      Gulf Airpoor service and false connection

      Abdul Basit Ansari, purchased a GF ticket for the sector Mumbai - Bahrain - Dammam. (ticket attached)

      The flight was scheduled for 06th April from Mumbai. Departure was at 06:25 pm

      The flight was to reach Bahrain 07:25 pm and it reached on time.

      From Bahrain I had a connection to Dammam at 08:35 pm

      However, inspite the Gulf Air flight form Mumbai reached Bahrain on time but since GF overbooked the flight from Bahrain to Dammam myself and other 21 passengers were strangled at Bahrain airport.

      We were forced to board a bus from Bahrain to Dammam although we purchased a flight ticket.

      The above scenario was acceptable but this harassment did not stop there.

      Upon enquiry with the GF staff at Bahrain airport, a lady (very very rude) was not ready to answer our questions and was treating us like animals.

      The only option is by Bus and the Bus is scheduled at 02:00 am the next day.

      Her reply was like she was doing a favor on us by providing us the Bus service.

      I did not expect this service by GF staff.

      Upon repeated enquiry, we were told that if we keep enquiring, they will file a case against us and will arrest us in a lock up.

      After an argument of 4 hours we were given a Bus.

      Then this also not ended here, the driver took us to his office, there a new driver was given the charge of the Bus.

      We reached the King Fahad Cause Way and cleared the Bahrain immigration.

      Then we cleared the Saudi immigration but then the driver was not ready to drive the bus any further.

      Upon enquiry, he told that he don't have Saudi Visa…. Strange…

      He told us that he is waiting for a driver from Saudi and once the driver come he will take us to customs and then to the bus stand in Dammam or Rakah.

      There we waited for another 1 and half hour, just for the driver……

      Finally the driver came and we reached our bus stand at 4:45 am

      Although we had arrangements for our pick up from Dammam Airport.

      Now please explain the below grievances:

        Gulf Airbaggage

        Lost baggage with Gulf Air since April 24, 2019.
        My wife Safura Salih traveled on Wednesday 24 April 2019 from Calicut to Dammam via Bahrain, Saudi Arabia on Gulf Air Flight No. GF261.
        Booking reference KVGOSN
        Baggage tag: GF234057 (lost)
        Passenger Name: Safura Salih

        She was carrying 3 checked-in baggage. Two were allowed with the ticket and the third one was purchased paying extra baggage charges at Calicut Airport during check-in. (receipt attached).
        The trip from Bahrain to Dammam was arranged by road and customs and immigration is to be done at King Fahd Causeway to Dammam.
        She had collected all three bags and handed them over to the staff while waiting for the bus that was a few hours from the arrival time.
        She realized missing baggage at King Fahd Causeway customs. The driver apologized for not loading and called to ensure it is in the Bahrain airport.
        At the final destination in Dammam, The Bus deport for Gulf Air we lodged complained to the attendant there. They had arranged the baggage the next day that has come to Dammam Airport 60 km away. We went to collect it at Dammam airport. Surprisingly we received only two pieces out of three! We had a missing carton that we purchased paying an extra baggage fee.
        The airport sent a message to Bahrain to send the missing piece.
        There was no update from Dammam airport where they said they will contact us as soon as the missing piece arrives. We kept calling and the answer was not received yet.

              Gulf Airreturn tickets

              I made a round trip booking (DUBAI-Bahrain-Sharks el Sheikh and return Sharm El Sheikh-Bahrain-DUBAI) and then Gulf Air canceled return flight Sharm El Sheikh-Bahrain. And company informed me about this cancellation before 2 days from my trip. I agreed to make my return way 3-4 hours longer and make one one more step in Cairo (Sharm El Sheikh - Cairo-Bahrain-DUBAI) and sent complaint. Complaint number is [protected]! It was made 7 days ago!!! And till now there is no any update! How this airlines can still offer them services if they really don't care about customer?!

                Gulf Airticket refund

                I had to cancel my ticket because of unfortunate circumstances. I have been trying to get a refund. Particulars of my ticket are:
                e-ticket. [protected]
                Booking Number: HPHIZC

                I was first told that a refund was issued on the 31st of January, and I could expect my refund in 10 - 15 days. When the time passed and I did not see a credit posted to my credit card account, I contacted Gulf Air again. This time I was advised that my refund was processed on the 13th February, and it would take 10 - 15 days for the refund to get posted to my credit card account. To date that has not happened.
                When I contact Customer Care by email, I get the standard reply that my email has been sent to the appropriate department and that someone would contact me at their earliest. No such luck.
                I would like to know if Gulf Air has the particulars of my credit card so they can post the refund. I would also like to know when I could expect that to happen.

                    Gulf Air & Opodono refund for a cancelled flight ticket number: [protected]

                    On 12th September 2015 I booked a flight from Abu Dhabi to Dammam on Gulf Air, via Opodo. I cancelled within an hour (which required a telephone call to Opodo) as I found a more direct alternative.

                    Since then I have not received the refund. Opodo (many calls all at premium rate since they dont handle customer complaints be email) says the payment went directly to Gulf Air so they are responsible for the refund. This is borne out by my credit card statement.

                    Gulf Air says that refunds can only be issued by the travel agent I booked through. Neither company talks to the other leaving me stuck in the middle. They have been passing the buck back and forth for more than 9 months. Neither side disputes that I am owed a refund, they just deny responsibility for paying it.

                    In the mean time I am out of pocket by GBP437.20.

                        Dear Luciana
                        I did not book twice, only once - it would not have made sense to book the same flight twice. The route was very busy, your site was also quite slow, and I was booking from Abu Dhabi, so could have been an IT problem. In fact even before I called to cancel I got an email from Opodo saying that it was unable to confirm the booking. Thus even if by some glitch there had been two bookings, one was cancelled by phone and the other did not go through on your part. If that subsequently changed you never informed me. In any case, I made nearly 20 calls to your customer service line over the last 9 months. NONE of them mentioned anything about double booking, which casts some doubt over your claim.
                        I still insist that I am due a refund - neither Opodo nor Gulf Air have ever disputed that over numerous emails and phone calls. The issue is that each side passes the buck to the other, leaving me in the middle with nothing.

                        Dear RichardMK,

                        Thanks for posting your review and bringing this issue to our attention.

                        We would like to inform you that we have checked your case and we have found that on September 10th, you made the same booking twice and you contacted us to cancel one of them. This booking was correctly cancelled and not charged by the airline. However, the amount you are claiming corresponds to the ticket not cancelled and not used. In this case, the refund will be done as per fare rules.

                        One of our agents will contact you with further information.

                        Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by this issue.

                        Kind regards,
