Was it a B747-400 or a B747-300 or another classic version?Unless it was a B744,then it most likely is a Royal/Government flight.

It was a 747-300. She arrived at EWR from SEA and departed to JED latter that night.

If it was a B743 then it was surely a royal flight.

Isnt that company now in Chicago? But in anycase,just becuase the plane came from SEA doesnt mean it has any connection to Boeing.It could be someone getting treated in a hospital or something,doesnt necessarily have to be something naughty or shopping related!

Chicago is where all the boring political stuff happens...all the sexy stuff happpens in Washington  Smile A tour of the line is probably one the best sales pitch Airbus or Boeing have. I know if I had the money I'd walk away with at least 1......of each.... Big grin

But if we start narrowing it down, they were either visiting Boeing or are interested in Franchising Starbucks. Not a whole lot else in Seattle anyways unless the Sonics are planning on relocating to JED after the arena lease is over.

Well, that dude who is co-owner of the Four Seasons hotel with that other royal dude from Saudi Arabia for one thing... Could be a shareholder meeting.

If that was the case the 'dude' would have used his private Kingdom B747-400 not a SV or Royal Flight aircraft .
