Pros: "The passenger sitting next to me."
Cons: "Some passengers switched their seats so when I arrived I realized my seat was taken. The crew member simply told me to take another seat. Even though I was willing to give up my original seat, I expected better attitude and more responsibility from the cabin crew including an apology."
Pros: "I was well informed about my schedule and flight changes. The staff was co operating and hospitable. Over all it was a good experience."
Cons: "The flight back from Dhaka to JFK had an extended 1.5 hour delay at Riyadh. And I did not get anything from the airlines. It was troublesome when the delay was on top of actual 3 hours lay over."
Cons: "Flight was late Flight was unsafe. People got up to access cabin luggage while plane was taxiing nobody intervened. Flight was noisy."
Cons: "Airline boarding pass / check in counter behavior is unacceptable. They have very poor knowledge how to handle domestic to international flight passenger. Jeddah counter representative even don't know domestic and international terminal are different location in Ryadh; they even don't know passenger has to collect luggage and go to international terminal for final destination. As per Jeddah airlines counter supervisor, domestic and internation terminals are in same location whereas in reality we need to go with a bus. original flight was 4 hours connecting time but airlines changed to 2 hours. We are lucky that we don't missed our flight because we were 1 minutes late to close check in / collect boarding pass; as per counter representative. one of the biggest issue was as follows: when we went to Jeddah counter, we have requested for both boarding pass (Jeddah to Ryadh to JFK) including baggage to be collected to JFK; unfortunate duty supervisor behavior was unacceptable. He was very rood. He was repeating same word and telling "do you understand english" same word again and again with aggressive mood whereas he is very poor in english."
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: "The flight was smooth. The take off and the landing was also excellent"
Cons: "The delay. Boarding"
Pros: "Saudi terminal is one of the worst terminals I've been in. Bathroom is horrendous"
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: "Also, they do not have any compensation or do nothing to deal with my trouble"
Pros: "I like the way they treat their customers in every way possible. Very clean seats, inside the plane and every where in plane."

I couldn't get her name. Mohammed"
