They could have at least painted the tail on that Boeing 747. It just does not look right with the emblem on a white background.

This is because the same discrimination we get in Kingdom.Once I travelled to LHE on Phuket AIr B747-200 which was operating on behalf of Saudi Arabian...That Aircraft was as much old that""Lagta tha abi gir jaye ga"..The lights of the lavoratories were mostly not working.The sounds of the engines were strange.Our Aircraft had come from JED and stopped at RUH for passengers after continuing for Lahore.I was at riyadh the aircraft stopped for very long time due to technical fault

thanks for the share Abbas bhai.

AAI aircraft leased by SV are painted in full colors, however during Hajj, yes you will see a lot of interesting stuff!

A.Aziz
Because they're easily available & cheap!!
Besides, many Hajj Pilgrims are first time flyers who dont have much luxary to compare that a/c's cabin with so they will gladly take it anytime.

I just hope their pressurization systems are in order as my dad almost blew his ear - on an Air Arabia A320! As its cabin pressure was skewed #-o
