    Egypt Denies EasyJet Access to Cairo:(

    LONDON—Egyptian authorities are refusing to award low-cost carrier easyJet PLC takeoff and landing slots at Cairo airport unless it overhauls its no-frills approach and offers other services, according to people familiar with the matter.

    "Technically, we can fly" to Cairo, EasyJet Chief Executive Carolyn McCall said. But she added the airline still hasn't been given clearance by Egypt's aviation authorities. "We're still talking to authorities on how that will work," Ms. McCall said.

    Gee, EasyJet can come if they impose additional costs on themselves, we wouldn't want, you know, consumers to benefit but to also have competition for EgyptAir..
