We originally had economy tickets, but I think due to few passengers and weight distribution we were lucky to get business class seats. The flight was very good, plane was clean and on time. The only negative thing was the service which could have been a bit better, then it would get 5 stars. Would definitely fly with them again.

Flew from Terminal 4 London Heathrow 😞. Chose to fly with Kuwait due to cost, markedly cheaper than other providers. London to Kuwait and on return on this part of journey was in a very new 777. Other leg of journey from Kuwait to Islamabad and return were in well worn but seemingly maintained aircraft. Changes also apparent in staff....

Our two adult sons were traveling together from JFK to Delhi for their sister's wedding on Feb 17, 2017. At checkin, the agent rejected our older son's Indian visa because the passport number on the visa contained an extra digit at the end (the complete number on the bottom of a US passport) and refused to let him board. His...

This was the worst airline I have ever flown with. Everything was so bad it would take me all day to write a review. I wouldn't fly with this airline again even if they gave me a 1st class ticket for free.

The plane was the broken down old one, what a disappointment. The guy next to me wanted to get his remote out of the arm rest so he can turn on the tiny tv...it was stuck...so one of the staff got a knife to help him. It didn't help. The chairs are terrible but at least they recline to kind...

I flew with Kuwait 🇰🇼 airways from Beirut to New Delhi, I had a stopover in Kuwait airport, the airline offered a free dinner at the airport lounge. The flight was safe, and the cabin crew were nice and helpful, they offer free upgrade during the flight, because the business section was empty, I was one of the luckies
