Kiev & Aerosvit

Malev uses the airport lounge in Borispil. It is fairly nice but can get busy sometimes (if you're flying out of Kiev with Malev it should be okay but if your flight is operated by Aerosvit it will be very early in the morning with many departures around that time). There is pretty much no place to eat after security and passport control (sandwiches in the lounge only) so make sure you are not too hungry arriving to the airport. Malev's catering on BUD-KBP-BUD flights is a joke (the small portion actually makes you even hungrier). Aerosvit's catering is said to be better (never experienced it myself). Overall, Aerosvit get good remarks for its business class service. You can pre-assign seats on malev but Aerosvit will probably not be able to see your reservation and you won't be able to pre-assign seats (although it is possible if you book under VV).
BUD lounges are pretty much horrible...
Have a safe and enjoyable trip!^
