Egyptair suspends all flights

Post by crewmeal »

As of Thursday no flights until the end of the month. Mind you I can't understand why they're still flying to Milan and Rome. That's asking for trouble.

Well I just looked to book a flight with Egypt Air for the 22nd March and although I didn't book it was going through OK.
So perhaps EA haven't been informed yet.
I also got the notification Crewneal.

Come on guys....the minister only made the decision this morning!

On the plus side, he sounded quite positive about the future so I may yet get here mid April.....that’s if EasyJet haven’t mothballed their entire fleet. :lol:

The obvious thing to ban would be Friday prayers - and Al Azhar have sanctioned such as step - but nothing mandatory yet, although some local action.
