Review: Gulf Air B787-9 Business Class Bangkok to Bahrain (via Singapore)

Aaron Wong

While its Apex Suites are comfortable, the overall Gulf Air Business Class experience feels somewhat unpolished.

The Long Way to Singapore would involve flying Gulf Air twice: once from Bangkok to Bahrain (via Singapore), and then again from Bahrain to Singapore direct.

Since I have two Gulf Air flights to review, I figured I’d do them two different ways. This first review (to Bahrain) will be a point-by-point take on various aspects of the flight, like the seat, dining, and entertainment. The second review (out of Bahrain) will be done in a more narrative style like my usual trip reports.

This would be my first-ever Gulf Air experience, and while the airline is rarely mentioned in the same breath as Emirates, Etihad and Qatar, I was hoping to be pleasantly surprised nonetheless.

Check-in and Boarding

seat selection gulf air

I arrived in Bangkok on SQ710 at 2.13 p.m, well ahead of GF166’s 4.50 p.m departure.

Bangkok Airport does not currently permit airside transits on separate tickets, and all the airside transit counters were closed. This means you’ll need to clear immigration, and hence require a Thailand Pass. The general queue for immigration snaked around several times, but thanks to my APEC Business Travel Card, I was out in a matter of minutes.

Once through immigration, I headed up to the departures area and checked in again for my Gulf Air flight. There were two counters to serve Business Class passengers, and I didn’t need to present any documentation beyond my passport (Bahrain doesn’t even require visitors to be vaccinated). 

seat selection gulf air

Business Class passengers departing from Bangkok Airport are entitled to use the priority security and immigration lanes. This can save you a fair bit of time, as Bangkok seems to get busier every week. 

seat selection gulf air

Gulf Air uses the Miracle Lounge at Concourse D. However, I opted instead to visit the Oman Air lounge at the nearby Concourse E, which is accessible through Priority Pass. I’ll write a review of this lounge in a separate post, but tl;dr: there’s champagne! 

seat selection gulf air

Boarding in Bangkok was delayed by more than 30 minutes due to the late arrival of the aircraft, and it was a very messy and chaotic process. Everyone rushed the gate when boarding was called, though Business Class passengers were eventually allowed to board first.

seat selection gulf air

GF166 transits in Singapore, and on arrival at Changi those terminating their journeys in Singapore were instructed to disembark first, followed by those continuing on to Bahrain. Transit passengers were given a card to identify themselves.

seat selection gulf air

There was no opportunity to visit the lounge, as transit passengers were funnelled directly through security before being deposited at the gate to wait for boarding to recommence. 

seat selection gulf air

The layover was meant to be one hour long, but turned out to be much longer than that.

seat selection gulf air

I went to check the operational history of GF166, and this shouldn’t come as a surprise. GF166 is scheduled to depart from Singapore at 9.20 p.m, but over a two-month period , the earliest this flight ever departed was 9.42 p.m. Keep in mind that’s an outlier; the median departure time is well after 10 p.m. 

So it figures my flight had to go and set a new record for all-time lateness, pushing back at 11.23 p.m. Passengers were pissed to say the least, especially those with tight connections in Bahrain. 

Gulf Air B787-9 Business Class Seat

Gulf Air’s B787-9 Business Class cabins feel sleek and modern, with their black and white colour scheme and gold trim finishes. There’s none of the over-the-top bling you’ll find on Emirates, and that’s just fine by me.

