Los Angeles is a very popular locale for Middle Eastern royals with many owning second homes localy.
Visits by VIP aircraft are quite common and picks up tempo during summer months when many come to enjoy the relative 'cooler' temperatures compared to home, and to do lots of shopping, entertaining, and recreation activities.
