(Cheap) Air between Cairo and Istanbul?

Has anyone found anything? I'm looking at $444 pp ONE-WAY which is kind of a deal-breaker.

We're looking to go in May, 08.

Turkish Air has a o/w flight from Cairo to Istanbul for 261 Euros. Royal Jordan Airlines also flies that route and I think it is cheaper--but stops in Amman. I'm looking at using FF miles to fly to Istanbul and buying a ticket onward to Cairo for next year.

Jane,
You might want to check out Egyptair - it's a non-stop leaving Cairo at 12:10 and arriving Istanbul 2:10 PM.

I can't tell you the price, as it's embedded in my whole trip - including the DFW to Cairo and Prague to DFW plus 2 additional one-way flights. ($1558.36 for total - which I'm trying to beat)

Good luck.

Hello,
I'm still hunting for that elusive affordable one-way ticket from Cairo to Istanbul.

So I'm hoping for some new readers to this thread and hopefully a break-through.

Turkish air is coming in at $943.85 for 2 people, and we can't do that.

But we really really want to come to Cairo.

Help?

Round trip tickets are running in the $700/range.

Not unusual for a one-way ticket to cost more than half round trip.
