Good find! Works also ex LXR and to many destinations in Asia (SIN, KUL, CGK) for as low as 790.

TYO is 1000, MEL 1490.

This is not a great find. Its currently daily price. Basically most SEA with larger competition can be done below 1000 Euro in C. BKK even around 800 Euros.
Also for JNB,NBO, etc.

Don't you love cold-water pourers ?

Perhaps more useful to point out that neither Alexandria nor Luxor are generally within the easiest, or cheapest, airports to reach for positioning.

Luckily for me... But anyways, this fare is quite normal for Southeast Asia.

Would love to see sub-2K to Australia.

At HBE lounge right now

I'm actually sitting in HBE right now, to positing for one of the deals that was around last month.

Took a taxi from CAI takes about 3 hours (an Egyptian friend recommended getting from one of the desks there) to get to HBE. The lounge here is horrible no food or drink but a nice lady came and brought us a stale sandwich and cappuccino. The taxi with a 2 hour stop at the pyramids was 68 usd not cheap for Egypt but not a bad deal.

the check in staff are a bit in unwilling to bend any rules as my carry on bag was 5kg over (they said 2 bags at 10kg wax for Biz) and as I had only 1 I thought why would it be a problem. Anyways after arguing and even talking to the supervisor I know have a trash bag (my second bag) with exactly 5kg of clothes in it and that's ok apparently. As I have a 7 hr 45 minute layover tonight in Doha I wanted to have my clothes. I literally had 6 flights in the pst 3 days all on Qatar and never once did they care.

did I mention I'm on the a380 in first Tommorow morning. I have a great first class experience with my trash bag full of clothes 😜

Anyways the lounges here are crap and security actually seems tougher then cairo, HBE is a small airport looks like 10 gates maybe.

Smile Is it safe to travel Egypt (update please)

Hi Bison,

Is it safe to travel in Egypt? Pages of this topic aren't updated since 2017.

I need to position there and thinking of spending one or two days to visit Giza Pyramids.

Sorry for posting in wrong place, please move if deemed necessary, mods.

Thanks in advance.

6 gates total at HBE - tiny! But security with army as you drive into airport, security check
for passport and travel documents before you can WALK to terminal entrance, another security check for passport and documents as you enter terminal, another passport check and bag scan, THEN you can check in. Then once checked in, customs and another passport check for security to gates and passport check again before boarding... ....ed up lol
