Iraqi Airways to Make $5 Billion Aircraft Purchase

Say what you will about whether it’s gotten better over in Iraq, but this is certainly a positive sign of some sort:  Iraq has agreed to purchase $5 billion worth of airplanes from Bombardier and Boeing in the coming years.  The smaller Bombardier planes will arrive next year, while the 40 Boeing aircraft will show up in 2015.  The airline hopes to launch flights to India, China and Europe with the new airplanes.
