The new sanctions mean no US company will be able to do business with Iran Air or Tidewater, and if the companies hold any assets in the US, those will now be frozen.

Again, the US tries to throw its weight around while it fails to provide an adequate quality way of life for its citizens. This policy will only make things needlessly hard on Iranian citizens, many if not most of whom are against the Iranian government and just need to get on the darn plane. I do not see any impact on safety from this policy, just misery. The US needs to get a life and mind its own business for once

Your opinion appears to contain your opinion but few facts. In particular, do you have substantiation that the US failing to provide an adeqyate quality of life for its citzens.
Then take your stement that many if not most Iranian citizens are against the Iranian government.
Can you back that up with any factual data?
I guess we read differant news reports
|Quoting Amsterdam (Reply 4):|
Well the facts are:
+people in general don´t like to be tortured or killed for criticizing 'their' government.
+people in general don't like to be tortured and imprisoned for writing about love or music or basically everything what is not in line with what the islamic clerics allow.
+people in general like to have parties and dance and listen to the music they like (foreign music and many sorts of persian music are forbidden, so is dancing and having parties, even with the family.)
+people in general don't like corrupt governments (in this case extremely corrupt.)
+their is an extremely high rate of addicts in iran since the islamic rule started in 1979, and the amount of poor people have grown significantly since 1979; the economy is very weak considering the huge resources and potential of the country.
While on the other side of the persian gulf the little arab stated florish and dubai and emirates and qatar airlines and others become world players, the Iranians who have in potential so much more resources, universities, history, sort of products, in a country with snow mountains, where you can always ski to woods, to swamps and desserts.

Any thoughts on the possible impact on passenger safety resulting from the latest US sanctions imposed on Iran Air?
|Quoting bobnwa (Reply 5):|
or that a majority of Iranian citizens are against the Iran government.
|Quoting qantas747flyer (Reply 8):|
Interestingly, the CEO of Iran Air, Farhad Parvaresh has recently been quoted as dismissing the US sanctions and stated that "The airline's operations are completely within the framework of the aviation agreements and treaties that have been signed bilaterally and internationally".
