When did CSA receive their first IL-62?

Like Aeroflot, LOT etc, they seemed to have operated transatlantic with theirs - which Interflug never did as far as I know

CSA started operating the IL-62 in 1969. The aircraft were operated on long haul flights.

Beside its long haul network, CSA was also using their Il62 on shorter European routes. I flew it once on PRG-FRA !
Looooong time ago ... (1992) .One of my favourite aircraft

My one and only trip on an IL-62 was on CSA from DAM-BTS-PRG in August 1996 - the only time I ever transited BTS, too! Was so pleased to have been able to fly an IL-62 - are there any still in service? Air Koryo? Deta Air?

I've a personal question associated with this trip, my records don't show the outbound aircraft (LHR-PRG-DAM without the BTS stopover), or my return to the UK (PRG-LHR), but in the back of my mind, I sense they may have been 735s, which CSA was getting at the time. Can anyone advise whether the 735 would have been the aircraft on these other flights, all in August 1996?

I believe that it was 737-400s on the PRG-LHR-PRG route back in Aug 1996.
If you know the exact date, you should be able to find the actual aircraft from the LHR Movements archive at : http://www.lhr-lgw.co.uk/groupfiles/newlhrarchives.htm

Aside from Air Koryo who may use theirs occasionally, there are no pax ones left in scheduled service since Deta Air converted UP-I6209 to a full freighter and Cubana retired theirs earlier this year.

I have a first day cover envelope/postmark for IF's IL-62M service from Berlin to Calgary, for the 1988 Olympics. I don't think that was regular service though.

Interflug for years operated SXF-YQX-HAV-YQX-SXF with the IL62.
Crew changes took place at YQX.

I always wanted to go on their IL-62 but the closest I got was a copy of their brochure

It would have been amazing to fly on them back in those days . The brochure lists the cities served and also interesting to note smoking seats one side and non smoking the other side !

Interflug operated transatlantic service to Cuba for years, until shortly before they ceased to exist. Their IL-62s were frequent visitors to Gander (YQX) which was the usual fuel stop on the routes of all the Eastern European carriers that operated to Cuba during that period.

Thanks so much for the link - I'll bookmark that and check other "unknown" data against it. And yes, it does appear that the LHR-PRG-LHR flights were by 734. Now, how to find out what aircraft the PRG-DAM flights were in August 1996 . . . ? Anyone have any ideas?

Was CSA similar to Aeroflot, in that they had a rather extravagant transatlantic offering to "show off", while the service was distinctly less on short flights?
