Flying on TAP's new A330neo - the backstage

Last June I had the chance to fly on the very first production Airbus A330neo, that is about to be delivered to TAP Air Portugal.

This summer this aircraft has been doing a World tour, part testing and also part commercial demo for would be customers.

I wrote an extensive report about that flight, from Toulouse to Lisbon, already in TAP livery, that kicked off this last round of testing before the aircraft is officially delivered to the Portuguese airline.

 As you may have guessed, this is NOT the A330neo (which is a bit wider!) but TAP's management team on the E190 that flew us to Toulouse to pick up the A330neo

During the trip I could take lots of pictures and video that, for practical reasons, could not be included in my article for TPG. So, I thought it could be a good idea to do another post here gathering some of the behind-the-scenes material from the A330neo flight.
