As I imagined, there was a little bit of tension in the air around the gate area. It was not your everyday boarding. Because I was departing for Tel Aviv, Israel.

Contrastingly, the cabin was almost empty and had a calmness. Aeroflot gave their 777-300s B/E Aerospace (recently acquired by Rockwell Collins known for their avionics products) Parallel Diamond seats which offer more privacy than the seats on their A330. They were especially nice since I could fly without a seatmate.

While taxiing towards the runway. I found the A330 I flew on from Narita "Pyotor Kapitsa" on the tarmac. Aeroflot Russian B777-300 SVO-TLV. The 696th flight in my lifetime.
