well worth a look look at the pictures on this link, not only have they swapped the engine, but also the under carriage, it now has 4 wheels on each bogie and itís seems they got around the scantions by fitting a RR Trent engine Muppets

Well worth ignoring that picture showing a RR power plant and double wheel bogies. It is of another aircraft type unless they also changed the hull by removing an over-wing emergency exit to LN-BKE.

yes. We are discussing the logistics of airplanes stuck in places and how sanctions, politics and customs can affect further ops. Hence my post.

How can this have happened ? The PPRuNe experts who posted above assured us the aircraft would be stuck in Iran forever.

Told You!
Realpolitik!
Decisions made on what is actually the the state of affairs , as opposed to moral principals!
I mentioned it in one of my earlier posts.
How it actually happened I do not know, but again I bet Mr Boeing leaned on Washington?
OR
It could be a clearcut case that just had to run the natural paper course in Washington.
After all it was a super simple case, as some experts here failed to appreciate.
Happy Diversions Everyone

Itís been sitting there for nearly 3 months.
The PPRuNe experts who posted above assured us it would be fixed and out of there in a week or so.

Just take the shutdown period out (plus the time needed to recover the delay accumulated during the shutdown) and it will be much better!

Sorry, I didn't realise the experts were quoting us "US Government Time", I thought we were discussing in terms of airline and passenger time - the time that doesn't stop counting even when politicians decide their personal prestige is more important than doing their jobs. That aircraft has been held up for 3 months because of US political and government incompetence and there's no other way to look at it.

I'm sure pilots will be strongly inclined mentally to add "EXCEPT IN IRAN" to any "LAND AT NEAREST SUITABLE AIRPORT" instructions they read in future. Thank you, politicians of the USA, for your contribution to flight safety over central Asia.
