Cons: "Flight to Istanbul was fine. The flight back was a terrible experience! During our connecting flight in Athens our boarding passes wouldn't print at the self service computers and there was no one to help us so we had to go back out to the front desk. The airline representative was extremely rude. There was 5 employees standing around the computer with NO customers and when we asked if this was Turkish Airlines and if they could help, the woman (manager) responded "this WAS Turkish Airlines" as if they were done helping customers for the day (it was 9AM and our flight was leaving in 45 min). We explained that we couldn't print our passes and she ROLLED her eyes as if it was an inconvenience to help us. THEN on our flight from Istanbul to Chicago, a passenger died an hour into the flight and they placed the body on the seats behind us for over 10 hours! Nobody even told us what happened! We didn't know if they died from natural causes or if it was something else! They didn't offer to seat us somewhere else or even inform us they were placing the body there. We were completely shocked and uncomfortable the whole flight home. We couldn't eat or sleep. We're completely disgusted and scarred from this overall experience."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines is a wonderful airline. The service was excellent and the food was delicious and plentiful. They are organized and helpful. On time and smooth flying and landing."

Pros: "Very professional and very convenient."
Pros: "The food was good. The seats were comfortable, could have used a bit more leg room. Entertainment was great."

Pros: "Delicious food, amenities kit with socks, slippers, earplugs, toothpaste and more, fantastic entertainment system, power plugs and USB plugs at every seat."
Cons: "The laptop on board ban is a mess. As we were flying to the US, we had to go through literally 4 security checks one after the other. Then, all of our electronics (laptop, camera, even headphones) other than our phones had to be taken. As everyone had to go through it , this delayed our flight by 1 hour. When we landed, we waited literally 1.5h before they started handing out our electronics. All in all, it took me 4 hours to leave the airport."
Pros: "Delicious food, fantastic entertainment system, power plugs and USB plugs at every seat. The amenities kit everyone gets is fantastic and sure makes the flying experience feel more special."
Pros: "This was one of those flights where everything was easy. Boarding was on time, relaxed. In fact, everyone was relaxed. We were ready to fly early, passengers spread out in the empty plane with lots of pillows and blankets, food was given immediately to accommodate passengers who were fasting for Ramadan. The screens worked well, lots of game and movie options. Only problem... No gin and tonic! In fact, no alcohol at all on this route."
Pros: "It's really cheap prices"
Cons: "But it's gives wrong books"
Pros: "My above score should be 5 stars in all categories. They were running a special price on business class upgrades. It was fabulous: food great, service attentive, and seat that totally reclined to bed. I slept over 8 hours."

Cons: "Flight delayed about 2 hours past schedule. When drafted my seat fouls not recline. When I asked for assistance from flight attendant she practically blew me off. This was a9 hour flight!"
Cons: "My luggage just disappeared on a flight from VIE to Istanbul. Those lost baggage handlers are totally unmotivated also. No explanation at site, barely any email follow up. That's it????? Also on the way back they took away cameras. My professional camera and lens equipment was handled poorly, thrown around carelessly and the lens got damaged. I am quite unhappy with this airline"
Pros: "Best value on the market. Excellent service. Great food and beverages. Very good service. Excellent Longe in Istanbul makes Most Club Longe look like a dump."

