Take this for what it's worth. Draw your own conclusions. I'm just stating what's happening, not why it's happening.

Tomorrow morning we pick up our 3rd load of Saudi nationals at Atlantic Aviation at LAX airport.

This is extraordinary because we are an N-registered, private aircraft. We're owned/operated by an oil company. We ONLY carry our oil company exec's and VIP's, not Saudi families with no connection to our company.

We're also a Part 125 operator, strictly not for hire. Not sure if we're operating outside our charter or not.

Flights have been to Le Bourget in Paris. Some pax get off, some pax get on.

We fly them to Dhahran (OEDR) where we unload. We can't stay on the air base so we have to reposition the aircraft to Dammam (OEDF), stay overnight in Dammam, then head back to the states by way of Shannon, Ireland for refuel.

Dhahran is unusual because it's a strictly controlled military air base in Saudi. We're dropping off civilians, not military personnel.

Not going to hypothesize why the taxi service, just not part of our normal job.

Not going to say which oil company or N number. Want to keep my job. We are a wide body, based in the US.

The Saudis have their own jumbo jets. Why do they need a private company to fly them?
