Emirates to put second A380 on Mauritius route

Just came across this news from Travelmole and thought I would post it for anyone that might be interested.

" Emirates will serve Mauritius with a double daily A380 service from December 1 this year.'¨

This second A380, which will operate as flight EK 703/704, replaces the existing Boeing 777 operation and increases Emirates' capacity on the route by 19% - or an extra 165 passengers each day.

The first daily A380 service into Mauritius was launched in December 2013.

Services between Dubai and Mauritius are operated in codeshare with Emirates' long-time partner Air Mauritius.

The two airlines are now in discussions to increase the number of destinations covered by the codeshare agreement."

OMG I hate Y class in the A380 and purposely book the 777 - so my December return is the A380.

Not happy.

That's my prebooked seats messed up (they were 2s at the back)

Thanks Angie!

Thanks Angie - really appreciate the heads up.

EK aren't renowned for making pax aware of changes so doubt they will announce it.

Will keep eye on MMB from now on and grab decent (ish) seats if possible as soon as it changes.

Wow that was quick - they changed the seat map today from the 777 to the A380 - no announcement which is exactly what I thought would happen.

So if anyone has EK seats prebooked MRU-DXB from December check MMB now and change your seat!
