Below is the part from my connection in Kuwait and the flight to Dubai:

Kuwait International Airport air side- A very nice and clean terminal but it's hard to spot planes as you have to go to the gate area for each flight in order to see the planes:

Then I went to a resto and they had a Persian style Kabob, which was very tasty. Kuwait's currency is the most expensive in the world I guess. 1 Kuwait Dinar = 4 USD. My food was around 4.5 Dinars, which is around 18 USD, not bad for the airport food, which is usually over priced any ways.

photo image587_zpsc51995e5

Their money is so strong that they have 1/4 and 1/2 Dinar bills too, very interesting :D

1/4 Dinar bill = 1 USD

Since the flight was delayed they were giving passengers a juice, which is still nice of them, most flights do not do anything. Then passing through security and in to the gate area

Economy - It was very cool, again the flight attendant walks you to your seat and shows you the seat, which is very nice

Conclusion

The legroom was very tight on this flight. The plane needs to be refurbished badly but does the job right. Only ok for short haul flights and not a good legroom for long haul ones. The legroom in their A320 is much better. The crew were very nice and professional though. Overall it was a nice experience to travel with KU. Kuwait airport is also very clean, modern, spacious and has a good number of shops and restos even though it's not a very huge airport.
