Iran Air Flight Scheduling/Ticketing...

Lo chaps,

Just a quick question really as I imagine someone may know the answer...

Next month I'll be travelling from NRT-PEK and to do so, I'd hoped to jump on a 747-SP from Iran Air, as they do (apparently) do that route on the day I need it. But after calling their office, a rather gormless lady picked up, told me that there WAS a flight, the flights were running, but it wasn't available for booking yet "cause it wasn't in the system"...

So basically, does anyone know when they start to allow ticket sales/anyone have any experience with Iran Air? or of the service IS actually running? Cause otherwise I'll just jump on ANA and be done with it 

Thanks,
Tom

Have you tried booking through Alternative Airlines? They are IR's 'official' sales point.

OK, the forum is cocking up and won't let me post a link, but type "Iran Air Alternate Airlines" into Google and you'll find the IR page with details on it.

After a lengthy chat with them... the flight was "filled to capacity" (yeah right!)
What he really meant, was "it's been cancelled"..I can't see many nutters travelling IR! 

Thanks for the help, nevertheless.

What a bizarre agent to use... labelling yourself as "alternate"! Dunno, maybe it is just me...

When I booked I used a main consolidator given to me by the Iran Air Sales Manager at the time. They were able to book domestic flights that no one else could at the time.

Quoting SirThomas (Reply 3):
the flight was "filled to capacity" (yeah right!)



Well, that's a BIG problem. The reservation at IR is not comparable to the western systems. I used IR in the past and it is quite chaotic. Many passengers are holding "OPEN" tickets and just show up minutes before departure. Also many passengers, e.g. flying from Hamburg/Germany, are holding tickets issued on other airports, like Cologne or even Stockholm. The pax figures are going up and down all the times and even with a confirmed ticket you need a reconfirmation...

I would also recommend to send an email to the station manager in Tokio: Iranair@Iranairjp.com or Ghaderi@iranair.com

Iran Air B747SP is an a/c you shouldn't miss!

What date exactly are you trying to fly on? Looking at all of IR's NRT-PEK flights in August, there are seats available on all of them. At least that's according to the GDS. They fly NRT-PEK every Thursday and the flight number is IR 801 departing at 2:55 PM.

If you can't get a ticket in advance, I'd say that your best bet is just showing up at their office in NRT. They may not have the rights to sell tickets on the just the NRT-PEK leg.
