There's some information about money and roster pattern in mcginley email, and it seems to be very nice.
Looks like we will have the other important information, like upgrade, on the interview.

Make sure you know how to serenade a Porn Star in Cruise Flight over the Atlantic (on thy way to US, nonetheless!) or know how to ‘grow balls’ and assert yourself on the captain who’s ‘makes-his-own-rules’.

I thought KAC stopped flights to US as they refused to take Israelis??

I left KAC in Dec 1979 so a bit out of date. It was a sh** hole then and probably still is.

I think they only stopped selling tickets on the New York - London sector, therefore the route is sold as a journey between New York and Kuwait, and as Israeli passport holders aren't allowed into Kuwait it gets around discrimination laws.

There is also a Manila - Bangkok sector where the question of Israeli passport holders could come up but the fifth freedom rights are currently suspended by the Philippines in a dispute overt traffic rights in the Middle East for Philippine carriers.

Kuwait Airways website has no provision to enter "Israel" as country of birth or citizenship so Israelis can't buy tickets.

Life in Kuwait is not that easy for expats like in Dubai, almost everyone here hates Dubai, so imagine how Kuwait would be, I have heard that the Arab captains are pretty rude and bossy in the airline.

I heard that US flights are going to route via Dublin instead of London. US pre clearance is available from DUB so it makes the arrival a bit easier. Slot availability, lower charges and increasing loads may come into it. Of course, if they won't sell tickets to Israelis there won't be fifth freedom rights.
