Has anyone flown with Air Mauritius. What did you think of service etc... and what aircraft type was it.

Did the aircraft have PTV's

I flew Air Mauritius about 2 years ago on the Bombay - Mauritius route.
The outbound flight was a code share with Air India while the return was on a Air Mauritius plane.
The service was good, nothing special. No PTVs back then. I'm not sure if they have added them recently.

Flew them many times when I was in South Africa and had an office in Port Louis. First flew on the B747SPs, which were effectively wet leased from SAA; and subsequently on the A340s. Service isn't bad - but it's not Singapore Airlines, let's put it that way!

They are getting some A320 series aircraft for regional operations shortly; and also have a couple of ATRs for inter-island hops.

Only done one return trip with them, ex MAN.

Out on a B762 in pitch and width no better than some charter carriers.

Back on a 340 in Biz, much better....don't get the middle seat though !
So I drive a 4x4. So what?! Tax the a$$ off me for it...oh, you already have... :-(

Hmm, Ceilidh. You had an office in Port Louis, did you. Under what company name was that one then?
