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 or

l just know that they have hade so much money
problem that they wont make it if they get in to troble again. Its ownd by a rich shejk today and he hase lost
lots of money. GulfAir was big during the time Emirates and other gulf airlines didt operate, they hade only Saudia to compit with !

They have almoust as good service as Saudia.

Hi Ansett767.

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.
