"I would say that the seat was exceptional"

(United Kingdom)

Trip Verified | I have chosen to give this airline an 8/10 review because the product was exceptional and the soft product, whilst still very good, is a bit underwhelming. I boarded the plane and was warmly welcomed by the crew as they pointed to my seat, 2D. They promptly served a variety of pre-departure beverages from which I choose the fresh orange juice. Quality Arabic coffee was also served at this time. hot and cold towels were also distributed and the crew came round to ask for our meal choices. Once the plane had finished refueling, we began to take off for Bahrain. Soon after reaching the cruising altitude, I began to watch a movie and starters were served. Unfortunately, the cabin crew gave me the wrong starter. Upon bringing it up to them, they gave a rather sincere apology and gave me the correct starter of a simple yet tasty mozzarella salad. After that, mains were served and I got a rich chicken à la king with apple juice to drink. There was a noticeable gap in service between mains and desserts but I eventually got my dessert of a chocolate cake with tea. Soon after, I went to sleep after reminding the crew to wake me up for breakfast. I might have slept too deeply because the crew couldn't wake me up but fortunately, they still had breakfast available but it was not something to write home about. There was a selection of dry pastries which were worse than my economy meal. Soon after that we landed in Bahrain Airport. Overall I would say that the seat was exceptional but the food could be better in some way. Also, the crew did an exceptional job and I can understand why they left me to sleep.

"clean and well presented"

(United Kingdom)

Not Verified | Aircraft was clean and well presented with good finishes on the seats. The IFE was very large and had no remote. Tray table was adjustable and convenient. Legroom was enormous, with no IFE box under the seat. There is a universal power port between two seats and a USB port under the IFE. The cradle recline was amazing, pillow and blanket comfortable. The meal was exceptional.

"this row does not recline"

(United Arab Emirates)

Trip Verified | I was seated in rows 11 for both return trips. I chose this seat because it is near the emergency exits and only have two seats. Seats on this row does not recline. Gulf air does not provide headsets for short flights so you have to use your own headset if you like to use their inflight entertainment. Movies are a little bit outdated. Enough legroom.

"very bland looking cabin and seat"

(United Kingdom)

A very bland looking cabin and seat. Blue leather type seat and just by looking at the seat you can tell it was going to be hard and offer little comfort. Touchscreen TV in the rear of the seat in front which is fine, when it works. The screen has no tilt function so reclined viewing is an issue. Leg room is ok for someone who is 5ft 8". I wouldnt like to try it being anything over 6ft. The seat is ok for the first couple of hours but becomes very uncomfortable and is difficult to get any sleep in. Seat reclines however sometimes springs back up without warning. I would compare the comfort to that of Easyjet. Fine for an hour or two but not for longhaul. Gulf Air A320 seat is far far more comfortable.
