State-owned IranAir ordered 200 aircraft from Western companies after Tehran signed a nuclear pact with major world powers in 2015.
USA officials say Mr Pompeo's speech is the latest step in a communications offensive launched by the Trump administration that is meant to foster unrest in Iran, and help pressure its government to end its nuclear programme and support of militant groups.
In May, the United States pulled out of a 2015 deal between world powers and Tehran under which worldwide sanctions were lifted in return for curbs on its nuclear programme.
Officials have urged Iranian citizens to remain calm and to hold out through the rough times promised by Washington, noting that the country will weather the latest storm wrought by Trump and his apparently "regime change"-focused administration of pro-Israeli, pro-Saudi hawks".

Sanctions and diplomatic pressure could pile enough pressure on the regime that it comes to the negotiating table - something Trump has advocated for. In August and November Iran faces two new waves of sanctions that will shut off their access to United States banking and oil exports. It will also face crippling restrictions by US financial authorities on its ability to buy gold and other precious metals, be prevented from selling Iranian debt, and banned from trading industrial metals.
Iranians are hunkering down for the return of USA sanctions on Monday with a run on gold and hard currency as they scramble to protect their savings, and sporadic protests over the already troubled economy.