A total of 26 Business Class seats are available, in a forward-facing 2-2-2 configuration. These are known as Apex Suites (also found on Japan Airlines and Korean Air), and their unique design enables airlines to achieve the best of both worlds: a high-density configuration that still gives every passenger direct aisle access.

seat selection gulf air

How does that work? The two seats at the side are staggered to create a passageway for easy ingress/egress. 

seat selection gulf air

This means that window seats (A and K) should be the seats of choice for solo travellers desiring extra privacy (and aren’t claustrophobic); with the partition raised, you’re virtually invisible to anyone in the aisle. That and the private walkway made it almost comparable to an enclosed Business Class suite with a door. 

seat selection gulf air

Couples travelling together may prefer the D/G seats, which are directly in line with each other and allow for easy conversation or sharing of food. 

seat selection gulf air

If you’re travelling solo and didn’t manage to get one of the seats at the side, fret not. With the privacy partition all the way up, you can’t really see your seat mate. The shell around each seat also provides some visual separation from the aisle, although it’s obviously no substitute for the window seat. 

seat selection gulf air

The only other thing I’d add regarding seat selection is to avoid Row 1, as the curvature of the fuselage can make the 1A and 1K seats feel narrow. You’ll also get the double whammy of galley and bathroom noise.

seat selection gulf air

For this flight, I selected 3A, a window seat on the port side of the aircraft. 3C remained empty all the way to Bahrain, fortunately. 

seat selection gulf air

Window seats are unique in the sense they have a special fold down ottoman, below the IFE screen.

seat selection gulf air

I thought this was meant for couple dining, but it’s actually meant to support your feet while sleeping. In other words, it’s not designed to take the full weight of a person, hence the notice “seating not permitted”.

seat selection gulf air

The tray table is generously-sized, and pops out from the leather siding. You can swivel it parallel to your body to easily enter/exit the seat even during meal service, should nature call. 

seat selection gulf air

However, the height of the tray table cannot be adjusted, which may be problematic if you want to sit up and take breakfast in bed. 

Seat controls are found in the armrest, with four pre-set positions. You can make further manual adjustments to the seat as required, including the backrest, legrest and lumbar support. A unique feature is the massage function, though an OSIM chair it’s not. 

seat selection gulf air

Further controls can be found on the opposite armrest, including a ‘do not disturb’ button, lighting controls, a button to raise and lower the privacy partition, and a button that confusingly sets the chair to lounge mode (with the airplane taking off logo, you’d think it’d be the button to reset the chair to full upright).

seat selection gulf air

A reading light is nestled into the moulding behind your head, with three levels of brightness. Apart from that, the only other option is the overhead light. 

seat selection gulf air

One main weakness of Gulf Air’s Apex Suite is the lack of storage space for personal items. There is a small recessed area towards the front…

seat selection gulf air

…and a nook beneath the armrest (which I wouldn’t recommend using for electronics, since they could be crushed when the seat reclines). 

seat selection gulf air

That’s it, unless you’re sitting in the C or H seats, in which case you have a separate stowage area behind the head of the window passenger (though I’m not sure if this was intentionally designed for storage).

seat selection gulf air

In-seat power and 3x USB ports are provided, but the positioning is odd to say the least. All the outlets are tucked into the area beneath the armrest, and if the head of your power plug happens to be particularly large, it may have difficulty fitting. In fact, the third USB port is almost inaccessible because it’s at the very bottom, and you need nimble fingers to maneuverer the cable in place. It feels like someone didn’t think this through when designing the seat. 

seat selection gulf air

When the time comes to sleep, the crew will turn down your seat into a full flat bed with a mattress topper. I found it very comfortable indeed, and liked the fact that I could manually adjust the recline to about 160-170°. I find that 180° puts too much strain on the lower back, and remember, the aircraft itself flies at a slight angle due to the incline of the nose. 

seat selection gulf air

The seats on my flight were in generally good condition, but hadn’t been cleaned properly. I found crumbs on the controls, and some sticky residue on the tray table.

Food & Beverage

No menus were provided on either leg, so everything below is from memory. 

On the Bangkok to Singapore leg, pre-departure drinks were served on the ground, including orange juice, mint lemonade, and a very decent Champagne Jacquart (what SIA used to serve in Premium Economy, before scrapping champagne altogether ).

seat selection gulf air

It’s also a Gulf Air tradition to serve dates and Arabic coffee before take-off. 

seat selection gulf air

After take-off from Bangkok, light canapes were served from a trolley. There was no menu, but the options included a beef sandwich, chicken skewer, prawn cake, as well as an assortment of sweet tarts.

seat selection gulf air

On the Singapore to Bahrain leg, pre-departure drinks were served again (but no champagne this time).

seat selection gulf air

Dinner was served after take-off, which would be fine if the flight actually departed at its scheduled 9.20 p.m slot. But if it’s 11.20 p.m and passengers have one foot in sleepytown, the crew need to adapt on the fly and double time the service, especially since the light refreshment served before landing further cuts into sleep time. 

