Trip Report – Awesome Business Class on SriLankan A330-300 – AA oneworld Redemption LHR-CMB

Wow, what an unexpected award redemption! The 10.5 hour flight was on a brand new A330 from London (LHR) to Colombo (CMB). Awesome service, a great seat / lie-flat bed, wifi, yummy food and a large movie library on a fast and responsive IFE system.

The reverse herringbone seat was super comfortable for lounging and the lie-flat bed was great for a four hour nap. USB and power plugs are available at each seat, which is essential if you plan to use the international wifi. You’ll also receive a full size pillow, smaller pillow, and blanket. Champagne, a menu, headphones, eye shades, and socks were provided prior to takeoff.

I had a ton more pictures to share, but unfortunately there was an iPhone / water incident in Sri Lanka and those are no longer available. A few other points I want to hit on though, as well as a few pictures from SriLankan’s website.

  • Wif was available for the entire trip, though you were required to purchase a package. It wasn’t super cheap, but wasn’t outrageous either.  A 100MB package was $25 USD
  • The Airbus featured a nighttime starry sky as well as colorful mood lighting
  • The IFE library was impressive and the moving map displayed multiple outside views
  • Service was fantastic. Drinks were constantly refilled and someone was always checking in to see if we wanted anything additional
