Both the plane and service aboard were amazing. The old airport Barataevka deserves special notice. It’s a real museum of the Soviet air-epoch, quite unique nowadays in Russia.
The plane Yak-42 appeared to be rather nice both inside and outside. The seats are comfortable, the armrests can be folded as you wish, ventilation and illumination are valid, the tables are also perfect. This flight was of keen interest for me, because I’ve not flown by Yak-42 for 10 years already.
We took off 10 minutes later than it was scheduled. But it’s not too important. Before take-off the “Vzlyot” (“Take-off”) candies and free printed media (“Komsomolka” (KP) and “Kommersant”) were served. The plane took off perfectly.
Later the breakfast was served: 2 pieces of fish, bacon & salami, tomato, processed cheese, bread-and-butter, bun, cake with jam, coffee or tea to be chosen. All the meals were fresh. It’s for the first time in my experience when such a rich breakfast is served at such a short flight. It’s especially appreciable in comparison with the other airlines on this route. For example, Utair on the same route served only a bun, 2 grams of salad and water or juice to be chosen.
So, Gazpromavia – you go!
