The seats were very small but the airline was clean. The crew was not welcoming at all. We were glad it was not a long flight.

The seats are a little thin and taper people can hit you with their knees but as no fuss transport between Saint Petersburg and Moscow it’s good.

+ communicative pilot - kept us updated on the flight status - the flight attendants were very unwelcoming - you could really see and feel that they hate their job a lot.

We booked economy comfortable seats on the second floor of the airplane. Only business class and economy comfortable seats were at this area. We paid about 2500 rubles for each seat. Glad we did that - leg space and seat space was awesome! I had a great flight just because we had a super comfortable, quiet flight. Food was average...

What to say? you buy an Aeroflot ticket and you realize they gave you a Rossiya ticket. Not so much space on the seats apparently a little less leg space. The service is to the minimum for a regular airline. drinks very limited, food always a sandwich. They serve the food after the drink so if the sandwich is dry...

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.
