NORWEGIAN AIRLINE AIRCRAFT STUCK IN IRAN AWAITING PARTS

VoA on 5th January reported that Norwegian Airline said one of its Boeing 737 has been stuck in Iran for 3 weeks after an unscheduled landing because of engine problems, as US sanctions reportedly create headaches for the airline and passengers.  While passengers were able to fly on to Oslo the following day on another aircraft, the Boeing 737 Max has been stuck on Iranian soil where the airline’s mechanics are trying to repair it.  The repair work has reportedly encountered problems because international sanctions bar the airline from sending spare parts to Iran.