I timed the meal service, and unfortunately it took just under two hours from take-off to the serving of the main course. I skipped dessert because I simply didn’t have it in me to wait.

I was also surprised that table cloths weren’t provided, and dishes were brought on trays. I mean, I’m perfectly fine with foregoing aesthetics for efficiency in a scenario like this. But if you’re serving a meal on a tray, you might as well bring everything at one go. It’s like we got the worst of both worlds- subpar presentation and slow service.

The appetiser was a prawn salad, though it looked more like prawns + salad, if you know what I mean. The prawns were sizeable, but the greens were more decorative than anything else.

seat selection gulf air

For the main, I had what the crew described as “chicken with rice”. This was awful, an greasy mess that looked like someone had taken an Economy Class meal and dumped it into a Business Class plate. The chicken was buried in an oil slick, the rice was mushy and the vegetables had been blanched into oblivion. 

seat selection gulf air

It didn’t help that the meal service was extremely inefficient. All items were served individually from the galley instead of from a trolley, meaning a lot of repeated movement back and forth to serve all 26 passengers. 

Before landing, the crew did a canapes service from the trolley, with similar items offered as on the Bangkok to Singapore leg. 

seat selection gulf air

If you ask me, they should have reversed the order by serving the canapes as a quick snack after take-off, then using the time passengers spend sleeping to prepare the food for a proper meal before arrival. 

seat selection gulf air

On the Singapore to Bahrain leg, all passengers received an amenities kit that contained:

  • THANN Oriental Essence Lip Balm
  • THANN Oriental Essence Face and Hand Moisturiser
  • THANN Signature Eau de Toilette

The sleep mask is hidden inside the socks bundle, and I didn’t see it at first. I requested for a sleep mask, and the crew gave me a separate kit that contained a mask, earplugs and socks. 

seat selection gulf air

Slippers and pyjamas were distributed, but only in one size: XL. I’d like to have a word with whoever did the ordering!

seat selection gulf air

The pyjamas weren’t branded, but they breathed well and got the job done (there’s no pockets, by the way).

Inflight Entertainment

Gulf Air uses the Thales AVANT IFE solution on its B787-9s, and each Business Class seat has a 21.5-inch entertainment screen. This delivered acceptable picture quality, though it washed out a bit in bright light. 

seat selection gulf air

Browsing the IFE system is rather confusing. Intuitively, you’d try to use the handset to navigate what you see on the screen. But here, it’s either/or. You either navigate through the handset or the screen, but not both at the same time.

seat selection gulf air

Frankly speaking, I don’t know why they even bothered making the display a touchscreen. It’s so far in front and uses resistive touch technology (i.e. single touch only) so you need to press with all your might before input is registered; a sure-fire recipe for gorilla arm.  Even Gulf Air recommends that passengers navigate via the handset instead.

seat selection gulf air

And yet this poses problems of its own. The handset’s small screen means you can only see a couple of selections at a time, and is an extremely inefficient way of browsing the library. There’s a discernible lag between swiping the screen and seeing a response, which adds further annoyance. 

seat selection gulf air

You could watch the IFE content on the handset instead of the big screen if you so desired, but it’s not advisable since the handset overheats if its screen remains on for a prolonged period.

