Why do you say "bad" right away???????? Instead of saying how do the loads look? Why is everything with Aeroflot always bad? It's NOT!!!

Aeroflot777,
I do not think Malaysia meant any offence: the question was more like "how difficult would it be to get in as non-rev".

Sorry, can not say anything about how full is the flight. But I did not know that Aeroflot takes non-revs, except their own employees. So far they are not part of Skyteam...

Well Aeroflot allows my airline (station agreement) and we obtain a pass from SU, all fees waived, we just pay the taxes.

I meant bad as in loads, I never looked down on Aeroflot. hey look this way, I can fly AZ to CAI with all fees waived and just pay taxes, but I want to take SU, since based on the system, the AZ flight looks riskier on return.

I strictly speak by loads.

I am no longer technically part of SkyTeam (though)

I have to agree with Aeroflot777. SU have gone strides from the airline it was back during the Soviet Era. They use their brand new A319/A320s on their CAI services.

Malaysia, hope you have a good time in Egypt. BTW when are you goin? that way I can try and get you exact loads on SU's flight (very difficult to give you a general answer). As for AZ, I heard that loads on their 3x daily A321 CAI flights (2 from MXP, 1 from FCO) are high. If you'd like, email me via my profile.

Id rather not say for now, but here are the factors

Station Agreements really do help a lot more and save costs over
regular Airline OAL benefits, cause most of Station Agreements are free
and gives you more flexibility to travel other than your airline.

I have no wife
I have no life
I have plenty to do shift trades

So thats how I can travel on my own often
