Do you ask this because it was converted by Bedek ?

That B747 was converted from pax configuration last October, and has since operated in an all white color scheme with Air Atlanta Icelandic titles, and without while operating for MK Airlines.

Yes, thats why I asked, I wonder if they would have painted it there had Saudia taken it fresh after conversion.

I guess SV would/could have refused if it was their own aircraft, which is not the case. Otherwise, they could have refused it just because it was converted in Israel...

So if this aircraft was to go to SV right after conversion it would have to fly somewhere else wearing an all white scheme or in baremetal just to get repainted in Saudia colours, even though the aircraft belongs to a second party and would be on lease operated by the second party itself.

Enough to make your head spin, isn't it? It could not have flown from Israel to Saudi directly, but it may have been painted in Israel.



Keep on truckin'...

With all due respect, you're just shit stirring.

The point of the matter is, the plane was leased to others before going to SV, so the whole "what if" scenario you go on about is moot. You're making a controversy of a non existant issue.

That was uncalled for Hijazzey, I was just curious to know how this situation would have been handled if the plane was meant to go to SV immediately, another possibility would have been it would have got basic Saudi livery applied in TLV without titles, logo and flag.

"Like the Saudi's care? The Royal Family is building a chain of hotels in Israel and they do covert dealings all the time"

Better than covert dealings is that all Muslim countries should establish ties with Israel atleast to encourage pilgrimage to the holy sites if nothing else, which I have heard is a preferred requirement according to Islam but is not emphasised by the mullahs for I dont know what reason, besides it would be better for Palestinans moral support to have Muslims from all over visting there all year round in the thousands.

Beautiful bird that SV 744.
