Seychelles with EY and Air Seychelles: Perfect, except for the delay in Abu Dhabi

Review of Redg about the flight Etihad Airways EY4118 between Mahe Is. and Frankfurt on 06/04/2014 in Economy
Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

Malé-Frankfurt flight via Abu Dhabi.

Malé-Abu Dhabi flight with Air Seychelles in economy class. A330-200, adequately comfortable seat, standard-size screen, better than average entertainment. Perfect flight and nice and attentive crew.

The only thing is that before the flight we had to wait at Male for the flight coming from Johannesburg to arrive….

A 25-minute delay and, in the end, a one-hour time difference on take-off, making the time in Abu Dhabi between the two flights of only one hour and forty minutes, which we thought had a risk of being tight. And it was: landing at 1:40 to take-off at what would theoretically be 2:15….

Afraid to miss our connection, we hurried to leave the plane and a lady was waiting with a “Frankfurt” sign…. The flight was ready to leave and we would have to take the next one…. We were scared of having to spend some time in the corridors of the airport, but, surprise, Etihad had everything planned: the tickets for the 8:55 flight had already been printed, a room at the Premium Inn hotel had already been booked, and we could go there by taxi. Great way to handle the delay! And so, we were able to sleep for three hours in a good bed, take a shower, and have breakfast before taking our flight.

The flight was perfect, with no turbulence, and we were able to enjoy Etihad’s super large screen.

The breakfast served was very good.
