Rumor has it, the L15's have been sold to Sheldon Adelson (Venetian)in Las Vegas (currently operates LAS based 763 & BBJ)!!! The word is, the 2 L15's will also be based at LAS. Now that is an impressive fleet of private airplanes!

Well i wonder why the pull-out some aircrafts, they are used once or twice a month on average so they should be in an excellent condition.

As far as i know the current fleet consist of:-
1-744 (under the kingdom holding scheme)
2-747SP
1-743 (and it is the one and only VIP 747-300 series)
2-A342 (was holding the record for the longest flight until recently, the other one stored at Hamburg)
1-MD11
1-TriStar

Those are the Royal Family personal aircrafts, the government officials flies on a BBJ's and other Gulfstream's, i dont have a right figure about them, but i believe they are more than 4.

I was told that Airbus is trying to sell its first VIP'A380 to a Saudi client.

How do they use it, it is not VIP configuration, at least there should be one bedroom with full bath and dining room. This is what i saw in a 767 which used to be the private aircraft of Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Al Saud
