My flight just developed a snag enroute to Khartoum and I am in Sana'a airport. While many passengers are complaining and trying to leave, I am trying to convince them to give me a Yemeni visa  . Anyways, on the tarmac is a Yemenia 747-SP. I did not know IY flies these. Anyone has any information on these? I also see a brand new 330 on the ground in smart Yemenia colors.

Saludos,
A.

Is it difficult to obtain a Yemeni visa? Most Gulf countries aside from Saudi Arabia regularly issue visas on arrival for most foreigners coming from the developed world...


Flying in the middle seat of coach is much better than not flying at all!

The 747SP is the President's Plane. The A330 is one of two that the airline flies for long haul services. It is actually a very nice product inside, especially the Business Cabin.

You shouldn't have a problem getting a Visa. You just need to pay the Visa fee before clearing border patrol check point.

For Spaniards is easy to get one visa to visit Yemen. Only 2 photos, the embassy file, flight printer and little explanation about cities and places to visit.

The most difficult country to get one Visa is Saudi Arabia: they ask for the color of your underpants at the moment of flight!!  sarcastic

The A330's are nice and shiny, but they lack PTV's in economy, something that's readily available on IY's competitors.

= Yes, I know all this. The problem is that in this trip I was traveling with ONLY my Liechtenstein passport ... the "problem" with this is that it is filled with Israeli stamps as my "relationship" is from there.

Anyways, happy to report that I managed to coax them to let me in. My seeming charm and an explanation that I was going to Israel to work on the cause of the Palestinians and a general 20 minute session bitching about the Saudis helped me win friends. Apparently being the "first time person" from Liechtenstein also helped my case.

Sana'a is truly fascinating and I am falling in love with it! Will try to fly some local airlines ... I don't think we have any TR's from here?

Saludos from Sana'a,
A.

Ahhh, yes. That is a touchy subject.
