i would think capacity is needed more in domestic rather than international

also seems like EP-IAH is back into service after its overhaul

ehm sorry, but the date in the picture has to be wrong because all 747 and 320 are still banned from European airspace and also all overhauled 747 have no belly.

Incident: Khors A320 at Tehran on Aug 14th 2011, autopilot did not engage, fly by wire dropped into direct law

A Khors Air Airbus A320-200 on behalf of ATA Airlines, registration UR-CJD performing flight I3-5221 from Tehran Mehrabad to Kish (Iran), was in the initial climb when the crew attempted to engage the autopilot but received a master caution and the fly by wire degraded from normal to alternate law, a few seconds later the fly by wire degraded further to direct law. The crew returned to Mehrabad Airport for a safe landing.

Ukraine's Ministry of Transport reported that maintenance identified the "Spoiler and Elevator Computer" had failed.

Mahan Air flight from Bangkok arrived yesterday with a delay of 13 hours, today with a delay of 12 hours.
It seems that they stopped serving Phuket, because the flight today was cancelled, and Iran Air has stopped flying to Bangkok, too.

Some news about that:

http://articles.timesofindia.indiati...nge-passengers
http://www.hindustantimes.com/IOC-s-...e1-748246.aspx

I think this is a really big problem and If I were the CEO of Mahan, I would ask myself whether it's not better to stop flying to Thailand if no solution is found...

I flew on that BAE146 aircraft back in 2006 when it was registered D-AEWP. http://bit.ly/rsV6wW Interesting to see that it is going to be flown by MahanAir, I love the new paintscheme. How long has it been in Iran? Does anyone know why it has a Ukranian registration? I'm very happy to see that its still in use as I thought it had been scrapped. Does anyone know where i might find some recent photos of it?

Happy Flying,
ZK-NBA

Look above. Did you miss the pic where it is repainted? Ukraine is one of the third countries Iranian airlines use to circumvent US sanctions when buying aircraft from abroad.

U.S. Imposes Terrorism Sanctions on Iran’s Mahan Air


The U.S. imposed sanctions on Mahan Air, an Iranian commercial airline accused of “secretly ferrying operatives, weapons and funds” on behalf of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

Mahan Air is “yet another facet of the IRGC’s extensive infiltration of Iran’s commercial sector to facilitate its support for terrorism,” said Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David Cohen, in an e-mailed statement.

Under the designation, U.S. persons are prohibited from engaging in commercial or financial transactions with Mahan Air, and any assets it may hold under U.S. jurisdiction are frozen, the Treasury release said.

The Treasury said that the Tehran-based airline provides transportation, funds transfers and personnel travel services to the Qods Force, the foreign operations unit of the IRGC.

The U.S. Justice Department yesterday alleged that an Iranian member of the Qods Force directed and helped finance a plot to kill the Saudi ambassador to the United States.

“Following the revelation about the IRGC-QF’s use of the international financial system to fund its murder-for-hire plot, today’s action highlights further the undeniable risks of doing business with Iran,” said Cohen.

Mahan Air transported Qods Force personnel to Syria for military training as well as facilitating “covert travel” by suspected Qods Force officers, the Treasury statement said. Mahan Air crews also facilitated arms shipments and money transfers to evade trade restrictions, the statement said.

The Treasury said Mahan Air provides transportation to Hezbollah, the Shiite Muslim group in Lebanon, which the U.S. and Israel classify as a terrorist organization. In addition, the Treasury said, Mahan Air has omitted from cargo manifests “secret weapons shipments” for Hezbollah.
