On the Fly: United Global First® to Kuwait City

I’m venturing to Kuwait for my first time, and what a better way to start the journey than with 12 hours in Global First® to KWI.

United service tends to always be first rate.  Departing from Washington Dulles, I spent a little time in the Lufthansa lounge (my personal favorite at IAD) before boarding direct to Kuwait City.

Aboard their Boeing 777, the service features:

  • Flat-bed seats that recline to a full 6-foot, 6-inch bed
  • Hot towel service
  • Customized dining experience with menus featuring appetizer, salad and choice of entrée, including local cuisine where available
  • On-demand programming with a 15.4-inch video monitor with more than 150 hours of programming on all 767 and 747 aircraft, and select 777 aircraft
  • Premier Access check-in, baggage handling, boarding, deplaning and security lanes (where available)
  • Access to United ClubSM and Star Alliance® member lounges
