That can be a tight connection-the average delay is 20 minutes on this route, which when combined with the long lines means that you have to prepare to run to catch the flight.

In most cases you can check in for all flights at your originating point; call Aeroflot in India to confirm this.

I would certainly not recommend that tight connection. Unless something has dramatically changed in last 2 years, Aeroflot is always quite an unpredictable airline in terms of customer-friendliness (I had both good and very bad experience) and Sheremetyevo is a very hectic airport especially in summer. What you're trying to do is certainly possible but you're taking very large chances.

Alright.Thank you for your response.
Other combinations have minimum 9 hour transit.
I called up Aeroflot(delhi) the lady told me that check in for both flight is not possible(strange for me)then i mailed Aeroflot Russia and they told me that its possible.
Anyways i think i should go for 9 hour transit. At least i will be stress free.
Have anyone tried for 50 mins connection?

Coach or business?
What's the worst case scenario? If you miss it, is the next flight 9 hours later but same day?
Since both flights are operated by SU and I assume on the same PNR they will help but if you have to wait for another flight next day this may turn into smth more storyworthy. I have no clue how SU handles visas in irrops.
IMO go for it!

Yes next flight is 9 hour later but the same day.
Now i got 2 options either run and in case, if i miss then probably they will adjust me in the evening flight.
or
I can book evening flight with a 9 hour gap.
I just wanted to know if anyone ever experienced 50 mins transit!
Thank you

If you're ok with arriving 9 hours later, I would book the 50-minute connection and hope for the best. If you miss it, you get to spend 9 hrs in terminal F.

I certainly agree with this advice. 9 hours should be enough time to get Aeroflot to rebook you if that becmes necessary.
