Kiev-New York Business Class with AeroSvit

22.11.2011 . amarchukov
This flight from Kiev to New York was operated by the largest Ukrainian airline company AeroSvit Airlines and took place in the spring of 2011.

The flight departed from Kievs Boryspil International Airport (if I recall correctly, from Terminal B) and arrived at JFK International Airport. The plane was a Boeing-767-300.

Before the Flight

Since I was flying business class, I was able to take advantage of AeroSvits business class-exclusive waiting hall. The hall was nice, not very large, with blue and orange upholstery. Everything looked crisp and clean.

Terminal B of Kyiv Borispol Airport

The general waiting area was a lot less comfy and much more crowded. Lots of people, little room.

We boarded by means of a ramp. The plane was parked right next to the building.

The Plane

AeroSvits Boeing-767 is anything but new, looking to be around 10-15 years old. The cabin was divided into two sections, with approximately 5 rows of seats in front dedicated to business class. The rest were economy class.
Business class seats are noticeably more comfortable than those in economy class. Every passenger gets lots of leg room, a footrest, a large folding table, and earphones.

Economy class is a lot more cramped and boring.

The airliner features the standard Boeing interior design which Id already got to experience on past flights, with blue upholstery and white, but yellowing, plastic paneling. The typical 90s interior.

Food

The most enjoyable thing about the flight was the food. During the 10-hour flight we were served hot food twice, and several times were offered various desserts and small snacks.

The choice of drinks was pretty large, both as far as soft drinks and alcoholic beverages. In business class, as expected, all of this was prepaid with no limit on how much you could order. All the food was served in glass and ceramic dishes and with metal silverware. The tables was covered with a table cloth and the napkins were cloth.

Entertainment

Other forms of entertainment on AeroSvits flights, even in business class, are not up to par. The plane lacks the latest in modern equipment and the selection of entertainment is limited: movies on the big screen, several music channels for your earphones and the airlines in-flight magazine.

Aside from the standard equipment, there were also individual video players with a selection of classic films.

The Flight

During the flight we got a particularly memorable view of Greenland -- a sea of mountains and snow, with no signs of human presence.

A few hours later, we came in sight of New York.

The flight is over. Now all that was left was a 2-hour wait in line at customs and wed finally be in the United States.

Excellent review, amarchukov! Just like you, I got a positive impression with Aerosvit Business Class. Note that you traveled in quite a cramped cabin. Very old style. On my flight from KIEV KBP to BANGKOK BKK, the cabin map and seats were different. More comfy. The F & B differed from the basic, industrialized airlines food, which your pictures illustrates fairly well. I paid about EUR 2,000, round trip, Prague PRG to Bangkok BKK, with a very short connection in KBP (less than 2 hours), both legs. Nice lounge in KBP (with live piano music!), and cosy Thai Airways lounge in Suvarnabhumi. What else?!
