One of the best flights I've ever been on. The crew was very friendly and kind. Always with an authentic smile on the face. Maybe the Aur Seychelles is not the most luxury airline in the world, but this flight was fun and warm-hearted. And for me, that is worth more.

I had pre-booked seats at £30 per seat for each of 3 legs on a trip to Praslin in the Seychelles with Air Seychelles. The outward journey was fine and myself and my travelling partner got the seats we had paid for. However, on the last leg of the return flight, the longest leg, we were given seats apart and...

I realize that smaller airlines often purchase used planes but I would rather not fly on them. Bring your laptop as the TV service with complimentary ear buds does not work well. Don’t board hungry as it takes a very long time for flight attendants to supply a beverage or a meal and then a very long time to clear...

This flight lived up to Air Seychelles reputation for tardiness! Late arriving (45 minutes) and even later leaving (55 minutes). No realistic explanation! The boarding experience (Air Seychelles ground handling agent I suppose) was disorganised. Called to board, then waited another 15 minutes, all hanging around. Then down the corridor, only to be held up for another period for some...

Flew to Mumbai in December and back in January with them. We paid for seat selection in September, yet the airline moved my seat to favour passengers that did not pay for seat selection. This I find out on boarding only. I think that is utterly unprofessional and unacceptable. The food is average. And be warned you will be given...

We flew from Praslin to Mahe and everything went smooth. The departure was on schedule and the flight took only 15 min and the service was good. Highly recommended. And the price was very good as well.

Take-off and landing were smooth and hence a comfortable flight from Seychelles to Abu Dhabi. In-flight entertainment was ok with updates on new movies to watch. In-flight service was ok for the exception of tea/coffee time whereby the cabin crew did not prompt certain passengers if they needed it or not and hence I missed the tea/coffee trolley.

Overall flight was divided in two parts one from Mumbai to Mahe then from Mahe to Johannesburg and same way return. In economy class they are providing good leg space and loaded good audiovisual programs, so the time passed quickly. Food given for vegetarians is ok but there is always chance to improve. Staff on flight was quite cooperative, hence...

This is the only Direct flight from Mumbai to Mahe, hence this was the choice. After boarding the flight got delayed for more than one hour due to technical snag. The ground staff was trying to resolve the issue and we were bored. Otherwise this is an average service. Food and IFE was okay.
