, from your profile, you haven´t been on either type, 733 or TU5 - so it doesn´t matter which one you choose, right?
Seriously, the TU5, hands down - provided both options are roughly the same in prices. However bad SVO
may be (and I can´t imagine it´s that bad, especially when travelling on a CIS passport), you´ll forget any bad experience at SVO
in a couple of weeks, but having flown on the TU5 will stay with you forever. Do it, TU5 are pure and unabated fun - been there, done that.
Off topic, Victor, if I may: Taking the train from Odessa to Chisinau, will the Moldovan officials at the border between "Transdniestr" and Moldova give foreigners a hard time?
Can Germans get Visa on Arrival only at the KIV airport or also at land borders? Alternatively, do the flights between ODS and KIV still operate?
