[prem fare gone]: Saudia: AMS-DXB 353 in Business Return

https://www.google.com/travel/flight...1Ksw8x1kXk7XQA

Dates available in June 2022.
Mid week departure.
Some dates have 8+ hour layover in JED.
AMS-JED flights on B788
Saudia website says no flights available on some dates but I was able to book via OTA (Lastiminute.com) with e-ticket issued immediately.
I was able to manage my account and select seats on the Saudia website.

Edit: Books into D class and fare seems to available until 28 June after which it jumps to 774.

Delta base members would earn 7700 RDMs and MQMs and 1540 MQDs 3.40 MQD Ratio on this fare at €434 ... Thur/Sunday combos just have two hour connections...

I booked a Thursday-Sunday trip.

If Ive read the other Saudi fare deal correctly and the travel sites then you dont need any visas, Covid tests to transit Jeddah. Dubai definitely doesnt require anything.

I was going to book Royal Jordanian from CDG for 800 for my dates yesterday but got side tracked. For 353 I can forgo the BA Avios and Tier Points!

Not getting any dates through the Saudia website (no flights available). Can you post a link?

edit: works on my phone, not on my desktop, might be a browser issue

Booked and issued on SV directly for october! No visa needed for transit in KSA (as long as it doesn't exceed 12 hours I think?)

Now let's see if that deal "flies" (pun intended)

Booked, thank you! Cancelation policy seems quite reasonable too (EUR 90 if I am not mistaken)!
