Gulf Air review

GULF AIR’S new CEO Samer Majali, who very successfully held a similar position at Royal Jordanian, has been quick to announce privately a "comprehensive review" of the Bahrain flag carrier.  According to reports from the Kingdom he has spoken to employees pointing out that the airline was not currently sustainable and was receiving subsidies, which could otherwise be invested in other parts of the national economy.  He noted the challenges facing the airline industry at the present time and said that his plan was to develop a strategy that would fulfil the airline's ambitions.  The review has already begun and Majali hopes to be able to report "a series of clear recommendations" by the end of this year.
