Pros: Crew was very pleasant and efficient.

Cons: Informed the day before via an email from the site that the flight was delayed. Arrived at airport on time, checked in. Once at the gate we all waited to board. Boarding time came and went with no information. Everyone waited. No information was announced and no one was at the gate. After waiting for over an hour with everyone in confusion, boarding was announced. No information, no acknowledgement.

RUN
Okay 4,0

Pros: Air Austral ok

Cons: When your company proposes flight which goes through Thailand, it should be clearly advised that there will be a visa that needs to be bought while going through the Thai immigrations, we spent around 14,000 Thai Bhats while incoming and outgoing. Very dictative country, I will never ever fly again through Thailand with Air Austral, I would prefer paying another Rs.10,000 to emirates and have a better service. The Hifly company that operated the flights from RUN to BKK and back, was a disaster, very uncomfortable and really bad service.

Cons: Air Madagascar is a disaster. Of the four flights I took with them during my trip to Madagascar, two flights were canceled and had to be rescheduled. All four flights were at least at hour late with no warning, and on one direct flight they neglected to put my bags on the plane. Most unrealiable airline I've experienced in all my travels.

Pros: I like the fact that the flight left the airport in TLE and landed in TNR

Cons: The cancelations, the general lack of information from any source within the airline and almost everything else about Air Madagascar except for the friendly flight crew and the benevolent employee who took pity on us and actually got us on the flight. We were scheduled to leave two days earlier so ALL of our international connections were missed. If you have any their choice of travel in Madagascar, use it instead.

Cons: Arrived 20 - 25 minutes late on connecting flight Air Austral from Johannesburg. But the real problem is transfer at St. Denis - worst ever encountered. There is only one security station in a cramped stuffy area ... staffed by 8 slow, useless and unfriendly people. The technology must be outdated, because although your cabin bag, laptop case etc. is scanned, before scanning every bottle (no matter how small ... even 50ml or 100ml), makeup etc. is manually searched for then taken by hand and scanned in a separate device. Also any duty-free in a sealed pouch is taken, opened, then re-packed in a new IDENTICAL pouch and sealed !!!aaarrrrggggh?? Do this x 100 passengers (all travelling to Port Louis from Johannesburg via Saint Denis) and your Air Austral scheduled 1 hour transfer time is a joke ... with this frustrating process they need 2.5 hours minimum. Coupled with Air Austral late arrival of 20 minutes departed about 80 minutes late. The joke of it is the plane from Saint Denis to Port Louis is the same plane as used for Johannesburg - Saint Denis leg ... so why disembark the 90% passengers going to Port Louis at all ... leave them on the plane and only disembark those few for Saint Denis.

The technology must be outdated, because although your cabin bag, laptop case etc. is scanned, before scanning every bottle (no matter how small ... even 50ml or 100ml), makeup etc. is manually searched for then taken by hand and scanned in a separate device. Also any duty-free in a sealed pouch is taken, opened, then re-packed in a new IDENTICAL pouch and sealed !!!aaarrrrggggh?? Do this x 100 passengers (all travelling to Port Louis from Johannesburg via Saint Denis) and your Air Austral scheduled 1 hour transfer time is a joke ... with this frustrating process they need 2.5 hours minimum. Coupled with Air Austral late arrival of 20 minutes departed about 80 minutes late. The joke of it is the plane from Saint Denis to Port Louis is the same plane as used for Johannesburg - Saint Denis leg ... so why disembark the 90% passengers going to Port Louis at all ... leave them on the plane and only disembark those few for Saint Denis.

Pros: Staff was nice. Worked to make sure we were seated in a way that helped us stay together. Plenty of space. Courteous staff.

Cons: Flight was delayed leaving Antananarivo. Flight arrived slightly late to Port Louis (Mauritius). Wanted to get food at airport in Reunion as we got to Reunion at 8:25 pm and had left home (to get to airport in Antananarivo at 2:30 pm, were only served a small snack on flight - it was only 1 hour long), but there was no ATM in the terminal and the only place serving food did not accept international credit cards.

Cons: Online check-in - boarding pass for 2nd leg Saint-Denis - Port Louis could be issued, but not for 1st leg ?? Boarding - confusing - boarding pass issued stated 14:45 as boarding time when this was in fact scheduled departure time. Plane eventually departed 20 mins late.

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.

Cons: The boarding was confusing, with some ground crew saying Gate 20 when actually it was 22; I could have missed my flight. The actual boarding announcement at the gate was after the announced boarding time was reached. The main board where all flights were announced did not have SA 190 announced AT ALL.

RUN
Okay 4,0

Pros: Air Austral ok

Cons: When your company proposes flight which goes through Thailand, it should be clearly advised that there will be a visa that needs to be bought while going through the Thai immigrations, we spent around 14,000 Thai Bhats while incoming and outgoing. Very dictative country, I will never ever fly again through Thailand with Air Austral, I would prefer paying another Rs.10,000 to emirates and have a better service. The Hifly company that operated the flights from RUN to BKK and back, was a disaster, very uncomfortable and really bad service.

There is only one security station in a cramped stuffy area ... staffed by 8 slow, useless and unfriendly people. The technology must be outdated, because although your cabin bag, laptop case etc. is scanned, before scanning every bottle (no matter how small ... even 50ml or 100ml), makeup etc. is manually searched for then taken by hand and scanned in a separate device.

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.

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

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.
