just to give you more of an insight into Saudi Airlines as I was based there for 3 months.
Jeddah isnt so bad once you live there you kind of adjust to life there, you do have to wear an abaya and headscarf ( however we didnt wear them always in the souk). There is a big Indonesian and Phillipino community.
Speaking to Indonesian crew, some of them are based in Jakarta, and have to live in Jeddah maybe 5 times in a month. The acccommodation is shared bedrooms so alot of crew live with friends ( 2 girls to a room).
Girls can only get to a certain point in seniority they will never become Pursers or Cabin Seniors as this is for men only, so if you are prepared to go up the ranks this wont happen.
They do not recruit Western European cabin crew. Due to accommodation and requirements however do take crew from Eastern Europe and further afield.
I hope this gives a little more insight into SAA.
