They're returning from the Eid Holliday. The holiday was from the 2nd to the 12th of Oct. Trying to find commercial air flight out of here or returning is next to impossible. It looks as though your company made a backdoor deal to capitalize on the lack of commercial flight availability. No doom here I'm afraid.

They don't leave Saudi for Eid. They leave KSA for the Haj. Before and at the end of July we could barely get a parking spot at LAX because of all the private jets carrying Saudis trying to get away from the Haj or return to the Kingdom when it ended.

The company I work for makes billions of dollars a day. Don't think they are worried about making a few beans off expat Sauds.

Never said anything about doom. I said it was highly unusual that our company has us schlepping Saudi families halfway around the world when Obama could not ride on our a/c if he wanted to.

Trust me. They leave for Eid. I couldn't find a plane ticket out of here to Dubai even. I sat here for the 10 day holiday wishing I was somewhere else. The citizens of the GCC make a mass exidious during ALL Muslim holidays.. Both Eids, Ramadan and about 10 other yearly Holidays.
And no Saudi Air Bases are not all that secure and locked down like American Air bases. I can definitely see them allowing citizens to land as the commercial airports are booked to the max. And as I'm sure your airline is in the business of making money and not flying for charity I don't see why they wouldn't fly a few Saudis home for the right price. Especially if they needed the planes here anyway to pick up other passangers.
