    I remember Iran Air was flying one B747SP for passenger flights to KUL & PEK and one B742F for cargo services. It seems to be both their B747s have been stored once they signed contract to get new fleet. But they are still operating the ageing A300s and A310s.

    Any sign of their new fleet? Have Iran air took delivery of brand new A321, A332, ATR72 ?

    Leahy: A322 Not Needed, "We Own This (MOM) Market"

    “Our A321 is our “Middle of the Market” aircraft, and at up to 240 seats, it is doing a fantastic job,” continued Leahy. He saw no reason to extend the aircraft to an A322. “At 240 seats, all 18 inches wide, I see no reason to change things,” Leahy said. “At 80% market share, we own this market.”
    True, but I am disappointed that we won't see what the next iteration in the A320 family will look like any time soon.

    Seems Airbus is willing and able to rest on their laurels and take profits. Good on them!

    I doubt Airbus needs A322 when there is an option to provide 240+ seater with widebody A332.

    EP-IFA has been flying the revenue flights since 17-Jan-2017. IR has placed this aircraft on domestic service. Very strange i was expecting it will fly to destinations like Dubai.

    The First A330-200 for Iran Air - https://flic.kr/p/RndBof

    It would've been nice if they put the Iran's flag in medium size next cockpit window.

    What route is it to be used on?

    Emirates considering adding narrowbody capacity

    Emirates (EK, Dubai Int'l) is considering narrowbody aircraft given their 'tighter cabins and fewer amenities' airline President Tim Clark has told CNN.

    In an interview with Richard Quest, Clark said three studies had been submitted to the carrier for consideration. As such, over the next eighteen months, a decision will be made on whether to add aircraft such as the A320 from Airbus Industrie or the B737 from Boeing, combining that with an order for smaller widebody jets, or continuing to buy widebody aircraft exclusively, he said.

    Coupled with Dubai World Central's greater terminal and gate capacity, the narrowbody jets could allow the carrier to develop thinner routes currently unsuited to its existing fleet of ninety-two A380-800s, ten B777-200(LR)s, ten B777-300s, and 128 B777-300(ER)s.

    The Dubai-based carrier has yet to make a decision on whether to order the A350 or B787 given it axed an order for seventy A350s back in June 2014. Among the types under consideration are the A350-900/-1000 and the B787-9/-10.

    "When the time is right we will decide," he said. "But so far, we are just biding our time to see which way it all pans out."

    Dreaming of a new 787 Boeing's newest Dreamliner aircraft, the 787-10, made its debut

    There ain't no party like a new-airplane party, which is just what happened Friday when Boeing introduced its newest commercial aircraft, the 787-10.

    The rollout, as these events are called, occurred at Boeing's factory in Charleston, South Carolina, which opened just over three years ago. President Donald Trump and South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster attended as thousands of the plant's employees greeted the aircraft.

    The 787-10 is the third version of Boeing's 787 Dreamliner, which first started flying passengers in 2011. Like its siblings, the aircraft is made of composite materials and characterized by high fuel efficiency, a blunter nose and sharply swept wings. But at 18-feet (5.5 meters) longer than the 787-9, it can carry 40 additional passengers in a typical configuration and 15 percent more cargo.

    In a statement Boeing said the 787-10 will make its first flight in the coming weeks, with deliveries starting next year. Nine airlines, including United Airlines, British Airways and launch customer Singapore Airlines, have placed orders for 149 aircraft.

    Though suppliers around world build the airliner's various parts, final assembly of the 787-10 will take place exclusively in Charleston. It will be the first of the company's commercial aircraft to be produced outside Boeing's historic home base of Seattle.

    Korean Air takes the 1st Boeing 787

    Korean Air took delivery of its first B787-9 Dreamliner aircraft during a ceremony at Boeing’s South Carolina assembly site on Friday, February 24.

    It is the first of ten Dreamliner’s the carrier has on order, with five scheduled to join the fleet this year and another five being added by 2019.

    “The 787 Dreamliner will be a key member of Korean Air’s fleet as we continue to introduce next-generation airplanes to our customers,” said Walter Cho, president of Korean Air.

    “The aircraft is fuel efficient, quiet, has lower operating costs and is spacious and very elegant. The cabin features are impressive and will ensure maximum comfort for Korean Air’s passengers.”

    After crew familiarisation services between Seoul’s Gimpo Airport and Jeju, the new aircraft will be deployed on long-haul international routes to Toronto, Madrid and Zurich this year.

    The aircraft will offer 269 seats in a three-class formation, with six seats in first, 18 in business and 245 economy seats.

    “Korean Air continues to demonstrate its leadership in the global commercial airline industry and we are confident that the market-leading efficiency and comfort of the 787-9 Dreamliner will build onto their long-term success for many years to come,” said Rick Anderson, vice president of Northeast Asia sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
