Preferred carrier to Russia? Finnair to St. Petersburg.

When Condorde was in service, wasn't it expensive to fly on? Do they think they can get people to pay that much? Then again, people are paying over $10K for first class on some flights.

When the prez speaks you will buy them damn it. Great he can get rid of a plane load at a time instead of getting two while out walking.

No kidding, Is the old joke not that the Russians could build the worlds largest micro-chip? Far too many 'red' birds hitting the ground of late...

I saw their Tupolev SST - a copy of the Concorde - crash at Le Bourget airfield.

Didn't they already try making a supersonic jet during the Cold War?

Yes, and while Boeing was also working on an SST. The Russian had only one route (Alma Ata) because it was so loud.

These guys maintain their aircraft poorly...if you go, use another carrier !

I wish them success. It would be really cool if international flight times (North America to Europe, North America to Asia, Asia to Europe, etc) could be reduced to 6 hours or less. I understand the technical hurdles of designing, building and maintaining a SST, but you'd think by now, we'd have figured out how to do it cost effectively.

if Soviet Union didn't crash on 1991, the would have used Tu-204 instead of A321
