Charter company Atlas Air issues statement over WWE delayed departure from Riyadh

Last night, before the Atlas Air 8185 departed Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for JFK Airport in New York, the charter company contracted to take WWE Superstars to and from Saudi, Atlas Air, issued a statement regarding the delay that kept the crew in Saudi for way more hours than they would have liked.

“A chartered WWE passenger flight operated by Atlas Air is currently delayed in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia due to a mechanical issue. The flight was scheduled to depart at 0300 local time on November 1. Our top priority is always to ensure our passengers arrive safely and on time at their destination,” the statement read. “The aircraft is being repaired and will be inspected and certified before returning to service to transport our passengers to their final destination. We regret that operational disruptions delayed the flight and apologize to our passengers who were inconvenienced.”

The mechanical issues are said to be not the real reason why everyone is delayed and a much more bigger issue, a disagreement between the Saudi government and WWE, is the reason for all the delays.
