Wow Gulf Air are really repositioning themselves as a regional carrier aren't they? Given the competition (and deep pockets) with the likes of Emirates, Qatar and Etihad, I suppose it makes sounds business sense for GF to fill this niche. Just sad to see the Golden Falcon in such a sorry state in comparison to what it was in the 70s and 80s. GF really was the original EK (or QR/EY for that matter).
