Over the years I have had the pleasure of flying on a couple of Aeroflot TU
-154M flights and I would agree that the general interior features are not up to the same standards as might be expected on a similarly sized Airbus or Boeing aircraft. The seats are, to say the least interesting for those of us used to American carriers. The worst thing for me was knocking my head on the entry door - it seems that the height is a bit less than I was accustomed to.
Having said that, there is NOTHING like a takeoff in a TU
-154. The sound of the engines is intense and, on the flights I have travelled, incredibly rewarding. The speed and angle of the takeoff were absolutely WILD out of SVO
Overall, the experience was different and INCREDIBLY fun. The flights are relatively quiet, smooth, and comfortable within the confines of the seating. I would LOVE to get on one again!
