Anonymous asked 4 months ago

Good evening
We are flying from Gatwick (UK ) to Mauritius tomorrow, with Air Mauritius. It’s our first long haul flight, we don’t know exactly if we need to check in online or we can do it at the airport. We are confused about the seats as well. Do we need to buy them? Or they will allocate them automatically?
Thank you in advance 🫶🏼

You should be able to check in online and seats will be allocated or you can do it at the airport

We had checked in on line but then had to queue again at Gatwick to check in again. I did actually pay to choose our seats but I think you also have the option to just be allocated at check in so I think you can just wait to check in at Gatwick. Safe travels

Top tip. Don’t drink alcohol on the flight as it disturbs your sleep. Take a piriton or phenegan after you’ve eaten onboard, then should sleep for a few hours.

Check in now and select your free seat, some are pay extra like extra legroom.
I always try and get over the wing then you don’t get engine noise.
There should be a 13amp plug socket to plug in a laptop or other equipment to maintain power, under the seat.
The headphone socket is the 2 mono plug type, so take an adapter.
I always get a special meal as they are served first and you get first dibs on the loo after the cardboard food takes hold.
One annoying problem I found is the call button is next to the light button on the overhead panel and its easy get them mixed up.

Online check in opens 24 hours before the flight. If you don’t like the seats allocated you ‘may’ be able to change them

I personally think that check in online before is better. Just avoids the hassle to do it at the airport.

I did get free seats to get there but returning I chose to pay as we were a big family and wanted to be seated near.

I also normally request for special meal (usually Asian vegetarian – normally get biryani or paneer). You get served one of the first people which is nice. Sometimes they run out of food choices so you may be left with whatever they have so I think its best to avoid by selecting meals from before.

My flight to Mauritius was incredibly warm but the weather here was cold so I wore something I could comfortably change out of.

The flight itself with AM was fairly comfortable.

We flew out on Wednesday, we checked in online 30 hours before take off. Easy! We had already bought seats, not that expensive, because we wanted the two seats on the A330-900 neo.
On boarding we found they had changed the aircraft to an A350 but they still gave us our two seats, leaving the third one empty! Result! I am 6ft and the leg room was great, no problem. The food was also very tasty which was a nice surprise. Drinks served with the meal and a top up after. We always have a whisky nightcap and a short walk down to the galley and that was sorted.
All in all a very good flight. Would we fly with them again? Oh yes!

    Mauritius is believed to be the only known habitat of the now extinct flightless Dodo bird. The bird, once present in huge numbers on the island, was flightless owing to a shortage of predators and thus remained safe on the ground. The arrival of humans in the form of sailors saw vast numbers of dodos being killed for their meat. With humans came rodents and primates who destroyed and consumed the dodo's eggs. The entire dodo population was wiped out within a century.
