Here’s Why | Gulf Air’s New Dreamliner is Changing The Flying Game
Extra-long leg room, three windows for capturing that perfect sunrise pic and a stylish in-flight beauty kit by Cerruti. Gulf Air’s Dreamliner, really is ‘the dream’.
No matter how you slice it, a long haul flight can be a tedious journey, even for us well-seasoned travellers. But, thanks to Gulf Air and its new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, the flying experience just got better.
The aircraft is designed for a calmer cabin experience and is equipped with a quieter air conditioner and advanced technology that isolates noises from vibrations, meaning you really can ‘sit back and relax’ at 36,000 feet.
Flying business class is a luxury, and Gulf Air’s Dreamliner does not disappoint. We’d even go as far to say, it trumps some of the ‘best airlines in the world’. If you’re flying to London from Dubai, this experience is a must. It offers a super quick transfer through Bahrain and is a fraction of the cost of its competitors.
On board, you’ll find extra-long leg room, in fact it was so long our feet couldn’t even reach the foot stool. There’s no chance of feeling claustrophobic either, the window seats are designed around not one, but three windows, offering ‘almost’ panoramic views of the sky. A stylish leather Cerutti beauty kit offers all the in-flight essentials including Aigner body lotion, lip balm and fragrance, while the seat controls include a massager function, so you can land looking and feeling refreshed.
The wide-screen TV’s offer TV shows and radio stations and includes 10 of the latest Hollywood movies. As a business class traveller, you can take advantage of the Falcon Lounges throughout each airport which offer free food and beverage, showers and relaxing seating.
To top it all off, it’s an eco-friendly passenger plane which uses 25 percent less fuel per passenger compared with aircraft of a similar size, which means, Flying Gulf Air’s new Dreamliner is actually better for the environment!
Gulf Air’s new 787-9 Dreamliner offers double daily service connects to London, Heathrow and Bahrain International Airport.
