Those who get greatly disturbed by that which you note above would need to avoid flying SkyTeam, Star Alliance and Oneworld alliance carriers as there isn't a flag carrier amongst them whose government hasn't in some form sponsored flagrant human rights abuses and is free of murky governmental connections to terrorist organizations. Even the Scandinavian and Swiss flag carriers fly the flags of their respective government which are not free of sponsoring human rights abuses and having murky governmental connections to terrorist organizations.

Saudi Arabia is but a client state of the US in so many ways -- it just happens to be a US satellite whose royal family gets special privileges for making it so for the US and the US's favorites.
