Is the wifi code they email you valid for both legs, or only one or the other?

Maybe it was obvious, but just for additional information, there is no shower room for women in Alfursan lounge (South terminal), only for men.

Will this change in the new terminal? My guess is 50/50!

Won’t you just end up with more miles and XP? As well as compensation?

That's not a terrible route. More XPs. However yes, 35 min won't work due to MCT.

Not under EC261 from ATH, if it's at least two weeks to his departure.

This is for November flights. no compensation of course which is logical.
Going to call them tomorrow as the ATH-JED flight isn't daily either. actually i prefer to fly 2 days earlier anyway so lets see if they can do that.
I have ATH-JED-RUH-(35 min problem)-CAN - i want this to change ATH-JED and the JED-CAN flight.
on the way back it's CAN-RUH-JED-ATH i want them to remove the RUH-JED here as I'll drive that as well.

fingers crossed that will all work.

UPDATE ON MY TRY TO CHANGE MY INVOLUNTARY CHANGE.

no way to change! at least NOT to Guanzhou China as there is NO availability due to corona virus.
they simply cancelled ALL inventory. also in google flights i cannot see ANY flights JED-CAN or RUH-CAN from now until as far out as i can see. even Economy nothing.

i have to wait 4-6 weeks and check again as this is for November only.

Your plan is to do one way car rentals? I assume you've taken into account the distance from Riyadh to Jeddah by road? It's not exactly short.

Folks, you may notice that a couple of posts have disappeared. Let me remind you of the range of topics appropriate for this thread. You’re welcome to discuss the fare, SV product, layover, visa, and so on. Incendiary, racist rhetoric, however, is not welcome.

Does anyone already flown in the opposite direction (KUL / CGK - ATH)? Does the lounge work in the new terminal and is it possible to get there at night?

Now I can answer ))
Yes it works. There are no showers at all. And it's too cold inside. But it still better than South terminal. Only 10-12 passengers here right now, good variety of appetizers, several hot dishes. Chairs could be used for sleeping...)
of course it should be much better...but it is ok.

Hi,

The best destination for a XP run is MNL right ? I am not seeing other destinations with 36XP instead of 30XP.
