Gulf carrier Kuwait Airways has come up with a very interesting first class fare that is available with departure from Cairo. Tickets to Bangkok are available for as little as EGP 66,251 (~€2,041) with a change of planes in Kuwait in both directions. Manila can be reached for EGP 72,692 (~€2,239). The fare shows great availability in the entirety of 2023.
While you can enjoy sixteen hours of travel time in a first class suite, this offer has three notable catches – no significant mileage, two long layovers in Kuwait City and a total lack of alcoholic beverages both during the layovers and flights.
Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to our flight search with your selected flight dates. You can proceed to Kuwait Airways, which is the safest option to book these tickets. You can save up to €200 when booking with online travel agencies.
Our calendar only shows connections with a maximum of twenty hours travel time. If you are willing to spend more time in Kuwait City, availabilities are even broader.
Flights between Kuwait, Bangkok and Manila are always Boeing 777-300ER services. These planes are equipped with First Class Suites called Royal Suites. These have received mixed reviews, but the hard product is a positive aspect. As a dry airline, Kuwait Airways does not serve alcoholic beverages during or between their flights.
While your Royal Suite experience between Thailand and Kuwait is sure, you need to be careful if you want the suite-experience all the way. While on some days, another Boeing 777 operates flights between Cairo and Kuwait, there is also an Airbus A330-800neo flying on this route, sans first class suites. However, you can tell them apart easily on Kuwait Airways website.
Search & Book
The fare rules for this flight don’t give any restrictions, not even a minimum stay. At time of writing, availability is brilliant all year round.
You can find suitable flight dates on Google Flights, though it is prone to some inaccuracies. We recommend booking premium fares directly with the airline, so on fly.kuwaitairways.com in this case. Booking there brings another benefit, as you can easily if Royal Suites are offered on all four flights at a glance:
The airlines differentiates between First and Royal. Only if Royal Suites are available on all four flights, the price for that category will be displayed. If planes without suites are deployed, you can only purchase tickets for First.
Kuwait Airways issues tickets for all flight segments in booking class A. Since not many airlines co-operate with the airline, your earning opportunities are limited to the company’s own Oasis Club.
Hotel prices in Bangkok usually start at roughly €25-40, depending on the hotel category and specific dates. Whichever category and hotel you opt for, make sure to get the best price! Our recommendation is to search on booking.com, or even on our own Travel-Dealz hotel search:

Thailand is an increasingly popular holiday destination for Europeans – both beach and party tourists get their money’s worth in the South Asian tropical state.
