Route choice YOW to KWI

Thought I would ask if anyone has any suggestions on going from Ottawa to Kuwait City. Trip is planned for 18 to 24 Nov, any suggestions??? Would like to stay with Star Alliance if possible but open to other suggestions as well.

I have been going via FRA to DXB and connecting to EK for the final leg to KWI. You can shorten it quite a bit by taking the YOW-LHR flight and connect to the EK flight. 1 hour and 20 minute connection in LHR.

I always stay around DXB for a few days though.

I see that AC and Kuwait both use T3 at LHR.

The other option would be BA (from YUL) which uses T4 for both YUL and KWI flights.

BA is a 14h connection going and a 2h30 connection coming back. (Kuwait is a daytime flight eastbound, BA is a red-eye).

Yeah, but then you would miss out on the Irish Village experience in DXB

assuming you want to avoid the USA and YYZ, yow-yul-fra-kwi is your best bet, I think.

Time it right and you can avoid all CRJs/DH3s too!
