Aeroflot IL96 In 2014 / Final 6 Months  
User currently offlineAP1 From Barbados, joined Dec 2013, 9 posts, RR: 0

Morning all,

Was alarmed to read this morning that Aeroflot IL96 ops will cease come April 2014. I noticed they still operated to IST up to Jan'14 but after that it appears to revert to A32S. Anyone know where these little beauties will be going up until Apr'14? Preferably outside Russia to avoid visa drama...

Cheers

AP1

Go LHR-SVO-IST and tranist for a few hours no visa price around EUR200-210 oneway then get TK or BA back. I know a few looking at this kind of option.

I was looking at exactly that but the IL96 seems to vanish after Jan'14. Are they running all the way to Apr'14?

I just looked at 10th Feb SVO-IST SU2130 and its showing with seat map too as IL9 so unless they sub it for an Airbus there is a very good chance. Checked 17th March too and the same.

SU2130/1 are still operated by IL-96, it seems. They might change that, who knows.

They also do MOW-TAS... good luck getting a Uzbekistani visa, then

They might end up with CU or JS. JS flight from PEK to FNJ might need bigger aircrafts for this particular route and for VVIP travel. As for CU, it has already been announce they will operate more.

Some other airlines such as Air Zimbabwe or Sudan Airways might be interested too...

For a fun trip, go to Aeroflot.ru and select multiple destination, then put in OSL-SVO as the first leg and SVO-IST as the second leg (for some reason if you put in OSL-IST it doesn't offer any connections). You will get an amazingly low one way fare (like €145 when I booked) and on two Russian types - first leg is SSJ and second leg is IL9. Connection time at SVO is about four hours or something. No visa required, you're not going through immigration. Works in Jan, haven't tried it for Feb or later.

Btw the Il-96 is a fantastic ride, absolutely amazing. And how many wide body types have ever existed? The answer by my rough count is THIRTEEN (747, 767, 777, 787; A300, A310, A330, A340, A380; L1011; DC-10; Il-86, Il-96) and it isn't often you get to fly a Russian one. Get on this bird before she's gone, you won't regret it!

The problem booking low fares to Russia is the visa issue. You never know if you will obtain the visa in time when you book cheap flights at short notice, which are of course non-refundable. For example, the visa section at the Russian consulate in GVA is only open a few hours a week. That's always deterred me from visiting Russia, apart from the lengthy visa application and high fee. I don't know why Russia doesn't implement a 'visa on arrival' system like Turkey and several Gulf states for nationalities that aren't likely to present any security or visa overstay issues. It would no doubt result in a huge increase in inbound tourism.

You forgot the MD-11 and the A350. Buth the classic widebodies to me are: AB3, D1C, ILW, L10, 741, 310 and to a certain extend also 340, IL9 and 767...

I had the chance to be on RA-96010 an RA-96011 this summer to AER and I was amazed by the plane. To me it truely was the best ride ever, but not from an enthusiastics point of view, but rather the quality and the comfort of the ride.

Here some impressions:

This is a real shame, but not particularly surprising.

Sadly, by just about any measurement, the Il-96 cannot be considered a success. With just 26 delivered from a total order book of 33, it's a real struggle to see Il-96s 'in the wild'.

For a plane that first flew in 1988, a painful production run has never seen more than three built in any year and no less than eight years seeing no deliveries at all (including just one delivery between 1997 and 2003).

All that said, it's a plane I love to see and photograph.

Well you can't be surprised. Aeroflot has the oldest IL-96's. They are all around 20 years old. Some - more.

101 reifel : Hi, is the final IL96 flight to IST over? I have checked SU's schedule and it only says A320 from now on....
102 pegasus1 : It is supposed to be flying until the end of March. I've just booked a trip OSL-SVO-IST for 20/22 March and it was still showing as an IL96 in Aerofl
103 reifel : Hi Pegasus, Thanks for your reply. I checked all datesin March and it showed A320. Strange, I guess it's worth a try. I was looking for the last March

105 reifel : Thanks Pegasus, that is very helpful, I will have a look at it, it's still worth a try. I looked at that OSL option already, and if I get a SU9 that w

112 airevents : @ ReinerS: nice routing. I hope (for you) the OSL-SVO leg will not be cancelled. According to flightaware, this happened a few times in the last weeks
113 vfw614 : Apparently the midnight'ish OSL-SVO often is very lightly booked. When I did the RRJ/IL9 trip last month, there were less than 30 pax and I have hear

119 reifel : If the flight OSL-SVO is cancelled, that also means it wouldn't have left SVO 3 hours or so earlier. Enough time to at least try to get SU to rebook
120 pegasus1 : I'm assuming that if we needed to get from OSL to CPH (or ARN) on SAS, that we would have to buy a separate ticket (hence my comment about whether you
