That is the question... heard they were grounded, shut down until further notice. Dont know the details, but the info came from one of their crew.

Yeah, I can second that. A skipper from there (mate of mine) has told me this. He's got loads of time off. All office staff have their CVs out.

No idea, but thought royal jet is owned by the government of Abu Dhabi, one of the most richest

A "Dubai " call sign indicates a Dubai Royal Flight aircraft

A "Dubai " call sign indicates a Dubai Royal Flight aircraft not Royal Jet from Abu Dhabi.

Also, Royal Jet do not have Avros. That'd be Dubai Airwing.

Strange, they were planning to expand a lot and they just got a loan of $116 million to buy 2 new BBJ. Apparently, it was a profitable company, so, something estranged should happened. There's no news about it and nothing is written
