Nothing beats the wide and spacious cabin of IL86 perhaps except its own noise and vibration during flight :-) Onboard FV 507 from St Petersburg to Novosibirsk. [Nikon D2x, Nikkor 10.5mm Fisheye]

I'm afraid to say that the II-86 has a very ugly interior.

I think the il-86 has one of the worst cabine layouts of any passenger aircraft, is so plain and square, nice photo 5 stars

Wow! No emergency exit markings (do they have one?), no center hat racks, no flight attendant button, no reading lights and one entertainment screen for all! NICE!

It looks spacious because of the missing overhead bins for the center row, but is there really more room than in comparable airliners?

This is the most depressing cabin I've ever seen

Nice shot of an interior that most do not see. I would not like to fly on it though, looks like a flying coffin

Nice photo, but not the best camera angle. Cabin does not look as it is. Don't forget, this is the old airplane. So the interior of course is not modern.

Oh, I am getting flashbacks :) IL86 is quite good looking from the outside, and inside it is a just big. And a very safe airplane it is, by the way, although underpowered and lacking range. It is also very stable and comfortable in turbulence and if you are a grandma and don't cry with joy when the plane makes a fighter mode take-off, this is a perfect airliner for you.
Emergency exits are clearly visible from this angle - they are just in front of the cabin partition, and the red letter signs for them are right above the passage to the next cabin partition.

I hope I never get stuck having to fly on one of those. the whole inside of it looks so depressing with the colors of the seats. notice how the seats are basicly standing straight up.
