Cheap Flights to Russia

There seem to be some unusually cheap fares on flights to Russia this spring. According to a flight aggregator site called Fly.com (www.fly.com,) it has recently been possible to book a round trip from New York to Moscow for as little as $496 in April on Swiss (wwww.swiss.com), and to travel with Aeroflot (www.aeroflot.com) on a fare that is good into mid May for $598.
I checked some random dates in April, and was pleased to find a round trip on Aeroflot leaving April 9 and returning April 16 for only $609.50. That is a remarkably low price for a booking just a couple of weeks ahead. Of course, if you were to book a flight like this you would probably have to pay extra for an expedited Russian visa.
And remember, you don't need to be afraid to fly Aeroflot these days. My most recent experiences with this airline were very good--new planes, courteous staff, and most surprisingly for those of us who remember this airline in the old days, in-flight announcements in both English and Russian.
