When you fly low cost, you don't expect much. It does not depend on the nationality of the airline. So, the Airbus A319 was fairly OK. But it's good to see a flight crew who is mostly smiling. Most LC companies tend to easily loose this important part of the experience.

We had not had very high expectations of the former Aeroflot but were pleasantly surprised. The timing of the flight to St Petersburg suited us better than that of BA but we had some concern that the plane would not arrive in time to enable us to get to our hotel by public transport before it closed for the night....

Our flight was fully booked and lasted a bit over 5 hours. The cabin crew were pleasant enough and the kosher meal was edible, though not hot enough. However, the aircraft, an Airbus A320-321 was nothing more than a bus with wings. Legroom was practically non-existent such that if the passenger in front of you chose to recline, the seat...

Lowest communication level between Aircompany and Tour operator. The flight 5702 was delayed for 6 hours - noone warned! We arrived at the Airport early in the morning and were informed about the delay, at once. Why wasn't BiblioGlobus informed immediatelly? We could stay at hotel and spend the last day normally. Instead - we spent in the Airport the...

I'd booked an Aeroflot flight - and initially rather concerned to find that I'd be using one of their subsidiaries - Rossiya. However, I need not have worried. Flew to St. Petersburg and back from London Gatwick. Flights on time; modern aircraft (Airbus); everyone very friendly; and we even had complimentary food (really good sandwich) and tea/coffee. Having read the...

The flight was delayed by an hour. Entertainment programs did not work. The food was bad for dinner, but breakfast is a bit better.

Rossiya does OK on this long flight - non-working reading lights an no inflight entertainment are an odd combination though. Everything else fine. Plus Friendly attendants. Food was quite plentiful with choice of two meals. Cheap fare - prices very volatile, we found the best fare 7 or 8 months before departure. This summer flight was full so don't leave...

i almost never write a negative review, but i guess it’s more correct to spread the word so others don’t get as disappointed. pure facts: two persons flying, 2 bags to check in, asking airline rep - how much is it if we have slight overweight? any overweight is 50€ she says. we check in both and go to pay...

We received boarding passes for row 9 but at the boarding gate we were called and they changed them for row 8. This turned out to be the row in front of the emergency exit with 2 problems: 1. The leg space is already very limited, maybe a few mm more than the also unacceptable Vueling. The original boarding passes...

This was an Aeroflot code-share flight, operated by Rossiya Russian Airlines. Initially, I was slightly disappointed because I enjoy Aeroflot hospitality. I needn't have worried. The crew on this flight were very professional indeed. Immaculately presented and had very good English skills. The Captain was informative and all aspects of the flight were very smooth indeed. A perfect take-off and...
