Review: Kuwait Airways Business Class 777 Kuwait To Shannon

As our bus pulled up to the remote stand, I was happy to see that our flight was actually operated by a 777-300ER. Kuwait Airways' 777-200s are ancient, so I was worried we'd have a last minute swap. Fortunately that wasn't the case, and I was excited…
