Very comfortable leg space. Friendly crew who are always ready to help. Even provided those of us who have no scarf with one upon landing. Will not hesitate to fly Mahan Air again. Checking in was a breeze except on our return trip where there was a disruption to the internet.

The food is not good, but other than that, considering all obstacles that Iranian companies are recently facing because of the sanctions, the flight was nice, it went ok, the staff were polite. Don’t have anything to complain about. However I should mention that there is no in flight entertainment.

Sleep safely with Mahan. It was a great flight with the AIRBUS A320 At 5:35 am, it was done on time and without delay. The plane was new and new. Quiet and clean cabin environment. Good and excellent hosts. With a typical breakfast (butter, cheese, jam, bread, orange juice).

A pretty decent business class service for an airline like Mahan. Food and in-flight service was great. Ground service needed a little improvement since they didn't guide me how to get in the fast lane to immigration and the lounge. Also, they didn't give priority to Business class luggage. I had to wait long for my luggage at destination airport....
