Use your miles for a "last minute" upgrade
We have yet another exclusive benefit for our Gold and Silver members. It's part of our ongoing drive to make your membership as rewarding and as flexible as possible.
You can now request an upgrade reward while you're relaxing in the Gulf Air lounges at Bahrain and Dubai airports!
All you have to do is enquire at the service desk at least 60 minutes before your flight is scheduled to depart. The lounge agent can check and tell you immediately if you have enough miles in your account to claim the upgrade, and then make the request for you.
As you'll appreciate, upgrades are subject to availability; if there are no seats or catering available in the class requested, we're very sorry but we won't be able to upgrade you. But we do promise to keep you informed and confirm your seat status at least 30 minutes before departure. The miles required for an upgrade are detailed in your member’s handbook or online. When upgrading from Economy to Falcon Gold in the Gulf Air lounge at London Heathrow Airport, there will be a charge of GBP 40 in addition to the required miles. This is a passenger duty we are obliged to pass on to HM Revenue and Customs.
Of course, prebooked confirmed upgrades continue to be available if arranged in advance through your local Gulf Air office.
With this benefit, plus all the extra premium services like our revolutionary Sleeper Seats, award winning onboard catering and Sky Chefs, there's simply never been a better time to fly Falcon Gold with Gulf Air.
We look forward to welcoming - and upgrading - you soon!
