Unfortunately for IR, they don't have much of a choice. There is a US ban on the export of new aircraft to Iran (including aircraft whose parts have a significant US element); they have been exploring the possibility of IL96s and have an outstanding order for A330s, but with Ahmedinejad in power and talking Iran into various sanctions, Iran Air will just have to soldier on with its 747s for a good while yet.

They will keep them as long as they can ... and as long as they are not "allowed" to buy new generation aircraft because of this stupid embargo.

The same could be said of their 727's, some of which were delivered in the 1960's  Wow!

It's a shame they've grounded all their SP's except for EP-IAD. They used to be a common sight at GOT, but nowadays I don't get to see them very often.  Sad

According to CH-Aviation, IR has only a fleet of 4 B727-286Adv. at the moment. EP-IRP/R/S & T. The first three were delivered in 1974 and the fourth in 1975.
