New Gulf Air chief executive James Hogan has begun the process of steering the Bahrain-based carrier back to profitability, with a plan to cut costs, reduce staff numbers and bring in experienced international airline executives to provide "specialist support". The move comes just weeks after three of the four states that own Gulf Air - Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Oman - agreed to inject $82 million into the carrier. However, Qatar declined to take part, preferring to concentrate on expanding Qatar Airways.
