CRAZY: $600 Roundtrip Business Class Tickets From Cairo To New York

I’m not sure how useful this necessarily is, but it’s a damn good fare. Meridiana was recently rebranded as Air Italy, after Qatar Airways took over a 49% stake in the airline. The airline is getting an overhaul, and over the coming years will get 30 Boeing 787s, as Qatar Airways hopes to turn Air Italy into Italy’s national airline.

While Meridiana has flown from Naples and Palermo to New York for years (I even flew them last summer, and had a pleasant flight, despite them using an ancient 767 for the route), as of this spring the airline will be based out of Milan, and operate flights to New York and Miami.

At the moment they have some insane business class fares from Cairo to New York. Specifically, they have one-way business class fares of under $400, and roundtrip fares of $600. That’s crazy.
