Experts of the Aviation Security Committee of the European Union concluded inspections in Angola last week to decide if TAAG made enough improvement to be removed from the blacklist. Some progress seem to have been made, but when will the EU decide?

Are all TAAG's B777's operated by EuroAtlantic right now?

One TAAG 777 is being leased by Boeing and GE to test various GE90 engine improvements. There was an article on this in the January 28 issue of Aviation Week & Space Technology

Its sad TAAG has these beautiful 777 and they can't fly them to Portugal. TAAG along with Ethiopian and Kenya Airways are among the brighter stars of African Aviation.

According to their website, outside Africa they serve LIS, CDG, GIG, PEK and LHR (operated by BA).



Please insert a "smart" joke here.

I wouldn't put TAAG in the same category as those two. The fact that they are banned should say something. I wouldn't call an airline that is deemed "unsafe", a bright star, but they're also a very corrupt and mismanaged company.

Is this nonstop with the B777-200ERs?

What is the configuration?

That finished at the end of January. The aircraft (D2-TEF) has been parked at BFI since, at TAAGs request.
