Having never been on Russian metal I am hoping to have a ride on one soon, can anyone enlighten me to what routes they are deployed on, WAW and IST come to mind.

Yes, SU flies the 154 to IST. I saw one when I was there nearly two months ago. The TU-154 painted in Aeroflot's latest color scheme looked all new and sparkling, it looked like it had been delivered not long ago. I loved looking at it taking off and climbing with its smoky powerful Soloviev engines.

HAM also sees the TU-154, and I believe so does DUS as well every now and then.

As for the TU-134, I doubt it flies internationally outside of CIS countries due to it possibly being banned in Europe because of noise regulations.

Are there many Russian-made aircrafts flying to HKG?

I actually flew on Aeroflot Tu154 from IST to SVO a few months ago. It was a great experience. The plane was clean and quite nice inside. There were some things not up to the standards of western aircraft like the lavatories in particular, but overall it was a good flight and I wrote a trip report about it:

Good luck. They are a lot of fun since they are quite different than the boring Airbus and Boeing planes that you see every day. But they are quickly fading away. They are the workhorses still on domestic Russian routes, but will soon be gone from western skies.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

The SVO-THR-SVO is also a Tu-154M.

Aeroflot flies the TU 154 twice daily to Kiev, Ukraine. I've never been on one so I am hoping to hop on this beautiful bird at some time in the near future.

Yes, Aeroflot flies five weekly flights from SVO to BCN.

Adding this flights to BCN, SU flies with TU5 equipment...

SVO - BVA = one weekly flight.
SVO - OSL = five flights a week.
SVO - WAW = nine flights a week.
SVO - PRG = daily flight.
SVO - BUD = daily flight.
SVO - SOF = five flights a week
SVO - ATH = four flights a week
SVO - FCO = ten flights a week.
SVO - VCE = twice a week.
SVO - BEG = daily flight.
SVO - ZAG = three flights a week.
SVO - FRU = ten flights a week.

(...)

Gerard

It depends where you live. The flight Belgrade Moscow can be got for about 210euros return. I am planning to take it as soon as i get some time. Or you could visit moscow and then fly domestically? or even visit Iran? Many 154s fly there.

I am wondering If there really is a difference between flying in a MD80, and flying in a TU154 ? I mean, what really matters is the airline's cabin management, isn't it? The seat's pitch and all that.

Of course, If you look at the stats, Russian aircraft do crash more regularly than western ones, but that is always linked to maintenance problems I think, and it has nothing to do with comfort !

I have flown to DME as crew and the immigration formalities are awful, have a stamp in the passport, entry and exit-no visa. Should i fly into SVO on a staff ticket and have a confirmed reservation on SU service, do i have to clear Immigration, whats the best way to do it?

Well, Aeroflot has a very good safety record, but the same can't be said about other Russian airlines.
