Just as a slight supplement to the LHR - LXR flights, here's the official Egyptair announcement of the recommencement of direct services to both London & Paris:

egyptair.com/English/News/Pages/EGYPTAIRe74a…

Seems you were literally hot off the press with relaying the news (not a bad thing for all those who've been looking for direct flights).

Just out of interest I've looked at the LHR - LXR fares for the initial service, with a return flight 1 week later, and the best economy fare is showing as being £410.75, though this will obviously fluctuate with demand & how far in advance you book your flights.

I doubt they will come down too much I looked at the Paris flights around £600!!

I also cannot find any Manchester to Cairo service on Egyptair website Manchester not even in the airport list.

I know they've been having problems with their booking engine today but my booking for MAN - CAI - LXR - CIA - MAN, in August, is still valid. The only changes, notified today, are that the outbound flight arrives at 20:40, rather than 20:45 and the return from Cairo departs at 09:05, rather than 08:40, but still arrives back at MAN by 13:30

Just to correct my terminology where I have put "Direct Flights" above read "Non Stop Flights" a direct flight means you land elsewhere but don't change aircraft or even get off the plane.

Just an update on the situation with flights from Manchester - Cairo and onward to Luxor.

Having got somewhat worried when the MAN - CAI service disappeared off the availability list, I gave Egytpair a call; I need to know in advance if they're going to reroute me, and was informed that they were waiting for Manchester Airport to approve their summer time table and were hoping people would be able to book flights from Manchester again, as of this week.

Good news, I checked yesterday and, thankfully, you can book these flights again (it appears the fares have gone down for when I'm booked to fly, so I guess old strategy of booking early to save money doesn't work any longer).