Business Class headphones felt cheap and plasticky, with no noise cancelling feature to speak of. They would also emit a high pitched electronic whine if the connector was bent at the wrong angle.

seat selection gulf air

Another annoyance is that when you first start the system, there’s an unskippable 80 second ad showcasing the IFE features. 

seat selection gulf air

There were 155 movies to choose from, but only 73 of which were in English (KrisWorld, by comparison, offers almost 400 movie options). I didn’t see a lot of first run movies either, and there was a fair share of “straight-to-DVD” content (hands up if you’ve heard of Clean or The Desperate Riders).

seat selection gulf air

The TV selection wasn’t much better either, with a small selection of nature documentaries, Mr Bean, and a few random sitcom episodes.

seat selection gulf air

I decided to finally watch Crazy Rich Asians, if only to see how they butchered my beloved country.

seat selection gulf air

It was during this movie that I discovered something absolutely hilarious: Gulf Air censors female legs and feet. At first I thought it was just a problem with my screen…

seat selection gulf air

…and then realised no, no it wasn’t. 

seat selection gulf air

I mean I’d understand blurring out bikinis or cleavage, but this is a whole new level. 

seat selection gulf air

Gulf Air offers Wi-Fi on its B787-9 aircraft, but the system is confusing to say the least.

Passengers can choose from two packages:

  • Chat (US$10)
  • Smart (US$15)

How much data is included? Beats me. How long is each package valid for? I don’t know. I searched the Gulf Air website, read the terms and conditions and am still none the wiser. 

I purchased the Smart package, which I  think  covers you for the duration of the flight (since the notification below says “available during the entire flight”). 

seat selection gulf air

Wi-Fi speeds clocked in at a very decent 9 Mbps down and 2 Mbps up, much faster than any connection I’ve had on Singapore Airlines.

seat selection gulf air

Prior to this flight, the only onboard bidet seats I’d seen were on ANA and Japan Airlines. But Gulf Air has them too, since Islamic hygiene principles necessitate it. Washrooms also feature contactless flushes and taps (but not bins, sadly).

seat selection gulf air

Bathroom amenities weren’t anything particularly fancy, mostly generic Gulf Air-branded stuff. 

seat selection gulf air

The Gulf Air crew on my Bangkok to Singapore flight were friendly and approachable, while the Singapore to Bahrain crew were more reserved.

In general I’d say they try their best, but there’s a distinct lack of polish. For example:

  • Passengers were never addressed by name, just the generic sir and madam
  • Drinks orders were sometimes forgotten
  • I asked a crew member if they had other pyjama sizes besides XL, she said she’d check- then never came back
  • Crew would sometimes reach across the partition to serve the passenger at the window seat, instead of going via the passageway 
  • Communication among crew members was lacking; my tray was cleared when I still had one more course to go
  • The crew forgot to do a final pass of the cabin to clear pre-departure drink glasses, so several passengers were left clinging on to them as the plane took off

If anything, it just drives home how well Singapore Airlines trains its crew. It’s easy to take for granted sometimes, but once you fly elsewhere you’ll notice the differences immediately.

If I had to sum up my Gulf Air experience in one word, it’d probably be “unpolished”. 

Apex Suites are a strong foundation on which to build a great Business Class product, but on Gulf Air they’re hamstrung by poor design decisions, such as the lack of storage space and odd placement of power outlets. The IFE system feels clunky and doesn’t offer much first-run content, and the service, while earnest, was hit and miss.

For what it’s worth, my experience out of Bahrain was slightly better, but that’s something I’ll cover in a separate post.

Have you flown on Gulf Air’s Business Class before? What was your experience like?

Can we do a fifth freedom flight from BKK to SIN?

Aaron Wong

yes, that is an option

Spoon

You, sir, are clearly out of touch with the ludicrous levels at which the ME states clamp down on female “indecent” attire in the name of piousness. Just look at what the Bahrain track and field athletes have worn to their international competitions. Looks more like a diving suit. Meanwhile, it’s OK for men to wear shorts at the beach in Bahrain, but obviously not women. Because hey, nothing wrong with showing off your aurat if you’re male.

Andy

Just took Gulf economy from Singapore to Bangkok. The cabin crews pretty much ignored most call bell from passengers. Another downside is the demographic of the passengers, most of them are not wearing masks right from the boarding gate at Changi to the whole duration in the plane.

