KWI | Kuwait International Airport

I welcome all to Kuwait Airport and Aviation thread.

I heard that SriLankan Airlines (UL) is leasing an A320-214 (9K-CAB) from Jazeera Airways. Delivery to Colombo (CMB) on the last week of this month (November 2010). Does anybody know the status of the aircraft ? any pictures with SriLankan livery ? Thank you.

now we do expect an expansion of KU network and new planes to compete with EK and QR at the best

IMHO

I think it's an adapted, yet largely recycled, version of Foster's Beijing aiport terminal (which, as Foster and Partners themselves state, is based on their Hong Kong terminal),
Part T5C (that's the one with the check-in and baggage claim):

Take the steel roof off;
Increase the dimensions, especially the central space;
Add a roof with a connection to local architectural language.
