LHR-Kuwait are usually 777-200s I think,with the occasional A340-300(but locals to LHR correct me if wrong) and I think they operate A340-300s to BKK. I haven't flown on them, but this might be of some use.

A few friends have just returned home from university for the holiday on KU102/411, 772 and 343. They found KU to be surprisingly good, comparable to Emirates. You can expect to find the usual gadgets available in other world class airlines, PTV, footrest and so on. All flights were on time and the food was great.
To them, the only downside to KU was the 4 hours of transit time in KWI before catching the next flight to BKK - and after a 7 hour flight I doubt one would be in the mood for shopping.
KU had local cabin crew onboard flights departing BKK when they were still codesharing with PR on BKK-MNL route. Not sure if they still do - but that's always a nice touch.
Being a Muslim carrier, any idea if KU's also a 'dry' airline like Royal Brunei?
With the current situation in the Middle East, Middle Eastern airlines in BKK (I'd expect the same elsewhere) are now slashing prices to Europe - including KU so you can probably expect to see full flights to Europe from Asia packed with students in the beginning of next year.

Thanks for all the replies guys. They are offering LHR-BKK return for only £279 which is a bargain - so I think I will book the tickets today.
Airmale - I have only British nationality, I am not Israeli and have only been there once on business. In fact, because I was born in Abu-Dhabi in the UAE I actually had loads of trouble clearing Israeli immigration - especially when I told them my two flat-mates in London were Iraqis!!!
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

I was joking, incase you're not aware a couple of months back KU off loaded a British/Israeli passenger who was travelling from LHR on his Israeli passport to India via Kuwait, either his travel agent played a smart one on him or he was foolish himself or he wanted to create a diplomatic row
