Seychelles and S Africa from £1169 in business class
Today’s fare may be somewhat niche as it is from Amsterdam to the Seychelles via Nairobi on Kenya Airways. However, you can also travel on KLM for the Amsterdam to Nairobi part.
Kenya Airways have modern aircraft with the B787 on long haul sectors and are part of Skyteam so you could credit to Air France or KLM. This could be a useful source of miles if you plane to fly on Virgin as it is expected that you will be able to use KLM miles on Virgin and vice versa in the near future. Kenya Airways have a 2-2-2 layout but the seats are flatbeds.
