Russia deems Egyptian airport security measures unsatisfactory, postpones flight revival

So we guess Svetlana’s BFFs still aren’t coming for a beach holiday: Russia has again deemed our airport security unsatisfactory, says Svetlana Sergeeva, an adviser to the head of Russia’s Federal Agency for Tourism (Rostourism), according to Sputnik. The results of Russia’s most recent airport security inspection revealed that “the Egyptian side has not yet resolved all issues related to aviation security,” she said, without further clarification. Sergeeva added that “the recent attack on tourists on the beach in Hurghada” is a cause of great concern.

So we’re somehow able to get off the US in-flight laptop-ban list, but Russia’s security demands elude us?
