I think Iran Air have ordered the A330-300 to replace their 747s including the SP version.

Here's a wild stab in the dark- either the A330/340 or the 767? Boy, what are my chances of being right on this one?

Gosh, LH Mark, you shouldn't really leap to conclusions like that. And, for a start, MEA hasn't flown the 747 for some time.
Biman is supposed to be interested in the 777, but whether it will go for it or not is not quite clear. They are supposed to be looking for more A310s and DC10s, but ultimately the 777 will find a place.
Syrianair - well, already flying 320s, so the 333 would appear to be an ideal replacement for its ageing 747SPs.
MEA - A330-200/500
