For this flight, we've gone with Aeroflot. It's not part of my usual alliance and it's reputation is less than sterling, but how would they stack up today? Not that great, unfortunately. From a technical side, Aeroflot has shaken off the older Soviet planes, with the majority of it's fleet being newer airbus planes. In our case, we got an older Boeing 767 and a massive delay. More than 4 hours on the ground with zero explanation.
Comrade Winnie the Pooh? Yup. Nu, Pogodi? Yup. There was a collection of old soviet films and cartoons that looked like they would have been an interesting window into that era, but instead we got some generic American blockbusters.
