Pros: They had movies to watch
Cons: Boarding on time, departing on time and advising passengers of the delay. We sat on the tarmac for 50 minutes without any communication. In addition, we waited an addition 45 minutes for our luggage. Thus, requiring us to change our plans. Well not be traveling Egypt Air again.
Pros: The crew is amazingly kind. The seats on the flight have a good amount of recline and the entertainment system is good, though you can't turn off Arabic subtitles.
Cons: I would not recommend flying through Jeddah. Any time there is terrible. The airport is not equipped to handle the volume. There is only one restroom for 3000 people, no seats. An attendant was using the bidet hose from the pit toilet to spray down the floors and the entire bathroom was wet.
Cons: 1 1/2 hour delay out of EBB meant missing the connecting flight -- not uncommon apparently. No one was available at the transfer desk in Cairo for over an hour. The alternative through Rome & onwards put us into Munich in late evening.
We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.
We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.
We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.
Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
