I flew GF last year Singapore-Abu Dhabi-Singapore in economy class. They were okay, but no where as good as Emirates are. They flew a cramped B767 on the way there, but on return it was an A340. Food was okay. I think I saw PTVs in Business Class. Most of their fares are really cheap. They are trying to compete with Emirates head on. Nevertheless, they are worth a try. They do have a web site, i think it is www.gulfair.co or www.gulf-air.co

My personall feeling about Gulf Air is that they are quite nice. Perhaps not so good has the real classic airlines ( they are quite new in the business ) but they carry on. I flew with them in 80/09/04 with the good old L1011-100 A40-TW from Amsterdam to London early in the morning and we had a full breakfast for a 40 minutes ride. The funny thing on that flight was 95% of the people was arab and most of the crew or was european or asian, so it was quite an experience.
