Flight Review: Aerosvit Ukraine Airlines from Bangkok to JFK

Two years ago, when I flew from Bangkok to JFK, I chose Aerosvit Ukraine Airlines.  I was really on a budget at that time, and I was looking for a very good deal on airfare.  I found a one way ticket to JFK from Bangkok on TripAdvisor with Aerosvit Airlines, and the price was about $350 one way.

Aerosvit Airline WAS an airline of Ukraine.  They filed a bankruptcy and ceased their operation in 2013.

I was not really sure if the airline was safe to fly.  But I thought I would be an good experience, since I was going to transfer in Kiev, Ukraine, and I know it is rare that I could be in Ukraine anyway.

I still can’t believe myself being in the airport two years ago, with all those current turmoil among Russia, Ukraine, Republic of Crimea and countries surrounding that area.

So going back to the review of the airline.  It was not bad.  From Bangkok to Kiev, and Kiev to JFK, both of the flights were on time.  They aircraft was an old Boeing 767 which I think they leased or bought second hand from another airline.

They even had an upgrade service at the check-in counter from coach class to business class for a fee of $400.

The only bad thing about the airline was cabin crew even do not smile at at all the entire flights. They looked like this.

But I must say that the service was transactional and I did not have no complaints for that airlines.

I hope they will be back to the service soon, so that I can flyer way cheaper.
