April 28: Iraqi Airways has begun scheduled flights to the UK, the first since the invasion of Kuwait in 1990.

The airline operated the first domestic commercial scheduled service since the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime from Baghdad to Basra on June 4, 2006 with 100 passengers in a Boeing 727-247. The UK service was launched on April 24 with a twice-weekly flight from Baghdad to London Gatwick Airports using Boeing 737 ‘Classic’ airliners, of which the airline operates two 737-200s and one 737-300.

Can't agree with Paul. Text clearly says Baghdad to London Gatwick using 737-200's (pictured) or 737-300.

Baghdad - Gatwick on a 737-200 wouldn't mind being on one of those flights.
