The crew was good. The change in the schedule delayed our connecting flight from JED to DMM for more than 10 hours. I had to schedule my important meeting early morning. SAUDIA is not helping to reserve other available flights as this delay was their mistake and we paid the penalty without any care to satisfy their customers. It will be the last time to travel with SAUDIA and I will post this story everywhere to tell all passengers the risk they need to take if they book via SAUDIA.
It was excellent experience. The only disadvantages is you have to walk to the gates in long walks. There no golf cars to transfer passengers.

Pros: "My seat was just fine, it was only a 1.4 hour flight"
Cons: "The food was not great, however I want to say thank you very much for having something"
Cons: "Boarding & deplaning for Business class should be priority. Baggage claim also should be priority. Currently there’s no difference between business and economy classes"
Cons: "The offerings of the snack is very cheap"
Pros: "Good flight with good crew"
Cons: "Air conditioning was poor"
Cons: "Saudia always delayed always"
Cons: "My flight was great"
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "I've done this flight. It's 45 minutes. Both times we were 45 minutes late taking off. No apology, no sense of urgency."
Cons: "The first and final call was announced but no one guide people to go to the counter and no one was there. Then suddenly they said the gate is closed and did not accept to wait for few minutes"
Cons: "1- seats selections. 2- meals 3- arrival procedures."
Pros: "Excellent seat. Food good."
Cons: "Drinks service skimpy. Jeddah airport not the best."
Cons: "Male and departurr"
Cons: "The flight was late"
Cons: "Food, airplane age, they boarded us and then kept us inside airplane for 45 mins because of bad weather at destination airport. They should confirm flight info before boarding."

Cons: "The stop was 7:30 hours and next flight got delayed for another 2 hours since the flight captain didn’t arrive from Jeddah airport. The airport crew were not able to answer what was the schedule which kept all passengers in a dilemma. I will never take a risk and reserve SAUDIA for international flights."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful."
Cons: "This flight was delayed 4 hours due to "technical problems", which is understandable, however, during those 4 hours the passengers had no information. The flight information on the screens would say "go to gate", "last call", etc, several times, but they weren't boarding, they didn't even have a gate assigned to them! Passengers just stood around confused for many hours. This at Jeddah's King Abdulaziz Airport, by far the worst airport I have ever been at in the world."
Pros: "That I’m getting home"
Cons: "Everything- airport plane food"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Seat comfort (old) Food (bald and unappetizing) Crew use passengers’ overhead to stow their luggage."
Cons: "The e-Ticket wasn’t bought. I had to stay at the airport for 2 hours and finally no ticket was issued. Very disappointed. It’s my last experience with you."
Cons: "To summarize. First the transit area is crowded and very small The transit airport is only for Saudi airlines , they have only one lounge which is not supporting any Visa card ( means if your Visa card allow you to enter for free lounge you will not find it case it will be in the main airport which they will not allow you to go their and if you want to enter the only lounge their means you must pay or to be alfursan member ) . Second when we enter the airplane and when we reach the runway the captain announced (We have technical problem and we will go back to the gate to fix it) . We stayed 2 hours plus in the airplane then they said we fix it and we will start our journey now . Third :When I reached cairo airport sound 3:30 am , i didn’t find my only bag :( Not only me , around 15-20 passengers had same issue . We went to the counter and they said it’s usually happens in Saudi airlines in the busy season , I was shocked , then he said wait for the next flight case they put some bags on it , I have no choice except waiting case it’s my only bag and everything is in it . But unfortunately after waiting in the airport till 7:30 am I got nothing , they took my number and they give me document that I have a missed bag and they will contact me within 48 hours to update me . I was planing to travel out of cairo but I couldn’t case they said i need to be in cairo if I want the bag to be delivered fast . So I waited till they call me again around 4-5 pm the delivery company told me that they have my bag , I was surprised that they remove the plastic packing ( which we keep it for safety ) and they said case it’s needed to be removed before entering in the X-ray , more over the delivery company ask me to meet them around the airport and I reached before them ( the funny thing , they reach to me through public transportation) what a careless!!!"

Pros: "It was not crowded. Found three seats across and was able to lie down and sleep"
Cons: "Delay at the counter to get the boarding pass. I have checked online and also I had to use the long lane. Moreover, the space between seat rows was too tight and I couldn’t sleep."
The flight is delayed more than 3 and half hours, we were on the gate but no body told us about the delay and there wasn't a screen right there to shows us the delay, the staff came late also for boarding. We were lost 😕
Flyadeal was nice surprise. It was excellent airline affordable 👍 big thumb up . I wish you more success
I am really appreciate your help
Boarding staff is changing passenger locations regardless of the money you pay during reservation. They do not respect women and specially when pregnant. Very bad airlines and bad staff. It will be on my blacklist onwards!!
They took our bags at the door of the plane stating that the cabin was full. Then we waited over 39 min for getting the bags from baggage claim. Flight was late This is usual for flyadeal . Very bad experience again
Pros: "Nothing was good to like"
Cons: "The boarding experience was the worst ... we did board from a different gate than on screens and through busses The previous flight was canceled so they board the the passengers of that flight with us with no respect to the rules of the government of social distance with passengers from boarding to seating all passengers next to each other"

Pros: "Departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "I took the exact same flight twice; both times passengers were taken to the basement to the farthest gate at the airport for boarding. And then, we took a bus around the airport ground to the airplane which was too far from terminals."
I like the price of the ticket. I do not like the waiting, waiting, waiting to drop off luggage. I do not like the waiting, waiting, waiting to board. I liked that the flight was on time.
Delayed more than an hour.
Staff aggressive The gate was too far
New airplanes - timely departure! No entertainment, this needs improvement!
The flight delayed. No screen, no charge for mobile devices. The portion of food is very small. The food is not delicious and no sweet just 3 pieces of fruit mostly apple. If you want coffee or tea you have to buy even you buy ticket at higher price than airlines that offer drinks, snacks and meals for free.

I was running around the airport like a mad man trying to figure out my flight number and check in station. The airline lost my luggage and the claim process is vague. I was told I will be contacted with my claims number at the airport. Thus far I haven't heard anything from the airline. The number given goes straight to voice mail."
