Can anyone tell me the reason why Aeroflot would utilize a small a/c such as the A310 (flight #582) to fly 5,000 miles directly from NRT to MOW? Is this possible? I do know that Aeroflot used Ilyushin before but was very unpopular in Japan and opted to change a/c type to Airbus.

I would like to know if the A310 has such range capability to make the direct flight. Perhaps a reconfigured A310? Any input would be appreciated!

Does it stop somewhere? AeroFLOT has used A310s on Moscow-Miami, but with a stopover in Shannon.

I do not understand why the IL 96 was so unpopular in Japan. I have seen both SU's IL and big 747 of Japanese carriers (ANA I think it was) at Sheremetievo and the SU's is always full while the others not so much. That surely means that SU is cheaper.
The plane is fine, a fraction noisier than an A 340 or a 747.
I have flown SU's A310 from Moscow to Madrid and they were fine and found the service ok. I guess that if they use them it's because they can get them there, perhaps with full fuel reserves and a limited amount of passengers and cargo.
Any A310 pilot around to give more specifics?
