Surviving At A Russian Airport

Whether you're learning Russian or not, this article can prove to be helpful, as you never know when you'll find yourself in an airport where the people speak Russian but not English. After all, even when facing a layover, language can prove to be a barrier to getting on your connecting flight. Here's to smooth traveling!

You made the passport control officers sound way too friendly!

I once spent a layover at Domededovo and I learned a few phrases but it would have been useful to know more.

I agree with the prior comment. Please include a transliteration.  This means that you write the words using the Latin alphabet sounding them out so that people who do not know the Cyrillic alphabet can pronounce the words.

Maybe you should write the transcription in your article? If people don't read in russian it will be difficult 4 'em 2 pronounce properly.
