Seeking EgyptAir help…..

I’m trying to help finalize the details for the trip my brother and mom are taking to Egypt next month, and right now we’re trying to book the intra-Egypt flights. They’re looking at booking CAI-LXR roundtrip and CAI-SSH roundtrip. For two people this comes out to around $750 total for all four flights on the US EgyptAir website, while it comes out to half that on the Egyptian EgyptAir website.

I tried booking it on the Egyptian EgyptAir website, but when I enter CC info I get an error message, seemingly because I don’t have an Egyptian CC.

So any thoughts on how to get a cheaper rate? Is there some consolidator that could sell us the cheaper flights? Is there any sneaky way to book on the Egyptian EgyptAir website?

I started a thread on FlyerTalk about this, but haven’t received a definitive response, although there have been some good suggestions.

So, does anyone have any ideas? Any help would be appreciated, either via the comments section below or via email at onemileatatime@hotmail.com.

  1. Lucky,

    I’m heading to egypt in a couple weeks and I booked everyhing on the english egypt air website. This is what I got for 1 person

    $297 for: CAI-LXR; LXR-ASW; ASW-CAI
    &
    $198 for ALY-SSH; SSH-CAI
    =495 for 5 flights or $99 a flight

  2. Is the fare on ExpertFlyer? If it is, then without meaning to state the obvious, have you tried your local travel agent? 🙂

  3. Have you tried calling AMEX Plat travel service. I booked my trip on AZ from Baku to Dubai through them and they were able to get me a very low business class fare.
