Trip Report: Gulf Air - Kuwait to Bahrain (Lie Flat beds on an Airbus 320!)

Gulf Air
Kuwait to Bahrain (KWI to BAH)
Airbus 320 Long Range - Business Class + Kuwait Lounge

As part of an AAdvantage award from the Middle East to the Philippines, I was able to try out the Gulf Air Airbus 320ER which has , and I kid you not 78-80" seat pitch flat beds in Business Class!

Let's start with the general Priority Pass lounge at KWI, a sad sad example of an airport that is long past it's prime. No Alcohol as Kuwait is a dry country.











Here you can see my trusty carry-on and JFK tag!



On-board the plane!



















Classic Arabic Coffee!

Gulf Air serves this delicious green mint drink, which works great when spiked with Vodka! ;)

Air Canada -Frankfurt - Toronto (FRA-YYZ) Business Class

Air Canada
Frankfurt - Toronto (FRA-YYZ)
Business Class - Boeing 777-300


As part of the old Lifemiles SAW trick, I was able to book a bargain flight and try out the Air Canada Business Class on their Boeing 77W.

Overall, I found the seat adequate, identical to the Delta product and a very acceptable product, alothough not as nice as the new AA Business Class for flying across the pond.





Decent Size TV and privacy...




Appetizer with the saddest looking salad out there!
 

Mood Lights on the Air Canada 77W

Decided to try the Chicken with Rice Pilaf...

 

Ice Cream Air Canada style ( I prefer my US Carrier style sundaes!)

Austrian Airbus 319 - VIE-AMS Business Class

Airbus 319
VIE-AMS Vienna to Amsterdam
Business Class


After a quick stop at the Senator lounge it was time to board my flight to Amsterdam.
On this flight there were just three passengers in Business Class. Since we left at 7 AM , the flight had a mix of connections from all across the Star Alliance group.





Cabin was a normal intra Europe business class, but the bulkhead was OK for the short two hour hop.


Early morning flights provide some great sunrise shots!

Cheese and Ham sandwich

Hong Kong to Dallas HKG to DFW



Boarding almost about to begin


Checking out the seats on the plane, this plane flies from NYC to Sao Paulo, London and the Hong Kong route.




Take off time with some decent views of the Island...


Let's start with a classic Jack and Diet




Cold Salad/Appetizer




Refill time for my Jack and Coke Zero

I decided to risk it and try the beef, was better than the usual Shoe level that is what is served on AA.



Always a classic, Ice Cream Sundae with Hot Fudge, Cream and Nuts!


Still over Asia, this might take awhile!




Midflight Snack: Cold Noodles and Chicken!


Dim Sum as the Pre-landing snack





And now in Dallas!