Cons: "Employees didnt look or act very welcoming. Very little food."
Pros: "I like the entertainment system with lots of movies chooses."
Cons: "They told us to observe the 4 groups mentioned on our boarding passes, then there was only one entry... From buses to plane, instead of separating people into buses according to seating, they mixed them all up, hence people who had seats up front were entering the rear of the plane and vice-versa, causing incredible congestion and confusion when boarding, people along the center aisles going both ways and trying to pass while loaded with hand baggage, quite ridiculous indeed."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work at all and I had to ask for a pillow and/or blanket several times, after over half an hour for someone to respond the first time."
Pros: "Boarding staff was very friendly, & kind people"
Cons: "There is no TV Late around 40 min."
Cons: "We missed our flight from Istanbul to New York. The gate was changed while we were waiting at the assigned gate. No announcements were made about the gate change. We ended up stranded in Istanbul. The Turkish Airlines representatives were very rude and not helpful at all. They told me that we needed to purchase new tickets. My 14 year old and I were in Istanbul, Turkey with no way home. After hours on the phone with their customer service and many repeated phone calls and many collect phone calls to the United States, my mother was finally able to secure new plane tickets for $2000 one way for us to return to the states. We were in the airport for 24 hours before we could board a flight to make our way home. A few days after we arrived back is when the terrorist attacks occurred. I have been plagued with flashbacks of our time in the Istanbul airport. I feel that Turkish Airlines could have done a better job at trying to accommodate us in a time of desperation. I have been reluctant to contact them upon my return and a friend offered to call on my behalf and was treated in the same disrespectful manner. I would hate to think that Turkish Airlines could be representative of the people of Turkey. I can't imagine that Turkey or the citizens of this beautiful country could treat visitors in such a fashion. I appreciate your time in reading about our personal and devastating experiences during our trip that was to have been the trip of a lifetime with my son."

"Greeting BH International Airport, Flight No. GF-2101 From Bahrain to Dammam At 1:35 am. to 2:20 am. Booking reference: WFYQEG I was informed that I will receive my baggage in Dammam Airport, later on I arrived in Dammam and I didn’t get my baggage, they claimed due to my friend Mr. Faisal didn’t show because he left the Airport and drive his own car all the way to Dammam. OK, I get it and I totally respect the system when you don’t show up your baggage get dropped from the flight, but it’s not my fault when i stay in Bahrain Airport waiting for my next flight around 5 hours then once i get to Dammam I don’t receive my baggage, because my friend who’s didn’t show up his baggage was arrived to Dammam airport, and i’m the one who deserve to get his own baggage didn’t receive anything. I think you mixed up between our baggage, the tag on my bag has his name but actually it’s mine and his bag has my name but actually it’s for him, that’s why I received his bag in DMM airport and I didn’t get mine and i was so frustrated. Also here’s the baggage numbers: GF 175011 My baggage wasn’t received GF 175008 His baggage was received and he don’t deserve to receive it because he left the airport and didn’t show up the flight For now i need to get my baggage to DMM airport please or contact me in personal please +966559600495 or this email. Kind regards, Mohammed Sent from my iPhone"
Pros: "The ground staff from the help desk was helpful enough"
Cons: "I could have been rebooked a flight without having to pay for it. Who wants to lost his or her passport? It was very inconvenient and stressful for me, at least free rebooking would have ease my situation."
Cons: "Veg Biryani instead of pasta plz"
Cons: "Was a good experience"
Pros: "I' not sure which flight this relates to. I've taken economy and business class and clearly the business class is better but economy is fine. The crew were good in both classes and whilst the food in business was better I didn't have a problem in economy either."
Cons: "Check in was fine and very friendly but boarding could be better particularly in business. At Heathrow it was a bit chaotic as all classes seemed to be mixed up so it was difficult for priority passengers such as disabled to get through everyone crowded up to the desks and the same applied for business class as well. The IFE wasn't too bad but it could be better. Bahrain airport is a mess and the boarding gates seem to be more like corridors with seats in them so it's difficult again when they call for business class passengers as unless you are already at the front you have to try to work your way through. I believe the airport is being rebuilt. If so then things will probably improve. I'm not sure why there needs to be 2 security checks within a few yards of each other when transiting between flights. they don't have this problem in Doha."
Cons: "Not lied to me about my extra being payed from Bahrain to Kenya because it was only payed to Dubai which is now causing me a lot of stress my flight from Dubai to Nairobi was cancelled while i was there without my knowledge"
Pros: "Wheel service was excellent"
Pros: "They are not as bad as their reputation states"

Pros: "Meal options and snacks, good crew staff. And relatively comfortable seating. The plane waited for us because of the earlier delayed flight, though we prefer to have been given the option to stay the night and catch the next morning flight."
Cons: "The flight got delayed from Alexandria and the staff at Manama airport directed us to a counter to get our onward boarding passes but another senior member of staff asked us "what are you doing here" and asked us to go straight to the gate, then when we arrived at Abu Dhabi the baggage did not arrive with us and we had to go back to the airport later to pick them up."

