BRU-SVO-LED, PEK-SVO-BRU. Short haul flights with A320. Lots of legroom, new planes. Long haul flight with new A330-300, legroom ok, but bad seats who got pretty painful after a while, good IFE with pretty good selection of movies. General comments : staff is good, but not too enthusiastic. Food average. You have to pay for alcoholic drinks on long haul flights (alcohol banned on some flights).

Moscow DME to Saint Petersburg. Check in was easy. Friendly, smiling cabin staff who could communicate at a basic level in English. They passed out candy before takeoff and a mid-flight snack of tea/coffee, apple juice, and some sort of wafer dessert - distributed newspapers as well. Seating was comfortable with plenty of room.

Seoul-Moscow-Warsaw return. Great fare (just 845USD roundtrip), great food onboard. Some delays, on both legs, but that didn't bother me much. Good news is that Moscow airport has been renewed, Wi-Fi and clean air (smoking allowed only in special cabins). They've banned alcohol on board so no more drunk passengers and fights for seats!

I just returned from a tradeshow in the Ukraine. Aeroflot offered the best fare and connections from Nice (via Moscow), so I took a chance - begrudgingly. Brand-new airbus aircraft, smiling cabin crew, leather seats and plenty of legroom. The crew came and greeted me to thank me for flying them - a nice touch. The food was good - even in Economy. Shrimp, smoked salmon, a lovely cod dish - very unexpected.

LED-SVO. During this one hour journey the crew managed to serve newspapers, drinks (with coffee/tea) plus a nice sandwich. New A320, everything went smoothly. Recommend on this busy route between 2 Russian main cities.

LHR-Moscow. On arrival asked if possible to have an exit row seat. Was advised of a €45 charge which was then waived which was a nice start. Aircraft then boarded one hour late, and one hour taxi/waiting to take off which made it 2 hrs delayed. Cabin crew efficient but poor command of English. Good leg room/comfort with food as expected on an Economy ticket although alcohol has to be paid for.

Istanbul-Moscow-Tokyo (Narita) Economy. Was not expecting much when I purchased the cheapest one way ticket I could find. Check-in at Istanbul, despite having a 20 mins wait, was friendly and easy. Flight to Moscow delayed 30 mins, but the cabin interior was clean and brand new, if a bit spartan (no inflight entertainment). Still, the seats were comfy and the flight attendants courteous. Moscow-Tokyo leg was great. The seats were comfortable, flight attendants friendly and everything went smoothly. My only real complaint is that the choices on the inflight entertainment on this leg were slim, but at least it was there.

Heathrow to Shanghai via Moscow. London-Moscow flight was pleasant on a modern plane with plenty of leg room and as a short haul flight works well. However from landing in Moscow to reaching Shanghai was awful. Transit through Moscow is embarrassing - one desk with rude and unpleasant staff. I advise you to run off your plane if you have a quick connection because I have no doubt that they don't co-ordinate transit passengers and the plane would leave without you, no effort made to fast-track those with short connections. One desk, one security machine. The plane from Moscow to Shanghai was late and outdated, with less legroom than the short haul flight from London, no entertainment and food that was awful. Unfriendly cabin crew. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong. Yes it is cheap, but there is a reason why it is cheap.

Delhi-Barcelona. I could not check-in online so called up the airlines to find my flight was re-scheduled. My connecting flight had been rescheduled so that my transit took 24 hrs and they wouldn't provide any sort of accommodation. Moscow airport contains narrow corridors with duty free shops, food must be paid with Russian money. There was free Internet but only in a few places with low wifi signal. Plane food was bland and mediocre. Average service.

Paris CDG to Beijing Capital via Moscow Shemereteyevo. All flights were on time with good service on board. Inflight entertainment includes several films in French and meals were good. We flew A319, 320 and 330, all in good condition.

Hong-Kong-Moscow and Moscow-Shanghai. I have to say out of all international airlines I've flown, Aeroflot is the most out of date with their entertainment technology. The seats, while old, were leather and soft and I slept for the first time on a flight. Hong-Kong to Moscow was 1.5 hrs late due to winter storms. Trip to Shanghai was on time and the plane almost empty so every passenger could occupy an entire row. The food was average and the staff do not smile but that's just the culture. I would fly with them again, one of the better airlines in the cheaper price bracket.

