EgyptAir to Abu Simbel

My husband and I are taking the Abu Simbel excursion on our tour of Egypt in November. After booking the flight, our travel agent told us we will not find out if we make the flight until we get to Aswan as EgyptAir is notorious for overbooking. Has anyone had this problem? Have you been bumped? Apparently we have the option to take the bus if we're bumped. What's the bus like? How long does it take? Many thanks!

Part of our group went to Abu Simbel on the bus the first time I was there. They were supposed to fly but there was a bad sand storm. I didn't go but I believe it was a four hour trip there and four hours back. You have to go in the police convoy.

Yes, a year ago April our small tour group of 8 was delayed for hours for our flight. No problem returning.

Our flight was overbooked a few years ago. They told the flight attendants to stand during take off and landing and gave us their seats.

No kidding, they really did.
