We are getting married / honeymooning in Mauritius next September. We are flying with Air Mauritius and were thinking about upgrading to business class for either one way or possibly both. Although it's not massively expensive it is still a fair few quid extra was wondering whether it's worth the added expense. If anyone has been business class would like to hear what you reckon.
I am flying out to Mauritius 16th Dec (for 23 nights) from Heathrow with BA. I am flying in economy & have the opportunity to select my seat on the plane.
Any hints on good (and bad) seat numbers? Also what should I expect in the way of food & drink, entertainment etc?
Any help will be welcome.
I would be interested where you got the tickets for £250 as me, my husband and family are returning back to Mauritius to live. Yes don't mention Air France they don't tell you about strikes they just do it. We went with Air France/Air Mauritius and they were very helpful. Air Mauritius part of the flight was the best. Our lugage got held up for 3 days : at Paris because of a late flight from LHR. But Air Mauritius/Immigration came to the rescue telling us we could buy items of clothing and they would pay upto RS1600 each. The holiday was fine my husband didn't come out of the water till late even in Mauritius wintertime something you can't do really in the UK unless to are asking for trouble OH well. Looking forward to being with my family and catching up on the gossip and cuisine in Port Louis.
BA can be quite strict with the luggage weight allowance. If you are going on holiday and not bringing alot of weight then go for BA. However if you are going to see family in Mauritius and you are bringing everything but the kitchen sink then Air Mauritius is good except for the narrow seats.
I'm flying with AF too. They were the only airline with reasonable prices during the Easter holiday period. BA, AM, LTU and Condor were much more expensive. Another advantage is that they have scheduled flights daily, so one can add an additional weekend to the holidays by taking off on friday and returning on sunday.