"They didn’t allow me to fly"
Pros: "Horrible , in-humans"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and staff were helpful when approached."
Cons: "Crew should have been proactive in determining passengers' needs, etc. Film choices were poor-- lots of violence, few family-orientated options."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Food was reasonable."
Cons: "A bit more leg-room and there is some scope for improvement in the food. Also, the entertainement could have more south Indian content and also allow to access entertainement for more time."
Cons: "Crew was very rude when giving veg meals. Even though we had confirmed veg meals multiple times with the airline prior to boarding, they still did not know that we had a specially requested Meal. After notifying the crew of this, one member gave us an extra meal. Another extremely rude staff member then proceeded to yell at us for eating meal. This was extremely uncalled for and has severly ruined the reputation of this airline in our eyes. The customer should still be addressed with some common courtesy and not be treated as if they are beneath the crew members, as if we are at fault for the crew's own carelessly stupid mistakes and lack of organization and proper communication"
Pros: "Flight was on time"

Cons: "My Baggiage is extremely damaged which is so disgusting and there is no way to report it"

Pros: "Entertainment and staff help"
Cons: "Seat was horrible. We suffered for 14 long hours. Our seat was next to the cooler and there was continuos noise. We could not sleep as wink and I was with 2 small kids. I booked ethiad for a good experience and suffered a lot. Never again."

Cons: "الملاحين غير متعاونيين ويهددون The crew so bad"
Pros: "Same food offered on both trips was a bit disappointing"
Cons: "The smell inside the flight"
Pros: "Etihad is always my first choice in aircraft, in-flight service and ground staff. I've flown them all, and Etihad is a best-in-class..."
Pros: "The crew were very good and attentive. Fight in both directions was smooth and very comfortable."
Cons: "In both directions, check in took forever and I was unable to check in online beforehand. The first flight, I waited 1.5 hr (perhaps that is the general experience from JFK) and in the other direction, at least 1 hr."
Pros: "Passengers were not clean and sweating"
Pros: "Customer service very good"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew great. Enough food at proper times. Plane clean"

Pros: "Leaving the aircraft."
Cons: "As far as I'm concerned, this is the worst airline I've ever flown. We got stuck with $350 in baggage fees, because a clause stating that we were not allowed a check-in bag was buried in the fine print for our ticket purchase. The website was not working prior to our return flight, and if it had worked, we would have been able to get at least a discount on this outrageous fee. But , despite this, (we took a screenshot) the counter staff in Abu Dhabi would not give us the discount. A baggage fee for $350 dollars for one bag? There is word for this. Thievery."
Cons: "Crew needs to be more polite to passengers. I witnessed the crew being rude to multiple customers. Also the good needs work. I've traveled Etihad multiple times before and this experience has made me want to not fly them again"
Cons: "Terrible service, lost all my luggage with no recall on where"
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "The flight crew was rude."
Cons: "The ground staff at Dallas were extremely rude. Made an old woman cry. Did not use common sense to check in people. They were weighing even obvious very small back packs that were obviously less than 3 lbs. talked to people in a rude manner and were not very helpful. I flew more 15 times in the last years. By far the worst experience. Flew emirates. Delta. Klm France airways. British airways. Even kenya airways. American and united. By far the worst experience. Service service"
Cons: "Staff is rude. No efforts to make the customer feel comfortable. Just get the money and disown attitude."
Cons: "Chai ☕️ should be good"
Cons: "When I complained about my lost luggage they asked me to file a complain at hometown which would be USA, but after a little explanation they filed a lost luggage complain."
Pros: "Etihad was efficient and punctual, as expected."
Cons: "every thing else"
Pros: "Service. Crew was nice and always with a smile. Great takeoff and landing very smooth. Flight on time."
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "People sitting in wrong seats and queue jumping"

