I'll have several hours at SVO

Hi all,

I am traveling on Sky Team JFK-SVO-GYD and back. My first layover is 1 hour. It is 3.5 on the way back.

Will I have a connection problem on the way in?

How shall I best fill the time on the way back?

Thank you for any ideas!

Lounge access is "meh" but at least free drinks and some eats. Terminal has free wifi. Lots of overpriced Duty Free shopping. TGI Friday's and some Russian eating places are crazy expensive but plenty good for a meal before getting back on the long flight to JFK. There's not a lot of super interesting plane watching at SVO if you are into that since most all of it is SU and some rather well known ST carriers. DME has a lot more to offer in that area. 3.5 hours is not really that long. You'll be comfortably entertained before you need to board the flight. 3.5 hours is actually a nice, comfy SVO layover.
