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.

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 The technology must be outdated, because although your cabin bag, laptop case etc.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

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.

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.

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.

Pros: Got a notification well in advance that it would be significantly delayed.

Cons: IT WAS 13 HOURS LATE!!! Made me miss an important dinner, lost opportunity to sleep before an important day of conference meetings, and missed a breakfast meeting as well. Valuable time was lost due to this absurd delay. Seats were small. Won't rely on Air Mauritius again.

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.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
