The country's leadership also is considering the acquisition of 100 aircraft of the American company Boeing.
Previously imposed U.S. trade sanctions against Iran remain in force, however, the Boeing Corporation can apply for a special exception to the rule. At the same time the representative of the American aviation concern stated that until a decision on the sale of aircraft to Iran will have to overcome many stages, reports the BBC.
I don't believe this for a millisecond. There is ZERO chance that Khomeini would allow Rouhani to place an order with Boeing, even if he wanted to. The US is simply untrustworthy and its political elite are still rabid Iran-haters looking for any opportunity to undermine her. More likely, Iran is simply playing the game of pretending to be flexible and not ruling Uh'Murican companies out of the running, but the statement "overcome many stages" is likely diplomat-speak for "not a fucking chance Yankee swine pig-dog"....
Airbus will pickup all long and medium haul passenger jets, while i expect Russia will likely sell at least some SSJ100 for short-haul domestic routes, more if they include local assembly or licensed production.
