    Awesome post! I didn't realize some of the cargo carriers were even Russian.

    So 2 quick questions (admittedly I haven't down a search - seems appropriate to rehash in this post even if already discussed):

    1. Why does S7 have 738s and A320s on order?
    2. Why did Aeroflot have such a short tenure with the 777? I was initially thinking it was a size issue, but they do have the A350 on order.

    Quoting RafflesKing (Reply 3):

    That's an issue that it still to be fully investigated. With only two of the type in service, it was a disaster operations-wise. Maintenace was also a big issue. My dad still likes to recall how he made small talk with the captain onboard an SU 772 SVO-PEK, and how the captain complained that SU neglected maintenace of the birds (which was outsourced to LufthansaTechnik by the way). Some say SU's 777 stint had to do with big time money laundering by mid-90s management which included Yeltsin's son-in-law as CEO.

    It seems the B738s are intended for their charter arm. Who knows what's behind the dual fleet policy - low price, availability, politics, etc.

    The Russians are very creative in the liveries as well. Its sad that the Russian Aviation Industry is falling apart. I wish the IL-96-300M became a popular plane. looks better than an A340-200/300 Big grin The 757 Pratts look better than Hairdryers on a similiar body.

    Aeroflot (39 + 41 on order)


    * B767-300ER (11)
    * A321-200 (7 + 7 on order)
    * A320-200 (13)
    * A319-100 (8 + 2 on order)

    * A350XWB (22 on order)
    * A330-200 (10 on order)

    Are you not counting the 22 787 Aeroflot has on order? You're overview list mentions 15 787-8 on order -- are these for another airline? Don't think SU specified types yet....

    Anyway, with 40-50 odd (counting the A330 leases) widebodys entering Aeroflot's fleet over the next few years, where are they planning on flying all these birds?? Surely they will expand Asian service, but does anyone have any idea of increasing or adding additional North American service, perhaps a return to ORD?

    4 of those former NW A319s are at CWF, VP-BHI/BHJ/BHK and BHV. Heading there tomorrow to see which regs/cn's match up...

    It seems right... Being an optimist however, I hope for Sukhoi with their RJ, Tupolev with 204 cargo, and Antonov with with revamped 124's make a difference.

    The 757 at MUC in VIM Airlines colours with Air Bashkortostan titles is no longer stored. It is on C Check at LTU Technik. This aircraft is RA-73015. Air Bashkortostan also operated EI-LTA and EI-LTO, both sub leased from VIM Airlines, although EI-LTA has since been sold to DHL ( I think). Rumour is that one of the other RB211 757s will go to Aurela of Lithuania, possibly EI-LTO.
