Don't these big Middle Eastern jets sometimes land and drop their VIP pax off at RST but then fly over to MSP where there's more room for "long term parking?" That could explain it. Or is it easier for them to just land at MSP and drive the rest of the way?

For what it's worth, it's my understanding that the Saudi royal family thinks particularly highly of the Mayo clinic and frequently has family members (it's a BIG family) there for treatment, diagnosis and checkups.
