The demand is certainly there, with decent competition from Saudia, NAS, and Air Arabia to SHJ. This is a cash cow for EK and they don't try particularly hard. Having flown them all, I'd put EK in 4th place for quality

Riyadh’s current double daily service will be boosted to 17 weekly flights with the additional frequency operating each Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday
