Aeroflot B777-300ER On Domestic Routes

Wed Nov 21, 2012 6:50 am

I saw by coincidence that Aeroflot will be using its B777-300ER on a number of routes to the Russian Far East. For instance, daily to Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, 6x week to Petropavlovsk.

Any other routes?

They are domestic but they are also long haul, i´m quite sure that both of them will get a nice loads in premium cabins and cargo as well.

Makes perfect sense to me, they won't need a high frequency with that kind of distance, a larger long haul
aircraft is probably well suited. It's amazing though to think you can fly a 9 hr flight and still be in the same country!

Are these flights crew familiarisation prior to the aircraft being deployed on key international routes...?

I´m sure for that they could do Moscow-St Petesburg or something shoter than a 9 hours flight to Yuzhno or Petropavlosk, maybe we can have a better idea if some can share the plan configuration of the plane, but i think it will be in 2 clases.

Transaero is pushing really hard and they are getting big planes so SU needs fight as well.

Speaking of big planes in Russia, what type of airliners are used on the DME/SVO to KHV non-stop route?

DME-KHV is served by Transaero daily with B777-300s. SVO-KHV is served by Aeroflot with a mix A330-200s, A330-300s and B767-300ERs as well as Aeroflot subsidiary Orenair operating a B777-200ER. Aeroflot and Orenair together offer three daily flights.

I believe these aircraft will feature business, premium economy, and economy.
