REVIEW | Oman Air WY506: Salalah-Muscat



Salalah to Muscat on WY506
Muscat is the capital city of Oman while Salalah is Oman's 2nd largest city

Date: Oct 13, 2008
Dep: Salalah Airport SLL at 12:55
Arr: Muscat International MCT at 14:30
Distance: 1,050 km
Flight duration: 1 hr 35 mins
Fleet: B737-800 ( 144 seater ? )
Class: Economy
Seat no: 14F
Pax load : >95%


Overall service: Oman Air operates 3X daily flights from Salalah to Muscat vv, the one-way fare is fixed at 34 Riyals ( $ 93 ) thats very expensive for this short flight compared to 7 Riyals ( $18 ) if you take bus ( 12 hr journey ).
The seafood meal is just so-so . Most of the passengers are Omanis in their traditional dress.

I arrived at the airport just 50 mins before time. Here is the check-in



Salalah Airport only handles 4 flights on that day- 3 to Muscat, and another to Kozhikode ( Calicut ).. here are some passengers travelling on the same flight

Taking off... Jebel Dhofar from far away. Salalah is very beautiful city - it's surrounded by crystal clear Arabian Sea coast in one side and spectacular Jebel Dhofar on another,

My lunch .. Salalah-Muscat ( 1,050km ) is comparable to Kuala Lumpur-Kuching ( 1,050km ) and if you travel on Malaysia Airlines on KUL-KCH you get complimentary meal too. Hmm but this seafood meal is just so-so.. not up to expectation for the money I paid .. The seafood is only by name because there were only 3 pieces of shrimp in that rice.. Oman has great food so I was kinda disappointed with that meal on OmanAir

It's annoying that you don't put all the pictures on one post.
