Russia pushes for early delivery of B787s to Aeroflot

Russia's Transport Minister, Igor Levitin, stated he has requested Boeing bring forward deliveries of the B787 to Aeroflot from 2016 to 2014 (The Gulf Today, 16-Jul-2010). Aeroflot would like to have the aircraft operational before the start of the  2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, to handle an anticipated surge in traffic. Aeroflot has an order for 22 B787s.
