You may not be familiar with French airline Air Austral, but after flying economy return from Sydney to Mauritius I am the airlines newest fan.
We were welcomed onboard with a wet towelette and as soon as we were in the air lunch was served (as you can see below it was delicious)!
Air Austral have very comfortable leather seats and ingenuous mood lighting which has defiantly assisted in reducing the symptoms of jet-lag (after a 12 hour flight which landed at 6am this morning I am in the office), the lighting is adjusted from bright to dark colours to coincide with the different phases of your flight, making it much more comfortable to sleep and adjust to new time zones.
The service through-out the flight was fantastic, flight attendants walked the aisles offering water and refreshments on regular intervals and were overall very helpful.
We flew into Reunion and took a transfer flight to Mauritius which took 35 minutes.
Reunion is an excellent stopover option for those traveling to France, enjoy spending a few days exploring the Island or relaxing on the beach. Perfection.
Air Austral fly from Sydney to Reunion, Mauritius, Seychelles, Mayotte and several destinations in France.
