There is ton's of demand between Bahrain and the UAE. GCC nationals can travel freely between these countries (plenty of business to do, or just shopping ) and Western expats can get visas on arrival - many living in Bahrain do head to Dubai on weekends since it is much more lively there.
Flying in the middle seat of coach is much better than not flying at all!

The route's extremely dense, and quite popular. flydubai will most likely force other airlines to be competitive, but remember that this will most likely affect th LCCs only. GF and EK charge a premium on the route, and it's full of transiting pax. Not sure about the yields, but I imagine those feeders are necessary to make longhaul ops work, especially for GF.
