Either 330 or 777-200 might be a good idea to replace 300/310.

However, Kuwait Airways needs to pay their debt, then they'll decide to replacing 300/310. Also they might also order RJ's as well to establish a new regional airlines for Middle-east region.

I would guess the A321/332 or 752/763 are the likely options with the former one the more likely. As far as I´ve heard they don´t want to start a regional airline but operating some smaller planes (120-150) seats on regional routes. But I might be wrong.

Where did you get this information from?? Did your source hint what they might be considering. I dont think they will order something too big as number of pax is not very large.This would be interesting what they do now....i think A330-200 is a strong contender considering their route structure and it is also the leading plane in its league.

I think the A330-200 is a good choice for the replacement of the A300 and A310.

The 767-400, 777-200 or A330-200 would be leading contenders for the replacement of their A300/310.

I also think that they should also come up with a new livery.
