Saudi businessman Youssef Al-Hamdan has filed a SR100 million (US$26.6m) lawsuit against Saudi Arabian Airlines for selling him a faulty 747.
Arab News reports that Al-Hamdan “checked [the 747] thoroughly before completing his purchase. After finalizing payment, Al-Hamdan discovered that most of the aircraft’s main technical devices were missing.”
Reportedly Al-Hamdan and a law firm attempted to contact Saudi Arabian but did not hear back. Al-Hamdan wants the carrier to either restore the aircraft to its pre-sale condition or pay SR100m so the aircraft can be properly fitted out.
Specifics of which parts are missing, as well as what type of 747 is involved, were not specified.
Last July our sister publication Airline Business published a cover interview with Saudi Arabian CEO Khalid Abdullah Almolhem, who likes to keep his carrier out of the news. It will be interesting to see how Saudi Arabian responds to this matter.
