Pros: "What we liked about this flight was, for such a short flight you get a meal. Staff on board were great also."
Cons: "Our grievance is with ground crew at BEY airport and AMM. 1 piece of lugagge was left in AMM though it was checked connecting from our previous flight. Upon arrival we were told they would contact us. After a long back and forth as we did not have a local number, they tried to dismiss us by saying someone would whatsapp us to let us know when the luggge has arrived. SPOILER ALERT: they never did. We insisted on finding out more and after being pressed they admitted they had received a note from AMM airport that the piece of luggage would arrive in the next flight (5 hours later). We returned later on and found we needed a special permit at BEY airport, only the person on the piece of luggage was allowed back in. Upon receiving the permit, staff continued to press for a name of who confirmed the luggage was there, we told them they had confirmed earlier. I was allowed inside and found the piece of luggage still on the belt though the flight had landed 3 hours earlier and the carousel was being used for another flight. Apparently they don’t bother to check or act on the messages until the end of the day. Finally, we had to argue to be compensated and received $30 USD for our troubles even though they should have offered this as standard practice."

Pros: "Kayak is a wonderful site for ticketing."
Pros: "Boarding. Hostesses greetings and attitude"
Cons: "1- Seat Cushions are all used up and have become uncomfortable to sit on. 2- Safety video was thought to be a limited time promotion, yet has seemingly replaced hostesses safety instructions role and has become over-used and abnoxious to listen to each time. 3- food variety is low and choices of entertainment is limited compared to the price being paid. 4- over the last few years of travelling with MEA, the RUH- BEY trajectory has flown on time a handful of instances. Though it might be the most expensive usd/mile flown. not sure what mea's problem is."

There was no plane for people to board Abu Dhabi and were left stranded. Thankfully the airport staff re-booked everyone immediately and dealt with the situation efficiently in a professional way. I was delayed by at least 8 hours. There was no email from Etihad about the canceled flight or an apology. It was a bit disappointing given that they are my favorite airline."

Crew members told us we needed to hold our carry on’s, on our lap then to store it under the seat because other people have bigger bags.

They blame it on the TSA and say it has to fit in and asked us to pay 325 $ to take the same bag that they brought things in."

Cons: "Few food and drinks options Bathrooms not so clean"

This happened both in my outbound and return flights. This meant queing in the heat out on the tarmac with the economy passengers."
Pros: "I wanted to cancel my flight ticket 2/3 days after buying it. I called vayama and they told me that it can't be canceled. I asked to reschedule the booking instead and they told me that rescheduling will cost me more than the price of the original ticket! Now I lost the money I paid! I will stop booking my flights through kayak going forward. I am not happy with the service and the policies do not make any sense. This was a waste. I am very disappointed.

Cons: "Movie options more limited than other airlines. Crew were certainly OK - a bit abrupt, but I really don’t need someone fawning over me to be satisfied."

