Business class air for Jordan and Egypt: Petra to the Pyramids
Hi all. Looking for thoughts on best routes/business class to fly to Amman, Jordan and home from Cairo. We are coming from the DC region and going in February 2024, so we can now book flights. We are trying to avoid Luftansa if possible (they have no US presence for phone service, and work only through a flight consolidator leading to potentially huge problems). We would like to know what airlines and routes people have been happy with. It seems the only direct flights back from Cairo are on Egypt air. Qatar charges extra for seat selection ( even for business class) and it does not come with lounge access. Royal Jordanian looks pretty good but we would have to change planes in Chicago in February which seems like a crap shoot to us.
Any thoughts from those who have done this trip would be much appreciated.
