I fly with Saudi Arabian every month since begin of August 2004, between Switzerland and southern India and vice versa. On November 26-27 I flew GVA
-MAA(Chennai or Madras). To my great satisfaction they are using now a 777-200 between Saudi Arabia and Chennai(Madras), just like between Switzerland and Saudi Arabia.
I am very satisfied with the planes, the service, and the nice experiences I am doing evrytime with the FAs, even once with the Captain of a 747 who was stretching his legs on the upper deck in guest class.
I am satisfied too with the way I am treated in the airports of JED
, during my transits, and in GVA
or MAA during my departures.
I have joined now Alfursan miles program, and as a new member I am already allowed to a 40 Kg luggage.
For me its a perfect, friendly and cheap way to fly between Switzerland and southern India, as I have to live alternately one month in Switzerland and one month in India for family and professional reasons.
Of course there is no alcohol on board and you are not allowed to transit in Saudi Arabia with alcohol in your hand luggage ( it will be destroyed ). But there is more in life than alcohol.
I have already done a flight trip with Saudi Airlines and will do one again future and will not miss to include photos for you full satisfaction.
In conclusion I am happy to tell that for me Saudi Airlines has become a Major Operator between Europe and Asia.
All the best and Cheers. Kilavoud.
