Review of Pascal R. about the flight Gulf Air between Bangkok and Paris Charles De Gaulle on 27/10/2014 in Economy
Pascal R. GF / GFA BKK / CDG
Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.


I’m going to summarize it in the simplest possible way to save you from the details. I will only take the local times.
Expected itinerary:
- BKK (departure at 8:50 p.m.)
- BAH (11:50 p.m. - 00:30 a.m.), a 40-minute stopover
- CDG (arrival at 6:25 a.m.)
Ok, when I got my ticket they told me boarding was expected for 7:50 p.m. At 9 p.m., there was still no information. Everyone was waiting like an idiot. We took off at 9:40 p.m. Still no information, not even an explanation for the delay. The flight attendants spoke English with an incomprehensible accent. We arrived in BAH at 1:30 a.m. NO ONE was there to inform me that my flight took off without me. I had to go after the information to be able to find the right counter. They told me the next flight would be in 24 hours. I wanted a faster way, so they offered me another flight operated by a different airline, with an extra stopover. And so, I have now been waiting for 30 minutes while they look for my luggage. I will then have to fly to Doha, in Qatar, within four hours and wait there for two hours before heading back to Paris. At the moment, I am still waiting for my bags in front of the counter. I’m standing, as there are no seats. I’m never flying Gulf Air again.
