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.

Landed in Mahé from London and needed to get to Praslin Island, and Air Seychelles operates frequent flights in little Twin Otter propeller aircraft. Domestic terminal is a short walk from international arrivals. Check-in painless (2.5 hours before flight) and although technically, we were allowed only 2 bags, the cabin is small so a cabin bag had to be checked...

The plane covering the distance between the isles of Mahé and Praslin is a propeller light aircraft. The height inside the aircraft is rather reduced to such an extent that upon entering it one has to bend his back considerably in order not to hit the ceiling, but that’s not disturbing at all for once seated the comfort is similar...

Flying with Air Seychelles was a very pleasant experience. The plane was clean and service onboard was friendly and good. The flight is direct. The only down side is the flight lands late in Mahe and by the time you have landed and got to your hotel it is too late to get dinner as most of the restuarants are...

We flew from Mumbai to Mauritius by Air Seychelles. Though the flight takes via Seychelles, in flight entertainment and good staff did help in preventing it to be a tiring or boring trip. The airport itself is very small

To Summarise my journey, poor customer service, poor inflight service, lazy staff, horrible systems. Overall just avoid the airline if you are getting a better option. They delayed my luggage in Johanesberg and still did not send it to Cape town. After follow-up they had sent it. Web check in is allowed just 24 hours prior but meals you have...
