Hello everyone. In case you need options for flight out, Lufthansa has announced more flights for August. These are on Aug 2, 9, 16, 23, 30. Book direct with the airline. I took this option early July. Very easy. Taxi direct to RYD airport. Journey time about 3.5 hours from DH. If u go business you can get free use of the excellent lounge in Frankfurt while you wait for connection. Food options including good German beer and great pretzels with salami among other things. Even if you economy you can pay to use the lounge. Not expensive and highly recommended. Also Saudi’s flights to Paris and Frankfurt July 29. So heaps of options. Safe travels.

KLM has many departures from DMM to AMS, usually via Kuwait. From AMS you can get anywhere. No need to taxi to Riyad.
It is not the same company you retired from
More flights announced including some direct to USA with Saudia plus all the LH ones via Frankfurt so plenty of options.
Things have changed my friend
Getting ticket money and doing your own thing has always been best option for me when I worked there for repat. That way you can do what suits u best. Same when leaving I remember too.
I retired in 2017 and used Lufthansa. The Company made all the arrangements. Has this benefit been rescinded? Why isn’t the Company taking care of this for the employees?
