      Travel On The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner With Gulf Air



      The addition of the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to the Gulf Air fleet marks a historic moment for Gulf Air and the Kingdom of Bahrain.

      It is yet another important step in the airline’s strategic direction towards furthering the fleet’s modernisation process and strengthening Gulf Air’s network and the overall passenger experience. The aircraft’s industry-leading technology boasts superior fuel efficiency, environmentally friendly operations and range flexibility that will facilitate the planned network expansion and fleet optimisation at a lower operating cost as it consumes around 20% less fuel and produces around 20% less emission than other aircraft types.

      Gulf Air’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners offer 282 seats in a two-class configuration, with 26 Falcon Gold Class seats and 256 Economy Class seats – a 32% increase in capacity on the airline’s previous wide body offering. Passengers will enjoy many improvements with the 787 family such as the largest windows of any jet, air that is cleaner, more humid for greater comfort, large overhead bins with room for everyone’s bags, soothing LED lighting and technology that senses and counters turbulence for a smoother ride. Falcon Gold cabin, in particular, offers superior comfort and business travellers can step out of long haul flights expecting to feel just as fresh as they would after a short one-hour flight
