Since Aeroflot has 737-400s, 767-300s, A310s(I don't know if it still flies them, especially since the crash in Russia) and has plans for getting new 777-200s, which routes are these a/c being used on? I've heard that Aeroflot flies its 767s to US destinations, but that's about all I really know.

I'll be happy if anyone has any answers to my question. If there's any other Western-built aircraft that's also being operated by Aeroflot that I missed, I'd also be glad to know if there's any!

Last summer I saw an Aeroflot B777 in Washington Dulles. I also think they use (used ??) them on flights to London.
A 737-(800??) flies to Zurich I think. Didn't they also get the B737-800 ????

Rgds, B737-700

I can say that all flights to Geneva and Zurich are operated by 737-400s. London is usually a IL-86. They use the 777 on flights to New York and Bangkok.

3 B767-300 on New York, Montreal, London routes
8 A310-300 on Vienna, Rome, Osaka, Miami, Paris routes.
I do not know much about their B737`s but they use it sometimes on SVO-WAW route (normally they fly TU-154).

Saw 767 (reg. VP-BAZ) in Los Angeles on 29 April 2000. Have seen A-310's in Toronto in the past and have heard they are using 767's now to YYZ.

The 737s are used on flights to several Western European cities, including Copenhagen, Stockholm, Frankfurt and others.

Aeroflot consistently uses Western aircraft on the following routes:

Boeing 767-300ER:

Moscow - Montreal
Moscow - Toronto
Moscow - Los Angeles
Moscow - San Francisco
Moscow - New York

Boeing 777-200:

Moscow - New York JFK
Moscow - Hong Kong

Airbus A310-300:

Moscow - Toronto
Moscow - Montreal
Moscow - Miami
Moscow - London (equipment varies with IL86 and TU154)
Moscow - Hong Kong
Moscow - Tokyo
Moscow - Mexico City
Moscow - Bangkok (equipment varies with IL96-300)

Boeing 737-400s service most major European cities.

Aeroflot operates flights with varied aircraft types depending on capacities needed. So it's difficult to say, for example, if the aircraft on SVO-ARL will be a TU134 or a 737-400.

That's about as much as I know offhand.

Thanks for the info, guys! I just remembered - the 767 services weren't exactly all I knew! I just remembered now having taken a picture of an Aeroflot A310 at YUL last year! Damn, how dumb of me. But even then, I wasn't sure how much longer Aeroflot would keep those Airbuses!

After looking at those routes posted, it's not that surprising that Aeroflot would use its Western-built planes to destinations outside Russia. The typical passenger, I'm sure, would probably rather be flying on a Boeing or Airbus instead of an Ilyushin or Tupolev to and from Russia. In short, it's an image improvement on Aeroflot's part. The other reason (probably a better one) is that Western-built aircraft tend to have better range and fuel efficiency. I've once read that an Il-86 would require two stops for fuel from Moscow to Havana or Miami, while a 767-300ER or an A310 could do the same route nonstop.

If anyone knows of any more routes to post that Aeroflot uses its Western aircraft on, they're welcome to put them here!

In April of this year i flew Aeroflot from London to Bangkok via Moscow. Both flights were on a 777 200 and were of average quality. No Russian aircraft fly into London anymore because of noise restrictions its either the 777 or A310 which is also used for Aeroflots flights to Japan.
