TAAG: JNB-MVD (Uruguay) $250 ow / $600 rt in Business

Pretty wide open but hard to find on ita or Google flights

Can't say much about the airline. Only review I found was one lucky did of their new first class that did not paint a pretty picture, but maybe others can shine a light

Sample dates :

Eta: since a few people are asking, doesn't appear to earn miles anywhere: https://www.wheretocredit.com/taag-angola-airlines/j

Great find, love those obscure niche deals!

Business on their 773 looks.. fine.

The airline sucks. Worse than Aeroflot during soviet times. Surly flight attendants, bad airport in LAD and horrible soft product.

They'll get you there, so take them if you need to get there, but don't expect great service.

Which date for CPT-MVD? Can't find it right now.
Edit: nevermind, thanks!
Example date is 14-10.

Also bookable in First CPT-GRU for around 1700 USD r/t.

First Class in their 777-300 is very nice, at least from the hardware side. And from CPT, you should have 773 all the way to LAD and GRU

EDIT: Just realised that not all of their 773 are equipped with the new seats, so I would definitely stick with Business Class

Definitely lots of bad reviews of TAAG but it's an amazing deal in business. Food seems to be premium economy at best and layover in Luanda apparently isn't pleasant but for frequent flyers, great experience! Seat quite nice, just risk of having on IFE working. Seems to be quite common.

Does anyone know if it works to other cities? Tried EZE, SCL, GRU, GIG etc. but I'm not getting anything.
