We recently flew with Air Seychelles from Mahe to Praslin in the morning and discovered that they had left all the passengers' luggage behind as there wasn't any room for it. We finally got our luggage at 5pm that evening - we had no washthings/clothes to change into so that we effectively lost a day of our 6 day holiday....

Insanely expensive, slow service, impolite ground crew, literally the worst food I've ever had on a plane (which is saying something after 150-odd flights), and corked wine. And they obviously don't clean their bathrooms. The only good thing is that their flights are so empty you can move to an exit row seat without paying extra. If Seychelles' government hadn't...

This was my first flight through this Airline via Mahe for my onward journey to Johannesburg. We returned with the same pair of flights. i.e. Johannesburg to Mahe to Mumbai All the flights were on time. Food was OK. Inflight entertainment was limited.

The worse service you will ever get is at the domestic terminal on Mahe. Not friendly, no body at the checking counter. Bad bad experience. So sad for Air Seychelles domestic Mahe. Wish that the manager can take up this matter seriously. Very very very very bad. If I could put a minus 0 I would. Domestic Praslin very good.

While flying from Mauritius to Mumbai via Mahe, we found that HM260 from Mahe to Mumbai was cancelled on 01.11.18. The Airline decided to put us up at Mahe & also promised to take care of our onward domestic flight bookings from Mumbai. Details of our bookings were handed over & we were sitting thus pretty, waiting for them to...

I'm standing in the Abu Dhabi airport at 3:04 AM having been told I couldn't get on my flight to London because they rescheduled my flight to the next day because in their opinion I would have not been able to make my connection to London. I had no clue it happened until I got to the gate and they...

Travelling with my fiance, on our way back to Abu Dhabi from Seychelles, the check-in counter gave us a separate seat, we just realized it when we were already onboard. We requested the flight attendant if possible we can be seated together and he got us a better seat with extra leg room. It was truly an enjoyable flight having...

Absolutely disgusting. Horrific cabin crew. Rude. Uncouth. And far far away from having any desire to please the consumer! In fact forget pleasing, they don't give a sh*t about you. I was travelling with an injury in my leg and had hence got myself a seat at row 6 which has the maximum leg space in economy class. The seat...
