Excellent 8.3

Pros: Better than expected. Was as good as American , Delta, United. Not quite to the level of Aerlingus, Lufthansa, Emirates.

Cons: Stewards did a good job but were not engaging with the passengers. Not as friendly as could be. We would definitely fly Air Egypt again

Mediocre 3.6

Pros: Didn't like anything

Cons: Old aircraft, rude crew, terrible food and by far the worst in-flight entertainment

AMM
CAI
Mediocre 2.0

Cons: I couldn't get my boarding passes online or at the airport kiosk after already checking in online before getting to the airport. I had to wait over an hour in line at the checkin desk just to get my boarding passes. The boarding process in Cairo was even more chaotic with unnecessary multiple disorganized checkpoints and line ups.

Good 6.3

Pros: Check in and boarding was quick & nice The pilot was so professional couldn’t feel take off & landing The host serving the food in this economy section was so polite & helpful

Cons: The plane is old style no tv screen in the chairs The Entertainement was so poor & boaring for 11 hours flight! One host crew member (maybe Joe) was changing his shirt in the food area that passengers could see him with his undershirt!

Good 7.0

Pros: Well, it got me from Point A to Point B I guess

Cons: You cannot book seats in advance which is fine but one would expect that if you have 3 seats on one reservation, you would at least be seated together - nope 3 window seats all over the plane. Boarding was delayed for no reason. Bags took (no exaggeration) about 1.5 hours to come. And it is a hot mess with no carts

Mediocre 3.2

Pros: Nothing to mention

Cons: Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!

Pros: Seating is tight. The crew was great !

Cons: As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
