Gulf Air customer review

(United States)

Frankfurt to Bahrain Bahrain to Kathmandu return. Economy class inflight entertainment system was limited and old fashioned. Blurry monitor and old remote with limited options. Food quality was awful limited wines and soft drinks during 7 hr flight. Chicken meal and pasta when I asked for chicken they said pasta was only my option.

CPH-BAH-BKK. The airline is new to Copenhagen; thus they have been selling promotional tickets. First leg was an A321 operated by Privatair but dressed in Gulf Air colours. Aircraft only 25% full. Service was excellent: 3 meal options (in fact reduced to two due to low loading of passengers). Free and constant flow of drinks if asked for one was mostly offered two. Wines of lower quality only tolerable. Very good service excellent IFE lots of movies. BAH-BKK: A330. Noisy plane 75% full but still nice caring service. Good food 3 options again. I rejected the red wine and the FA brought me a glass of a much better wine from the Business Class section. In the morning they let me sleep instead of giving me breakfast which I was pleased with.

LHR-BAH-KTM. Nice trip with no delays. Food was ok from LHR-BAH with some western style dishes. To KTM food was more Asian which was nice with plenty of drinks rounds. When asked for more legroom I got an upgrade to Business class. BAH aircraft was A330 which looked nice and new. To KTM we flew an A340 which was tired and worn out.

KBL-BAH-CDG-BOS (code share w/AA) and BOS (code share w/AA) LHR-BAH-KBL. In short GF offers and delivers excellent value for money. On the flight from Kabul to BAH the Arabic lamb stew and tabuleh salad were nothing short of excellent and the full open bar service is generous as nearly unlimited rounds are offered. Transiting BAH is very easy and GF's arrangement with Aeroports de Paris is such that it is assigned gates at CDG that are immediately adjacent to its code-share partner AA so that transit experience is seamless as well. At LHR a change of terminal is required but ground personnel are very helpful. All in all a very good travel experience with Gulf Air.

LHR-BAH BAH-CMB. First leg on A330 not bad service. Crew worked hard and were very polite. Did not have food so cannot comment on taste. Lady sitting next to me had about 3 pieces of baggage with her. And she held onto it during the course of the flight. Entertainment not the latest. 2nd leg on A320 again very hardworking crew. I found crew were pleasant and ready to help. Food was poor and bland on this sector. Plenty of juice rounds which was nice but entertainment was old. All flights on time.

DOH-BAH-MXP return in May excellent cabin crew quality of food was also good (quantity is not) portable entertainment system which worked fine but without to many options both legs departures and arrivals were on time. Falcon Gold Lounge in Bahrain was a little bed cramped but fine for 2 hours connection flight.

Paris-Kuala Lumpur Economy class. One-way fare was the cheapest among airlines for last minute booking as cheap as AirAsiaX. Flight on time check in at CDG quick. Transit at the Bahrain hassle free. Seat quite comfortable passengers were provided with eye mask and socks. Inflight entertainment was OK around 20 video channels on 6.5" LCD screen. Inflight meals was average. Cabin crew quite attentive and friendly.

DXB-BAH-LHR. Onboard service adequate between BAH-LHR. IFE A330 outdated and frequently freezing. Been flying regularly with Gulf Air since early nineties. The service has certainly dipped in standards since then. They have a lot of room for improvement if they are to compete with the other carriers of the Gulf. Certainly rank as a 3 star carrier. LHR-BAH-DXB once again service pretty much average no IFE working on whole A330 flight to BAH. Staff were helpful and polite aircraft looking very tired and dilapidated.

London to Colombo via Bahrain. The staff were friendly food nothing special beverage selection was good. There was a problem with my seat on the first journey from London to Bahrain and I could not recline which was an annoyance. The entertainment system was not very good - a very old system. On the second journey however I got a free upgrade to Business class the service was very good. They really to cater to every need that you have in business class. The aircraft on first journey was an A330 and a nice aircraft Bahrain to Colombo an A320 very small.

Was supposed to be flying with Gulf Air from Isfahan to London via Bahrain. Gulf cancelled the flight and refused to make alternative arrangements. I won't be flying with them again.
