Whatever happened to the Iran Air order for 35 or so Tu (204-100/200) brand new aircrafts? Was the order ever finalized by the Government of Iran?

The boeing 747-400 are grounded in Tehran, I saw them last week at the imam airport with covers over their engines. So they will not be flying anywhere any time soon. I also still have the question of why they are no longer flying them to Thailand or Dubai?? I heard rumors about the US putting out a seize request since they were bought through a third dealer from the US. Not sure if that is the reason though?? Anyone know?!

Im sure Iran Air could lease one and fly it on the IKA-DAM-CCS route. The Syrians or Venezuelans wont seize it. It would be seized if they had to divert though. This is so unfair. These aircraft belong to Mahan Air. Seizing them is just theft by another name.

IKA-DAM-CCS route is currently operated by a340 of Conviasa for Iran Air.
They don't need to lease one 747.

yes from 23rd July Tupolevs 154 will be banned from Iranian Airspace. (With what type of aircraft will Iran Air Tours fly then???)

Anyway, very good that EP-IRR is under overhaul at IR hangar now.
Just look at the cabin. It needs some refurbishment, I think!

I dont think the a340 of Conviasa is flying that line. I saw it flying somewhere else. For some reason they stopped using it after doing so initially. Anyone know why, was it too low passengers???

SHIT!! Half the passengers in Iran fly on them! Whats going to happen now!?? This will cause virtual collapse of the industry! You might not like them but you will miss them when you cant book a flight for love or money.

People will realise it wasnt the Tupolevs that were unsafe but the entire industry when planes continue to crash. Still the government and media will still have that other flogging horse (US sanctions).

Maybe they will have to fly these 747s domestically.

you can check wikipedia: there is mentioned that their A340 is used for Caracas-Tehran route.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conviasa

I also saw on youtube a 340 of Conviasa at IKA.

You can see on this site that the particular 340 is no longer used on the Tehran flight. It is being using for other routes.

Well, i think the main reason is they are to old and danger.if you look at the very last plane crashes in Iran you can see that most of them were with the tupolevs. I hope with banning these aircratfs we can look forward into a better future in the Iranian Aviation.

Wrong! The crashes had little to do with the aircraft type. It was the airlines that flew them. Have you not noticed other types crashing too. Many of the aircraft flying in Iran are Tu154 so therefore also many of the crashes too. The airlines that flew them did so domestically and regionally and therefore were not required to maintain them properly to EU standards. Flying in Iran will continue to be dangerous as the problems in maintenance and enforcing regulations is not being addressed as far as I can see. The government prefers to do nothing about the lack of enforcing regulations and instead prefers to blame an aircraft type and US sanctions (which are only an indirect secondary factor).

I agree. I think many Iranian domestic airlines will buy MD-80 instead of TU-154.
I hate MDs and they are very unsafe. If the airlines maintain them very well, okay, but I don't think that Zagros/Caspian/Taban etc. really care about their aircrafts...