Matthew

Masks are not mandatory onboard the aircraft fwiw. Bahrain doesn’t have a mask mandate anymore indoor and outdoor.

JJJ

Just flew them and thought that the experience wasnt too bad. Paid $400 and i think its worth the money for the experience.

for $400 definitely can’t complain. but if asked to pay full price, I’m not sure I’d be quite so forgiving

Simon Ramsay

Gulf Air was MUCH better on the BAH-LHR (and return) sector. It’s just they don’t care about BKK-SIN triangle flight very much.

Keep in mind that their only lounge outside BAH is in well, LHR.

yes, i had a much better experience flying from BAH-SIN. will get around to posting about it eventually

RGH

How was the movie? I heard the books had more SG trivia…

it was more about the ABC experience than Singapore per se.

Missed opportunity of free advertising for SQ to showcase its new Suites to pax flying all other airlines via the movie. Wonder whether competitors would have then blurred the Suites part out due to being too paiseh 😉

well it’s easy to say that now, since the movie did well, but if it were a flop then i’m sure people would jump all over them. kind of a lose-lose situation

Ken

Thanks as always for the superb review.

Now here’s my case: looking to fly to Cairo in J class in Dec. Cheapest on GulfAir is BKK – SIN – BAH – CAI (S$1.1k) and the same flight from SIN-BAH -CAI is (S$2.1k).

As I am based in SIN & I book the cheaper fare & miss 😉 my BKK-SIN flight, will I be able to board the onward journey from SIN-BAH-CAI?

Nope. Whole itinerary will be cancelled once first leg is missed

Yong

Not sure if it’s too late. I’m waiting at Changi Airport on my way from SG – Cairo via Bahrain. $1200 to and fro. Quite cheap + a layover to explore Bahrain. Fingers crossed it’s good! 100% full flight! Full of Singaporean Muslims heading for tour

Review: Gulf Air 787-9 Business Class

an airplane at an airport

From Bahrain to London I flew Gulf Air onboard a 787-9 in “Falcon Gold” business class. Overall, my experience was mixed, with some elements I loved and others that made me scratch my head.

In This Post:

Gulf Air 787-9 Business Class Review (BAH-LHR)

I booked my ticket using Aeroplan miles. In Abu Dhabi, I received my boarding only for Abu Dhabi to Bahrain but was able to collect my onward boarding pass in the Gulf Air Falcon Gold Lounge .

After a (very long) layover, I proceeded downstairs to board my flight to London.

a large display in a building

Boarding began 55 minutes prior to takeoff.

Gulf Air 003 Bahrain (BAH) – London (LHR) Friday, April 8 Depart: 10:25 AM Arrive: 03:20 PM Duration: 06hr, 55min Distance: 3,169 miles Aircraft: Boeing 787-9 Seat: 2H (Business Class)

I was greeted by a crowd of flight attendants as I boarded, who proceeded to their stations when they saw that passengers were coming.

In all my years of flying, this was the first time flying on a B/E Apex suite and I thought the seat was excellent, with great privacy and comfort. The big downside is the lack of any sort of storage space. Even so, I loved this seat.

a row of seats with monitors on the side

The seat is 22 inches wide and is even wider when in lie-flat mode (25.5 inches). The seat converts into a bed that is 78 inches long. The seats are arranged in a staggered 2-2-2 configuration. Every seat has direct aisle access.

While I had attempted to secure a window seat, I booked last-minute and there were no window seats left. If you can secure a window seat, you really have a private experience that feels almost like a first class seat with three windows of your own.

I noticed on the seat map (via ExpertFlyer) that seat 1K was available, but was told it was broken in the lounge. Onboard, I asked about it and it was confirmed that the motorized feature did not work so the seat was stuck in the upright position. I asked if it would be okay to move to that seat for the lunch service (“so I could look out the window”) and my request was obliged.

The seat can be adjusted on both the armrest and on a side console panel. There is a massage function as well.

