    Consider EgyptAir if you can go from NYC – that way it’s a direct flight to cairo.

    EgyptAir is your only nonstop option, until June when Delta starts flying New York to Cairo.

    I’ve heard so-so things about EgyptAir. I’m taking British Airways through London only because I’m using mileage points. If I were you I’d pick a direct, or a flight through Europe (I’d go with Amsterdam since it’s a really nice and easy to navigate airport).

    I’m going with Iberia via Madrid. It was a really good price

    Hi all,
    l flew from Sydney-Singapore-Cairo with Singapore airlines-without doubt one of the best airlines. They definately get my tick of approval.

    when i went last summer, we flew united/luftansa via Frankfurt. I think it was a decent deal… plus i wanted the united miles. LA – Egypt = almost 20,000 skymiles!

    I flew from JFK/NYC with Alitalia with a stopover in Milan. No problems, all the flights were the good. the food was ok, the entertainment system (on the international flight) was great. I would fly them again.

    I’m flying American Airlines/British Airlines via London. London is a great option because there are a number of flights from London to Cairo, in the unlikely event that there is a problem with the original flight (i.e. canceled, or delayed).

    I’ve heard there Iberia has some really great fares from the US, connecting through Madrid.

    Hey Guys,

    Im an Aussie going on the tour that starts on the 15th March with my partner. I am flying from London to Cairo and it will cost 1K (AUD) return. Anyone know of any cheaper flights?
