As the war in Ukraine grinds on and Russian carriers continue to face sanctions, it seems that the premium cabin experience is holding up just fine. Here’s an Aeroflot A350 business class trip report from an Aeroflot flight attendant.
Aeroflot A350 Business Class Trip Report From An Aeroflot Flight Attendant
I’ve long wanted to travel on this jet but Aeroflot has been suspended from SkyTeam and no longer flies to the United States or Europe. More importantly, I would not want to indirectly support the Russian regime by flying Aeroflot or stepping foot in Russia right now.
So that leaves me to watch and read the Aeroflot reports of others. Yesterday, an Aeroflot A350-900 business class review popped up in my Instagram feed from an Aeroflot flight attendant. She was on SU1703 from Vladivostok (VVO) to Moscow (SVO), a domestic flight in the Russian Federation of nearly nine hours.
Her short video showcases just about all aspects of the onboard product, including the seat, bedding, meals, IFE, lavatory, and other amenities onboard.

On the one hand, her video certainly seems like an advertisement for Aeroflot:
So today I get a dose of dopamine from flying my beloved Aeroflot on the brand new A350. I’m not trained to fly this plane, so this was the first time I had the opportunity to fly this incredible bird🧡
From the moment I boarded, I was already pleasantly impressed, because everything was so beautiful, big and comfortable. I almost started squealing with delight😂
Took up my window seat and got to enjoy the full range of treats from a private cabin, to a book and a movie with a lovely lunch ☕️
Now I understand why passengers love this plane so much, I could only hear about it))
I can say responsibly, this is the best comfortable plane in our company🥰
But I still appreciated the chance to understand a bit more about what it is like to fly Aeroflot today. Quite honestly, it looks great.
And it’s a helpful reminder that while Russian men are being blown up on a foolish adventure in Ukraine, most of Russian life proceeds as if nothing is out of the ordinary.
