Quoting Curious (Reply 2): bad decision as Iranians dont get on Russian airplanes
Well, its either new Russian/Ukrainian airplanes or old American/European planes. I won't surprised if some more Tu204's find their way into Iran, maybe a couple of IL96's also. Mahan Air flies the A310 into destinations in India right now, maybe they'll switch over to one of these newer planes.
Are these Tu204's RB211 equipped, don't the sanctions prevent that?

As you guys know most passengers dont know what type of plane their flying those that do refuse russians. I have seen ads in Iranians papers from travel agencies explicitly mentioning the plane is an Airbus or boeing, such is th epreception of russian aircraft regardless of age in Iran
