Re: Asiana reduces LHR; leases slots to Kuwait Airways

London route from Kuwait has seen an uplift this year. KU was leasing slots over the summer to keep up with demand. Will be interesting to see jazeera’s impact when CAA posts their monthly numbers for November. I can’t see KU or BA customers flying Jazeera to London
