Hello everyone and this time I'm back with another trip report, but it's an old trip report stored within my archives. This trip report covers an Aeroflot (SU), codeshared and operated by Aurora (HZ) flight from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk to Seoul Incheon

Conclusion

I hope you enjoyed my Trip Report! Aurora is a relatively young airline, which formed at the end of 2013. Its current fleet consists of A319s and Dash 8s. The 737 which I flew on has been retired from the fleet. I'll be back with more later in the future
