Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
Fancy a trip to the pyramids this summer? The weather may not be for the faint of heart — temperatures will climb to the low hundreds —but as far as fares go, this one’s hard to beat. Our friends at Hitlist found flights from New York to Cairo for as little as $512 round-trip in early June.
This deal has you flying Star Alliance, with one connection in each direction. You might have noticed a slightly lower fare (sans connections) from New York to Cairo on EgyptAir last week, but this current deal presents more opportunities for earning, not to mention a more diverse selection of airlines (Lufthansa and Swiss, in the case of this particular booking). Booked through United, for example, this trip could earn you 8,000 PQMs (you'll earn for the United flights, but not those on Lufthansa or Swiss as the "K" fare class is ineligible).
