    TRAVEL ALERT: Sri Lankan Airline staff ask for varying sums of CASH at airport as “baggage fee”. They will quote different fees for same bags ranging from what comes in their mind. These staff members will CLOSE THE FLIGHT for you if you start asking for written Airline Policy yet they will board other passengers. The staff will not provide you wit their names and will disappear if you insist on getting their name. The staff will only provide passengers with hand written notes.
    Also if one reports this behaviour to the Customer Service they will CHARGE YOU A FEE TO CHANGE YOUR FLIGHT.
    I am reporting their staff to Chinese Government and other should be encuraged to do the same. Also people need to put this on social media so people stop using this airline.

    I am travelling route excluding destined to / from North, Central and South America. Check-in baggage says 158cm but all bags that I have seen for purchase ranges from 168 to 180 cm. Does dimensions have to be fixed 158cm or can it go upto 180cm.

    Kind regards,

    I had booked my flight from Mumbai to Montreal(Canada) Booking # 220374121. My luggage was booked from Mumbai to Montreal. I did not receive my luggage at Montreal. When I approached the Air Transit person at Montreal told me that I should have taken my baggage at Paris. Can you please look into the matter and get my luggage delivered at Regina, Saskatchewan Canada.
    My cell # is +1 3065319220.
