    Apparently new development is going on at IKA airport as well! As I predicted before, I think they are planning to get Iranair back into the big airline market. Hence back to my previous concerns.... I know Charmahal doesn't agree but we need to have a few A380s and 747s!

    I were there last year. they are working on a second concourse. I assuming they will be connected and will still be one bigger Terminal 1.

    but as for big planes? nobody has bought a 747 for years. A380 is in big trouble. Emirates and Quantes are practically the only real operators that are doing this at scale.

    even if A380 was a good idea. it is a good idea for the world's largest Airlines (ala Emirates). it makes no sense for Iran Air to buy super jobmbo planes when it cant really land in any other place than in Tehran (even that is probably not reenforced properly).

    Iran is too poor to make such risky decisions. This is a massive capital investment. you begin small. (A320) or at most a regular wide body air craft. and then if that works out you expand.

    I live in the smallest metro in Texas. Our Airport has more flight per year than the entire country of Iran. so in short no it would be a big mistake for Iran air to super long haul planes.

    remember you want planes for connectivity? you don't want them for prestige (that was the 60s). you just need to connect to all the major regional hubs. if there is demand that is not being you can always expand later.

    Well, it wouldn't need to land in any other place in Iran than in Tehran if it's meant for international flights, would it?

    But I guess fair enough! I buy your arguments!

    trump toured a boeing plant in s. carolina today.he was in a very
    good mood:

    “We’re going to fight for every last American job,” said Mr. Trump, adding that his “focus” was on jobs.
    “God bless Boeing,” Mr. Trump said
    “What can look so beautiful at 30? An airplane,” he said, as the audience guffawed.


    seems like the boeing deal with iran is a sure thing.

    showtime is getting closer and closer for aiapc and saudi agents
    in congress and trump over the boeing deal with iran.
    it's done deal but they can squeal as much as they want.



    http://freebeacon.com/national-secur...l-iran-planes/

    The Trump administration's Treasury Department informed the Free Beacon on Monday that it would continue to grant licenses to companies such as Boeing so that they can pursue multi-billion dollar deals with Iran.

    This policy, started by the Obama administration as part of the nuclear deal with Iran, is opposed by many on Capitol Hill and runs counter to campaign trail promises by President Donald Trump to end such agreements.

    As a passenger, while enjoying relatively better safety functions, you'd be disappointed to find yourself in more cramped seats and much less leg room compared to Iran's old fleet.

    As a pilot, you'd fucking love it! I've done quite a bit of 3D simulation time with the new Airbus cockpit and it's definitely lovely (still prefer the Boeing instrument panels but that's just me).

    I second ur point on cramped space. but for now I just care about saftey. would refuse to fly inside iran otherwise.

    Tehran to Kish is only barely a 2 hours flight.
