And this fact is a logical explanation, those who flew on the TU-154 have to remember that this is perfect in all respects except for the convenience of passengers, the aircraft range consists of 3 seats, and given the complexion of rugged men working for Polariscope, at least with the illusion of comfort, you can sit either in the aisle or by the window.
