With sanctions backed by the U.N. Security Council looming, how is Iran Air going to be able to renew it's fleet? I know it is much needed.
This has likely been a sure order for Airbus, but with the break-down in talks over Iran's nuclear enrichment efforts, even France, Germany and Russia seem to stand firm should a trade embargo be put into place to stop this country from pursuing these efforts.
How many years of service are still left in this airline's fleet? Would Iran Air's fleet be able to harbor yet another political crisis that could go on for several years?

Call me crazy, but with all of these Neuclear "Negociations" with Russia, I wouldnt be suprised if they decided to go for the IL-96 or the TU-204... after all, the new president and "Papa" Putin seem to be getting along fine.

Back around 2000 or so I flew into Hamburg. I remember an Iran Air 747. It seemed small, and I wondered if it was a 747SP. Anyone know?
My first trip to Asia was on a UAL 747SP (SFO-HKG), and it had a galley down the right side of the plane making the second cabin (business class) only one sided with windows. Strange layout.
