Smile TR Kuwait Airways Islamabad-Kuwait-Frankfurt in F

Flight with Kuwait Airways ISB-KWI-FRA in F

Iam very sorry for the late post...Iam a bit busy with my studies so I have sadly not enough time.
Sadly I hadnt also time to made a complete Trip Report with Text - so this TR is primary filled with Pics.
But I hope you will enjoy it anyway.







ISB Departure Lounge

Flight from ISB to KWI was an Airbus A300 - Unfortunetely I havnt made any pics on that flight sector.


My Boarding Pass for Flight to FRA in KU's First Class




Kuwait Airways Lounge - nice Lounge with nice selection of Food.










I never saw a B747-400 operating to Frankfurt - so I was really happy when I realized that this Jumbo will take me back to Frankfurt. By the way as far as I know this is not a regulair KU Aircraft more it is a Aircraft of the Government of Kuwait.
You can see that on the Seal on the Aircraft and also later after Landing the Seal appears on the Screen.



Sitting in First Row in F - amazing Space in front of me Feeling like beeing in a Living room or in a Privat Jet




Shortly after takeoff...


...some Snacks were served including a cup of Tea

Inflight


Lunch had started - there was a great selection of different Kind of meals


I took some Chicken with Rice


Later visiting the Toilette


Somewhere over Europe


KU175 (B744) after Arrival at Frankfurt had continued its Flight to Geneve after this short stop in FRA


Air Transat and Emirates were parked next to KU

These were some gifts I got from KU



This chocolate was really delicious

Service onBoard was great - but KU has to update their Aircraft Cabin or has to buy new Aircraft.
Their First Class can not compare with other Arab Careers Business Class(such as Emirates, Etihad or Oman Air)

Hope you enjoy viewing the Pics...Once again sorry for not posting detailed Trip Report - will do it next time for next Trip.
But If you have any questions or comment feel free to post

Interesting trip report.

I'd venture to guess that all the extra space in F is for prayers during flight...

and I was about to say what a waste of space. I guess they could be used for prayers but wouldn't it be better if they could place that area behind the upper deck cabin?

The TR is missing the most important thing: How does the F seat looks like

Not one single shot of the F seat

Yea I was hoping for pics of the F seats.

Wonder why they didnt fill in the empty space with another two or so seats.

Thanks for sharing.

The only other pax that gets remotely close to that sort of legroom is the Pope!

Hamad, despite the massive leg room in F, the seats weren't flat beds, right?

Thanks for the pics - I was scrolling down hoping to see the actual seat instead of the bathroom

How many miles do I have to redeem to ride on the Pope's plane?
