    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.
