Well, indeed it started a long time. But my point was about recent years. 767s were delivered long time ago.

It's possible, but is it relevant? Today's trend is fuell saving and Supersonic jet is pretty "hungry".

I know, bud... I have had a love-hate relationship with Supersonic travel: it cuts travel times so significantly, at the expense of tons of fuel needed to fly over Mach 1.

Love the 77W. BTw This is what I find strange. BEG-PEK via SVO always comes to comes to around $600US give or take. On the other hand their North American flights seem pricey. What could be the reason? Who is China so cheap from Russia with SU?

LAX flight always used to be cheap. Now the prices rose along with fuel and demand. I actually just bough LAX-SVO-LAX for March for $700 R/T. JFK went up because they are filling up 2 aircrafts daily. You have to remember that SU offers a great product nowadays compared to others (online non stop service from U.S. to Russia is Delta (will and Singapore from Houston)).

Asian flights are cheap because SU is looking for transfer PAX from Europe. They get people to fly because fares are cheap at first and than (remember they are coming out with some great products) people will be convinced that SU now is not what it used to be.

So I guess it is the demand. Btw 700 bucks R/T is a smoking deal for a NONSTOP flight.

Transaero is among the world’s 16 safest airlines


Russian Aviation » Tuesday January 15, 2013 17:21 MSK

The new rating of the world’s 60 safest airlines made by JACDEC (Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Center, Germany) has been published. JACDEC specializes on gathering information about accidents and aviation safety in general. The first such rating was made in 1973. Following the results of 2012 Transaero is placed 16th*in the world and 6th*– in Europe, the carrier’s press-service reports.

Transaero has come over many leading airlines. The specific feature of this rating is the fact that when several airlines have the same factors of safety the airline with the longest term of service is preferred», - the carrier noted.

Transaero was included in the JACDEC rating for the first time in 2010. Transaero was founded in 1991 and it has not experienced a single accident yet. The flight safety is the carrier’s top priority. The airline has a vast experience in this area. The airline has implemented an effective flight safety management system, the press-service noted.

«Transaero believes that the flight safety is not a subject to the competitive activity. The commitment to the highest level of flight safety unites all the Russian carriers», - the airline noted.

We remind you that Transaero was elected the best airline of Eastern Europe in 2012. It was awarded with World Airline Awards prize by Skytrax.*The company also won the prize in the Airline Market Leadership category of ATW Airline Industry Achievement Awards in 2012. “According to the international rating of tourist passenger traffic published by Airline Business in 2012, Transaero comes in sixth by the number of passengers transported to different resorts.

Aeroflot is among top-30 carriers of the world by the offered capacity


Russian Aviation » Tuesday January 15, 2013 14:01 MSK

Aeroflot – Russian Airlines is among top-30 carriers of the world by the offered capacity. Moreover, following the results of 2012 the Russian carrier has strengthened its positions in the top-30. This fact is confirmed by the international rating made by the Innovata Company – the global leader in the area of information products including the most complete data on schedules of the world air transport, Aeroflot’s press-service reports.

"The airlines have been assessed by the maximum passenger turnover, which is calculated by multiplying the number of offered seats by the flight distance. This indicator serves as the analogue of production capacity in aviation. According to the provided statistics, the Aeroflot’s weekly value of this indicator was 1.2 million seat-kilometers in 2012 (+20% as compared to 2011). Thus, Aeroflot has strengthened its position in the top-30 and reached the 27th*place (29th*place last year). The maximum passenger turnover reflects not only the current status of the carrier but also its potential – the traffic volume achieved under the optimal conditions", - the airline explained.

Commenting on the trends of 2012 reflected in the rating, the respected*САРА*aviation center noted that the global aviation alliances are increasing their capacities faster than the world industry. SkyTeam alliance has demonstrated the fastest growth.

Aeroflot is the only Russian airline in the top-30*carriers of the world by the offered capacity. The Russia’s leading airline is going to significantly expand and renew its fleet. Aeroflot intends to acquire Boeing 777 and 737, Airbus 320 and 321 aircraft in 2013. The carrier also plans to renew the fleets of some airlines forming part of Aeroflot Group, the airline stated.

Now that's really good news for Transaero indeed. Perhaps I will reconsider flying to Russia with either Transaero or Aeroflot... If only there is a nonstop from SFO since there is a sizable Russian immigrant population in the Bay Area.

Job well done indeed!
