Re: Airbus does not believe in continuing deliveries to Iran

Keep the thread on topic, and keep politics out of the thread to the extent possible. This is the Civil Aviation Forum, and the goal is to discuss civil aviation. Discussion on the US/Iranian relationship unrelated to aviation belongs in the Non Aviation Forum.

Re: Britains First Sharia Airline

Please keep this discussion to talking about the airline. Yes, Sharia is a component of the airline, but this forum isn't intended for a debate on Islamic law. Let's please just try to stick to the aviation elements of this discussion, since that's what most of us are here for!
