Egypt Air JFK-CAI (Lots Of Pictures)

Fri Apr 13, 2007 5:02 am

Well since this is going to be my first Trip report I don't know exactly how that would work, but I promise to give my best and hope you all will enjoy it. (I included a lot of pictures but something was wrong with my camera the quality wasn't normal and I didn't notice until I downloaded them so accept my apology)

Flight Information:
JFK-CAI
Flight: MS 986
Aircraft Type: B777-200
Departure Terminal: Terminal 4
Arrival Terminal: Terminal 1 Hall3
Gate: 25
Seat: 31K
Date: April/02/2007
Scheduled Departure: 6:30 Pm
Actual Departure (Push back): 6:50 Pm
Take off: 7:50 Pm
Take Off Runway: 31L
Schedule Arrival: 11:30 Pm
Actual Arrival: 1:10 pm
Landing Runway: 05L

An overnight trip 11 hours from JFK to Cairo, Last time I flew EgyptAir was on Jun 2005, I was so exited to see how they changed from the last time I flew them.
I was working that day and I had my luggage so I can go straight to the airport since the check in time was suppose to be around 3:15 PM, I arrived at EgyptAir Counters on Terminal 4 around 3:30 it wasn't that busy, waited for about 15 minutes and then checked on seat 31K ( it's on the right side of the plane, the plane configuration is 3-4-2), after check in you have to take your luggage to be screened; I dropped them and then went home( I live about 10 minutes from JFK) took dinner with my family and then took the air train back to the airport, went to the security around 5:30 where it took me few minutes to clear.
I walked to the gate where I found a line waiting to board the plane; I walked around a little bit where I sit down to drink some coffee and to take a look at the plane, which was SU-GBR(NEFERTARI)

My Bird waiting for me


Loading Cargo


Nice Looking Engine


Some Pictures for VS in the gates next to us


more VS


The Camera shows the front of the plane


Look at Terminal 3 while Delta is on the Push Back


More terminal 3


Just after we pushed Back


JFK Tower and T4


Wide look into remote stand, you can see Both EK A340 and B777


The other side of T3, Planes are waiting to join the line.


Just before we board the plane there was two security guys that checked my carry on, then walking on the jet way towards the plane where a female FA great me and show me which direction should I take towards my seat(The flight was Full no Empty seats unfortunately).
The push back was late about 20 minutes because there were some late passengers, short after boarding the TV start with some prayers, then the Safety video started with Arabic then English. after push back we start taxing towards 13R where I thought we will take off but a few minutes later I found out that we were just getting in line going towards 31L which took us 1 hour until we finally hold short for takeoff and then we turned to the runway and the pilot started rolling without stopping, the takeoff was smooth with a sharp left turn short after lifting from the ground.

After 30 minutes to the flight:
Altitude: 33000 Feettttt
Speed: 575mphtt
Distance to destination: 5383 Mile
Time to destination: 9:30


The in-flight service started with Dinner that was served after about 1 hour in the flight. For the main dish I was offered the choice between either Beef or Fish.
I took the Beef which comes with potatoes and Vegetables (Carrots & Broccoli); also there was Tuna Salad, Cheese, butter, Cracker, bread and Strawberry Cream Pie as a desert. Honestly the food was very delicious.
After the dinner they FA was offering drinks either Coffee or tea, and about 20 minutes later they started collecting the Trays and deemed the cabin light to allow passengers to sleep.

Dinner






Short after they started the first movie which was The Queen (Excellent), then short term after the movie and a drink break, they started the second movie which was Mustangs. We were in FL370 flying tailwind which changed later to FL390.





Since the flight was at night so most of the PAX went to sleep, I spent the time watching the movie and reading my book and did write some of this report.
About 3 hours left on the flight they played a third movie which was Arabic Movie (Ali Spicy) during the movie and about 2 hours from landing they start serving the Breakfast.
we had a Continental breakfast; consisted of Croissant, Bread, Yogurt, Jam, Butter and Orange Juice.











After breakfast was served we started preparation for landing, we circled over Cairo so we can start final descending from the south part of the city, and we landed on 05L.
After landing we taxied to the Stand where we were holding for about 15 minutes before we finally reached the Stand near Terminal 1 Hall 3 where Buses were waiting to take us to the Terminal, arriving to the terminal and clearing the Immigration and then claiming the luggage wasn't bad experience, Hall 3 is a small hall but it's clean and easy to figure out your way.

following are some pictures that i took while entering Egyptian soil and landing at Cairo Airport

The North Coast of Egypt, South of Alex.




