You'll have to break up the journey from San Francisco, CA Airport (SFO-San Francisco Intl.) to Moscow Airport (SVO-Sheremetyevo) because there are no direct services on this route. Air France, KLM and Alitalia offer the next best thing — a flight with just one stopover.
It's a long way between San Francisco and Moscow — 12 hours and 30 minutes at least. But your time on board doesn't have to be a drag. Be prepared and bring all the basics like a sweater and earplugs.
