Many in our congress are getting in the way of Boeing selling jets to Iran.
First of all note that Airbus has already sold $27 billion worth of airplanes to them.
Iran will still purchase $19$ billion from Boeing if we get out of the way.. otherwise Airbus gets ALL of them.
Getting politics in the way just takes jobs and capital investment from the USA.

Additionally Iran has a large fleet of 747s that have been sitting on the ground without needed repairs for decades. Boeing has landed refurbishment contracts to bring their avionics and interior up to modern standards.

No matter what you think about Iran: money talks, walks, and keeps our country employed.

I, for one, have come to my limit of partisan intelligence (there is no such thing).

First Made-In-China Jetliner Makes Debut Commercial Flight
Tue, 06/28/2016 - 2:48pm by Paul Traynor, The Associated Press

The first regional jet produced in China's initiative to compete in the commercial aircraft market made its debut flight Tuesday carrying 70 passengers.

The ARJ21-700 jet is one of a series of initiatives launched by the ruling Communist Party to transform China from the world's low-cost factory into a creator of profitable technology in aviation, clean energy and other fields.

The plane operated by Chengdu Airlines took its passengers from the western city of Chengdu to Shanghai in two hours.

China is one of the biggest aviation markets but relies on foreign-made aircraft. Beijing wants to capture more of those sales. Its major airlines are state-owned, which gives the ruling party a captive pool of potential customers that can be ordered to buy Chinese-made aircraft.

The ARJ21 or Asian Regional Jet for the 21st Century is intended to make its state-owned manufacturer, Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China, a competitor to Bombardier Inc. of Canada and Brazil's Embraer SA.

"The first flight of the ARJ21 marks the beginning of commercial, or passenger, operations for the ARJ21 and signifies the first time a domestically made regional jet has been used by a Chinese airline," said the COMAC chairman, Jin Zhuanglong.

The ARJ21 initiative was launched in 2002. It was scheduled to deliver its first plane in 2007 but that was pushed back due to technical problems.

A full-size jetliner under development by another state-owned company, the C919, is aimed at competing with Boeing Co. and Airbus. After delays blamed on manufacturing problems, the C919 is due to fly this year and enter service in about 2019.

Boeing forecasts China's total demand for civilian jetliners over the next two decades at 5,580 planes worth a total of $780 billion.

House Passes Measure To Stop Sale Of Boeing Aircraft To Iran
by Richard Lardner, The Associated Press

A week before the one-year anniversary of the Iran nuclear deal, the Republican-led House approved measures aimed at blocking U.S. companies from selling commercial passenger aircraft to Tehran.

By voice vote Thursday, lawmakers passed two amendments directed at Chicago-based Boeing, which had offered Iranian airlines three models of new aircraft to replace the country's aging fleet.

The amendment was added to a financial services spending bill that the House cleared by vote of 239-185. The House must reconcile differences between its bill and the Senate's version. The Obama administration is certain to threaten to veto any legislation that undermines the nuclear agreement with Iran.

Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., the amendment's sponsor, said the aircraft could be used by Iran's Revolutionary Guard.
"To give these types of planes to the Iranian regime, which still is the world's largest state sponsor of terror, is to give them a product that can be used for a military purpose," Roskam said. The Boeing aircraft could be reconfigured to carry 100 ballistic missiles or 15,000 rocket-propelled grenades, according to Roskam.

The United States, Iran and other world powers reached the landmark nuclear agreement on July 14, 2015. The deal ended international economic sanctions against Tehran, allowing airline manufacturers to re-enter the market.

Rep. Jose Serrano, D-N.Y., opposed Roskam's measure, saying it was part of a broader Republican strategy to make the nuclear agreement and the Obama administration look bad.

Although Roskam is from Illinois, where Boeing is headquartered, the airplanes the commercial aviation giant proposed selling to Tehran are built in Washington state.
