Meet Up & Tips Thread AUH-CMB-CGK fare:

TIPS

PSA: You WILL receive TPs and Avios even on promotional fare I Class (the no miles restriction only applies to UL's own programme).
1. The footrest on the Neo is pretty useless. It's not deep enough to hold both feet, and too high for anyone over 5ft!
2. The IFE on the Neo is crisp, but the screens on the A321-200s are also very good - they fold out from the central armrest
3. Despite the 2300 departure time from AUH, meals are provided - and thus the lights come on. There's no blindfold in the UL miniature amenity kit, so bring your own.
4. Even with the seat in front of you fully reclined, there is plenty of space to get out
5. Despite the IFE and power boxes, there is a huge amount of legroom (even for me at 6ft).
6. Upon arrival into CGK, try and grab a golf-buggy to Passport Control. It is free, and tipping is hugely frowned upon (there's a sign) - it's much quicker than walking.
7. Dependent on your passport, you may have to fill in an Immigration form. UL do not stock them onboard.
8. Once through to the baggage hall, grab a Customs form, UL wont provide this on the plane, but you'll need it to exit into the main arrivals area.
9. If using Grab Taxi (around 60% cheaper than the official airport taxis), head to the right once through into the main Arrivals area. It will lead into the car park, where you will meet your driver.
10. UL use Check-In Desks C5-C9 - between entrances 2 and 3. There is Security upon entry, but only for your baggage.
11. The Saphire CGK lounge has poor air-con, but decent drinks and acceptable food choices. Good wifi too, with views of the runway, so you can spot your plane landing. The buffet area has the best air-con if you're warm.
12. There is no Fast Track for UL passengers, and be cautious of the Ladies Only Lane at security - which often has shorter queues, but which I couldn't use.
13. If it's a bussed departure from CMB (clue:the downstairs gates) don't bust a gut to kick your heels in the lounge. J-class passengers are the very last ones to be picked (by a dedicated bus). If you are last minute, let one of the supervisors know and he/she will facilitate your passage through security. This can be a successful ploy if you are simply impatient and have a J-class bc
14. At CGK UL will check bags on separate tickets to final destination -- reportedly this holds even where non-OneWorld carriers are involved.

Can you buy this trip on the UL site from the USA? I changed to the UAE location, but did not go to the payment page.

I'm flying Sri Lankan Singapore - CMB - LHR soon and was surprised to see they have a kind of 'book the cook' service in Business with quite an extensive menu.

Does anyone know which hotel they generally put up over nighting J transit passengers in?

They're pretty comfortable actually - I was able to nap perfectly well on the mid-haul sectors. Not quite as good as a flat bed, but for the price...

I absolutely adore UL, SIN-CMB-LHR was my route for a long time although I havent had need to be in Europe recently

ive only ever been put in this hotel:
https://www.tajhotels.co.uk/our-prop...arden-colombo/

with full board. Last time I was there I think there was refurbished and non-refurbished rooms, and I think I was put in a non-refurbished, although it was still absolutely delightful

the breakfasts are especially nice but the dinner was good too

cant fault at all

The fare has been adjusted since a few days back, so no more cheap UAE to Indonesia via Colombo. The revenue management at Sri Lankan must have realised that there's too many TP runs done on the fare.

Still seeing plenty of inventories from now till the 3rd week of May for $666 on SriLankan Airlines's website, make sure you put AUH (Abu Dhabi)- CGK instead of DXB (Dubai) - CGK. When used the currency converter build in the website, it does show as $630, so lesser the devil (no puns!)

Nice. But it's not clear how to access this beneficence. It looks as though it could be targeted - or the discounts are already built into the sub-500 c-class fares from AUH to CGK

I'm still seeing good availability for this fare from DXB/AUH up until May.

I'm not sure that's the case regarding management - a friend and I recently did a DXB-CMB-CGK run and aside from the first leg (which was only full in J because I'm 99% sure they OpUp'ed a ton of people with an overbooked economy), there were a reasonable amount of free seats on the rest of the legs. Aside from the promotional email above posted by others (I've gotten one as well), we amusingly received an e-mail saying they'd extended their business class sale whilst waiting for our flight, so I reckon they're keen to try and fill these seats up.
