Yesterday I wrote about how Kuwait Airways just took delivery of their first Boeing 777-300ER, which represents a huge evolution for the airline. While the new plane as such is nice, what’s really noteworthy is the cabins that Kuwait Airways has installed on the plane, as they’ve finally added flat beds in business class and suites in first class.
That might sound like an obvious decision, but the airline also recently took delivery of A330s featuring outdated products, so…
Anyway, pictures of the new cabins have been limited so far, though it looks like Kuwait Airways has a unique way they’re showcasing the plane, in the form of a Mannequin Challenge. Here it is:
First of all, kudos to them on a Mannequin Challenge well done! It’s pretty amazing that they got a toddler to participate, and the kids in the first row of economy are pretty great as well.
In terms of the product, it looks like Kuwait Airways has eight fully enclosed first class suites and 36 fully flat B/E Aerospace Diamond seats, so it’s a reasonably premium-light configuration.
Still, this looks like a huge upgrade for the airline, and I can’t wait to fly this plane, especially given how reasonable Kuwait Airways’ fares usually are.
