Travelled with air Seychelles I was hoping to get a good service as the plane is small and it was a short trip. The airhostest was nice but some of them was moody. A groupe of seychellois kids was traveling with us oh boy were they loud and rude. Now i kinda understand why the airhostest had the attitude. My...

Air Seychelles has a history and habit of changing and cancelling flights. In fact, they delayed ours from 9:45 am to 21:45 pm. Ok, we where informed a day before, but we lost a day and who will pay for our late check out, lunch and dinner at Seychelles (at Mauritius we booked an all-inclusive resort). Then, I tried to...

Air Seychelles is a very good airlines to fly in if you're looking to go to Seychelles or Mauritius from India. Their cabin crew was very courteous and helpful. Their stock Indian food was quite good. Only downside is that when you fly from Seychelles to Mauritius, they may not have vegetarian food to serve on board. That was the...

First the positives. Very helpful and friendly staff who did their best under trying circumstances. Food was good quality. Staff at the head office in the Seychelles helpfully transacted my extra luggage payment prior to departure. The negatives. Our flight from Abu Dhabi was delayed by 4 hours. The cabin was cramped and definitely not the standard you would expect...

a good airline to travel with. however, i would advise you to check weight of luggage before check-in. i was under a kilo overweight and had to pay in excess of R1000 for extra weight. a sad end to a beautiful holiday. !!!

This quite a long flight but manageable because of the generous size of aircraft and the welcoming, hard-working cabin crew. The flight crew did their jobs well too....landing on target, on time and on wheels!

Typically good, no-frills airline....but cabin crew were very good. The aircraft was quite comfortable for its size, but I should have taken neck support for extra comfort. The food was average, but edible.

This was a small plane, with no food, inflight movie or toilets.....perhaps not surprisingly as the flight only took 15-20 minutes. The view from the widow made up for the lack of inflight entertainment and the pilots made a good team and were very knowledgeable. Take off and landing were spot on....smooth as landing on a sheet of glass.

As the only airline that fly’s to the Seychelles, hard not to recommend. They do need onboard duty free though. Very good service.
