The most surprising thing is the lack of notice - this coming weekend will be Fri-Sat, not Thur-Fri.............

Whilst I'm not a huge fan of KSA, I love this one...they want to change the working week (makes sense economically) so they do it almost instantly. No messing around.

I've been told it is a three day weekend - Thurs-Saturday, which I'm praying for (this will mean I don't get the Saturday morning flight to Riyadh and miss the second Lions test).

in effect on 29th June which is Sat so yep a 3-day weekend - I'd have thought they'd change it midweek but they must be feeling generous with Ramadam around the corner

not too bothered either way as long as I get two days off , the only thing that is annoying is that I miss out on the 3 day weekend as I'm off to the UK for my summer holidays tomorrow !
Still, UK holiday / 3 day Saudi weekend ?? not a difficult choice.
