Gulf Air's A330 retrofit showcased in London
Following the commencement of Gulf Air's Airbus A330 aircraft retrofit earlier this year, the airline recently gave a number of local media members the opportunity to experience the airline's revamped product on a familiarisation trip to London.
During the visit, which was jointly hosted by one of London’s leading luxury hotels, Hotel Café Royal, media representatives experienced Gulf Air’s latest product enhancements, both inflight and on-the-ground, enjoying the airline’s revamped A330 aircraft and the Gulf Air Falcon Gold Lounges in both Bahrain International Airport and London Heathrow Airport Terminal 4.
Gulf Air flights to London are operated by newly refurbished Airbus A330 aircraft in a two-class configuration with 30 fully-flatbed Falcon Gold Class seats, 184 revamped Economy Class seats and a state-of-the-art in-flight-entertainment system throughout. Designed specifically for the airline, and incorporating various elements of passengers’ feedback, Gulf Air’s ongoing and highly anticipated A330 retrofit is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2014.
