The operator cannot be Nigeria Airways, since this carrier was liquidated by its Government in August 2004 and no longer exists.
Perhaps, the aircraft belongs to the Nigerian Presidential Fleet, which does operate the Gulfstream 5.

I'll bet that was a fun visit, for both Olusegun and Bush. Let's see, The UN wants Taylor, the US wants oil, what does Nigeria want?

How about an invitation to the Texas ranch?

Here's a list of what Obasanjo wants:

- Debt pardon from the Paris Club. (Nigeria spends on debt servicing an amount equal to 20 times its yearly health and education budget)

- Reversal of US DOT decision to ban Virgin Nigeria from operating into the US.

- Return to Nigerian government coffers of embezzeled funds in US accounts dating back from the corrupt Abacha administration (in the 1990s).

Who cares, Most European carriers operate to Nigeria and provide convenient connections to Nigerian passengers travelling to the US from their Euro hubs.

Why should anyone travel CO, UA, DL AA or any other US carrier for that matter?



Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

Hmm..did you think of the VERY high fares charged by European carriers? A direct route to Nigeria from the US will bring prices down, no doubt about that.

I'm note sure whether your post is meant to ridicule American carriers. Are service levels that bad on these airlines as compared to other European or African carriers?
