A lot of times, I'll just do a flight search to see the times and lengths of flights, just out of curiosity. Well, today I was searching TXL(Berlin)-ULN(Ulan Batar, Mongolia) to see the MIAT flight through SVO. The SVO-ULN leg is 4920 miles. It is only scheduled as 6 hours and 30 minutes and the air time is probably less than that, as it is with most flights. 6.5 hours is really fast for almost 5000 miles. I'm not sure what that is in km., but I would think maybe like 7500 or 8000 (?). The ULN-SVO leg on the return is only scheduled as 7 hours and 5 minutes. That is so fast for 5000 miles! Delta's FCO-ATL flight operated by an MD-11 is 5035 miles and Delta has it scheduled as 10 hours and 35 minutes. The MIAT flight is an A310. I wasn't aware of A310s being these very fast planes, just normal. Is there a lack of much headwind flying west over Russia? Why are these flights so short? I made sure to check that the 4920 miles are not the whole trip. The whole trip totals 5023 miles (TXL-SVO is 1003). BTW, are there airbridges at ULN?

I two other questions also. The layover in SVO is only 1 hour. Does MIAT let you off of the plane in SVO? Also, what meals and how many movies does MIAT show (if any)?
