Safe they are. Since MS joined Star Alliance, it improved massively. Fleet is now on average less than 10 years old (www.airfleets.net/ageflotte/Egyptair.htm). And CAI airport followed the same path. So don't expect a 5 stars airline, but fly with confidence on MS.

They're perfectly safe. I lived in Cairo for a while and used to fly back and forth to London with them quite often (they were usually a bit cheaper than BA) and I also took plenty of internal flights with them from Cairo to Sharm, Hurghada, Luxor and Aswan and back, all without any problems at all. You'll see the occasional passenger praying in their seat and from time to time passengers would applaud the captain on landing, but that was rare and a reflection of local custom rather than safety record.

We went to South africa with them and didn't have a problem but the entertainment is the drop down screens in the cabin and it's a dry airline so no wine with dinner.
