China Eastern is known to be the price breaker for the one-hour ride from Colombo to the Maldives. British Airways/SriLankan Airways and Emirates are all around $160 for the one-way.
Booking with Avios is not much help since ba.com adds an $82 cash charge to the 4,500 points.
The Indian booking site makemytrip.com is the only site I could find that prices out the fare correctly. China Eastern flies several times a week.
Good deal! But the best part – the fare is refundable against a fee of $8.
