Good 7.3

Pros: crew was good. Seat was good but it was a business class seat in a 787-9; so it should be good.

Cons: wines were mediocre which was balanced out by the good quality of the food. Brussels to Abu Dabhi boarding was a little chaotic with coach and front cabin passesgers packed in a single bus. Noticed many older passengers standing for the longish bus ride.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: It landed safely

Cons: Delayed 3hrs with no information just apologies. Toilets onboard not clean and leaking. Several trays broken. Coffe/Tea served by pouring over customers rather than tray with cup. Safety information only shown when landing. Staff bumped isle passengers several times (me 4 times) with no apology. Chaos in serving dinner as special meals and vegetarian meals sent to wrong seats.

Excellent 10.0

Cons: The quality of the entertainment hardware system is rather old and out dated as opposed to most other long haul airlines I’ve sat on which I really think Air Mauritius should consider upgrading. It’s the only airline that I don’t even bother using their entertainment system at all.

Good 7.6

Pros: The Air Mauritius plane was actually quite comfortable.

Cons: The entertainment on the flight operated by Air Mauritius was not great. It was still old-fashioned and not interactive. The breakfast on Air Mauritius was not healthy at all and was extremely carby and sugary. It could do with some additional protein and less sugar. The vegetarian dinner could also have done with some additional protein.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in INR.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