Note how filthy the area around my universal power port (and USB port) were:

After lunch, I took a nap and appreciated the bedding, which included a seat liner, duvet, and pillow. The duvet was very lightweight, but cozy.

There are no individual air vents, though I loved the mood lighting and the lack of center bins, which provided a spacious feel.

Each business class suite includes a huge 22-inch entertainment screen with a touchscreen controller.

a screen on a seat

Similar to JAL, you scroll through choices (moves, games, music, TV shows) on your handheld device, not on the main screen itself. It is only when you make a selection that it shows up on your main screen. I do not particularly care for this style of making a selection, but you get used to it.

I’m not sure whether there was a problem with my headphone jack or with multiple sets of bad headphones, but the sound only came in faintly and only on the left side of the headphones (and I did replace the headphones).

IFE advertisements were also quite annoying: there was no way to fast-forward through them.

Wi-Fi was available for purchase onboard, with two packages available, a “chat” pass for $10 or a “smart” pass for $15. The smart pass did not have data caps and worked quite well.

I liked that you could see how many other passengers were online:

Speeds were respectable:

There was something off with the soft product, particularly the service, on this flight.

The purser onboard was friendly enough–I don’t think he meant any harm–but first he was curious why I was taking pictures, scolding me not to take any. I explained the it was my first time on the Gulf Dreamliner and he then encouraged me to take more…

That was innocuous enough, but it got stranger. Lunch was served after takeoff and instead of politely addressing each passenger by name or doing it himself, he marched through the cabin yelling (literally shouting) at people to pull their tray tables up…it felt like I was dealing with a surly flight attendant on American or United.

The cabin was immediately darkened after takeoff even though it was morning. I opened my window during the meal service and he came over and said, “This is going to be a problem.” I explained that I like natural light but he admonished me (again, not so much in a cruel way but he was serious) for disturbing others.

Why is it that flight attendants think we like dark cabins on daytime flights?

As odd as it sounds, the service was well-intentioned, just not very well executed. It was far more casual than I would ever have expected on a Gulf carrier. There is great room for improvement.

Food + Drink

Service began with a pre-departure beverage, a choice between orange juice, water, mint lemon juice, or sparkling wine.

The mint lemon juice was excellent and always makes me feel like I’m on a Gulf carrier.

That was followed by cold towels.

Next, came Arabic coffee and dates. Keep in mind this is all pre-departure!

Finally, menus were distributed before takeoff, which included a bar list and wine menu.

Lunch was delicious…soup, salad, chicken, and dessert..but little touches were missing. Like the casserole dish wasn’t wiped. And I was not asked if I wanted anything else to drink besides water. I really hope that service on my flight does not characterize the style of service on Gulf Air, which simply was miles behind my preceding Etihad flight.

First, I had mixed nuts and some sparkling water.

Then a bowl of creamy tomato soup with garlic bread.

That was followed by a green salad with herbs inside and a vinaigrette dressing; a very satisfying salad.

The main course was best of all, a spicy chicken tagine with saffron rice.

Next, a dessert cart was rolled down the aisle and included a selection of fruit, cheese, and cakes.

My chocolate cake with fruit was excellent. I ordered a cappuccino with it. It took 15 minutes to deliver the cappuccino…

Before landing, afternoon tea service was offered with sandwiches, cakes, and scones. Service was via cart.

The sandwiches were horrible – stale and tasteless. A huge disappointment for a carrier from a country with a lovely cuisine. Even the scones were not very good.

The lavatory included a toilet with a bidet.

Amenity Kit + Pajamas

Impressively, pajamas were offered during this short service. Having slept the previous night and because it was morning, I did not change.

a blue pillow with a white label on it

The amenity kit was in a large bag with a white horse on it and included:

  • face moisturizer
  • eau de toilette (perfume water)

a group of items on a table

We landed about 20 minutes ahead of schedule in London. I think (quite reasonably) I give this flight a mixed review. The main meal service was delicious, the seat comfortable, and the amenities like a large amenity kit and pajamas impressive, but the service was… strange…and the pre-arrival meal was horrible.

