In your experience, which Russian carrier is best? I'm thinking of traveling to Russia and visiting several places and am wondering if any of the airlines have the same or better quality as SU.

From point of quality S7 Airlines comes to my mind...

But honestly, as av geek I would look out for more exotic aircraft, like Utair B767-200ER. :airplane:

Off topic, it's a dark day for avgeekery if we consider any variant of the 767 go be exotic.

Would you really say that a B767-200ER is common, and not exotic?

Ural Airlines seems to be relatively good these days as well. Maybe not as good as Aeroflot or S7, but certainly not bad either.

Well, 767 in general is still common.
