Any chance a US 121 Carrier flies direct? FedEx, UPS, or anyone else that is CASS?

Cool
Dunno what a CASS is, but Kalitta will get you as far as Bahrain, via JFK and BRU. They offer seats to almost everyone with an airline ID badge. Commercial tickets available between BAH and KWI on GF, a quick check on their website revealed a ticket price of around USD 270 return; I'm fairly certain that if you shop around there are cheaper options available.

FedEx is a regualar in DXB, and commercial tickets are also available from there to KWI. Who knows, Feddie might even serve Kuwait from Dubsie. You may also want to check out SHJ with either Atlas or Polar. It's a short 45 min drive down from SHJ to DXB. Air Arabia out of AUH (a further 1 hour drive down from DXB) is the local LCC in the area, you may want to check if they have a sweet deal on KWI.

I can't remember ever having seen the Brown Brigade in that part of the world, but maybe I just wasn't paying attention.

Best of luck.

Kalitta flys from EHAM (Amsterdam) to Bahrain/Kuwait most days unless the schedule has changed recently. You can call 800 521-1590 to find out or, look in the Kalitta web site at the schedule. Good luck.

Kalitta is transitting BRU for JFK, inbound from BAH via DXB, days 3, 5 and 7. JFK to BRU and onwards to sandpit days 1, 4 and 6.

Just called our Flightwatch dept, so the information is very much from the horses mouth.

Atlas Air

Atlas goes to Kuwait regularly, just checked the schedule and it shows 3 ways of getting into KWI on us: PIK, STN, or RMS.

Hey 747

Just curious on something. If someone is JS into RMS dont they have to have a military ID? Reason being last week SP's at RMS took a indiviudal off ATI that was JS reason told to us was that the person was not allowed onto the base without a escort. Plus walking off the jet into the terminal was not such a bright idea either.

C-5 MEM,

I don't believe you need a military ID, I don't have one, plus we carry mechanics, loadmasters and couriers all the time down there. I think that person just screwed himself by walking around on the ramp unescorted, and going into the terminal didn't help things much also!
