Their Livery looks Great! But I've heard their seats are very uncomfortable.

I´ve flown SU 777 from LHR to Moscow last summer and the seats were not any worse than those on any other 777s I´ve been flying which in my own opion quite a few: AA, AF, BA, CX, JL, NH, SU, SQ, TG, UA! Of course the pitch in First and Business is not as great as on other carriers but seats are nice and comfortable. Inflight service on the international flights are also OK and similar to many other avarage carriers while the domestic sectors are a long way from 'normal' airline standards.

I flew on an SU 772 routing DEL-SVO a couple of months ago. Let's hope I will never have to do it again!
