Flew London Heathrow to Doha and Bahrain. Very cheap flights. Good value for money. Not the best airline we have ever used but great for the price.

Its absolutely ridiculous customer service on the part of Gulf air. Bahrain does not accept any visa applications without the ticket to Bahrain and I responded to Gulf air for a cancellation a month prior to my departure since that's the earliest you can apply for a visa. They rejected my refund application saying that it is my duty to...

The flight departed on time in Heathrow and the connection in Manama was only 40mins and it went well. The airline crew are well mannered and provide a good service as per the airline provision. No issues to and fro during the flight and the customer service received in Dubai is good.

Gulf Air is an average airline with mostly ageing planes together with a few new ones. Sometimes the food is mediocre to poor (undercooked). If you are lucky you will get good service in a clean and new plane. But you have to be wary of poor service and old planes on some legs of your journey. The old planes...

My seat was broken so while I could not...
