Just saw a report on Sky News indicating that a Saudi jet had an attempted hijacking, on a flight from Sudan.

No further details yet...

Solnabo, I take your point but flying from Khartoum to Riyadh is always going to have an exotic edge to it you'll never find (I hope) on a suburban run like Phoenix to Long Beach or Manchester to Brussels.
