    i believe bad things come in 3's, so the odds of another one imho are pretty high (statistically speaking).
    Me and Mrs SLG are doing some intercontinental travelling and requested a change..............be just my luck that Gulf do a swannee!

    Being restricted to Ryanair and Easyjet nowadays, I think am pretty safe.

    A friend has just booked a flight with them to oz for christmas, she was abit taken aback when I suggested she use a felt tip pen to write her name and postcode on each limb and her torso.

    I stopped flying with them when they were fined for not having enough fuel on the flight I was on. If it had been diverted our next stop was the ground somewhere between Heathrow and the next airport. :mad:

    Flew with them twice this year and had a third flight booked for a few weeks ago but due to illness wasn't able to travel.

    My carrier of choice together with Finnair for Asian trips

    Gulf are struggling, having been totally eclipsed by Emirates, Etihad and Qatar airways, so yes, you should be able to get a great dea. Beware, though, Bahrain Airport is a tip

    I have flown with Garuda....indonesia's national airline.

    If they stay in the air then anything will....both business wise and aircraft fleet.

    Rubber seals between wing panel access hatch's flapping around on takeoff..bloody scarey...and presumably still flapping at 450mph +

    Seats with broken recline mechanisms.......long way to Jakata sat bolt upright (not me luckily)

    Overhead lockers jammed with bits of card to stop them both coming undone and to stop squeaking and rattles.

    And their maintenance agreement is with KLM, the Dutch national airline

    KLM and Air France together are on my "no fly list" thanks to some awful experiences before. Garuda are on my company's no fly list

    Malaysian are great, especially if you travel in 'better class'

    Garuda use diesel !

    Each engine pod looks like a gas turbine but it really has a Toyota landcruiser engine buried in there