Pros: "Economy legroom was good, great food, clean plane. Staff seemed professional but occasionally cold to requests."
Pros: "Great flight - Was very Comfortable in economy class considering it was a 141/2 hour flight . On time. Great Crew. US airline crew can definitely take lessons from the international airline crew on customer service."
Cons: "Was to crowded & bath room facilities are very less"
Pros: "The staff for our flight were all extremely friendly and accommodating. They came through the cabin several times with drinks and snacks and ensured we had the most comfortable flight possible. I thought the entertainment choices were excellent and really provided a wide array of genres and a unique multicultural assortment. Meals were very good, served in generous portions, and having a vegetarian diet I was happy to be so easily accommodated. I was lucky enough on this flight to have a row to myself so I could spread out."
Cons: "Touch genital no good food rude air hostess and staff"
Pros: "Business lounge was out standing"
Cons: "Small duty free shop"
Pros: "abu dubai airport transit area"
Cons: "nothing bad that i could found"
Cons: "Crew doesn't interact with the passengers at all. They act very snooty."
Pros: "Flight seats and entertainment was good"
Cons: "Overbooking Confirmed flight and seats gets cancelled when you reach airport to board Airports and call center staff is rude, no response when my luggage was missing I will never fly with etihad again."
Pros: "The service was great."
Cons: "The food was not up to the standard"
Pros: "I've flown more than 9 different airways on international flights; Etihad has probably the best economy seats and in flight entertainment with large movie collection."
Cons: "Etihad overbooked me along with more than a dozen other passengers on a 14-hour international flight. Apparently Etihad decides on who gets left behind. Etihad's "Transit Travelers" service is one of the WORST customer service desks I've ever been to. I waited in line for 2 hours. Passengers were urging to be served so they can make it to their connecting flights not knowing they have been already selected not to board those plains. Voices were raised and demands were made to speak to the supervisor. It was chaos. I made it to the agent shortly after the gate to my flight had opened. I was shocked by how the agent lacked empathy when he informed me I won't make it to the connecting flight because it had been overbooked. Not an apology or even sir! I was forced to be rerouted which stretches my 25-hour trip to 33 hours. Then the connecting flight gets delayed more than an hour resulting in missing the second connecting flight. Now my trip has become a 41-hour trip, I missed a day of work that's worth more than double the value of the voucher Etihad gave me and lost one day of unscheduled vacation. Etihad even damages my bag that had servived more than 10 flights. I will never fly Etihad and strongly recommend against flying with Etihad."
Pros: "Lots of legroom!"
Cons: "The flight from Riyadh ALWAYS leaves late. Arabs have so sense of punctuality."
Pros: "It was a good experience flying with Etihad Chicago-Abu Dhabi- Kathmandu"
Cons: "The dimensional requirement of carry-on luggage came as a surprise at the last moment. The luggage I could carry on any other flight was not allowed in the Chicago check-in."
Pros: "The food was ok."
Cons: "The crew at O'hare Airport had terrible customer service.. The boarding crew made everyone buy new carry-on bags as their current bags were apparently 'too tall' to fit, even though most of the passengers there had arrived from domestic flights without having any issue with their carry-on baggage. They said that either pay $300 to check-in your bag, or buy a new bag. Once everyone had bought new bags ($100 minimum) and ditched their old bags (created a huge pile in the corner of the boarding area), they didn't bother to check the new bags to see if they were now compliant... Never flying with Etihad!"
Pros: "cabin crew members were much more attentive."
Cons: "food was monotonous."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Bathrooms could be a little bit cleaner"
Pros: "It’s hard to say what was good, because everything was sub-par. I would say I liked nothing, except that it got me to where I needed to go. Would I pay for this again? Economy, maybe. Business? No way."
Cons: "Everything. I was flying business so the standard must be higher. Specifically? Bathrooms. Replace eather-worn chairs. Leather retains heat making the whole chair hot. As someone who finds everything cold, this was unbelievable; flight crew (rude & bossy, not international standard); seat positioning (your seat mate has to climb over you); meal (feels like an economy meal put on silverware); the pilot! did a hard brake on the runway, sending loose items flying; I really have nothing positive to say about Royal Jordanian, except that I would be happy to avoid them again."
Pros: "Crew was excellent and so was the comfortable seating."
Cons: "The audio selection was extremely unique, well strange to say the least."
Cons: "The pilot scared us off, we had a very rough landing! I will never usa royal jordanian again"

