  1. and the Saudi prince needs one of these things, why? sure, he’s a head of state with a ton of enemies, but that doesn’t mean he needs his own double-decker Air Force One! though, now that i think of it, the US President’s B747 has three levels… but he’s the prez, with a “football”

  2. Well, they changed the name of the land to their family name, they made themselves a new Islamic method just for rich people. they are having the forune of 100 million arabs.. so why not to have this air palace or maybe he gather all of his pitches of rotana inside in one shot.

  3. fellas, it is not about having or not having, whoever is rich, no matter where in the world or religion, he/she will show off !!! you think they don’t know what goes around them? oh they do !!! but with money never to end, they are bound to do something !!!

    He is lucky he does not have to pay taxes !!! well middle east is tax free land that is why you will see plenty of western working here cause no tax means more saving !!!! so its not just the rich who is getting richer !!! an average person is making it as well !!!

    cheer up and think boyond the circle of “hatred”

    peace … love for all – hatred for none
