Jeddah is a dozen times worse than Dubai at the best of times...and right now is obviously not one of those times.:)

I once spent 6 hours at Jeddah airport standing in the middle of a mob that could not move and was not allowed to progress through immigration.
Surrounded by Haj pilgrims and poor little kids who couldn't make it to the loos in time, it was something that I never want to experience again.

My thoughts exactly. The Police are not exactly helpful either, more like goatherders. As for the toilets, they are horrible to say the least.
