Flight would have a connection at Bahrain and The type of people that normally travel thru this Airline from Delhi to Bahrain is a problem. It felt a bit uncomfortable to travel till Bahrain. From Bahrain to Paris it was ok. Food is not good.

Brand new Boeing 787-9 operated for the first time on London route by Gulf Air. Everything looks perfect, quiet, smooth, comfort, big screen, excellent seats and lovely food. The flight departed and arrived on time with very friendly crew. Congratulations Gulf Air for excellent choice of aircraft and it’s interior design, well done.

Gulf air has to review the way they run the business. Crafts need upgrading, service on board has to be looked at carefully. The menu is the same since I started using this airline, maybe for 7 years. Bahrain deserves a world class airline, meet the challenge.

Poor service – The Cabin Crew stewardess (Philippino lady) did not serve me my meal when I requested for it. I overslept and when I woke up I requested for my meal from the cabin crew but the lady ignored...

I doubt there is a better airline flying today with regard to customer care! From checking in to disembarkation the service was excellent. In 10 months of traveling I was bumped up ot business twice, when i requested extra leg room if possible it was granted 40% of the time at no extra cost. One of my colleagues requested an...

A great option to choose for this sector.. With five daily flights per day.. Can't wait for the new aircraft to be used on these sectors and others.. Today's flight took off ten minutes before take off time and arrived twenty minutes early..

The whole setup somehow gives a vintage feel - in fact took me 25 years back when I last flew Gulf Air. Nothing seems to have changed since then . With a very basic entertainment system and a choice of handful of old movies , a very basic selection of food - same goes for the drinks - you might...

Just being on the Karachi Airport earlier than couple of hours waiting, and I got bumped up to first class without any effort. So more than couple...

Once again, brilliant food and drink service on board, seat comfort was perfectly acceptable. Only downside is still the lack of quality in the in flight entertainment. But for value for money this airline can't be beaten for business class
