I read an interesting article online about Iran Air , very much what could have been, but due to hostilities and politics it hasnt happened. They were once one of the worlds most profitable airlines and could have been another Emirates but because of sanctions the airline has declined .

Assuming you're not referring to summer 2021? If so that's very short notice for a new route.

I'll be interested to see how it does compared to Iraqi Airlines weekly service.

Yes we are talking of the route starting in just 2 weeks and 1 days time. My airport contact does says he's slightly dubious about both this and the Kuwait Airways services.

Are sure it wasn`t the Syrian as I don`t think a Iranair B747 has been in
I would agree with you mullion. I don't recall Iran Air operating into Manchester previously. The last Iranian carrier was, I believe, Mahan Air with an A310. As you say, I believe Syrian used the 74SP.

Don't put yourself down. I think a fair number of us probably are of the same era and get confused at times.

Great to see the EK17 come right over the top of my house this morning. Shame it's freight only, but it's a movement - and was preceded by easyJet that was out for a little spin around the circuit.

Have a good afternoon.

Nearest to Iran Air I can remember is the Imperial Iranian Air Force in the early 1970s unless my memory is playing up

With little other connections going that way at the moment I reckon they're on to a winner!
Pretty sure my hair barber will be using it.
