From the time we waited in line at the check-in station to the time of boarding the aircraft, the service personnel were so very courteous and helpful. They were friendly and very professional and made sure that I was well taken care of when seated on the aircraft. There was a choice of meals and since the flight was late...

Hey, what can you expect from an economy class ticket... However, the free food makes up for the older planes and cramped seats. Another plus is that they have free entertainment to watch and listen to on your flight. Only downside to that is they outlet for the headphones are made to only be used by the airline's cheap headsets....

Delay upon delay with no explanation, information or apologies! Missed connecting flight. Staff were pretty useless. I'd definitely advise people to use other airlines. Gulf Air is just not worth using.

We were picked up from our hotel at 3am for the 1.30hr drive to Dubai airport. We arrived at check in before it was even open,...
