Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Kuwait Airways rose from the carnage of the Gulf War, knowing the climb would be a shaky one. Notwithstanding the advantage of being from the country with one of the highest GDP per capita in the world, there was much work left to be done. And work they did!
Competing in a highly-flooded market, Kuwait Airways knew it had to do something diverse to capture the market's attention, which was not something that would happen overnight. In fact, a total re-imagination was a must.
COME FOR THE COMFORT
Overhauling their fleet was Kuwait Airway’s first step. Discarding their old planes, Kuwait Airways began procuring top-of-the-line Boeing 777s, a majestic sight to behold. The 777s are now flying directly from Dhaka, with 12 weekly flights being operated.
The tool of comfort for a journey is, of course, the seating and how spacious it is. Around 290 seats make up the economy class. Decked out in dark blue and off-white, the seats themselves are inviting. Plus, there are fewer than most others would have preferred, meaning both leg space and space to manoeuvre.
Laid out in 2-2-2 configuration, the professional dark blue fabric does not dissuade one from the assurance of comfort. Split into two sections, the business class comfortably seats 36. Given the configuration, travellers find ample of space whether they are seated on the aisle or next to the window.
It also comes with the whole works such as lie-flat seating models, 750 hours of onboard entertainment and gaming on-board with the Panasonic EX3 in-flight entertainment system and plenty of space to rest your arms without worrying anyone else.
With the Kuwait Airway's exclusive Oasis Club, passengers will start earning miles every time they fly. Then use the miles to fly to any of the favourite destinations. The cards come packed with offers and discounts. In terms of miles, business class passengers earn 200 per cent of the miles travelled, first class, get three times more and royal class gets 3.75 times more. With an Oasis silver card, passengers get 50 per cent Elite Mileage bonus, the access to Dasman Lounge in Kuwait, among other things. With a Gold card, you get an extra piece of 32 kg luggage and 100 per cent Elite Mileage bonus.
All in all, Kuwait Airways is progressively gaining momentum in the blue domain of aviation.
