The flight are very cheap. 2. The traveling time...

There is a lot of legroom in Economy, Which was nice! TVs worked on 3 of our 4 flights. Headphones handed out on 3/4 flights. Food was “airline food” not great, but not bad: edible. Female flight attendants were grumpy and uninterested on all flights and is a bad representation of Angola and Angolan culture (a smile would go a...

The TAAG Flight Entertainment Program was once again broken. It happens all the time! Not to mention that their movies are the same over three years!!! I'm a regular traveler and I'm seriously considering stop flying on TAAG.

I booked a flight on TAAG and had to cancel it. The ticket I booked is eligible for a refund. I've contacted TAAG via email and through their site but no reply. Doubt I'll ever see that refund.

I didn't expect too much from TAAG but what I got was good service on 2 comfortable flights. Staff were friendly and treated you a bit more like a friend than a customer which was refreshing. Would certainly fly with them again.

We had flights Johannesburg-Luanda-Lisbon and Porto-Luanda-Johannesburg. Checkin was easy and without problems. All flights departed and arrived on time or even early. The amount of legroom was amazing and this made the flights very comfortable. Cabin crew were capable of basic English and helpful enough. Food was not great, but at least edible. Beverages included beer and wine. Just bargain...

TAAG doesn’t really have a partnership with anyone other than the Portugal airline TAP. This means I wasn’t able to check a bag or even check-in for the complete flight from Houston to Luanda. That being said, the airline exceeded my expectations. There is a first class, separate business and economy. The amount of room per passenger in business was...

The Johannesburg to Luanda, Angola sector was not a pleasant one as the entertainment system on the plane was totally disabled and there was no onboard music. Transit in the Angolan airport was not any better. Flight from Luanda to Lisbon was much better. The return journey from Lisbon to Johannesburg via Luanda was more pleasant. However, the transit process...
