I was due to board a Saudi air flt from Amman to Jeddah enroute BLR on may  20 2016( friday).  When I arrived at airport I was told the flight already left at 4 pm my ticket was for subsequent flt at 9pm.  after  2 hours of phone calls and pleading, I was told I could board the 9 pm flt.


But ticket machine was not working.  one passenger  came soon after  and said something in arabic, and they produced a boarding pass from somewhere and gave him(obviously mine with name changed).  5 minutes before 9 pm I was told permission was given for me to board, but plane already left terminal.


Now what  to do?  I had to cool my heels in  Amman for two days because they have holiday Fri-Sat.  By grace of Allah I got a ticket for 22 May and got on the plane.  In Jeddah my bag was offloaded because the baggage was booked only upto Jeddah.  I did not have a visa and had to go to the next terminal to catch the outbound connecting flt.  after waiting in a cabin for 2 hours I was told to go thru a door with a separate xray scanner and found it connected to the departure terminal without having to go thru Immigration.


I was escorted by two officials and told to wait.  An empty bus came after  20 mts . and took me to the next terminal,  There the bus waited as some VIP had come in a convoy and was getting into the terminal. After they finished  their getting in I was told to go in. The plane was full of people returning from Umrah returning to  BLR.


On landing at BLR I waited two hrs searching for my luggage amidst ZamZam water cartons. After a long wait I made a missing luggage complaint.


There was a response after one week from Saudi Air telling me the luggage was at Jeddah, and why I did not collect it?


HA HA. ! This is a well thought out scam to catch unsuspecting travelers to pay up in hotel or bribes or whatnot.  I am still awaiting compensation from them.
