Security is amazing, and they will let you strip to your boxer shorts in public to attempt to get through the metal detector without it beeping. - Ade

January 2015 - Better replace any cravings for alcohol with chocolate. A plenitude of those stores, even those Kinder Easter egg things, though its Christian and they do not even know it. As for sleep - good luck. Not a chair to crawl under even if you smuggle stuff to raise a buzz. Would not recommend that either - smell a whiff on you and its the cavalry. Dinky airport, shops over priced and a closet for a smoking room. Yeah, I am still politically incorrect and smoke heinous cigarettes. Anyway, I digress, the airport in Riyadh is clean as a baby's bottom after yore mother with baby powder and ever'thin', but you really, seriously, do not, can not sleep there. Make sure you have a pick up - and be wary - the religious police might catch ya.
