Iran 747SP Sightseeing Flight At Cologne: Sep 5  
User currently offlineCedarjet From United Kingdom, joined May 1999, 8060 posts, RR: 54

Greetings. Iran Air are operating a special sightseeing charter from Cologne / Bonn on Sunday September 5 on one of their lovely old 747SPs. The fare is great: 45 mins in the air, 79 Euros for a middle seat, 149 Euros in Homa (J) Class. I've just booked up (economy window seat), with a very well-timed flight from Stansted in the morning on Germanwings, who will also take me home that evening. Could this be the best day out EVER? I'm sure at least some of you will book up. (Hey, an added thrill for Americans - how often would you normally get to fly on Iran Air?)

Book now: http://www.airevents.com I'll do another post closer to the date so if there are any other a.netters taking this unique flight (and I will be amazed if I'm the only one), we can hook up beforehand or something.

Sounds good! I hope it's okay for US citizen to take this flight without being considered aiding a axis of evil state.
Are all the flight crew Iranian? Are you sure they still have enough 747SP left to make this charter flight that day.?

As it is a flight departing and arriving in Cologne there is only an identity check but no trace in your passports. The crew wouldn't care if you are American, Israeli etc.
I will be there as well and know about some other Airliner.netters that they go as well.



nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Na and MEA-707, I look forward to meeting you. This is going to be a great day!

Warren747sp, with a username like that, I don't see how you have a choice. And since it's a domestic flight, your nationality is virtually irrelevant. You'l probably need some kind of photo ID to get on, but no special travel documents. Why not drop a line to www.airevents.de to make sure? I don't think Iran has a ban on US nationals visiting their country, so I'm sure they won't have a problem carrying a US national through some German airspace. And yes, the pilots and cabin crew are all Iranian.

Wow, I find this a great idea! I'd love to go but I can't on that day. I hope they'll repeat that sometime soon. Starting at 79 Euros it really is a fair price for a 45 min flight. I'll keep that website in mind for possible future trips.

@Warren: I am sure that you won't have any trouble at all going on that flight, after all you are not actually going to Iran. I do believe almost all the crew hired by Iran Air are Iranian. They might have some Japanese for the NRT flight, too, but for most part they are Iranian. As far as I know, the Iranians are welcoming people and will be happy to have you onboard. They are very interested in America and keen on meeting Americans as well. There was a great article on Airways magazine about Iran Air a few years back. I remember how the American reporter was overwhelmed by how friendly he was treated on his trip to Tehran...

Iran Air has 4 B747 SP left in their fleet from what I read.

All you guys have fun and enjoy the ride, that is a great unique opportunity.

Edit: Cedarjet, I think Warren was more refering to the embargo that is enforced by the US government, and rightly so if you ask me. I don't think we should do any business with the Mullah-regime there. Well, anyhow it is a fact that US citizens are not "allowed" to visit Iran or Cuba, but of course they can with an examption status from the Department of Treasury.
Since he is not visitng there anyway, this rule does not concern him.

For those of you who have never been on an SP, look forward to climb performance most others can only dream of, especially as this flight will have no cargo and probably minimal fuel!

There are no problems for US citizens flying Iran Air or flying to Iran. I am one and have flown the IR 747SP's three time so far. Great plane. I am sorry that I won't be in CGN for the flight.
Yes, the crew are entirely Iranian. Service is actually quite good, sans alcohol of course.

Oh boy. I don't know why, but I am SERIOUSLY excited about this trip. I've actually been on an SP once before, Mandarin / China Air Lines from Taipei to Sydney in June 1994 (always wondered if it was the same one that went out of control near San Francisco in the 80s). Anyway, the exotic nature of the airline and the unusual flight pattern (where are we going to fly to? how low?) is getting me wound up big time.

Second question: my new best friends, www.airevents.de, have a Tu154 positioning flight from Zweibrücken to Liège advertised. It looks like Zweibrücken is near Saarbrucken, is this correct? And if so, how could I get from London to Zweibrücken? Liège is easier to get FROM. Anyone know? Anyone else interested in the Tu154 flight? It's quite soon (Aug 26) and almost free (55 Euros!), it's getting to this very obscure part of Germany that's a problem. Anyone got any ideas?

I´ve never been to Zweibruecken and it is indeed located off the beaten track.

Zweibruecken is about 2 1/2 -3 hours with a train (less than 2 hours with car) from Frankfurt-airport. I found one connection for you, on the evening of the 25th. The train leaves FRA at 6:38 pm and reaches Zweibruecken at 9.55 pm with one train-change inbetween. There are other connections who are 1/2 hour faster but they require two changes. Price for the train is 29 Euro one way.

I might do the SP flight as well, not sure yet though.

@Cedarjet: Zweibrücken is not far from Saarbrücken. Check out German rails's website www.bahn.de and you will see that there is a train every hour that takes 36min and costs 5.70EUR. Alternatively, depending where you are coming from, you could also fly to HHN and hire a car there.

You know, I'm seriously pissed I can't be on that flight. A 74L has been kind of a lifetime dream - to think that I could fly on one for 79 EUR about 100 km from home, but I'm stuck in Honduras drives me nuts...


>>>I'd love to go but I can't on that day. I hope they'll repeat that sometime soon

Nope, no chance, PanAmerican. They say organising one flight was already rather complicated, plus there'd never be enough pax for two flights.
I guess our only chance is a change in dates, but that's rather slim too...

P.S.: Where are IR's 74L actually flying to?

I could not find anything reasonable out of AUS, or to GCN, but I did get on NW from DFW-FRA for $571 total. It can't take that long on the train to get to CGN. Best part, I am flying on several variants I have never been on before! Oh yeah and that SP. Gotta have it.
