-96 is very shakey during both, landing and take off.
So much so in fact, that on my last flight, one of the ceiling panels came off and fell down, just above the passangers seated in the middle section of the plane, hanging off about 6 inches obove the heads.
The flight was SU
something from Moscow to london on the 21st of october,
the whole cabin ceiling shakes during taxi take off and landing, this is especially noticable in the IL
-96 with it being a widebody aircraft with no centre bins.
Just for the record- that plane is humongous!!! a fantastic piece of machinery, the space in the aisles was like nothing ive seen before, a food cart and a person can fit by very comfortably, side by side. The seating configuration made for a very roomy and comfy flight, the 333 config is fantastic, but im sure they could squeeze another seat in the middle if they really wanted.
How does the cabin width compare to other widebodies?
Aeroflot did well on this particular flight- i got a smile out of some of they flight atendents.
Generally an excellent flight but no entertainment.
back to the main question... ive experienced it on many aircraft, especially the big ones and the russian birds, namely the IL
-96 and the IL
-62 (IL-62 probably due to age)
