It is to my knowledge now that Aeroflot operates 767's from JFK-SVO, however am I imagining it, or did they once operate a Russian A/C (Tupelov something or other, not too familiar with Russian a/c) into JFK?

If so, when was it, how long did it last, and why was the service discontinued?

Thanks in advance..

SU operated the Ilyushin-62 for many years from the time they started scheduled service to the USA in 1968. Prior to that they occasionally operated non-scheduled flights carrying government officials etc. using the huge Tupolev-114 turboprop.

Until fairly recently SU also used the Ilyushin-96 widebody on their SVO-SEA and SVO-LAX routes but I believe those are both B767-300ERs now. Several years ago SU also had infrequent service from the Russian far east across the Pacific to ANC and SEA and if memory correct they used a mix of IL-62 and TU-154 on those routes. That was when AS also operated to that part of Russia using MD-80s from ANC.

Dalavia (H8) will begin a weekly Petroplavosk/Kamchatsky (PKC)-ANC route June 17 utilizing their Tu-214s.

Interestingly Magadan, Petropavlosk, Kharborovsk, Yuzhno, and Vladivostok have all received Alaska Airlines service at one point in time

Isn't Northwest starting VVO-JFK service sometime next year?

Aeroflot at one time offered IL-62 service SVO-SNN-MIA-LIM (?).

Also, regarding Russian aircraft in the U.S., a freight operator was (still is?) operating Antonov turboprops (AN24?) out of MIA and nearby OPF.

Gosh, that's a lot of ? marks...

This thread made me break out the winter 1991-92 schedule for Aeroflot "Soviet" Airlines.

Here is what they operated out of Moscow to the US:
SVO-SNN-MIA IL6
SVO-SNN-YQX-JFK ILW
SVO-SNN-IAD IL6

Other US flights I found:
KHV-ANC-SFO IL6
LED-SNN-YQX-JFK IL6
KBP-SNN-JFK IL6 (nonstop JFK-KBP eastbound)

Hope this helps.

Aside from the occasional substitution, SU doesn't use its longhaul Ilyushin equipment due to fuel consumption and range requirements. The IL-86 would require a stop in Shannon (only used for charters now anyway) and the 767-300ER is far more economical to operate than the IL-96s.
