I know I was showing interest in the Raja Ampat Landbased trip, but I think I'm leaning more towards this liveaboard trip to the Red Sea now. And of course, I'm interested in the Nile tour package so mark me down, but I need to play with some numbers before I can book.

 

Jamelle your interest in the Nile Tour package has been noted both in the top post of this topic as well as under the Add Ons -> Land Tours list in Post #1 of the Red Sea trip Topic #4 Who's Going.

 

I will leave your question about how your flight arrival in Cairo syncs up with the tour for Kamala to answer... :diver:

I just booked the dive portion of this trip and want to book my flight (assuming I'll be doing the Nile tour package). The flight I'm looking at from LAX - London - Cairo arrives at 11:30pm on May 6th. If I fly in on May 5th and add an extra night at the same hotel (so I don't have to change rooms) will I still be met by a host at the airport on the 5th of May at 11:30pm?

 

I think so but I will double check. Also I have an air consolidator for this trip if you are interested in that. They can usually get either better rates or better seating etc. Let me know and I will check for you on the other.

British Airways canceled flights from London to Cairo for a week on July 20th, 2019:

 

From BBC: British Airways has cancelled all flights to the Egyptian capital Cairo for a week as a security "precaution".

 

So it's something to consider when doing your routing for this trip.

Cajun Diver,

 

Yeah, I'm already booked on British Airways, it's a nice direct flight to London and then on to Cairo. I'm flying a few days earlier than the trip starts and I have travel insurance so if British airways does cancel flights to Egypt, I'll have time to find another carrier that I can change to and my travel insurance will cover the cost.

I am thinking about switching to the Nile trip but still need to know when the flight leaves JFK on May 6th to Cairo or May 8th before I can book my airfare.

Or if I book a flight all the way through to Cairo I will land at 1 or 230 am, how can I connect to the trip hotel?

Thanks

Debbie

Hi dkal,

 

I wanted to get my flight booked and out of the way and the only direct flight across the pond from LAX was to London and then to Cairo and arrived at like 11:30pm on 7 May so I'd miss the whole first day. I decided to fly in a day early because nice hotels with free airport shuttles were very in expensive. I then booked even a few days earlier because I wanted to fly on a particular type of jet from LAX-London and it was only available on 3 May, not on the 4th or 5th. So I'm now arriving 3 days early (more pool time!)

UPDATE:

 

Hey gang I fully expect to have the final pricing for LESS than 11 people lined up shortly but since the pricing listed is for 11 people or more and we have about 9 people interested in the longer pkg including the Nile tour I think we are ok. I will connect our wholesaler with those such as dkal who need special help on flights. The balance will be taken care of as part of the pkg.

 

ONE REMAINING NOTE:

 

The price of the local flights go up when you do use Egyptian air for the int'l flights. It is not excessively higher but it will be more. Those are the final details I am trying to work out as this is a complicated trip and we have worked hard to give as many options as we can while still trying to offer some economy of scale.

 

Thank you for your patience especially as we start to lead another great SD.com trip to Hawaii!
