Would you recommend Kuwait Airways for long flights?

asked Jan 7, 2017 in Activities by anonymous
Direct flight to the States in economy.
I know they 'renovated' but I'm still a bit worried (no offense)
I am mostly looking for comfort really - and the ticket prices are pretty good so that's one con I guess

If you get one of their new aircrafts then it is definitely the best option to go for.

- More legroom for sure.
- Service is pretty similar if not better than others (for an economy ticket).
- You'd save on transit time;  and flight time (if you choose Emirates or Qatar for example where you'd be taking an additional 2 hours fly time minimum).
- Entertainment system is great and up to date. it has less content that others (Emirates) but still great.

Sadly, no guarantee that you'd be getting their new planes. Especially that I don't think Kuwait airways operates their A330s on that route.

Does Kuwait Airways still have direct flights to the States? I remember reading the NY flight now stops in Ireland first.

This is correct. You need to pass through Dublin to preclear immigration on route to USA

You're never going to find comfort on Economy long haul flights. On any airline.

Emirates or Qatar are excellent options

-1 to that.

Emirates and Qatar offer comfortable economy on long haul flights. With great service levels too!
