Agreed. Actually much better than using the website. They just have to add custom/multi airport selections and it's perfect.

Kuwait airlines are notoriously poor. Pay the extra £££ and go on a proper airline

You....are....an....idiot.

Educate yourself, I mean you probably can't read, so I guess a simplistic documentary will have to do...I suppose you could try Fahrenheit 911, it's a start.

The last time I checked the history books they detailed the invasion of Kuwait in 1990 by Saddam Husseins Iraqi forces and British troops being involved in forcing Iraqi troops out of Kuwait in 1991.

No they aren't... They are nowhere near the best but they get you there in relative comfort with onboard entertainment and meals.

Maybe for those weird people who still see flying as an "event" it is going to be poor, but for those people in the 21st century who use planes to get you to places,

It's quite hilarious really - you never hear people on National Express coaches demanding meal service to their seats, touch screen entertainment with the latest blockbusters still in the cinema etc. There is no logical reason why you need it in an aeroplane any more than a coach, and anyway, you get what you pay for.

Are you retarded or something? If you're gonna sit on a cramped crappy Plane for the best part of 8 hours the least you'd want/expect is a Beer or glass of Wine with your Meal or any other time you feel inclined to be honest. If your an Adult and can look after yourself and not go over board drinking alcohol is an enjoyable experience and not one I would have an Airline dictate to me if I can indulge or not. Nor some Left Wing Do-Gooder Tee Totaler for that matter. ;)

USA is 6 hours behind. Let you do the maths.
#24
Part of the USA is 6 hours behind - JFK is only 5 hours behind.
Flight times are always given in local time, so outbound flight time is around 8 hours, coming back around 6 hours.

I flew London to JFK with Kuwait Airlines. Never ever again! The second time I flew Virgin and on a deal there was barely much price difference.

It was a horrible flight anyway since 50%+ of the passengers who were already onboard at London appeared to be ill coughing all over the place.

The flight was very delayed LDN -> JFK and again delayed on the return. My first day in NYC was lost to it.

There was no alcohol as mentioned above. You better like curry. The onboard entertainment didn't work makign it a very long flight since I packed light based on the onboard entertainment!

As do Ryanairs (near enough) yet loads of people still have hissy fits over them... And of course they are cheaper - the distances they travel aren't remotely close to the distance the plane will take you....

Regardless that was more or less my point... You don't pay much for a National Express journey, you don't get much. You don't pay much for a flight, you don't get much.

You only expect that because thats what other airlines do. And I can personally survive sitting down for 8 hours without requiring alcohol (surely a sign of an alcoholic).

Yes, when available it's enjoyable, and I take advantage of that on the non-dry airlines, but I'm pretty sure most people can survive the experience. You're free to pay extra and go elsewhere if you need to, but it's hardly "retarded" to not require alcohol at any given time. As I said, to most normal people the flight is a means of transport to get there, not part of the holiday.

I think you will find 'most normal people' drink regularly on flights and expect it to be included or at least available. Its a valid point to highlight as Im sure many people woudl think twice about booking a long haul flight knowing it was gonna be dry. Only the minority would see flying long haul as a Bus Trip to the Beach and expect or want nothing more than a Seat.

In this day and age every where every single Airline Operator is looking to shave a few ££ off of a flight surely the free drinks and food would be the first to go if they or their customers did not expect it?

I can survive 8 hours on a flight without a drink, infact I go many many weeks away from Booze due to work but Ill never, ever fly a dry flight if there was an option to fly with a Bar. If Im gonna fly, (and I do many times a month) Im gonna do it with a glass or 4 of Champagne! ;)

Maybe i'm abnormal but all i want after my meal is a cup of tea!

Booze would make me too drowsy at the other end, especially if i'm picking up a hire car or want to get stuck into sightseeing. Love New York, by the way

I think the point's being missed here in relation to them not serving alcohol. They don't serve it on the flights because consumption of alcohol is against their religion, and they choose to enforce this on their airline. If you want to exercise your right to drink alcohol, you're gonna have to choose an airline whereby they don't observe a religion that forbids it.

As such, this deal isn't for you. For those that can manage with a tomato juice, and want to stay 17 nights in New York (!), then this is a deal!!

Of course most normal people drink on flights - why wouldn't you if it's being given out for free? Most people don't drink on National Express coaches conversely, whereas if they were given a free drink, most people would. Great job of completely trivialising it... A national express journey from London to Edinburgh takes longer than this flight does - no-one expects anything else on top of that. My point being that the ONLY reason why people expect these things from flights is because they CURRENTLY EXIST. There is no logical reason why you couldn't go 6 hours without a drink on a plane whereas you could on a bus.

Well that's YOUR CHOICE. Just because you'd rather pay extra to get alcohol on board, doesn't mean everyone else would. I personally fly with the cheapest operator I deem safe - whether that be with alcohol being served or not. I can't say my 1 long haul return on a dry airline felt any different to the others.

Flew with Kuwait in the early 90's from what I recall then, they where fine. This was before all the personal entertainment units where fitted into planes. I had to make do with Hear no Evil, See no Evil, and lots of Tom and Jerry :D

Cant be expecting Emirates quality at this price. FWIW other more expensive airlines aren't so brilliant either, recently flew with BA to Houston and back, and it certainly wasn't cheap, and nothing to write home about.
