    It is a major project with the objective of expanding the mataf at ground floor level and to link the existing building to the nearly completed extension next to Bab al Umra street (which has now gone). Project expected to last for two years.
    They have contingency plans for Ramadan and haj period.

    Indeed, lots of planes hanging around whispering to each other whose turn it is to take these boring pilgrims home?

    I honestly think their main priority should be customer service at the airports and having extra staff. It's such ashame how the airport is in such a shambles from a logistics point of view.

    I admit to not being a frequent flyer there but i've heard about a lot of horror stories. It's a good thing most of us are fairly patient people and are Muslims in the state of ihram, otherwise it maybe a different story.

    That is wishful thinking. They will never improve anything for customer relations.They simply dont understand it themselves nor is there any appetite, in them, to learn it leave alone implement it.

    Outside of the Ministry of Haj's Office is the "motto" خدمة الحجاج صرف لنا

    Translated, it means "To serve the pilgrims is our pleasure"

    I suggested to my mutawwif that it would be far more appropriate if the motto reads as " زحمة الحجاج صرف لنا" meaning "To harass the pilgrims is our pleasure".

    .....or maybe its just me!? i don't know..! :P

    In Ramadan a clean and basic hotel, in Makkah, especially in the last ten days will cost you both arms and legs.
