What? You mean its really busy? Well Iran Air only had four flights a week this summer (dont know what the winter schedule, the website isnt working properly) and half the time they use an A300. They have a similar capacity on the route as bmi who use an A321 daily. Operating an A300 daily on the route would be a very significant increase in capacity. Maybe make it less crowded. There is no great need for the larger aircraft for the European routes at the moment.

Into heathrow they only have 4 flights a week because of the fact there are no long term slots at heathrow. BMI, as well as BMED before BMED was brought from BA by BMI, have always flown A321's into tehran.

the period between the end of summer and december are not a very busy period for all airlines, but when december and christmas time comes around, the flights are hard to get. During summer and winter IR flights into and out of heathrow, the ones i've been on, didnt have one spare seat. there is a reason also why IR operate 742/1's into stockholm and some destinations in germany.

considering many iranians like taking their own airline, there should be more IRA flights from places like Heathrow and europe to Iran as there is a small amount of choice between direct flights compared to other places such as india

Iran Air has flown to LHR for long enough now that it should have been able to obtain the slots it needed.

Enlighten me.

Yes there may be some customer loyalty when the airline hasnt been completely ignored by customers already. But alas most people are flying to Iran on foreign airlines. One of the main reasons being infrequent flights.

Exactly. Iran needs more frequent flights to Europe and for this more narrowbody aircraft are required. It only has a couple of A320s flying so far and three B727s which wouldnt meet EU noise regulations anyway.

beside SPs, 707s are the olny planes that can fly to north or south america and since US has banned 707s to fly over its sky, Mahmud has to use Iran air sp to visit new york. 707s are too loud and thats one of the reasons for US to ban this plane.
as for Alpha Delta!? i dont know why they never use AA or AB
I know Alpha Charlie is under overhaul and hopefully it returns soon
anyways Americans never get to see our 707 they can dream about it :d
.........
btw i would give every thing to see EP_IAM or 747 air refueling tanker in a very close range and spend some times there :d

Kuwaiti plane makes emergency landing in Iran

[IMG]http://t2.************/images?q=tbn:IXxWprf2S_SK2M:http://www.museumofflight.org/files/imagecache/lightbox/KuwaitAir01.jpg[/IMG]

A Kuwaiti airplane has made an emergency landing at Imam Khomeini International Airport (IKIA) in the Iranian capital due to technical problems.

According to Iran's Aviation Organization, flight number 512 had to make the emergency landing 15 minutes after it took office on Tuesday.

“The Airbus 320 aircraft left the airport at 7:19 p.m. (15:49 GMT) and minutes later the pilot informed the control tower about a technical problem,” Iran's Aviation Organization spokesman, Reza Jafarzadeh, told Mehr news agency on Tuesday.

“Following the pilot's emergency landing request, the plane landed safely at Imam Khomeini airport at 7:36,” he added.

“The Kuwaiti plane took off again at 11:23 p.m. after having fixed the technical problem,” he concluded.

Imam Khomeini International Airport is located about 30 kilometers south of the Iranian capital, Tehran.

Iran asks Turkey for...joint airline

Iran proposed to Turkey on Tuesday that the two neighbours should conduct bilateral trade in their own currencies and also set up a joint airline as part of widening economic ties. Iran's state broadcaster IRIB quoted visiting Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan as saying Ankara would study the proposals, outlined by Iranian Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi.

"We have proposed to establish a joint airline ... as Iran has some limitations following the sanctions," Rahimi added. Erdogan, according to IRIB, said: "We will study Iran's proposals such as the establishment of a joint airline and using national currencies in our bilateral trade."

Worried Iran pilot asks passengers to pray

TEHRAN — A worried Iranian airline pilot asked passengers to start praying after his plane was hit by a technical glitch early on Thursday, highlighting once again the notorious record of Tehran's aircraft.

The Aseman Airlines Boeing plane had taken off from Tehran airport after a six-hour delay, but had to return following a technical fault, the ISNA news agency quoted a passenger as recounting.

"The plane took off at 0015 in the morning and had to land back in Tehran after 45 minutes," the passenger said.

"The pilot told the passengers 'the plane is facing a technical problem and has to return. So please pray.'"

Iran has been under years of international sanctions hampering its ability to buy modern planes from major manufacturers, such as Boeing and Airbus, or spare parts, and has suffered a number of air disasters over the past decade.

Its civil and military fleet is made up of ancient aircraft in very poor condition due to their age, and lack of maintenance.

In July it suffered one of its worst air disasters when a Caspian Airlines plane, a Russian Tupolev 154, crashed near Qazvin, northwest of Tehran, killing all 168 people on board.

A professional pilot would never want to panic his/her passengers regardless of country. Previous accidents have had the pilots talk into the mic to be recorded onto the CVR just before impact, but asking passengers to pray, I haven't heard of at all until today and just shows how unprofessional the pilot is.
