I saw a Saudi 757 in Madrid last week. I didn't know they had 757s in their fleet until then. When did they get them? Are they brand new? If not, from who did they get them? Are they flying scheduled services to Spain or was that a/c in MAD on a charter service?

I think they actually have four 757. Two are leased from Atlasjet and two are leased from someone else. They are wetleases to deal with Saudi Arabian Airlines' huge shortage of aircraft (part of which may be due to the fact that their route network is overextended). They've had them at least since last year. They only operate international routes save for the (not so) occasional JED-RUH or JED-DMM or RUH-DMM tag flight.
