Sri Lankan Airlines - business class or economy class?

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to Sri Lanka. We will fly to Colombo from Bangkok, which is listed as a less than four-hour flight. Normally we'd buy coach for flight of this length, but have been considering business class on Sri Lankan Airlines since the price is not too, too high. Thai also flies this route, but the flight times do not work with our itinerary.

We assume the primary benefits of buying business class would be extra luggage allowance and lounge access (since what we read online indicates that many of Sri Lankan Airlines planes on these short routes do not have new equipment with an updated business class cabin). Much of what we read online seems to suggest that Sri Lankan Airlines flights are often delayed or cancelled. We are assuming that, should this happen, having business class tickets might ensure that we are re-booked first (hopefully causing the least impact to our trip).

Has anyone flown coach or business class on Sri Lankan Airlines from Bangkok to Colombo recently (or another short haul flight)? We would be grateful for advice on whether it would be worth it to pay a bit more for business over economy in this case. Thank you so much!
