Flew Gulf Air few years back. Their service is good compared to other airlines such as emirates. Flew on their A340. On the Paris route they use an A330 i think which has PTV's in economy, although this could change at any time. The A340 and 767-300 dont have PTV's in economy though.

BTW, their FA's are are absolutely gorgeous!!!!


In Arsene we trust!!

*I have flown Gulf Air a lot. I would have to say that the inflight service is good on long haul routes. The A340's and B767 are very worn though and they look older than what they really are but the A330's are great The PTV's in Business and First class are also bigger and better than the ones on the A340 and the B767. One thing i would like to warn you about Gulf Air are delays. Also service on short haul - medium haul is not as good as Emirates or Qatar. But for your sector i think you will have a postive experience

*The transit in Abu Dhabi and Bahrain is good and bahrain has great new Duty Free even bigger and better than the old one.

I flew Gulf Air in Aug. 2000 from LHR to Bahrain and back. There A330's are wonderful. There is plenty of leg room. The PTV's have a lot of programming on them. The food is good, just don't expect any pork products. They had very good wine in Economy. They also serve fresh fruit to economy passengers.

Bahrain airport is a nice facility. It is not too big, but there is plenty to do there during a lay-over.

I flew Gulf Air to Karachi in Y class and I must say that the service is exceptional as soon as you board the aircraft. The cabin crew are warm and friendly and provide a good level of customer service. The food is brilliant, although there is only a limited choice on the menu, between fish and meat. A good selection though, for economy class standards - fresh salad, fruit cocktail and chocolate mousse are just few of the desserts served. You are given lots of it as well! The inflight entertainment is probably one of the best around, matching the same standards as rivals Emirates. Touch screen PTV in every seat with inflight phones. Good variety of audio channels very good leg room of 34 inches in Economy.

I wouldn't mind flying Gulf Air just to get a menu. Never had that before. Smile
