Having not been to CAI before (but having read various reviews, most of them middling to poor) is a 50 minute turnaround likely to actually happen?

Looks like BD will be entering into a codeshare with Egyptair on this route and we will aslo be able to earn DC miles on MS (at least between LHR and CAI) by the looks of it.

bmi also announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding with EgyptAir, which will see the carriers enter into reciprocal codeshare and frequent flyer agreements shortly. This will enable passengers to benefit from reciprocal flight codes on each airline’s flights as well as frequent flyer programme rewards and benefits. Return fares on the new bmi service to Cairo will start from £878 business and £299 economy (including taxes and charges)

Oops, sorry I didn't read that far back! I assume some moderator magic moved the thread I started here. However I would still think that the BEY and AMM news warrants its own thread given that it is nothig to do with the Heathrow-CAI flight and might otherwise get lost here.

That is not in any way to criticise the moderators which I know is wrong

A quick search using keywords "bmi", "website", "redemption" and "sh!te" will soon reveal the answer to your question.

ANA check shows availability, so I would think you can call up to book it. But as I posted earlier, if you are gold member and have upgrade vouchers, the redemption would costs about the same in cash element plus tax!

The cheapest fare of £299 ....
Pricing structure looks very old-school : if you don't stay a Saturday night the cheapest economy fare is a socking £779.

Does BA offer one-way pricing?

Don't think so. Can;t imagine MS would be overly happy with BD offering cheap one ways either.

One way pricing just ends up driving fares down so there is no reason for BD to want to do that so long as they can get enough bums on seats. The LCCs have forced the likes of BA and BD to introduce one way pricing on European routes but until such a time as the competition start low cost one way fligths from CAI to Western Europe there is no reason for any of the airlines to change the status quo.

Personally I look forward to the day when all air fares are priced one way - maybe it will happen?

Don't know about that but I think all will be revealed in a week or two when BD confirm their winter flying programme.
