Nightmare

Traveling with Gulf Air is!

my original route is Amman - Bahrain - muscat - Bahrain
scheduled
departure time is 3:30 arrival at Bahrain 5:30
departure from Bahrain to muscat 8:30 arrival in Muscat 10:30

Actual

Departure time was 11:20 PM arrival in Bahrain 1:45 Am this morning.
re-scheduled departure to Muscat 8:45 Am this morning ... Actual (we'll see)

I need to be at a meeting at 1 PM in Muscat, then i shall return to Bahrain same day at evening

After arrival they gave me a voucher for a 3 star hotel, could not leave the Airport because i already have a visa in bahrian , and if i use it, i cannot come back to bahrian this evening!!

The only solution: Stay at Bahrain Airport to till 8:45 morning .. Say what??

well, this is probably going to be my fifth all nighter at an airport, but the first time in Bahrain!
Anyway, after some argument with the so called "Gulf Air Customer Care center" i found my way to the business lounge where the i can find a couch and a clean bathroom.

Anyway, tomorrow is not going to be a day for rest either!

I cannot say there is a lesson to learn (which is never travel with Gulf Air) because this is something l learned before! however, each time i say to myself, give them one more chance. Addi tonally, RJ timing to the Gulf region is not helping either
