    Hey !
    Thanks a lot for sharing this retro flight report.
    I really like the SU's Livery.
    It was a good flight.
    Thanks for the bonus !

    Good FR. Well done. The more exotic the more interesting. Great bonus pictures too !

    Thank you for sharing this interesting report.

    SU's livery reminds me so much of the old AM livery.

    Was that a special livery SU with the snowflakes instead of the Russian flag on the tail? (you had zoomed in on a bunch of SU tails in the picture I'm referring to)

    The westernization of the SU fleet looks complete based on your spotting. Their cabins, however, do not look so appealing with those blue seats.

    Speaking of the cabin. Were you on an A320? Why were there lavatories mid-cabin? Looks more like an A321.

    I love the difference between SVO and LED, one is new and modern and the other is straight out of the communist era.

    Russia is a place I have an interest in visiting, but political volatility in that region make me think it's better to wait.

      Thank you NG086, actually I don't remember if it was A320 or 21 as it was awhile back and I did not use to take that much detailed pictures back then. Yes, you are so right about the difference between SVO and LED, and for sure it's nice that SU has been able to modernize their fleet.

      As for the plane with the snow flake livery I think it was called Nordavia airlines, the livery looks very similar to SU though.

    Thank you for sharing another beautiful report.

    The SU crew uniform is quite colorful. I guess that is good because you can't miss them in case of an emergency. Gosh, I feel that I need to wear sunglasses when looking at them.

    Nice bonus of Moscow. Correct me if I am wrong but it seems that on one of the pics two guys are holding hands. I know that in Russia it is customary for men to kiss on the mouth but is holding hand also a common practice?

      Thanks jetsetpanda, yes the crew uniform colour is indeed very unique and I really liked it. ,

      As for those menI don't think they are holding hands in that pic as I did not see any men holding hands, about kissing that's very interesting to know, I had no idea about that one :)

      Then you are a more talented photographer than I expected. ;)

      For all the reputation that the French get in matters that relate to the heart and that condition called love, it seems that the Russians are more passionate when it comes to kissing.

      Perhaps you might find this article enlightening about this Russian custom.

      Very cool, thanks for sharing actually in Iran and the whole middle east region men friends or family members kiss each other on cheeks too when they see each other. That's very cool IMO.

    Thanks for sharing this new retro report! Although, not that retro...just a few years old. I don't know why, but despite your nice report, I still have absolutely no desire to fly Aeroflot. It just doesn't seem appealing to me. The Seats do look comfortable, however. Although I'm not a fan of that shade of blue. Great aerial pics and bonus pics as usual!
