Recent reports from Russian sources claiming an order of up to 100 Superjets seem to be, perhaps, wishful thinking.  A report from Iran today suggests things are more complicated.

While news that numerous Iranian airlines are negotiating deals is not a surprise, we note with interest the deals seem to be focused on pre-owned aircraft.  The Iranian Civil Aviation Organization seems to be highly influential.  Notice also the term “fiscal coordination” – a combination of words with distinct limitations.

This is followed by strange language about outdated maps and limited atmospheric conditions impacting pilots.

The bottom line looks like a handful (10) of aircraft set for the Iranian fleet.  The great hope for has to wait.
