Gulf Air CEO Quits; Airline Under Criminal Investigation

As good as it’s been for other Middle East based airlines, Gulf Air, the carrier co-owned by Bahrain and Oman, has struggled mightily.  And things just got worse.  Their CEO, who just joined 4 months ago, resigned yesterday amid the news the Bahrain’s government has launched a criminal investigation of the airline.  No word on what they’re investigating.  The airline’s chairman, who seems a bit feisty (in a good way) said, "Guys this is a public prosecution investigation; I want everybody to shut up."  You don’t hear that too often.

Gulf Air is reportedly losing $1 million a day.
