Our Belavia flight was significantly delayed because of "weather conditions at the destination airport". Well, I checked arrivals in the destination airport and figured that there were at least 5 other planes, Aeroflot, AlItalia, KLM, and others, landing at the same time and nobody was going to be delayed.

45 minutes late on a 25 minute flight, no reason given at one point flight info disappeared off the board at departure gate then started boarding after a single announcement in Belorussian. Long time since I have been on a plane with steps in the door, real old school

Painless checkin - no delay - boarding by bus - 737-500 airplane (a bit old) - even though it was a short flight food was served - on time arrival - deplaning by bus.

the whole time we were on the plane flying from Hurgada to Minsk (almost five hours) the all passenger's backrests were not leaned back. That was very tiring.

Good Belarus Airline using modern Boing airplanes. We flew to Minsk and return. Departures and arrivals on time. Short flying time. Around 1 hour. In flight service ordinary for such short flying time. Coffee, tea, juices and sandwiches. Cabin attendant spoke good English. She was helpful and service minded.
