Haven't heard anything about this, but sounds interesting. In my opinion, (I know it won't happen) but they should take advantage of Vnukovo airport in Moscow. That way, they won't have to interfere with the rest of European traffic, and make their service more personal. Moscow has a new train service connecting Vnukovo Airport with downtown Moscow via the Kievskii Voksal (Kiev Train Station). It would be simply awesome if they started flights to VKO.

I remember this being something bmi wanted quite some time ago, too. I heard at the time that they were under pressure to reciprocally codeshare with Transaero at the time, each carrier carrying eachothers' flight nos, but BD were not happy with this. How true this was, I don't know.
