Miami: €1,291 Air Canada Business Class from Cairo

Air Canada Boeing 787-9 Business Class Sitz Hinten

Star Alliance member Air Canada (with a little assist by Lufthansa) offers surprisingly cheap business class tickets from Nothern Africa to Miami, Florida. With a stop in Montreal on the outbound and two stops in Montreal and Frankfurt on the inbound, you can get tickets for as little as €1,290 (~EGP 67,341). Both transatlantic flights offer lie-flat-seats in an Air Canada Boeing 787-9. Sadly, the last leg between Frankfurt and Cairo is a Lufthansa economy class flight.

Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates for less than €1,400 for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Air Canada with your selected flight dates.


Both long-haul flights are Air Canada Boeing 787-9 services, with lie-flat-seats in a 1-2-1 seating pattern. An Airbus A220 operates flights between Montreal and Miami (Domestic First with 2-2 recliners). On your way back to Cairo, the Canadian airline only takes you to Frankfurt or Munich. Lufthansa will operate the final leg to Cairo in economy class. The flight takes about 4 hours in an Airbus A320 family plane with 3-3 seating.

Information & Tips for USA

The USA offers many sights, natural wonders and cultural significance. Thanks to numerous airlines offering flights across the Atlantic, it is always pretty inexpensive to get there. Alternatively, you can also cross the Atlantic by boat.

Immigration, ESTA & Visa Requirements

The USA has one of the strictest entry regulations in the world. Most EU citizens, among others, are lucky to be able to participate in the so-called Visa Waiver Program. If you get an electronic entry permit (ESTA)  for approximately €20, you don’t need a visa for entry.

The Best Time to Visit

Due to its sheer size, the perfect time to visit the USA varies greatly from region to region. In winter, Florida is very popular due to the mild temperatures. In the summer the West and East Coasts are flooded by tourists which drives up the prices for hotels and flights and during the Indian Summer in late autumn New England is a very popular destination. The hurricane season between July and September can be dangerous in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. Florida and the southern states are regularly struck by these tropical storms. Blizzards occur from the East Coast to the Midwest during the winter months and regularly put air traffic and public life on hold.

The US dollar is widely used throughout the world and accepted as a currency in most tourist hotspots worldwide. That being said, carrying cash isn’t necessary in the US, all you need is a credit card! These are very common in the USA and are accepted pretty much everywhere without any issues. If you already have a credit card in your wallet, you should make sure that it does not charge a foreign currency fee if possible. Carrying a few dollars in cash doesn’t hurt though. You might need cash e.g. for the bus ticket if you want to buy it directly from the driver. Most of the time you even have to give exact change.
