  • Boeing says it signs historic sales agreement with Iran Air

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Boeing Co. said Tuesday it signed an agreement with Iran Air "expressing the airline's intent" to buy its aircraft, setting up the biggest business deal between the Islamic Republic and America since the 1979 U.S. Embassy takeover in Tehran.

    Already, one Iranian official has said the deal could involve 100 aircraft while another has suggested Iranian airlines may purchase airplanes worth $25 billion from Chicago-based Boeing, welcome news to workers on its massive assembly plants around Seattle.

    However, the long-standing enmity between the U.S. and Iran, as well as other sanctions, still could complicate any agreement — even after last year's nuclear deal. And even if the $25 billion deal is finalized, aircraft deals are often announced at list prices, meaning the actual price tag would likely be lower as airlines typically get steep discounts.

    Maybe we can sell them our leftover F-14's as well, eh? Goodness knows theirs probably need the spare parts.

        Point is, if they can't buy what they want, they will buy what they can. If that ends up Russian, that benefits Russian aviation in general, including military. I find it preferable that the Russians can't afford their own air craft.

        We just gave the Iranians billions. Isn't a good thing that some of it is being spent here?

            Exactly.

            But the Russians can sweeten such a deal. I think the Iranians will be doing a lot of shopping in Russia in the near future.

              So the Obama administration gives Iran money and they buy Boeing airliners.
              Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

                The F-14's were sent to the shredder so Iran could not possibly get them. We should watch and see who gets a big donation from Boeing now. Will it be Obama or Clinton?

                  You're not saying that we in the West get up to bribary and corruption, are you?

                  Wow - says me thinking of the various scandals the UK has gotten involved in.

                  Even in the hollowed {Froodian slip] halls of the White House and the Palace of Westminster, 'cash for questions' is very far from unknown.

                    Boeing’s political contributions are a matter of public record. There are no contributions to the current president or any current presidential candidate. See link for details. LINK
