    Ah ok. Will they cancel their domestic flights from RML for first week of March? Do you think RML have enough space for expanding their airport tarmac for more planes to be parked? Its a good sign biz jets are using RML these days.

    An unclear picture of the SriLankan A320neo.. Saw it on Instagram, so thought of sharing. Let's wait for good pictures from more spotters in the coming few weeks..

    Haleef,

    Thanks for the picture. 4R-ANA is now in Hamburg. This picture was taken in Toulouse and its too big for A320neo. Could be an A350 ? �� when does the picture was taken? I thought all three A350s had been painted in full white.

    Well spotted ! She has a beautiful peacock logo in the tail !

    Rusline CRJ1 operated as ZF7749/50 which is the flight number of the Azur Air flights to DME-CMB for past few weeks. What could be the reason Azur Air is using 50 seater aircraft instead of their usual B767.

    Yep. Both QR and EK has to use remote gates because all the other gates with aero bridges are occupied as you can see from the photographs. I took this picture on 10th January 2017. Flying to BKK via MLE and DXB. Last picture was taken from EK652 (A6-ENX). The aircraft on the picture is A6-EPS which will be operated as EK349 (initially SIN - DXB via CMB because of the runway refurbishment CMB-SIN sector was cancelled) later that day.

    Coincidence! Two QR and Two EK are parked next to each other. CMB must be filled with many aircraft and I am sure aircraft parking will also be an issue this time.

    Nice selection of destinations MLE, DXB & BKK. If you don't mind, may I know why you couldn't fly nonstop from CMB-BKK instead of long flight CMB-MLE-DXB-BKK. Is the CMB-BKK nonstop flights are full? I think EK operates around 6 daily flights on DXB-BKK and most of the EK flights on BKK route operated onboard A380. Did you get chance to fly on A380 this time?

    Any idea about this?

    CMB - BKK flights are full. Same goes for EK CMB -DXB sector. So my only option was CMB-MLE-DXB-BKK to be at BKK on 12th January. All EK flights between DXB-BKK operated by A380 except EK350 which is operated by Boeing 77W (Red eye flight). All EK A380s to BKK is also overbooked by a very significant amount (about 90% of the flight filled with connecting pax) so had to take B77W which turns out to be a full flight as well. I got the chance to fly the two class A380 last December from BKK to DXB.

    Must be Chennai bound flight because the flight is UL121. Has it been diverted from CMB to HRI before heading to MAA ? Why?

    Truly nice set of pictures. Thanks for sharing with us !

    Any idea what is Expoair FK27 doing at Ratmalana? I thought it was leased to Pakistan or some other country.

    I can see also other flights like EK etc.. are still circling above tamil nadu and couldn't land the planes in MAA.
