Rossiya to take over 5 Emirates 777-300ER’s
According to Wikipedia and several Russian newspapers ([URL]http://www.rusaviainsider.com/rossiya-to-lease-five-more-boeing-777s/[/URL]), Emirates are selling 5 Boeing 777-300ER’s to Rossiya (subsidiary of Aeroflot). They will arrive in early 2017.
As you wrote about, Rossiya kept the Transaero Imperial Class cabins on the planes taken over from Transaero. Maybe, they would also keep the Emirates First Class cabins on their new planes. If so, a review of Rossiya Business Class in old Emirates First Class seats would be very fun to read.
