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?

Probably both, meaning replacing their 767s and expand. With 10 A332s and 22 A350XWBs on order expansion should also be on their minds.

Hey Henry!!
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 hope that helps.

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?

Don't forget 22 x 787-8's as well. Truly amazing - 54 new widebodies.

MEA returning 3 A330-243s to their lessors over the next two years. Also if I'm not mistaken Cathay are returning their A330s starting soon, not sure about that one though.

The problem is their A330s are all -300s so unless someone can shrink them, they won't fit SU plans. Big grin

- I think you are mistaken on this point, CX are actually adding to the fleet, not reducing it.

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 The older IL-86s and TU-154s should be withdrawn for the fleet ASAP.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?

They are listed on Boeing.com, so they have to be firm.

I love how the IL96 comes up as " Ilyushin IL96 Turbo" in the flight details. Fantastic.

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...

Nicely timed to link up with the thread, answers to your questions below:

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, March 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AerCap Holdings
N.V. ("AerCap," NYSE: AER) today announced that it has signed agreements to
lease 10 new Airbus A330-200 aircraft to the Russian national carrier Aeroflot
for lease periods between nine and 10 years. The aircraft are part of the
order for 20 A330s that AerCap placed with Airbus in December 2006 and
increased by another 10 aircraft in March 2007.

The aircraft for Aeroflot will be powered by Rolls-Royce engines and are
scheduled to be delivered between November 2008 and April 2010.

Dmitry Senatorov, Head of Aeroflot's Fleet Planning and Aircraft
Procurement Department said: "A330s are important additions to our long-range
capabilities and allow us to expand our presence in our strategic markets in
Asia and the Far East."

I've learned from SU that SU's A332's will have 241 seats, 207 economy and 34 business. All seats will offer AVOD systems, and satellite phones. Business class will have lie-flat seats.

In comparison to other airlines that operate the A332,
NW has 243, 211 economy and 32 business.
AF has 219, 179 economy and 40 business (espace affaires)
KLM has 251, 221 economy and 30 business

So I'm excited for SU, they seem to want to concentrate the planes routes to Asia though. Looks like all 767's will be operating to NA while the A332 will be to Asia.
