How To Get On An Aeroflot Il-96

Mon Sep 07, 2009 10:50 am

I'd like to fly on an Aeroflot Il-96 around November and try to find, preferably international, flights.
I heared they still fly to Hanoi, Vietnam but when I checked dates in November 09 it are all 767s. On which routes are they used?

They go back to BKK all the time, I was going to book it last year but ended up going with a different airline.

I flew an SU IL9 in 2001 or thereabouts on SVO-DEL. Great experience! Even had coming-off carpet! lol.

Sorry, but they seem to have wiped them off their schedule. I vaguely remember that was supposed to happen at the end of the season but either I am wrong or they've done it prematurely.

To the best of my knowledge the last route standing was SVO BKK but it seems to be 330 now. All other long-haul ones (even Far East Russia) have gone to either 767 or 330.

IRC there were talks about the IL9s being withdrawn at the end of the summer-schedule, so that might be the answer. And they have a couple of more A330s on the way at the last part of the year, so it seems like a reasonable explenation.  Sad
