Tokyo to Athens via Cairo
Egypt Airlines

December 16-17, 2000

The Egypt Airlines are not famous for the quality for the service. However I can see some efforts. You can order Japanese style meal on the plane. You have to request when you confirm the flight.

I have used the Egypt Airlines quite often since 15 years ago. The good thing about Egypt is that nothing has changed like Pyramid. This transit waiting room is one of them.

This is a room of Movenpick Hotel, the transit Hotel. Since it is located outside of the airport, you need a transit visa which the Egypt Airlines will arrange for free for you. There is a sign saying "5-start hotel" which probably means it was built as 5-start hotel initially. The rooms are getting rundown at least for the rooms for transit passengers. They used to serve a great buffet breakfast. Very unfortunately They only serve cheap continental one. But it is still free for the transit passengers. You cannot complain.

The city of Cairo near the airport.

Good examples for the "planned city" in 1960'.

The city of Alexandrea, Egypt.
