Saudi Arabia's national airline to introduce gender segregation

Saudi Arabia's national airline is allegedly planning to separate male and female passengers on its flights, in accordance to strict rules enforced by the Gulf kingdom.

Gulf media report that Saudia will keep men and women segregated onboard, unless they are close relatives.

The move follows a spate of complaints from male fliers unwilling to allow other males to sit next to their wives and other female passengers.

1. That's bad news and good news, I guess.

The bad news:

"Gulf media report that Saudia will keep men and women segregated onboard, unless they are close relatives."

The good news:

ALL Saudi's are close relatives. Am I right or what? Thanks...I'll be here all week, and don't forget to tip your waiter.

4. sure tell it to someone else.

I was a ranger, delta, and a trainer for several different skills. I spent time living in the middle east and training some of their military personnel. All I can tell you is that I would go back to israel in a heartbeat, but I will never set foot in the rest of the middle east again. There is one exception to that. I'm taking the girls to see the valley of the kings either this summer or next. but we will not spend a night there or go anywhere else in Egypt. We will get off the cruise ship, take the tour, and get back on the boat.
