TAP Portugal, SAA, or Air Angola?

Hi,

I have to fly from GVA to Luanda this summer. The only carriers seem to be the above and BA, which does not go on the days I need.

I've never been on TAP Portugal. Is the C product any good? Is it worth 6 extra hours and a connection in JNB to fly the SAA? Has anyone ever flown Air Angola, I get shudders just thinking about it ...

Tragically, none of these work with AA or UAL for accrual

Thanks,
Jer

I flew TAP to Barcelona from JFK, with a stopover in Lisbon. This was in coach class...It was fairly cramped on way there but weay back was a DISASTER. Planes are old and "maintanence" caused us on the way back to be stuck overnight in Lisbon and awoken at 4 am for the TAP shuttle bus to next days flight that left at 11 AM! Nice 7 hr wait. Avoid TAP like the plague!
