MLA (Malta) to BKK via CAI. First leg on the EgyptAir Express subsidiary clean comfortable and smart new Embraer 170. An excellent light meal served. CAI-BKK an old and slightly shabby 777 with no personal entertainment and only one (Arabic) movie shown on the large screens. Leg room in economy excellent. Two meals served both average and uninspiring but not terrible. Cabin crew on both legs were efficient but not as polite or friendly as with some airlines. One attendant spent most of the MLA-CAI leg chatting to a passenger she seemed to know. No alcohol available on either flight. Check-ins were very smooth. All in all I was pretty satisfied given my low expectations and the fairly low price of my ticket.
