The inbound leg was already reviewed. However, the return leg was also pretty good as I flew back from ISB to VIE. The 77W on return leg was HY-AK25, a relatively newer one than the one I flew on inbound. This plane had working IFE with good content although I am never intrigued by IFE aboard planes. WIFI was working...

Saudia never runs on time. We were waiting for our flight for 3 hours to arrive. Saudia strip searched each individual before getting on plane. Handbags had to checked again, although checked before. Seats on the plane were uncomfortable. I had to request for a blanket several times. The plane was cold with the extensive use of air conditioning. Food...

Well, didn’t really have big expectations before flight - heard mixed reviews. First flight from Dhaka-Riyadh was comfortable - got free upgrade to Business class. Next one JFK was not bad either. Seats are comfy, standard legspace, adequate foods, they dont serve alcohol (Just water, sodas and Juices). Staffs were friendly (3.5/5). Well, like other first line air dont expect...

First time flying this airline, was not sure what to expect, due to my thoughts being mostly on the very long flight we was about to endure. However, once airborne, I was pleasantly surprise by the warm and friendly service provided, the staff was excellent, the food was very good. Soon all my anxiety was melted away and I was...

This can be considered a quick bus ride ... 1 hour 20 minutes between Dubai and Riyadh ... it's a quick commute for many travellers, and (just like me) a lot of people do this weekly. Comfortable seats, with more legroom than most other Gulf carriers, IFE with enough to entertain, in-flight WiFi, quick meal (if you really want to)...
