It's a pity that Kuwait Airways did not inform SNN operations of this, they were supposed to be there until Sept and many companies have hired new staff in recent weeks to facilitate this flight. First anyone heard or the flight moving to Manchester was from the link above.

The KU117 is still listed as non stop from 26th March, so one wonders if the MAN stop will happen.

KU will announce MAN stand alone flights in July for an Oct 1st start.

I think they operated to Japan in the past as well, they did codeshare on Air China to Beijing when CA served KWI some years ago., its the only Gulf carrier not to venture into China on its own.

KU are moving New York tech stop to London Stansted Airport from Shannon starting from April, if all their flights are via SNN and later STN shouldnt they be extempted from the US rule on devices?

The UK on Wednesday also made similar notices to the recent US ruling regarding electrical devices such as laptops, etc but seeing it's a tech stop I don't how that will affect those items on this KU flight to New York with the stopover at STN.

Good news for Stansted though for getting this stopover and a transatlantic flight too albeit only a tech stop but still a good addition to the airports ever increasing airline portfolio.

What, no DTW? This thread is not realistic without DTW!

DTW fanboys, chill out. MIA and BOS fanboys have a sense of reality and must be of age and have real jobs!

Considering this airline's rattletrap fleet was static at 15 Airbuses and 2 Boeings for the last 2+ decades, fair to say this sort of expansion is the first of its kind this century.
