Iran threatens to impound non-complying airlines

Iran has recently warned that airlines will be banned from flying into its airspace, unless they use the name Persian Gulf on their flight monitors.

Iran has been insistent that the name of the Gulf that separates them from their southern neighbours should be referred to correctly as the Persian Gulf, calling it the gulf has been a source of annoyance for Iranian authorities, calling it the Arabian Gulf infuriates them!

Airlines not complying to this will be prevented from entering Iranian airspace.

And if such an offence was repeated, foreign airliners would be grounded and refused permission to leave Iran.

If it's any comfort to you, here in Israel we've been calling the area "The Persian Gulf" for as long as any one can remember. Does that mean I can drop by for a friendly visit?
