Egypt Air .. Disaster

On my last trip to Cairo i flew Egypt Air


Their seats are better than Kuwait Airways ill give em that


There was no Tv so I had to entertain myself


Then the food came . . .


I liked that they were using plastic
i prefer it to silverware


I had the chicken which tasted part like fish,
and part rubber.


My sis ordered meat which she refused to even taste,
and i dont blame her!


They had a sponge cake
Literally.. it tasted like dry sponge


but i came prepared and snacked on my ferreros
yum!

Egypt air.. never again
ill try wataniya for my next trip


So what was your worse travel experience?

May 11, 2009 at 12:48 AM  

definitely kuwait airways, flight from kuwait to thailand.. sucked big time!!! the air hostess kept looking at me like i was a bug, treated me like a dog, and i wont be surprised if she sneezed in my food.. ;p

Did you just go to egypt?

I've never traveled egypt air, and I never had high expectations for airplane food with the exception of those cheese block things.

May 11, 2009 at 1:34 AM  

hmm, worse airplane experience:

a small plane in Victoria Island, Canada that decided to stop working midair for a few seconds..

not too much fun!

emm..I'd say Kuwait airways!

May 11, 2009 at 6:53 AM  

im so glad ur reading the god of small things! i hope u cry! in a nice way :p it made me cry so CRY! CRY DAMN IT!!

May 11, 2009 at 7:13 AM  

Turkish airlines are the worst in the world!

May 11, 2009 at 7:57 AM  

I'm not surprised the food was awful. My worst experience has to be Olympic Airways when I went to Greece...the comment box is not big enough for my rant. Old planes, bad service, bad food, lost luggage oh and for some reason they decided to keep the lights on in the cabin full beam even though it was a night flight - so no shut eye either !!

May 11, 2009 at 8:17 AM  

Worst travel experience: Qatar Airways!!!

It had just been operating. They say food is from sheraton o amazing o blah blah...

On the way to london ok fine.

On the way back home, they say they want us to get off the plane for one hour. They take us to a hotel, supposedly the best in their capital but the elevator not working o we had to use the service lift which is AWFUL o creaky o from a horror movie scene!

Then they take us back to the worst WORST airport on earth (1999)... with a baqala for a duty free and one restuarant called sterling serving byriani, o we wait and wait for HOURS... maybe 10hours... we thought we were never going back home again!

O their women had been with their barage3 sitting on the floor o their men yeshelon falcon on their hands 3adeeeeeeeeeeee wala china ib ma6ar... 7asha bel badiya ga3deen!!!

Atharee our airplane had to go to sirilanka to pick up passengers o come back to take us to q8

never again im i setting one foot in that airline or that country for that matter... i dont care how good their airport is now that experience will never fade away!!!

May 11, 2009 at 8:31 AM  

did i tell u that i loved the left mesh silver shoes by the way?!

rashaw 3lekom fleet in Egypt air?

May 11, 2009 at 8:32 AM  

Kuwait Airways the stewarder didnt serve me arabic coffee cuz i was a woman. i was gopsmacked. Never again KUWAIT AIRWAYS ITS HORRIBLE

May 11, 2009 at 8:54 AM  

all of gulf air trips......

May 11, 2009 at 9:29 AM  

i hate egypt

that's from experience

May 11, 2009 at 9:31 AM  

Well on one Kuwait Airways flight I think we had already flown two hours before they landed us BACK in Kuwait because something like an engine broke and fuel was being squirted out into the sky? Something like that. We went back to Kuwait and waited for hours before getting on another KU flight to go back.

Oh and once on some foreign airline we were delayed because there was a guy they thought was unstable. In the end they decided to make him leave the flight but I wish they had decided sooner because we waited for maybe two hours?!

