Again, nice mix. Must admit, I thought there'd be more A320s, but what the heck, that's a very nice order in anyone's money.

The A320 count seems low.
Note that those orders are new orders, there will probably be a lot of used market business to come still - they need for new short haul planes is much more immediate and much easier to satiate by employing the used market. The need for long haul planes is not quite as immediate, as the Iranian economy has to develop first after the years of sanctions and the network has to be grown organically - don't forget that with all the bilateral treaties involved, developing a long haul airline, especially one that focusses on connections, is very much depending on diplomatic effort as well as an economic one.
Hence the pretty off-looking widebody / narrowbody ratio.
