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.

ewww. that reminds me of the time when I had to spend some quality time with my head down the shitter in the old terminal of Cairo airport after a long night on the piss. Grim beyond belief.
