Who said Aeroflot was getting rid of their Il-96's? They actually have six in their fleet too.

Quoting LAXintl,reply=14 in the thread linked above:
Its good to see Aeroflot becoming more and more run along commercial lines. These old Russian dogs were economic basket cases compared to Western equipment.

Here is a quote from the Director of Aeroflot that was published last fall;

Let's compare the wide bodies. We have long been operating the Ilyushin Il-96, while we have Boeing 767-300ER. The Ilyushin burns 12 tonnes per hours, the Boeing 5.5 tonnes. Let's multiply 10,000's flight hours by six tonnes of fuel-- that's the sort of saving we can get through fleet renewal.

Our priorities are simple, when we replace a Soviet airliner for similarly sized Airbus or Boeing, we save fuels in the order of tonnes per hour, while also seeing much greater operating reliability, and passenger comfort.

What about to Conviasa after the agreement signed last Christmas during a visit of Russian Navy and Russian President to Caracas? I heard that Conviasa signed a deal to purchase 3 or 4 Ilyushin IL-96's...

There will be two IL96. Apparently one of them will be a former Aeroflot machine and the other one will be brand new. It's been rumored that one of these two airplanes will be for VIP use, altough this hasn't been confirmed yet.

And what about the ex Kass Air and Domodedovo Il-96 which are (I think) already stored?
I think Air Koryo has no need of such a large aircraft. Don't forget their Tu-204-300 is a long range aircraft......
Maybe in Iran or Syria?

Quoting UN_B732 (Reply 7):

Flight 1: JFK-SVO: 3 hrs late - no explanation, no reason. Just "late"

Flight 2: SVO-DEL: 7 hrs late due to "fog" in DEL. Spoke with friends, there was no fog.

Flight 3: DEL-SVO: 16 hrs late, again due to "fog." Amazingly, AI, JET, AA, CO, BA, VS, AF, KL, LH all operated on-time.

Arrival in Moscow Despite arriving 16 hrs late, no gate. Elderly, etc had to come down onto ramp in -27F!!!

Connection missed, but no arrangements made. Had to wait 3 hrs for hotel.

Imprisoned in hotel till next days flight. Not allowed to leave hotel floor

Flight 4: SVO-JFK: 2 hrs late. No reason. Just late.

Never again...

Ehm,that's visa related, has nothing to do with SU or IL-96. However i agree with you that it's not fun!

Don't fly then... I always liked SU, the most friendly crew with no "free" smiles like in McDonalds...  Smile

For some reason I think those numbers reflect on the Il-86 and not the 96.

Would Cubana take a few more to replace the last of their IL-62M'S?
