Can anyone help me find some info on KU. Am thinking of travelling KU to JFK in the summer mainly because they are quite cheap. Anyone flown with them before? What are they like?

Might be reviews on either Carsurvey.org/air or Travelquality.com or both.

How much are they charging?

I'd personally go for KU, for not only is it cheap (in comparison to the next best quote) but it would also be a 'different' airline, an experience and you'll also get either the 343 or 772.

Check www.airindia.in

AI operates LHR-JFK daily on a 744 and regularly have RT fares for online booking that are even cheaper than KU.

Yeh I considered AI, but their fares were about £450. Just read some skytrax reviews on KU, maybe I will stick with EI, at least I can fly from MAN or LPL and connect in DUB, saves messing about in LHR at that time of year!

Have you tried getting DUB-JFK-DUB on a seperate ticket and CWL/MAN-DUB-CWL/MAN on another? Will be a bit longer in duration, but might save you some £££.

Unless you are traveling at ultra-peak season where the flights are already filled up, thats an incredibly high fare for AI. There is a "G" class fare that comes in around £300 inc. all taxes that is valid all summer long if your dates have availability.

I've flown KU from LHR to KWI, on the flight that originated from JFK. Fine flight. It was a 777, 2-5-2 configuration. They have both western and Arabic meals, standard IFE.

However, there is no alcohol, so if that matters to you, keep that in mind.

I have flown on KU LHR-JFK-LHR since the times the B 742s of theirs used to do the JFK runs.

Currently KU flies 3 weekly LHR-JFK-LHR flights with B 777-200s. I would rate the flight as 4 stars. Seat pitch in Y class is 34 inches and feel of the seat is very soft. The configuration for KUs B 777s is not 2-5-2...its 3-3-3...have flown the B 777 LHR-JFK-LHR 3 times in the last 4 years. I would recommend KU as its a nonstop flight plus very cheap fares...dont worry what other ppl say, their meals are good, cabin crew very polite and respectful and overall for 250-300 pounds, the flight is worth every penny.

I flew KU back in 1996 from LHR to JFKon a brand new A340. I can defenitly recommend them. Friendly service, In seat videao games and personal TV etc. I was even able to arrange a cockpit visit during the flight and they let me stay in the cockpit during the landing in JFK as well. Impossible now - I guess......
