Egyptair customer review

(South Africa)

Good value for money. Efficient staff ordered special meal and arrived as ordered. Planes rather old and tired duct tape holding things together in the bathrooms for example but good leg room. Easy interchange at Cairo - travelling Johannesburg to Paris via Cairo in Economy. Recommend for people on a budget who are not expecting too much.

Egyptair customer review

(Thailand)

Bangkok – Cairo return. I almost booked business class but thanks to the previous reviews I didn’t. I am glad I didn’t waste the money. The seats looked very small and very little leg room for business class. On the other hand economy was quite comfortable. The food was fine. The portion on BKK–CAI leg was small. The breakfast consisted of 3 pcs of bread. But the portion on CAI–BKK was more. Nothing wrong with the service on the ground and on the flight. The plane was dated but was not a problem for me.

Egyptair customer review

(Switzerland)

Bangkok - Nairobi stop-over in Cairo of 17 hours. On both Egyptair flights the seat was extremely uncomfortable (defective head-rests which kept sliding down behind the back; sleeping impossible). The inflight-entertainment was terrible - only one third rate movie was shown - the same on both flights. The music programme did not provide a real choice. The food was mediocre service unfriendly. Drinks were not provided during the night. Very good is the provision of accommodation during the Cairo stop-over at a 4-star-hotel near the airport. However before I left on my journey a local Egyptair rep told me that no accommodation would be available. She recommended that I spend my time in Cairo - between two overnight flights in the heat of July. After two hours at the very cold Cairo airport I accidentally found out that Egyptair provided rooms to stop-over passengers.

Traveled today from Guangzhou via Bangkok to Cairo. Food in business was good and plenty. Cabin crew was okay apart from the purser. Seats were very bad. Only 45 degree angle at the most and not so much leg space. Sleeping hardly impossible. When front seat declined backwards you could not get out of your seat anymore. Price was cheap for this flight in business. But I recommend to invest maybe 300US$ more and book a better airline.

Egyptair customer review

(South Africa)

We had a return flight from Johannesburg via Cairo to Europe. All went well flying out but our return flight Cairo to Johannesburg was delayed for about 6 hours. Instead of departing at 0030 we departed after 6:00! We were disappointed in the way how Egypt Air treated us during the delay - no explanation given. We were told every hour that the flight is still delayed another hour or so. No blankets or pillows were offered and we were lying on the floor trying to sleep as we had to sit right through the night! Every official we spoke to just shrugged their shoulders and walked off!

FCO-CAI-KUL-CAI-MXP for 420 Euros return. Service and food on all flights was good. Load on KUL-CAI was only 40% so able to stretch out. Due to the long time between the flights in CAI (6-7 hours) they offered us a free hotel stay in the Iberotel including dinner and breakfast. The staff managed to fill out all paper work (transit visa) within 30-45 minutes. We had a great value for money on Egyptair.

Johannesburg-Cairo-Moscow in Business. Old style seat on Joburg-Cairo leg but quite good for sleeping. Lots of legroom. Staff friendly and fairly attentive. Moscow leg in regional type plane also with older style seats big seat and very comfortable. Staff on this leg more attentive and caring. All flights on time.

ATH-CAI-KUL return Economy Class. We arrived CAI at 16.30 impressed with the new T3 nice clean and organized. We had connection flight to KUL in the night at 01.15. Due to wait of 8 hours for the next flight to KUL Egyptair staff welcomed us and offered us to stay free in a 5 star hotel (incl transfer + buffet dinner). All flights were ok cabin crew food and seats okay. In general for what we paid we had an excellent service.

(United States)

KUL-Cairo-JFK flight business class was not on par with any long distance business class we've ever flown. The chairs barely inclined and were very uncomfortable even for our 2 young daughters. We ordered vegetarian food which was extremely bad. They gave us boiled vegetables with no seasoning in business class. I'd hate to think what economy class passengers ate. We'd rate the service very ordinary and really not worth the amount we paid for the class of service expected. I don't know about value for money in economy but it was absolutely not worth the amount spent on business class to travel this route.

Egyptair customer review

(Saudi Arabia)

RUH-CAI return on Egyptair. Check in at Riyadh was utter chaos. Every Egyptian traveller on the flight was at least 40 to 50 kilos above the limit. Check in delayed because of constant arguments over excess baggage. RUH-CAI sector serviced by fairly new B777 but there was no IFE and food extremely basic. No additional water provided by staff or drinks offered after meal service. Several babies on board but staff did not bother providing seat belts and neither did the staff check passengers seat belts on arriving in Cairo. Safety standards very lax. The return trip was an antiquated B737.500 Staff a bit more attentive but service was very mediocre.
