Well...I was thinking about posting something about this, but dismissed it as a huge longshot...but:
In a Boeing news release about Saudi Arabian Airlines' fleet renewal program, Boeing said this:
The Boeing 777-200ER is the world's longest-range airplane and seats up to 328 passengers in a three-class configuration. The 777-200ER model can fly passengers non-stop from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to almost anywhere in the world including destinations like Seattle, Dallas
, Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Sydney, Australia.
Notice how the two cities they mention in the United States are not the largest or the ones with the largest Arab populations, but both the present Boeing Headquarters and a city being considered. Think this means anything?!
