I noticed on the CH-Aviation website that the Iraqi Airways CRJ900 is no longer listed as being stored. Does this mean that Kuwait (or was it Kuwait Airways) is no longer holding onto it as part of the dispute after the first Gulf War?

Kuwait Airways has never had a hold of it to begin with.

I believe the issue was settled recently.

Have the B737s Iraqi Airways purchased from AirTran been painted in their colours? Where do they fly them?

Well they were blocking delivery at least.

I don't see how that is possible since the CRJ-900 come out LONG after the first Gulf war.

So has Iraqi Airways never been able to operate its new CRJ-900? It's great to see Iraq taking some incredibly bold steps to mend relations with its neighbors and move forward. While I agree that the US invasion was never fully justified, this new Iraqi government certainly seems to be helping forge a broader sense of peace in the region.

It has been operated since delivery.

From the article:

Quote:
Kuwait Airways demanded $US1.2 billion ($1.83 billion) in reparations from Iraqi Airways for planes and equipment stolen during Saddam's 1990 invasion of the emirate.

The company used a Montreal court in August 2008 to stop 10 Bombardier CRJ900 aircraft ordered by Iraqi Airways from the Canadian company from being transferred, a decision that eventually prompted the settlement.

Does anyone know the delivery schedule for the remaining 9 CRJ900's ordered by Iraqi Airways?

Not yet. I was sitting in the Baghdad terminal four weeks ago waiting for my flight to Dubai, and I saw one cruise by. It still had all the AirTran paint, minus the "a" on the tail and Airtran on the fuselage. Seemed a bit strange for sure...lol

Not sure which routes they fly..

I wonder what is happening to the two 747s Iraqi has stored in Tozer, Tunisia (a 200 and a SP). They also had two 200s parked at THR. One of them is now with the Iranian Air Force.
