The timing was off, the quality of food was below average. I would say though that the staff was pleasant and helpful.

Usually punctual, the flights normally board on time with almost no delay on arrival time. The service could be improved. The food is good and the seats have good legroom when compared to other airlines. Although in most cases it is the best airline for flights to & from Cairo they are not very well trained to handle flight cancellations.

Despite 1 hour delay leaving London the 777 we flew on was comfortable and food and drink was good. Individual seat displays was great and helped reduce the boredom of the 4.75hour trip. Transfer to local flight to Sharm was smootth if a little slow due to immigration checks by just 1 person. Return fkight on 737 was less comfortable...

Although the "hardware" used by Egyptair is not always the latest state of art and their fleet is not offering the best comfort, it is an airline you may like. There are two main reasons for it: 1. Normally, their punctuality and on-time performance is above regional average 2. Their staff is very helpful and experienced. So if you want...

Staff were very rude. Someone sat in my seat... so i sat in another staff told me to move even though it was an empty flight but instead of moving the guy who was in my seat sat me elsewhere. (I picked that seat on booking!) Staff hit my chair everytime they went past with the trolley. I missed food...
