Thanks.
We flew to CAI from ATL in January for a fare of $708 including taxes and junk fees. DL to JFK, then OK (Czech Air's symbol, I think) to Prague and on to Cairo. This was the lowest fare I've seen. Lufthansa via Frankfurt was $840. It coulbe less from NYC.

A note of caution: When flying OK you get into Prague early AM, and leave late PM, so you can have a whole day of sight-seeing in beautiful city. Or, you can have a hotel room and 2 meals on them. But you do lose a day and get into Cairo at 2 am. Also, OK does not fly PRG-CAI daily, only on some days, at least in winter. Check their web site.
