Iran seems to be having a rather severe case of buyer’s remorse when it comes to the purchase of new aircraft from the infidel agents of the “Great Satan,” Boeing. Accordingly, they’ve decided the appropriate course of action is to pay less than they agreed to back when the deal was first negotiated, much less.
Iranians cannot be trusted. They don’t honor their word; their promise isn’t worth the camel skin its inked into. Cash in advance is the only terms in which they can be trusted to hold up their end of the bargain and then you’d better still better check the serial numbers and the paper of every bill.
Iran has announced that they will pay half price for their new Boeing jets in a statement from their official IRNA news agency, citing “reductions in its purchasing options, whatever that means. A new world of negotiations has just opened up for all of us.
Those of you who would have gotten leather seats and four wheel drive in that new pickup of yours but opted for the lower cost alternative can take heart. Simply tell the dealer you’ve had a reduction in purchasing options and the price is now lower than what they told you it was initially.
According to the Sunday report, Asghar Fakhrieh Kashan, the Iranian Deputy Transport Minister says that despite an initial $16.8 billion deal with Boeing to purchase 80 passenger planes, “Regarding the style of our order and its options, the purchase contract for 80 Boeing aircraft is worth about 50 percent of the amount.”
He didn’t elaborate as to why the price was being modified, whether they really got stuck on the trade in originally or perhaps the finance company wanted more in the way of a down payment. Boeing hasn’t offered any information to clarify, perhaps they’re trying to figure out what their next move. Could they interest them in fleet of used Gulfstreams? Just until they get back on their feet, what with all those terrorist commitments and what have you, billions of dollars only go so far.
Iran had announced earlier this month that they had finalized the deal, the largest since they took over our embassy and held Americans hostage for 444 days. Now they’re trying the same thing with the deal that they did with Obama and Kerry on the nuke deal. They don’t realize, schmucks like Kerry and Obama couldn’t get or keep a job with Boeing. They may already have met and dealt with the real incompetent boobs during nuclear talks with the outgoing administration; we’ll soon find out.