Cons: "The plane seemed to have a signal jammer so I could not send any messages before we pulled out of the gate. Our departing flight was delayed two hours, just sitting on the runway without the screens turned on to let us watch anything. The return flight was unpleasant because we were not able to sit together."
Cons: "I actually didn't fly QR. My RJ light from TLV to AMM was delayed by approx 2 hours. I asked to be taken off the flight in order to fly the day after from TLV to LCA and take QR. However the RJ gate agents explained that there are over 40 people on the flight that need to take the QR from AMM and that the ties between RJ and QR are very strong and the QR flight will wait the necessary 15 minutes. However, as we landed in AMM we saw the QR aircraft push back 5 minutes earlier than the scheduled departure. We got stuck in AMM and the RJ people were nice but totally inefficient and claimed that they were limited by their corporate procedures. I asked to be put on an Etihad flight that was scheduled to leave 2 hours later and that would put me at the end of the day in MAA (my destination) around 2.5 hours later which was acceptable in my eyes. The transfer desk agent said he is going to arrange it, disappeared for 45 minutes and then came and told me this is already too late for Etihad (it was not) and anyway they cannot let me take Etihad since they are not a part of "One World". I argued a bit and he said ok went to teh back office and disappeared for another 20 minutes. at that point he came and told me that all is taken care of and here is my new flight and proceeded to show me an itinerary which took me through BKK to MAA but the AMM-BKK flight will leave only at 0130 at night (this was around 1430) and get to BKK in the afternoon tomorrow. Then I will have to wait in the airport another 8-9 hours to fly to MAA. hence 2 nights without sleep staying at airports. BTW, I was the only Business/first passenger but this did not confer on me any special treatment. I refused to take this route and at the end asked them only to get me back to TLV and there I will change the whole route and go tomorrow on QR from LCA. I had to wait at AMM airport until 2100 and only now - 2300 - reached home which I left at 0600 this morning. BTW, i don't think that they restored my ticket to its original form (which was a full QR ticket covering also the RJ and Pegasus flights. but I was too tired to argue. I will postpone my trip by one more day and change the route to avoid another debacle like this one. Also, I chatted with the QR people in Amman, and ithey claim that they were not told that the RJ from TLV had 40 passengers connecting through them. This is the absolute opposite of what the RJ people claimed. Last, all his is without even mentioning the issues this delay caused since I have people who came specifically for this, waiting for me in MAA and God only knows when I will manage to get there and whether or not they will wait for me. Guys, you have to do something about this. I am quite a regular flyer and this is the worst experience I had."

They had a policy in place that stated since I could have taken a later flight, they wouldn't compensate my hotel... but I had never been told that, otherwise I would have made other arrangements. I had to be out of Iraq at a particular time, and leaving any later simply wasn't possible. The staff was uncaring, and unfriendly throughout the entire process."

Pros: "The seats on the plane are fairly comfortable and the meals provided are good. Vanity kits handed out were good too"
Cons: "It starts off with a chaotic luggage check in. No order, the staff take breaks on a whim and leave long queues of passengers waiting to check in their bags. The cabin crew looked rather annoyed at us boarding the plane and didn't bother to smile or greet as we came on board. Since the flight was at 1:30am, we fell asleep almost immediately however the cabin crew woke us up by vigorously shaking my shoulder to ask if we wanted food. The vanity kits were just thrown onto our laps while we slept. The on board entertainment system did not work on the entire plane for the duration of the flight."
Cons: "Departure on time"

