Just read this article on the BBC

It relates to the current situation in Luxor, and the hotel occupancy being at 4% and business being very bad.

I also emailed the Foreign Office today regarding the lifting of the current travel ban, this was their response below;

Thank you for your email.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to say when or how our advice will change.

At present, the FCO advise against all travel to the Governorate of North Sinai and against all but essential travel to Egypt except for the resorts on the Red Sea in South Sinai and those resorts on the Egyptian mainland in Red Sea Governorate. The Red Sea resorts are considered geographically separate from the protests and unrest and are continuing to operate as normal. The areas to which we advise against travel or all but essential travel are shown clearly on our travel advice page:
