Therefore Maldivian is controlling the price fare and they don't seems to give...

For context only, I’ve been to more than 60 countries and on seven continents. I have extensive travel experience in all regions of the world and Maldivian Airlines is by far the absolute worst. The most rude and unhelpful staff in the history of air travel, and probably the history of customer service. If their flights are delayed or cancelled...

It was only short domestic flight. The service staff was friendly, also the knowledge of English was quite bad, but they tried to help as they could. Check in and boarding were OK, the service was friendly also there. Of course on a short domestic flight, you can't expect the comfort of a long distance flight, but it was OK....

We enjoyed our flight from Male to Kooddoo Airport by Maladivian Airlines. This is one of the best service provider in the region with on time departure and good connections. The staff on ground and on air were equally good. Our overall experience was good.

Maldivian Airlines cancelled my flight to Male and put me on their next scheduled flight to Male meaning I missed my connecting flights with Qatar Airlines to Doha-Johannesburg-Durban and had to repurchase the entire leg! This despite informing Maldivian the times of my connecting international flight. I have since tried to recover costs of repurchasing return leg unsuccessfully although no...
