Best way to get Seychelles from the US?

Hey,

What's the best (easiest?) way to get to SEZ from the West Coast of the US?

Thanks.

Easiest probably Emirates from LAX/SFO/SEA, single connectio in Dubai.

You could also do a one-stop with Turkish via IST from LAX.

Some of the European carriers operate to SEZ at least seasonally.

EK, QR, EY, ET offer 1-stop connections US to SEZ

Oops, TK may be less convenient than I first thought then...

ET, EY and QR don't offer one-stop connections from the west coast.

LAX -> FCO (AZ) -> SEZ (BV)

Via Asia:
LAX -> HKG (CX) -> DXB (CX or EK) -> SEZ (EK)
LAX -> NRT (AA or JL) -> DXB (EK) -> SEZ (EK)
LAX -> PEK (CA) -> DXB (CZ, CA, EK, or HU) -> SEZ (EK)

Blue Panorama (BV) suspends the flights to SEZ in September. Ever since Air Seychelles stopped all longhaul flights and Etihad took over the management, nonstop flights from Europe are very rare with only Condor 1 weekly left ex FRA. Most connections have to go via the gulf area now or less frequently via Africa (NBO/ADD/JNB).
