It would be good if this was a conversion of their existing order for 5 A310-300. If Iraqi still hold deposits then this would be an ideal situation to resolve the long standing order.  Smile

That's excellent news. I wonder where they will expand to with this order?

The OP says "second hand".

I dont see why not, although Im not sure they could afford 5 new A330-200 ATM.

Would be nice to see some A345's in their fleet painted in that green color paint job.

Aloha!

Hmm, I think at the moment, they'd have difficulty filling them on the routes they operate!

I like the livery, it's a classic!

I see A-310's in the future. It makes the most sense if you ask me. I do not think there is an overabundant need or want for most pax to go to Iraq except those war effort related.

Perhaps some of the soon to be ex-KU A310s/A300s? It would be somewhat ironic, because KU's older A310/A300s were to have before part of the IA fleet after the 1990 invasion.
