So, I happened to come across the current Rossiya printed timetable. Overall, this appears to be a pretty impressive operation, Seven fleet types, 63 destinations, a huge charter operation. a nre corporate identity, etc.
However, I noticed that Rossiya operates very few scheduled flights overall. In fact, only a few routes are served with a daily frequency: LED-ARH, LED-SVX, LED-HEL, LED-KGD, LED-DME, and LED-CDG. Most routes are served only once or twice per week.
I'm wondering if anyone knows Rossiya's fleet size in total. At first glance it appears quite small. For example, I'd assume that they operate only 1 763, used twice per week LED-PEK, and 5 times per week LED-HRG. Its the only place where I can find it operating in the timetable.