Cons: "The meal was not enough not really business class food , the crew is so lazy you have to repeat the order twice so the can understand in Arabic"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "There was one crew member that talked to me for a little bit and was very helpful about planning my vacation and he was just a cool guy all around. And the food wasn’t bad!"
Cons: "The TVs on my first flight didn’t work, the headphones I got had one completely broken bud with no cover and the other didn’t work. And they put my luggage on the wrong plane so I have to wait an extra hour which caused me to miss my driver who was going to take me to my hotel! And to top it all off I was told to change clothes because they “weren’t appropriate”... it was just shorts and they went past my knees! I am a man and should be able to where shorts because they are comfy!"
Cons: "The hostesses in the my cabin (our seats were row 55) were extremely cery rude. One of the aged one litteraly acted like she was my mother in the sense of bossing around. They were not attentive to when people called them and they were really very rude to almost everyone that asked them for help. I had a 3 yr old who got tired of sitting so i took him around and took him to prayer area when no one else was there, and they came in telling us that it was not safe and i told them that he just wanted to walk around and we just got here iw will go in 2 mins and they were like no sorry its not safe, something with ocygen and everything and i was like if i pray here then it wudnt be dangerous? And they were like ur baby wont be here. Why in the world will my baby stay at his seat when his mother is away. And then I was really sick that day which is why i was drinking alot of tea that i do not even like, i was only drinking it bez it was hot and they were giving me attitude giving the tea. Also one time they did not have the tea so i asked them to give me hot water and one of them said u have to wait 5 mins when we start serving and at that time i really thought she just did not wanna give it yo me because they were just being mean. I did not know tht genuinly they were refreshing everything, so one of them brought me boiling hot water and then cane 5 mine later with food and taunted me that you did not finish your water. For heavens sake I was not gonna drink boiling hot water, i was waiting for it to get to the level ehetr i cud drink it. Overall extremely very disappointed"
Cons: "They took 1 hour more, so they make the long flight longer"
Pros: "Entertainment is okay but can be better"
Cons: "Lie flat bed was uncomfortable"
Cons: "EVERYTHING. Dirty bathrooms; no places to sit; no facilities; full lounge. Passengers were sleeping on the floor at the duty free stores. HORRIBLE airport. A new one will be open soon, but who knows when."
Cons: "WC smell in the cabin, ground staff was not ready for us to board the plain form the bus. And getting of the plain. Food 2 days polls bad muffins, sandwiches bad. Even the electronic survey does not work"
Cons: "My flight was changed to a 10 hour layover in Jeddah after a night flight. The transfer waiting area is too small and there is not even wifi in the whole airport. I got food poisoning the day after my flight too! There was no personal entertainment available on my second flight."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Overall good."
Pros: "Entertainment, quality of economy class, leg room compared to many large airlines, extremely quite B-787 Dreamliner, flight attendant were super flexible and friendly."
Cons: "I guess both Manchester & Jeddah airports suffer from Dated old buildings and both use Buses to transport passengers to and from plane."
Pros: "Nothing. I would never fly Saudia again and will tell my friends and family not go via saudia. This is my worst airline experience ever. Choosing saudia was a worst decision."
Cons: "The food was bad. The FA did not meet service expectations. You left all my luggages in Jeddah and when i asked help you promise to deliver it to my home before 12midnight. I am so tired and sleepy but i waited until 11pm cz i need my stuff and i have very important medicines there that i need to take tonight. When i called to check the location of my delivery, the driver just plainly said he will deliver tomorrow. I found this very unprofessional and no care about their customers. You gave your commitment to me to deliver before 12midnight, twice. 3 times including the airport personnel. I expected it tonight. Now u just change your mind and tell me you will deliver it tomorrow? I am working in a different city tomorrow morning and i travel via bus. It is an extreme inconvenience cz i will not be at home when u deliver and no one is left at my flat. Worst airline experience ever. I regret flying with Saudia. This is my first and last. Please just send my luggage urgent. Thank you."
Pros: "Boarding and crew"
Cons: "I was travelling business class and they managed to loose my luggage!!! Moreover, they do not have a delivery service for the lost luggage, you have to drive all the way to the airport. In Lebanon that is not easy or cheap and is highly time consuming! No one even calls to apologize or suggest a proper compensation! The entertainment system does not work properly, seats are not very clean and the food is tasteless."
Pros: "comfortable chair"
Cons: "staff , food and baggage service"
Cons: "Personnel in jeddah airport left their places ,,leaving thousands of passengers without service. ..no one to complain to,,, irresponsible behaviour, ,,never using your airlines again"
Pros: "Comfort, new Planes, entertainment"
Cons: "Toilet infight , nobody cleans them during flight"
Pros: "Decent entertainment options, albeit severely censored."
Cons: "When we got to our seats, we discovered the armrests would not lift between my husband and me. This was only the case for our row and one other. We asked the attendants to be reseated, and they shrugged. My husband found the back row was empty and moved there because the sympathetic attendants on our flight from D.C. to Jeddah offered us that row when the same thing happened on that flight. Just before takeoff, the crew on this flight insisted that my husband could not sit there because it was urgently needed for the crew only and made him return to the row with unmovable armrests. They said nothing to the two Arab men who were not crew but occupied the same last "for crew only" row on the opposite side of the aircraft, which makes me wonder if my husband didn't get a pass because he's black. For entire the duration of the nearly 13 hour flight, the only thing that sat in the row the crew so desperately needed was one of the crew members' bag, which easily could have been place in an overhead bin to allow us to sit there (as the kind Saudia attendants on our prior flight had done to ensure our comfort)."
Cons: "We were delayed on the runway for an hour with no updates. Inside the plane, it was extremely warm, and the crew did not come around with water until after the plane had taken off."
