The women on our flight departing Ammam were physically full body hand searched numerous times. This was performed in a separate cubicle and every time they discovered another item (such as money belt, credit cards, etc.) they made us take the valuable item over to the conveyer belt which was completely out of our sight and then return to begin the search over again.
Other passengers complained their valuables had been stolen since they were out of sight and in a jumble of many peoples' belongings.
When I protested...I was told this was at the request of the US government.
I will never fly out of the Jordan airport again. If I ever feel the necessity of visiting Jordan (which I doubt) I will return to the place of origin and deal with another country.
