Heathrow - King Khaled Intl ( LHR - RUH )
3.0 /5
Date 2018-05-10 City Uk Age 51-70 Class Economy

From London the flight was fine. But the rest of three flight were were not good. Even though at the check in Di requested to have the seat with ladies. But on flights there were men sitting next to me and as the seat are very small. It was very uncomfortable when person to me were sleeping and taking over some part of my seat. I complained but nothing was done. I don't think I will choose this airline in future unless I don't have any other better choice. I think airline should listen to passengers requests

King Khaled Intl - Seeb ( RUH - MCT )
2.0 /5
Date 2018-02-12 City Europe Age 51-70 Class Economy

First plane old and ingrained dirty. On time. Second plane newer with no legroom. Staff pleasant. Food identical both journeys. Second plane late, no apology, they didn't care. Unable to check-in online as it was booked as Saudia but it was actually Oman Air I flew. Neither airline recognised the booking so no online alerts or check-in availability. Unacceptable. I joined family from London. I flew from Riyadh. They paid ?300 return, I paid a daylight robbery ?240.
