    No Iranian airlines serving Syria?

        Oha! You don't really fear that you become arrested for only having mentioned the word 'Iran'? Well. You know that I only refer to this aircraft with the name 'Obama's 747', don't you. Which is the truth. This is President Obama's 747 during his visit in Berlin. Sadly, I wasn't there.

        And since a few weeks I also have words in my mind which I could possibly arrested for if I tried to arrive on an US American airport. But I don't want to hide these words from you.

        What would ever happen if a dictator were the most important man in the White House?
        Some people say he'd order the killing of a military leader.

        He can't really be serious, or is he?!

        PS: Only because I know the Lufthansa as a quite brilliant service provider. Taken from en wikipedia. See it as a favor, really.
        Damascus International Airport (ICAO: OSDI) currently is served by four (4) airlines. That does not include 1 Iranian airline, afaik. Also, no US American destination, no German destination. Do we need more?

        For Syria, the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs has published a travel warning. That usually does not have to contain that no German airport serves Syria.
        But in case of Damascus that's really the case: no German airline, and without commercial flights to Germany. Period.
        The German long haul is alive, since more than 60 years.
        The Gold Member in the 747 club, 50 years since the first LH 747.
        And constantly advanced, 744 and 748 /w upper and lower EICAS.
        This is Lohausen International airport speaking, echo delta delta lima.
