Voice of Travelers to Luanda

Pleasantly surprised with TAAG airline

I was very pleased flying with TAAG from cape town to Lisbon through Luanda. The plane was very clean; the food was tasty and the cabin crew was professional and friendly. However, Luanda Airport needs some improvement. The cost of the flight was good value for money. The plane was exceptionally clean, comfortable leg room and the service was outstanding. I would fly again with TAAG airline again.

Service was professional and pleasant

I had a great experience flying with Air France flight from Dubai to Luanda. The economy class seating was very comfortable. The services offered by the cabin crew was astounding and professional. They had plenty of time to attend to us. The lie flat seat was very comfortable with a small pillow and nice duvet. The A380 plane was very clean, quiet and comfortable. The flight had some turbulence but arrived on time. I recommend them to any one for future flights.
