The Iranian government has sent a letter to the US asking to have nonstop flights between the two countries reinstated after 20 years of connections. The Iranian government (which is always levelheaded and reasonable) appears to suggest that the flights are necessary because of missing luggage. Says an Iranian aviation official:
"(Passengers) have repeatedly complained about wasting time and losing their baggage on connecting flights."
Yes, the Iranian government would like the flights re-started because they’re tired of having their luggage lost. That’s diplomacy.
