Russia's civil aviation industry has lost most of it's captive markets with the end of the Cold War. But even before 1991, Russia was able to sell some of its cheaper and more robust (if less elegant) transports to Third World nations. This time around, Russia is offering it's IL-96-300, at a price about 30 percent less than the Boeing and Airbus offerings.
