Hilton Honors has launched bonus miles offer for Sri Lankan FlySmiles member stays between march 15 – June 30, 2017.
FlySmiles members can earn triple miles for stays in Asia-Pacific and double for stays worldwide.
Sebastian wrote last week (access here) about the temporarily delays at the Colombo international airport in Sri Lanka due to runway construction. Passengers are advised to arrive super early to make their flights.
A LoyaltyLobby reader left a comment on that piece about his experience at the airport the other day. Seems that it is as chaotic as it has always been.
Urgent renovation works have just begun at Sri Lanka’s Colombo International Airport and are expected to cause havoc over the upcoming months at the already quite chaotic facility.
The centerpiece of the renovation will be the new runway of the airport which will limit traffic and cause congestion with check-in for home carrier Sri Lankan now closing 1.5 hours prior to departure.
SriLankan flight UL554 from Frankfurt to Colombo was delayed by 15 hours on Friday. The flight was scheduled to leave at 3:20PM on Friday and ended up leaving at 6:20AM on Saturday.
The reason for the delay was the drunkenness of the captain that was noticed by other crew members and alerted authorities.
A LoyaltyLobby reader sent me an email regarding flight cancellation issue that he is having with SriLankan airlines that decided to end service to Rome from Colombo.
I have just received an email from Sri Lankan Airlines (access web-version here) about changes to Lounge Access effective immediately at Sri Lanka’s Colombo Airport.
Effective July 1st 2015 (so already in effect) the frequent fliers of Sri Lankan Airlines own program FlySmiles as well as oneWorld Sapphire & Emerald (!!) Members will from now on only have access to a secondary lounge.
SriLankan Airlines has been the full member of the Oneworld alliance and all the airlines should soon update their websites with the mileage earning info for flights operated and marketed by UL (SriLankan’s IATA code).
American Airlines published the following earning chart on its website yesterday that you can access here.
Srilankan Airlines will become Oneworld Alliance member on May 1, 2014, and you can start earning and redeeming miles on their metal flights from that date.
Japan Airlines has now published on its website the earning chart for Mileage Bank members when flying on SriLankan Airlines flights and you can expect other Oneworld Alliance airlines follow shortly.
