Re: Both KSA and Bahrain grants all commercial flights

Without getting into the politics of it all, I wonder if this is really driven by the desire to collect overflight fees, because revenue is revenue at this point, or to truly be diplomatic. Either way, it's quite the positive development for all involved - and it's about time.
