe either TAP or Groundfarce would be overly charitable.
