Hi

Just wondered if anyone had travelled to BKK with Air Oman via Muscat ?

If so what was the flight like - I see they have just changed from Airbus to Boeing Dreamliners - personally I prefer the Airbus but I suppose it depends on the configuration.

Any recent first hand experiences would be appreciated

 

Regards

More and more airlines using Dreamliners  now, Oman Air, Qatar Airways, Etihad Airways and Gulf Air, do remember last year my return flight was on a Qatar Airways 8am departure from Bangkok it was almost empty had big choice of seats and because of that I did enjoy the flight very much, leg room in these dreamliners is suspect I also prefer the Airbus over the dreaminer seating is mainly 3-3-3. If your flight is full it can be rather uncomfortable because of the leg room. Oman Air and Emirates are the only 2 airlines I have not used yet in my 48 visits to Pattaya.

Used Oman lazt time i came to bkk. Flight delayed 3 hours at Manchester for technical problems. 787 was the best one i have been in, quite comfortable compared to Qatar's 787's. 

Missed connection in Muscat but given hotel inside airport and food vouchers and rebooked on next available. 

All in all I thought they were a good airline.

I've flown in Oman Air Dreamliners five times in Business, the last few times they were fitted out with Apex Suites and flying doesn't get much better than that. Last year I flew with them once in Economy on a Dreamliner, I think it was the BKK to MCT leg. Bloody awful, I've been on cheapo charter flights from the UK that had more legroom. Luckily the flights were very quiet and I had all three seats in the centre to myself so I could lie down and stretch out a bit and the lack of legroom didn't really worry me. They have a big issue with everybody in economy being on board around an hour before take-off, daft as you just sit there for ages getting thirsty, but certain other airlines are almost as paranoid. In summary then, for business class they're generally excellent and reasonably priced. My one experience in economy left me underawed, but the price was right and the lack of passengers made it quite a decent flight in the end.

Have flown LHR-MCT-BKK and return at least 8 times. Originally used a A330 From LHR (34 " seat pitch) but now both legs are 787. LHR leg is normally full but BKK legs have been around 30% full.

Food and entertainment no better or no worse than any other airline I've used.

Flying economy 2 x per year earns silver status, check in at Business/First desk and Lounge access, a nice way to relax.

Go and try other airlines, then come back and tell us about the ones giving them away for free. Not many of them left I think.

555, It's getting cheaper to fly business, at least most airlines don't charge for pre-booking your seat (apart from Bloody Awful, of course).
