Does anyone have any information on when SU is expected to receive their first Airbus A330's? I know they are leasing them for about 10 years, but they are supposed to get them this year. Have the plans been changed? Any leaks on which routes they'll operate, and whether SU is going to expand services?

Long time no chat! Aeroflot, a few days ago, re-did their website. So that's brand new. Even though it has bugs to work out they seem to be on a good track. Better than the old one. I just wish they had left the beautiful banner on the top of the page with one of their a/c flying in the skies. Anyways, judging from the fleet information page on their website, the A330s are brand new. I don't know how. And they will start delivery before year's end.

I can't believe they redid their website. I was just there a couple of days ago, and it was the old one. It's vastly improved, but I'm worried that they still haven't hired a professional English speaker to proof read their site, as there are 8 daily flight to St. Peterburg. Of course forgetting the 's' is minor. Great news for Aeroflot, but when will they get their first plane?

Quoting Cruiser (Reply 6): Don't forget 22 x 787-8's as well. Truly amazing - 54 new widebodies.
Will the addition of these new widebodies enable SU to retire its Russian built aircraft? I believe they have recently acquired some IL-96s, and they are the launch customer for the new Sjet. The older IL-86s and TU-154s should be withdrawn for the fleet ASAP.
I think the A332 will looking amazing in SU's stunning colour scheme

My understanding is that SU will be leasing A332 until A350 (which SU buys) are ready and available.
So it's going to be a standard Airbus deal that is used for various ailines: lease before the bought ac delivered.
We all are waiting for A332. Aeroflot is not getting updated cabins for their Boeing 767-300.
And the staff tries hard to provide decent service.
In business class they just give DVD palyers to all as there's no personal entertainment system in seats.
Our flagship has been trying hard!!!
As to B787 - can anybody confirm that those orders were confirmed?
Is SU going to buy/lease them?

Quoting LH648 (Reply 19): p.s. Actually I've visited Aeroflot's web-site to find their online shop... But failed to find a link on it. Only Google helped me.
Yeah they used to have it on their old site years ago. It disappeared a very long time ago. I even called their Moscow office and she told me they took it down, but if I searched the internet I'd find it. Don't have any clue as to why...
