| Male to Kooddoo. I was travelling by Maldivian in 2 sectors on the same day. But the airline does not provide a fly-through service. The staff at check in counter was able to give the seat I requested for. The flight was delayed but there was no announcement or indication by airline on the delays. Three other Maldivian flights were also delayed that were scheduled to depart almost the same time as my flight. They made an announcement for 2 of the flights and gave an estimated departure time for the other. Ground staff are relatively inexperienced and naive with no sense of accountability in attending to customer. The aircraft was clean and well maintained but extremely hot. The cabin crew gave a wet tissue. Seats were very packed with limited leg space. There was no inflight entertainment or catering. The cabin crew announced the restriction of any electronics or mobile phones and clearly mentioned that "the mobile phones must be swtiched off through out the flight". There was an inflight journal which I have read in my previous flights. For more than 1 hour I just sat up and did nothing, just waited for the aircraft to land. Seats were fixed upright and cannotbe reclined. Cabin crew served packet juice and water. No food, light meals or snacks such as sandwich, peanuts available even for purchase in the flight. Overhead speaker was not clear at all and didn't understand most of the announcements. The flight was very noisy and they offered ear plugs. Maldivian has a long way to go in meeting it's customer needs. Lack of competition is the the upside and downfall of this airline.