Cons: "Absolutely the worst flight and airport I have ever experienced. I will never travel royal Jordanian ever again!"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "We need to be reimbursed for our flights that THEY canceled."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, lots of leg room in the bulkhead area. I was able to sleep in spite of daytime travel because the crew kept the cabin low-lit. There were snacks and drinks available in the galley throughout the long flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very friendly, just “did the job”. The overhead lighting was focused on passengers’ heads, not on the lap area/tray table area where it’s needed. The bathrooms weren’t maintained during the flight—out of toilet paper, poop & urine on the seats, overflowing trash bins."
Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "Crew was helpful"
Cons: "Flight delayed over 1 hour, plane change so my paid seat was no more, screen does not work"

Cons: "They lost my bag"
Pros: "I upgraded my flight to business class and I enjoyed it."
Pros: "I travelled by my myself from Heathrow to Amman on a direct flight.

Cons: "Food could be better"

Cons: "Flight was delayed with no official status update, the gate even kept saying “Last call” when there was clearly no plane. No official boarding time was provided when the plane showed up, so I had to wait at the gate rather than taking a stroll through the airport. It ended up taking more than the “5 minutes” they kept stating every 5 minutes."

Pros: "Pleasant crew and smooth flight."

Cons: "I found used chewing gum in the magazine pouch in front of me which was pretty disgusting. The notice boards said the plane was boarding so I rushed from the lounge to the gate and they hadn't actually opened it yet (and didn't for the next ten minutes). Small things, but stopped me from giving an EXCELLENT rating."
Cons: "The toilet."
Pros: "Good service, leaving on time"

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."
Pros: "I don’t like it at all no buddy what to do he’s work I missed this flight coz of the security I passed 2 of them and in the third one I hade liquor from the duty-free so they don’t wanna put my hand back to the cargo"

Cons: "They downt know what customer service is all about!"
Pros: "Crew were great, seats were comfy. There eere less than 25 on an over 200 seat flight."
Cons: "The Airport was horrible, like from late 60's of last century in a 3rd world rural terminal !!! They did not offer me an upgrade, even though it was a very empty flight with lots of empty seats in the Business class section !!!!! Horrible..."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful. Nice clean plane."
Cons: "Airport in Jeddah is not good. Bathrooms are way below standard."
Pros: "Arrived in one piece."

Pros: "Going through 3 security checks was cumbersome and gate information was incorrect otherwise great service."

