Airline Review – With Condor in the Business Class to the Seychelles
Airline Reviews are one of your most popular blog posts on my blog. Hence, today I wanna introduce my flight with Condor to the Seychelles to you guys.
After all the trouble the past weeks with missed connecting flights etc. I was looking for a direct flight to the Seychelles. From Germany there is only one Airline that flies directly to the Seychelles: Condor. Because I just had a wonderful flight with Condor to Las Vegas (read my Airline Review in the Premium Economy Class here) my decision was set: I would fly with Condor to the Seychelles. The flight is always from Frankfurt and only takes about 9 hours to Mahé. Because my parents live in Frankfurt it was a great chance to visit them. Besides that the time difference between Seychelles and Germany is only two hours. This has the big advantage of not having a jetlag 😀
A highlight for me was an upgrade in business class. I’ve only flown a few times with Lufthansa in business class but never with another airline. Especially on long-distance flights this is really comfortable and I was most excited for the comfortable sleeping area and the food on board 🙂
Therefore, I also filmed an Onboard Food Diary for you guys:
All business class guests are being served some champagne even before take-off. This calmed the nerves of one or the other because it was raining like crazy that day and there was a big storm in Germany 😛 They also let you have a look at the menu beforehand 🙂
Meal 1 – Dinner
For dinner shortly after take-off we were given three different courses which is the advantage in business class. I was most impressed by the starter platter which consisted of smoked salmon, a pretzel roll, a mixed salad etc.
The signature of Condor is this sweet salt pepper mill that I’ve already recognized on my premium economy flight to Las Vegas 😀
As a main course I went for the asparagus with veal fillet and sauce bérnaise. Like the starter this was served in a real dish. Everything tasted excellent!
For dessert you could again choose among various dishes. I chose the sweet dessert consisting of a passionfruit champagne tartlet and peach sauce. So yummy!
Meal 2 – Breakfast
Shortly before arrival we received a light breakfast consisting of birchermuesli, fresh rolls and croissants, a fruit platter and an omelette if desired. Also the breakfast was light and delicious!
There were also many extras on our flight such as:
- An ammenity kit including socks, toothbrush, toothpaste, ear plugs etc.
- Handlotion at the restroom
- Watterbottle for every guest
- A plug at your seat
- Free magazines and newspaper of your choice
- An easy to use remote control
- A comfy pillow and big planket
- Nice headphones
… and much more 🙂
The entertainment system of Condor in business class is also excellent! There were many series and movies available in different languages. You could then watch them on a big screen. I went for one of my absolute favorite series Mad Men and watched a few episodes of it during flight. Besides that you can sleep really well in business class so I took full advantage of it after Mad Men 😀
Again I’ve recognized the amazing service of the Condor employees that I can only praise once again 🙂
After about 9 hours flight time I landed fresh and relaxed in Mahé. Overall I was very happy with the entire flight. Hence, my Rating for the business class of Condor is the following:
5 is the highest rating, 1 the lowest
Overall-Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ = 5 Stars
I can definitely recommend Condor especially the flight in business class. Even though I’m a very economical person I believe it is really worth the investment. Thus, the vacation already begins in the airplane and beforehand you are really excited for your flight. If you are not willing to spend the money for a business class ticket definitely consider spending an extra for the premium economy class 🙂 Although I must admit that the business class is unbeatable 😉
Have you ever flown with Condor? And if so: How did you like it?
