I LOVED MY EXPERIENCE!!

Sep 20, 2019

One free checked bag up to 50 pounds, and a carry onvallowence of 17 pounds or 8 kilos - carry on bag wasnt weighed so it's not necessary to stay under that weight for the carry on which most people didnt.

Convenient flight to Cairo. Nothing special.

Jul 19, 2018

Flying through Egypt Air is an eye-opening experience. Their customer service and attention to detail throughout the flight will make you want to travel with them again and again. Service, such as food and beverages, were spot on. They were friendly when some passengers were getting rowdy, and patient with everyone’s need.

Pleasant experience but seat selection did not go through. The agent was kind enough to put us together but we were originally in separate rows.
