“Opt for the exit row if possible”
Review of Nile Air


Reviewed 31 October 2018

We took a short flight from Cairo to Sharm el Sheikh. The airline was efficient and true to schedule. My boyfriend is 6'5", and the regular seats offer far less legroom than that on larger aircrafts. On our return flight, we opted for the exit row, which offered ample leg room.

Took a 90 minute flight from Aswan to Cairo. Plane was on time. Service was fine. They served a small meal despite the shortness of the flight. Only complaint is the lack of legroom. Seats were very tightly packed in.

Nileair may be cheaper but if there isna problem, they take no responsability and do nothing to help you.
They didn't forward my luggagr between 2 flights, would not deliver to my hotel and I had to pay 70$ and take a 3 hour trip to get my luggage back. All they could say was: we apologize for the inconvenience. I called evey number I could, emailed and sent messages on facebook. They never returned my calls and would only reply to me on facebook once every hour.
They ruined my last 2 days of vacation.

You get a pretty good flight for low cost. Also luggage allowance is up to 2 bags. In flight service is very good and everyone was courteous.
