Egypt Air Economy Class
Posted on By Global Traveler
Flying from Frankfurt to Bangkok offers nonstop connections with Lufthansa and Thai Air. The direct flights are the most comfortable solutions, but a bit expensive when booked one way. The reasonable pricing of Egypt Air was the reason for me to give them a trial during a trip in November 2018.
Frankfurt to Cairo
The first segment of the flight was from Frankfurt to Cairo on Egyptair 786 on a single aisle Boeing 737 aircraft (see B737 seatmap). The flight takes a bit over 3 hours and a full dinner is served. The following layover at Cairo airport lasted around 4 hours.
Cairo to Bangkok
The second leg of the trip lasts just a bit over 8 hours. It is a comfortable flight. The seats are in good condition. An overnight kit and head phones are given to all economy class passengers. The overnight kit is a surprise. Very few carriers bother to provide this comfort to their passengers in economy class. There is a foot rest for more comfort. Egyptair 960 is conducted on an Airbus A330-300 aircraft. The flight is not sold out, but pretty full.
