    It would be a good deal for the Iranian consumers, but not the Iranian industry.

    I thought they had internal competition due to other auto manufacturers in Iran (they do make Nissan as well).

    If majority of the parts are Iranian made, the prices shouldnt go up due to currency exchange. So it could be the manufacturers making excuses for price gouging.

    If they lobby, chances of outside brands doing well is slim. But if lets say Sollers, or VW or Ford opens a plant in iran, I imagine the authorities would allow it.

    Iran population is young and fairly well educated and around comprises of almost 80 mln souls. This is like 30 % extra for customs union. Cooperation on fields of industry and hi tech can and shall bring prosperity to both counties. Then deal seem to be with very good prospects for the future.

    your line does not seem to work, could you elaborate this? So you say that having joint production, localized in high percentage is bad for industry? Then what is good? buy ready or screw-driver assembly like what west usually offers?

    Pilots of bankrupt Transaero look for jobs in South-East Asia

    A recent promise of Aerflot’s CEO to give jobs to up to 6,000 people from Transaero, was rather a PR move to calm them, the president of the pilots’ trade union at Moscow Sheremetyevo airport says

    MOSCOW, October 5. /TASS/. Many pilots of Russia’s second biggest airline Transaero, which has gone bankrupt, are trying to find jobs at Chinese, Vietnamese and South Korean airlines, knowing that not all of them will be transferred to Aeroflot flagship carrier, the president of the pilots’ trade union at Moscow Sheremetyevo airport told TASS on Monday.

    "Many pilots of Transaero have started looking for jobs abroad, as not all of them believe they will be able to get jobs in Aeroflot," Igor Deldyuzhov said. "I personally know several pilots who are being transferred to an airline in South-East Asia. Some pilots are now looking into similar job offers," he added.

    Deldyuzhev was speaking about airlines of China, Vietnam and South Korea, where air transportation grows and salaries are high.

    He also said that a recent promise of Aerflot’s director general Vitaly Savelyev to give jobs to up to 6,000 people from Transaero, was rather a PR move to calm Transaero pilots.

    "The company will hardly be able to adopt so many people. Many pilots have loans. How can they steer aircraft in this condition? Of course, they had to be calmed this way or another," he continued.

    He also said that many of those who once quit Aeroflot for an actively developing Transaero in search for new opportunities and big salaries would hardly have chances to get back to Aeroflot. When in Transaero, they were taught to operate new aircraft - Boeing 777, Boeing 747, while Aeroflot did not give such opportunities at that time, and now an unspoken stance of Aeroflot is not to give jobs to them, Deldyuzhov said.

    The trade union leader said pilots were also quitting Aeroflot itself for companies of South-East Asia. He said the salaries of pilots-in-command in Aeroflot were about 300,000 roubles (about 5,000 dollars), while salaries in South-East Asian airlines were at least 12,000 dollars.

    He also said Turkish Airlines was demonstrating big interest in Russian pilots. "One month before this crisis of Transaero, they came to Moscow, rented an office and worked to win over [Russian specialists]. "They know about major job cuts in OrenAir in UtAir, and monitor the situation," the specialist added.

    I still can't quite grasp what the hell happened with Transaero. So Aeroflot decides to buy Transaero then they say they won't do it. Transaero's shares drop by 20% and later it drops by another 40%? Did they artificially bankrupt an entire company?

    Yeap. Transaero has already stated they are filing for bankruptcy. Aeroflot was pissed when Transaero filed for Bankruptcy prior to agreement from Aeroflot so they decided that they won't purchase 60% of shares or whatever.

    Apparently there was not enough competition.

    What is good is a competitive, good product for the domestic consumers/customers.
    Products from the West tend to be more competitive.
    It is reasonable to protect your own producers if they have potential, but it can backfire as it did in Iran's case.

    I dont see how it backfired. Iranians get jobs, more money through taxation and it helps the metallurgy companies. When you simply import, it doesnt provide any of those benefits besides maybe the company who imports and gets their share.

    Image damage (it is quite embarrassing that Iranian people boycott their domestic cars) and reduced purchasing power (Iranians have to spend more money on cars than they should have to).

    Iranians themselves have also a lot to understand, especially in economics.

    Here in the west, competition is also technically lacking as there are few producers of parts but many assembly companies and in the end, prices are still skyrocketing. A nissan you could buy a year ago costs roughly over a grand or more now, and it is assembled in Canada.

    I dont know too much about Iranian cars but one thing I do know is they use a lot of older German engines since they have rights since shah era. But when you essentially put an import over your own, will help decline jobs and eventually taxation thus less social benefits thus less money and that means more people who couldnt afford a car.  It all is a domino effect.  Eventually, Iranians would ask the question (and them blame the government): oh why did our industry fall apart? How did the plants closed? Oh why is this happening?  There needs to be some form of control. Inports wont do anyone good. If they can though get foreign companies to use domestic companies, metallurgy companies and build a parts plant in the country, and that would really help and would do more for Iran than not.

    As well, I am pretty certain that Iranian automakers are doing quite well economically and also started exporting to Iraq (there were plans to start exporting to Belarus too but dunno what happened with that).

    You beat me to the punch.

    This is big news as in the past, Russian industries, especially aerospace didn't get into western markets. This is a good change for sure.

    Important symbolic milestone for the SSJ.

    There's a good chance that a small Icelandic airline "Greenland Express" will order 5 x SSJ as well...

    Greenland Express is going to purchase 5 Sukhoi SuperJet 100 aircraft
