Transaero Airlines wants the Russian government to lift duties on imported aircraft in order to spur fleet renewal. DG Olga Pleshakova said in Toulouse that the A330, A340 and A350 "perfectly suit Transaero's development strategy in the field of servicing long-haul routes from Moscow and St. Petersburg airports." It currently flies to Canada, the Caribbean and Southeast Asia and intends to expand its network to the US, Brazil and Australia.

Transaero has talked quite a bit in the past about various types, but I think that more and more they bring in a consistent philosophy. Might indeed be an interesting potential for both Airbus and Boeing.

Quoting Flying-Tiger (Thread starter):
Might indeed be an interesting potential for both Airbus and Boeing

There was a report that Boeing was talking to several other Russian carriers other than SU for "up to 17 787s" Transaero were mentioned as a candidate. Could this indicate that a full scale RFP is in play? Given restrictions on the import of foreign airframes is it possible that these would be leased? Irresptective as to which models they choose.

This adds more credence to the assertion that the A350 garners interest and orders primarily from second-tier and small first-tier carriers. It boggles my mind that carriers are still thinking of ordering this aircraft when the situation is so dynamic at the moment.
