Cairo Airport has been heavily renovated since last I was here, but it's still a major hassle. Alhamdolillah, we did not experience any significant delays; we spent about 4 hours there in total. The flight from Vienna to Cairo crossed over some beautiful mountain scenery, and the food on the flight was excellent. Cairo Airport still had the same "we-keep-your-passport" policy for all those hours, people were impolite, and we couldn't complete a phone call. Allah is with the patient. I lost 20$ Canadian on those smelly Egyptian pounds.
