I lately flew on Azerbaijan Airways A320 from Dubai to Baku to hitch on a novel cargo flight of Silk Method IL-76:
Listed here are the photographs of my flight onboard Azerbaijan AIrlines (AZAL).
The A320 has 20 Enterprise Class and 110 Economic system Class seats. The leg room is greater than sufficient in Enterprise Class (Estimate 50″ pitch) however it doesn’t go totally flat.
A full “course by course” lunch is on the menu. There are 4 most important course decisions on this quick sector.
The airline serves domestically sourced wine from Azerbaijan.
I obtain a full tray of appetizers, nuts, salad, cheese and selection of bread.
The flight was solely about half full. Azerbaijan Airways is going through some powerful low-cost competitors on the UAE route, competing with FlyDubai, Air Arabia and so forth.
The meals in Economic system Class are spectacular. A full tray of meals with eggplant salad, beef pasta or hen with barley and a cake.
I discovered the portion of meals on AZAL is extra beneficiant than even most long-haul flights.
The clear climate provides away to overcast and windy climate over the Caspian Sea. The ocean is sort of uneven with numerous waves on our last strategy to Baku. It is called fairly a windy metropolis as it’s on the Caspian Sea.
After touchdown, I used to be picked up by my pal Samir from Silk Method Airways.
Azerbaijan Airways looks like an old-school authorities airline that also offers good catering and first rate full service on their flights. They’re boutique in dimension however have fairly a big sort of fleet together with A319, A320, B757, B767, B787 and A340-500. The airline hasn’t totally tapped into the nice location of Azerbaijan, by providing an excellent community between the East and West to transit by means of Baku. The continuous New York to Baku flight has been suspended.
Listed here are some Professionals and Cons I noticed from my flight expertise with them:
- Good meals and full service.
- Good infrastructure at Baku Airport.
- Not in an alliance and supply a restricted transit community by means of Baku.
- No Wi-Fi onboard.
In 2016, I flew on their A340-500 which is now the World’s Final Energetic A340-500 in service. Check out the journey report:
