Goal: Fly Air Mauritius A359 Routes Consecutively [95%]

Hello IFC, it’s been more than a month that I have been flying for @DubaiVirtual as Emirates 898VA and yesterday during the event at EGLL, I decided to set up a goal: fly every Air Mauritius A359 routes.

Reasons behind doing that goal

First of all, I have a Mauritian nationality and spent all of my life in Mauritius up to now!
I love the Airbus A350-900 of Air Mauritius, it is just so wonderful and it is my flag carrier.
Before I joined Dubai Virtual Airline (DVA), I almost every time flown the A359 of Air Mauritius but then when I joined DVA, I mostly flown the Boeing 777-300ER of Emirates and fell in love with that aircraft too! lol…
Now, since DVA has codeshares with Air Mauritius, I decided to fly all Air Mauritius routes available (22 in total) from that codeshares.

Goal (95% completed)

So, the goal is to consecutively fly every routes of Air Mauritius available from DVA codeshares and the routes are listed just below.

@ECOFRIENDLY_TIME … don’t be sad… there are 17 more flights upcoming with 4 already scheduled!

We are at 13 hours to closure of the first poll and WSSS is winning over FACT and VIDP with an advantage of 19%! So, I decided to schedule my flights accordingly. (If ever there is a reversal of the trend at closure, I will have to reschedule the flights… lol)

I know pilots who will be happy to hear that WSSS is winning… lol
