The "big deal" is Boeing must sell those 737 and 777 to Iran Air, or it will be only Airbus which will get the 500-plane-deal over the next ten years. They already sold some 115 planes last January.

Iran is a big country with a big aircraft market, which stayed closed for many years and it's now endly open. So Boeing is just getting its share of it.

No, but it's about aircraft and this is sensible stuff, even if it's about airliners.

$ 150 billion dollars can buy quite a few airliners. I wonder how much the Washington politicians and corporate elites will be getting back in the form of kick-backs now that they have sold the national security of the United States and Israel down the river. Feel sorry for those poor Persians in Iran.

If security is such an important issue, why sell ?
What about spare parts ?
Is it going to be the same stupid game of sanctions to cripple Iran's economy and jeopardize passenger safety ?
I hope its $10bn planes $10bn spare parts and $5bn intensive maintenance training in Iran.

The title is misleading as Iran Air has made an MOU - a Memorandum Of Understanding, that's why the article says "could/should"... Let's quote another article:

"Iran Air (IR, Tehran Mehrabad) says it has signed a Memorandum Of Understanding with Boeing (BOE, Chicago O'Hare) for the purchase of more than 100 narrow- and wide-body aircraft.

In a statement, the carrier said its tentative order involves B737 jets and B777-300ERs. The finalization of the contract is still subject to both US and Iranian government approvals. The Iranian government is trying to put pressure on the US government with this MOU, trying to set up a concrete business case to accelerate the removal of sanctions.

Though nuclear-related secondary sanctions were lifted in January this year, the US has, with few exceptions, continued to prohibit US citizens and firms from engaging in transactions or dealings with Iran or its government. Boeing itself was one of the few granted a licence in February to engage the Iranians albeit only to determine their fleet requirements.

Earlier this year, Iran Air signed concrete commitments with Airbus Industrie (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac) for 118 aircraft and with Avions de Transport Régional (Toulouse Blagnac) for up to forty turboprops. Despite early optimism, the finalization of these two agreements has also been bogged down in redtape given Washington's unwillingness to lift a domestic trade embargo on Iran.

Due to this unwillingness, Iran Air isn't able to finance any of the commitments for needed modern civil aircraft as European financial institutions fear difficulties with their US partners."

Hopefully not. However, when I think at the F-14 the Iranians kept on flying despite all sanctions and embargos...
