With the help of its big brother, Al Maha will use about 50 planes (alas, no Dreamliners) from the significant Qatar Airways fleet and any one of the 200 aircraft the airline has on order; with a hefty order of airplanes last November, there shouldn't be much shortage of equipment. Painted in green, the national color of Saudi Arabia, the planes will sport the same onyx that we've come to expect of Qatar.
Thanks to the Saudi government opening up the domestic skies to foreign carriers, things should start taking off by the middle of this Summer. No word yet if Oneworld passengers will be able to earn and burn on this new venture.
