Default Gulf air Boston to Bombay-- Any experiences

Hi all
I am posting this non immigration related thread in the general interest category so please dont yell at me

I am considering booking on Gulf air in the summer from Boston to Bombay. I have read several inconsistent quality reports and was wondering if anyone who has recent experience with them might tell me more.

They cost $950 compared to the closest $1250 on other airlines.

Please let me know

I understand the $300 is a big difference, Gulf air from BOS-BOM is a 2 stop itinerary. Anymore than 1 stop there are too many things that can go wrong, depending on the connections and the airports where you are connecting through.
Please read the reviews at Gulf Air Customer Reviews | SKYTRAX , I am a big aviatiion fan and keep tabs on the airlines a lot as a hobby. In general, Gulf air isn't highly respected in the aviation circles. One other thing you might want to keep in mind is the current political situation in Bahrain and possible impacts on flights in the near future.

My favorites flying from BOS-BOM is BA through LHR or VS and Jet airways through LHR or LH through MUC, I avoid LH through FRA because of potential delays at FRA.

Good luck!

Thanks Devang. Ya unfortunately British and jet etc is very expensive $1672 . ya so might end up with Qatar if we decide against gulf I guess(qatar is about 1350 or so).

Another option I am thinking of is travel guard travel insurance for 100$ on top of the $950 gulf air to get protection from gulf air issues if any arise .

Thanks
