Does anyone have an idea as to the routes where Aeroflot currently flies the TU-154? A friend of mine really wants to try one out before Aeroflot retires them in October.

SU website current schedules show Tu-154 on certain flights between SVO and the following points (all domestic except Kiev, Ukraine and Ulaan Baatar, Mongolia). I may have missed a couple. The route with the most Tu-154s appears to be SVO-LED (St. Petersburg).

AER - Adler-Sochi
AAP - Anapa
SVX - Ekaterinburg
IKT - Irkutsk
KGD - Kaliningrad
IEV - Kiev
KKR - Krasnoyarsk
MRV - Mineralnye Vody
ROV - Rostov
KUF - Samara
LED - St. Petersburg
SIP - Simferopol
SGC - Surgut
TJM - Tyumen
UFA - Ufa
VOG - Volgograd
ULN - Ulaan Bataar
VOG - Volgograd

TU-154 are rotated from time to time with the 320 and 319 on certain routes depending on mx/lf

Begging your pardon there Sir, but in the English language it is correct to call the country 'The Ukraine'. It is not relevant what anyone's opinion of that might be, because it happens to be a grammatical fact. One of the many quirks of English, so I'm afraid you have to like it or lump it, as we say.

By all means, and he's entitled to his opinion, but as a native speaker and a former English teacher, I am well aware of what the correct form is.

I don't even doubt in that, but independent sources all give me "Ukraine" instead of "The Ukraine" so maybe you could give me some source/explaination so i can have a read why it is The Ukraine, and not The Germany(or any other country).

I think we've strayed off topic enough with this already. If you really want to, search for more sources. They're easily found.

Meanwhile, the only point I wanted to make in the first place was that Simferopol is not an Aeroflot domestic route.

My advice to ervyone - go fly the Aeroflot TU-154 while you can, I know I want to, but probably won't make it in time.

Just to go back to the off topic point, I really hate it when people refer to "The Lebanon".
It's not "The" Lebanon, it's Lebanon, plain and simple. Just like it isn't "The France" or "The Spain". Arghhhh

Back to the topic: I hadn't realised that the TU 154 route network is now that limited! They used to fly them down to Beirut and Damascus.

The TU-154 network isn't that limited as shown here above, there are plenty of other (mostly Russian and other CIS countries) airlines who still operate them (like U6 FV etc)

But would like to note SU has some good fares on SVO-KBP if you're in Moscow and want one last ride on the Tu-154

On flights to central Siberia and the far-east of Russia, does the TU-154 have to stop for refueling?
The TU-154 doesn't have the range for Moscow - Irkutsk non-stop, or does it?

Sorry to read about Aeroflot retiring them. I flew on their TU-154 from Moscow to Istanbul. They are a blast to fly on and worth the hassle of getting a Russian Visa to enter Russia to fly on one.  Cool

Could we all be used to saying "The Ukraine" because for many years of most of our lives, "The Ukraine" was a part, a geographical region if you will, of the Soviet Union, and thus as we all know The North, The South, etc, geographical regions all get "The."

While "The" may not be correct, for many people it may have always been that.

For central Siberia refuelling isn't needed, only for the very far-east of Russia (only PKC as VVO is within the MOW-range) there needs to be a refuel-stop if some company would want to use it from MOW.

It's non-stop, in fact it's approximately 2600 mi, so with the SU config perfect.

Why am I under the impression that when Aeroflot says they will retire a type they don't actually do it right away?

For example the Tu-134s were supposed to be retired in the beginning of 2008 yet:

And the Il-86 was supposed to be retired in 2007 I believe but they flew after that. Also Aeroflot-Don still flies them although I don't know if the two are connected.

Shouldn't SU keep the 154s a bit more since they are paid off?

According to a Russian aviation forum, Aeroflot-Nord is supposedly flying the Tu in that picture (RA-65784). Why they didn't repaint it, and if it's true, i don't know..

What's interesting is SU keeps changing it's plans; I read an article not too long ago that they were putting new cabins and personal televisions in the Il-96. Not anymore, I guess

D9 is 100% SU owned. D9 still flies the IL-86, and received them from SU. It wouldn't surprise me if some of the SU TU-154 will go to D9.
