Dear Aeroflot: YOU SUCK!

I knew that things weren’t all that good for gays and lesbians in Russia, but I didn’t know it was this bad.  In 2011, a gay male flight attendant started a GLBT organization for Aeroflot in response to the denigration of gays and lesbians in Russia, as well as at Aeroflot.

What did Aeroflot do in response?  They gave the man an ultimatum: Either get married to a woman, or lose your job.

What the frick, Aeroflot?

I know that I’m not in the Russian Federation, and honestly will probably never fly Aeroflot.  But I also know that Aeroflot is part of the SkyTeam Alliance.  Hey Delta, Air France/KLM?  Do you want to be associated with these people?  If you want to keep your business with the GLBT community in the United States and Europe, how about you dissolve your partnership with Aeroflot?  I know that I’m personally more apt to work with companies that support GLBT causes, and shun companies that either support or turn a blind eye to the abuse of minorities.

    Aeroflot is terrible. They have a bad reputation for safety which may not be deserved as the one flight I was on had a new Airbus. However, they through up a myriad of bureaucratic obstacles that made it impossible for us to obtain a refund on a 100% refundable ticket costing 4.000 Euros. I’m sorry I gave them my business and consider this airline to be a complete scam. Never again.

    I will NEVER fly them again. Flew thru Moscow 3 times on my way to Kyrgyz Republic. Each time we had an 11  hour lay over and each time these fucking theives stole all my presents from my luggage.  These people are cavemen. Would love to have cought them in the act. Never ever will those fools get my money again. I pay more to fly on a customer friendly airline. They deserve that little tyrant Putin they have.
