Pros: Food and service are above usual airline standard.

Cons: Both directions transit/transfer at Reunion/St. Denis was a joke. This is more the fault of the airport than Air Austral. The security facilities are inadequate and slow, staff unfriendly ... consequently the transfer can never be made in time and departure is delayed. After all of that you get back on same aircraft !!! why not leave passengers flying onwards to Johannesburg (Mauritius) on the plane ... as I have experienced with many other airlines.

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.

Okay 4,0

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 The technology must be outdated, because although your cabin bag, laptop case etc.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.

Okay 4,3

Pros: Plenty leg room space.

Cons: Interesting to see that they use the older plains to routes to "not so developed" countries, where they seem to account China. On other routes, the airline seems to be using much better plains with better overall service. I will surely avoid use this airline on flights from / to China.

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.

Okay 5,6

Cons: We continued our journey from Mauritius to Reunion, and given the quite small plane, Air Mauritius deliberately left one of our suitcases (and a few others of other passengers) behind. This was then only brought to our hotel the next day at noon (36 h late). Very annoying, as they didn't tell us beforehand (then, at least we could have packed some essentials in our hand luggage).

Pros: Seat was very comfortable

Cons: Inflight entertainment could be much better. Not much choice of films, particularly latest ones. Headsets very uncomfortable and sound quality poor.

Okay 5,2

Cons: General lack of concern for passengers. The kids in the seats next to me had screens that weren’t working and they wouldn’t even try to fix them. despite the fact that the water was there, when I declined the meal but asked for something to drink they refused until later.

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: 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: Crew and service were top rate.

Cons: Flight delayed over an hour. There was little information passed along within the airport. Boarding/manifest at the gate was a madhouse with no order or flight class boarding. This was surpassed at Reunion by the mobs crowding to get their visas.

Mediocre 3,2

Pros: Lounges are good

Cons: We sure could do better refraining from serving food that has been opened, tasted, and rejected by another customer. Seat 34 A and B rejected their special ordered food for the wrong item. I watched them taste. Crew, one named Paul, took it back, simply put the foil back, and served to others.

Excellent 9,0

Pros: I enjoyed the entertainment meaning movie selection and staff was real friendly. Plus flights were on time.

Cons: The seat need more cushion especially for long flights and more leg room. Very uncomfortable after awhile of prolonged sitting.

Good 6,6

Pros: Food and service are above usual airline standard.

Cons: Both directions transit/transfer at Reunion/St. Denis was a joke. This is more the fault of the airport than Air Austral. The security facilities are inadequate and slow, staff unfriendly ... consequently the transfer can never be made in time and departure is delayed. After all of that you get back on same aircraft !!! why not leave passengers flying onwards to Johannesburg (Mauritius) on the plane ... as I have experienced with many other airlines.

Cons: To learn that the flight was over 3 hours later was a problem for different reasons : - what to do in a airport during 3 hours ? - we arrived in St Denis at 11:10 pm, + luggage time so nobody could come to pick us

Good 7,6

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: Seating is quite cramped, I am not a tall person but couoldn't get comfort with the space between seats. Anyway, the crew requested passengers to straigthen up their seat during meal-time which was a bit of relief. Breakfast was mediocre - one bread with hot drink after 6 hours inflight. Crew provided excellent service though through offering additional drinks.

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.