May 11, 2009 at 11:12 AM  

welcome in Egypt but i think there is
anther good things you can let us know about it
however i like your viewpoint

May 11, 2009 at 11:19 AM  

I made big X on Egypt long time ago. Will never travel to that country even using the best airways!! And of course after your post I insist not to visit Egypt 6ool 3omri!
About my worst travel experience: it was with LUFTHANSA to Montreal!
15 hours without movies or music ;S
And I bet you won’t understand the English accent of their hostesses!! ;S

May 11, 2009 at 5:10 PM  

I hate it too :S

May 11, 2009 at 6:50 PM

sorry about ur trip though lol glad u had ur own snack and entertainment ;) i never leave the house without them :P

May 11, 2009 at 7:41 PM  

Why would anyone go to egypt anyway!

May 11, 2009 at 8:34 PM  

kuwait airways to london.. it got delayed more than 2 hours while we waited inside the plane and the A/C was not working..

May 11, 2009 at 8:36 PM  

great minds danderma, i was just about to ask about the shoes! where from, please?

worst trip was a few years ago. our flight from geneva to frankfurt (or was it amsterdam? not sure if that was the time we chose klm over lufthansa) got canceled and if we take the next flight out we will miss our other flight from frankfurt (or amsterdam) to kuwait.

so the next flight that would take us to kuwait that day was via athens air. NEVER AGAIN. it was one of those small planes ili the whole plane was basically economy!! no leg room whatsoever, no tv screens no nothing.

my mums cousin would have to say kuwait airways. the plane was killa hnood and half way through the flight something smelly was dripping on her shoulder. the indian guy next to her's jar of ACHAR was leaking!! ACHAR, BIL6AYARA.

May 12, 2009 at 12:30 AM

1.I like the color of your iPod cover! Tis quite yummi!!

2.How was/is Egypt?

3.Worst flight? I can't remember which airline it was but they sat this couple with a dog (you know, the kind that consider their dog a human being)right in front of my brother and I. The thing yapped all the way in a 14 hour flight and the couple conversed with it the whole way too.

Suffice it to say...I got no sleep. and I now hate dog-people.

May 12, 2009 at 4:46 PM

May 12, 2009 at 6:52 PM  

my worst flight .. should be the one on Etihad airways :@
1st, it was my first time flying without my hubby :( so i was crying and all

2nd, the plane got delayed which meant that i missed my transit flight to Kuwait. but they said they'de hook me up with qatar airways and i'll have to go to qatar first ba3dain kuwait .. i agreed since the other flight on etihad was 7 hrs later.

3rd, when i arrived at Abu dhabi , they refused to get me on the qatar flight .. w i panicked w started yelling w screaming w crying .. i obviously didnt knw wat to do w i was alone :(

4th i was going back home for my brothers engagement .. on the same day .. w i couldnt go earlier coz i had examz :S

5th i got stuck in the airport for 7 hours. so i could get on the next etihad flight

6th, even that flight got delayed w i ended up getting to kwt at 8.30pm instead of 10am

the one good thing is after screaming w yelling they agreed to give me a room to stay for the 7 hours

7th, i went to my bro engagment with the clothes that were on me for the past 24 hours ..

soooo who ever had a worst flight plz tell me ... coz i'm sure i can beat you :P

May 12, 2009 at 7:33 PM  

Hmmm it was a last minute booking on lufthansa .. LA-Frankfurt, that was one long flight, the seat was horrible, the service was horrible and i hate their airport.
Bas my moms experience was worse. She had to take a flight 2 Riyadh cuz she had a conference there. I dropped her off at the airport at around 2 PM her flight was at 4, Kuwait Airways 6ab3an. She calls me at 5 and tells me to stay close (i.e dont go shalaih) cuz the flight is delayed. They kept on telling them your leaving in an hour oo they ended up flying 7 hours later at 11 PM or something. 7adha iksarat kha6ri. the whole time ga3da bil ma6ar.
OOOOH and once I had to go to a wedding in Cairo and I was flying q8 airways,a nd I could only leave the day of the wedding cuz i had work. The flight got delayed 4 hours, 3ala ma we9alt il hotel i had to take a 2 minute shower, and get make up and hair done and all that umbaih kan 3athab.
