Another new arrival: Saudia

We're expecting to add service from several new carriers at LAX this year, and the second of them (Norwegian being the first) appeared last week. Saudia, the flag carrier for Saudi Arabia, has begun direct service to/from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia - the only direct service between Los Angeles and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. LAX is also Saudia's only destination on the west coast. There will be three flights a week in brand new B777-300s. The flights take fourteen to fifteen hours, and will operate out of the TBIT.

  1. And don't forget the Saudi Flight and their 747's sitting at the FBO while their 20 passengers head into the limos. Saw an UAE the other day too. Bet they serve alcohol on the 747 where they don't on the 777s.
