Aeroflot has no first class. Business class to NY - yes, full-flat and nice. New plane, nice food. comparing to Delta - they have a angled seat layout, providing everyone aisle access, Aeroflot offers 2+2+2 seating - good if flying together, and normal window access.
Pictures on Aeroflot.ru, actually. New Airbus 330 will be your plane
The airbus is nice. AIM.
Delta now has 1-2-1 config with full lie flat seats for flight from JFK to Moscow...so, quite cozy and also zero access issues...I did not find their biz class service to be lacking in anyway, but have not tried Aeroflot biz class...Edited: 18 January 2013, 19:33
Thank you so much for your replies. Much appreciated.
I'm not sure when it will be put in service and on what route, but Aeroflot recently took delivery of a 777-300. I'd imagine it will fly either the New York or the LAX route. This plane is state of the art, so I'd imagine they have full flat positions. That said, it's all guesswork this... basically just mentioning Aeroflot is extending its fleet with an American-built plane ;-)
I don't quite get why this news is supposed to be so important - Aeroflot has been using imported aircraft for decades. Specifically Boeing 777 is old like mammoth turd, Aeroflot used to have them back in 1998, then sold them to Vietnam after a few years.
I personally would pick any Airbus over any Boeing any time.Edited: 21 January 2013, 09:58
Tobias, Aeroflot has 16 77s and 22 787s on firm order. Aeroflot 777s are to start serving Bangkok July 1st. Next destination - probably Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy. Not JFK nor LAX in the forseeable future.
The way things are going I would pick a 777 over a 787 any day
Re: 777 over 787...heck, may not even have the option given groundings!
Speaking of airplanes, most passengers don't even know or care which model airplane they are on. It's about how it is configured inside that counts, which is what the airline ordered. It can be toilets made out of solid gold (less likely) or wall to wall torture devices aka economy seats (more likely).
