Aeroflot Doubles Frequencies Into JFK.

Sun Feb 16, 2003 9:34 pm

Aeroflot has doubled the frequencies on Moscow-New York-Washington and on Moscow-New York, thus making double-daily service into Moscow from JFK and vice versa. Flight 316 and 318 are the numbers going JFK-Moscow. A310s are serving these markets, and they are not too comfortable for these lengths. Much rather take a 767..

Why not just use one of their 777's and keep it to one daily flight, or double daily 767-300ER's? Is there really THAT much demand on these flights? DL fly once a day as well, with a 767.

Is that non-stop with the A310? - must be right on the edge of it's range although I believe they can store extra fuel in the rear cargo hold

Guess you guys have never heard of Little Odessa, Brighton Beach, Shepshead Bay etc.

Brooklyn has a huge Russian population, and it keeps getting bigger.

There is still only one SU flight per day into JFK. On certain days though, it arrives/departs at differnt times, and uses a different flight #.

Some Days, on Flight Status I have seen both 316 and 318 go across the pond.
Why do they have A310s on these routes, that are constantly full from Washington. Coach a lot of times is overbooked. Almost ALWAYS as a rule, because they book coach seats by the capactiy on the 763s and a few pax get booked into the biz. A 777 would be much more feasible, and more attractive from a customer perspective.

Any chance Aeroflot will resume service to ORD in the near future?

The A310-300 can make it across the Atlantic from New York to Moscow with no real problems. Pan Am used to operate one on the JFK-SVO route although often the flight was operated with a 747-100. Delta flies the 767-300ER daily from JFK.

Aeroflot DOES have a few 777's so why not use them on this premier route?

Perhaps the Russina pax on a VFR trip bring lots of Russian 'goodies' for those living in the States - hence the 310?

Because SU only has two 772ERs and they're in the process of phasing them out  Sad

Off topic :

Has Aeroflot make a decision how many 767s are they going to order ? It has been quite some time after announcing their order for A320s .
