I have been studying Saudi Arabian's timetable using the March 2008 OAG flight guide (doing a project on 772ER fleet utilisation) and need some help trying to figure out SV's timetable for a few of their flights:
(For all flights I have cross checked using Flightstats.com and Amadeus.net and have found no answers)
1. AHB B777 operations
SV1997 JED-AHB Daily 0730-0930 operated by B777
There is a flight going out to AHB on a daily frequency operated by B777 but no return flights or flights departing from AHB to any other destination using the B777. What happens to all these planes after they arrive in AHB?
These 777s must fly somewhere???
All other flights out of AHB are operated by A320s MD90s... everything but 777
2. flights to PEW operated by B777
SV796 JED-RUH-PEW Monday only 0725-0850/0930-1515 operated by B777
SV795 PEW-RUH Friday only 1700-1910 operated by B777
So here my question is does this flight go out to PEW on a Monday and not return until Friday?
On amadeus it shows no direct flights even on SV to PEW
Flightstats.com shows no return flight on a Monday and no outbound flight on a Friday
3. flights to ISB operated by B777
Mon: RUH-ISB SV724 0445-1030 ISB-RUH SV725 1230-1510
Tue: no flight
Wed: RUH-ISB SV724 0445-1030 ISB-JED SV797 1230-1605
Thu: JED-ISB SV726 0925-1600 ISB-RUH SV723 1800-2040
Fri: no outbound ISB-RUH SV725 1230-1510
Sat: RUH-ISB SV722 1015-1600 ISB-JED SV727 1800-2135
Sun: JED-ISB SV726 0925-1600 no return
On Friday there is no outbound flight but there is a return flight
On Sunday there is an outbound flight but no return, surely this aircraft doesn't stay in ISB from Sunday to the next Friday.
On all other days the flight pairing is fine.
