Hello All,

Can anyone advise as to the delay in delivery of Saudia Arabian
Airline's MD-11's.  A good friend of mine who was scheduled to transfer
from the A-300 to the MD-11 has been told to expect to remain on the
A-300 and was given no word as to the hold up.  This all comes after he
and several other crew members were trained and prepared to take
delivery of the MD-11.  The silence from SV is very strange as last we
know the 4 MD-11's are sitting in Long Beach ready for delivery.  Any
information would be greatly appreciated.
