From Uskowi on Iran:
Abdorreza Mousavi, director of Iranian Airlines Association, said today in Tehran that the domestic airliners do not have enough cash to pay for fuel and have been forced to cancel many flights. Mousavi said the state-run National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) has threatened to confiscate airplanes for past due payments. His answer: Come and get them!

We simply don’t have any money to pay for fuel,” Mousavi said. (Fars News Agency, 25 February)....MORE
