Iran seems to be an interesting country to visit.
Additional to this you can travel with classic a/c.

I have been planning the same as well. But now having a hard time to convince my partner out of a few concerns. How’s the pollution in Tehran, compared to Delhi. We are having a hard time adjusting to the winter smog fog here in north India. It’s been quite bad. Tehran looks smoggy too. About mobile data connection, how is it there? We have to be completely cut off?

Hopefully one day in the not so distant future the beautiful, historic country of Iran will be as easy to visit as a trip to Europe.

There was virtually no entertainment system though. Not even music (no headphone socket in the seat). Apart from their in-flight magazine, the only entertainment was on the overhead screen which was either showing a flight path (which was its original and I quite liked it actually) or "Just for Laughs" type of short program.

Nice TR, always great to read from such "exotic" places and airlines!"
According to Mahan Air, on "International (Business Class) flights" a personal dvd/mp3 player and Amenity Kits are offered... Maybe the route is too short for such service?

Amazing TR very informative, Iran is a real heaven for aviation geeks
Like Debonair wrote, I was wondering how long is a DEL-IKA flight for not providing individual IFE?
Also it's quite surprising that a such large airline (according to wikipedia 54 a/c) doesn't have its own lounge at its hub.
Thanks for sharing

Iran certainly looks like a wonderful country to visit.
