My flight from DFW to LGA flew the the southeast of Dallas Love Field. On the East side of the field was a 747. Does anyone know the carrier?

Someone told me it was some royalty from another country. It's been here all week. I'm down here on business for WN and it's right across from our training facility. I have a nice pic of it.

If i remember correctly i believe it is a Saudia royal plane that comes here every 6-9 months to have its interior re-done by Associated Air.

It is the Kingdom Holdings 747.

It should be the one that arrived there from BNA about two or three weeks ago.
It's a fairly common sight at DAL.

Hope this helps!

IT belongs to Prince Alwaleed who owns Kingdom Holdings. His firm is the biggest single shareholder in Citigroup, about 4 %. He invests in many western companies. He went to Menlo College in California and Syracuse University.

If memory correct, the Kingdom Holdings 747-400 had most of its original work to install the VIP interior done at DAL. The 744 was originally operated by Air China.
