You’re mixing apples and oranges. It used to run via LHR both ways as a revenue stop (carrying pax LHR-JFK and v. v.) whereas now it aspires to be nonstop but has to stop in Shannon to clear security because US authorities don’t trust Kuwait to send a plane to the US nonstop without the chance of something untoward happening. No traffic rights, just get everyone off, through security, back onboard and go. And obviously nonstop back because the perceived security threat doesn’t exist out of a US airport.

Also, there still be a demand for MS CAI-LAX, not sure if MS would re-start LAX via Europe, best via an StarAlliance hub without LAX service or via major LAX European market without StarAlliance flight.
