GulfAir at this Point


I have heard horror stories of Gulf Air and I wanted to avoid a horror story of my own, but through fate I had no choice but to go on this airline or on Kuwait Airways, reluctantly I went with Gulf Air and I though I would try my luck.


The First plane from Kuwait to Bahrain it felt like a plane that was stuck in the 70s and 80s, and hasn’t been upgraded since then. From I remember Gulf Air was owned by multiple companies and countries so it had no direction and everyone was trying to fill their pockets as fast as possible, only recently has it been bought out by the Bahrain Government and there has been improvements. I have to say even though the plane was old the service was good and the people were courteous.


The lounge was nice and very relaxing, it isn’t the newest but still nice. This is my first time to land in Bahrain Airport, I’m used to driving Bahrain, and it just doesn’t feel like an Airport, it feels more like an old shopping mall because of all the carpeting a some parts which have low ceilings.


Then the flight from Bahrain to Egypt was another story, the plane was very nice with upgraded interiors with really good service. The colors aren’t to my taste, but thats something on a personal level, but I think Kuwait Airways needs an attitude adjustment and they can learn what good service is from Gulf Air.

  1. looks pretty clean in the inside.

  2. It is very nice when you take fptps of the business class cabin, my recent flights with gulf air in all classes have been close to disastrous.

    Don’t think this airline is going anywhere and in my opinion Kuwait airways is no reference it does not even exist in my dictionary.


  3. ” Kuwait Airways needs an attitude adjustment.”
    You have hit the nail on its head – I couldn’t have said it
    better myself.
    Not just the staff attitude is itching for an overhaul but what I also find truly lacking in KU cabin crew is staff diversity and a certain cosmopolitan flavor; one which is there with most other regional carriers.
    I am glad they have cleared Jet Airways flights to Kuwait. It is only a question of when before the decks are cleared for Kingfisher Airlines and between them, cabin service will be revolutionized to a higher plane.

  4. KWT23: Yup, pretty clean!

    eshda3wa: Needs a major overhaul!

    Fay: I thought it was going to be disastorous, but I was told they were very nice which was the case, what happened in your case?

    The Blog Whisperer: I agree with you 100%! They lack diversity and they are very full of themselves, they need some changes to take place to really affect them!!
