Hi,

Just wondering how SU's routes were doing out of North America. Specifically LAX. Do these flights generally go out full and have high yeilds? Thanks for any info.

I know it's difficult trying to book w/ Aeroflot. I wanted to go LAX to Vladivostok last year and nobody could give me any prices or take reservations. I had to go to the ticket conter and take my chances. Plans changed and I did not have to go.

They may have things improved by now, but I avoid them at all costs.

You can book tickets to Vladivostok on most any online travel site......Aeroflot flies there via Moscow, so would not be a good choice unless you need Aeroflot FF miles.....

I have to guess their doing well. JFK is pretty much consistently packed, but empty some days. Their labor costs are a whole lot lower than US airlines, as they have to pay FAs and pilots much less in accordance with Russian standards.

So, if their labor costs are lower, are they also cheaper than other airlines? I would love to try NYC-MOW-OSL, instead of the ususal MSP-AMS-OSL.


911, where is your emergency?

Ironically they are often not cheaper. They are only as cheap as they can get away with in comparison to other airlines. However, sometimes you can get a better deal by going to their office or calling one of their offices in the US directly. They also sometimes have deals with specific travel agencies that specialize in Russia.....

I don't have access to specific info on loads etc. but I would say good at least for YYZ. Rumour has it that SU is planning on going daily into YYZ.

Cheers,
Kaz

They are all right man. Look at them, new lookm airbuses and /r Boeings. They are pretty good in the game. And they still pay comm to travel agents.


cheers,

I believe that Aeroflot flies into SEA as well. Not sure where to in Russia, but believe it's somewhere on the Russian east-coast, quite possibly Vladivostok, and then on to SVO.

Aeroflot does fly 777's as well.

Non-stop to Moscow. They no longer serve Seattle from points in Eastern Russia.

At the moment they only fly to SVO/JFK, IAD, LAX and SEA. They recently dropped SFO, I guess the load was not very profitable. They JFK load is pretty full as you can almost never find a tickets less then $600-$650 R/T. IAD and LAX can be pretty full too but not sure about their SEA. Mostly on these routes they are using new 767s they just got.

Not too good. Loads over the last 12 months have dropped on Moscow-US flights by a whopping 19%, whereas over the last 6 months, SU loads on the overall networks are up by 20% over the previous year. No second guesses needed to know why this is (can you say TSA?)

Actually, the 767s are NOT recent. They've had them since like 1999/2000. The only new 767 that I know of is VP-BDI and perhaps another 767. VP-BAX, Y, Z, and perhaps some other VP-BA. that I have omitted are not new.
