Good thing I flew this route in IF back in August with the A380!

And for the future, this is probably better suited for FR24 findings

I’m guessing it wasn’t very profitable to use such a large aircraft with such a high fuel burn rate on such a short route.

Avg flight time for Dubai to Riyadh is 1:35 which is significantly longer than the 30 min flight to Muscat

And you’re really making me want to fly some short A380 flights now

Oh yeah definitely. I mean here in the US we have some almost 4 hour regional routes and this whale flying only an hour and a half is pretty crazy

In the Middle East, There are many airlines who operated large planes on flights that are shorter than 2 hours!

For example, All of Emirates regional flights are operated by B777 & A380

Many Qatar Airways Regional flights are operated by the B777 , A350 & B787.

Kuwait Airways flies the B777 on many short-haul flights as well as Saudia & Etihad with their B777s & B787s

In order to get those lines, You’ll have to buy the monthly gold subscription. 🙏

Off Topic ||| Look at this for example! 😉 Currently there are 2 QR B777-300ERs flying to Kuwait at the same time. The flight time Is approximately 55 minutes.

And that’s not it ;) QR flies to KWI 9 times a day, most are operated by B777s & A350.

Actually just this morning I was looking for some short flights with big plane because of how interesting they are

I think it was more to increase aircraft utilisation rather than let it sit at DXB under the sun. It was nice when it lasted bu5 eventually, economics comes first.

Twin engines for the win and our future! 🏁
