The Yamal Airlines fleet mainly consists of Western built jets, although it utilises modern Russian built Sukhoi Superjets on many of its internal services including its Tyumen to Irkutsk route.

Since the flight we took was a charter flight I did not have high expectations. Surprisingly, the service was good and the food wasn't bad. Staff was welcoming.

The airline services could have been better. There wasn't enough legroom and no in-flight entertainment. The flight-attendants were a bit rude and did not speak a word in English. Same thing for the pilot announcements. No announcement was made in English, only in Russian which left me at a loss. However, the flight departed Domodedovo airport exactly in time.
