Iran - Boeing Deal "very Likely"

Fri Mar 25, 2016 6:32 pm

http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2016/03...n-says-positive-Boeing-deal-coming

I know that this topic has been discussed before but not at this stage. According to the president of Iran Civil Aviation Organization, Boeing is in discussion with Iran Air over approximately 100 aircraft, those being the 737 and the 77W.


What was amusing was the photo that one of the commenters posted in the link.

Hopefully they can sell some 747s too.

That would be "epic" for Boeing, since nobody in the USA is buying them, nowadays!

The 77W would look amazing in IR livery. Hope a deal like this goes through.

Or, more realistically (not to mention "hopefully" for shareholders) they can realize that this was likely their last chance to get significant orders for 748i, and thus bring them one stop closer to closing the line and using the property/resources for something more lucrative.
I myself, suspect a more prosaic motive... ~Thranduil

   Exactly! But hopefully with the orders, also comes an improved livery (IR was sure a classic back in the days!)


I am surprised there is no mention of 787s! Seems like they prefer 350s instead! Would be nice to see some 787s as well.

AMEN! Would love to see the longevity of the Jumbo-Jet! If I recall correctly, IR was one the first to fly the 747SP. Would it be awesome to see some 747-8i in an improved IR livery  - Speaking of the liveries, QR has one in their fleet and it looks great!

Good! That will put to rest all the doubts expressed in this forum whether Iran really needs this many modern aircraft, whether they can afford to pay for them, and so on.

Iran will need some new freighters, too. There Boeing has the edge with new builds in the B-767-300ERF, B-777-200LRF, and B-747-8F. But Airbus still offers the A-330-200F. Boeing also has BCF programs, the B-767, B-777, B-747-400, and now the B-737-800.

Iran could use about 20-40 new freighters to replace their B-747-100SF/-200Fs and the few B-707-320Cs they still fly. With their renewed oil drilling needs they will need large freighters.

How many planes is IR going to have (or better saying, need?) if this goes ahead? Didn't they just make a mega order from Airbus?

Looks like an overkill to me...

With IR big A380 order I don't see room for a big 747-8i order, cargo version more likely. Expect 787s 737s and 77W or 77X.

In the near future, however; used 767s would appear more likely until Congress officially unlocks the the doors.  talktothehand

I wouldn't be surprised if it were negotiated already in Obama's deal. Boeings are one of America's #1 exports after all.

The aircraft (A7-HHE) wears QR livery but actually it does belong to Qatar Amiri Flight.

Nope, I doubt anyone will bat an eyelid if they do order the 1960s design. More to do with the fact that there was a lot of posts amazed that they needed as many Airbus aircraft as they have signed the MOU for. Funny that...

If the US finally quits playing keep away with Iran on Boeing products, then the order would probably go to Mahan, and/or other airlines, not Iran Air.

Hey all,
I suspect that the bulk of a possible Boeing 100-jet order would be for 737NGs and MAXs. Most of these would be presumably -800s/-MAX8s but would they need the shorter field/hot and high performance of the -700/-MAX7 for domestic flights? Boeing would I am sure do a killer deal for NGs to help soak up the gap between current orders and the MAX.
Likewise, I think the bulk of a 777 order would be for -300ERs with Boeing happy to soak up the gap between the current series and X-series 777s. I can see an order possibly for a few -200LRs and freighters in the mix, with some specific rumoured routes (such as Sydney) requiring either the reduced capacity, longer range or hot and high performance of the -200LR compared to the -300ER. I can't really see the -8/-9 getting much love yet from Iran, being so far away from EIS.
I find it hard to believe that the Dreamliner would not get any orders. I suppose the Airbus orders covering A330ceos and neos plus the A350 would cover those segments of the market.
What intrigues me is the situation regarding freighters. With the lifting of sanctions, is there a large pent-up demand for imported 'Western' goods that can now be satiated? If so, does Iran need new large freighters? The lack of any A330F orders suggest that either (a) Iran doesn't need new freighters in the short term or (b) that Boeing will get orders for 747-8Fs and/or 777Fs. I would think that an order for 4 of either might be the way to go for Iran, with another couple on option. As much as I would love to see it, I think Airbus killed off any possibility of a 747-8 Intercontinental order with the arguably bigger than expected order awarded to it for the A380 to absorb any VLA demand in Iran.
Maybe, just maybe, an Iranian AF1 order may be tagged on to the commercial Boeing order ...
Thoughts?
Cheers,
Bunumuring.

You have to remember that the Airbus order was only for Iran Air. There are lots of other airlines in Iran, all of which need new aircraft for long and short haul.

Meraj Air, Mahan Air and Caspian Airlines are still under sanctions, the others are more regional and therefore an order for long-haul planes is very unlikely!

Except for Qeshm Air and Taban Airlines, we won't see other carriers buy anything bigger than A321s for now.

You're right but right now, Boeing is reluctant to sell to any Iranian airline because the government keeps threatening new sanctions, as well as forcing companies to jump through hoops on old ones. Boeing may have been cleared to sell aircraft to Iran but the process is far from friendly or easy.

I have my doubts that Iran Air will bother buying new Boeings. I don't think Iran wants its flag carrier at the mercy of the whims of US politicians. As long as the EU countries are falling over themselves to do business in Iran, IR will keep buying Airbus.

I'm sure Mahan and others would love to buy some Boeing products but it's not that big of a deal since there are lots of good used aircraft on the market...and for cheap. Wasn't it Richard Anderson who said he could get good, used 772's for about 10 million bucks each?

Boeing really has to make it clear to the politicians how many billions are potentially at stake. Money seems to be the only language that lawmakers understand.