Aeroflot are not a bad airline though I do feel that for the most part it's fleet and it's service offerings are several years behind those of the competition. I flew Barcelona - Moscow and was swayed by the price. The first leg was in a fairly new airbus A319 with comfortable seats and a clean interior. The only thing of note was the general demeanour of the crew, who did nothing to make me feel welcome and were almost hostile in their dealing with the passengers. The pre-flight safety demonstration was multi-language and clear and I found most of the crew spoke English with no problem. In flight refreshments offered were a variety of fruit juices only. Alcoholic drinks are not available, though after almost pleading I did get a diet coke. The meal was among the worst I have tasted in my many years of flying. The second leg, Moscow-Shanghai, was a real eye opener. The Aeroflot website shows that this flight is operated using one of its newer A330 aircraft with in seat entertainment, but checking the entertainment listings I found that they been updated for 4 months. Not important of course but an indication of the haphazard approach to service. When I actually boarded I found that the flight is actually operated by (and has always been) by one of the airlines older Boeing 767 aircraft. Aeroflot Boeing 767's are much older than the rest of their fleet and come with little in the way of comfort or amenities. None of our seats or others around us would recline more than 2 or 3 cms. Walking up and down it was clear that no seats offered any noticeable ability to recline. They also had no adjustable headrests. All in all it was a very uncomfortable 11 hour flight. Added to the discomfort was the fact that there was no personal entertainment offered. The aircraft used the old system of large screens placed above the seats around every 10 rows. There were movies played - in Russian often with English subtitles, however the quality of the screens and the placement made it an unpleasant experience. Once again the refreshments and food were very disappointing. The omelette breakfast was the only edible thing I had, all other food was very poor. The staff on this second flight were more attentive than those previously. My return journey was merely a reverse of the outbound - equally as uncomfortable and equally poor food. The only significant difference was that I had coffee poured over me by one of the cabin crew who gave me a towel to dry my now soaking trousers but still failed to apologize or help in any other way, and finally they lost my luggage and once located failed to get it to me for almost a week.

Moscow-Volgograd round trip on new and clean 737 & Airbus 330 planes. Check-in and inflight service was excellent in spite of our very limited Russian skills. Good inflight meals at no charge. We had switched our overseas flight from Aeroflot to Delta because of poor Aeroflot reviews (should not have done that). The return Moscow-JFK Delta flight was 3 hrs late, causing many on the plane to miss connections at JFK, while two Aeroflot planes left on time and made their connections. SVO terminal was beautifully clean, modern, and bilingual, with efficient service, in stark contrast to the poor arrival image given by JFK.

Omsk-Moscow-St Petersburg. Small problems with check-in at Omsk and only received one boarding pass. Breakfast was good and the service leisurely for a 3 hrs plus flight. Plane was full and the flight left and landed on time. Was surprised that they had an English language paper on board. This is an improvement on previous internal flights. Moscow-St Petersburg is a short 80 min flight and received a quick and light second breakfast which was just adequate for this flight. Again the flight left and landed on time.

SVO-BKK in Business Class and was quite surprised. Flight attendants are 40+ ladies but cool and friendly, food was very good even though it was a low calorie pre-order meal. The plane was without individual IFE but we received portable movie players with a decent selection. Overall, on-board experience was great, while airport experience was so-so. Business lounge at Sheremetyevo airport was awful with plastic forks, almost no food available, no A/C. Aeroflot Business Class is a very good value for money.

New York-Moscow to Delhi return. On our way to Moscow we found the flight attendants to be rude and unhelpful (and of course not smiling). During the 7 hr layover we became concerned about the mere 1 hr layover on our return trip. It sounded good when we booked it but realizing that we would have to run through security and the length of the airport to get to our flight we didn't think it would be possible. We stopped to ask a woman behind a customer service desk and she said, "yes, not enough time" waved her hand at us and we were dismissed. Getting onto the plane to Delhi we realized our seats were not together. We once again tried to get an answer and was ignored. Very unhelpful and rude. For the return flight we had to change flights in the office in Delhi. Come to find out that there was another flight out of Moscow with a 3 hour layover. We switched to that flight. The office workers in Delhi were also cold and rude. As it turns out, by the time we landed from Delhi in Moscow and got to the terminal to fly out, that 1 hour layover flight had already left. We would have been stranded in Moscow for who know how long, because nobody would have acknowledged our existence, let alone get us onto a flight. Oh, and did I mention I had ordered veg. meals? On the way to Delhi I did receive delicious meals on the return flights, no such luck. I had bread.
