We haven't booked it, and not because we have any doubts about traveling to Egypt (okay, maybe we worry about internet access), but because of the reputation of Aeroflot. Hell, the only other story we've ever done on them here at Jaunted involved their flight attendants filming themselves smoking cigarettes and marijuana in the galley, en route! They also still sport the hammer and sickle in their logo, so...yea.
Because we comparison shop, we checked the lowest airfare being offered by Aeroflot's other Skyteam partner airlines for a NY-Cairo flight, and it is $956. Still, taking the scary (and scary cheap) Aeroflot option makes you have a layover in Moscow for 10 hours. Ughdecisions. We just want to go somewhere and explore!
So help us outwould you book a long flight to an exotic destination on an airline with a bad reputation if the price was bargain-basement? Have you flown Aeroflot recently? What was it likewere the flight attendants buzzin? Let us know in the comments!
