Kuwait Airways is a small, often overlooked airline. It operates a fleet of 31 aircraft, which include 11 wide-bodies. Prior to the COVID outbreak, Kuwait Airways served 43 destinations worldwide.
Despite being small, Kuwait Airways offers a decent first class product on its 777s. The airline’s fleet of 777-300ERs is just three years old, and they feature eight spacious first class suites in a 1 – 2 – 1 configuration. Although Kuwait Airway’s soft product isn’t especially remarkable, it’s perfectly serviceable. The only thing the airline lacks is alcohol service – Kuwait Airways is a completely dry airline. And Kuwait Airways has one big benefit that most airlines can’t match – no children are allowed in its first or business class cabins.
Starting in January 2021, Kuwait Airways is offering some pretty solid first class deals between Africa and Asia. First class on the Cairo (CAI) to Bangkok (BKK) route, which includes a layover in Kuwait, is as low as $2,741 roundtrip. There’s no maximum stopover for this route.
