We've seen these fares ex-CAI for years now. Not really breaking news. Just go to Google flights and search; no need to deal with the clickbait above.

True, various versions of this have been around forever, some of them allowing much more exotic routings than this particular version.

After our last CAI-HNL trip for similar price, had an interrogation at DFW with border officials and have got my SSSS since.
So wife has said no more Ex-CAI trips😭

If she doesn’t like ex-CAI there is some ISB-HNL fares for $1650.

As someone who has flown two or three ex Cairo deals in the past and takes an occasional look at pricing this is the best I have seen for a while and as such the post adds value to me. I will go straight to Matrix rather than any website but may be helpful to those new to the game. In any case, thanks OP for highlighting this.

On a side note I never encountered any issues with entering the US after originating in Cairo but could just be luck.

Could be racial profiling ( they do deny it but such is the way of the world now). I have been stopped and questioned / interrogated multiple times, whether SSSS or not. Used to it and expect it, particularly entering US.
Good prices from CAI though.

Yeah on my ex-CAI I was detained for ~3 hours and missed my connection at JFK. That was with Global Entry too. No SSSS though. I did get to explain the concept of a mileage run to the CBP Agent; he didn't get it.

Agreed. I'm usually profiled as "non-threatening". Got the SSSS once, and it made zero difference to the process.

That's a good idea, no links to professional websites, only to search engines for fares...

DFW should be available for a similar price if there's availability
