Huge Delay in Paradise - Seychelles to Maldives on Air Seychelles

I traveled on Air Seychelles A320neo from Seychelles to Maldives (Mahe to Male). The flight connects 2 Indian Ocean paradise. Find out why such flight exists from the video.

The flight was flown by Captain Nicole Chang-Leng and F/O Russell Morel. Captain Nicole was the first Seychellois female captain and she is currently the chief pilot at Air Seychelles. We took off just before the sunrise and saw the sun rising over the horizon later in-flight. We didn’t fly over any land since we left the runway in Mahe until the runway threshold of Male Airport, Maldives. Captain Nicole shared some great details of the flight. I review the in-flight service of Air Seychelles as well as the seating in both Business and Economy Class of Air Seychelles A320neo.

Maldives Air Traffic Control put the flight on an hour holding over the Maldives due to traffic. This has resulted in some amazing scenery below the plane. Male Velana Int’l airport was extremely busy with a lot of long haul flights and seaplanes.

We spent almost 2 hours at the Maldives on the ground while waiting for ATC clearance and a tow truck to start pushing back. On the way back to Seychelles, the pilots shared very useful information on conducting such ETOPS flight over the Indian Ocean and the challenges of alternate destinations from Seychelles.

    Every airline should be allowed to the vaccine at boarding points:- International workers & students are waiting for 1+ year but still, virus exist. Airlines can do one thing that during check-in they can provide a Vaccination facility for people who are not yet vaccinated due to a shortage of vaccines in their area. Every airline can be given One-shot vaccine permission at their boarding points. This will make sure that people who are traveling are 100% vaccinated and this can at least help many people to ensure secure and safe traveling. This will help to increase the vaccination of many people who are frequent travelers from one country to other. This will help to reduce the virus spread. Many airlines are under heavy loans this will help to get back in their business. the employees of airlines are also under stress. This initiative will help everyone directly & indirectly.

    My favorite part of departure is hearing one of the pilots say "Positive Climb." I always notice when its omitted. Seems should be mandatory although not much one can do I would think if no positive climb it would be too late unless you had an infinite runway.
