True, you'd have to pay me that sum for taking MS, since their hard and soft product is utter rubbish.

As an airline of another Islamic country, EgyptAir does not serve alcohol on its flights, but passengers passengers can transport alcohol, and those who bring their own alcohol on board will be permitted to drink it and will be served glasses, ice, and mixers by staff.

So buy from duty free and bring aboard? This gives me another option to get home if there's a light PAX load as I do want to try this airline out and a longer flight time is no problem if libations are involved (I am aware of being drunk in public or on an airline such as this)

Yes, though they do have a wide variety of soft drinks

Not for a pension would I fly them - once was quite enough.

I remember flying with them a few years ago and even though smoking had been banned on airlines for a while they were still letting people light up in the back of economy!!
