I was just wondering what was going on with this airlines. I remember in the 70-80's, and maybe even in the start of the 90's they had this route: CPH-Schönenfeld (old DDR)-Athen-Damascus on a B 727. Many backpackers, hopping in the Greece islands took that plane, because of lowe fares to Athen. Have they any schedules to Europe today?, I am sure they have non to the US?

Hey Copenhagen,

as I do not live in Europe, I am not quite sure of all their European destinations. I do know, however, that they serve LHR three times per week. Flight RB411 arrives at 19:00 using one of their two Boeing 747SP-94s (YK-AHA and YK-AHB). The second arrives on Wednesday at 19:05 as Flight RB413. This flight uses one of their 6 A320-232s (YK-AKA; AKB; AKC; AKD; AKE and AKF). The last flight of the week arrives on Saturdays at 14:50 as flight RB409. This flight uses the 747SP again.

I'm sure they have many other European destinations, but this was the only one I knew offhand. Hope this helps!  Smile

Never tell your girlfriend about all the 'action' you're getting at the airport - only photogs understand that.

thanks for the link, and the information, I should have made some search, it just came into my mind, as well as when i flew on Interflug at the same time. We were a group flying CPH(jet)-Scönenfeld(turbopropel)-Leningrad on Interflug and on the return Moskow-Scönenfeld-CPH on Interflug and Berling-CPH on Tarom. In fact Tarom impresseded me as I remember. On our way to Leningrad the flight from Copenhagen could not depart because of fog in Berlin, we had to wait 2 hours before departing, but the Interflug was waiting in Berlin for us 12 people. Well just coming into my mind and it is quite funny thinking about it.
Oh, well maybe I should have made another topic  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

You can say that again. Every flights seems have a different arrival/departure time. Even destinations with daily services have really weird schedules.

The airline itself really needs alot of investment. The service and attention given by the crew is excellent and the seats are comfortable. As for entertainment and all the extra stuff (offered as norm by other airline) is non-existent.

Hopefully it'll get better in the future.

The 2 mistakes I saw:
1st: they have a picture of a TU 154 and explaining technology of 727
2nd: on their schedule on the left hand side they have the 747SP in old colour scheme.

BTW does anyone have any pics/links to CABIN VIEWS of Syrian Air 74S or 727's. I tried the database and other search engines, but no luck!

And the interieur of the 320 is not interesting, 744?

Syrian Air doesn't allow taking pictures inside their planes (except of commercial photographs)

StefanDotDe,

It's very simple: religious reasons and private sphere.
For Muslims it's forbidden to take pictures of people. A Muslim should explain it here, I don't know 100 % why.
2nd reason is private sphere. If you take a pic from a plane inside with other passengers, another person may see them travelling with a person they shouldn't travel with  Smile/happy/getting dizzy or they dont want that other people know they are travelling to a special destionation. So that's private sphere.

Really? That's news to me. In Islam your not allowed to have statues but pictures are okay as long as the pictures don't have anything 'wrong'.

Good question, why not not allowed to take any pictures???

In Egypt, back in 1991, when I was leaving there and travelling with Egyptair, I remember that it was strictly forbidden to take any pictures at the airport or onboard planes.

Is it still the same???

Nothing to do with Islam I can assure you, however sculpting, painting and drawing living forms are forbidden(heard the same for Christianity) according to some, extremeists include photography in that category as well, ofcourse it was non existant in those days.
