Iranian carrier, and there leased although I think other Iranian carriers are considering it, bad decision as Iranians dont get on Russian airplanes

When searching for THR-DXB one-way flights online - not the best place - the option to fly the T20 was always the cheapest.

Well, its either new Russian/Ukrainian airplanes or old American/European planes. I won't surprised if some more Tu204's find their way into Iran, maybe a couple of IL96's also. Mahan Air flies the A310 into destinations in India right now, maybe they'll switch over to one of these newer planes.
Are these Tu204's RB211 equipped, don't the sanctions prevent that?
A300B2/B4/6R, A313, A319/320/321, A333, A343, A388, 737-2/3/4/7/8/9, 747-3/4, 772/2E/2L/3, E170/190, F70, CR2/7, 146-3,

As you guys know most passengers dont know what type of plane their flying those that do refuse russians. I have seen ads in Iranians papers from travel agencies explicitly mentioning the plane is an Airbus or boeing, such is th epreception of russian aircraft regardless of age in Iran

I dont think they 204's have any issues preventing them flying into the UK so maybe we could see one at BHX !!!!!!

Do the sanctions cover leases?
