Very sad to see dead plane. Dead young plane. This Il-86 build 1988. You can see the end of Il-86's-epoch in St.Petersburg. Cabin will be take apart and plane will be scraped...

Nice shot but comfortability... zero!

The IL-86 is a great aircraft, very confortable. Sad to know that those magnificent birds are becoming rare.

This particular airliner had been used as a training equipment for the firemen of Pulkovo airport for a while, thence such a condition. I remember flying on this very bird on my holidays as a teenager - and trust me, it actually had quite comfortable seating. At least a more comfortable one than the cattle class on some B737s operated by Euro low-cost airlines.

They say, this Il-86 is in a museum now.
