I have to fly from NYC-New Delhi for emergency and Saudia airlines has a flight that's $1k one way compared to $2-8K on united, american airlines, emirates. It stops in Jeddah then onward transfer to New Delhi.
Just curious if it is safe to travel this route for any reason since the planes seem to be empty whereas every other flight is almost fully booked.
I saw similarly priced NYC-Helsinki-Doha(FINAIR)/NYC-Moscow-Delhi(AEROFOLO) but these required self-transfer and were not a good option.
Just wondering if there is a catch on the Saudi flight.
