Company Update: The Boeing Company (NYSE:BA) – After Airbus, Iran edges toward historic Boeing deal

[Reuters] – Iranair is discussing a historic aircraft purchase with Boeing, potentially matching an order for over 100 jets from Airbus, but obstacles to both deals need to be resolved so that last year’s accord to lift sanctions can be honored, its chairman said. The Iranian flag carrier is also talking to Boeing about providing support for its aging fleet following the deal between Tehran and six major powers to ease economic sanctions in return for curbs on Iran’s nuclear activities. Iranair agreed in January to buy 118 jets worth $27 billion at list prices from Airbus. Read more on this. The Boeing Company (BA) , with a current value of $82.69B, started the session at $127.60.
