Gulf Air - Alcohol Free?

Gulf Air - Alcohol Free?

No, you make not have a drink.

If you are a frequent flyer of Gulf Air and like to have a drink or two on your flight, you might have to resort to going back to biting your nails for a little bit of nerve comfort.

Parliament in Bahrain unanimously voted to ban the serving of alcohol on the Gulf Air flights, since they claim it Islam bans then from serving alcohol.

Although it is sometimes hard to argue with forcing people to do something against their religions, Mona Almoayyed, who is president of Bahraini Businesswomen Society, points out that it might, “start with this and it will end up with restrictions on women.” That,”  it is a matter of personal freedom,” and , “it is not a matter of alcohol.”

Of course in this world economy and market for almost all airlines, they can’t really afford to lose much more profit. No matter what happens with this situation, I just hope it doesn’t spread to many other airlines.
