I live in PRG and saw the UA 747 many times there. They told me that they transporting US soldiers and stuff between Iraq and USA. They stop in PRG to refuel and rest the crews. The flights are operated on almost on daily baisis.
Next Flight: Oct 10: PRG-MUC-KIV EMB 195/CRJ 900, Oct 12: KIV-MUC-PRG CRJ900/EMB 195 wiht Lufthansa

PRG-KWI is crewed by LHR based flight attendants who deadhead one way, have a two or three hour sit in Kuwait and immediately fly back to PRG for a long layover. It was my understanding that we also have RIV (riverside military base) to PRG on the 744 as well. I believe we have daily service for this military charters.
A few of my LHR friends have worked these flights and say it's a blast! They also have a mechanic or two onboard on every trip as there is no commercial aircraft support at the airbase in Kuwait.
The debate continues... Starwood or Hyatt... which is better
