  1. Can you do the Residence by Etihad? It's kind of expensive, 30,000 dollars to be exact. It has 3 rooms, a living room, a bathroom (yep, your own bathroom!), and a bedroom! When I stayed there, I honestly thought it was one of the best experiences of my life!

  2. Love your videos. Only question I have is how can you afford to fly so frequently and in business and first all the time! You're so lucky

  3. I love this video but 1 problem, that is Why you not play games in inflight entertainment? If I was there, I will try 1st Games and then I will test others stuffs. I love to going anywhere by flight. So, please check games out!

  4. You're very young, so you may not be aware that from the 1960s to the 1980s, British Airways (and its predecessor BOAC) had a MASSIVE presence in Bahrain. I'm talking about a dozen or so 747s every day at the height of their operations there!

    The reason was that back then, even "long-haul" planes, such as the 707 or the 747-200, didn't have a lot of range, so refueling stops were needed to reach Hong Kong, Singapore or Australia. Additionally, Soviet and Chinese airspace was practically forbidden, so most routes from Europe to the Far East had to go via South Asia (apart from the routes from Europe to Japan and South Korea via Alaska). Lufthansa used mostly Dhahran in Saudi Arabia, other airlines used Tehran-Mehrabad before the Iranian Revolution or went further to Karachi or Bombay (now Mumbai), but Bahrain was the big star of that route.

    Bahrain had the best airport in the Middle East at the time – Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha were still just small, sleepy fishing ports, and I suppose fuel was cheaper in Bahrain, too.Then Oman started to offer better fuel prices and landing fees, I guess, and some BA flights were routed via Muscat instead, but this didn't last long, for soon came the 747-400, the A330/A340 and the 777 with longer range, the USSR collapsed, China opened up to the world, their airspace was opened, and the stop in Bahrain or Muscat became unnecessary.

    Lastly, 50 minutes from Bahrain to Doha? I'd guess 25 minutes at most, with the plane never reaching even half its normal cruise altitude. And yes, I have seen "Carol", absolutely beautiful, and Cate Blanchett was extraordinary!
