I’m (very likely) going to Moscow in June for a short work trip, and for reasons that aren’t important here that trip will have to be in Coach. Let’s assume for the moment that I cannot use my own miles to fly Business class. My question is this:
If you had to fly New York – Moscow in Coach, what would your carrier of preference be? A United/Lufthansa combo is twice the price, so my preferred carrier is out of the question.
I’m leaning toward a connection on Delta (Delta to Paris, then onward on AF; or Delta/KLM to Amsterdam and onward on KLM) because I can at least buy up to Economy Comfort.
Aeroflot and Transaero are the cheapest, followed by the Delta options above.
Can someone buy up to Business or Premium Economy on Aeroflot using cash or miles?
I’m kinda flummoxed here…help?
