Kuwait Airways 343 Flying KWI-JFK Non-stop

Wed Jun 06, 2001 9:36 am

From justplanes.com

Kuwait Airways will upgrade its Kuwait to New York JFK service operated via Frankfurt to a nonstop service on 24Jun01. The airline will operate one of its weekly flight with no stops increasing to 4 a week.

Schedules as follows :
KU117 KWI 0900-1605 JFK 2100-1700 KWI KU118
This flight, operated on Sundays, will be flown with an Airbus A340.

If Kuwait Airways can fly non-stop, why can't Emirates do the same thing with their 777?

It's probably a matter of choice. MAS has been flying the B777 between DXB and EWR for a while. To the best of knowledge, MAS does not have the longest range version of the B772ER.

Didn't Kuwait fly the JFK flight via LHR, and wasn't it on a 777?

I'm almost positive. Or was that out of EWR?

Kuwait has operated B747, A340 & B777 at JFK. In fact, this past Sunday, the B777 was used.

At present all 4 KU flights to JFK are operated by B777.Three are via LHR and one FRA.This new flight is going to replace KU175 that operates on sundays via FRA. I think its a good move by KU at the right time of the year.

Emirates cannot do DXB-JFK nonstop with a full payload of pax and cargo. Hence they don't do it.
