I don't even think 1000 is that impressive of a figure.. I would've guessed more.. since pretty much every soviet plane type from the small An-2 to the big An-124 had Aeroflot colors back then. Actually just jets alone, I'm pretty sure it was over 1000.
I don't mean to be picky but in '99 was when they stopped serving Miami, not 98. In early '98 they still brought in the Il-62!. Shortly after it was all A310.. until sometime -I think it was spring of '99- when the service ended.
I remember once in '94 I was coming from MCO
and when we landed there were 2 IL
-62s next to each other. Did SU
have a 2x frequency on some days?
