The Illyushin Il-96M is the newest Russian wide-body pax jet. This version is a stretch version of the Il-96-300 is has western avionics from Honeywell and 4 PW2337 turbofans engines (same as the 757's and C-17s). What airlines have so far order the Illyushin Il-96M?

I don't know but one thing that is killing this aircraft if the marketplace is the length of time that it has taked for it to get into production. I think it has been something like ten years since they first displayed it at the paris air show. It isn't a bad airplane and was one of the first that they announce would b ebuilt to western certification.

if it looks like a 757 with winglets, I believe that Cairo Air or Air Cairo ordered two of them.

The Illyushin Il-96M is a wide-body for those who don't know.

In order to get rid of any confusion flying about "recent" Russian planes, probably the simplest way of going about it is to think of them as:

Tu-204 = Boeing-757

IL-96 = Airbus A340 or IL-86 (plus winglets)

Tu-334 = Fokker-100 or MD-80

Russian "relatives" of Western models are more likely to first appear in Aeroflot colours. So, for example, if you spot a "baby" that in some way resembles A340, but in Aeroflot colours, then it's definitely an IL-96 (Aeroflot don't fly A340s, yet) :).

Well, that was a rather "dull" explanation but handy :). Even a starting or non- aircraft spotter should be able to distinguish the models.

Good weather to you...

The Il-96 is ordered by:

Aeroflot for starters, and I believe TransAero and Volga Dnepr (IL-96T freighter) ordered some. I'm not sure if they are real orders or options.
We'll see... I know Aeroflot is not happy with the Il96T. The leased DC-10 they use out-performs the Il96 big time!!

This is one of the big problems with aircraft over there. It is awfuly hard to sell a plane to a customer when he knows that only the prototype is flying and that it took over 10 years on the last aircraft to go from a prototype to production.

Three more to add to the list:

Ilyushin 62 = Vickers VC-10
Tupolev 154 = Boeing 727
Tupolev 144 = Concorde
