As in the Soviet Union they were all equal - there were no rich and poor - transport could not be divided into classes, so this would be contrary to the ideology of a great country. However, this rule still were exceptions, namely, we are talking about air transport. "Aeroflot" at the time made sure to stay on board the aircraft as comfortable as possible for both the political elite and ordinary citizens. In the 1950s, we began to depart over the world, so one way or another Union had to accept international standards. But sometimes the aircraft "Aeroflot", which were intended for international flights have been used for domestic flights. Then each mere mortal could feel elite.
prepared for you a selection of rare images telling the story of the first class of Soviet aircraft. I think current business class - a pathetic parody of the luxury that was once. Note, no plastic utensils - only china and crystal! And the food - real delicacies from the New Year's table, not some semi-finished products out there that can not be taken into the mouth ... Oh, where are you, old days? Plunge into the past and ponostalgiruy with us.
In the first class could fly and ordinary passengers. As you can see, very much like a salon wagon ordinary trains. B>
On board were allowed to transport animals, and the lady with the dog - proof.
Comfortably on couches, you can read the works of Marx, crossword puzzles, or to kill time for board games.
It looks like the flight was so mild that many managed to sweet nap an hour or two. Note, none of the passengers are not buckled! B>
Lunch premium aboard Soviet ships - a real feast for all of the stomach. As you can see, the passenger is offered only to a balanced diet. B>
Finish the food on here such makeshift kitchens. Not every home has a time to be found! B>
In order to ensure the maximum comfort of its passengers, "Aeroflot" invented even beds in salons premium. Painfully it looks like an ordinary coupe Soviet train. B>

This is especially true comfort level of passengers during the flight, service and, most importantly, the quality of food supplied to the board.
