Moscow’s Aeroexpress is a 35-45 minute train route, three of them, from all of Moscow’s airports.
At 1000 rubles, it’s twice the price of a regular ticket. What do you get and is it worth it? I suffered through a ride in Business to give you, my reader, the view from here.
It’s a slightly more comfortble ride, but not exactly a flat bed.
Unlimited water (still and sparkling), individually-wrapped wet wipes, and Russian newspapers.
Fewer people. But let’s be honest. The Aeroexpress is not the LIRR on a Friday night. There’s plenty of space in both classes of service.
The bottom line:
If you seek to avoid detection and love free water, you might like this option. Otherwise, the regular class of service is absolutely fine, is usually not overcrowded, and the traveling public tends to be polite and quiet. For the next 20 minutes, I’ll sip on my free water and enjoy my solitude.
Stay tuned for my review of Russian airlines…
