Business Class on Gulf Air

The variation from airline to airline about what they think constitutes First Class or Business Class. On some airlines, the difference between those two levels is enough that it can truly be worth the extra cost to jump from one to the other. On other airlines, Business Class is so nice – and so similar to First Class – that you might confuse the two. Such is the case with Business Class on Gulf Air.

There are some differences from aircraft to aircraft when it comes to even Business Class on Gulf Air, so we’re going to focus on the highest level of service – that happens to be on the Airbus A340-300.
