Saudia B777-200LR @ SYD!

Why is a Saudia B777-200LR parked at SYD???? Are they looking at starting services out of SYD?

Hi Martin,

The aircraft is actually a Boeing 777-268(ER) (i'm an AvGeek), Unfortunatley this is just a charter flight (I believe for the Saudi Football Team).

Cheers!

I saw a Saudia B777-200ER at BNE on exactly the 14th of June 2012 when I was waiting at the gate for my Eva Air Flight. It arrived While I was at the gate but I recall no one ever getting off the aircraft , I think I remember someone getting off the aircraft in a wheelchair but that's it.

Hi Viscount, 

In regards to the Aircraft Info... Planespotters.net is a must for AvGeeks and alike... Just type in an airline your interested in and you'll be able to see the airlines entire fleet and stats.

For the details for who's inside the plane/what's it doing here I  found/find the info from aircraft spotting sites like Sydney Aiport Forum and Jetspotter (I found the info for who's onboard from a local Sydney planespotter who posts pretty good photo's on Facebook) 

Thanks!
