In 1972 and 1983, I took trips to the interior of the Soviet Union. I flew from St. Petersburg-Moscow both times. I was there on business. I was apalled at the safety and service during this time period. I was on IL-62s both times coincidentally. If you have any questions about the service during this time or anything relating to air travel during the Soviet Union times, please feel free to ask me. Anyone have any similar experiances?
