I was told some weeks ago that the Isis had closed until business picked up. If true then I suppose its better than saying we are closed through lack of business. On the other side of the coin, their statement may encourage others to book thinking that the empty hotels are, in fact, getting filled.

What do they need to do both the Egyptair flight and the Thomson flight this week were both full. Yes more flights bigger planes will bring more people but price wise its not stopping all the people.

If its only business class available then it is stopping me, sadly.

These planes have most seats pre taken by tour operators if they return seats near the time they are then become available.
