I believe they had flights from Scandanavia to Hurghada but don't know how many, if any, passengers are stranded here.

Not many I suspect, with a global passenger list of less than 5000.

Singapore Airlines are far from the wall, but no longer fly to Egypt, at least from Australia, nor do Qatar Air, leaving only 2 carriers with direct flights, as far as I know.

I have a pal Stuart & his missis from my canal days, who after 17 yrs working for B.W.B. is now on a 'slow cruise to China.
It's a container ship he posts regular bulletins on FB, they were in Suez last week
Their accomodation is stateroom size, plus there is a huge-safe room if they get attacked by pirates...... 8)
