I'm quite sure I saw a Mahan 747-300 in full colors (tail+titles) at DXB on Friday night.
There are (at least) two B747-300 flying for Mahan with EK-reg.
On the weekend I saw only the white one again.
Can anyone from THR confirm that one of them has full colors now? Would be awesome!
(And I'm pretty sure too I didn't mistake it for Jade Cargo...)

Wow, so there she is! Got to get her in DXB next weekend!

The 747-422s are in full BlueSky colors.

Indeed ! Mahan Air is operating 2 ex-Air France B747-300 F-GETA & F-GETB. They are now EK-74713 & EK-74780.

Hi Konstantin

First I will say thank you very much for all the nice pictures that you share with us. DXB is very interesting for us - and also the other destination were you travel often. Thanks.

Mahan Air has the B743 since late Dec 2007 in full colors, first seen in JED (27dec07). See also this thread: Where Is This (Mahanair) B747-400 From? (by OHLHD Dec 30 2007 in Civil Aviation)

I hope that I can get this aircraft in THR next week.

Viele Grüsse
Martial

Just a quick question that comes to mind: given the various sanctions etc that apply to Iran now, surely the use of these aircraft by Iranian airlines would be regarded as illegal under US law? In this case, could the US act to impound/ground them?

In the case of the ex-UAL aircraft, are there likely repurcussions for the airline which leases these aircraft to Mahan Air?

the airline that leases them to Mahan is basically a front company for Mahan itself, There is no restrictions on leasing. The US cannot impond aircraft belonging to another country, and I believe even the current US sanctions are not in accordance with ICAO regulations concerning the provisioning of civilain aircraft to countries.

I flew on '80 from DXB to IKA a few days ago, it was a lovely flight, although I think the pilots are still learning on the job, in clear air during the descent we gradually pitched up to a deck angle even steeper than take off, I'd say 20 deg. Then the engine power came waaay up, climb power, until the nose came back down. I think she might have got away from them a little bit, not like, we're out of control, just a little out of trim, and power was applied to get the speed back. It was quite an interesting little episode in an otherwise pleasant flight. Cabin crew are proud of the 747s but say they're very hard work as Mahan are short of cabin crew and only roster 10 flight attendents on the 747 (and these are high capacity birds, almost all Y class and very tight seat pitch, probably 400 seats, and full every day). We had 13 cabin crew on our flight which was unusual apparently. I'm not sure where the 743s go, certainly there's the daylight round trip to DXB which goes to DXB T2, notable for it's flights to Baghdad, Kish, Laramie, Kandahar et al, on no-name airlines. And there's also a midnight rotation. But two round trips to DXB a day, that's only enough for one 747. The -400s go long haul to Bangkok and, I think, Singapore.

PS as an Iranian 747 aside, Saha, famous for their all-707 operation, are looking at getting a 747-100 from the air force for high density domestic runs. And I tell you, Iran could use it, I spent all of Friday trying to get on a flight from Mehrabad to Shiraz, number one on the Iranair standby list, no dice. And there's a lot of flights, some just five minutes apart, the problem wasn't lack of frequency, it was that every single one was sold out. And every single other destination as well - sold out. There's lots of Tu 154s, 727s, Fokker 100s, A300s (inc B2s) and Saha's 707s, but it isn't enough. If the US lifted their sanctions, they'd sell 150 787s overnight. (And the order would be Boeing not Airbus, Iranians love American technology and Iranair crews rate Boeing very highly.) Anyway look out for a Saha 747 later in 2008.



fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

Not to mention that their tech people have much more expertise working with Boeing equipment.
