thank you AbdulAziz for the info, so deploying 777 on such route is feasible for SV. I think before 777, this route was served by B743s which SV retired after getting 777 from Boeing.

Raihan bhai this route is the only profitable in KSA all airlines such NAS AIR and previously SAMA AIR tried to capture this route till now NAS AIR has a flight every 2h 30 min and SV has hourly a flight between these cities.
SV using all types of AC on this route from B747-400 , B777 , A330 , A321 & A320s and yes its feasible but for ur info. that even a flight is full I heard all local flights of SV are in lose bcz low prices of tkts on economy class .. rate between RUH-JED is 280 SR, if u know Qaisumah airport to JED is 410, and JED-Dammam 390 SR.

thank you for the information, lets see when Gulf Air & Qatar Airways (and i think a total of 3 operators were granted permission) starts their flights within Saudia as domestic operators, hope you get good competitive fares :)

I think only QR will come GF is quite till now I am thinking there are no planes with GF how they will operate in KSA... but I don't think their will be competitive prices as I told u they think its very low fares ... NAS AIR when started their price sealing was SV price then they could not compete no their prices are not controlled RUH-JED most of times their prices goes to 550 till 600 SR ??!!
Now they are suspending all their operation in PAK
