To Cancel or Not: Aeorflot from Bejing to Rome
May 11, 2014 4:31 AM Subscribe
My brother and I will be flying from Beijing to Rome on the Russian airline Aeroflot. We've recently heard about Aeorflot's terrible safety rating from friends. Additionally, we will have a four hour layover in Moscow and we're a little worried because of the current Russia-Ukraine situation. Should we cancel our flight and book another on a more reputable airline?

Looking on the web results in mixed answers from "This airline is awful, the pilot flew the plane like an army craft" to "Nothing to worry about."
To cancel our flight would only return about $200 out of $650, plus booking one on a safer airline for $800, so we'd be looking at a total cost of around $1200.
Is it worth cancelling our flight due to our safety concerns? Has anyone here ever flown Aeorflot internationally?