Cons: "Everything- airport plane food"
Pros: "I liked that there was an area for praying on flight. Also, I liked the food."
Cons: "My trip had two flights. The first one, from IAD to JED was the problematic one for me. I purchased the highest Internet package to finish some work on the flight. The service was terrible. I purchased 300MB for $25. I barely used less than 60MB in several hours of work because of terrible connection. Yet, when I complained to Saudia customer service, they insisted that there was no technical issue, refused to give me a refund, and did not even apologize. The transit in Jeddah's airport was terrible. The bathrooms are very dirty and smelly. In the return flight, we had an overnight stay in the airport. People typically need to sleep at this time. However, the airport was very crowded and, for so many people, there was not even enough seats to sit down."
Pros: "I do not recommend anyone to use it."
Cons: "Airlines Airport Employees are unprofessional, rude and untrained. Some passengers were allowed inside the plane to place their own bare feet on the plan walls, others slept on the floor!! Never saw anything like that...Saudis passengers hygiene were awful, smelly feet and strong body odour!!"
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: "The saudia app is not functioning well . It gives me massage saying my resrevation did notgo throw then i get an email withh sadad # which dose not work. Then i uesed the desk top site to do the resrevation"
Pros: "Everything!!! Esp the lovely friendly helpful kind flight attendant ladies. Food was fantastic n restaurant quality!!!"
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"
Pros: "Good food n movies, comfy seats"
Cons: "Rough bumpy flight with no xplanations or apologies from crew n interval btw connecting flights too short"
Pros: "Newer Planes - comfortable seats"
Cons: "No understanding of nuts and associated nut allergies - especially life threatening ones. 1. Pistachios left in seat pockets (my daughter has life threatening allergies from pistachio) - we explained to the stewardesses and the pilot came to - his answer was "SO WHAT" 2. Brownies served as dessert have traces of peanuts (my son has life threatening peanut allergies) 3. Dates served with nuts"
Pros: "Food, cabin crew are very good"
Cons: "Transit in Jeddah..The airport is not organized and the staff too."
Pros: "Too upset to remember."
Cons: "The airport only announced a 1 hour delay (instead of 5:10 pm it was posted at 6:10 pm) but the truth that we departed at 9:20 pm. At the end I lost a bag from my 3 piece luggage that they have charged me for the extra piece at a frustrating $302 USD :("
Cons: "Dear I try to cancal my flight I contect saudi airline they can't cancal it I try online no cancaltion I try with KLM on 24 they reply me on 25 .... I send you Email no reply ..... Or can't go through ...."
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."
Cons: "Food and Jedah Airport"
Pros: "It was much better than the Washington flight"
Cons: "Bad smell. Broken elements"
Cons: "No head phones"
Pros: "Staff were friendly, aircraft were clean and comfortable, with the entertainment being as entertaining as it should be. Food was decent and baggage policy is nice and generous. Seats are comfortable with great legroom, and good width and pitch."
Cons: "Transiting at Jeddah (South terminal) on economy class is an AWFUL experience, I wouldn't wish it on anybody. It's just a small block with 6 or 8 gates inside it which is much too small for the amount of people who wait for those flights. It's really difficult to find anywhere to sit and there's no paid lounge in the South terminal. Facilities are very poor with no WiFi and filthy bathrooms. What's more, all parking positions at Jeddah are currently remote gates, so everybody is bussed to the planes. Hopefully this will all change, at least to some degree, when the rebuilt airport opens."
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."
Cons: "The wait times at the airport were atrocious! Every single checkpoint took more than 25-30 mins to clear. Staff needs to be better trained to handle international passengers. Bilingualism should be implemented or provided to better assist guests that cannot speak Arabic. The final stretch that tested my patience to the max was the last security check before boarding the plane. We were waiting in line to be cleared for boarding for more than 1.5 hrs! Our flight was delayed, the food was served late, it was over heated...in short, everything went downhill from there. Needless to say, will not be flying Saudi Airlines again! I'd rather deal with layovers than poor customer service."
Cons: "The connection was in a different terminal and there was not enough time as the air europa was late and we had to deplane far and had to shuttle to the terminal"
Cons: "Mmmm.. let me see....perhaps ...well I can't think of anything..sry"
Pros: "Easy booking and quick confirmation"
Cons: "Pre seat reservation which left us with no choice of changing seats"
Pros: "No information given about the 90' delay"
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)."
Pros: "staff were friendly."
Cons: "my flight was cancelled without letting me know the reason, although they offered me another flight (two hours later) but still clear reason should be mentioned. also seat was broken."
Pros: "i had 5 hours lay over at Jeddah airport from midnight to early morning, there wasn't even bench to sit on. When I asked where shall we stay, the guy on boarding area showed me the floor. Also they transport passengers with outdoor bus that i don't have experience in other air ports. The airplane was also accessed outdoor and you have to climb steep lander. VERY INCONVENIENT IN EVERY ASPECT. I WILL NEVER USE THIS AIRLINE AND THE Jeddah CONNECTION NO MATTER IT IS CHEAPER. IT DOESN'T QUALIFY MODERN AVIATION. THE BOARDING STAFF WERE ALSO UNFRIENDLY. BAD EXPERIENCE. I CAUGHT COLD BECAUSE OF STAYING 5 HRS ON THE FLOOR."
Cons: "HOSTESSES WERE FRIENDLY."
