"make you feel very welcome"

(Saudi Arabia)

Having been to all 3 new Alfursan lounges (Riyadh, Jeddah, and Dammam), I can say that there has been a massive improvement in Saudia's lounge game. Jeddah's Alfursan is quiet small and not as great as Riyadh or Dammam, mostly due to the lack of space. The food quality is excellent in all 3 lounges, as well as the beverages on offer. Staff make you feel very welcome and are always willing to help.

"provided a welcome refuge"

(United Kingdom)

Jeddah Airport is what I would expect hell to be like - so taking this into account, the lounge provided a welcome refuge. Less glitzy than Heathrow but plenty of seats, a good selection of food (possibly better than heathrow), clean, staff continually clearing away rubbish and dishes and an audible flight announcement.

"would enjoy another four hour layover there"

(United States)

I was greeted by a friendly staff. There was a very tasty and extensive western and mid-eastern food selection and many hot and cold beverages. Beef tenderloin was dry. Frequent table bussing. There was free WiFi that worked fine. Air conditioning was comfortable as was seating. I would enjoy another four hour layover there.

"simply disappointing"

(Saudi Arabia)

Simply disappointing. I was really frustrated by the computer facility and the internet connection. After having a look at the food presented I simply grabbed a coffee and cake from the Cinnabon Cafe opposite the lounge. It just looked so dull.

"lounges in Dammam are horrible"

(Saudi Arabia)

The lounges in Dammam are horrible and it would rank it the worst I have ever seen. I do not understand why Skyteam is not setting minimum standards for business class lounges as the Saudia lounges have no international standard as far as I am concerned.

"has the basics but very little"

(United Kingdom)

Very poor. Has the basics but very little. Screens telling you of departure times and gates are in Arabic then 5 seconds in English. Even if it was in English it would be pointless because they put your gate up about 10 mins before it opens then everyone runs and form a massive queue from the front. I waited for 45 mins in a queue because flight was delayed and they never opened gate. When I got to the front they said that it was for a different flight and then I had to go to the back of another queue. Disgrace is too good a word for this airport. I have travelled here on and off maybe 5 times in past 18 months and still the same.

"quite spacious"

(United Kingdom)

Lounge easy to find (just beyond the duty free shop after security). Quite spacious with a good selection of hot and cold food and drinks. The food was a mixture of continental and Arabic which all tasted nice! A nice touch was the arabic coffee and dates. Three large screen LCD tv's within the lounge and free internet usage. Seating area has a selection of small tables and large leather sofas.
