A logical step for two Skyteam members. Hope we can see Aeroflot returning with its own metal to the region sometime, although it’s unlikely.

It would be great to see SU back in South America; they used to fly to EZE, SCL and LIM. But that could have been an airline from a different planet compared to today's SU.

AR just increased frequencies to MAD, adding a daytime flight from EZE that gets to MAD very early in the AM, ideal for onward connections to SVO. These flights should be heavily patronized during the World Cup - thousands of Argentinians are making the trip to Russia to cheer the national team. I understand LH has also done quite well with the local fans. Russia and Argentina have signed an agreement banning entry to 3,000 known hooligans from Argentina into Russia.

I always think about a GRU-BRU-SVO flight, 3x weekly, with a A332, do you think this would be feasible?

Well, you'd find people to fill that A332. The question is how profitable would such a flight be? Hint: Profits? What profits?

Remember in the 80s LAP (ZP) used to fly to Brussels from ASU via DKR on the 707s. And we all know where LAP ended.
