    Unfortunately I exceeded my bandwidth limit last evening, so I was unable to load the pictures and therefore, post the trip report.

    Serendib - there were so many passengers on the flight, justifying the need for an A340! And no, sign of the new terminal construction just yet, sadly

    Banuthev - Thank you! yes, it is a 767 belonging to Abercrombie & Kent, a luxury travel company from the UK.

    Channa - thank you so much

    Skyline - yes, I intend to post the trip report here, but due to time constrains and a slow internet, I am unable to do so, for now.
    Yes, ADF does have some nice interiors, but why would they update it on a plane leaving the fleet soon? It would have made a lot more sense if all A330s had the updated interiors: ALC and ALG, I'm assuming still have the old interiors...
    Shame about the A310 yes, but think about it from an avgeek context - isn't it nice and refreshing to see an A310? Compared to the usual A320s and A330s? And they are increasingly rare so I think for us its good to see, but not so good for the passenger traveling

    hehe.. I flew on that 9K-ALC back in 2010. This bird has such a poor interior and seats. any idea if KU has done cabin upgrades for their A306 or A313 after 2010?

    Banuthev - I highly doubt if KU have refurbished the interiors of the A310s and A300s. But have you seen the new factory fresh A320?! It looks amazing! And they also have A330s on order, so slowly the classics will disappear

    It's nice to hear KU is going to upgrade their ageing fleet. Yeah i saw that A320WL (9K-AKE CN6350) with sharklets wearing the classic KU livery. Do you know how many A320WLs and A332s they are planning to get them on lease by Apr 2015? I think those 3 x A320s, 5 x A306s and 3 x A313s going to be phased out very soon. May be their 4 x A343s and 2x B772s will be replaced by A359s after 2019 if i am not mistaken.

    Awesome to see this beauty cruising around Sri Lanka. the new business class looks fantastic. Is it true that it is equipped with wi-fi? And that's interesting that Transaero is in Colombo. I checked their website and Wikipedia, and cannot find any information about flights to Colombo. Maybe its a one time charter? I thought they would park on the remote stand though.
