My first ever flight was on a IL
) and I loved it. Later I flew many times on Tu-154s, Tu-134s, IL
-62s and IL
-86s. They all are very good and I hope I'll get the chance of flying in one of those again.
The Tu-154 feels very similar to the MD
-80 and B727. Can't really tell which one of the 3 is the best. They're all good.
Probably my favorite Soviet airliner is the IL
-86. It really feels more spacious than the Airbus widebodies and the 747.
I've flown on that Armenian IL
-86 when it was first delivered back in 1990. It was so clean and the blue gitane seats looked really nice. Too bad that both Armenian IL
-86s will be grounded in a few weeks time.
All the best.
