Rough landing but a pleasant flight overall.
This was a connecting flight for me since I was coming from Paris.
I arrived at the terminal for personal reasons (the door was just closing) and I had barely enough time to squeeze into the plane.
I was at the very back, the last seat with a little more room. During the takeoff, the plane made a sharp turn as if it was; a lot of people jumped and held their breath.
The light meal was basic but sufficient, and served a little after takeoff. The press was mostly in Russian but also in English.
For those who didn't speak Russian (which was not my situation) the flight crew might have seemed distant but they spoke a little English, I think.
We arrived in Minsk 5 minutes late, without problems, under a slightly cloudy sky.
I was able to recover the luggage that I'd left in Paris.
