I flew on one of their supposedly 4 727s last month. They appear on many domestic routes, including at least Tehran, Mashad, Shiraz, Rasht and Yazd. Once you goto Iran, have a look at http://asemanbooking.com/EN/ where you can find fairly reliable timetables including the equipment used. Note: Usually the equipment listed as Boeing is a 727, but they recently added 734s to their fleet, so there is a slight chance of not getting what you want.
Not mentioned so far: Boeing 747-300 - one still active with Mahan Air on deomstic routes, mostly between Tehran and Mashad. It's only loaded in the Mahan timetable for the coming two weeks or so from the date on which you are looking. Seems the use gets extended on and on, but apparently it is due for removal from the fleet soon.
Mahan Air also has 5 or 6 346s in their fleet now which are used on the long haul international network. Offers came up between from MUC to Iran or SE Asia for quite decent prices recently.
AIS also uses their Jetstreams in Germany on FMO-STR rotations, but quite pricey.
Does anyone know if the MD83 and 87 of DAT are used on scheduled routes or only charter?
