'Aeroflot Soviet Airlines - speed, comfort and traditional Russian hospitality'.

x  x  mm

Decorated with a Tu-154 on take-off, this plastic shopping bag has both Russian and English text. Both sides show on top and bottom 'Soviet Airlines' and 'Aeroflot is at Your Service'. In the middle it says on one side 'Aeroflot Soviet Airlines' and on the other side in Russian 'Aeroflot is at Your Service', again. It's because in the Soviet Union, Aeroflot was not known as 'Soviet Airlines', it was simply Aeroflot. The bag has no label.
