Re: Aeroflot to acquire additional A350-900 and 777-300ER aircraft

Terrific for Boeing and SU. The 10 across in the 777 was fairly nice in SU spec and I am sure better money wise than the 8 across A330.

Plus with SU group picking up the TransAero slack plenty of places to deploy, especially with Russia trying to exponentially develop the Russian Far East.
