(Business) Larnaca-Asia R/T, SriLankan Airlines, fr 1.085 EUR incl. taxes

Really good Business class fares out of Larnaca, Cyprus to Asia.
If you fly to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Jakrata, Tokyo with this fare ans credit the flights to British Airways Executive Club, you will earn 640 Tier Points from the journey ([40 + 140 + 140] x 2).

It seems that there is no buy latest date. I hope they will keep this fare alive long time.

I can price it on Priceline for example. (caution: the price is in USD)

If you are unfamiliar with how to replicate the fare from the result from ITA Matrix website, you can use this website.

I hate giving people a direct answer but I am pleased to help how to find the answer.

You may need to add advanced commands in the search at ITA Matrix and copy the entire site on the result page.
After that, go to bookwithmatrix.com and paste the text into their search field.
Then you get the result with links to other online travel agents.

Great find!

Only downside is that LCA is not always easy or cheap but to get into from many European airports.

Really good fare, can open jaw.

Not checked other connections but MLE also prices up at around EUR1300, albeit only 440 TP's.

A3 does have often some decent fares, gives M&B collectors the 4 segments needed.

Do the rules allow for a long stopover in Colombo ? Like a week ? For free would be best :-)

Just read the first post carefully, then you will find your answer.
There is no limitation of the length of stopover beside of the ticket length (maximum stay: 6 months).

A nice fare (albeit this was mentioned sometime before with not much fanfare further), but like that last fare, does not seem worth the hassle to get to LCA and back since there are already some not too bad fares from other places in Europe to Asia in J.
So unless if someone is close to LCA or just want to try an exotic airline (UL), for me at least it's not worth the hassle to get down to LCA since adding up the costs and time, the total price will come to the prices starting in other EU locations.

Cheers!
