AI is operating between 5-7 daily flights to Jeddah to bring back Hajj pilgrims, mainly with 747s. The aircraft route BOM-JED (ferry), JED-xxx, and xxx-BOM (ferry).

I believe that the aircraft in question was VT-EGC, but I'm not certain. She was parked in the hangar at BOM when I landed about an hour ago.
