“Russian aircraft experience”
One day we decided to try the newest Russian regional jet, which operated 3 hours flight from Sofia to Moscow. We are always for new experiences and this was the right case.
Sukhoi Superjet is relatively new and the majority of such aircraft are owned by Aeroflot. We actually like this airlines company, we use its both Business and Economy Classes (you can also check these reviews on the web site), so we did not doubt about the quality of new aircraft.
1. Airport time
As we travelled late evening, Sofia airport was absolutely free of people. The airport is not big itself and the route is not really popular, so our almost night flight was not crowded also.
We came right by the end of registration, quickly passed all the control procedures and went directly to our gate. Boarding started on time and we were immediately on our seats.
2. Flight time
Configuration of Sukhoi Superjet Economy Class is interesting, it is 2-3 in 15 rows, which is not a lot. For such distances, in our opinion, the aircraft is super! No many people, which usually make the lavatory occupied all the time in Economy Class. Fast service and friendly helpful Aeroflot stuff. Seats are nice, as it is really new, which is always pleasant.
2.1. Meal service
For that 3 hours flight we were offered a hot meal, which was pretty good. Not just some hot food to feed the passengers, it was a package of different items, where was even a vegetarian option. This package contained two types of bread, butter and jam, vegetable salad with mozzarella, hot meal consisting pork with crop and vegetable garnish and fruit bar for dessert. It was not only in a big variety, but also tasty enough. In our opinion, the meal was perfect for that distance flight.
The lavatory in Sukhoi was small, but new and clean enough for Economy Class lavatory checked by the end of the flight.
3. Overall impression
We liked the Aeroflot Sukhoi Superjet experience! It is absolutely worthy. This is the case, when you are satisfied with spent money and received service. We highly recommend everybody trying Aeroflot Sukhoi flight!
