More planes are coming. Boeing says Iraq has ordered another 30 of the smaller 737-800 model and 10 of its new 787. The first of the 737s will be delivered in the middle of next year.

Iraqi Transportation Ministry spokesman Karim al-Nouri says the plane’s arrival is an important step toward building a large and reliable fleet for the government-owned Iraqi Airways.

Iraqi Airways’ efforts to turn itself around have been hobbled by its ageing fleet and a long-running dispute with Kuwait.
