After getting refreshed, we headed to the gate which was at the other end of the concourse.
The aircraft model for this flight was mystery until I saw it from my own eyes. At the time of the booking it was mentioned as A333 then it changed to B777 and finally a week before the flight it became B788. I was happy as I have never flown it before but bit skeptic as I checked FR24 in that week and saw the aircraft changing between A320, A321, B777 and B787. But finally when I reached the gate it was the Dream)Liner.
Internet Kiosk inside the boarding lounge.
The boarding commenced about 40 mins prior to departure time. The flight had a full load.

IFE box. Not large as the one in A346.
IFE Controls. The Screen can be operated by touch too.
Seat pitch and width was bit tight but alright for this short hop. Not sure about long journeys.
The IFE looked slow and the system time was wrong.
Pushing back and taxiing.
Didn't expecting a service in this 35 minute flight but the crew quickly distributed some orange juice as just as we were reaching our cruising altitude of 12000 ft.
Oops… I forgot to take a pic before finishing it.
By the time the drink service concluded, the captain announced that the descending has started.

We parked next to this Oman Air 738. We were not given a jet bridge and had to use the buses.
Buses waiting for us.

Heading to the immigration.
My father went throught the immigration without a trouble. But when I handed over my visa document to the officer and he entered something in his computer and sealed the entry stamp in my passport. But just as he tried to print the receipt for service fee collected the system got stuck. He took my passport and went to his boss and asked me to be seated. Bit of a panicking situation!
He returned with his boss after about ten minutes and the boss was able to issue the receipt. Welcome to Bahrain!
Outside the airport.
Will be back with the reports of my return journey soon.

Manama - BAH
It was a short pleasant trip. Nothing much special. Appreciate the drink service provided for such a short flight.
