On my 3rd flight of the day.
So far done:
Beijing Peking to Tehran IKA, Mahan Air (Generic) A340-600
New York JFK to Tehran IKA, Iran Air 747-200*
Ahwaz to Tehran THR, Iran Air (Generic) A320
Dubai to Almaty, FlyDubai 737-800
I want to ideally explore all the controlled airports over the next 6ish hours. I can’t wait to fly some of these amazing routes!
*Interesting fact: This was a real Iran Air route, last operated in November 1979, where it had stopped due to USA’s sanctions on Iran’s aviation industry.
On November 8th 1979, a flight from Tehran to New York had a hostage onboard, and had to be diverted to Montreal. This was the last flight of this route.
