This thread is to discuss the interesting and rarely discussed topic of U.S. manufactured aircraft operated by Portuguese carriers historically and currently.
Unknown to many, TAP Air Portugal who currently operates an all Airbus fleet once operated a mostly American aircraft fleet featuring some of the greatest classic airliners ever built: Boeing 707, 727, 737-200, 747-200 (TAP classic livery featured in IF!), and the Lockheed L-1011 Tristar. The French built Caravelle, another great airliner was also operated by TAP.
Euro Atlantic Airways (based in Lisbon) still operates a mostly Boeing fleet on some very interesting routes. These aircraft include the Boeing 737, 757, 767, and 777.
Please feel free to discuss these topics. Discussion about TAP, SATA, Euro Atlantic Airways and other Portuguese carriers is also fair game.
I know I plan to fly some routes flown by TAP, SATA and Euro Atlantic Airways once Global hits the block. Look forward to some good discussions.Cheers!
