This is one of the shortest flights in the world and the shortest I had been to after flying from Vancouver to Seattle couple of years ago. As soon as we took off, around 7 minutes into the flight the captain announced to cabin crew to prepare for landing and they very fast distributed these orange juices and we landed at Bahrain after 20 minutes of light from Doha and the captain said that we are flying only at the altitude of 3 KM from the sea level, very interesting.

Some pictures of Bahrain:

Bahrain's capital city is called Manama and is a very clean, safe and a nice city to visit.

Bahraini Dinar is also one of the most strong currencies of the world 1 Bahraini Dinar = $3 USD

The 5 Dinar Bill = $15 USD

10 Bahraini Dinar = $30 USD

Conclusion

One of the shortest flights in the world. Comfortable seats in British Airways with nice and friendly crew. Doha airport was very clean and nice but very hard to take pictures of planes due to circle shaped figures on most windows.
