Online checkin and online boarding pass printout at CAI

Hello,

does anyone know if it is possible to checkin online for a ticket starting in CAI, and can one printout an online boarding pass ex CAI?

I am asking because I only have about 1:00 to 1:30 hours time after landing before my next flight leaves...

Furthermore, does anyone have experience with the transfer desk?

Thanks a lot in advance!

BP printing: no

transfer desk usually no problem but it takes time...

After trying another African airport and due to the NEK service to CAI, I wouldn't step a foot in Cairo for ages.

Can you give us a hint for which destinations it still makes sense to fly ex CAI?

I am currently in BKK with an ex AMS LX/LH ticket in Z for 1850 / all in.
And getting to AMS is very easy...

CAI to CGK has still very good deals in higher booking classes for Business and A for First.

ex-AMS or ex-BUD deals in Z are quite good.
ex-CAI makes sense in higher booking classes (D or C) for added flexibility.
