So "only" the financing is missing. We are almost done aren't we - not?
How realistic is a fast financing package including all banking permits let's say before Farnborough?
Airbus has been in the process of finishing the minor details and finilising the financing of their own deal with Iran since January so I won't be surprised if the Boeing order will take a similar length of time.
The deal, which is yet to be approved by both governments, includes 80 aircraft worth $17.58 billion to be sold directly by Boeing, including 34 wide-body jets: 15 each of the 777-300ER and 777-9 models and 4 of the 747-8, one of the people said.
It also includes the direct sale of 46 narrow-body jets: 40 of the upcoming 737 MAX model and 6 of the current 737NG model.
Under the same provisional deal, Boeing will arrange for IranAir to acquire a further 29 737NG aircraft through leases.
