BAGHDAD is in the news flight-wise, with Iraqi Airways dropping its services to the UK and Sweden after a row with Kuwait over war reparations. Last month an aircraft owned by the carrier was impounded at Gatwick on the basis of a court order obtained by a lawyer for state-owned Kuwait Airways. Kuwait has a significant war repatriation claim against planes seized by the Saddam regime. Iraq is now threatening to wind up the airline which could leave Kuwait with no financial compensation. On a positive front, following the successful introduction of flights to Erbil from Frankfurt in April, Lufthansa will on 30 September introduce a four times per week service from Munich to Bagdad, the service operator flights flown by a PrivaAir Boeing 737. www.kuwait-airways.com www.lufthansa.com
