My new wife & I are off to Sri Lanka on honeymoon in September, flying from Heathrow. I've seen on the SriLankan Airlines website that they offer an upgrade auction where you can bid for a business class upgrade (I think this has been offered since May this year). Has anyone tried this, and if so, would you mind letting me know what your winning or losing bid was? I know that the successful level will depend on individual flight circumstances, but at least it will be a starting point. Also, has anyone had any experience of being upgraded for free?
Also, on some of the older threads it looks like SriLankan provided alcoholic drinks for free in economy, but these posts are from a few years ago. Does anyone know if this is still the case?
