Having recently completed an award booking for two in business to the Seychelles, I'd characterize the availability of business-class inventory between CDG and SEZ on the AF-coded, HM-operated flights as surprisingly decent (certainly not "exceptional," except perhaps by DL's atrocious standards), but the matching transatlantic inventory (especially on DL metal) as lousy. But trying to find a viable itinerary on without having first done your homework, using a tool like KVS, and then running a multi-city search with available segments already known, is an exercise in madness. And don't get me started about calling DL for help, with the draconian limitations on the number of dates that its agents will sweep before another phone call is required coupled with a widespread belief of said agents (at least those who serviced me, anyway)that CDG-SEZ and vice-versa isn't even bookable because the metal is HM's.

For those who want to go to the Seychelles on DL and don't want to spend all their time tearing out their hair, I cannot recommend a subscription to KVS strongly enough.
