Gulf Air receives 7th Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners

In 2018, Gulf Air started receiving its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners marking the airline’s fleet renewal programme. A total of 7 Dreamliners are now in service, and three more to enter the fleet in 2020.
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. The industry-leading technology of the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner boasts superior fuel efficiency, environmentally friendly operations and range flexibility that will facilitate Gulf Air’s planned network expansion and fleet optimisation at a lower operating cost. Passengers will enjoy many improvements with the 787 family such as the largest windows of any jet, air that is cleaner, more humid and at a higher pressure for greater comfort, large overhead bins with room for everyone’s bag, soothing LED lighting and technology that senses and counters turbulence for a smoother ride.
