Arrived to Alexandria Borg El Arab airport from Los Angeles through Jeddah and luggage didn't arrive on the same flight. I asked if luggage can be delivered to my hotel and I was told no. The reason is security. I went next day to pick up my luggage and go thro customs. One customs person asked what is in the luggage; I said personal items and gifts. I was told to put luggage through screening. The screening person told me to take them to be opened by another person. I took luggage and the other person asked me what is in the luggage; I said personal items and gifts. He said ok you can pass. As I passed through the gate, another person told me to go back and have the luggage opened. I told him the other man didn't want to open and search my luggage. He insisted that I go back. Then I was asked again what is in the luggage; I said you asked me this question 3 times. Why don't you open the luggage and get this over with. He insisted to hear the answer from me. I said personal items and gifts. Then he opened the luggage in a rude way and threw my passport on top of the luggage instead of handing it to me. Another person came and said the passport is the problem.
This airport customs personnel are so rude and discourteous. They treat travelers with no respect because they have no respect for themselves. I expressed my dismay about their treatment and one person said keep it to yourself.
Moreover, the road from the airport to the city is so dangerous and has no safety signs. literally, you can loose your life going to and from Borg El Arab airport. Try to avoid going through this airport if you are worried about your life.
