When it comes to air travel, we've all heard our fair share of stories, both good and bad. So, when I booked a flight with Gulf Air from Delhi to Amman via Bahrain in late August 2023, I have to admit I had some reservations. Online reviews for Gulf Air were mixed. However, what unfolded during my journey left me pleasantly surprised, and I'm happy to share my positive experience.

A Clean and Neat Aircraft

As I boarded the Gulf Air flight in Delhi, my initial impressions were overwhelmingly positive. The aircraft was not only neat but also impeccably clean. It's a reassuring sight, especially considering the times we live in, to see an airline take hygiene and cleanliness seriously. The cabin crew greeted passengers with warm smiles and an eagerness to assist. This set the tone for what would turn out to be a delightful journey.

A Premium Flight Experience

Once settled in, I noticed that the seating was comfortable, and the legroom was more than adequate, even for a long-haul flight. The in-flight entertainment system (QR code based) offered a wide selection of movies and TV shows to keep passengers entertained throughout the journey. The meals served on board were also a highlight. The selection of dishes was impressive, and the quality of food surpassed my expectations. Gulf Air truly knows how to elevate the dining experience at 30,000 feet.

A Smooth Layover at Bahrain Airport

My flight itinerary had a layover at Bahrain International Airport, and I was pleasantly surprised by the airport's modern and efficient facilities. The airport was clean, well-organized, and offered a variety of dining and shopping options to keep travelers occupied during their layovers. The airport staff were helpful and made the transit experience hassle-free. It was a brief but enjoyable stopover that made the journey even more pleasant.

In the end, my journey from Delhi to Amman via Bahrain with Gulf Air was a pleasant surprise. It proved that sometimes, online reviews don't tell the whole story, and you have to experience it for yourself to truly appreciate it.

The combination of a clean and well-maintained aircraft, a premium flight experience, and a smooth layover at Bahrain Airport made this journey with Gulf Air one to remember. It's reassuring to know that there are airlines out there committed to delivering a comfortable and enjoyable travel experience.

So, if you're considering Gulf Air for your next travel, I wholeheartedly recommend it based on my positive experience.
