From Hamburg to St. Petersburg with Rossiya Airlines

28.10.2011 г. AI-Russia
I travelled from Hamburg to St. Petersburg onboard Boeing 737 of Rossiya Airlines, flight No 254. The Hamburg airport appeared to be very nice (there are many shops in it and preflight formalities are rather short).

Our flight was announced and we quickly passed through the passport control

In 10 minutes our plane was ready for boarding.

We were not let in for about half an hour while the personnel were tiding up the cabin.



The plane was rather old (1985 model year). It seemed strange to get such an old plane for the international flight, though the next day the domestic flight from St. Petersburg to Moscow was served by the practically new Airbus.

Seats of Boeing 737-500 Rossiya Ailrlines

The seats are rather comfortable but the space between the seats is very narrow. My fellow traveler of 175 cm height hardly managed to fit his legs.

There were rusty marks on the ceiling and nothing was painted. The passenger emergency panel was as old as the one on TU-154.

During take-off and landing the plane was creaking and trembling.

Flight attendants:
There were 3 flight stewardesses and 1 steward onboard.
One of the stewardesses was rather good at work. But the chief flight attendant was always passing by with a sour face and looked like the shop assistant from a chip shop. Food: The beverages and food were served.

In 1 hour and a quarter the descending was announced.

Landing at Petersburg Pulkovo Airport

We landed in Pulkovo-2 airport in St. Petersburg.

In brief: the service is normal but the planes are awful!
