Tried to bump us off the flight. Said it was overbooked. Said they had already checked in other passengers. 10 mins of me saying no way will i fly in economy they then offered two business rather that the four we needed. Eventually they relented and gave us our boarding cards for the seats. It turned out that they were bumping us because some crew needed to fly to Male, where it stopped on route to london. 1 hr and 20 mins flight.
They would have thrown us off the flight for that. The plane was empty after Male.
However,because we had stood up to them, they were not happy and expressed it all the way to London. Childish, unprofessional, and actually stupid.
The planes are old and broken down. Not much works anymore. My seat was broken on the way ouy and there was no entertainment system.
Having had a wonderful holiday in Sri Lanka it was spoilt by their selfishness. They are not looking after their county`s interests, just their own.
