Saudi Airlines to pay SR 61,600

Saudi Airlines will compensate a family which suffered a flight delay of 21 hours with SR 61,600 on a Jeddah-New York flight for the psychological and financial harm.

Many people do not know about the rights of airline passengers in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, they do not claim any compensation for the flight delay or any other inconvenience.

  • Saudi Airlines reviewed their case and refused to compensate.
  • The family hired a lawyer.
  • The lawyer filed a legal suit against Saudi Airlines.
  • The Saudi court gave the verdict in the favor of the family.
