I remember a story a while back of an Aeroflot pilot who let his son of some sit at the controls. Shortly after which the son accidently slammed 80 screaming people into a mountain.
Better than the SilkAir one in the 90's though where the captain was apparently having a tiff with the First.Officer (who happened to be his male lover) and DELIBERATELY plunged the plane into the ground. (killing all 100+ on board)
I hate to post a serious reply, but, I flew with Aeroflot from Frankfurt to NRT and return and I cannot say enough good things about them!
Service was amazing.
I had a very, very tight connection in Moscow (under an hour) and the plane was slightly late landing. This is in mid January. It was -20C in Moscow. They brought a car out to the plane and drove me to my Japan flight. I was not flying business class... I had the cheapest ticket possible!
My only complaint would be that the flight attendants speak very little other than Russian.
The last time I flew them there was a guy wandering up and down the aisle with an accordion. His wife was following with a tin cup. She had a black eye...
The woman beside me had a piglet in her bag. She said "You pretty boy..you no tell person or you no be pretty no more"
