Prologue


Today I will write about a really short but handy flight from Krasnodar to Sochi. Nowadays the flight is operated by UTair, but around 3 years ago only Aeroflot did this flight, and even earlier, before 2012 Kuban airlines were flying it with YAK-42. This flight goes to Sochi and back multiple times every day, and usually it is operated by ATR-72, but if there is a big event taking place at Sochi, they fly it with a 737-800.

Before the flight


Here is the KRR appron:

The boarding for business class passengers is done with buses like these:

Boarding to this aircraft is only available through the back of the plane, and that's why business class cabin is the back of the plane:

That's how the row looks: (by the way UTair also puts one passenger to two seats, just like Austrian)

That's what they have in the seat pocket:

Here is the legroom: quite good, considering the fact that the plane is small:

For take off and landing they give you a candy, just like about 10 years ago. Good old traditions)
