I’m going to make this one mainly a picture post, with a few thoughts thrown in here and there. It’s funny, but I’ve actually reached a point where flying has become a bit more of a “chore” than exciting – except when it’s a really exotic airline or destination. For example, the Daallo Airlines flight (sans seat belts) from Somalia to Djibouti was definitely memorable! However, with the exception of seeing what the deal with EgyptAir Business Class really was…this was nothing special.
If you look anywhere online, EgyptAir gets a REALLY bad rap for having a business class that is essentially economy with a couple extra inches legroom. Sort of like domestic first in the US, except it’s a dry airline, so no booze at all. We’d purposely booked this flight on the 777, since we knew it was their “new” business class. I have to say, the seat and meal (with the exception of being dry) was comparable to any US or European offering. The crew, however, was absent. They threw the food at you, and you never saw them again. Sort of like a US airline on a bad day. 😉
