Aeroflot has doubled the frequencies on Moscow-New York-Washington and on Moscow-New York, thus making double-daily service into Moscow from JFK and vice versa. Flight 316 and 318 are the numbers going JFK-Moscow. A310s are serving these markets, and they are not too comfortable for these lengths. Much rather take a 767..

Some Days, on Flight Status I have seen both 316 and 318 go across the pond.
Why do they have A310s on these routes, that are constantly full from Washington. Coach a lot of times is overbooked. Almost ALWAYS as a rule, because they book coach seats by the capactiy on the 763s and a few pax get booked into the biz. A 777 would be much more feasible, and more attractive from a customer perspective.

The A310-300 can make it across the Atlantic from New York to Moscow with no real problems. Pan Am used to operate one on the JFK-SVO route although often the flight was operated with a 747-100. Delta flies the 767-300ER daily from JFK.
Aeroflot DOES have a few 777's so why not use them on this premier route?
