TR FRA-KWI-DXB-SKT onboard KU and EK *FINAL Update*

Post by Hamad » Sun Mar 27, 2016 12:45 pm

This time decided to take a longer Route from Germany to Pakistan by using two different Airlines - Kuwait Airways and Emirates.
I booked for the First Leg a Seat on KU from Frankfurt to Kuwait and for the 2nd Kuwait-Dubai and 3rd Leg Dubai-Sialkot Emirates.

Interesting Visitor at SKT was an Antonov AN-124 (for the first time ever) that has landed just before us.

I really enjoyed the Trip and Flights and like to share some Pics I have taken (please apologize the quality especially the night shots as I have used my mobile phone)

Check In at FRA - Alhamdulillah الحمدُ لله my Luggage was checked through until my Final Destination Sialkot although its going through 2 different Airlines. Proceed to the Lounge to have some breakfast.
Image

KU's newest A330 in the fleet 9K-APD - View on the RR Engine from my Seat
Image

The new Business Class is still not on the level of other Airlines in the Region but much better and a great improvement to the old outdated J Class on the over 20 year old A343, etc.
Image

Pushing back...View on FRA's Terminal 2
Image

Image

Cleared for Take-off at Runway 18
Image

Image

View on Frankfurt Skyline and the Airport

Lunch was served shortly after reaching our cruising altitude
Image

Image

Image

Image

A few hours later got also some fruits
Image

Passing beautiful Sceneries over Turkey and Iran
Image

Sunset somewhere over Iran
Image

The Seats were not completely 180° Full Flat Bad - but the Angle was quite good and enough to have a comfortable sleep
Image

Approaching Kuwait

Final Approach and Touchdown

Image

Arrived at the Gate next to a KU A343 and 772

Kuwait Airways improved a lot especially on their Cabin Product - Service was great and Crew were friendly.
I would give this Flight 3,5 out of 5 Stars.
Upcoming Parts: Leg 2 EK860 Kuwait to Dubai on Emirates and Leg 3 EK620 Dubai to Sialkot on Emirates


Thanks for watching - As Always Comments are welcome

Sorry for the little delay - was a bit busy yesterday.

So here is coming the final and last leg Emirates Flight EK620 from Dubai to Sialkot.

Visiting the famous Emirates Business Class Lounge in Concourse B which is quite amazing especially concerning the area size
Image

Image

Boarding a quite new 777-300ER Reg A6-EPE (5 Months old) for my Flight to SKT

Image

My Seat 2K

Business Class Cabin (was quite empty this time - maybe 20-30% Load)

Some Flight Info
Image

Pushing back and Taxiing
Image

Image

Ready for Takeoff at RWY 30R
Image

Sharjah
Image

Image

Sunrise about one hour after takeoff
Image

Breakfast was delicious but I haven't eaten much as I wasn't the hungry after all of the other flights and Lounge visits :D
Image

Image

Beautiful sceneries on the way to SKT
Image

Image

Image

After I have realized that we were on a too high altitude for Landing at SKT I recognized that our Flight was not given Landing Permission for the moment as the AN-124 was landing at the same time - Actually we made 2 turns over the Airport and with the 3rd Approach we landed Alhamdulillah الحمدُ لله safely.
Image

Image

Image

Final Approach
Image

View on SKT Apron and Terminal Building - QR A320 waiting for Boarding for its Flight to DOH
Image

Image

Image

AN-124 landed only a few minutes ahead of us (btw as far as I know it visited SKT only for refueling)
Image

Image

Image

Image

The upper Floor of the Terminal is still under Construction but looks now much better than I have seen it last time. Cant wait to see it when its completely finished.
Image

Hope you enjoyed watching them ;)

You are welcome - thanks for your Comment :)
I will try to take also some shots on my return flight or at least have a closer look on the Terminal Construction. While I have read recently that according to the SIAL Chairman the Terminal Building should be completed by the end of this year In sha Allah اِن شاءالله
