    Now, thats even more like it!
    Iran has invited U.S. plane manufacturer Boeing for talks on modernizing its fleet.

    The Airbus deal alone for 73 long-haul and 45 medium-haul aircraft is worth between $10 and $11 billion.
    The planes worth as much as $25 billion at list prices, are to be delivered over the next four years.

    Why Boeing Kept Its Iran Dealings Under the Radar?

    As the world cashes in on an open Iran, the U.S. risks being late to the game.



    "American trade with Iran is known to attract seething headlines in both countries. A simple form on McDonald’s website about franchise opportunities in Iran last year prompted warnings of an impending cultural invasion of the country in the Iranian right-wing media. Similarly, US companies risk the wrath of special interest groups devoted to inflicting reputational damage because of trade with Iran. Halliburton and Hewlett-Packard are prominent examples of companies that have been attacked in the American media for previous legal business relations with Iran."

    Thank God, Boeing is there to start a negotiation, at least to conduct a conversation.
    I mean I rather see boeing flying there instead if Airbus all the way.

    Boeing Co. has opened talks to sell airliners to Iran in what would be one of the highest-profile deals between a U.S. company and Tehran since the West lifted nuclear sanctions on the country in January.



    Boeing was granted a license by the U.S. in February to discuss the needs of Iran’s airlines. Neither Boeing nor Iran would identify what specific airplane models are under discussion, though an Iranian official said the country was eager to buy 737 single-aisle jets from the Chicago-based plane maker, as well as 777 long-range planes.

    Iran and its airlines nearing tentative deal to buy 100 Boeing planes

    Good news indeed and I hope it works, but this is kind of biased and speculative news, hard to oversee the fact imo, good news of course but Boeing may need to run the sale through an overseas subsidiary and use a currency other than $US in order to avoid running afoul of US laws.

    And of course have in mind that american lawmakers have warned Boeing not to do business there as the Iran deal remains a hot topic in the ongoing presidential election.

    Wow, I must have been the only that expressed serious doubt on why IranAir would possibly need A380.
    I raised this doubt in plenty of venues and now it seems IranAir executives have cold feet about A380!

    ^^From the above article I still haven't gotten why exactly they would be in doubt?!

    because A380 is hardly the right choice for big airlines. let alone iran a country that has basically zero airports designed for a super jumbo.

    Let see if those legislators in US manage to maintain a hard line against selling commercial aircraft to Iran or not.
    Both Airbus and Mitsubishi Aircraft procure many parts from the U.S.

    If Boeing is not allowed to sell, no other companies will be allowed either!

    Charmaha jan, apparently you are getting your wishes about smaller airplanes as well. Their talks are apparently getting serious:

    yeah, I heard about it. I have never ridden a Mitsubishi. I know they produce a whole lot of Helicopters.

    Probably it's cheaper than the equivalent versions of Boeing and Airbus and at the same time quite safe. However I'm sure even they have American parts which prohibits the sale to further notice.

    It is not the equivalent! AirBus and Boeing focus on 100+ planes.

    Embraer, Bombardier, Mitsubishi mainly go after sub 100 market.
    although recently the latter two are trying to create A320 competitors.