While I would not hesitate to fly Gulf Air again, the carrier must do a better job of training its flight attendants to provide service more on par with its Gulf peers.

Just a random thought, but you should try reviewing all of the airlines that offer Apex Suites in J like KL, JL and a few others to see which airline offers the best Apex product.

' src=

JL is coming up. I know KE has them, not KL though.

Oops, typo; meant KE

Personally, I liked KE’s product over JL’s as I found it a bit wider. Looking forward to your report for JL

Looks ghastly. Reminds me of those awful “wedge your shoulders in, no spare room to put anything, coffin like boxes, one forward one backward” that BA used to run (still runs?) on their 777 to/from Spain. Ghastly.

Sometimes it’s the little things that are a big deal. The photo of the dirty crumb filth was disgusting. Then you wonder what else might have escaped cleaning attention. And no excuse for the thumbprint on the tagine. Those little things add up.

I didn’t even notice the thumbprint!

So, what other “detail” did you miss? What else might we benefit from knowing in order to make an informed decision regarding dispersal of our hard earned, disposable dollar (or shekel), leisure travel income?

I don’t even know if that is a thumbprint, so you are welcome to review the pictures yourself Steve.

Yep, me too … thumbprint yes? thumbprint no? Inconclusive. But good to see you called out the grime in the power ports area … some of those “out of sight” areas appear to have some rather poor and grime catching joints … see the “Limited storage space for shoes only” photo.

Sorry to cause a kerfuffle but the slosh on the dish and position of the smudge indicates that was where a thumb was placed. No matter, my point was it should have been wiped. And Matthew pointed that out in the post. How small an effort of wiping can make a noticeable difference.

' src=

I’ve only flown the jal version of this seat but hated the complete lack of stowage. I was in the middle seat and honestly didn’t know where to put my kindle. Something so small but it was annoying!!

' src=

The Apex suite is my favourite J class seat. Give Oman Air a try. They have the Apex suite on their A330’s. impeccable service. *Menu states Carrot and Cumin Soup yet you say it was Creamy Tomato. *They are not “carts” the flight attendants are serving from. Carts are the big heavy trolleys used mainly in Economy Class. What you have there are called “Traymobiles”.

I hope to fly Oman Air in first class later this year.

This flight was a year ago???

Flew Gulf Air from Bahrain to Manila 3 days ago. Seat 2K so i was next to yours if we were same flight. Window seats have much more leg room and indeed you feel like in 1st class. And actually you get 4 windows once you are in bed position. I see menu is same, took beef and it was nice. Overall it’s nice experience, ticket was much cheaper than others. I’ll be flying Bangkok – Bahrain in 10 days.

Thanks in advance.

You can pick your seats at online check-in for free or you pay to pick one in advance.

Depending occupancy you might be lucky to sit together without paying, you might not.

Thanks for your help :)

This is not true. Even at online check in I have been asked to pay for seats. I called Gulf Air as I am travelling with children and was told that the free seats are allocated at the airport check in only but depending on availability, Children may not necessarily sit with parents.

On the website it lets us see the seats and select but we don’t want to pay if we don’t need to. Naturally if we do, that’s fine!

Just wondered if anyone had any experience or knew whether this is doable? I’ve emailed/FB messaged and am currently on hold for over 2 hours to speak to a customer service agent! 🙈

seat selection gulf air

How did this end for you? I hope you got the answer. Hey... two hours on the phone ??? Wow !!

Typically, ancillary services (meals, seat selection, legroom seats, etc) are non refundable and non transferable. I hope in this case that they were able to let you have it as originally booked.

I finally managed to get a reply via email and actually once they made contact it was resolved very quickly. They actually just reassigned he selected seats at no further cost and it is clearly showing when I log into my booking on the website. To be honest, I was expecting to pay another £100 or so, therefore happy smiles all around 😊

Oh, that's good to hear! Thanks for reporting back :)
