Flights Hong Kong to Bangkok

IMG 3133Trip Index (what we have published so far):

For my trip to Colombo, I initially booked myself onto the flights from Hong Kong to Singapore and onwards to Colombo with Cathay Pacific. Unfortunately, Cathay Pacific decided to change all flights to Colombo and drop the Singapore-Colombo flights entirely. The only available flight in a Premium cabin was SriLankan Airlines from Hong Kong to Colombo, giving me a 12 hour layover in Hong Kong.

IMG 3139Read on to find out why you should think twice about flying SriLankan.

My initial idea was to use the Cathay Pacific Business Lounge, but that proved impossible in the morning as I could not get a SriLankan Airlines boarding pass. In the afternoon, the lounge invitation for SriLankan was just for the Plaza Premium Lounge. This is also a Priority Pass lounge – most Priority Pass lounges aren't 'ideal' and neither was this one.

IMG 3140The inbound airplane was about an hour late and boarding time showed 20 minutes late. Boarding eventually commenced about 45 minutes past the initial departure time.

The A330 was fresh from a Business Class refurbishment and featured the latest lie-flat Business Class product that SriLankan uses. It indeed looked stylish. It's a far cry from the Cathay Pacific Business Class Mini Suites, but it's a straightforward 2-2-2 configuration with a wide seat pitch.

IMG 3141There is a brand new entertainment system with a fancy remote that looks and feels much like an Apple TV remote. The seat goes all the way flat but leaves a number of 'breaking zones' – mattress padding would help on longer flights.

The ride to Bangkok was just 2 hours-long and we eventually left for there one hour late. While I tested my seat before departure (and to take pictures undisturbed) I realized that my seat would not adjust anymore once in the air. The cabin crew tried to help, but had no useful suggestions besides telling me to press reset.

The entertainment system powered up, but I had no movies. I thought I missed it in the fancy menu options, but no, they showed on everybody else's screen, just not on mine. Several resets later and we still could not figure out why.

Dinner was just OK. The pictures look better than how it tastes. It somehow tasted off but I can't really say why. The champagne served was excellent, though.
