The boarding at Heathrow is chaotic. That's partly due to the lack of space and seating at gate 8, and a Qatar flight from gate 9 at the same time. That's down to Heathrow rather than Gulf Air. I've had a similar experience here before. Another problem which isn't specific to Gulf Air or Heathrow is announcements, and those for boarding in particular. They are difficult to hear with all the other noise and for me with hearing problems it's even worse. A simple tv screen would help, so long as it's updated of course.
Few people on the plane - Was great! The plane was late to board and over an hour late to arrive. They said it was airport control. How can these things not be booked it advance? Very frustrating!
Greeting BH International Airport, Flight No. GF-2101 From Bahrain to Dammam At 1:35 am. to 2:20 am. Booking reference: WFYQEG I was informed that I will receive my baggage in Dammam Airport, later on I arrived in Dammam and I didn’t get my baggage, they claimed due to my friend Mr. Faisal didn’t show because he left the Airport and drive his own car all the way to Dammam. OK, I get it and I totally respect the system when you don’t show up your baggage get dropped from the flight, but it’s not my fault when i stay in Bahrain Airport waiting for my next flight around 5 hours then once i get to Dammam I don’t receive my baggage, because my friend who’s didn’t show up his baggage was arrived to Dammam airport, and i’m the one who deserve to get his own baggage didn’t receive anything. I think you mixed up between our baggage, the tag on my bag has his name but actually it’s mine and his bag has my name but actually it’s for him, that’s why I received his bag in DMM airport and I didn’t get mine and i was so frustrated. Also here’s the baggage numbers: GF 175011 My baggage wasn’t received GF 175008 His baggage was received and he don’t deserve to receive it because he left the airport and didn’t show up the flight For now i need to get my baggage to DMM airport please or contact me in personal please +966559600495 or this email.

Pros: "Pleasant and efficient crew made a middle of the night flight (01.00 - 05.30) quite bearable! Food good too."
Pros: "Once we were in the air (see below), everything was very good."
Cons: "Poor organisation at the airport (maybe notGulfAir's fault). Flight slightly delayed. Gate changed at last minute, board said "Boarding now", but we then waited something like 30 minutes at the new gate to actually start boarding."
Pros: "Crew was very nice in business. Very helpful and catering to every need."
Cons: "The entertainment. Hollywood movies were not working."
Cons: "Economy sets are too tight and cramped. Cup holder was good for nothing, i tried to put my soft drink bottle in it and it slipped right out the bottom and when I tried to put a cup of water in it supplied by the crew it wouldn't fit! When I reclined my seat to sleep the passenger behind me pushed my seat hard back to upright position. When I turned around to ask why the rude response I realized that he was a tall fellow and his knees were already touching the back of my seat so when I reclined it, it hurt him and he had no where to move his legs. I couldn't do or say much as I understood his misery and therefore kept my seat up the whole way for 5 hours! The flight was full and neither of us could relocate to another seat."
Pros: "Hey dear I don’t come by flight I got issue and I used car trip to Riyadh in 18/4/2019"

Cons: "more sauce on the meat."
Pros: "Entertainment options were excellent. Lots of choice. Staff were friendly."

Pros: "Food was good, and offered even on short flights. Crew is very nice"
Cons: "Checking in was terrible. We had 2 luggage each allowed by Japan airlines. When we checked in to our connecting flight with Philippines airlines, we were told we were very excessively overweight.

Pros: "This airline is the worst airline ever"
Cons: "My complain is more for the ticketing and not the entire flight. Never got a chance to fly with as I missed my flight. The ticketing guys did not help or seem to be interested in helping me find anoyher flight. All as I was concerned my missing of the flight was taken as a gain for the to make more profit with this situation. The people I called to talk to were so rude and sometime even hang up the phone on me.. They ended up cancel my return flight too even though it’s suppose to be 1 month from now. They did not care if anything went okay with me, they kicked me out of their space. I ended up spending $2000 to book another flight. For this reason I hate this airline and I would never ever recommend it to anybody which I know they wouldn’t care because they will still make money but im gonna warn everybody I know to stay away from this airline"

Cons: "Service on Kuwait Airways is poor in business class I didn't feel like we were in business class or treated that way. The flight attendants seemed very rushed and not necessarily attentive to us likeQatar and Emirates does. Furthermore, my checked bag never made it to my final destination."
Pros: "I booked on your site and canceled the reservation on the same day and communicated with you by telephone and I was informed that the refund is within seven days and I have not received the amount yet, knowing that on Tuesday 8/1/2019 is the date of the flight that was booked, please return the amount to me as soon as possible"
Cons: "The food was ok.the bread was stale and cold.should serve it hot. No blankets were given.bathrooms were uncleaned.out of soap n tissue roll once was hanged out.the kuwait airport is pathetic.has all the bathrooms on the lower level far away from the prayer rooms.uncleaned. i dont wanna say more..hire more professionals to work for the airport"
Pros: "By mistake i booked for a wong date (instead of September it was December) they changed the booking without charging me)"

Cons: "I had the worst experience at Kuwait airport. I traveled on 26 th of sept 2017 from Islamabad to Jfk.The way I was treated before boarding is something I never want to encounter in my life. I have to think twice now before traveling by Kuwait airways. Not only the ground is untrained they also seems very uneducated.. Preferences given to Kuwaities I thing that's why they are running the whole airline . Staff not sure how to run the body scanner discussing in front of me what to look for. Body patting three times still not sure what they looking for or how to do it. Talking and yelling staff blames you of carrying an American passport and getting benefit out of it by complaining the way you have been treated. You were treated much nicely and professionally at Shannon Airport. Worst Airport and worst ground staff to deal with."

Cons: "Boarding was horrible, no lines, no accommodations for people with babies, bad food with little or no choices. Rude and racist cabin crews specifically the Arabic speaking crew."
Cons: "Very poor no entertainment and the plane looks veryyy old"
