Good flight as usual. Excellent crew. Very smooth take off and landing. Too much turbulance due to the cold weather. We are happy that Gulf Air is trying its best to fly on time. Food needs to be improved. Thanks.

Though would try out their new 787 Dreamliner fleet but believe me they’re like the poorest spec which Boeing offer. During flight the temperature of the cabin was hot; no individual controls above each seat. Food and service standard not great. I’d stick to Emirates.

Once upon a time Gulf Air was the team leader in the Middle East... but after a long gap, I chose Gulf Air for my travel from Muscat to Trivandrum via Bahrain.... to be honest, I was not much impressed with the services on board....it was a night flight from Muscat to Bahrain and a red-eye flight from Bahrain to...

A quick flight that left on time. The in-service meal looked decent (we ate in the lounge so we weren't hungry) and the in-flight entertainment was excellent. Lots of great shows and movies to pass the 2-hour 15-minute flight.

Gulf Air appears to have decided to use its new 787 for the MNL-BHR (GF155) route, and the Apex seats in the business cabin were quite good. It turned out that this was the only thing positive about the flight, however. The FAs seemed nice enough but were not as attentive as one would expect. The food was definitely not...

Checkin is ok in Paris but in Kuwait is disaster. The A320ER are new but the seats are very incomfortable for 7 hours flight. The service could be improved by going around with water during the flight. Entertainement is below any other airline from the region who is not a low cost. paid for more comfort seats, so what are...

An uneventful flight, staff is responsive and friendly but not as attentive as on other Gulf airlines. Food was ok. Not a great choice. Entertainment adequate. Lots of earphones broken. Pilot however excellent, great flight and marvelous landing. Plane clean. Luggage allowance very good, pricing good. I’d fly them again - no problem.
