I don't know if Iran Air has Airbus aircrafts but if it does,
that is not really a problem as the EU doesn't have
a commercial embargo against this country and thus
the company can easily pay spares and maintenance!
Moreover, the aircraft crashed was russian made so it's
probably not something linked to international politics
even if I totally disagree with the US embargo....By the
way, do you know that since 1979 and the fall of the
Iranian Emperor, they are still able to fly their Tomcats
and other US made military aircrafts ??? I'm just amazed
how they can without spares
Anyway, all my sympathy for the families and relatives!
