Finally I got a ride on this amazing Machine! Such a stunning feeling you get inside this aircraft, all planes of Ilyushin design bureau are famous of their reliability and build quality. You feel like in an aircraft that was made by engineers not by a managers. There is no plastic feeling like you get in Airbus or Boeing. You feel like in huge well-built airliner that piloting by a PILOT not by a computer... At 30th of March Aeroflot will stop using Ilyushin IL-96. [5D mkIII + EF 15 f/2.8]

Nice photo. But certainly Ilyushin planes are not famous for their reliability and build quality.

Well, Il-96 is one of the first FBW-equipped airliners, so in fact it is flown by a computer just like an Airbus 320 (an aircraft from the same generation).

Ilyushin planes are not famous for their reliability and build quality! No competition for Airbus and Boeing at all. Btw. Aeroflot was never happy with the Il-96 = flop!

Great shot. Don't forget McDonnell Douglas, they're planes (most) also give a plastic feeling... cough cough MD-11, cough cough MD-90....
