Hi all 🙂 Wondering if it is best to fly direct London - Mauritius with Air Mauritius or via Dubai with Emirates? How is the service on Air Mauritius? Thanks!

I prefer to go via Dubai. It give you the chance to stretch your legs. Gets you off your numb bum etc etc

I prefer air mauritius 🇲🇺 one straight flight and you are here

We went direct with Air Mauritius in October. Was ok going out and service was good but not so much coming home. We wasn’t very comfortable either way but being night flights probably didn’t help .When we go again will probably do the stop in Dubai.

We stopped in Dubai for a few days & it was lovely ! Then stopped on the way back for a change over! The way back was a long old journey !
I think BA also do a straight flight there x

We went BA straight Gatwick to Mauritius could deal with the faff of changing.

We did direct and will again nect year. People we met dudvthe stop over and found it more tiring and hassle.

Emirates were really good and stop over was short but gave you a break. It was also cheaper.

I would advise emirates. Better flight and service than air Mauritius.

I was dreading the 12 hour direct flight but the two night flights with air Mauritius was perfect for us, so relaxing, and two extra days in Mauritius 👌 A few we spoke to that changed found it stressful and tiring as their outbound flight from London was delayed. All ways are great if it all goes to plan 😂👍

We have done the trip via Dubai countless times and via Istanbul twice. This month we went direct with air Mauritius. Admittedly we are BC but it was v good! For first time I slept at least 6 hours straight! Just got fed up with nodding off then having to get off plane and sit around in a lounge so we will definitely do it again. Only complaint is entertainment system dreadful. On a plus it’s a night flight which is great

Direct flight from Gatwick! As it is a night flight, you can rest before arriving early the next morning! The new air Mauritius planes are quieter and more comfortable too! I fly with the airline every year from Newcastle via Paris and the service is always good!

Je préfère un vol direct. Le vol est déjà long alors ajouter des heures d’escale c’est juste impossible pour moi ! Jamais eu de souci avec air Mauritius
