Iraqi Airways Network

Does anybody konw about Iraqi Airways schedule and network while it was allowed to fly... It does exist still; they are members of Arab AirCarriers Organization.

Besides schedule and network, what about their IATA code?

a) you know there is an international services from BSB (if so, please, let me know airline, destination, frequency and a/c)
