I dont know why they dont opt for the Russian planes. Brand new Illyushin 96 planes are are like $40-50 million while Boeings equivalent is $250 million according to wikipedia.

Tupolevs which are medium range are also like 35 million while its sister aircrafts in boeing are $100+ million.

Instead of buying old junk from other airlines, they could have brought brand new cheaper planes from Russia.
