On an hour long flight, flyers would like to use the entertainment system / see the flight course on the map but instead you're bothered with adverts every two minutes - why! Please stop this!

It was half term holidays, and by chance I managed to get me and my family some cheap return flights to Dubai from London Heathrow. As soon as I saw the price, I had to book the tickets. I cant remember flying with Gulf before, so I had my reservations. However, for what you get, it was very good value...

This was my first time flying with Gulf Air! I was very disappointed from the time I stepped on the aircraft. The stewards are the unfriendliest lot I have ever come across in all my travels across continents over the years. The inflight entertainment is outdated and may need an upgrade! Which also didn't work as it came with a...

Their food service however continued and continued and they actually dimmed the lights (still at 50%!) only 3 (three!) hours after take off. To switch them on again 2...

I always fly Gulf Air to Thailand in Falcon Gold class (Business) and the flight and service does really get better & better. The lounges In London & Bahrain are excellent, but it’s on board where it really gets good. I have reviewed the Apex Suite before, but on this trip we even had the new Boeing 787 on the...

We had taken flight GF 79 from Bahrain to Cairo on the 14th Oct. The flight departed on time and reached on time. We had booked vegetarian meal which was very good. Leg space was sufficient to stretch your legs and crew was polite and useful. In flight entertainment had variety of channels. Overall enjoyed our flight and will fly...
