So far it looks like an alright plane . Entertainment system is a bit older ,but I can live with that ,there is free slippers ,eye cover ,blanket and I'm waiting on headphones for entertainment . Its not very noisy , and the space on this Aeroflot flight is OK ,I can even stretch my legs (I'm about 1.80 cm tall ) Anyway .. I have been here 10 minutes .. So can not judge ,yet ....
First flight was from Vietnam to Russia . And I must say it went well . 10 hours , 2 meals ,3 cups of tea and a bathroom break every hour . And few pretty nice movies ! ( movies are very nice in the entertainment system , and new ) . Over all this flight went well . Flight attendants took care of passengers on average . I did not see anything extra - just very standard service with regular meals .I felt that meals were OK size , but could have been bigger or have some snack option between them . And info that there is tea at the back ,would have been nice , because I didn't knew that I can get drinks on the back all the time .But stumbled upon "drink party " accidentally when going to bathroom . OK service and no problems anywhere . Just average . By it does not mean bad .
As I need to wait so much ( Check in bags ,took about 1 hour ) , I might as well write an post about Aeroflot airlines .
I waited to drop my bags about an hour .And I actually cheated after 20 min and went to sky member club line and gave them my bag there and they didn't even question my intentions or asked for membership ,so I don't know what is it .And that was a fast way ( 1 hour ) . Some other people clearly realized what km doing and followed .
Then customs ,immigration and bag checking .And I was at gate .
I was in flight on time . In my back seat . Vietnamese man was sitting next to me and talking on the phone until the plane was in sky and cell coverage went out . Literally .
Then 14 hours wait in Moscow airport . That was NOT pleasant wait . Thank god they have unlimited internet use ( unlike Athens airport ) .
I found one place between terminal D and F and slept there on the carpet ( there is a little carpet covered area .)I walked trough all the area and this is the best I could find for sleeping .
And in about 3 am there was no one . except 2 girls sleeping a out 5 m away from me . I think they figured that its a good spot after seeing me sleeping there already .
And I actually cheated after 20 min and went to sky member club line
In the morning I had my flight to Athens .and the plane was .... Em... Different ..it had no entertainment system so I thought that I'm not getting food also ,but I was wrong . After 1 hour in 4 hour flight ,guys started to give food out .
And i was on all 3 seats ,so I spread out and slept with mg eye cover ( that I kept as souvenir from the previous plane ) and slippers ( also previous ) and got 2 blankets and 3d under my head .
And it was a lovely flight . And the staff - actually really nice and smiling . Above average !
Back in EUROPE !
and the plane was .... Em... Different
