so is it fair to say that Tuesday's announcement re: JED was in fact nothing new? Those flights have all been operating from the terminal for more than a month, I believe

I would have to agree with you. Sadly in the Middle East everything is politicized. The replacement of the brown color (of Qatar’s flag color) looks ridiculously cheap and nowhere near as impressive as the real past livery. If only they left politics out of it and provided a real retro aircraft people can associate with and remember fondly.

But on the issue of a retro 787 for Gulf Air I would have been against it for many reasons. Most important of which that Gulf Air is a shadow of its own self and needs to Foocus on its new identity, sole owner (Kingdom of Bahrain) and not dwell on the past.


jeez you guys are a tough crowd. How come no other airline gets comments like this when they do a retro livery? Biased much?

I'm gonna guess that's because when other airlines do a retro livery, they simply do a retro livery. The criticism here seems to be towards modifying a retro, which Gulf Air did do. And believe me, there are plenty of colorful comments about everything around here. :)
There will come a time when you believe everything is finished - that will be the beginning.

Interesting - thank you for this! I flew SV via JED for the first time a few months ago and loved SV but was not impressed with JED (the al Fursan lounge in particular ... most eager to see the new one).

Maybe because other airlines don't try changing history with their retro liveries?

No bias at all. The livery is not the same as the original, so it's not exactly a retro livery. Forget why it was done, it is fact that the colour is gone and livery not the same.

The Cairo A380 flight is just a one-off service.

Really? My bad then. The way they were writing about it seemed like it was a regular. That said, I do wonder if DXB-CAI could eventually see scheduled A380s.

To answer my earlier question, looks like new JED airport is only fully operational at the end of this year.

If I were them I’d start studying that Performance with a flydubai MAX codeshare and work upwards from there.

I highly doubt this , EK dropped Alexandria and focusing on CAI , although they are facing difficulties from the Egyptian authorities by no giving more frequencies and not allowing A380. Egypt Air have strong influence on the government.

According to Etihad's Instagram page, they will be sending their B787 to BEY starting from 27.10.2019.

It's really interesting to see how many widebodies BEY receives from various Middle Eastern cities.

I just found out that Uzbekistan Airways will introduce a second daily TAS-JED. Is it actually correct? It honestly seems to be a mistake. I just can't believe they'd be able to fill 2 767s every day. Do you have another source? I tried to find another one but couldn't reach any result.