The Pyramids area


Nasr City Area, Few Minutes before Touch Down


Taxing to Stand


Terminal 1


Terminal 1


Nouvelair


Sudan Air


Lybia Airlines


MEA, Notice the 2 Stored B743 in the Back


MS A340



EuroCybria


MS B735





Since this Report took more than I expected because of the pictures I decided to put the return trip in a Separate report which will follow this one so soon.

Thanks and Hope You enjoy it and hope I did a good job.

Actual Departure (Push back): 6:50 Pm

Taxiing at JFK takes forever , when i took this very same flight back in 1999 , it took us 45 minutes between pushback and take off .

Quoting CaptinTuT (Thread starter):
( it's on the right side of the plane, the plane configuration is 3-4-2),

I just love the 3-4-2 configuration on MS T7's , quite a smart configuration if you ask me : It allows both large families and small families to sit together .

Quoting CaptinTuT (Thread starter):
I dropped them and then went home( I live about 10 minutes from JFK) took dinner with my family and then took the air train back to the airport, went to the security around 5:30 where it took me few minutes to clear.

I guess it always helps if you live close to the Airport  Wink

Quoting CaptinTuT (Thread starter):
(The flight was Full no Empty seats unfortunately).

Good for MS , full plane even in the low season .

Quoting CaptinTuT (Thread starter):

I am happy you didn't forget to include pix for the meal services . It looks like the food was excellent as per MS standards , last time i flew them last year JED-CAI , the hot breakfast was excellent as well .

Awesome report ya Captin. Inshallah kont inbasat fee masr?

EgyptAir really are a top notch carrier.

What was your opinion of the cabin crew on board?

Quoting CaptinTuT (Thread starter):
After landing we taxied to the Stand

Did you happen to see the 'orange' T3 being constructed?

Quoting CaptinTuT (Thread starter):
Nouvelair

It would be interesting to know why the aircraft was there. Funnily enough Lotus Air wet leased one of their A320s (SU-LBG) to Nouvelair between 05/04/07 and 09/04/07.

Quoting CaptinTuT (Thread starter):
Lybia Airlines

Strangely this summer both Libyan Arab Airlines and Afriqiyah Airways will both have 5x weekly TIP-CAI-TIP flights that only operate minutes apart...both are owned by the Libyan government.

Not to nitpick but the aircraft in the hanger is an A340-200

They will surely be missed when they eventually leave the fleet.

Back then , Egyptair used to fly 4 times a week between CAI and JFK using a mix. of B747's and B767's ( both types have retired now ) .
Currently , the Airline operates a daily B777 service between the 2 cities .

Really enjoyed your trip report, and great addition with the pictures, especially of the meals served on board because they give us all a better idea of what actually was served. When people say that they were offered chicken or beef, or in your case, beef or fish, the picture shows a totally different meal than I would have expected with the veg and potato to the side of a nice portion of beef. Just something small that I can use now when booking clientel or groups onto foreign airlines, I can reference your description/picture and credit you with that, but it really helps especially when you compare some other pictures on here of what other international carriers have been serving on transatlantic flights lately

No alcohol on a 14 hour flight to Cairo?

I'd go into an epileptic fit.

That's surprising because its easy enough to get alcohol in Egypt at bars and restaurants.

the IFE system that they have consists of two things the first is the Audio which is about 18 Channels that plays different music Arabic, English and a channel with the holly Koran playing.
the second is the video which you don't have control and you just have to watch what they are showing.

That's strange, how is Yield on this route?

Libyans comprise the largest Arab tourist contingency to Egypt. Furthermore Libya (along with Jodan) have the largest Egyptian communities outside Egypt. Demand is clearly there, yet as with all intra-Arab flights, there are heavy restrictions on frequncies/capacity which consequently pushes up fares and yields. As I mentioned in this thread EgyptAir Celebrates 75th Anniversary (+ News) (by Horus May 12 2007 in Civil Aviation) EgyptAir would like to increase TIP flights from 9 to13x weekly flights this winter.

thats for sure, But that's life.

Well it's the way forward...
