Air Map JFK-SVO

Sun Nov 21, 2004 5:46 am

Leaving for SVO tomorrow. Does anyone know a web site that has good air route maps? I'm very interested in knowing what part of the world I will be flying over.

Are you on Aeroflot or Delta? Aeroflot definitely has Air Show (map) for a good part of the flight, not sure about DL.
Enjoy your flight, and enjoy Russia!
What now?

If you fly Aeroflot, is the airmap in Russian and English ? MOCKBA?

I would guess that the Airshow switches back and forth between Russian and English. That's how I've seen it on most international airlines--i.e., alternating between the local language(s) and English. I've seen it in Japanese, Chinese, French, German, Spanish, Dutch, etc., so I'm sure programming it in Russian is no problem.

If you are traveling on Aeroflot, they will have an airmap to show throughout the flight. The language alternates between Russian and English. However since I haven't flown Delta on this route for a couple of years already I really don't remember whether or not they have one. Ill be flying Delta on the same route as you in early January.

Your route will take you northeast from JFK over BOS, Halifax, then up over Newfoundland north of Gander. You will likely cross between Iceland and the Shetlands toward Stavanger, then across Norway, Sweden and the Baltic then into Russia south of St. Petersburg and direct to Moscow.

Returning, you will go further north, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Stockholm, across Norway north of Bergen, out over the Atlantic over the southernmost part of Greenland, then across the North Atlantic toward northern Newfoundland, then SW across Prince Edward Island, crossing into the USA over Maine, then to Boston and into the JFK east arrivals corridor.

Its just a little over eight and 1/2 hours to Moscow from JFK, the return will be about 9+ give or take the winds. For sure you will want a window seat coming home, because the northern crossing is one of the most scenic routes in the world. Greenland, especially in the South is very unique, and very diffferent that that most people expect.

Have a great trip and if you are flying Aeroflot, make sure you take an extra sandwick or large snack on board. You will need them.

If you are flying Aeroflot you do NOT need to take an extra sandwich or large snack. The food is the same as other major carriers in economy!
