  1. Wow! The other Gary writing about Kuwait Airlines was actually a pleasure to read. No spelling or grammatical errors, it was amazing!

    And you know what else…? No CC Hawking… imagine that.

  2. Sounds like he had a better-than-average experience on Kuwait Airways. Seriously.

    On my regular DXB-BOM commute, KU in biz class (which usually winds up being the First Class seats on the BOM legs where they sell 3-class planes as 2-class) is usually the same price or cheaper than even the LCC nonstops. I tried it a couple times. Now I pay the extra to fly the LCC. Kuwait airport is a nightmare and KU service is a disgrace.

  3. I’m not sure that NZ postal box thing will work, but isn’t that something best left to comments and obscure blogs? Some opportunities are simply not scaleable to a mass audience like yours. Kind of like a mistake hotel rate: publishing it here is almost certain to get everyone’s reservaiton cancelled (aka Brown Palace Hotel, Denver).
