Thank you GE and Boeing.
The head of Iran's national airline has accused US firms Boeing and General Electric of going beyond sanctions imposed against Tehran by Washington and withholding parts crucial to passenger safety."When sanctions were imposed on the airlines, parts related to flight safety were excluded. But both GE and Boeing are not selling us these parts," Iran Air's director Saeed Hesami was quoted as saying in Monday's Jomhuri Islami newspaper.The official, writing in an open letter to Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Transport Minister Mohammad Rahmati, complained that five of Iran Air's Airbus A300-310's were now grounded as a result of the US firms' "violation of international treaties."
Somehow, I just don't care if Iran's airline industry get's grounded. Let'em ride a camel.
