The Saudi Royal Family uses it I thought? I think they will stay around a while for that reason alone.
When I was 10, my dad worked for Saudia and we were on a 747SP from MAD-JED (replacement for a broken L10), and we were upgraded to first class. I was excited because first class on the 747-300 meant power foot rests. Boy was I disappointed in the 747SP - the first class chair was just like a La-Z-boy.

There are 3 Saudi SP's, all in Saudi Arabia colours I believe. Only one is operated by Saudi Arabian. It is in passenger configuration. Don't know what routes it is used on, if any. The other 2 SP's are private, one a private hospital and the other VIP config.
It is reasonable that the remaining Saudi Arabian pax SP will pass over to a VIP role soon.
I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.
