Gulf Air has 20 of these A330-300s on order, due to enter service in 2011.
While seating capacity and configuration is not yet known, we can reveal that the A330-300 will feature Gulf Air's new Falcon Gold full-flat bed, a hybrid first/business product that is yet to be unveiled.
The Falcon Gold premium product (but not the new seat) takes to the air from March 1 2010, which according to Gulf Air will offer "the very best elements" of its first class for the price of business class (see Business Traveller's report, link below). Passengers will be seated in either business or first depending on the flexibility of ticket purchased.
